The techs and receptionists are friendly, caring, and helpful (special shout out to Stacy J for always treating us like we're Norm at Cheers). There are many vets in the area, some closer, some cheaper, but this group has my heart and my business!"
    Mandesha R.
  • "It's hard to find people that are willing to help you when you're a low income family, but this place was amazing at looking up all possible outcomes and costs before going ahead and treating our 12 week old puppy Ranger, after our 80 lb dog sat on him during rough play around our house. Dr. Corwin was amazing and very thorough with her exam to make sure Ranger wasn't seriously injured. All staff were very informative and extremely nice! Thank you ladies!"
