Reviews

What Our Clients Say

  • "As always, everyone is very nice, they are very loving and gentle with my dog, and fully inform me of everything that is going on. Plus, I am given time to process when things are confusing or emotionally difficult -- which means a lot to be given that time with the vet waiting patiently and not rushing me out for the next person. And I LOVE the Main Street experience. Everything about it here feels like a very personal, yesteryear experience that so often seems to be gone in our world."
    Curtis R.
  • "Outstanding, excellent as usual, very informative"
    Angelo C.
  • "Very nice and warm staff, good and clean atmosphere"
    Alexandra H.
  • "This was only my first visit but it was an incredibly pleasant one. My dog is super timid but was handled with care and got through it as best as possible for her. Dr. Nick was extremely gentle and kind, very glad to have him as my new vet."

  • "Everyone extremely courteous and professional"
