I just became aware of this site, and after reading the three negative reviews, it is hard for me to believe they are talking about the same veterinarian that I have known and used for the past four years.
Dr. Darnell discovered a very small, but very deadly, tumor in my dog during his yearly physical, and the physical she performed was anything but superficial. If she had not discovered the small growth, removed it, suggested a biopsy and recommended specialists to continue treatment, my dog would not be alive today.
Now, two years later, she correctly diagnosed a unique, venomous bite which was later confirmed by biopsy and additional tests.
I have never had anything but a positive experience with Dr. Darnell, and since I'm one of those radical individuals who consider his dog a son rather than a pet, I would never take him to someone I did not trust.
Lastly, I have never had anything but excellent service from the staff. They have always treated me professionally, answered any questions in detail and with patience, and I believe they truly care about my dog.
Personally, I believe Dr. Darnell and her staff are excellent.
Hopefully, anyone reading this site will objectively evaluate the few negative comments in light of the significant number of very positive comments.
