“Just wanted to say thank you to Jeff at MacMedics Severna Park, Maryland for his great customer service. Last year, my daughter’s MacBook needed a new hard drive and he did a great job replacing it and getting it back to her so she could finish a project for school. She was having some minor issues after her classes ended in May so I brought back in to have him look at it. He did a quick check and advised me on our option it’s a 2009 model so it may be time for a new model. Jeff took time to go over new Apple options as well as some used models. It’s customer service like this that keeps me coming back to MacMedics. We bought my son’s computer there and I’ll be back to see Jeff when my daughter needs a new or used one. Thank You Jeff and all the great staff at MacMedics.”
Apple iPhone Repair Service 5-Star Review: “Life saver, absolutely amazing customer service and the price can’t be beat!!”
MacMedics is an Apple Authorized Premium Service Provider, and as such we service every item that Apple makes, including ALL Macintosh computer models (new, under Apple Warranty or AppleCare, Vintage (over 5-years old and no longer supposed by Apple), or Obsolete models), the iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. See http://www.macmedics.com/iphone for more info.
Recent 5-Star Review:
“Life saver, absolutely amazing customer service and the price can’t be beat!! I found MacMedics online after being totally disappointment with my local Apple store that said my water damaged iPhone 5 could not be repaired; it wouldn’t charge. Instead, they sold me a brand new iPhone to the tune of $800+ after it was all said and done. I looked online and found that the charger could be repaired, so off I went to find a repair shop. Walked into MacMedics and Sam checked my phone and said he thought it could be repaired, had to order the part which would arrive the next day. Sure enough, he called me the next day and said the phone was repaired. Cost me less than $90. I will be returning my brand new iPhone to the Apple store tomorrow. So glad I didn’t take those guys at their word. If I ever have another issue with my iPhone or other Apple product, I will go directly to MacMedics and bypass the Apple stores all together. I highly recommend MacMedics and will be referring them to all my friends. Thank you Sam for fixing my iPhone and saving me hundreds of dollars. I wish all service techs had your skill.”
Hurricane Joaquin is Coming: This Would Be an Excellent Time to Purchase, Check, or Upgrade Your Backup Plan!
Hurricane Joaquin will most likely hit the Mid-Atlantic area, and it will likely destroy some data in some way.
Here in the Mid-Atlantic area, MacMedics clients and friends should unplug their computers and remove and store backup hard drives in a dry place if you’re not going to be around when the rain and wind hits us.
Power surges via power lines and lightning hits via Comcast’s network seem to be the leading cause of damages to our client’s Macintosh computers.
Pro Tip: When disconnecting your computer system from power, unplug everything attached to your network, even the COAX cable from your cable or satellite box as that appears to be #1 surge source (based on past repairs). In regards to power surges, if your power DOES goes out (or starts to flicker), disconnect from power, as surges can also occur when the power comes back on as well!
This might also be a good time to enhance your back up plan by adding an off-site back up. MacMedics hosts Crashplan for our customers. If you’re interested in having us host your off-site backup, just call us at 1-866-MAC-MEDICS.
For our friends and clients in the Mid-Atlantic region, MacMedics recommends that you back up your hard drive via a “clone” use Super Duper or Carbon Copy Cloner, as that way you can “test” your back up to insure you have a good, bootable copy.
Take that back up put it in a Ziploc bag and have it ready to go with you, if you should need to evacuate. Also, hurricanes bring the rain with them, so plan ahead to protect your computer AND your back up. If you have to leave, put a garbage bag over your computer. If you have a light roof leak, that might be enough to save your computer.
The important thing is to PLAN AHEAD. Your back up is not complete if it’s not:
Here is the official Federal Emergency Check List for businesses:
• Conduct a room by room walk-through to determine what needs to be secured
• Obtain plastic to cover electronic equipment in the event of roof leakage
• Move electronic equipment away from windows
• Elevate electronic equipment off of the floor in the event of flooding
• Back-Up your systems and if possible store your back-ups off site
• Protect business records
• If you plan on being out of your business for an extended period, consider shutting down unnecessary electric breakers in the event of power surges
• If possible shut off gas valves leading into the business
• Consider alarm systems may not function during extended power outages.
• Remove valuables and cash to a safe location
• Move company vehicles to an area safe from flying debris and falling trees. Make arrangements with nearby parking garages to house vehicles if possible
• Remove expensive items from display racks, particularly near windows.
• Consider window breakage
• Understand your insurance policy and keep it in a safe location
• If you have a number of employees, establish a phone tree to distribute information
Here’s a few more tips from MacMedics:
1. If you do not have Ultra Call Forwarding, be sure to forward your business phone lines to your cell phone BEFORE you lose phone and/or power to your phone system.
2. Your alarm system should contain a small back up battery, but you can extend that greatly, by plugging your alarm system into a high capacity UPS system.
3. If your server is not set to Auto Restart after a power failure, it’s not to late to turn that on.
We have tons of posts on Time Machine and we even have a free White Paper on it If you’d like a copy, let us know. If you’re not using an automatic backup, your data is at risk!
P.S. If you are going to be where the hurricane is, then you DO need to go get a Ziploc bag right now, and put it with your iPhone. That way if you get caught outside or you’re checking out the surf at the beach, your iPhone is protected.

You might recall on Veterans Day we put out an offer for a free data recovery for a veteran who needed some help recovering photos of their service, important life events, and all of their data. Nobody stepped forward.
I am happy to report that we found an Army Ranger who was in need of our services after he dropped his 13” MacBook Pro.
The metal on the edge of the right palm rest (where the hard drive lives) was dented out from the impact of the fall where the force pushed the hard drive so hard it pushed out on the metal in an imprint of one of the edges of the hard drive.
We never really thought that we would be helping to the degree that we did. We were not able to recover 100% of the data due to the damage, but we got most of it. The number of photos of gravesites, combat memorials, and fallen comrades this Ranger had been staggering. It was our honor to bring this data back to him at no cost.
In the process of recovering his data, we decided that we would also fix his broken MacBook Pro screen as well.
If you see a veteran, let them know that you support them, and if you have the ability to pay for their meal, toll, haircut, or help them out with a repair bill why not do it? He told me they are not looking for a free ride, but as Americans there is no way we can ever re-pay the debt to our service men and women. So, if you can do something to acknowledge their service and sacrifice, you should.

The only place I will ever go for any Mac products.
Brought in a MacBook Pro and had the hard drive replaced and all data transferred. Two weeks later the track pad went crazy. I was on vacation and emailed Dana and he answered back immediately. When I returned home, I took the computer back and after consulting with Chris, decided to purchase a new MacBook Air. I was refunded the cost of the newly replaced hard drive and given a fair trade-in discount for my old computer. Great guys to work with and I recommend them highly for the personal service they provide. The only place I will ever go for any Mac products.
MacMedics remains our go-to place when time and getting it right is of the essence.
I brought my wife’s 2011 MacBook Air into the MacMedics Baltimore office yesterday to see if they could help remove some cruft from her machine’s hard drive. I was having some trouble removing all of the adware. Jeff met us at the door and in no time had downloaded an adware removal tool onto her hard drive, removed the adware, a boatload of movies and other items our daughter had placed on the machine and got the machine back to its former speed. Great to see professionals at work. This remains our go-to place when time and getting it right is of the essence. Thanks, guys.
Thanks Mac Medics
Thanks Mac Medics, especially Mike, for the excellent job of migrating the data and applications from my old Mac Pro to the new one. Could have had the migrating done cheaper at the local Apple Store but wanted to go with a trusted and reliable source for my data transfer. This is the second time I’ve used Mac Medics, and it was well worth the cost and saving my time. Also, Mac Medics is always there to respond to my questions with sound advice.
MacMedics was perfect!
MacMedics was perfect! I called them in the morning and told them about my Mac mayhem and they told me to come right over to the store. They fixed the problem in about 20 minutes and gave me all the information about was wrong with the computer and why. I understand that it may not always be that easy, but it was perfect timing. It was a million times more cost and time effective than any experience I have had at the Apple Store. They also were not condescending like the Apple Store can be. I will always come to MacMedics for all my Mac needs and definitely suggest you do the same. I also noticed that they have refurbished Mac products at great prices so definitely think about contacting them before buying your next iPad or MacBook. It was also great supporting a local business. Thanks MacMedics!
Two thumbs up!
Two thumbs up! When my MacBookPro began making ominous grinding noises during my travels I feared the worst, and set out to buy a new one – a cost I could ill-afford… Apple doesn’t repair laptops more than 5 yes old, so the store in Baltimore helpfully suggested that I consult with a good ‘repair shop’ before buying and gave me short list of reputable service providers to chose from. Two places in town could have helped but the turn around was more than a week – too late for my next flight. However, MacMedics assured me a 24 to 48 turn around, well worth the longish drive to Severna Park. Their service speaks for itself: – professional welcome and diagnostic on the spot, within a few minutes of my arrival I understood the problem (fan was shot); – Recommended replacement of fan, hard drive (to solid state for best performance). – They called the next morning (less than 24 hrs) for pick up; – They had done what they promised, ensured that nothing was lost from my old hard drive, completely updated the operating system, answered all my somewhat anxious questions and replaced – as a courtesy – rubber tabs under the laptop for which I knew Apple charged about $10 a pop. So, the laptop is working very well, the mechanics have been cleaned and renewed, the operating system has been updated, and I saved over $1,000. What’s not to like?
Amazing service!! Had a Mac that I recently acquired for my children. Brought all three kids to the store and Chris K. took amazing care of us. Even helped me entertain the kids. A+++ service. Will be going back to see them again.
I can’t tell you how wonderful MacMedics has been!
I can’t tell you how wonderful MacMedics has been! I am a photographer who has used Apple products for years. I end up taking hundreds of GB worth of photos and am very hard on my computer when it comes to editing and storing all of them. My Mac was a few years old and I wanted to upgrade my RAM and hard drive space. After speaking to MacMedics they helped me find the best solution- I ended up installing extra RAM, getting a solid state hard drive for my operating system, and getting separate hard drives to help store all of my photos. They fixed everything efficiently and were really patient and thorough when answering all of my questions! When I later had some issues with my disk permissions, they were able to walk me through what I needed to do to fix these and the problem was solved. Many people have no idea where to turn for Apple services, sales, or data recovery, so they just end up going to the Apple Store and paying too much for it, not getting an accurate diagnosis, or going elsewhere and ending up with terrible service. But that is not the case with MacMedics- they are great on all accounts. They also give you a 1 year warranty- a big plus in my book. Highly recommended!
Love the fast service and knowledgeable technicians!
Thanks, Macmedics for repairing my macbook hard drive! Totally covered under warranty-most appreciated for finding that out for us! Love the fast service and knowledgeable technicians!!

Mac Medics was able to understand my problem
Mac Medics was able to understand my problem and fix my computer much faster than I expected! I spent a week of frustration on the phone with Apple and even went it to an Apple Store but no one was able to help me. I walked in to Mac Medics, explained my problem and I was out of there in less than 15 minutes! I went in on a Monday and my Mac was returned to me on Friday – after being sent to Apple and getting the hard-drive recovered at Mac Medics. I am very impressed with the staff at Mac Medics and I would highly recommend their services! Thank you!
-St. Marys City, Maryland
They will be our go-to folks for Mac repair from now on
Chris was very knowledgable, friendly and helpful, and we talked about a number of options. This was about 2 pm on a Friday afternoon. He had the fan replaced, a new hard disk installed plus additional memory by 4pm the same day. I am impressed. They will be our go-to folks for Mac repair from now on.
-Sandy Spring, Maryland
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
“Thank you, thank you, thank you! You saved my data, and I’m grateful (and busy running the back-up right now).”
-Severna Park, Maryland
Great service as always!
“Thanks so much for getting Andrew out to help us so soon– he was great, and we’re very happy to be back up and running. Great service as always, thanks again!”
-Silver Spring, MD
I wish I had just gone to MacMedics first!
“In an effort to replace an old 2006 Macbook’s hard drive, I disrupted a few parts and was unable to get the unit to power on. I took the thing to both XXXXXXXXXXX in XXXXXXXXXX and two Apple stores before going to MacMedics. I wish I had just gone there first! The consultant Ed made a few quick adjustments and had the thing fixed in a jiffy, at no charge (I paid Chesapeake Computing a $40 service fee for nothing – they held it for almost two weeks and then informed me it wouldn’t turn on – duh!). MacMedics is what the Genius Bar should really be. Great customer service and truly knowledgeable staff. Thanks, Ed! You were awesome. Will definitely be back.”
This consultant was very easy to work with
“They made an effort to fix my MacBook Air after I spilled water on it. The consultant did a great job, but more importantly, he was understanding and easy to work with!”
Great Expertise! Reliable, Fast, Honest, Affordable!
“I was a MAC convert only a few years ago. My kids have been using MACS for years, all through high school and college. We’ve purchased from, and had MACMEDICS servicng our MACS since 2005, that 1st MAC I bought my now 25 year old, is still in operation in 2014. I purchased my Macbook Air, second hand from MACMEDICS 3 years ago, Im kind of tough on it, Ive used it everywhere with my mifi hotspot. Ive had it serviced 3 separate times by them. Each time MacMedics has performed service for us on mine or my kids MACS, I’ve been thrilled with how fast they are, and how reasonable they are. I highly recommend them!”
-Severna Park, Maryland
MacMedics – The 911 place to go
“I had a hardware issue with my IMAC with regards to the hard drive. When I took my IMAC to the Apple store, the hardware issue migrated to the white screen of death. I purchased a new IMAC and asked if it was possible to transfer data from the old hard drive. Unfortunately, the Apple personnel could not due to the issue with the hard drive. I searched the internet and stumbled upon MacMedics. I called them up and spoke to Chris who said they would look into seeing if they could retrieve the hard drive data. The good news was that it might be possible. I left them my new IMAC and my old hard drive and in less than a week they were able to retrieve all my data from the old hard drive and restore it on the new IMAC. I also brought in my daughter’s MacBook Pro and they replaced the old hard drive with a new solid state hard drive. Her Mac is now running efficiently. Pricing is very reasonable. Service is superb. Why would one want to go to any place other than MacMedics. If you want, you can ship your Mac to them and they will ship the repaired product back to you. Might sound corny, but thanks to a hard drive problem I found a place that is honest, responsible and and will only fix what is needed. A special thanks to Ed who worked on my IMAC and my daughters MacBook.”
– Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
MacMedics Super Service
“The Apple Store is always so busy with longer wait times. I highly recommend MacMedics, they always respond immediately to your issues or concerns. I dealt with Brandon Carter who is very knowledgeable and walk me through the corrective action.”
-Kent Island, Maryland
This consultant went above and beyond and did a great job.
“After having many problems with my mac, I went to the Apple store twice and spent over 5 hours in store (and they were still unable to fix my Mac even though it was still under warrantee). After leaving the Apple store and still having a computer that didn’t work, I found MacMedic’s store information and brought in my computer. Not only was every single employee beyond professional, understanding, and polite, they were also were able to fix my computer in less then 2 days! I have nothing but great things to say about MacMedics and would highly recommend this store to anyone who has an Apple product related issue!”
Dana Stibolt did an excellent job! Professional and timely service!
“I have to tell you about the wonderful experience I had with MacMedics, namely Dana Stibolt. It was Memorial Day weekend (Friday) and one of our Macs at THE LAND of KUSH vegan restaurant in Baltimore went haywire. The software wouldn’t launch. We kept seeing a spinning circle but no progress. After running HD diag and determining that there was possibly something wrong with the HD, we debated between going to the Apple store and purchasing a new one or seeking out other alternatives. We recalled one of our customers, Dana Stibolt, working for this company MacMedics so we reached out to him to get some direction. The million dollar question…”Is your data worth $200?” The answer, “YES!” Dana came out the same day to diagnose the problem. The hard drive needed to be replaced but most importantly HE SAVED OUR DATA!!!!! Everything was back to normal by Tuesday afternoon! Thanks a million, Dana!!!”
Thanks for the quick Macintosh Service.
“I just wanted to express my thanks for your quick repair of my MAC. As it is the lifeblood of my company, your quick attention and turnaround were greatly appreciated. As a small business owner, our computer equipment is crucial to our success. I dropped my MAC off on Wednesday afternoon, and you were able to diagnose the problem, have the part ordered and put it all back together for me to pick up by Thursday afternoon, limiting the impact to my business. I am so glad I found your company and plan to use MACMEDICS for all my future computer requirements.”
Customer for life!
I just returned from MacMedics on Benfield Blvd. My 2006 IMAC was not receiving e-mail and after trying unsuccessfully for days to solicit help from Verizon and Mac Support, I was at my wits end.
Long story short, I called at 10AM, made the 20 minute trek to MacMedics and was home with my beloved MAC in perfect working condition by 11:45AM. Sounds made up but it’s the truth.
The attendant (Chris) took over the repair process immediately and got right to the problem while explaining the mechanics of his repair. When I asked “how much?”, he said “it only took me 5 minutes so there is no charge”.
Needless to say, the customer service here is “off the charts”. These people are completely honest and extremely knowledgeable.
I have been considering upgrading to the new 27″ and when I do, I will be going to MacMedics rather than an Apple store.
Kudos to MacMedics! You have a customer for life!
