All the reviews mirror my thoughts of this establishment. It is outstanding. The doctor is a kind, helpful, compassionate, understanding, doctor, who went above and beyond to help my suffering dog. The staff was also kind, compassionate, helpful and friendly. I did not read the reviews before I went, but I can confirm, they are 100% accurate. I cannot thank this office enough for all that you did for my dog. It is a miracle that she is better and I am so grateful for all the efforts made to help her. Thank you so much.

The vet was so incredibly sweet. You can tell he really loves his job and cares. He was able to keep my dog relaxed, comfortable and not feel nervous. He was honest and upfront. He sent us home with medication that started to work immediately. I'm so happy this place was recommended to me and think this will be my new Dr for my old guy, hoping he gives us a few more good years.

I would like to single out Dr J. Iqbal. He is simply outstanding, going far beyond what you would normally expect from a service provider. If we had a vet in our family, we could not get more compassionate care than Lou got from Dr Iqbal. Everyone working in healthcare could learn from him! They have now become my primary vet.Highly recommend !
