I have been taking my dogs to Dr. Martin-Bennington for years. She examines my dogs thoroughly and talks with me about all of my concerns. If extra tests or procedures need to be done, they give me an estimate and leave the decision making up to me unless it is an emergency, I have the time to decide on what to do. I have never been forced to have anything done to my dogs without my knowledge and permission. I would never want to take my dogs to anyone else. The receptionists and staff are very nice.
