    They couldn't even replace my USB port or keyboard. Then they charged me another $53 dollars for labor on top of the $68 dollars I spent for the Groupon. I felt they really ripped me off and did NOT know much about computer repairs at all. I would not recommend anyone use this place for their repairs...

    They replaced my keyboard and cleaned the inside of the computer after I spilled something on it. The work was done quickly and the price was as quoted. Very pleased.

    MDofPC saved my data. I had a catastrophic hard drive crash and attempted self recovery for about 3-4 weeks before taking it to them. They were able to recover everything. I mean EVERYTHING. I loved the job they did so much I took another HDD to them 3 weeks later!

    I brought in my 2009 IMac, figured it needed a new hard drive. So distressed thought I lost all family photos. Joshua did his magic and now it works. No hard drive needed. Photos intact.

    Quick turnaround - 2 business days for diagnosis and a HD swap and OS install. Accurate diagnosis. Very reasonable charge particularly when compared with my nearly being gouged by a big box store for a supposed virus (not detectable by Microsoft Security Essentials or AdAware?) that was really a bad hard drive.

    MD of Pc was a lifesaver for my company, I took my Mac G5 to him at 11:45 am and he called at 4:15 pm telling me it was fixed. I would definitely recommend MD of PC to anyone and will continue to use Jon in the future. Mark Caranda/ Graphics In Print

    Apparently bring a defective mac g5 back to life did not warrant a 5 star review :-( When I contacted the customer the spare g5 we swapped him for $50 (we could have ordered the exact part for $200+) did not hold the same amount of ram. This computer is over a decade old and parts are not easily obtained but we did offer to make it right free of charge.

    We just saved years of pictures, documents and files on a failing hard drive. Some do not understand that most places will only take a few minutes trying to recover your data, while we will spend days if needed. Your data took years to compile and deserves the extra time for a good thorough job to be done.

    My experience with MD of PC was great! I can not turn on my laptop and I thought I should buy a new one. I brought my laptop to MD of PC and awesome! The technician repaired my laptop issue within several times and made it running as good as before. Found no other issue after since. Thanks a million.

    I found some issues on my Windows 8. I brought it to MDofPC Doctor of Computers and asked the technician to re-install it. But he said that my OS only need repair than re-install work. I agreed with his price. He repaired my Windows 8 in a couple of hours and my laptop now running smooth again. Thank you.

    I called their store and asked them to send someone to my office to install a new internet connection for our 3 PC units. The technician from MDofPC Doctor of Computers was polite and friendly. He came in to our office within an hour after my call then he work fast to installed a new internet connection in my office without any problem. The price was cheap and he was also explained everything to all of us so we can use the internet connection safely. Thanks for this great service.

    We are the one of the cheapest in the surrounding area and the job was done next day. Just another time I do not understand what we have to do to get a 5 star review?

  • Cindy W. Jun 17, 2013
    Fabulous! They do what other IT staff and services cannot. Personalized and timely services and a MORE than reasonable price. They have recovered data, rebuilt old computers, kept my "dinosaur" alive when I needed it to be so, come to my home, and more. They are knowledgeable, professional while personable, and explain things in terms I can explain. I drive quite far to take advantage of MDofPC! Just wouldn't trust anyone else to be able to do what they can do.

    MDofPC technician is really super. I had several viruses that were fouling up my computer, and an inoperable disc player...They immediately fixed the virus problem, then ordered a new disc player for my Dell. 2 days later, I got a call from them notifying me of the arrival of the disc player. I returned to their place of business, and they immediately installed the new part. Their charges are fair, and their comprehension and fast work really impressed me.
