I love the Staff at Playa Vista Apartments! My experience there was something I will not forget! Thank You!Ericka
This place is, was, a complete affront to decent people.As a resident at Canyon Pointe for 13+ months, a place with "Welcome Home" on the New Resident packet & "a constant commitment to the client's needs" on the website, I can no longer hesitate, nor be silent in "officially" apprising potential friends and neighbors, in writing, of the sub-standard conditions, or issues that continue to adversely effect my day-to-day living. The aforementioned PRETTY WORDS caught my eye & impressed me as THE PLACE for me to retire, to regroup after my surgery(s) and to feel "at ease, at-home," in doing so. It has taken a year's time for me to realize, to fully understand, AND finally to accept, they are only words of enticement. The staff here could care less about us residents. 707 MANAGEMENT CO. took over six months into my tenure and I thought it would be impossible for any company to be worse than STOUT MANAGEMENT! But I was totally wrong.My many requests, or resident ISSUES however, have met with the same non-resolution as before.. .inaction, passing the buck, and endless phone tag (with a dash or two of their white-lie-fibs added in). This is the place I calked Home & so do many others that I now call neighbor, friend, extended family or all three. For months on end, issues I have presented to the Office Staff have gone unaddressed, unanswered or simply lost in the shuffle; many times when assured of a return call, or response, I got none; I've felt altogether ignored and in-the- way or totally irrelevant. In a very real sense I feel "under foot" a "nuisance" to this Staff in asking for answers to legitimate questions. And I, WE PAY THEIR WAGES. THEY SUPPOSEDLY WORK FOR US. NOT SO. The manager, Mike, admitted when I asked, that his previous line of work was, BAR OWNER. I know from 40 year's experience that he is not a certified property manager. This place is, was, a complete affront to decent people. It could be sweet for us fixed income, elderly guys, but it's the king of con in the ultimate Vegas-shuffle for a quick buck. I was evicted for refusing to pay their $75 utility rider. They wasted at least 10,000 gallons of water every night for 5 months. That equals $365,000 worth of 5 gallon bottles at 20 cents per gallon. I'm the only one dumber than these folks.. .i kept giving them the benefit the the doubt. I even offered to fix the leaks myself.. .4th generation MasterPlumber. BEWARE y'all.
Security makes you feel like you’re a prisoner in your own home by watching your every move. I understand why they’re there but I really don’t appreciate being told I can’t leave my door open or can’t have visitors. You know, PRISON RULES. LOL The black female security guard just hangs out with other tenants yelling & laughing all night while we’re trying to SLEEP. Management & security pays no mind to the ACTUAL ratchets, drug dealers, pan handlers, etc but have petty issues with their PAYING tenants who mind their own business. Extremely incompetent & unprofessional. Patty & Rae are highly incompetent & unprofessional, they have no business being in the service industry. I’ve heard Rae talk terribly about the tenants and saw Patty asking a tenant for pills in the parking lot. SERIOUSLY?! Brendan is awesome & actually has the knowledge, experience & professionalism WiFi is awful. Musty, dirty carpets cause previous residents smoke in room & management doesn’t clean them. INFESTED with cockroaches, yes INFESTED cause we were there 3 months & sprayed numerous times. Outdated apartments in serious need of repair. Lots of holes where bugs get in. Our sink always leaked & flooded they never fixed it. Other residents are rude & start fights with you in the lobby. Coin laundry prices are high. This doesn’t even cover half of our complaints!..You’ve been warned!
Apartment was broken into in broad daylight and absolutely everything was stolen. Unfortunately as I was new grad and just recently moved here from the east coast, I didn’t have much in the way of funds to pay rent, buy a blow up, and other necessities to live , and get back and forth to work. So I came to the manager and asked for leniency until I get my first pay. I was evicted in less than 14 days. I understand that business is business, but I wasn’t a month late or anything. Really opened my eyes to the way business is run out West.
I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE AND EXPERIENCE I HAVE HELPING A FRIEND FIND A PLACE, REBECCA KING ASSISTANT MANAGER WITH HER PLEASANT AND WELCOMING PERSONALITY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND IN HELPING US CHOOSE AN APT. THAT WAS AFFORDABLE AND COMFORTABLE, PLACE IS VERY CLEAN, NO BUGS WITH A SAFE ENVIRONMENT, SECURITY AT NIGHTS, WHEN WE HAD A FEW PROBLEMS THE MAINTENANCE PERSONAL CAME ASAP TO CORRECT OUR DISCREPANCIES, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND 30 SECONDS OFF THE FREEWAY.
I loved living there. It was the best place I've lived at in Las Vegas!The company Camden is not the best.
I was there for 4 years. The place is no 5 star hotel but its not supposed to be. It offers low weekly rates for those of us who don't have credit or have bad credit. It offers a place to stay for those of us who need a fully furnished room. I made some really good friends there over the years and it hurts me to see some of the negative reviews. There are some problems of course there will be especially in that part of town and considering the type of people these kind of places attract sometime. Look past those and you will see some great people just trying to make an honest living.
This community is UNFRIENDLY TO ALL MILITARY, & may even go so far as to insinuate that military members are "stupid," as they did to my husband & other military personnel. Their "new" management are downright rude, so if you expect to be treated respectfully, go elsewhere, this isn't the place. If you have an issue within your apartment, they'll claim they never saw a "work order" for it & make it your fault for their inadequacy rather than accepting responsibility & accountability!
I moved in on may 7th 2009 on this apartment complex.Since then we stayed their for as much as 8 years and finally for some family matter we decided to move out.By then we cleaned polished and washed carpet and everything and left it spotless even though we stayed for 8 years.At the end they send me bill of 196.27 dollars and I called them to see why they charged me for cleaning Fee she told me she will get in trouble if she doesn’t charge me for cleaning fee!What the hell is wrong with this people she charged me to save her ass from getting in trouble? That’s crazy and overall apartment are filthy with bugs running around,cockroaches,homeless people pooping next to your apartment it’s crazy to live their!Wouldn’t recommend anyone to live their!Front desk ladies who work their have big attitude they shouldn’t be working their if they don’t like to assist people!Overall if their was an option I’ll givw out -5 stars.
You get what you pay for with sportsman's If you need a quick place to live that ain't gonna check your credit, then this is the place for you. If you're looking for a 5 start establishment with all the bells and whistles, go somewhere else. Rooms are decent, staff was nice, only one pool was open, neighborhood is okay at best.
Physicians and surgeons help to keep people - from infants to the elderly - as healthy as possible. These individuals provide diagnoses and treatments for a wide variety of ailments, and preventative care and early detection for more serious illnesses. Whether you love or hate going to the doctor, the fact is your physician is there to listen to your health concerns, take preventative measures against diseases and advise you on your options for staying in tip-top shape.
In 2013, there were more than 1 million doctors of medicine in the U.S., over 854,000 of which were active. Additionally, in 2012, there were about 18,000 active general surgeons in the country. It's important to know which type of physician or surgeon you need, how to choose the best one, and account for other considerations in order to stay healthy.
Patients can choose from a wide variety of physicians depending on doctor specialty and what problems they are experiencing. Here are a few of the most common types of physicians that you may see in your lifetime:
Your GP is the doctor that you go to for regular checkups, vaccines and to identify health issues. GPs can treat many different illnesses and injuries, from the common cold to a broken arm. If your health requires a second opinion or expert care, the GP will refer you to a specialist who has the skills to focus in on the issue.
Heart attacks and heart disease are some of the most common afflictions seen across the country, making cardiologists important to your long-term health. These physicians specialize in studying and treating the heart and related diseases.
Other than a GP, the dentist is likely the most common physician you'll ever see. These professionals work with the human mouth, ensuring that your teeth and gum health are up to par. Patients typically go to the dentist twice a year.
Dermatologists are focused on skin-related issues and diseases, from skin cancers, to acute acne, eczema, psoriasis, and general cosmetic concerns like aging and scars. Most will also perform annual or semi-annual mole checks to screen for any signs of melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.
If you have a number of sinus infections or have had your tonsils taken out, you've likely seen an ENT specialist. ENTs handle ailments related to the ear, nose and throat, often related to taking out tonsils and treating hearing issues.
For many women, their gynecologist and obstetrician are the same person. These professionals work with the female reproductive system to focus on reproductive health, fertility issues, prenatal care, options for new and expectant mothers, neonatal care and childbirth. OB/GYNs can also help in the early detection of breast or cervical cancer.
There are obviously a number of physicians that you can choose from, but how do you know if they're the best choice for you? Here are a few considerations to help you pick a physician:
Look at Your Insurance
Before you get down to the details, you need to verify which doctors are covered by your insurance and whether they are in or out of your carrier's network. Rates may be cheaper if the doc is in network – a doctor can be covered by your insurance but not necessarily in network. Out of network is typically more expensive. Doctors often add and drop plans, so it's important to ensure that your options are compatible with your insurance plan. Doing your homework will help you avoid unexpected expenses.
Check for Board Certification
Your physician should be certified through the American Board of Medical Specialties. Doctors must earn a medical degree from a qualified school, complete three to seven years of residency training, be licensed by a state medical board and pass one or more ABMS exams to be certified.
Examine the Reviews
Reviews of a doctor can reveal a lot about what your experience may be like. People may grade on staff friendliness, availability and effectiveness of treatment. Looking at these evaluations and getting recommendations from family and friends can direct you toward a physician for your needs.
Surgeons can literally hold your life in their hands, and it's important to find the best one that can put you at ease and treat you effectively
You need to feel comfortable with your surgeon. It's important to communicate your concerns and that your surgeon can respond adequately. Surgeons should be willing to go over the details of your procedure and answer any questions that you may have. They must take the time to discuss and address your worries.
If you're going in for surgery, you want someone that knows what they're doing and has a high success rate. Ask how often the surgeon performs this surgery and try to find one that regularly does it. This will give you peace of mind that you're in capable hands.
Your decision on a physician or surgeon can be majorly affected by the insurance plan you have. You may have insurance through employment, your spouse, your parents if you're under 26, or the marketplace if the previous options don't apply to you. It's important to understand how your insurance works to have the full picture of what you'll need to pay for.
Your insurance will have a deductible, which is the amount that you're responsible to pay for covered medical expenses. Some plans have coinsurances, where you must pay a certain percentage of the bill, and insurance will cover the rest. Co-pays state a flat rate for certain services, like paying $20 when you visit your GP or a $100 co-pay for an emergency room visit. Once you reach your out-of-pocket maximum, which will differ if you're an individual or within a family plan, your insurance may pay for 100 percent of covered medical expenses for the rest of the plan year.
If you plan to go to the doctor, need medication or have been recommended for surgery, call your insurance provider or go online to see what your plan covers. You can choose the best doctor for your needs, understand your options and prevent yourself from being blindsided by medical expenses.
Most doctors require a phone call for an appointment, although some may provide online scheduling as well. Be sure to have your insurance card with you when you set an appointment, and to bring it with you to the actual appointment. They need the ID numbers to verify your coverage, and will usually make a copy of the card for their files so you don't have to show it again unless your insurance changes.
When you call, let them know if you're a new patient, as this will require you to complete some paperwork for your first visit. Tell them the reason for your visit, such as your symptoms if you're feeling sick. It's also important to inform them if you have Medicaid and to find out if you need to bring anything to the visit, like current medications or medical records.
From here, the receptionist will likely ask what dates and times work best for you. During your call, it's important to be honest about your symptoms and the reason for your visit. This information will help the doctor treat you and give him or her an idea of what to expect. Your appointment may progress faster as a result, and the doctor can come prepared with a list of options to better care for you.
Doctors see a number of patients in a day, sometimes in 15-minute increments in areas where the physicians are in high demand. This can leave little time for doctors to perform thorough examinations, and they can end up missing certain problem indicators. While some problems, like a cold or flu, can be diagnosed in this time, more complex ailments require attention, which takes up time. Reviews can illuminate which doctors actively spend the necessary time with their patients and which ones are pressed against the clock to meet demand.
Surgery has some more dire risks attached to it, so be sure to talk to your surgeon about the potential issues that can come up as a result of your procedure. If a patient has a reaction to anesthesia, it can cause very serious complications, but this is an uncommon occurrence. Blood clots can be a significant problem after surgery, often caused by inactivity during recovery. Infections, numbness, scarring, swelling and death are all possible, but the likelihood of these issues will vary depending on the type of surgery you're undergoing. Talk to your doctor about your concerns and your risk potential.
Surgery affects people in different ways, but as you begin to emerge from anesthesia, you'll want to alert your nurse to any issues you may have. The nurse will tell you how the procedure went, what effect it will have on your condition, what to expect when you get home and how long it will take to get back to normal. If you start feeling pain, the nurse may give you medication to stop it from getting worse. When possible, it's also advised to move around to avoid blood clots from developing in your legs. This can be as simple as occasionally flexing your knee or rotating your foot.
Some surgeries are outpatient procedures, where people are released the same day. For major surgeries, patients may stay at the hospital for a few days to be monitored and address any concerns before being sent home. Discuss with your surgeon the projected length of the hospital stay and what you need to bring.
Your recovery time and follow-up expectations will vary depending on your procedure. For example, you can be expected to be on your feet within a few days of having your wisdom teeth taken out, but it may be weeks before you have fully recovered from a broken foot or heart-valve surgery. Your surgeon will give you a list of things that you'll need to do during this time, including what medications to take and when you'll be able to get back to work and other activities.
Every surgery will have a follow-up call or appointment to discuss your recovery and allow you to ask any questions about unusual symptoms or changes in your overall health. If you have a major operation, like heart surgery, it's important to make regular checkups with your doctor or a specialist to ensure that everything is normal. Visiting a doctor will help deter infection and verify that everything is healing as expected. These appointments will give you peace of mind about your state of health and ensure that any issues are caught early on.
