Amazing. I appreciate her honesty. She answered all my questions. She took her time with us and Oreo. We didn't feel rushed at all. And Dr. King's receptionist Erin is beyond nice. She was caring and see answered all of our questions too. Both Dr. King and Erin never once made us feel rushed. We highly recommend anyone with fur babies to go to Dr. King. **they are very reasonably priced. Thank you Dr. Brenda King and all her staff.

It’s annoying how now everyone isn’t taking new patients. What’s the point of opening a vet place if you’re not open for everyone? Finding a good quality vet for my dog has become the hardest thing because of stuff like this.

Dr. King is the best. I would not want to take my animals elsewhere. My entire family has used her. I first met her in 1994 with my kitty Gilbert. He LOVED HER!!!

Don’t bother. She’s so “elite” she doesn’t take new clients.

Not accepting new clients, didn't even ask us what the problem was :(

Dr. King is an excellent vet. She genuinely cares, putting forth the extra effort to calm a nervous pup patiently. Her practical suggestions and treatment are a testimony to her vast knowledge and experience. I wish I had known about her sooner! I highly recommend her and her staff.

My mom has always used Dr. King, so naturally I decided to use her when I got 2 cats of my own. She is extremely knowledgeable and cares for the well being of the animals. I trust her 100% taking care of my babies. Would highly recommend.

Dr. King knows her stuff. She patiently listens and then applies her expertise, carefully explaining everything. Staff members are equally professional.

Super friendly as well as to the point. Dr. King and the staff always provid great care for our dog and she feels very comfortable with them. Thry respond quickly to our questions by phone or email. Practice safe distancing.

Months ago, while examining my dog, Dr. King became verbally aggressive with me. I do not remember the content of the discussion that was being had, but because of her tone and her elevated voice level, my dog, a dog that had been going to her from the time he was a few months old, began growling. I believe she made the determination at that very moment that she was no longer going to see my dog. While that is perfectly fine because I do not believe that any Vet should put themselves in a position to feel threatened or in harms way, she could have communicated that at that moment. On top of charging me an amount I wasn’t used to for that visit (an amount that was clearly elevated), my attempts to schedule a new appointment for him were ignored for two months before she finally told me she did not wish to see him anymore. There must’ve been a note in the system attached to my dog’s name, because the attitude she gave when she took the call made it evident that there was a problem. Then she inquired about what his issue was as if she was concerned, only to tell me she’s not seeing him anymore. Again, I would never want a Vet to be uncomfortable working with any dog, but I’ve been trying to schedule my dog any appointment for months and was being put off by being told someone would give me a call back, that his appointment that was scheduled had to be rescheduled because the doctor was not going to be in, when all along she knew she wasn’t going to see him anymore. That to me was a lack of good customer service and a lack of care for my animal who clearly needed medical attention. If she had told me this months ago, I would’ve been found another Vet.

I’ve been seeing Dr. King for 20 years. She saved my dog’s life years ago after she got hit by a car. Dr. King (and her great staff) has seen all of my animals since then and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with them!

We have tried other vets before finding Dr. King. She is clearly the best in the area. She is an expert diagnostician and has great insights into canine behavior. Dr King and her staff are also efficient and very caring in emergency situations.

Had my dog's teeth more bad breath. A technician said they ran into some sort of problems during procedure and unable to complete surgery. I didn't know a new Vet did the procedure whom I've never met or spoken too. I thought she should have spoken to me afterwards to let me know what happened since dental procedure was not completed. Unable to remove an infected molar and was told to watch it??? Not happy about that after having paid close to $1000 for checkup, physical, blood work and procedure. Was given antibiotics and pain medication and my dog seemed to be alright in a few days. Reason I took my dog there is because Dr. King who is great w/him & knowledgeable knows my dog. New vet doesn't know how my dog who is 15 years old would react to anesthesia because she has never seen or treated my dog before. I was not told, but I noticed new vet's name on bill. Thank goodness everything turned out alright.

Dr. King was recommended to me by a coworker, and she's terrific. Loves our cats and they love her. She's no nonsense about their health, but loving and patient with their care. Her team has helped make every visit friendly, efficient, and reassuring. Please don't retire ever!

Our dog Juno adores Dr. King and her staff, and she has received excellent care since we first adopted her and brought her to the office in 2016. Dr. King counseled us through Juno’s food sensitivities (and recommended a limited ingredient dog food that has worked great), and her advice is always clear, compassionate and genuine. Anytime we’ve had to schedule an appointment the staff makes every effort to fit us in ASAP and we have never had to wait long. We trust Dr. King completely.

I came to Dr. King for a second opinion because my prior vet was pushing me to get surgery for my dog. Dr. King provided us with an alternative treatment (casting him) for a period of time and that worked. I've been here with my pets ever since. Both Dr King and her office staff are tremendously caring and helpful. They've gone above and beyond for me and my family!

This is a an office with great staff I am pretty sure that two or three of Dr. King's girls have been there longer than We have been patients. Very clean, organized front desk and examination rooms. Short wait times. Fair. Thorough. I 100 percent trust them with my pets. Cute bulletin boards too!

Dr. King is an average vet, she cares for your pet and is well informed, but so are many other Vets in the area. She recently reminded me as to why I left her years ago when I had my other dog. I bought all three of my pets all very young which means that I would be seeing her for years to come. My biggest issue is her client relationship, perhaps she doesn't realize that its the owners that pays her and not the animals. I will spend any amount of money to care for my babies, but in principle I feel she takes advantage of that fact. Today we have options and karma is a funny thing.

I am impressed by their dedication. My husband and I have busy schedules and work in the city. They have left our pets' prescriptions in a safe place so that we could pick them up when the office was closed. We are out of town and they shipped medication to our vacation home for the 4th of July holiday which is what prompted me to write this. Excellent care and they go above and beyond their calling! Thank you Doctor King and her lovely staff.

Changing from another local vet to Dr. King after our first appointment with her. She was very helpful in answering questions about managing my elderly dogs' chronic problems and in addressing the current crisis. I also spent about half of what I usually spend at the other local vet. She spent more time examining my dogs and did not need any lab tests.

This is where Traveler went for vet visit and this is where I last took him for his final vet visit, he was very old and very sick in horrible pain and had to be put down. It was horrible but Dr. King is always great she made it a lot easier for me. Even when I take Maggie and have to muzzle her, she's great with her and we're talking about a full size traumatized German Shepard that's aggressive at times, but Dr. King still years her like a baby.
