"The phone system hardly ever works, so it is very hard to get in touch with anyone to make an appointment. This building houses several doctors of different specialties, but only two" people are the administrative assistants answering the phone and taking people in. I have left messages for nurses to call me back, and never get a call back. I think the fact the there has been at least 6 different nurses assisting one doctor in the past year is a sign of trouble. If there is always a different nurse, they don't remember your children or what they need. The pediatrician is adequate. He doesn't give thorough responses and just gives one option for treatment, which unfortunately works only half the time.

"Saw 1st doctor. He was very knowledgeable and had a lot of experience. All my followup exams were done by another doctor as the original one was never again available. The 2nd doctor" I had was impatient and not too eager to figure out the right prescription for me. After several times in,I finally decided to go with the last prescription she gave me even though it still did not correct my vision very well. I will go in for another exam using a different doctor next time.

"I was able to get a same day appointment, that was a plus. The doctor and staff was very understanding and patient. They helped a lot and made me feel better.

Local Articles in Gorham


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!

Hospital Care reviews in Gorham


Everything was clean. The staff was very attentive, organized and professional. They did an excellent job. I would recommend this hospital to other people.
- Theresa W.

I was a few minutes late (about 10 minutes) to the appointment due to traffic. When I
arrived I was informed that the office had a seven minute "late policy"
and that I would have to reschedule. That policy had never been
mentioned before, but now they were going to enforce it. So I decided I
would find a more accommodating dentist.

- Daniel T.

It was the closest hospital and we went there for emergencies. It was wonderful they scheduled me in and the next thing I knew I was in the hospital and then I had the surgery and next thing I went back home. It was over so fast. They are very clean and professional and they were polite.
- Amanda S.

Everything was nice and it's the closest hospital to where I am. As far as my experience they are the best. The environment is very nice, they are clean and very professional. They are pretty fast, they are very friendly and make you feel relaxed.
- Amanda S.

They had to ambulate her leg due to low blood flow. When they did so they did not do it high enough and there was still issues. She was considered a high risk patient so they wouldn't do anything more for her. They left her to die. I had to constantly ask them for pain medication for my mother. A few times when I called in I would get nurses that would tell me that they cannot help because their shift has ended. They were constantly asking for referrals so they could milk us out of more money. This is a Doctors owned hospital. They told me that she would not be able to heal right after they amputated her.
- Dorinda N.

It was a very good stay and I got good care. However, I did not see the doctor who did the surgery. I saw his associate over the weekend because the surgery was on Friday, so I didn’t see him until my follow-up appointment, which was a month later. I guess I wish I would’ve seen him a little bit more right away.
- John M.

Everything was really good, the blood cancer center there is really good, they are specialists in what they do. And also they get alot of the new research trials so am actually on a pretty big clinical trial. The OHC is really good and the doctors there are really good. The oncology nurses that take care of me are nice. They are very friendly. The doctors are all very understanding and really good with communication.
