"They are outstanding. The cardiologist is a member of
. Everybody at the hospital explained everything from start to finish; there was no second guessing. Everybody" put me at ease considering they were checking to make sure I didn't have any blockage in my heart. They are very good. I didn't have a blockage so I didn't have to have a stint put in. They made it great and I would recommend them. I haven’t dealt with the billing department. I would absolutely use them again.

"I had asked that all my records be sent. The doctor had not found any breaks, but he did not order an MRI. I went home. No meds, nothing. They did give me crutches finally after my" friend complained rigorously. they did not send my records right away. I called on Monday to remind them (3 days later), but they could not find them. This held up getting the needed help through Mercy's Physicians Medical group who would not authorize ( I will be writing them up as well--negatively) any help until they had the X rays from US Urgent Care. I had to call them again a week later. They finally found them. They were going to take up to 2 weeks to get to my doctors-- again a delay. Luckily, a person there was able to at least send the result of the records to my doctor in order to get authorization for an MRI, a wheelchair, and an orthopedist which I didn't see till two weeks after the injury. One other note, my brother and niece are doctors. They both knew I had done some major damage, but Mercy's Physician's group decided that I was not important enough to require urgency which is what my doctor requested when she saw the injury. I didn't get an MRI till three weeks later. I didn't get a wheel chair till after the orthopedist which was two weeks later after the injury. I think the MRI corroborated the fact that I had done some serious injury to my knee. Though you think my doctor, my brother and niece and her husband--all doctors said it was a bad injury.

"They are quite well organized and all of the patients? records are computerized. When you go in for an appointment all of your records are right there on a screen in front of the doctor." You don't have to shuffle through papers; they know everything about you and can find out right away any information about your medical past. If there is an emergency and you can't get to your primary care physician then they will have you see another doctor, there is always someone available. The only disadvantage, which is probably true of most hospitals, is that if you go to the emergency room there will be a long, long wait. The staff is all competent and friendly. When you see a doctor they always give you the impression that they have all the time in the world to spend with you and they never rush you through the appointment.

Hospitals

A hospital is a healthcare institution that provides treatment through specialized staff and equipment. Patients receive medical, surgical or psychiatric care from physicians, nurses and other staff members.

While cancer patients often receive optimal care where they live, many travel to other cities — and sometimes across the country — for lifesaving treatment.

Whether going to a neighboring city or cross-country, patients and their families traveling for cancer treatment have resources to help in their journey.

Consumers push for transparency amid bewildering array of health care prices set by doctors, hospitals and health insurance companies, a top-down system that often withholds tools consumers need to make smart decisions.

Angie's Answers

?
I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had


?
I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.


?
I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.

Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

I have very good insurance so all I had to pay was a $5 copay for a right colectomy and a week of recovery in the hospital. This was my first major surgery so it was very scary but the surgeon was excellent. I was impressed with how thoroughly she studied my medical record before she even saw me. She explained things very carefully and answered all of my questions before I even asked them. The nursing staff at this hospital is excellent. I saw this from the point of view of a patient and again this summer when my father was at this hospital for two weeks. They were always concerned that any issues of pain were addressed quickly and they were very responsive to my needs. I had no complications from my surgery.
