Thank you Cal Oaks
Binky from Murrieta

Dear Dr Wentzel,
I just wanted to thank you again for all the wonderful care you have given our Ginger these past 10 years, and before her, our first Ginger. I was so lucky to find your office 17 years ago when we first moved to Murrieta and needed a vet. You and your staff are extremely professional, warm, well-trained and somehow they each know every patient and parent by NAME! That is truly amazing. I want to thank you, especially, for your creative thinking about Ginger's "attacks" that no one could figure out. You watch her PH, as I recall, changed her food, and she hasn't had an attack since. I feel that everyone is like family there, they are all so concerned with Ginger's comfort, and a proper outcome for each problem as they arise. As far as staff, I have known Carrie for all these years and am so glad you chose her to be Hospital Manager - she has always been outstanding. Your reception people are so great, I look forward to seeing Melanie and Jen whenever I come in, even if it is just to buy pet food or medicine. They are so patient on the phone, and try never to keep people waiting - that takes talent! Melanie, Delaney, Vicki, Devon, Ashley, Tanya, Melissa, Megan, Diana, and Jamie - (have I missed anyone?) are so experienced in animal care, and so kind, too. They are wonderful representatives of your hospital. I haven't met Dr Yale yet, but I am sure I will feel just as comfortable with her. I am grateful you have Steve and Zak caring for Ginger's teeth, and without anesthetic. They take their time with her and her teeth are perfect. I also enjoy you Open House parties with the tour of your office, plus drawings, prizes and gifts for your patients and their families. I have sent all my friends with pets to your office, and none of you have ever let me, or them, down. You have equipment to handle my problems, as needed, and you let me know when Gingie needs a shot or exam. You think of everything! Thanks again, all of you, for taking such great care of our baby!
