Excellent first visit!
12/16/2014
Jonathan B says: Staff was incredibly knowledgeable and patient! I had not had experience with other forms of cannabis than smoking, and they were able to explain what they thought would be most helpful given my symptoms. Juanita's tincture has been helpful at night. I am looking forward to more extracts in the new year.
First Visit

Josh P says: If only all the businesses I worked with were as professional and interested in their customers as you I would be a happy camper. The service and education was first class. Even better, the suggestions have worked. Thanks for your great help.
First-time client
12/08/2014
Jill C says: Friday was my first visit to CVD and had no idea what to expect. The two women that I met were very nice, accommodating and had great personalities. They both seemed very well informed about the different products, and I was very impressed by the professionalism and confidentiality. The questionnaire that was required prior to my first appointment had some unusual (amusing?) questions, though, specifically regarding paranoia (would that EVER be desirable?) and so on. Cost-wise? It seems pricey to me, but I don't know how it compares to something that I could buy, well, somewhere else.
Anybody working!

daniel m says: Great news, have appointment Tuesday... Briget sent me links to help with applications I can make ahead of time.. Links brought me to the home page!.. Called and another woman got back the next day. Late in day and she will send me all the links 1st thing tomorrow morning... It's now tomorrow night.. What happen to all the negative reviews that were on here 2 months ago! I know because I wrote one... Making copy of this and going to see how it works out the next few days.. If not happy, I'll find every e-mail in Vermont Gov.. Lets see where that goes.. Disabled Vet,,,
positive changes

ellie g says: Always a pleasure to work with the staff. They are attentive and will always explain their products thoroughly. Since using medical cannabis, I no longer use pain meds or antidepressants, or sleep pills. Looking forward to using more edibles and tinctures instead of smoking to treat my symptoms. Over all, a great experience.
My First Time
11/18/2014
Raymond C says:  I went for my first visit and they are very professional, helpful and respectful. I was very impressed overall. I feel I was looking for the oil (RS oil), and I was told that some forms of oil was going to be available maybe with-two two or three months. I looking forward to when they get the oils. The products currently available are top notch and a little to costly. Thank You and I'll be back;
Very helpful a little pricy
11/14/2014
Shawn H says: The product is great although it is definitely a lot cheaper to buy a grow system and cultivate at home. We need to push on our local government to legalize. That will drive the prices down!
Thank you!!!
11/12/2014
Nina M says: I went to my 1st appointment and was really nervous. I was so happy to know it is a private appointment and they were so kind and helpful...because I'm a newbie, they suggested a trial pack 7 different strains, some day and night..great advice..thanks so much for your help and kindness

Dennis M says: My first visit/consultation yesterday was great. Staff made me feel instantly relaxed and welcome. My medical treatment team is moving very conservatively with pain management. Staff helped me find just the right product based on my needs. Last night was the first time I have been without pain for months. Thank you.

Jim W says: I was extremely nervous, and their debit card line was down and I was in no shape to walk to an ATM so the counselor volunteered to go for me. These counselors were very helpful with my questions while maintaining a professional demeanor at all times. I look forward to my next visit...

8th visit to CVD
10/07/2014
Tracy T says: My lower pricing came through but I still find it pretty expensive. This time there were two new staff members who were very helpful and knowledgeable. I'm also looking forward to the delivery to come to fruition and maybe insurance will cover medical marijuana soon too! The quality is always excellent & I have no complaints there at all. I'll be back!

Bob J says: The product has been consistent with my expectations based on recommendations from the staff. In the beginning, there was a little bit of a trial and error period As time has evolved, the products have improved. Reading some of the other reviews, I might suggest using the staff's vast product knowledge in order to obtain your desired effect.
Love you folks!
7/31/2014
Laurie F says: I am always thrilled to visit the dispensary. Each staff person I have met has been professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. Now that I have a pretty good idea of which products work the best for me, I am thrilled with the quality and the results. I have totally released my dependence on narcotic pain relievers and feel so much better than I have in years! Thank you!
Decent
7/26/2014
Andy S says: Great product, great staff. I've tried at least 90% of all strains there with no complaints. Only improvements I would suggest are lower prices and earlier hours of operation. Also, why am I forced to buy a more expensive "grade" of product just because I have a decent job? Maybe the discounts should be based on what our monthly expenses are instead of what the paycheck says.

product/new pricing ??????????????????
7/20/2014
pete b says:  Well lets see, from what I understand that due to customer response, and that being it was felt that If buying the(b), grade the guality wasnt as good, well now we are paying a lot more for that same line of product, really people you actually think the product you, ve been getting, or were, just would stop, thats right now your paying more fore it, and loosing all round cost wise, pricing sure isnt getting better with time, man your paying , such a high price for the other even with a discount its very costly. But so much for its not broke dont fix it. It sure would be nice to if there was a way to have product ordered so you can have the chance to get new products, also hoping when the oil makes it around the pricing is atleast set so you can buy weight, not like the hash and have to pay full price, this is really becoming muchharder to get what we need with these prices, sending it back to the street. I would think that atleast from what I have been reading from peoples comments, the biggest being how mostly people are saying how ghey have either taking less of there pain meds., or stopped completely, and we are talking some very heavyduaety meds., this says lots and lots to me anyways, and how we need to help these people to be able to continue to get acses to it as easy as possible, the cost from the savings from ods, hospitals doctors etc., etc., and those much worse meds are free to us so its jut time before we just cnnt affor thee prices, really your customers(patients)are not exactly worki g etc., etc., thus how can we pay with ssd, ssi incomes really think about it. We someone to start appling just a little simple common sence.Help us this has just made it harder, so the future is goingto be what??

ben m says: I'm new to the world of "420" and didn't know what to expect from the staff before my first appointment. I was so surprised at their level of knowledge, friendliness, and desire to educate. Great experience!
First time visit
7/17/2014
Lauren S says: Knowledgeable staff, very pleasant and helpful. I noticed on a post from June that someone was able to get small samples of several strains to road test. That would be helpful. Not sure if that is still done, but it would be great to be able to test one before buying it. Otherwise a great experience. My only issue is with the paperwork. Too much paperwork to fill out in the short time you are there. A suggestion might be send people some paperwork to fill out prior to making there visit. Maybe when they are approved sending the paperwork ahead of time like the Dr. offices do. Thanks, Lauren
Excellent staff! :-)

Clones and seeds

Jay W says: Sickly ratty clones and seeds that don't germinate then they don't return emails about complaints. You guys need to come a long way to help us cultivators! Very disappointed!!
Everytime I Use CVD ...
6/26/2014
Bonnie W says: The staff has been so patient & helpful. I have a memory problem & they are always patient when I continually ask them the same question over and over. Tho the price is a bit higher than the street prices-the fact that it's tested (which I'm sure is pricey) for not just potency but mold, mites etc. I don't know about anyone else but I've seen both & worse & don't want to be ingesting that stuff in any manner. Plus they are secure and have staffing that is always helpful. So they most likely make diddly-squat on their products. Thanks to all of you who work there & have helped me-cut pain meds in more than half & will keep working on it, I've gained some weight also! Yeeeeeeha! Thanks All
First Time
6/22/2014
Peter M says: Very helpful and professional staff. Sometimes funny questionnaire mindset. Is Paranoia desireable or not-desireable? Important or not important? I didn't realize that CVD has to grow everything they sell! While I'm not sure, from the standpoint of variety and efficiency, that it is a good rule, it is impressive. There should be more discussion of horticultural aspects and pride of control (photos would be nice). I got a bunch of one gram "samples" (not on the price list) to try out and guide my next purchase. Very helpful. Thanks, Peter M.
friendly staff
6/17/2014
matt s says: It has been awhile sence I visited cvd so I thought id give them another shot.. the new faces were friendly and helpfull, I cant help but feel a little rushed, also a bar stool near the counter would be a great addition as I am in pain while standing... also not impressed with the fact they did not have jars of buds to smell and look at like they did before you have to make your choices looking threw a sealed bag.. The buds I chose were of top shelf quality and cured very nicely happy with my choices, the only other thing I can say I was not happy with is the price of hash 50 dollars a gram...where is the compassion in that?
Initial Visit
6/16/2014
Jim K says: The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They asked the right questions and provided good answers to my questions. I was provided via email with very helpful information on various delivery systems.
Thanks for everything!
6/03/2014
Jan T says: I have been using the dispensery for a while now. Yes there are some strains that are a little dry, but a piece of apple or orange peel or a little piece of bread fixes the problem. I have found most of the strains have the desired effect. Sometimes the cost seems high at first but the quality always makes up for that. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Since I have been going to the dispensery I have completely come off fentynil pain patches, lowered my antidepressant and sleep medication doses. I have also gone from using a walker anytime I left my home to using a cane for most things. I have also been able to join an exercise class and have lost about 40 pounds... And still loosing! Thank you to everyone who is a part of this from the staff to even the voters who made it possible. I am looking forward to more great strides in the future!
Another quick review of first visit
5/29/2014
Matt W says: I forgot to mention in my first visit of the bud quality. I have seen alot of reviews about the bud being too dry but what I received was cured to perfection. It was not too dry and definitely not too moist weighing it down by any means. I would also absolutely love to see a glycerin based or propylene glycol based tincture, even though I know glycol based are difficult to come across. The person who i mainly spoke to was also very informed about everything and even though I knew what I was looking for he explained everything and what it does differently very well. Great service again. Very excited to be a part of CVD.
Excellent Visit

Richard P says: People there were great; very attentive and helpful. I'm very pleased with the product. So happy you're there for people in need.
Excellent first appointment
5/28/2014
matt w says: Right from the start I was happy with the kindness of the staff. I love the location with how private it is. It feels very secure and private. I was shown the entire store and explained what all the product was. Over all it was great to have another person who is knowledgeable to talk to about the various products. I am very grateful.
A good selection of great product!
5/08/2014
Ernie Z says: I have been utilizing CVD since 7/13. Great products and a very polite and professional staff! Yet, I too have had the unfortunate experience of receiving excessively dry bud. And the hash varies greatly in quality from batch to batch. I understand that everyone is still on the learning curve but I also believe that since we cannot touch the product (due to sealed bags) that the cultivators and trimmers could notify their packagers about the dryness of the product and perhaps offer a slight discount for a less than top quality product. I simply shop for the latest arrivals which are not too dry. Overall, a well run organization, working with us all to improve everything offered.
Title your review: you want dry
5/04/2014
andrew m says: don't complain about dry. dry is GOOD. Otherwise, you're paying for water! Put a little orange/apple peel in it yourself.
Fantastic

All while abiding to the letter of the law. Thank you Champlain Valley Dispensary and all your staff for an indispensable service.
Nearly Perfect
4/02/2014
Don L says: The staff is truly wonderful (knowledgeable, patient, kind). I'd go in to see them even if they didn't have the medicine I need! And, in my experience the product is of exceptionally high quality. I'm frankly just baffled by people's report's of inferior product. (And I am not, shall we say, a first time user.) I've been patronizing this dispensary for several months, and the potency has been (uniformly) good enough so that I was able to go from 4-6 hydromorphone (Dilaudid) pills a day to zero, starting the day I first walked in the door. (And that means no more of the constant headaches; no more of the frequent dizziness; no more of the predictable morning-after withdrawal!) The price and quality are much better than anything I've seen "on the street"--in more than 40 years of looking (on and off)! Cough. I will admit that the product can be a little dry at times, especially after it's been exposed to an open flame. In fact, mine often turns to powdery, gray ash just as soon as I've finished smoking it!
Dry!!!!!!!!!! ????? ?
4/02/2014
pete b says: Awesome to have and excellent variety, however product is way way to dry, dust, cannt smoke real ruff. Old product also, but fresh product and then you will be making a whole lot of people happier, ones that are already happy after trying when not so dried out, giving the great flavors, and help it provides, without smoking non stop as well for that matter. Well pleased glad to have you, and look forward to recieving many more years of help, thanks be well always, Pete B

A good experience
3/16/2014
Christian H says: Staff was very helpful, easy to find location, and the product works, though I will probably try different strains to compare. It is dry, but smells great and has the desired effect. I put a little orange peel in the bag and it moistened it up a bit. Great service...thanks
Initial Visit
3/11/2014
Nancy R says: Initial visit, so lots of info to digest. They were patient and kind and offered tips and advice. Product isn't as fresh as I had anticipated, but that doesn't seem to affect the results. They were helpful after the visit with problems navigating the website. Again, very patient. Glad to have this service available and I am sure it continue to improve as time goes by.

Weak products.
2/28/2014
Jay . says:  As others have said, the staff is nice. In regard to their buds and hash, the potency is way lower than I expected. I bought four separate strains (all Grade A) and the bud was dry, crispy, and weak. One of them was especially inferior, the buds turned to dust when touched and effect was non-existent. On my second visit, I tried two more strains, ones that didn't look so dry. Both "Fancy" grade. One of the two was good (but for the price, you can still find better on the street); the other was incredibly weak. Hard to understand how a bud can look nice, have a great smell, yet virtually no head buzz. On my third visit, I asked for one with a good intensity. The strain that was recommended to me looked dry. I tried it anyway, because I had tried almost every other. I also sprung for some of their pricey hash. When I got home, I smoked both together, and the effect was mild at best. What a let-down.

Amazing place
2/27/2014
Don L says: These folks are pros. The service they provide has enabled me to quit using prescribed hydromorphone (dilaudid) at all! The prices could hardly be more fair--certainly lower than "street" prices. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The product is amazing and works as advertized for my chronic pain and sleep problems. I don't have to wish this business well. They are doing a fantastic job on their own! Keep up the good work, folks!

James H says: My appt. went like clockwork, as usual. Great info provided to me and super people people behind the counter (I wish I was better at retaining names) who were so upbeat and friendly. I have used the service 8 or 9 times and have never meant anyone yet that didn't have a smile on their face. Thank you for providing me a service that, in two weeks, will have allowed me to be completely off narcotics for the first time since my fall in 2008. I am so proud of my state and certainly proud of all of you for working so hard to make it work so well. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Been There From the Start.
2/13/2014
Danielle B says:  I have enjoyed my experience with CVD. I have been going since 7/13 and watched CVD grow with each visit. I have no problem with the price. CVD is taking the air out of the black market and big pharma... which is money well spent. I have had great results with their strains, panic/anxiety has gotten managed pain is gone and blood pressure has dropped to the lowest it ever has been in my adult life. It is worth the trip from the NEK to get the quality of meds they offer. I am excited to be a part of this opportunity, and I am glad that the class that CVD operates with is 1st rate, safe, secure, and a non threatening staff. keep it up.
Good appointment
2/11/2014
Shona R says: Thank you to CVD for always being consistent with good products and knowledgable staff. I wasn't sure what to buy for pain, stress, and appetite and they pointed me away from one type and showed me what might work. They were right on ! I appreciate not having to use prescription drugs anymore. I would like to see oils similar to Rick Simpson's oil so that we could also heal the body which is what those potent oils do. Thank you CVD.

Francis B says: I am not familiar with using medical marijuana, but I was recommended to try it for pain, anxiety & sleep, so I did. I was nervous, but the staff was very helpful. I wish there was more time for counseling about products & symptom relief. I'm still not sure I have what I'm looking for, but I'm looking forward to meeting with them again.
Very Knowledgable Staff
2/07/2014
Connie A says: I have been able to try the different strains and have found that the staff gave an appropriate recommendation to begin with. So nice to be able to trust that you will get the same strength of medication each and every time.

A Pleasure Doing Business With CVD
1/03/2014
Bear P says: I was the first client CVD dealt with, and at the beginning things were 'a little rough around the edges'. However their attitude has always been, 'tell us so we can improve', and improve they have. I especially like the honesty of the staff when reviewing their products - 'strain A is reported as being good for this symptom, and not as good for this other issue'. Much better than relying on the fanciful names that are assigned by growers - would you know the difference between Afghani and C99?
Good overall experience.
12/23/2013
Bruce B says: Very helpfull staff. Prices will keep people buying off the street but good to have in dry times.

james b says: my initial visit was in the begining of december. Appointment ......... I was promptly given a few initial forms (5 minutes, to fill out and i am visually impared.) then brought in , very efficent. Staff.. Exellent. very helpful,polite, and patient. Strains & Prices..... quite a few strains about 12 when I was there. Would like to see more popular strains such as White Widow, Rhino, Blue dream, Overall the stock was well marked with t.h.c. and c.b.ds all stock is kept under wraps, placards are used to display stock. All packages are sealed so no smelling ( forgot to ask if samples for sight or smell were available ) No cocentrates i.e wax, shatter, b.h.o. or Rick Simpson oil. eddibles are few and pricy as is bubble hash 50.00 per gram. owww Prices are 3 tiered, dependent on income ....very nice!!! Overall........Very proffesional, no display reasons, i can guess , security and keeping things discreet.. I loved the staff and bellieve C.V.D. is so far the best in Vermont for price, kindness, compassion for the ill, and very professional, i will return and look forward to interacting with staff again. Thanks to all Jimi b.v.t.m.m.p. Central Vermont.

It is always a wonderful experience when I go as I always learn something new that the staff passes on to me. Waiting time is minimal and I leave being very confident that whatever the purchase I made that day will be of help to me.

jennifer g says: I found that the quality was there and the information that was provided was very helpful in finding what suits my needs the best. The only down fall is the cost, its just to bad that the government makes it so expensive for the distributors to keep the doors open witch ends up making it a high expense for the patients. guess it one step at a time at least we now have the freedom to buy and smoke legally.

Richard P says: Prices are a bit high - $400 with tax for an ounce. I've found high quality on the street for $320 to $350. Nice to know CVD is there just in case your street supplier is out of stock.

Very Welcoming

Robin R says: My first and only visit went very well. i was very nervous about it but found it a comfortable place. I agree with everyone, the prices are way too high for me to use on a regular basis. I want to not use chemicals for my symptoms but they cost less. For now I will use both when i can. Other states are much cheaper I've heard so why is the cost so high here?
Initial Visit
10/21/2013
Jack W says: The service was excellent. It didn't feel like a "head shop" it felt like medical care. Right from the start I felt that the staff genuinely cared. I was treated like an individual and as those of us with chronic pain and chronic illness well know that does not always happen in traditional medical settings. I was listened to and validated. It occurred to me afterward that I felt really empowered by the experience of being in control of how and when I medicate. I found the number of products offered sufficient but would always welcome more choices. Staff were professional and had good knowledge of the products. I have benefited significantly from my purchase. The only reason I did not rate CVD 5 stars was price. I hope that as the customer base grows, the prices will drop.
What I feel about CVD
10/12/2013
John B says: I was very impressed to say the least, both employees were very kind, respectful, honest, funny,and understanding. A very small organized place, with people that care. I feel so much better being able to talk with such a knowledgeable group, as well as able to purchase without going back to the "Black Market"....... Nice product, packaging, and delivery. Keep up the great work and look forward to many years of success. Thank you :-)
Thanks
10/05/2013
John J says: Awesome experience. Exact location would have been a bit more helpful understanding that low key presence is necessary. Perhaps more in depth instructions when making initial appt. could be provided.
First Time. Visit

Leslie A says: Professional, discrete, helpful, well organized with great staff. Showing growing pains as expected for new enterprise. Would prefer tincture made with glycerin (tastes better) instead of alcohol as well as other edibles (e.g. lozenges, suckers, chews). Prices consistent with CA dispensaries. The operation seemed a bit on the cloak and dagger side but I appreciate the privacy when discussing personal medical issues. Although I always supported the need for medical marijuana dispensaries in VT, I never thought I would be a client... Thank you CVD.
Lacking
8/31/2013
Ed e says: I was looking for an alternative to smoking, however, at this time they don't have a lot of choices. Either smoke it or go without. Looking for topicals and more than cookies. Prices seem higher for "supplies" also. Maybe it's a better quality item, but I think the website COULD address various alternatives (vaporizers, cooking with the products they carry, etc...). I am unfamiliar with all the things needed for best results & it could be better addressed. As far as the location, not exactly public transportation friendly, but super clean inside. The women that were working when I was there were super helpful, even with my dumb questions. I hope to see this business do well, but I hope the prices come down. Its very expensive for the typical person on disability.
Perfection at a price.
8/28/2013
David M says: $400/oz. for "Nirvana" (in my case, relief from MS and arthritis pain) is pricey. I hope it's not because you're the only game in town. Service and suggestions prime, as usual.
What a blessing!
8/21/2013
David M says: Simply the relief of knowing where my next medication will come from, and when, is a great load off. The people and product are of high quality -- the people open and sincere; welcoming professionals. Excellent first visit. Thanks, folks.
First and second visit
8/21/2013
Mary Ellen B says: I was so anxious the first time I went. Such a wreck. I don't remember the last time two complete strangers made me feel so comfortable. They answered all my questions and were very knowledgeable. Yesterday was my second visit and it was just as great as the first. No rushed feeling. They're such great people and they found what fit my pain and other medical issues. I have relief and can finally sleep at night for more than an hour or two.
First Visit
8/20/2013
Cathy J says: My first visit was yesterday. The staff is great! They are very helpful, you don't feel rushed, and they answer all your questions. I was very impressed and pleased with the experience. I wish the prices were lower because I don't qualify for the sliding scale but I am currently unemployed and we are down to one income. I can't complain about the product, though. It is doing exactly what they said it would to help my pain.
A bit nuts!
8/18/2013
Paul S says: Although I am pleased with the staff and product. The website does not give most of the info one needs. No prices, or discounts or product info. The non-taking of Credit Cards in the days where an IPhone can is strange. The truth is the product is great and the staff knowledgeable but it seems not all the wrinkles have been worked out. The price increase that just happened really inhibited my access to this therapy and this needs to be addressed. Also, we patients need help with advocacy. I basically lost my food stamps because they said it was not a federally sanctioned therapy. If you are going to be more pricey than drug dealers then you will send users elsewhere. On disability one gets about 1K/month. Spending 1/4 of that on an Rx, and them having it "not count" towards benefits has forced me to chose between my meds and my food. Also, we patients should have a place to meet as these situations are very unique. As the brother of a cop, I am happy that these nice people have opened CVD, but there are still a lot of things to do!
Terrific First Visit
8/13/2013
Roger D says: My initial visit went very smoothly. The staff are knowledgable, pleasant, and eager to answer any questions as thoroughly as you like. It's clear one's privacy is being protected. Chronic pain changes a person's life--mostly for the worse. But my experience with CVD were uniformly positive. I find the complaints about the range of products to be somewhat amusing. Look, the place is brand new. Plants do not mature overnight. It is simply amazing that a safe, legal, carefully-produced and tested alternative to opioid narcotics is available. What a wonderful service these folks provide for people who are genuinely suffering. I, for one, am extremely grateful.
How Great & Helpful The Staff Is At CVD
8/12/2013
Bonnie W says: I found the CVD dispensary to run very professional, the staff very knowledgeable, helpful and very nice people to deal with. I also REALLY like that there isn't a roomful of people that can see that your going to a dispensary, so the anonymity of clients is extremely protected-lessening the worry of being accosted or followed home or robbed. I felt very safe and feel like I'm in great hands here! Thanks So Much for all you do for us that come to you being clients-Your Great!!!

Andrew H says: Yesterday was my initial visit. It was amazing to go to a safe, clean and friendly environment. After looking at my survey they suggested a couple different types that work best for my injuries. Great choice, don't feel loopy just a muscles, which was the goal. Nice to be huminized also. Didn't feel like a # but someone that was cared about. Thank you
Great Staff
7/29/2013
Linda C says: Staff was very knowledgeable and personable. A bit pricier than I expected but they had the materials to get me started. Looking forward to more variety of product and more reasonable paraphernalia. For anyone with limited ability to walk be prepared to go around the building after coming out of the parking garage.
An Amazing Program
7/27/2013
Christopher S says: The staff was great, friendly and professional they were able to help me with everything I needed including answering questions about the different products. I look forward to when they get more items to choose from like edibles, extracts, oils etc. The products currently available are top notch.

First Visit
7/11/2013
Robert W says: Just wanted to say I was very pleased with how professional the staff was, little concerned about why there has to be tax on a medical products especially when i'm never taxed with any of my other medications, and not happy when someone uses a debit card and gets a $2.00 charge on top of the high prices that's already being charged. Hope to see more programs to educate Patients and maybe bring some of the prices down, otherwise very happy that Vermont finely got a place like this to be opened.

Laura P says: Very courteous staff, who were very helpful in guiding product selection. No edibles available yet, and prices slightly higher than I've found elsewhere. However, I feel it's worth those minor inconviences to support this new business.

Excellent first visit!
Jonathan B says: 
Staff was incredibly knowledgeable and patient! I had not had experience with other forms of cannabis than smoking, and they were able to explain what they thought would be most helpful given my symptoms. Juanita's tincture has been helpful at night. I am looking forward to more extracts in the new year.

If only all the businesses I worked with were as professional and interested in their customers as you I would be a happy camper. The service and education was first class. Even better, the suggestions have worked. Thanks for your great help.

Jill C says: 
Friday was my first visit to CVD and had no idea what to expect. The two women that I met were very nice, accommodating and had great personalities. They both seemed very well informed about the different products, and I was very impressed by the professionalism and confidentiality. The questionnaire that was required prior to my first appointment had some unusual (amusing?) questions, though, specifically regarding paranoia (would that EVER be desirable?) and so on. Cost-wise? It seems pricey to me, but I don't know how it compares to something that I could buy, well, somewhere else.
