I was petsittig a dog while their owners were in Hawaii. I liked the Dr. ok, not great, but the Vet Tech's were wonderful. I asked the Receptionist if I could wait for the Dr. She replied she had two appointments and too busy so I should go home and couldn't sit and wait. I also called to see how the dog was doing and she told me we are too busy to inform me and the owner. I took the dog to SAGE and they call myself and the owner with no problems. Now that I know you don't need a referal to SAGE, I will go there.
Also, when i took my dog there last year I was told she had bone cancer by the referring Dr. The Dr. here didn't even look at the xray and confirmed that she did. Long story, she didn't.
