“Dr. James rocked and I cannot remember her assistant that day (long brown hair, freckles, has a bunch of animals at home herself) - she was the best assistant I have ever had in the 16 years we have been going to Long. She was personable, caring, good with the dog and you could just tell she loved her job.—Lesley F.”
