“I really appreciate Dr. Springer. He was so gentle with our cat during exams which is a comfort when you have to leave your pet for a procedure. I also really love his patience and willingness to answer all questions. At other clinics I've felt rushed or is was difficult to contact my vet later when I needed more information. Thanks Dr. Springer! — Nicole S”
