I needed compassion. I got a giant bill.
I had visited Parkview and Dr. Cynthia Nichols for shots for my dog and an occasional checkup. The office was always very busy, but the vet seemed interested and answered my questions. But, when my dog was hit by a car and I rushed him in, I ended up with a gigantic bill for all kinds of services I don't think he needed. The good news is that he just had a broken leg, and it did heal. I originally thought he was hurt much worse. However, all kinds of fees -- for emergency services, special drugs, operating room expenses -- were added in. I've been taking my animals to vets for years, and I never saw anything like this.
