This page is specifically for businesses that I have gone to or medical practices or restaurants or any number of places where I have had exceptional service. Many of you may not realize, but I am part of the Yelp Elite Squad (Y.E.S) and have been for the past 7 years. I was honored to be chosen to be a member initially and love continuing year in and year out. I love being able to provide reviews that are positive, negative, or otherwise to give you the full write-up of my experiences.
This page is designed to show you the most positive places I’ve visited and the ones that I highly recommend. Some businesses that will be listed here are actually service providers like HVAC companies or appliance repair, businesses that you might find on Angie’s List. I want to share these with you so you can seek them out for your needs. The initial grouping will be from my regional area, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Baltimore, Maryland, and the suburbs between and around those areas. I felt it was important to truly provide these wonderful businesses and service providers a way to be recognized.

- Dr. Felix & Dr. Maria Chiropractic (Vienna, Virginia) I have been a patient of these two amazing chiropractors since 2011. They have literally fixed every problem they have come across and I highly recommend their practice. I can’t recommend this practice enough as they are amazing at what they do. If you are in need of chiropractic work, or if you are looking for a second opinion before surgery, or any other reason, this is the place for you!
- Lucia’s Italian Restaurant (Herndon & Sterling, Virginia locations) A wonderful, family-owned business with two locations in Northern Virginia. Homemade gelato, and wonderful pastries, delicious pasta, sandwiches, and pizza cooked to perfection for your culinary pleasure. They kept me fed and happy through the quarantine with their curbside pickup. Highly recommend a visit here.
- Clark, Delaney & Nguyen (Reston Family Dental Practice, Reston, Virginia) Top Northern Virginia dental practice! From basic dentistry to major work like crowns, root canals, implants, and other dental necessities, the practice takes excellent care of their patients. A beautiful and well-kept office with super friendly staff and hygienists, help to make this one of the best dental practices in Northern Virginia.
- Northern Virginia Doctors of Optometry (Five Northern Virginia locations) I visit the Reston location and have seen both Dr. Giles and Dr. Snively who are excellent optometrists. Maria is the office manager and makes sure everything works smoothly throughout the office. Their optical assistants are wonderful and have creative solutions for vision concerns.
- Family Immediate Care (Herndon, Virginia) Not all urgent care centers are the same! This urgent care center is excellent with their care. A single practitioner, Dr. Lin, handles all cases from mild to wild! You can choose them to become your primary care physician if you so desire.
- Dog a Do Salon (Herndon, Virginia) Highly recommended top place for getting your furbaby groomed. This outstanding dog salon is very reasonable, very professional with top-notch dog groomers who do such an amazing job. Have been visiting this salon for over 2 years and they do a fine business where appointments are almost always necessary. They work on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 7 am to 4 pm. My dog loves going there and they are always happy to see her and give her some attention (she wants all she can get)! If your dog is in need of a spa day and/or a nice haircut, please check out this wonderful salon. I can’t recommend them enough!!!
- Weber’s Pet Supermarket (Four Northern Virginia locations) Family-owned pet store with a wide variety of top foods, treats, toys, and supplies primarily for dogs and cats but some items for other small animals and birds. I most often visit the Herndon location. The staff is friendly and helpful and they have ordered special items for me which I needed for my dog. They also have a dog self-service wash station at the Herndon store. A fantastic pet store which I highly recommend.
