Stay Away

I have had very good experiences with this practice until recently. The more experienced vets seem to have left the practice, and it is very apparent that dollars are much more important to them now than appropriate treatment. The doctor we always saw retired. We visited for an ongoing eye issue that one of my diabtic dogs has experienced for the past year or so. The new doctor did the exact same treatment as the previous one; however, the charges were doubled (~$550). Then I was told that the treatment didn't work, and a different treatment was recommended that would cost $1200 and, if that didn't work, another treatment would be necessary that would cost in excess of that amount. Again, this problem was treated by the now retired vet for approximately $250. The excuse given was the difference in medication preferences by the new vet.

Stay away from this place if possible. Unfortunately, there is a real shortage of veterinary specialists in the Charlotte area, so it can be unavoidable. Just keep in mind that they are much more concerned about collecting money than they are with coming up with the most appropriate, economical treatment for your pet.
