The vets and staff are all very professional, and it's apparent that they love their work. It's a nice, calming atmosphere in the office -- there is a beautiful tank in the reception area with some beautiful big terrapins in it. We followed Dr. Elton Vuyfhuis when he and Dr. Perkins opened their own facility, and we love the help they've given to us over the years.

What a wonderul vet clinic. The vet spends time with you and your pet without appearing rushed (even if he is). He seems very knowledgable about the diverse set of animals that he treats. It almost feels like a small-town practice, like the equivalent of the old-fashioned family doctor that gives you a more personal, intimate experience.
