There are no words to describe how great Dr. Melissa Miller has been with our fur baby. She has truly gone above and beyond to treat our special boy. I will be forever grateful for her; she cares so much about her patients and their families. She has stayed in close contact with me and checked on our boy daily. Our boxer is not just a dog; he is our first child, and Dr. Miller's compassion and dedication to getting him better means the world to us. Dog Owner
AWESOME!!! Dr. Wong and his staff are excellent. They cared for my dog like family, and the surgery came out just as it was explained to me. Thank you! Dog Owner
