Appreciate NHCC for many reasons. Firstly, a friendly greeting from the receptionist. The nice waiting area is calm because only cats and cat guardians are there. It is stressful for a cat to be in a carrier, and seeing/hearing dogs barking would make it worse for my cat. Tea is available, and there are good cat magazines/books.
Dr. Doe is always professional.
I'd prefer not to "have to go" to the Vet, but Nob Hill Cat Clinic makes it as pleasant as possible.
