To our wonderful patients and the entire Dunwoody Community Brought to you by - Dunwoody Urgent Care On behalf of our entire staff, my wife Roxanne and I want to extend a HUGE thank you to all of our (over 22,000!) Dunwoody patients, and to the Dunwoody community as a whole, for the amazing support you have shared with us, particularly during the past couple of challenging years. It means everything to us that you voted us the best Urgent Care in Dunwoody FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, and that you continue to choose us to care for your illnesses and injuries. The outpouring of support and loyalty, both in-person and on social media (especially https://next-

door.com/), has been overwhelming! It is our honor and privilege to have earned your trust. We know that you have several choices for Urgent Care medical services in the Dunwoody area. Other clinics may have flashier signage or a shiny new building, but we have built something very special at Dunwoody Urgent Care that transcends those superficial qualities. We are not big business; not a multicenter, multi-state chain of retail outlets run by a team of business executives. We are a dedicated, caring, thorough medical practice, led and staffed by career healthcare professionals capable of caring for a much wider range of injuries and illnesses at the highest

standard of care. We look forward to caring for you soon! Warmest regards, Casey Locarnini, M.D. (“Dr. Loc”), Roxanne Locarnini, and the staff of Dunwoody Urgent Care

City Springs Theatre Company announces its 2022-2023 Season

PHOTO BY BEN ROSE

Brought to you by - City Springs Theatre Company This September, City Springs Theatre Company will open its fifth season of musicals at the Byers Theatre in the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center. The company, which is led by Executive Director Natalie DeLancey and Tony® Award winner and Atlanta native Shuler Hensley as its Artistic Director, has set a high standard for its productions, most recently mounting an acclaimed run of A Chorus Line directed by original cast member Baayork Lee. The fifth season offers a mix of classics and more recent Broadway fare, three of which are Best Musical Tony® Award winners. The 2022-2023 PNC Bank season opens in September with the Cole Porter musical-comedy ANYTHING GOES (Sep-

tember 9 - 25, 2022), featuring timeless songs such as “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “You’re the Top,” “Friendship,” “It’s De-Lovely,“ ”Easy to Love,” and the title song, “Anything Goes!” Then, it’s IN THE HEIGHTS (October 21 - November 6, 2022), the crowdpleasing first Broadway musical from the Tony®, Pulitzer® and Grammy® award-winning creator of Hamilton, LinManuel Miranda. IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. Newsday called it “a big, pulsing power-surge of a show, igniting a new energy source for musical theatre.” One of the company’s second season shows that was canceled by the

pandemic is finally back on schedule. MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT (March 10 - 26, 2023) retells the legend of King Arthur, his Knights of the Round Table, and of their search for the elusive Holy Grail. Aided in their journey by the glamorous Lady of the Lake, the knights sing and dance their way through medieval England, where they encounter cows, chorus girls, a killer rabbit, and assorted French people. The season finishes on a high note as Tony® Award Recipient Baayork Lee returns to direct and choreograph the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber musical CATS (May 5 - May 21, 2023). Based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot, this international hit musical features one of the most treasured songs in all of musical theatre —” Memory”. Since its debut, this feline-themed

dance spectacular has been translated into 16 languages and has been seen by more than 73 million people worldwide. Current subscribers can renew their subscriptions May 10 - June 6, 2022. New subscriptions will be available to the public beginning June 21, 2022. Complete details can be found at CitySpringsTheatre.com City Springs Theatre Company still has two productions on tap in the coming months. The hit musical (and soon to be movie musical) THE COLOR PURPLE plays May 6 - 22, 2022 at the Byers Theatre in the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center, followed by the classic WEST SIDE STORY which will rumble its way into the theatre July 8 - 24, 2022.

Thank you for voting for Conway Law! Brought to you by - Conway Law Wow! This award is such an honor and Conway Law is truly humbled to be chosen by the community as one of the Best of the Perimeter. In 2013, Attorney Chris Conway left a national insurance defense firm to start Conway Law. He desires to fight for justice for those injured by someone else’s negligence or recklessness. He fights for his clients by using what he learned defending insurance companies. He and his family love living in Dunwoody and being involved in the community whether with Chesnut Elementary, Dunwoody North Fins, Dan & Company, Rush Union, or Orbit Arts Academy. Here is something practical to remember if you are ever in a car wreck: Conway Law’s Four (4) “C’s” for car wrecks: (1) CALL the police. People lie and an insurance company will not believe you unless there is a police report documenting the wreck; (2) COLLECT information. Take pictures of everything: your vehicle, the other vehicle, the locations of the vehicles after the wreck, the other driver’s tag and insurance information. A picture is worth a thousand words and often the car that hits you looks worse that your vehicle. (3) CARE for yourself. Go and see a medical professional if you feel pain or stiffness, persistent headaches, numbness or tingling going down your arms or legs, or pain in any other area of your body. If you wait

PROVIDED

to see a doctor hoping that the pain will go away or suffer in silence, an insurance company will use that against you. (4) CALL Conway Law. Insurance companies are

in business to make money and try everything to diminish the value of your claim. You need someone with the knowledge and experience to fight for you.

Thanks for Voting For Us

First Runner-Up for Best Law Firm of Perimeter 2022! At Conway Law, we pride ourselves on giving each client the attention they deserve and providing top quality representation.

Attorney Chris Conway spent years working at one of the top insurance defense law firms in the country before opening Conway Law. He puts his experience and knowledge to work for you. Whether you have suffered, been injured or have lost a loved one in a car wreck, a tractor-trailer collision, a slip and fall or some other catastrophic situation, we will fight for you and give you individualized attention.

We treat your pets like valued family members Brought to you by – Dunwoody Animal Medical Center, AAHA accredited We are honored to be voted the Best Veterinarian of 2022! We are thrilled to have been able to provide superior veterinary care for the Dunwoody and Sandy Springs communities for more than 32 years. Doctors Johnson, Pinsky, Gould and Hamer have over one hundred combined years of experience as veterinarians. Most of our full-time employees have worked for Dunwoody Animal Medical Center for ten years and many have worked for us for more than twenty years. Dunwoody Animal Medical Center provides the highest quality of veterinary medicine for cats and dogs. Dr. Johnson performs many surgeries laparoscopically, allowing for a marked reduction in post-operative pain and a quicker return to function. We use high-end diagnostic equipment including digital radiography, ultrasound, laser therapy and the highest level of inhouse diagnostic laboratory analyzers. Dunwoody Animal Medical Center is the only independently owned and operated veterinary clinic in Dunwoody. We are not owned by a public corporation, allowing for more flexibility in our practice and more individualized care for our patients.

From the beginning of our veterinary hospital, it has been important to us to support our community through our sponsorship of local non-profit organizations and charity events. These include the Dunwoody Fourth of July Parade, Lemonade Days, Dunwoody Nature Center, our local schools and numerous youth & charitable organizations. We are honored to provide the veterinary care to the K-9 Police Officers of the Dunwoody Police Department. Dunwoody Animal Medical Center is a fully accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association. Today, only 12%–15% of veterinary practices in the US and Canada hold the “AAHA-accredited” designation. AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada. Practices that choose to pursue accreditation are evaluated on stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine— from pain management and patient care to team training and medical recordkeeping—and are continuously updated to keep accredited practice teams at the forefront of the profession. We look forward to continuing to provide outstanding service to our clients and superior veterinary care to our patients.

Brought to you by – Budi’s Sushi

First, I would like to express how grateful we are for the Dunwoody community since the first day we opened our place. Budi’s sushi team and founders are incredibly honored to be voted as Best Seafood Restaurant and 1st Runner Up for Best New Business opened in 2021. Looking back to the year of 2020, the pandemic brought extra challenges when we decided to open our second location in Dunwoody. With lockdown and restrictions in public places, if this restaurant was to survive, I had to think out of the box. That brought me the idea to operate this second location differently. As a result, here at Budi’s Sushi Dunwoody we use a “hybrid” concept. We utilize a QR code for customers to view and order our menu, whether they dine-in or place a takeout order. All food is served in eco-friendly containers. In that sense, it is like a self-service. However, customers also get full service when they dine-in. When you come to Budi’s Sushi Dunwoody, you will be greeted by our team, and you’ll be asked if you would like to dine-in or do a takeout. For takeout, our team will direct you to the register to place an order. Next thing is our team will let you know the estimated time of your order. For dine-in, customers can have a seat anywhere they are comfortable. Then, our team will bring you water and utensils while you explore our menu. Once you order via QR Code provided or at the register, our team will bring the food to you, and they will check-in with you just like other full-service casual dining places. A lot of people thought this concept would not work. In contrast, we made it work! I believe anything is possible when you communicate your goal to your team and help each other on how to achieve it. In addition to that, I am blessed to be trusted by Budi’s Sushi founders to run this business into a success. I could not have done this without my wonderful family who always believe in me, a team that brings their A-game every day and loyal customers in the Dunwoody community! Budi’s Sushi Dunwoody commits to

serve the best and freshest ingredients along with friendly service. In our menu we have a variety of dishes such as Sushi, sashimi, ramen, healthy protein bowl, salad, appetizer, express lunch specials and the Ocean pyramid is our signature dish. Customers can enjoy our food as dine-in, in store pick-up, curbside pick-up or schedule an order with the same fresh quality. Seating options are available inside and outdoors. At the Dunwoody location our customer is always welcomed to bring their own beer or wine with no cork fee. We will supply glasses and a chiller so that customers can enjoy their favorite drinks while dine-in. Once again, thank you Dunwoody and we will see you soon with your families, friends or loved ones.

Larry Feldman, the Principal is a long time Dunwoody resident, and former Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce Board Member who wanted his clients FELDMAN to be treated like he would like to interact with a Professional. The firm does not have voicemail for the staff, to ensure that calls from clients are answered by knowledgeable professionals.

Clients who are ‘frequent flyers’ can always ‘sign and drive’, but typically the closing experience will be educational and informative. All clients deserve a plain English explanation about what they are agreeing to, and what they will be responsible for in home ownership. Because Larry’s financial background is a little atypical for most Closing attorney’s he will explain how to get rid of Private Mortgage Insurance, and how to save thousands of dollars on your Mortgage over the life of the loan. Larry’s background prior to becoming a mid-life crisis attorney was 25 years in technology sales to major corporations. “Many times, when agents call me for legal advice, it is really about sales advice”, it helps to be conscious about the sales process in the context of providing advice and getting everyone what they ultimately want – either a house or a check.

From the bottom of hearts, thank you to the Dunwoody Crier community Brought to you by – Healthy Kids R Us The most gratifying moments for doctors and nurses come when our patients are healthier due to our care, and when they praise us, and recommend our services to others in the community. Two and a half years ago, in the middle of a pandemic, Healthy Kids R Us was just a concept – a vision. We integrated that vision into our name HEALTHY KIDS R US. Our sole objective is to keep Kids healthy by providing affordable, continuous and comprehensive medical care. So, it’s unfathomable to think that for the second year in a row, HKRUS or Healthy Kids R Us has been recognized as the Best Pediatric Clinic in the Northeastern Atlanta Perimeter. We are extremely grateful, as we accept this honor. We pledge once again, to remain deserving of this trust through continued hard -work and increased vigilance during this uncertain, and demanding pandemic period of our life. From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU for recognizing our effort and fortifying our determination to serve the Greater Atlanta Community.

We are so honored to be among the best that our community has to offer! For over 53 years, our vision at Dunwoody Baptist Preschool has been to inspire the love of learning by nurturing each child within a Christ-centered environment. We are committed to encouraging our early learners to grow academically, but even more importantly spiritually. We, as teachers and staff, care deeply that all of our students know who God is and that He loves them unconditionally. We are a fully accredited preschool through COGNIA. At Dunwoody Baptist Preschool, we offer 2, 3 and 4-day Playmates classes for children ages 6 months to 2 years as well as 5-day Preschool classes for 3’s, 4’s Pre-K and our unique Young 5’s

class. Early morning drop-off, extended day and enrichment classes in cooking, phonics, science, ballet, piano and music are also offered.

Our academic curriculum for 3’s and under is Creative Curriculum and the Saxon curriculum is used in our 4’s and Young 5’s classes. All children at DBP not only learn and explore within the classroom, they enjoy music and science classes, gym, playground time and chapel. In addition to our caring teachers and high-quality learning experiences, we focus on developing our children spiritually. With Bible stories woven throughout the curriculum, our children experience God’s truth, power and love in fun and engaging activities. To register your child, please visit dbc.org/weekdayschool.
