What our clients say about us

  • "My bad luck in life is my dog's skin problems. This goes back to a dog I had 20 years ago that leads me to review this doctor, something I never do. He made his diagnosis and treatment plan so quickly that I doubted it at first, but I realized he had quite a bit of experience under his belt (from the accreditations and diplomas in the hall and exam). So, I went with it including a severe diet change (after years with a top brand). I couldn't be more impressed now, a month later. Honey's skin is so much better, and her demeanor has improved too (no more itching and discomfort). I commend this doctor and his experience."
    - Joshua K.
  • "This place is great. The location is modern and clean and the people here, especially the receptionist, is very caring and knowledgeable. I used to go to Casillas, and although I loved that place, I will be coming to this place from now on. Their prices are very affordable, and even lets you know of options for you to save! I think consultation is $35. Fast and affordable, with plenty of parking."
