Very friendly and helpful staff/docs. And they follow-up after care to check on our dogs. Really pleasant experience!
Everyone is really kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and the costs are reasonable.
As always, I was welcomed as soon as walked in as the staff is always the best. So friendly and happy. The time and care that we receive from Dr Johnson and his staff is incredible. Never rushed always answers all of my questions. When I leave, I always feel so much more assured that my animals have had the best care by all of the staff and Dr Johnson and Dr Vasquez.
