Need turbo advice PLEASE

Was having turbo issues so I took it apart to inspect and found bad news. Not only was the ring seized and vanes somewhat stuck, one of the 3 small screws holding in the exhaust turbine must have come out and shredded the ends of the turbine blades. Looks like I'm in need of a replacement or total rebuild. I found a place in Florida called "Mike's Turbos" that rebuilds them for $350. Anyone have any dealings with them or recommend anywhere else? Thanks in advance.
