Saved Molly's Life

posted 7 years ago

During a severe illness, Molly was referred to Dr. Johnson, specializing in internal medicine. After many tests and another near-death episode, Molly was diagnosed with cyclical neutropenia. A routine of antibiotics and predinisone therapy stabilized her condition. Continued monitoring is required but we credit Dr. Johnson to saving her life.

There have been several communication issues with the front desk but perhaps it will improve when they move to a bigger facility.

[updated on 2008-04-03 10:57:24 EDT GMT]:
Since they are specialists, a referral is required from your local vet or emergency facility. I wouldn't hesitate to take my pet there again. In addition to internal medicine, they specialize in opthamology, dermatology and surgical procedures.

Pros: Great Veterinary Specialists, Great technicians

Cons: Communications

The Best!

posted 7 years ago

I just brought my dog home from this practice. I saw three of the staff from Wednesday to Saturday. My dog had a mass on his spleen and pneumonia. Dr. Robb operated, Dr. Payne did the pre-op testing, and Dr. Pardo checked him out. Words can't describe this place. They treated my 13 year old dog with such care and love and tenderness. They never once questioned my decision to try to save him, even though he is a sr. citizen. They enouraged me to call as often as I wanted to check on his status, allowed us to visit and bring our own food, were polite and caring through the whole ordeal. Thanks to all who had a hand in caring for our boy! 24 hr. a day, 7 day a week care at this practice. What more could you ask for?

Pros: knowledge

Cons: none

This place helped me out more than once, during the night and on weekends. When they had to put one of my cats to sleep, the doctor was almost as sad as I was.
