I have had wonderful experiences with Dr. Darnell and her office for both my own animals as well as animals I foster for a local rescue. I like that she takes time to pet my cat, talk to me, answer questions, offer advice. I love her standard of care, and how she simply explains things, and puts things into perspective whether or not she would do it to her own animals--and I absolutely trust her judgement. She doesn't use ridiculous and incomprehensible medical jargon, she advises, offers solutions and alternatives, she takes a real interest in each and every animal--and owner. You can't ask for better. So many practices have a front office staff that is easily confused and don't understand animal-speak, but even her front office staff is knowledgeable and helpful. If you're even considering using her, she is absolutely, hands down, worth checking out.
