This hospital and the very knowledgable doctor possibly saved my child's life. He had a rare tumor and we went through a very scarey time. Dr. Gamble came through for us! He is a specialist at Lucille Packard. We never came across a rude staff member at Lucille Packard. They were all so friendly and caring. My son was misdiagnosed in Las Vegas and call it mother's intuition but I just knew that doctor was wrong. I took him 9 hours away to Palo Alto, where we saw Dr. Gamble for a second opinion. He knew how far we had come to see him and how worried we were about our son. He also knew that the original diagnosis was wrong. He got us in for an MRI immediately instead of making us wait until the next day. Dr. Gamble correctly diagnosed the tumor in my child and performed the surgery to remove it. He is a superb doctor! It was worth every 9 hour trip and every penny spent to get the best health care for my son! Thanks Lucille Packard and thanks Dr. Gamble!
He is sooooooo good with my 3 boys. Always compassionate and sincere. We moved to Vegas 2 1/2 years ago and Dr. Bond was recommended by another doctor. This is without a doubt the best recommendation I have ever received. The nurses there are wonderful as well. They know us on a first name basis which is a new experience for me at any doctor's office. 2 of my sons have had surgery for unrelated issues and although Dr. Bond wasn't able to do the surgeries himself, he made sure to find us a highly qualified doctor that could. He is just superb!
PROS: Knowledgable and friendly staff. Available when needed.
I was recently a patient at mountain view, giving birth to a beautiful baby boy. Overall, the staff is very friendly although there are a few bad apples. We all know that unfortunately, some people enter the medical field for the money when they really don't have any bedside manners or compassion for the people in their care. I'm sure this is the case for all hospitals so I can't hold that against them. I had an emergency c-section and to my shock, the epidural didn't work in spots so I felt the cut! They took care of that problem immediately of course and still delivered my baby quickly to avoid any further problems. Afterwards, they made my 3 day stay as pleasant as possible by giving me my pain medication right on time when I needed it, offering help for breastfeeding, and taking superb care of my newborn. That's all I needed.
We have a pug puppy and started taking her to VCA on Spring Mountain. I lucked up by finding a good vet on the first try! Everyone there was so friendly and you can tell they all really care about the animals. It's not just a job to them. Also, you don't need an appointment which is really good for me as well. Friendly people, great customer service, and they truly care for your pet. Couldn't ask for more! As long as we're living in Vegas, this will be where I take my precious Katey.
PROS: Don't need appointment.
My 8 year-old son recently had surgery and had to go through months of physical therapy. We went to Kelly Hawkins and Associates 3 times a week for his therapy and they were absolutely fantastic! They are all so great with kids, not to mention adults. Every member of their staff, from receptionist to therapist, was a joy to be around. They were all so nice and friendly. My son had to take them all cookies as a big THANK YOU! He went from being very discouraged about his physical limitations to almost 100% recovered and full of confidence. While all of the therapists deserve a big round of applause, Corey and "Spivey" were my son's favorites. I highly recommend Kelly Hawkins and Associates on Howard Hughes Parkway to any parent that wants to ensure their child has the best experience possible in what can be a very trying time. Thanks a million guys!
PROS: Friendly, devoted staff.
CONS: Absolutely none!
My husband and I have been saying we need to visit this restaurant to see what it's all about. We did and were both very pleased. The atmosphere is great for family dining, superb service, and the food was really good too! Portions are huge so if you get an appetizer, as we did, plan to take home your entree! Worth every penny.
I have been to a few doctors since moving to Vegas, trying to find the right one for me. Well, I finally tried Dr. Prince and I am so glad I did. She is so easy to communicate with because she actually takes the time to listen. But, best of all imo, she is so very thorough! I don't think I have ever seen a physician be so understanding while also being so attentive to every aspect of a patient's health. Yep, it would be great if they were all like her!
Memphis Championship Barbecue is my husband's favorite restaurant and one of my top picks! It is great for us because they have food very similar to Barbecue restaurants back home in the southeast. If you just moved to Vegas and are missing that southern hospitality and SWEET TEA, you must check out this restaurant. Don't forget to ask for the creamed corn as one of your sides! We have been to the Warm Springs location and the South Rainbow location and had really good dining experiences at both. However, the Rainbow location had SUPER FAST SERVICE! Our food is usually on the table within minutes. If you insist on a fancy restaurant atmosphere, don't bother going. (That should be obvious to anyone walking in the door there.) If you are looking for a great family-friendly restaurant with good food and affordable prices, I highly recommend!
PROS: Great prices and great food.
CONS: Barbecue is not just like my family made it back home, but still yummy.
