Mona Popkin from Staten Island

The most caring staff and the most caring doctors. My pet Spike has a blood disorder called AIT, he is only four years old and it already has returned for a second time. Needless to say I was a mess the first time around but because of their knowledge and patience and willing to give the family the information they need to learn I feel I am more prepared this time around and a lot calmer. I will be forever grateful to Mary Grace for always being there for me early in the a.m. and always knowing what to say. I will always be grateful for Doctor Clemente's expertise and never giving up on Spike. There should be more animal care service like South Shore. Sincerely, Mona Popkin.
