Compassionate, and simply the best Vet in the Stanford area. The staff and Dr. Fonseca are all very compassionate. We lost a family member, and they were very respectful and compassionate. Dr. Fonseca sent a card and a dog charm that brought me to tears. I still have that charm, on my key chain. I can't say enough good things about this clinic and the entire staff. If there is any clinic you wish to invest in, this is the one!
