  • "We were very pleased with Dr Cromal and pleasantly surprised."
    - Joe B.
  • "Everyone in my community knows that they are the absolute best in the field. They would never suggest that I buy something that wasn't necessary, and never pressured me. They were always very considerate and professional. They're almost always able to answer my questions over the phone. It's so nice not having to drive down there for an appointment every time I want an answer to my question. Their primary concern is my safety and comfort, and they always take the time to address every concern of mine immediately. Their staff was so warm and welcoming, and made me and my pet feel right at home."
    - June Wood
