Great place, friendly staff and pretty clean. However the showers in the women’s bathroom almost never run hot and the place seemingly doesn’t use AC even in the summer.. I’m a bit tired of sticking to machines. Will come back overall.
I enjoy(ed) it here haven’t been cause of the covid deal but now there is a online set-up happening where attendance is limited. Anyway, my rating is based on the thousands of times I have been. Lovely basketball gym, swimming pool and running track, lots of fun! Very clean work out equipment too.
Went to pick up a prescription that had been phoned in by the hospital earlier in the day. Was informed that they were out of the prescription and I could go to the nearest Walgreens that had it in stock which was 30 minutes away. The pharmacy failed to notify the doctor ordering the prescription or me that it was out of stock so other arrangements could have been made. I will no longer use Walgreens.
I just moved to Erie. I went inside to the Pharmacy to transfer my prescriptions. I was first greeted quite rudely by the tech because I didn’t know what window to stand at. She rudely told me which one then I waited for awhile while 7 to 10 employees went about their business. They seemed to have no desire to help me, like me standing there was an inconvenience to them. I was the only customer and there was one employee working the drive-thru. After about 5 to 10 minutes waiting, I left. I wil be back. My last Walgreens was fantastic they never had more than 3 maybe four people working. However, they always greeted me kindly and help me like my business and needs mattered. After 12 plus years with Walgreens where I spent thousands of dollars a year, I now will go to a different company all together.
Many of the teachers were nice. Help was given where help was needed. Bullying was rare at most. But, none of that changes the fact that it was a compulsory school. I truly and honestly stand by the words that I hated it. If you want know why I and many others hate compulsory schooling, I highly recommend reading the work of Peter Gray. Specifically the book, “Free to Learn”.
Very impressed with the 6th grade band concert and 8th grade jazz band concert at the High School, Feb. 23. All the band directors involved are to be commended for their ability to get the young people to do their very best. The students are to be commended for all their hard work learning to play together and make very good music. Keep up the fine sounds, kids!
My wife and I sent our son here for pre school with Mrs. Shuttleworth. We did so much research, and class shadowing across all of Erie, and surrounding towns and cities. We are those parents who care way too much about the details of safety, school standards, quality of teachers, food programs ECT….. And we can tell you that Erie Elementary and the quality of their pre school is fantastic, don’t let the other poor reviews fool you. This is a fantastic school and Mrs Shuttleworth is amazing.
Months ago, I called to make an appointment. They said the soonest they could get me in was 5 weeks out. Then said they would email me an appointment reminder and paperwork. Nothing came. I called and left a message. Nobody called me back. I assumed appointment was lost. And then about 2 months later, I received a “no show” bill for $40.
I have been attending Buffalo Ridge for the past 6+ years. While it is near impossible to get an appointment with Dr. Cruse, especially for more urgent issues, Denise Kawecki, NP is the BEST primary care provider. Delightful, SO knowledgable and more importantly takes all the time necessary. Best experience I have ever had with all other Doc’s both here and while living in several other States.
I have been a Buffalo Ridge patient for many years now. Until very recently, I would have rated them with 5 stars for their excellence throughout the team, including doctors, PA’s, and office staff.
However, recently I’ve had a terrible customer experience with them with respect to getting a new CPAP machine to maintain the treatment of my sleep Apnea, which was first diagnosed back in 2004 or 2005.
Up until about three months ago, I was using the original machine that was prescribed for me and mostly paid for by my insurance company with no problems. However, the machine finally died and when I called the CPAP supplier to either fix or get a new machine, they told me that my insurance (same company that paid for the first one) would pay for a new machine every 5 years, but they needed a copy of my original diagnosis record in order to process my order.
So…I reached out to Buffalo Ridge to see if they had this diagnosis record from my sleep center study, which was done at the former Mapleton Center division of Boulder Community Hospital in 2004 or 2005. I was told by Buffalo Ridge staff that they did not have my records this far back and that, “nobody keeps medical records this old.”
Completely relying on the Buffalo Ridge staff’s definitive statement that my diagnosis record no longer exist, I went back to the my CPAP supplier and asked them what to do to get a new machine. They reached out to my insurance company, who told them that I they couldn’t do ANYTHING for me without that original diagnosis.
Not about to give up, I reached out to my benefits coordinator at my company who supplies my health insurance and after a rather complex sequence of events, I was told that I would need to get paperwork from my primary care physician at Buffalo Ridge indicating my symptoms, etc.
For literally two months now, I have been going back and forth between Buffalo Ridge, the CPAP supplier, the insurance company, and a local hospital that has a sleep study center. At one point, I had a home sleep study authorized, but I was not able to sleep enough during that night without a CPAP to gather enough valid data for the assessment to be useful and the insurance company simply refused to authorize a new sleep study with a CPAP at the hospital sleep center.
This saga continues to drag on to this day and the only thing that has really kept me from a complete health disaster with my sleep apnea is the pure luck I had to find a used CPAP machine on Craigslist for $75, which I am using every night.
Currently, I am stuck in bureaucratic purgatory between Buffalo Ridge, the CPAP supplier, the hospital with the sleep center, and my insurance company. It’s almost impossible to get ALL of them talking together and staying on the same sheet of music and I have heard numerous different stories from all of them.
Completely frustrated, I tried thinking out of the box. I wondered aloud to myself, “did Buffalo Ridge really tell me correctly that my original sleep apnea diagnosis record from the Mapleton Center division of Boulder Community Hospital from back in 2004 – 2006 has been deleted?”
While it’s true that Mapleton Center is gone, Boulder Community Hospital and Buffalo Ridge are now ironically both part of a bigger company called BCH. So it didn’t seem logical to me that some medical records pack rat didn’t keep my records from 13 or 14 years ago, even if it is on micro fiche.
Thus, last Thursday I called the records department of Boulder Community Hospital. The records clerk told me that they have electronic records that go back to about 2007 or 2008 and paper records that go back to the mid-1990s! And better yet, all I had to do is fill out a one-page form to get a copy of them, which they could mail to me or I could pick up when they were ready. Still better, it would only take them a few days to render the records for me from the time they received my request!
So…Buffalo Ridge is responsible for this hot mess because they didn’t even know that the hospital division of BCH still has my original records!
I went to Citybank Erie to get some dollar bills. The teller was so rude. I’m not even upset that she could not help me out but the rudeness was unbelievable. I went to Great Western and they were so nice. I’m moving all my banking to them because of their kindness.
Closed my account with no notice or call. Left 3 voicemails for them, no return call. Call corporate they transfer to the branch where no one answers. They still have my money that I cannot access because they closed my account. This is hands down the worst bank and customer service I have ever seen, they should be embarrassed.
Worst bank ever! They continue to charge me service fees on an account where no service fees are supposed to be charged!! My personal banker, April Zuniga, quit due to their incompetence, and when I tried to rectify the problem with customer service, they told me that they couldn’t verify my identity EVEN THOUGH THEY SEND ME STATEMENTS, I GAVE THEM MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER AND MY MONEY IS IN THER F-ING BANK!!! DO NOT BANK HERE.
Have been stood up twice by this grooming shop in the same month. We scheduled to bring our dog in for a grooming. Took time from work to drop our dog off and there was no one at their shop. Made several calls and left a message with no returned call. Tried again days later to find one of the groomers had an emergency and that’s why the shop was closed. Made our second appointment for today and again took time from work to drop our dog off and no one was at the shop. No call, nothing. We’ll never take our dog here again. They have the worst customer service!
Marni was incredibly helpful with quoting my auto insurance. It was refreshing that she took the time to explain and walk me through my existing auto insurance documents. I could tell that she truly cares about helping clients. I strongly recommend her to everyone interested in getting an insurance quote.
Marni Morgan rocks!! Unmatched service. She is quick to respond, does research to get you thee best price!! Marni has your best interest at heart at all times!! Patience of a Saint, relatable and overall awesomeness!
Don’t go anywhere else or use anyone else but Marni!
Marni is able to be at once forthright, professional, and compassionate. She takes the time and energy to show genuine care and empathy and then helps to guide you through the processes with insurance. She is definitely one of the more trustworthy names in the business.
I’ve been a customer of Dino’s for about six years now. He is so helpful and always gets back to me right away! He remembers who I am whenever it’s been a long time since we’ve spoken last, and always is super positive. I highly recommend him along with Allstate.
I signed up with Dino after having my other insurance for 7 years and he was able to blow them out of the water with price and customer service, for the exact same coverage. Hands down the best insurance agent I’ve had. Wish I switched sooner.
