From the minute you get that reminder call to the minute you walk out of the appointment, the attention and care given is consistent - above par! Dr. Anderson and staff at VCA Rockville give us a sense of reassurance each time we visit that we picked the right people to care for our SinJin! How often does a pet actually get excited walking through a vet's doors - ours do! He never wants to leave. Everyone takes the time to show how much they care about our family addition.
