Amazing Skills and Staff
Lisa from Alexandria

Last year when our puppy broke a bone in her knee, Dr. Jackson worked with us to find a reasonable solution in the middle of the holiday season, even though we were totally unknown to him and his staff. While most vets have to refer patients to specialists for the type of surgery she required, he has the expertise to perform the surgery himself. She was treated very well, appeared to be comfortable and not in pain (while not being drugged and drowsy from painkillers either), and has recovered with no problems whatsoever. It is as if she never had an injury. Dr. Jackson is a genius! Really, this dog is "like new." Also, when I arrived at the clinic the day of her injury extremely upset, the staff at Dr. Jackson's office were absolutely amazing - just the nicest people. They helped me get the puppy out of the car and carried her in, they got me coffee, they talked with me...I wish my own doctor's office was so accommodating! Anyway, long story short, I will never go to another vet for our pets, unless we move out of the area.
