My wife and I found Dr. Goldman, 12-13 years ago, at Pet Smart and we knew right away he was a very special person. He took care of our dogs, african grey (who loved Dr.G calling him chicken boy), pot bellied pig, and desert tortoise for nearly 8 years. He was/is the best vet, in our thorough opinion. Now that my wife and I our living in Michigan, we've also had to give up Dr. Goldman. He created a bar so high we find ourselves comparing every vet to him. And, nobody compares to his care and knowledge of our kids/animals. We still debate whether we should start driving out once a year for everyones yearly checkup (He is that Special).
