I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Charlie Duffy and his practice. I have been bringing my Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs to Dr. Duffy since 2006, when I brought my first dog to him for Penn Hip x-rays (he's one of the few vets who does PennHip in CT). Dr. Duffy is great with pets and people alike, fantastic bedside manner, and he truly does listen to his clients. What I really appreciate about him and his practice in this day and age, is that they don't just try to force unnecessary tests just to pad the invoice. VERY different from all the corporately-owned and controlled veterinary practices who have been bought up, or are part of the mega chains. Dr. Duffy owns his practice, and has no one to answer to but himself and especially, his CLIENTS! He is extremely knowledgeable about orthopedic issues, he's a great surgeon, and after 35+ years of owning multiple dogs, he's simply put the best vet I've ever worked with.
