Our cat became suddenly ill with nausea and diarrhea. We immediately took her to a local vet who at first said they were too busy and then said we would have to wait at least an hour. I checked on line and found St Francis and called. They said bring her immediately, saw her quickly and were extremely caring, compassionate and professional. The staff and doctor explained everything clearly and I would not hesitate to refer them. In fact I made an appointment to bring my other cat for a routine exam.
