  • "Dr. Presnell took so much time answering all of our questions about our new puppy. He really made us feel like a priority and that our little Finn is in great hands under his care. He even saw us immediately without an appointment when we were worried our pup had broken his leg after a bad fall. In addition, all the receptionists and technicians are so friendly and caring, it really makes going to the vet an enjoyable process. Not to mention, the prices are very reasonable."
