We just changed our vet(loved our old vet just too far to drive), and I have so far been there 3 times. We really like his beliefs of not over vacinating and medicating. He geniunely is an animal lover(which you can't imagine how many vets out there are not). If you are trying to get a check up call 2 to 3 weeks ahead. I think he has everyone's business in the area. He is easy to talk to and uses simpicity when speaking to you. The entire staff is wonderful and friendly. If you are looking for a new vet check out Dr. Bongers first.
