I visited this clinic for the first time today to take in my pet rat, hearing that the clinic/doctor was very good at rodent care and diagnosis. I was able to get a very quick appointment the same day I called (which was amazing because the clinic seemed decently busy for the time I was there). The reception was quite friendly, and Dr. Burstyn was very caring and extremely knowledgeable. He also offered a broad range of treatment options for my rat and her potential ear infection, and the whole time I felt like my rat was in great hands. I would recommend this medical clinic to any pet owner, and silly as it may seem, I’d probably trust these people more with my own health than my family doctor!
