I have work done by Matty at Dynamic Tattoo. He was very easy to work with and his Japanese style is fantastic. Over an 8 month period I had a set of Japanese pants made and I am very happy with the result. Trevor the owner was great to talk with and the vibe of the studio is laid back with good music and a the typical banter between the team. I highly recommend Dynamic tattoo and be sure to let them know that Dr George sent you.

This pharmacy is nice and close to where I work and I've found the service to be very good. They are well stocked. On one occasion they did not have the medicine I needed on hand but had it in the next day for me. I've found the pharmacist to be friendly and they had a good understanding for offering the best product for my needs. One of the good pharmacies on this end of Bourke St. I am happy to recommend them.

Serge was very helpful with what was ultimately a very difficult fridge to diagnose it's problem. There were more then six visits involved over a three week period however my fridge is now working perfectly. His persistence did pay off despite both our frustrations as to why the fridge was not doing it's job.
