Dr. Dennis Macchia is a wonderful vet who has been in business for decades. We've had 3 dogs (so far) parade through his practice for preventative vetcare, as well as overnight surgical procedures. He's terrific! However, If you're looking for sugar coated answers, walls decorated with useless pet product advertisement, or a hand holding psyche session on the day you put your dog down,...then don't go here! This vet has a straight forward, no nonsense, back to basics approach to vet care; which may seem a bit ""dry"" to some people. Dr. Macchia is an honest, caring and dedicated professional, who runs his ""family"" veterinary practice with your pets' best interest at heart.
