  • Thank You

    -Beth E. from Alexandria, VA
    Pet Name: Francesca

    Francesca came upstairs to the lobby from her last stay in October, she was SMILING, and seemed so much more content than she did when staying at other facilities.

  • Thank You

    -Brenda Mitchell- Powell from Alexandria, VA
    Pet Name: Suzie

    I want to tell you how pleased I am with the services I've received at AAH. In September 2010, we moved to Alexandria full time (we're from CT, but had a second home here in town), and I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to find a veterinary hospital as wonderful as the one we left behind. Prior to moving, I did a lot of research to locate a new facility for Suzie and Elle (at the time, I still had two Maltese) and was thrilled when I found AAH. But your veterinary services and the warmth and professionalism of the office staff have exceeded my expectations. When Suzie had her recent medical crisis, I was deeply moved by the concern and empathy of your staff. Members of the front-desk staff phoned to check up on Suzie and we were always cordially and enthusiastically greeted upon our arrival. Dr. Chiang was exceptional! She was so kind and thoughtful during our conversations and appointments, and I especially appreciated her willingness to provide me with all the medical details of Suzie's case. I will be forever grateful to her for her compassion and expertise. Suzie and I are both fond of Dr. Galvan, too, and the surgery Dr. Krochak performed on Suzie's left eye resolved issues that had plagued my baby for quite some time.

    You and your staff are exceptional, and I'm thrilled to have found a facility that exceeds my expectations. Kudos to you all!

  • Thank you

    -J. Bludell from Arlington, VA
    Pet Name: Charlotte

    I called the hospital yesterday because I was so concerned about my dog Charlotte’s very sudden frequent urination as she has renal disease. In particular I would like to thank Tara who went out of her way to track down Dr. Krochak and arrange for me to pick up medication. I am not frantic and worried today because of the great service Tara provided to me yesterday. You can have the best vets in the world but without a knowledgeable and caring support staff it doesn’t matter.

  • To The Wonderful Staff
