I really love this school I only wish the funds were available to send my two. I had done a tour of the school and I was really impressed by the teacher to student ratio. I also liked the fact that they taught several languages to the students and the computers were also in other languages. The school was small, but has so much to offer. If the funds become available I would be happy to send my three to enjoy the interactive learning, language studies, challenging curriculum, and cultural festivals.
I went to America's Best for the "great" deal. I signed up for the free eye exam program they had. Before my membership had expired they were trying to get me to resign up and extend the contract. The customer service is pleasant. My last visit I was called into the back rather quickly, in the back waiting room I had a 30 minute wait to see the doctor. I was then in and out in a matter of a few moments. They gave me ample time to look over the glases they had, but I decided to stick with contacts. To get the contacts at reasonable prices though you have to purcahse 12 boxes which can ad up to alot.
I saw the promotion on TV and it was time to have an eye exam so I decided to give Dr's Vision Works a try. The wait wasn't that long from my appointment time. The staff was pleasant and the exam went well. When it came time to pick my selection, the glasses that had part of the promotion weren't exactly to my liking. When you add on the break resistant lenses and the other "extras" so it doesn't look like I'm wearing my grandma's glasses it was nearly $200. They did have the glasses as advertised.
Walking into the resturant the smells were delicious. Ethiopian music played in the background adding to the atmosphere. The portions of food were a nice size and reasonably priced. Food, drins, and tips came to about $15.00 which wasn't bad for the portions. I really enjoyed the mango juice, not something you taste every day.
The food at Queen of Sheba was wonderful. We didn't sit at a regular table, instead we eat in this weaved basket table, that is traditional to Ethiopia. The food was really delicious and the menu has is in English with descriptions to let the customers know what the items are. The portions are large and the prices are reasonable, you can order a meal and spend ten dollars. They also give you time to sit and let your food digest without rushing the bill over. The also have authentic deserts and coffee.
It's a small family owned business that sells food that they make and other grocery store/convenience items. We stopped in to get a Philly cheese steak and soda. The prices were reasonable and the Philly was really good. It didn't take long for the to make the Philly, very quick. It is small though and he isles are crammed with different items.
I had went to there maternity ward as I was having trouble with my pregnancy. They were extremely supportive, took tons of tests and monitored me. It turned out to be nothing major, but I felt like I was in very good hands. The doctor, though young looking, was very knowledgeable and dedicated to making sure me and my baby were fine.
The price is very reasonable with all it has to offer. There is always a versatile selection of art to see. Sometimes you love it, sometimes the pieces make you question what art really is. If you become a member you can get in free to see the museum and it is free for kids under six which can make an inexpensive afternoon out, especially if you pack a picnic lunch.
I can't recommend for the following reasons. One the wait was nearly an hour from our scheduled appointment. Two the waiting area is extremely small with. It is not child friendly, or geared towards children. Third my daughter, she was only three at the time, was seperated from me to go into the room to be cleaned, which I did not like. Fourth after her teeth were cleaned no one thought it was necessary to explain what was done. I had to ask and wait for someone to take the time to explain what was done to my daughter's mouth. Fifth they had scratched my daughters gum which was bleeding and ended up swelling.
They do an adequate job, the office hours are reasonable for working parents providing longer hours then some other places. The staff can be impersonal at times. My five year is very capable of answering questions about what ails her. However the nurses and staff continue to ask me. They are working on this though. Our last visit the doctor asked her what was wrong and questions involving her more in the visit. The waiting room is on the small side, with no space to make it kid friendly. The rates are posted on receiving copies of paper work and they accept walk ins.
