Michael Di Gesu's take on MOONLESS: Check out this awesome intro!
Sixteen-year-old Alexia pins the last banana curl in place.  Why am I so plain and homely? I’ll never marry looking like this. She presses the folds of her gown, glancing one last time in the ornate, gilded mirror. ...

Introduction
Crystal Collier, author of MOONLESS, is a former composer/writer for Black Diamond Productions. She can be found practicing her brother-induced ninja skills while teaching children or madly typing about fantastic and impossible creatures. She has lived from coast to coast and now calls Florida home with her creative husband, three littles, and “friend” (a.k.a. the zombie locked in her closet). Secretly, she dreams of world domination and a bottomless supply of cheese.

Doctor Schwartz seemed to be very knowledgeable and very personable. My experience on an initial consultation was excellent, except that he forgot to send home samples with me. My test results concluded that we should start into Immunotherapy, or allergy shots. I sent in the consent form to begin, and was told I'd be contacted within two weeks. After two and a half weeks I finally called them. I was told I'd need twice as many shots/twice the cost the doctor had told me, and when I explained what the physician said, was told the doctor would be consulted and I would receive a call back. A week later I called back. They had called, but not left a message. Now that that was all straightened out, I discovered that as a self-pay patient I had been over-charged for the initial visit. The staff member promised to take care of that, and said my shots should be ready the following Monday and that I would receive a call. (It was a Friday.) I waited until Tuesday and finally called. Change of story. Their people prepared shots only on Thursday and Fridays, but they put a note on my order to make it a top priority so I could come in Thursday afternoon. Again, I waited for the call. No call. Finally I called on Friday. Apparently they closed at noon. My patience is wearing thin with this clinic. We're two weeks past when treatment should have started and I'm still uncertain any progress has been made. At this point I'm considering taking my self-pay business elsewhere. Surely there are people who value customer service?

Our first experience in the office was to remove stitches from my son's chin. This should not have been a difficult and traumatic/painful process. My father was a doctor and I watched/experienced many instances of stitch removal. I seriously had the impression the doctor had never done it before, and my brave 4 yr old had a hard time sitting through the tugging and twisting. (Honestly, there was tugging and twisting. I could have done a better job at home with scissors.) When we came back for physicals, I had filled out paperwork and requested our transfer of immunization records, however, the staff had somehow overlooked or LOST the request form. I filled out another one, disgusted and resolved not to return if possible. Two years later I contacted them to retrieve my children's records. This turned into a week long process of calling and talking to one person after another only to get transferred to another office or person and promised a return call that never came. In the end I finally tracked down the kids records to find my second request for immunization records was never completed. Incompetent staff, incompetent doctor, long office wait, and overall irritation.

I first became alarmed when I looked at his schedule book and noticed the sporadic appointments. Still further I worried when he didn't tell me--like every other dentist in the world that I really needed to floss. But hey, I appreciated that my teeth didn't hurt after the cleaning (very sensitive) and that the office felt comfortable--unlike some dentists I've seen in the NY area. The clincher however is when he completed the first filling. It still hurts--every time I bite down and although I plan to go back and have him fix the problem, you only get one set of teeth. Why trust them to incompetence--or better yet, a lack of care? Not only this through our office discussions he defended poor dentistry, an instant red flag. He's a nice guy, but I think he's more preoccupied with his image than his work.
