    .

    I have not personally ever been to this vet and have never taken my pet there for any procedures. However, like a previous poster, I did call to get some information on the vet and to find out how much it cost to get a dog neutered. I am new to the area and have been doing computer research and calling vets for half a day. When I called this vet, I was transferred to a person named Lois who said that they could not quote the surgery until they had met the dog and done an examination (which is $40). I said fine, did not even argue, but Lois continued on to say that their facility is not about price and is about quality of care and how I shouldn't choose a vet based on price and that if I were to do that then I shouldn't bring my dog to their facility. I explained that I was doing preliminary research and already weeded some vets out based on reviews and referrals and that I have cared for my dog for over 3 years and have given him excellent care. She continued to lecture me about asking for price quotes and how, at their vet, they value their relationships with their patients; I told her that belittling people and talking down to them does not promote a "good relationship." The conversation was very upsetting ot me because I take my responsibilities as a pet parent very seriously and have never sacrificed care for cost. I have never gone to the cheapest vet because the cheapest vet is not usually the best. But, the most expensive, arrogant vet is not always the best either. The sad thing is that I would have been willing to pay a little more for the procedure if this were the best vet. I would have had no problem with waiting until after the initial exam to find out the cost of surgery. I am exactly the kind of pet parent that vet likes to work with. But, she didn't let me say hardly anything before launching into her tirade, before asuming I was some sort of bad pet parent. I will not be taking my baby there because people who are that arrogant most often can't think critically about their work. Also, if you cannot respect enough as a pet parent to not talk to me like I'm a rotten child after only speaking with me on the phone for 2 minutes, then the relationship is already broken.
