I have been going to Russ for years. He is always honest and doesn't try to sell me anything I don't need just because I am a woman. He tells me if I need something and also says if it can wait. Russ is the BEST!

Honest. Straight forward. Knowledgeable. Everything you could hope for in a mechanic. I appreciate the drop off service. Truck has always been ready when he said it would be. Ask him a question and you'll get a straight answer. Tired of the dealer's "up-selling"? See Russ.

I LOVE this place.
I made an on line appointment to get my oil changed, I got there a bit before the appointed time, he was ready, no BS, no waiting and I was out of there in a flash.
He was courteous, the place was clean and he even had a chair for me to sit on until the oil change was done....now, how can you NOT like a place like that?
Have you ever been to a repair shop where you didn't have to leave your car and come back for it the next day or have to wait so long you felt like you'd spent the night there?? I think we all have had that experience...that is what makes Doctor-D special. I will recommend my friends anytime.

Dr. D started working on my Surburn when he first opened his doors. I am now on my second Saturn. This one has over 280, 000 mi. It is still purrs like a kitten. . He is the only one I take me car to.

I have over 200,000 miles on my 1998 Saturn SL2. Thanks to Doctor-D. I have taken my car to him for well over 10 years now. He is one of the most honest people I know. His prices are reasonable. Whenever I had a problem he always knew what it was right off the bat and was able to fix it right then and there. I don't trust anyone but him for my car maintenance and repair needs.

Doctor-D has been working on my cars for the past 10 years! He's very honest and does the best work in town. He does a great job of communicating with his customers no matter when you try to get in touch with him. I wouldn't take my car to anyone else.

Russ is AMAZING!! I have been going to Doctor-D for 5 years now and I always have trust in him. He is very knowledgeable and does excellent work. He has worked on my BMW 740 and my BMW 330. I never used to know any "good" mechanics that I could trust until I met Russ. He takes the time to explain things to you and tells you up front what you need to know and also offers his suggestions and input. Anyone that is looking for a great mechanic, please see Russ, you will not be disappointed. I drive all the way from Clearwater to see him and have him work on my car. Thanks Russ!!

Russ has been a blessing! As a woman, mechanics in the past have tried to rip me off. I randomly found Doctor D a few years back and I am so thankful I did! He is VERY honest, tells you exactly what is wrong, what he would do if it was his car OR what you can do to get by until you can make the major repair needed. I also appreciate that he doesn't talk down to me like most male mechanics have in the past. He really knows his stuff and takes pride in his work. I will never take my car to another place...Doctor D is all you need! I highly recommend him!

August 27, 2010

EXCELLENT service---HONEST GUY (which is very hard to find in this business), takes pride in his work and does good work, I've recommended him to all my friends and family--used him for over 10 years! Thanks Russ! You are the Best!

August 27, 2010

Working with Doctor D has been wonderfully refreshing. To find someone that is this good at what they do, honest about what needs to be done and getting the work done in a timely manner has been a rare find. Highly recommend.
