What some of our clients are saying:
When my year old pup first started limping, I thought nothing of it, assuming that with time she would recover on her own. But after a few months, I knew that something wasn't right. Our regular vet referred us to Dr. Munjar to have her shoulder checked out.
The front desk staff were quick to get us in and so kind. Dr. Munjar examined her and her x-rays and gave us a few options - allowing us to go with the least invasive route to start. He was patient and thorough with all of my questions about her pain med prescriptions and the level of rest she would need.
In the end, the procedure went perfectly and by following his instructions (which weren't always easy with such a high-energy breed) she was able to make a full recovery with just one cortisol shot and a lot of down time.
If she were ever to be injured again, I would not hesitate to bring her back to Dr. Munjar for care. He is kind, gentle and communicates openly and clearly about the medical problems and all of the potential solutions.
The wait times are long, but the service is wonderful. I've come in twice (with appointments) and ended up sitting in an exam room waiting to be seen at least 30 minutes each time. However, the attention from the front desk person, the vet tech and the examination I received from Dr. Lauer was very thorough and done with care.
I came here for a second opinion on a surgical consult and boy, am I glad I did. Not only did Dr. Lauer conduct a very thorough examination of my dog, she did not immediately jump to a recommendation for a costly surgery like the first vet I saw. Her diagnosis was actually quite different from the first diagnosis, but I trust her judgment since she took the time to really examine my dog and his whole body. I highly recommend this place!
We highly recommend Dr Munjar and the team at VSCP. Dr Munjar was friendly, compassionate and took plenty of time with us. The rest of the office staff (Melissa at the front desk) were above average also.
Our Shiba Inu had bilateral patellar luxation corrected 9 months ago and is doing great.
No hesitations recommending this clinic. If you do want a second option, we have a friend who speaks highly of Cascade Clinic and Dr. Howard also.
