What Clients Are Saying
I've been taking my senior standard poodle to Dr. Martin for 2 years now, ever since I moved to this area. I have been so happy with the professionalism, kindness, caring and knowledge of all the team members here. This morning we had an urgent situation arise and even though they were fully booked, Dr. Blom squeezed us in and took excellent care of Abella. I left much calmer, with a very thorough plan of action for the next few days and a feeling of comfort and optimism.
