When a car is damaged by an accident or weather, what can be repaired and what must be replaced? Or is it time to buy a new car?
I usually don't write reviews but I do read reviews so I felt it was only right to write a review for A+. This is a very good mechanic who is not out to rob you took my car there on a Saturday and left the same day. Highly recommend this place for any service needs.
I ran into this place because I had a flat tire and Wayne fixed my tire and more. The customer service was great and the work was spot on. Would highly recommended.
I brought my car in several times for services. They have no sense of urgency. None what so ever. They will hold you car 2-3 days before they get started on it. The first 2 times, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. After the 3rd time. I realize it just the way that they do business and to them it okay. They will hold your car hostage for at least 3 days for a simple repair. If you are not in a hurry and don't mind leaving your car their for a minimum of 3 days. This is the place for you.
This collision center has thieves working for them. At the time I was hit, I was carrying money that belonged to my employer and it was in my trunk when I turned the car over to Nalley. Naturally, in dealing with a wreck I forgot about the money. They kept my car for a week and I know they were in my trunk because posters from my backseat were moved to the trunk. When I got the car back, the money was not in the bag where I left it, which means they went through my belongings and unzipped my bag to find the money. The manager covered for his employers claiming that no one on his team would do that. DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS LOCATION.
Dr. Wright is very caring, and will make time to see pets in an emergency, even when booked. His staff are very professional and kind. Great organization!
This business has operated in the Lithonia area for decades. The knowledgeable Master Mechanics provide great service. They are forthright, honest family-men who treat you as they would want someone to treat themselves or their family members. Reasonably price and they stand by their work. What more could you ask for in a mechanic or automobile technician?
I was stranded and they came to me...fixed my car in a timely fashion! Where Sam's couldn't replace the battery that I bought from them-they did!!! I'm impressed because not too many good mechanics here in GA.(crooks)!!!! Oh yea...their new number is (404)645-9703
NO STARS!!! THEY ARE A DISGRACE TO MECHANICS EVERYWHERE AND I AM ONE OF 15 YEARS!!!THEY DAMAGED MY VEHICLE( DENTS IN THE FRONT AND REAR OF THE VAN) THEY TRIED TO REPAIR IT WITH SPRAY PAINT, THEY STOLE OR ALLOWED MY SON'S BICYCLE TO BE STOLEN OUT THE VAN WITH NO BROKEN GLASS OR FORCED ENTRY. DO NOT, I REPEAT- DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR TO THEM. IT TOOK A MONTH AND A HALF TO PUT A TRANSMISSION IN. YOUR VEHICLE WILL SURELY SIT IN THAT CAR GRAVEYARD THEY HAVE FOR A WHILE IF YOU DO. I TRIED TO SUPPORT BLACK BUSINESS AND THIS IS WHAT I GOT. I'M URANDU BROWN , CONSIDER THIS A WARNING!!!
I've been going to Ultimate Benz since 2009 and have always had a GREAT experience! I often chose to take it to them versus the dealer when i first purchased my Benz. From the receptionist to the technicians, David, Devon, and Ricky, my experience has always been exceptional! Especially their attention to detail and the persistence i've seen in resolving an issue. I have NO complaints and I have referred many others, in which I rarely do, who too were satisfied with their work and customer service! I always follow up with my referrals to confirm how was their experience. This is my first Benz but with their great service I would think about purchasing another :-)
I've been dealing with these guys for several years. When they decided to leave Mercedes Benz of Buckhead to open their shop in Lithonia, Ga. I decided to leave also. I wasn't happy about the long drive to get there. But when I added up the cost, it's well worth it. "Affordable, Honesty, Dependable, Reliable, Courteous, and Professional" Why go anywhere else Ultimate Benz is #1.........
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
