Dr Hormuth is always very friendly, patient and informative. The facility is always clean.
Dr. Hemler does an outstanding job of examining Phoebe and guiding me as to what Phoebe needs. She takes time to fully explain Phoebe's health status and offers helpful suggestions to help maintain a healthy weight.
Sarah is by far the best vet in Missouri, in my opinion she's probably the best in any of the states. She truly treats all animals with the best medical care and lots of love. I've had other vets, through the years, treat my babies until I met Sarah. I recommend her to all my family/ friends not to mention to anyone who needs the best vet for their babies.
