One of our feline patients

Dr. DiGiacomo has treated our fur-kids (2 cats) for over 5 years. She is a brilliant, compassionate and kind veterinarian. She has helped us through various ailments and stages with our animals. Dr.DiGiacomo is a veterinarian who listens to our concerns, personalizes treatment and gives us professional advice like it’s coming from a friend. Her presence is warm and welcoming. She goes above and beyond because she genuinely cares. I know my animals are receiving the best care with Dr. DiGiacomo.

Ruthie is one of our patients

I couldn’t be happier with the care with which Dr. DiGiacomo has been providing my animals since 2010. She always takes as much time as is necessary to make sure they are comfortable during the exam and to answer my questions about their health. She is thorough, thoughtful, patient and, most of all, incredibly knowledgeable. Dr. DiGiacomo is a superb veterinarian, and I recommend her without hesitation.

Don’t Call Me Olivia!

*Update* Oliver has officially been adopted! See the comments at the bottom of this blog for more on his happy ending.   This story has a happy ending, but a not-so-pleasant beginning.
