I've been taking my dogs to Dr. McGuire for well over a decade. Prior to finding her, I searched high and low for a vet that seemed to actually care about my animals. On the first visit with Dr. McGuire, she got down on the floor and let my dogs check her out and lick her. She?s the only vet I?ve ever gone to who has done something like that. Over the years, she's been respectful, kind and caring towards me and my dogs. In what I?ve experienced at other vets, the cost seems to be comparable. Since she and her staff have treated my dogs like they were their own, if it does actually cost me more to see her, I'm willing to pay it. She's never jumped to the most expensive treatment - always being conservative in treatment when it was safe for the animal to do so. Her staff have been helpful for the most part; obviously some more than others. When I had to take one of my dogs to after hours emergency care, they notified Dr. McGuire?s office and a staff member called me the first business day to see how my dog was doing. Yes, there is often a wait to see her. However, she TAKES HER TIME examining the animal, asking questions about the issues they may be having and answering any questions or addressing any concerns I have. Doing this with EVERY PATIENT she sees sets her behind. I?ve never felt that me or my animals were just numbers and dollar signs to her. I will say that I do NOT like the other vet who works there so I make sure it's Dr. McGuire I'm seeing when I make an appointment. My dogs are family members to me and she respects that relationship. Any confusion or issues that have arisen have been handled in a professional manner. I recommend her to everyone because I trust her completely.
