We were looking for a good dentist after going thru a few bad ones, and we finally found one. Although they don't do your claims for you if you spend less than $250 per visit, they're great. My hygienist Robyn is always very gentle and very friendly. I've been going there for years and never had a bad experience. Dr. Peck wanted to be a dentist since he was little, and he's doing a great job right now as a dentist. I highly recommend them. I hope he doesn't retire and be my dentist forever!
PROS: great service
CONS: they don't file your insurance claims if the bill is less than $250
I went to A Better Body when I was pregnant, I might be in my 8th month or 9th month. I walked in, they asked me to sit in the lobby to wait, they brought me a cup of water. Then they walked me into a room, it looked and felt relaxing. A lady came in (forgot her name) and asked me if I would prefer a pregnancy pillow where there was a hole on the stomach area so I could lay on my stomach and let her massage my back.
Boy it was relaxing. She asked me how much pressure I wanted and she did everything just right. Not only she didn't rush it, she gave me an extra 10 minutes of massage.
I highly recommend this place!! A word of caution for pregnant ladies, I found out from my doctor that a massage could cause labor to happen, so talk to your doctor first before getting a prenatal massage.
PROS: very friendly, very relaxing
My husband got me a gift certificate to go there a few years ago, so I went. I went there for a back massage, that lady was really good, I asked her to go as hard as possible and she did, and it felt good.
Then I went back for a full body massage. I got there like 10 minutes early because I knew I had to fill out some paper work, but I didn't get into the massage room until 20 minutes after I arrived, which was 10 minutes past my appointment time. Then the massage didn't start until 5 minutes after that. So 15 minutes was wasted already. When it was 10 minutes till the next hour, she told me that she needed to get ready for the next client, and asked me if I wanted her to work on any particular spots before she had to leave. She left probably 8 minutes before the hour. So I paid for 1 hour of full body massage, and only got like around 35 minutes of real massage because she only started the massage 15 minutes after my appointment time, and ended the massage about 10 minutes before she was supposed to end.
I felt like I was ripped off, I really liked the back massage, but I didn't enjoy the full body massage. Because of that, I don't recommend anyone going there, and I will not go back there ever again unless it's free.
PROS: good back massage
CONS: it's a ripoff on full body massage - paid for 1 hour, only got 35 minutes
When I was pregnant, I went to Dr. Bankston. She was very careful and took every precaution possible. I had consistent contractions at 31 weeks, she put me on bedrest and had me take a medication to stop my contractions. I told her that I didn't want episiotomy, she said she would do her best, but she performed it anyway. She took very good care of me, but I thought she was overly worried. She knows what she's doing.
PROS: very careful
CONS: overly worried
I broke my knee last year, went to ER, they found nothing wrong in X-Ray, but I could not straighten my leg, they advised me to find a doctor the next day. I called all over the place but could not find a doctor to see me that day. I finally found Dr. Glidden. He diagnosed me and told me what he thought was wrong and asked me to go get an MRI done the next day. I did, results came back exactly like what he said. Boy he was right on! I had surgery a few days later. I was completely knocked out, so my surgery seemed really fast to me. There was no pain, but of course I still had anethetics from the hospital. Dr. Glidden wrote me a script for a strong pain killer, but I wasn't in pain. I didn't fill the script, so I was waiting for the pain to set in, but it never did. I went for my followup checkup, he took my bandage off, I was bleeding a little but there was little or no pain. He was good, I never had any no-pain surgery until I met Dr. Glidden. I highly recommend him for any kind of bone problems you have. No pain on the incisions, but I had pain inside my knee when I was getting back to walking normal again.
Dr. Glidden is a GREAT doctor!!
PROS: no pain surgery, no pain recovery
Recommended by a friend of mine, I took my daughter there when she was sick a few months ago. My baby screamed and screamed and screamed, she really hated this doctor. I thought she was an ok doctor, I didn't know why my baby hated her so much. A month later, I got a bill from the doctor's office, I called to pay by credit card, but they said they didn't accept any kind of card and asked me to pay by a check instead. Who doesn't accept credit cards these days?! Especially at a doctor's office. Since my daughter screamed at the top of her lung and cried so much there, I don't think I'm taking her there anymore. I think she's a good doctor, just not my daughter's type. Oh, she's also an allergist.
CONS: doesn't accept credit cards
They used to be on 15th Street and Coit, and we used to go there a lot. Then they moved to Legacy and also opened up another location on Frankford and the tollway. Their menu lists the number of calories and fat grams and serving sizes, etc. so if you're health conscious, you can choose whichever dish(es) that suits your taste and calorie intake. They had pretty good food, and they still do, I just don't go there often anymore.
Don't expect to find anything exotic there, they don't have it. They have the regular Chinese stuff (food and equipment) from China and Taiwan, but if you're looking for something from other countries, they may not have it. They're centrally located, it's convenient, it's the only grocery store in "China Town". They also have a shelf or two with baked goods from people who brought them in. Some are worth a try.
If you're in the mood for fried food, they have it!! I went there only once for dim sum on a Saturday. They had a lot of fried stuff, the owner told me that they would stop serving Chinese Chinese food starting in September. They're a little hole-in-the-wall, some people really really like their food, but I thought it was just okay. Without their Chinese Chinese menu, I don't think it's even worth a visit.
A friend of mine told me about this place years ago. They have since expanded their dining room. They used to have a board right at the entrance with the date and either "Smoking" or "Non-Smoking" next to it because Plano kept changing the smoking law, very frequently I might add. They used to not open for dinner, but they do now. You will not be disappointed with their breakfast and lunches, they're super busy on the weekends, so get there early or expect to wait.
