I totally agree, Smile Care has got to be the worst dental service I've ever gone to. I actually cancelled my HMO dental insurance (smile care) because it was so awful and the only offices they let you visit are the horrible Smile Care ones which look more like a warehouse than a hygenic dental office. I pay full price now for my dentist but love gonig to him. I was also fitted for a night guard and his hygentist did an excellent job, I would highly recommend Dr. Donnelly.
A fabulous italian restaurant. Food and service is excellent. This is probably my favorite place to go out for Italian food. It can get very busy on the weekend, so we usually like to go during the week. The decor is warm and simple but stylish at the same time with several beautiful "luna" painting from local artists displayed on the wall. Dinner menu and prices can be seen on http://www.bellalunasandiego.com/index.html, along with complete wine list. An excellent choice for a romantic dinner or upscale group setting. Favorites of mine - Mozzarella e Pomodoro (Antipasti) and Galleto al Forno (petit chicken breast) Also the Tierimisu is the best I've had in a long time.
Sportmart has a very large selection of sneakers, sports equipment, clothing and sporting goods. I've shopped here a few times and always found what I needed. They have a huge selection of different sneakers and the best part is they are all organized by what type of sneaker they are for easy selection. (running sneakers, cross-trainers, walking sneakers,ect.) The best selection I have found anywhere locally. The prices are pretty good and alot of times you can find what you want on sales. Another thing I like is the fairly large selection of workout clothes and really good quality shorts and tanks.
Excellent place to bring your pets if they have eye problems. Some breeds of dogs (such as pugs) tend to be prone to eye problems and sometimes ordinary veterinarian offices aren't equipped to handle delicate issues. I found them while doing some research online. My dog had some trauma to one of his eyes when he was playing around in the backyard and although he was checked out and treated by my vet, he developed a brownish spot in the white part of that same eye. So it's really a good thing to be ableto see a vet that actually specializes in treatments of the eye to get an accurate diagnosis of the problem.
Located in convenient location across from the home depot on genesee ave. Very large selection of eyeglasses and sunglass frames. Dr. Weiss is one of the two eye doctors who works here, and is extremely nice. She helped me out with fitting for a difficult prescription lense. The thing I like about my experience was that she lets you try on a sample pair to see how they feel for a week, and then if you want to try a different type for a week to compare the two they let you do that. This way you know you're getting the best lense for your eyes and can make sure your 100% happy with them.
Burlington Coat Factory is a good place to go when you want brand names and good quality for cheap! As thier name implies, they carry a good selection of coats although I've never gone there for that reason. I go for the shoes. They have a ton of great shoes that are really inexpensive. I've also found great deals of Calvin Klien jeans, brand name suits and great clothes for work. The last time I went I got 3 skirts, 2 tops, and a couple pairs of nice shoes for under $100!
When I was getting ready to move to San Diego a couple of years ago, I looked around at different movers to drive our furniture down, but kept hearing horror stories from friends and relatives about thier experiences with different moving companies. (from over charging after the move, to furniture never making it there) So we decided to move ourselves and simply rent a moving truck. After researching a few companies, Penske stood out as being the cheapest and having the newest trucks to lease. We had asmooth trip from day one (except for the weather). The truck he got was clean, well cared for and only a year old. Since it was a five day drive for us, it really made a difference to have a good, reliable truck. Pick up and drop off were equally easy and quick. They also have after-hours drop off, where you can just leave the truck on thier lot and drop keys into the mail slot. Very easy and great rates!
Bath and Body has always been one of my favorite places to shop for gifts. This paticular store is located in the Westview shopping plaza. Have shopped here several times. The staff is always friendly and helpful, and I love going in there because it always smells soo good! They have many gift sets you can buy here and many different types of soaps, bodywash and lotions. Paticular favorite of mine is Juniper Breeze, it's very pretty. They also carry anti-bacterial hand gels and hand soaps which I like to use during the 'cold' season when everyone at work is sick!
Henry's marketplace is a great place to get natural and organic foods at. They carry a large variety of organic and natural fruits, vegetables, breads, frozen items and bath&beauty items. I sometimes do full food shoppings here. They have a deli where you can get fresh made sandwhiches and pastas, a bakery which makes fresh breads and muffins daily and have a large selection of natural meats (raised without artificial hormones or steroids). My all time favorite thing that I get here and can't find anywhere else is the Wallaby organic lofat maple yogurt with real maple syrup. They also frequently have great sales on fresh fruit. (5 oranges for $1, and a bunch of bananas for $1.05)
Excellent staffing service! I had a very positive experience with AppleOne Staffing. I found them while doing a job search on monster.com for positions in my area. One job offer in paticular seemed interesting and upon reading the description I discovered it was a posting from AppleOne. I'm usually a little skeptical about going through an employment service, because of unfavorable experiences in the past (bad matches, no matches, waste of my time). But I am completely satisfied with the job my rep didand couldn't be happier with my current position which I got through the agency. My rep really seemed to care that I was happy at this position and stopped by twice to see me to make sure everything was to my liking at the new job which was very impressive to me.
