No nonsense, good veterinary care. We've been going to him for over 20 years (dogs). He is down to earth, nothing flashy or fancy, just good care. Does not presure or oversell services or tests. Willingness to work with other veterinary services/practices. We also use a rehab (chiro & accupuncture) vet as well as a holstic (chinese herbs) vet and keep Dale in the loop and he is willing to work as a team.
