I was previously a resident of Washington, DC and I used to bring my 14 year old Shih Tzu to Montgomery Village Animal Hospital (MVAH). The drive from the Chinatown area of DC to Gaithersburg would take me roughly 30-45 minutes, however, the service we received from the staff at MVAH, especially Dr. Meg Quickel, made the trip worth it. We had been a long-time client of Dr. Quickel – a testament to the quality care that she delivers with utmost professionalism. More importantly, I always felt that the care that Snowball received was the care that the staff would give to their own four-legged friend. Dr Quickel is very knowledgeable and empathetic and helped Snowball and I through some difficult times. Most recently, she was able to detect that Snowball was showing signs of degenerative disc disease.Thankfully, with her accurate diagnosis, we were able to bring Snowball to the appropriate Specialist for further help. If given the opportunity, I would absolutely recommend MVAH to family and friends.
