Mr. Electric Of San Antonio
20770 US Highway 281 N, San Antonio, TX 78258
They are a bait and switch operation. We contracted for a specific wiring job, but the electrician wrote down the wrong specs. The total job was around $4K and we paid him $1,500 ($1,100 for work done that day and $400 to be applied to completing the job). When we called the electrician about the estimate having the wrong wiring, he said that he was going to install what we wanted even though it wasn't on the work order. We cancelled the job and asked for a refund. The owner called us (with the electrician sitting there) and said anyone could make a mistake. We insisted on a refund and all at once the initial invoice changed, we were "magically" charged a service call, and only got a $250 refund of the $400. So I'd tell my best friend to keep looking.
Town & Country Veterinary Hospital
10350 Bandera Rd, San Antonio, TX 78250
Town & Country has the best hours I've encountered for veterinary clinics. I appreciate the weekend hours as it's almost impossible to take my cats in during the week with a more than full-time job. Dr. Spillers was very attentive and the staff was very friendly. They exhibit a lot of empathy for your pets and for you. They do tend to be pricey for some of their services and the front desk needs some organization to cut back the time on processing payments. My cat got a little antsy waiting in his carrier while I was trying to pay and the staff had to confirm what to charge for before she could take my credit card. In my opinion, that should have all been worked out before they presented the bill to me. Despite that however, overall, I am a fan of this veterinary clinic.
Ayala & Associates Driving School
5015 De Zavala Rd Ste. 102, San Antonio, TX 78249
My daughter really enjoyed learning to drive at Ayala. The owner/instructor is top-notch and very good with this generation of teenagers. The students all seemed to like him and paid attention in class, which is saying a lot for 4 nights a week, 2 hours a night for 4 weeks. All of the driving teachers were very qualified and treated the teens with respect. My only 'complaint' is that we weren't told in time that DPS required a certificate of attendance from her high school so my daughter was unable to get her permit over Christmas break (she has a December birthday). The attendance office at her school only provides the documents on Tuesdays and she didn't know to ask until the Thursday before break. They had very flexible hours for the actual driving lessons, which was great. Other than not having a printed checklist of required paperwork, this driving school provided excellent service at a reasonable price. I highly recommend this driving school and feel like my daughter was comfortable behind the wheel right away.
