    Quinlin, Dr. Teresa
    She is awesome. She uses holistic health care message- she doesn't necessarily go to the hard drugs immediately. She prescribes herbal that are effective in most instances. She does acupuncture and so I get my acupuncture treatments there.

    Byers, Douglas P
    I have been seeing him on and off for 10-12 years. He is thorough and very personable. I chose him because of his reputation of being thorough. His staff is friendly. My privacy is respected there. Everything is private. He is more holistically minded than some. He doesn’t take insurance. He can give a receipt that I can turn in to my insurance. I go to him because of his skills and not for the insurance.

    A Touch Above Massage Therapy
    A very calming home-based office, which we enjoyed. Location and parking were easy and convenient. Even though we were each seeking treatment for different reasons, we all experienced relief as a result of the treatments. Very satisfied.

    I had been going on and off for years and years. I had a bad shoulder. His treatment helps. I haven't been there for a while because I had some problems with their billing office. Their availability is pretty good. They stopped accepting my insurance and they didn't tell me. All at once within a week, I got a bill from my insurance company and they said they don't pay this. By that time, I owed them $600. I was very upset. They did help me out. I called them and I was pregnant at that time, I couldn't go.

    The Goddard School
    My daughter began at this Goddard School when she was 3 months old. After a little over a year and half ,we recently made the decision to take her to another school. The only reason we stayed as long as we did was due to the wonderful teachers that she had. We couldn?t have had a better infant care experience. The teachers were loving, supportive, cuddly, etc. All the things you would want for your child. We were blessed to have great teachers throughout our entire time there. However, the owner is unprofessional and has managed to run-off many of the teachers and most of the families. Before I go on, I must stress that if you are considering hiring one of the teachers from this Goddard School, you should give that person serious consideration. I would still call upon most any of them to baby-sit for my daughter, and if a nanny were in our future, I could think of several teachers who would be ideal candidates. My fear in submitting this review is that the dedicated teachers will take a hit when none of this is really their fault. When I first toured the school, I didn't realize the impact the owner would have upon the daily operations of the school. (By way of background, most daycares that I have visited are corporate owned and have a director and one or two assistant directors on staff. The Goddard franchise operates under a model whereby the owner is considered to be an on-site operator. In theory, the owners serve as a director. Most Goddard Schools have a director and an assistant director that work with the owner.) At this Goddard School, the owner, Kevin, takes up the space of a director but doesn?t do anything. He also only ever has one director on staff. (By stating that he doesn?t do anything, I mean it. The center can be short-staffed, rooms overcrowded and, if he's there, he is sitting in his office texting on his cell phone. More often than not, he just isn't there. Since we first toured the school (just over a year and a half ago) the school has gone through 4 directors. With the exception of the last director (who lasted just over one month), most of the directors seemed to be nice, but inexperienced and ill-prepared for the task. To make matters worse, Kevin doesn?t give them any authority or provide them with support. For example, the center is protected through an electronic key-card and thumbprint system. From time to time the electronic system goes haywire and the doors don?t unlock. I?ve been told by multiple past directors that such malfunctions require a simple ?reset? but that Kevin doesn?t leave them the key to rest the system. When the last director quit, Kevin didn?t even bother to come into the center. Accordingly, the daycare was without an owner or director on site and as of this report the center is still without a director. New parents to the school who don?t yet have keycards can?t get into the building and since there is no director or owner around, they have to wait for another parent to come along to get in. (The classrooms are understaffed so the teachers can?t leave the rooms to monitor the doors.) This summer the phone system was down for four weeks. Kevin didn?t bother to notify parents of this safety issue. I only happened to find out when I called one day to let them know that my daughter was sick with a cold and staying home. Kevin never had a reasonable explanation for the phone problem. While the phones were out, the teachers were forced to use their own private cell phones to call parents if there were problems. (Most were very worried about the number of cell phone ?minutes? they were eating up with these calls. I?m told that they weren?t reimbursed for the expense. This may sound trivial to some professionals, but this was no little expense to these teachers who don?t get paid much as it is.) The landline phones never were fixed. Instead, four weeks into it the problem, he finally bought cell phones for each of the rooms. After just one month of this fix, the cell phones were disconnected. (They happen to be up and running again as of the date of this report, but given what I?ve seen, I wouldn?t be surprised if it happens again.) In the first 10 months that my daughter was at the school, she was transitions through three different classrooms. (Many centers keep kids in one room until they turn one. By the time my daughter turned one she was in her third classroom and had several new teachers come and go in each of her rooms.) The most recent classroom was also overcrowded. Because the families of older kids kept leaving, there was always space in the classes ahead of my daughter. Kevin?s model seemed to be to get as many infants in the door as possible, but he didn?t really seem to care if any of the kids stayed through kindergarten. Accordingly, there was always a big push to ?promote? little kids into the next room in order to make room for the new babies coming in. (If you are considering this school for your infant, take a long hard look at all of the empty 2 ? 5 year old rooms. This isn?t normal.) Kevin admitted to me that overcrowded classrooms was the result of cost cutting. My daughter?s room was well over Goddard ratio for a while and it got pretty chaotic. Only after a several conversations, a long meeting, lots of begging (and other parents yanking kids out of the daycare) did he get the ratio back down. (Surprisingly, when we called Goddard Corporate to raise this concern, we were informed that the Goddard student/teacher ratios are just ?guidelines? and were told that he could default to state minimums at any time. This certainly isn?t what they advertise, it isn?t what Kevin promised, and it isn?t what we were paying for.) The overcrowded classroom resulted in chaos, stressed teachers, and unhappy kids. The number of ?biting? incidents seemed to rise dramatically during this time. I also learned during this time that he doesn?t have a biting policy in place (i.e., no consistency in reporting to parents when your child is bitten, no consistency in how the handle the bitters, no policy such as you bite 6 times in a week and your out for a day, nothing). The overcrowding resulted in less time for art or other enrichment activities. The kids were just cranked through the projects to get it done. They weren?t given the time to actually enjoy the texture of the paint, etc. (When we shared our concerns with Corporate, they said that at her age it was really just about custodial care. Again, not what they advertise. If I wanted just custodial care, I would hire a teenager on summer break and let her watch TV all day.) I should note, that I never raised any concerns to the corporate level until I found that Kevin was ignoring the concerns I raised to him and, in some instances, lying to me. Between my friend with children and the center and I, we?ve caught him in several blatant lies. During the time my daughter has been at Goddard, I think she?s played outside a total of 4 times. I raised this concern with Kevin and learned that they don?t have any plan in place to get kids under 18 months outside. I heard some c*** excuse like, they have to use strollers to transport the kids outside because not all of the kids under 18 months can walk, and that there is an elevator and five doors between the classroom and the playground and so that if the teachers felt like trying to maneuver the stroller through all of those doors that he didn?t care if they took the kids outside. I?ve since learned that none of the kids are currently allowed to go outside because the state licensing inspector found that the fence around the playground is not sufficient to keep kids from escaping. I don?t know what the plans are to fix this problem. The best asset the school has is the teachers and Kevin just treats them like dirt. He tried to cut janitorial staff and have the teachers do the heavy duty cleaning. I don?t think he fully cut the cleaning staff; however, it is apparent that the teachers are required to do more of the work and the center isn?t as clean as it used to be. One evening my husband picked up my daughter and found her sitting alone at a table without a toy, book, or anything else to play with while the floater teacher covering her room was cleaning the room. While I understand that they need to do some clean up, it should be heavy duty and it shouldn?t come at the expense of my daughter?s care. Kevin says sexist comments to teachers, parents and prospective parents. On multiple occasions, he?s made inappropriate comments about the menstrual cycles of his female staff. I?ve seen him drive off many parents and staff. Anytime you bring to his attention a concern, he blames the problem on someone else and doesn?t seem to appreciate that the buck sops with him. It is always, always, always someone else?s fault. I?ve also heard confidentially from some of the teachers some very troubling stories regarding their compensation and benefits. Since none of this information is first-hand, I will not go into detail; however, the issues are serious enough and have been growing that I became increasingly concerned that I would show up one morning to find the place all locked-up. (The 4 week phone outage and disconnected cell phones certainly didn't help alieviate these concerns.) Of the 8 babies that my daughter started with, only one remains. Everyone else has gone and none of them have left because the parents lost their jobs. (This is a common myth that I?ve heard is floating around.) The parents in our classroom have a very good line of communication developed and I can attest to the fact that they have gone to other care providers. I also have friends with children in other age-groups. They have all experienced similar problems. Two different co-workers had children of two different ages from my own daughter and both reported that their kids classrooms were not being properly stocked with supplies and that Kevin took away all of the books in their classrooms because the books were damaged. I?m the last of my friends to leave and I should have done it along time ago. I was just so reluctant to move her from the teachers she loved and the friend she had made. Finally, the point came where most of the kids and teachers left on their own. The last director (who I thought had a shot at making a difference) has packed up and left and now so have we. I feel so stupid for staying for so long. If you are still inclined to look at this school, check out the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services website which has copies of past inspection reports. The center always fails in several categories, several of the violations are considered serious, and you?ll see that he rarely responds to the reports within in the required time-period, if at all. Do yourself a favor and just don?t bother looking here.

    I was supposed to have a one hour full body massage. I was not called in for the massage until 4:20 which was 20 minutes after my appointment time. The masseuse apologized for being late and said her last client arrived late. After I undressed it was at least five minutes before the masseuse returned. She gave me a very good massage, however, she finished at 4:55. I thought maybe she would discount the bill, but she charged me the entire $65. When I questioned it at the front desk they asked her to come up. When I told her that I did not get my full hour she said, "Well I don't know about that, I just know I gave a great massage". When I insisted on a prorated bill I was still over-charged at $61.65.

    I have had several massages here and they are excellent! You get a full hour and the charge is only $50. I included a $10 tip above. The place is very peaceful with a waterfall as a focal point. Everyone has always been very friendly.

    fair to good - wish we would have been given more info BEFORE the surgery. Had some surprises afterwards. Also the billing dept kept trying to bill us. The insurance company paid them.
