Can anyone recommend an auto mechanic for minor car repairs/maintenance---or even who to avoid? Also looking for dentist, family physician and ob-gyn. We are in our late 40's and children in college. Thanks!!

Welcome!! I hope you love it here.

I go to Firestone for minor repairs, oil changes, etc, very reasonable.
Schilling Farms Dentistry Or Dr. Galella for dentist.
Have not found a family physician I like yet, or OB. You might need to get out of collierville towards Germantown or Memphis for a good place. Of course, I am limiting my search to BC/BC docs.

If you need a vet, I highly recommend Kelsey Kanine.

I cannot give advice on a particular mechanic- many are good in Collierville.
Dentist - I would say to go with the above. We went all the way into Memphis to a Dentist because of our insurance.
Doctor - Mary Margaret Hurley. She is wonderful! Her office is in Germantown. Not too far away. She is very thorough. Her sister happens to be an OB/GYN.
Further advice: avoid the Wal-Mart if you can...it is horrible. Target is great and has nice pharmacists. Walgreens will make you wait a day and half for your meds. No good Mexican in Collierville (if you are used to real Mexican). Best eateries are Memphis Pizza Cafe, Lenny's, Germantown Commissary, Swankies, etc. Many great places to eat in Germantown and east side of Memphis.
Oh! and I was so happy when I moved there - they have a Pottery Barn Outlet in Memphis!
Good luck and enjoy the rich culture and amazing history that Memphis has to offer.

Best real Mexican is Deli Mexicana on Germantown Road!
aka Las Tortugas Deli Mexican.

We take our cars to Kaz's, right there on the square in Collierville. Good pricing and I like the fact that they do not BS you on stuff and are not about ripping you off

Wow, you guys are great. I really appreciate all the advice----sometimes I feel lost and overwhelmed starring into the yellowpages!! I moved here from SC, but spent the summer in Houston---so, I had the opportunity to try some good Mexican. Any newcomer tips are welcome and appreciated.

We've been happy with Family Medical Group on Hwy 72. Had a negative experience with another doc in Collierville: "Family Medicine Partners" on Poplar so can't recommend them.
