A number of friends have quit using this clinic after life-compromising misdiagnoses. Given the difficulties of veterinary medicine, mistakes are unavoidable. That said, a steady stream of anecdotes eventually becomes data-- highly suggestive that you find another vet. In general I would say that Dr. Vladi DE Jong is a bit low on information and tends to shoot from the hip rather than confess ignorance. There is one benefit to the practice, if your pet is seriously ill and needs care, it is unlikely that you will be seen in a week or more thus saving the life your animal as you visit a vet outside of the 'hood.' If you can look beyond the plate tectonic scheduling, clinical malfeasance, and lack of equipment (like a veterinary scale), you will find Dr. DE Jong confident, at times charming, and always knowledgeable even when he is not.
Cons: Everything else
