Toby's first visit and follow up visits
Patrick and Robyn from Tracy

We brought our Yorkie, Toby into the office for his first physical. Before the appt was made, I called and discussed the type of exam that would be given and what was included. The staff answered all my questions and we brought Toby in.
As a nurse, I know what types of exams are done on people and was curious to see how the exam was done and how thorough it would be.
Dr. Machicao was very thorough with the exam and explained what she was checking for from ears to his paws.
She educated me on puppy care since he was being treated for kennel cough when we adopted him. I was happy that the clinic was concerned for the other dogs and placed us in a different area of the clinic so Toby wouldn't give his kennel cough to another dog.
Dr. Machicao gave her recommendations concerning Toby's health and possible congenital eye issue.
I have since spoke with staff, Pat and Sylvia (and others, but don't recall their names) and they are professional, caring and returned my calls after consulting with Dr. Machicao.
I would recommend this clinic and Vet for others who want great communication and care for their family pet.
