Worked with my schedule. Understood what was important to me. Called me before doing any extra work they recommend. I enjoy having a long term relationship with Apex servicing my Volvo.
Peter and Ken took great care to listen and help diagnose my car's malfunction. They went the extra mile to try and duplicate what was a sudden and occasional nuisance without jumping to conclusions. Absolutely awesome and incredibly trustworthy efforts that I have NEVER experienced elsewhere. Thank you! Amy in Ballard
I've had a good experience so far working with Apex. They have provided me estimates for work where they aren't hiding expenses, but they don't pressure me into doing anything I'm not ready to do. They were available recently when I had an emergency as well.
Had a very tricky problem with my old Audi A4 that nobody else could figure out. Apex took the time to ask lots of questions and took the car for a couple drives and fixed the problem quickly and inexpensively. Ill keep coming back and will recommend them to friends.
I was helped by Pete, who graciously scheduled an appointment a week prior, responded with estimates within the day and was willing to help me prioritize the work in order to suit my finances. i'll be back.
Dr. Max and his staff put me at ease right away on my first visit to the office. I appreciated the doctor's open, straightforward, intelligent and somewhat humble communication style--he seems sensitive to patient concerns and able to provide customized care. I was made very comfortable with music selections and dark glasses i the dentist's chair. The hygenist and dentist were both gentle and efficient in their work and the receptionist helpful and efficient in hers. Great experience!
kate is so amazing at what she does - she really is knowledgeable and knows how to treat and recommend skin care. i feel so fortunate to have her as an aesthetician! Skinlogic should hold on to her at all costs.
