Testimonial

Dear Dr. Folger, Dr. Pittari, Dr. Addleman, and the entire MCH awesome staff.

You are all amazing! We are so thankful we found you for our dear felines. The front staff is always kind and patient - never making us feel like we are annoying them (even though, we know we must). The Techs/Assistants know how to calm our cats down! The Doctors are the best there is! We know that when we need care, even though each doctor has their own style, our babies will not only be cared for well medically, but treated with respect! We love each Doctor for seeing us through the passing of two babies and now helping with the health of our five friends. What regular MD calls your home to check on a patient? That never ceases to amaze us about you. You genuinely care about them and us. Thank you over and over again.

Love,

Kerby, KayKay, Karl, Marty, and Moe too!
