Going on to the vet techs...LOVE them. Seriously, by the time the doctor sees the dog, it’s a no brainer. The doctor has the easy job. All kidding aside, the expertise by everyone was a very good experience.

I am so glad we were referred to Live Oak! I used to go to the Florida Veterinary League and although they were very nice, we kept getting different, unfamiliar Doctors. The last one was extremely young and not very experienced. Both Dr Stewart and Dr Torrado are very compassionate , as is the staff.

Dr Stewart was fantastic. We wanted the dogs teeth manually cleaned as a touch up to a major cleaning 8 months ago. The dogs had no issues and Dr Stewart gave us a "brush up" lesson on brushing our dogs teeth. It was much easier than I imagined and I am going to keep it up.

Everyone is so nice and Indie loved all the pets and attention, despite all the needles. She gets very ancy away from home, but with the right atmosphere, it makes my life easier. I love that the appts are timed appropriately and there usually aren’t other animals waiting or much of a wait at all for us. Dr. Stewart was thorough and I didn’t feel rushed. Indie has never reacted so well to a tech with a thermometer. Happy I found a vet that works for both of us.

On Friday 12/28 my husband and I went in to put our 12-year-old German Shepherd down. We knew it was time but that didn't make it easier. We were first greeted by Michelle who was very sympathetic and understanding. Dr Torrado and the rest of his team were just as great as Michelle. We were allowed all the time we wanted to say good bye and we were able to hold him as he went to sleep. As awful as it was to put our dog down, the staff of Live Oak helped make it a little less painful. Thank you a

Dr Torrado once again gave us excellent service. We brought our 10 year old dog in because she was limping and seemed stiff when she got up. He thoroughly examined her flexing every joint. He identified arthritis in 3 areas and prescribed medication to try. We immediately saw an improvement. We’ve used other vets in the past and I have no doubt they would have spent much less time, ordered expensive tests and not had the results we saw. We love Dr Torrado

Dr. Stewart has cared for 6 dogs of mine over the years. I have been coming to Live Oak for about 27 years. Guess that says it all.

My dog is extremely shy, yet she was not really uncomfortable with the staff. That was a major plus for me. Everyone was very informative and patient with my calls to check on my dog’s status.

All the staff was very nice. Our shy dog was treated well by all who took part in the appointment. The people were very knowledgeable and did a great job of relaying the information to me and my daughter in an understandable way. It was a great first appointment. Feel good about our new edition, Willow, being cared for by you guys. Thank you for your wisdom and support.
