They are friendly, caring and give thorough exams.Ramona Z.Ramona Z. ★★★★★ If there were more than 5 Stars to rate the doctors and staff at this clinic, they certainly would deserve them. When our cat needed attention and our (now former) Vet clinic was closed, Dr. Baitman agreed to see us. He stayed long past their closing time examining our cat, and discussing his condition with us. We've met most, perhaps all, of the staff at subsequent appointments, and give high marks to everyone for being caring and compassionate professionals, not only to our cat but to us. Even on the most frigid days they come to our car and take whatever time is necessary to discuss lab results and treatments, and have never recommended unnecessary tests.DAVID K.DAVID K. ★★★★★ Everyone is very kind & friendly & actually care about your pet!!!m k (.m k (. ★★★★★ Dr Baitman and staff are amazing! They are always friendly and Dr is very thorough. Thank you for taking care of my fur babies!Christina Q.Christina Q. ★★★★★ Roxy the Pomeranian needed emergency surgery due to swallowing a round plastic drawstring toggle. Dr Baitman was able to do the ultrasound himself and identify the issue, did the surgery and saw to Roxy's post operative care. His practice was already doing no contact service early in the pandemic. My wife sent him pictures of the sutures every day for a few days, and he was very responsive. He has a lot of emergency practice experience, great communication and was a great doctor for Roxy. We just started taking our other dogs here for vaccinations too.Andre C.Andre C. ★★★★☆ I have been looking for a new vet since we moved to the area almost 3 years. I needed an affordable, kind, and caring vet. We’ve tried 3 different once’s before finally trying ACC of Pingree. The staff is nice and the doc was super knowledgeable and kind. They are not pushy at all but make sure you have all the info you need to make a decision with your pet’s health! Would recommend 🙂MelisaMelisa ★★★★☆ Good service knowledgeable medical staff.R D.R D.js_loader
