Some of our patients

We have used Dr. DiGiacomo’s extraordinary veterinary services for years for several of our furry family members. She has a wonderful bedside manner with her patients and makes us feel at ease especially with animals that may have been suffering longer term illnesses. With a multiple pet household, she always makes it simple and easy for us and more importantly, offers different options in terms of care and treatment.

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.
