Amazing vet, will be coming back.10/11/2016
Really great experience. Got there and they took us and our cat straight to an exam room which doubles up as your waiting room. It was cat only and they had feliway wall plugs so our cat stayed calm. Doctor was very thorough in her explanations and works to keep expenses to a minimum. She self described herself as a minimalist, avoiding unnecessary testing. She showed us how to cut our cats nails, take her temperature, and administer the antibiotics for her upper respiratory infection. After the appointment, they print and email a copy of the notes from the entire appointment for your records. They next day, they called to check up on our cat and how she was doing. Highly recommend and will be continuing to use them as our vet.

They have always been there for me11/25/2012
Excellent care and great hours. They are all pet lovers. I feel confident in the quality of care my Rottweiler receives. I appreciate that they can see my dog during an emergency and offer a full array of services.

Best Interest11/16/2010
The Drake Center has your pet's best interest at heart. Incredible service and comunication. They are pushy with over servicing though. For example, Our puppy was sick and they began the first test and before they recieved the results (which was only going to be a few hours) they urged us to begin three other tests. The first test came back positive (Unfortunately). They were considerate and called us to learn of our puppoes condition even after they knew they would not be performing the treatment. We have taken her their ever since. They are costly initially but after first year puppy all the other visits seem to reflect the industry standards.

Best of the Best8/24/2010
The vets, vet techs and receptionists are all incredibly nice, knowledgeable and helpful. With appointments there is no waiting at all. The care is impeccable. Best of all they try their best to reassure overly nervous Moms. (meaning me) I have recommend them many times to friends.
