    Dr Pearson and his staff are amazing. He has taken care of our pets for years and is always so compassionate. Our cat had cancer and he was so thorough and knowledgeable. He included us in the decision making process. His clinical knowledge was very impressive. I expected a large bill and pleasantly discovered that his prices were very reasonable. What an awesome clinic!
