Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

    My little frenchie has been having some tummy problems. Dr. Friedman and his staff took the time to explain things to us and were very loving to Gus. Thank you!

    L. B. / Facebook Review

    Dr. Friedman is so good with my cat Lucy. She has three legs and Dr. Friedman always makes sure she is aging appropriately and healthily. She gets a little nervous going to see him but immediately calms down once he starts talking to her and petting her. The office is always clean and the staff is professional and kind.
