Dr. Jorgenson
Chris D. from Vernon Hills

Dr. Jorgenson is the standard by which all vets should be evaluated. His experience, gentle patience and humor are exactly what I want for the care of my dogs. The younger doctors would do well to remember that owners know their pets better than the doctor, and by listening to my observations Dr. J. is able to give us the best treatment every time. He has not given me bad advice in the 20+ years I have brought my pets to Hawthorn Animal Hosp. Now that he has fewer working hours I will change my schedule to match his if necessary. I do not trust my dogs to anyone else.
