Dr. Spreen's office is one of the coolest dentists' office I've been to. There is a television above the chair so that you can actually watch a movie while he works. I used to have that when I got my teeth cleaned as a kid....it was great! It helps a lot to take the "scare-factor" away from the "dentist" perception. Dr. Spreen also has a solid staff of hygenists.
Dr. Sherman is truly a great dentist. His practice is really up to date with the latest technologies and he is very thorough in his work. I love how he has excellent hygenists who are caring to not be too aggressive with the cleaning. Dr. Sherman also gives free teeth bleaching for all new clients, a very nice service.
Dr. Michael Koczarski's office is open and very kid-friendly. The staff goes out of their way to put you and your child at ease, to the point that you can even schedule an appointment ahead of time just to go in and visit so you can get acquainted with the office environment. The office is unfortunately located in Woodinville (a little far), but for the pleasant environment and service he delivers to me, it's well worth it.
If your are wondering where you can bring your kids so that they'll actually "enjoy" their dentist visit, this is the place to go! The office environment puts kids at ease throughout their visit. The kids even get to pick what DVD movie they get to watch during their appointment. This small touch ensures that the kid will enjoy what they are watching and will pay less attention to the treatment (very helpful). The hours are a little restrictive though.
Dr. Constance J. Brumm MD, ABFP works at Bellevue Family Medicine Associates near Overlake Hospital. I go here because it is convenient, offers both family and general practice services, and is a nice atmosphere with friendly staff, and good customer service. There are also several other knowledgeable doctors in the same office as well.
Dr. Chao-Ching Wu works at Lakeshore Clinic in Totem Lake, Kirkland. She is a terrific doctor who is extremely willing to spend time with you to see how you are doing, both medically and otherwise. She involves you in the medical process, by telling you about what is going on, providing treatment options, and allowing you to make an informed decision. She's great!
Had a car serviced there twice because they did an excellent job and were honest both times. They gave us several options/suggestions for keeping the price down when we were paying out of pocket, and the work they did was top notch. The car looks like new after they fixed the scratch.
When I got my bumper fixed at Queen City Auto Rebuild, I really liked the work they did. They are very well known in the area and I have heard of a lot of recommendations for this place from my friends. They also know how to handle many car types, as I've noticed a lot of nice car brands getting serviced there, such as Porsche and Jaguar.
I like Kelly's Auto Body in Bellevue for minor repair work. They do terrific work and I always find them to be quite inexpensive after I compare prices with other places. They guaranteed the fendor work they did for me for as long as I owned by car. I found that to be a really great promise, such that I can go back anytime to have it redone if I'm not satisfied.
I like Dougs Auto in Factoria and have heard of others having good experiences here. They are conveniently located in Bellevue, and their work is good. I did have an issue about their estimated completion date, since it turned out that the work wasn't done till after the date they initially promised, but the work was done ok, so it ended well.
