Dr. McCleary is wonderful!

posted 4 years ago

I just took my cat to Colonial Terrace today, and Dr. Joan McCleary was fantastic! She was NOT disgruntled because I called her out on a Sunday -- she was pleasant from the time she responded to my call, and took the time to explain and teach me about how to manage my cat's chronic medical problems.

She didn't talk down to me, but talked to me at my educational level, showing me how to administer enemas to my cat and subcutaneous fluids. She sent me home with supplies. She also took the time to call a local pharmacy to get me a prescription that has to be compounded for my cat.

She was excellent - great people skills and competent as a vet as well! It is a rare individual who has this kind of people skills plus technical skills, and who knows how to talk to people as individuals with confidence and compassion - esp. individuals who have pets with chronic medical conditions. I would see her again, and recommend her without reservation!

Beside my experience today, Colonial Terrace offers a four week puppy class with veterinary participation, free of charge, which I think is a great service to the community. I know the office manager who runs those classes, and she uses positive reinforcement methods and is a personable individual. I endorse this class for puppy owners.

Pros: Dr. McCleary; puppy classes; location

Cons: None

Thanks Colonial Terrance

posted 5 years ago

We started going to Colonial Terrance because of the location and we had heard great things. Now, we won't go anywhere else. Two of our dogs have had operations there and have always received the best care. In fact, Lucy just came home from having her torn ACL repaired (she's doing great, the problem is getting her to stay still). Thanks to all that work there, especially Dr. Stark (the only vet my dog Dusty has ever really liked). I can't even describe how great all the doctors who work there are. I appreciate all their help, and putting up with all my questions about my aging dogs. Thank you!!

Pros: Great vets, friendly people who really do care about your pets

Cons: Like any hospital/vet, sometimes you just have to wait
