Dr. S is wonderful. She is smart, obviously loves animals, her job, and manages us owners well, too. She is well read, and keeps up on recent information. The office is organized (probably since the turnover in ownership) and support staff is great. I found her informative and her information was based in concrete information. I strongly recommend her office, but don’t tell too many people so I can get an appointment when I need it!
Small, clean, caring staff, very friendly and will listen to your concerns. Being new to the area, we spoke with locals and they are very happy with the hospital, staff and doctor. So, we gave it a try.
NO COMPLAINTS HERE! We were happy with the service we received and the way our pups were treated.
First, we were received graciously. Next, a “tech” did a general checkup and the dog got lots of loving attention during the process. The doctor came in and did a thorough exam. She was most friendly. All in all, the experience was cordial, and, of course, our dog got what we feel was excellent care. We will come back.
