How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Our ratings tables will help you find area shops that offer top-quality shoe repairs at reasonable prices.

Shoe repair shops can perform several tasks to fix up your footwear.

Here are a few basic steps to follow in dealing with whatever shop you choose.

Our ratings turn up many local drycleaners who can tune up your clothes. The really good news? Many top-rated shops also charge low prices, meaning they won’t clean out your wallet while they clean your wardrobe.

Take charge by selecting the best doctors and other providers and making decisions about your medical care. Here's how.

The most important thing you can do to assure yourself high-quality medical care is to form a strong relationship with a good primary care physician and, at times, together make informed decisions on specialty care.

We advise consumers to select physicians who are “board certified,” and we report on board certification status in our ratings tables. We describe here what board certification means and why it is important.
