As far as I'm concerned, Colleen (Dr. Thorp) is the best vet in northern Michigan. She saved two of my 'kids' which gave us extra time together which I was so thankful for. She is knowledgeable, experienced, and caring. She was the first vet that I had ever seen get down on the floor with my 'kids' vs hauling them up to the table. The thing about Dr. Thorp is that she genuinely cares about animals and loves them which makes her an excellent vet. The staff are nice and caring, too. I can't give high enough kudo's to Maple River.
