Dr. "Mike" is the no bones about it, perfect vet, in my opinion. He clearly states facts, options, provides warm compassionate advise and doesn't rob the pocketbook. He has provided excellent care to several of my cats and saved my black lab who was always into something and as we lived near the river had an encounter with eating a raw dead salmon. Dr. Ekerson pulled him back from the brink of death and I am forever grateful. Shame on me for letting my dog run out of sight. Lesson learned the hard way, but if it weren't for Dr. "Mike" I wouldn't have had my dog the next day. He was one sick puppy (for a 2 year old) when we went to the clinic.
