My pet got sick on a Saturday. I called the vet clinic and left a message. Within a short period of time Dr. Joyner returned my call. After describing my concerns, he asked me to bring my pet in. We got there after 1:30 P.M. The clinic closed at noon on Saturdays but Dr. Joyner waited for us. He examined my puppy thoroughly and treated her. As of this writing, she is back to health. I will definitely recommend East Lake Veterinary Clinic to anybody who considers pets as family members. The fact that Dr. Joyner was willing to stay after hours on a Saturday afternoon says a lot. In my book, that means you can count on them.
