Does anyone go there? I can't find any ratings. Everytime I go there, I go right in with no waiting. I like the vet. He's very friendly, not pushy, and I can understand what he says. I'm just concerned because I don't see a lot of pet owners. When I call to make an appointment, he says come in right now.

He seemed "nice" when I went in to drop off a resume. But, like you say, he doesn't have much of a client base. He also has no "qualified" staff working for him. It is him and his wife. (at least he didn't a year ago. I haven't seen an ad from him so I assume he hasn't hired).

How does that work if he needs to do a surgery, or even just for general appointments, lab work, etc. That would put me off from going to him itself!

I know a couple rescue groups who use this vet and really like him.  Very friendly, the clinic is clean and quit, although I too noticed no additional support staff when I stopped in to drop something off a few months back.

His wife does the job a vet assistant would do and some things a tech would do. For a lot of stuff he just does himself. There is no law that states a school taught tech or vet must preform certain procedures. For simple lab work, like reading a fecal, I often had co-op students doing them but, I always double checked them until I was 100% sure they would not miss anything. (and I'm not sure that ever happened lol with a co-op. A tech student yes, never a HS co-op). I'm not sure what equipment he has for surgical monitoring. He may rely on monitoring equipment with his wife as a back up. I was, for the most part, the equipment in clinics I worked at. I never totally relied on machines even when I had them though.

Really, a lay person could be taught to do 90% of my job as a nurse, with on the job training, and be as efficient!

I just don't like that he doesn't have help. It's a personal preference of mine!
