After having my second child, I was very self conscious about all of the stretch marks and scars that I've incurred since my first child. I am very leery of surgery or anything involving putting me to sleep and scalpels. But, I was sure that I was through with having children, I decided to get a tummy tuck. Dr. Galpin and his staff are the most knowledeable and helpful that I know of. They answered every question that I asked with great detail and cared about how I was feeling emotionally. They made me feel comfortable and assured me the results would be great. They also told me all of the risks that came with surgery. I will never be the same again and am extremely happy with my results.
I have had a lot of experience with taxi's in the past and I have tried 3 other companies before. La Bella is the best that I've seen. They have recently gotten newer vehicles and all are equipped with air conditioning, which is a must in Hawaii. The knowledgable drivers know where they need to take you in the shortest amount of time possible. Especially if you're in a hurry, they know all of the back roads to avoid the most traffic. Their fees are the same as all taxicabs, but the service is much greater.
My son is in the first grade at Pukalani Elementary School and he loves class field trips. They take a lot of field trips to the MACC and I think it's a great experience for the kids. They not only get to go to plays, but the also have creative movement and learn more about the arts. I don't remember having this kind of opportunity when I was younger and am grateful that my child can. These field trips are not only fun and exciting for the kids, but also very educational.
They do the best body working on the island. The whole front hood and bumper of my sister's car was completely smashed in. There was no frame damage, but the car looked horrible. I thought it was totaled, seeing that it was a little Geo Metro. Within one week, we got the car back and it looked better than it did before the crash. I was so shocked. The paint matched exactly and the bumper and hood actually looks better than the rest of the car. Looks like new. The staff was extremely helpful and gave us excellent service. As with any body work, it was a little expensive, but not more expensive than anywhere else. It was definitely worth the money.
My sister was tired of having to have her visor down every time she drove down the hill to work every morning. She has sensitive skin, too, so the sun would make her arms itchy if it was on her the whole time she was driving. So, she decided to get her windows tinted and she is so happy she did. It only took about 2 days for her to get her car back and it was pretty affordable. The staff was friendly and professional. They took great care of her car and she was really happy with the work they did on the windows.
This place is one of the only places on Maui to get rare car parts that you normally could not get from any other auto parts store. Me and my husband have been shopping here for years and thought it was a good place to get our rare car parts from. Until last month, when I went to get a part for my vintage car, they said that they didn't have any more in stock. So I called another reputable parts store to order from them and they asked me if I had already called this store. I said yes and they said that it was odd that they told me that they didn't have any because they had 3 in stock when he called. I'm not sure if the staff was too lazy to look for the part for me or that they just didn't want to sell it to me. I thought that this was very unprofessional and ever since that day, I do not give them my business anymore. I filed a complaint with the owner and he apologized for their actions, but I will not do business here again.
My husband does all of my car maintenance, so when my car got hit in the parking lot, he decided to repaint the whole car. This was great because I wanted to change my car and now I can personalize it with my own color. H&S staff are extremely helpful and knowledgable. They helped my customize a color of my own and now no one has the same color car as I do. They gave my husband a few tips on how to spray the car and what paint would last the longest, especially in the hot Maui sun and the salt air. I love my car now and thank the staff for all of their help. They have the highest quality paint on the island and although they're a little expensive, it's well worth it.
I remember when I was 6 years old, my mom took me on this train for my birthday. I absolutely love it and so did my 6 year-old. There are different times for these tours and the night ride is absolutely beautiful. You see all of the lights of the town and it's nice and cool. Seeing that Lahaina is probably the hottest part of Maui, I prefer to go at night opposed to during the day. But, the day ride is also great, especially for the children. They get to see all the old landscapes and get to tell you what they see and what to look at. They also have Kama'aina rates if you are a Hawaii resident. Food is also served for a fee.
My 6 year-old absolutely loves this aquarium. Since he was 6 months old we have gone there at least 15 times. I regret to not purchasing the year pass. His favorite attraction is probably the shark area. He loves sharks or anything with sharp teeth. My favorite attraction is the "touch pool" where you can see and feel sea urchins and other sea animals in their own environment. All of the attractions are not only fun, but they're also very educational. Next to each display are fun facts and games to learn about each attraction. This is a fun place to go for a family day that's both exciting and educational. Kama'aina rates apply if you are a hawaii resident which helps out a lot. There is also a concession stand and restaurant. The gift shop is a lot of fun, also.
Dr. Talbot has been my 6 year old's pediatrician since he was 3 months old. My son absolutely loves him and feels as comfortable as a child could possibly feel going to the dr.'s office. He really cares about how the child is feeling and is so patient. When he was going through his " separation anxiety" episodes, Dr. Talbot took the time to make him feel more comfortable before examining him. I feel confident in him so much that when I gave birth to my second son, which is 15 months old now, that I chose Dr. Talbot as his pediatrician as well and now both my children have the same doctor. He not only is a pediatrician, but he also does internal medicine as well, so adults are welcome to his care also.
