Buyer Beware! – Design Doctors are ripoff artists extraordinaire. Their BBB rate is F. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BELEIVE ANYTHING WRITTEN ON THIS WEBSITE THAT INDICATES TO THE CONTRARY. The BBB tells all.
I do NOT believe these reviews one bit. This woman is a scammer. I am in Chicago. We found Rhonda through Craigslist.
We ordered furniture through her "company" - a bedroom set and dining room table. The dining room table came on the second delivery and was scratched all to heck. I refused delivery of it.
She demanded cash as payment in the beginning. We refused. DO NOT PAY CASH IF YOU INSIST ON BUYING! We paid with credit card through her husband's DDS and, boy, am I glad we did because we had NOTHING but problems.
A U-Haul truck showed up at our house for the first delivery missing pieces (a nightstand missing, knobs for dresser missing although dresser was there, dining room table missing). Some pieces were immaculate and beautiful! Some pieces were not. We purchased the Martha Stewart Bernhardt set.
When pieces were missing, she promised another delivery....and that's the last we would have ever heard from her if not for my barage of emails and phone calls. More than 6 months went by with my calling and emailing but I only received false promises or no response. I threatened legal action a dozen times. Finally filed a credit card dispute after talking to my credit card company.
I see her posting to Craigslist a ton (even today). BUYER BEWARE! What we bought was a good deal but it turned into a NIGHTMARE dealing with her. I regret it.
My husband and I just relocated to the mountains of NC, after living in Florida for about 10 years. We love it! We purchased a home that was about 1500 sq ft less than our Florida home, so we needed help in deciding where to put our existing furniture. We also did not know where to put our personal things that we had collected over our 37 years of marriage. I found the ad in a local magazine about Design Doctors and gave them a call. What a life saver. They not only found the perfect places for all my things, but recovered a sofa and two chairs and refinished a dining table that had been in my husbands family. They also brought in a new coffee table, and another leather recliner for my husband. And to pull it all together, a beautiful rug was placed in the living room. I love our new home. It does feel like we have lived here forever, not just a couple of months. Hooray for Design Doctors.
I really appreciate this company. I recently had a friend refer me to Design Doctors. They had used them a couple of years ago, and so I decided to meet with them. I really liked most of the things I already owned, but couldn't seem to pull it all together. They met with me again after the initial meeting, and showed me some things they felt would help to make everything work for my rooms. Now that we have completed everything, I am totally amazed at what they did. They moved a piece of furniture that was in the living room, upstairs, to our landing area. Now, when you walk into my home, your eyes are pulled up to look at that piece and my high ceilings. I love it! I really am thankful that I heeded my friends advice and made that call.
I found this company on Craigslist and was excited that they had the high brands of furniture. I was very skeptical. But, I called them, and they asked for a deposit on the furniture that I was wanting to order and I gave them a deposit via credit card. I waited only about three weeks, and my furniture was delivered. I was really very surprised at the quality of furniture. It was a Bernhardt Dining Room that I had priced here in the Atlanta area for about one third more than Design Doctors had priced it. I am very happy. I would recommend them again. I have asked them for additional furniture and am waiting for them to deliver again.
Thank you is not enough. I recently was looking for chairs for a dining room that I had purchased years ago, and discontinued. Rhonda was so helpful and found the chairs. They are perfect. And, she also visited my home when she came to my area to give me some design ideas. I was so impressed that I went ahead and booked the home makeover. It was absolutely beyond my imagination. She brought in her people, they moved all my things around, and it was an amazing transformation. I would highly recommend this company for furniture and design. Thank you, all of you, Melissa, Justin, Ashton, and Evan.
I really love my leather chair that Rhonda helped me find!
I also needed a new sofa and Rhonda found me the perfect sofa for my room! She took her time and found just the right sofa that works in my room! The prices and quality are great! Thank you Rhonda! Thanks Kate
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE GOOD REVIEWS :) I am glad that I had a friend that referred this company to me. I needed design services and wanted to purchase furniture and after tireless trips trying to figure this out myself, I admitted defeat. I just could not get the job done on my own.
I found both the services and prices excellent! The attention to detail and the quality of my new furniture exceeded my expectations (which were high to begin with). Love my home and Rhonda gave me exactly what she promised. I recommend this company and can't thank them enough for such a pleasant experience.
My husband and I just retired to Florida and needed help decorating our new home. We needed some new furniture and had older items that I wanted to keep. She was referred to me by a friend from Raleigh/Cary NC. I have always been afraid to hire designers because they usually come with a hefty price tag and it always seems to have too much of a furniture store look. Not only did she find me great prices on new furniture(discontinued pieces), she also worked in my old stuff and made it all work together.
Will definitely refer her anytime, had a great first experience and really enjoy coming home to see her beautiful work.
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE BAD REVIEWS! I purchased a discontinued Bernhardt sideboard from Rhonda in November 2012. The ad said everything was new in the box. The piece arrived and it was nice, but it took me about 30 minutes to figure out that the piece was not new in the box...matter of fact, it had been repainted in a matte finish and the 24kt hardware was missing and replaced with cheap hardware from Home Depot. I contacted Rhonda and she said she would have the second piece she had in storage delivered in the beginning of January which never happened. I have sent her several follow up emails and she has not responded. Unethical and Unprofessional!!!!
