Hilltop--Heaven Sent

Most of you who have lived in Northwest Indiana for any length of time have probably heard about Hilltop. But maybe you've never been there, and maybe you don't know how NICE it is. Well. I own my own business and am a single mom on a limited income for the time being, and don't have health insurance. So I went there to see if I qualified for help with dental work that I DESPERATELY NEED DONE... and was scared because I'd never been there before and didn't know what to expect. I know when I've had to go to the welfare office before to get Hoosier Healthwise for the girls (health insurance for kids) I feel weird because I'm often going after work, which means I'm dressed up. I don't want people there who are legitimately in need to think that somehow I'm taking advantage of the system...and although no one there has ever made me feel that way I still sometimes feel self-conscious. I DID NOT feel this way at Hilltop! The room was a cheery bright yellow, the ladies at the front desk were super nice, there were pretty mums outside the front door. I don't know why cosmetics make such a big difference; it seems so shallow; but they do make a difference! I was very happy with my experience there-- and oh yeah I did qualify for the dental work:)

That's great about the Dental work. I've always heard good things about Hilltop. I agree the cosmetics really do make a difference! It's not silly at all.

Hooray, Hilltop! They're great.

Yes, that was Dan and I in Kouts today. I didn't see you until we were pulling away! We were headed down the street for a meeting with our doula.

Yes, Hilltop is a wonderful thing!! How long did it take you to get a dental appt? I am wondering because I hear a lot of complaints that it takes a long time to get in there.

Cosmetics make a huge difference. I took my son to an orthopedic doctor once and we left due to the condition inside the building. I think when you go to a doctor you want it to be clean, bright or soothing or a mixture, and comfortable. My dentist office is the best...I could literally take a nap in the waiting room...COMFY and COZY and beautiful!!

my sister's ob in crown point had an amazing decorator apparently; the walls were a very calm, contemporary brown mustard and one accent wall was olive green. there were gorgeous picture frames, candle holders, and sculptures. AND the ob was au naturel AND she recommended pediatricians who were pro-parental-choice on the vaccine thing. yay crown point ob!
