Thanks SO MUCH
Julia Clemens from Newark

I feel so fortunate to have found such a great team - Dr. DeMarco is awesome, the desk staff and techs are great as well. For years, they took wonderful care of my cats who had to be put down for one reason or another. The sensitivity and empathy was amazing. Recently, I've been dealing with the trauma of my dog, Moses, having bite wounds from another dog. The follow up phone calls, sensitivity and concern for his well being has helped me immensely. The genuine support is priceless! Thank you all so much! Mo appreciates all the cookies!
