  • "My cat is notoriously difficult to handle, so I was very nervous about bringing him in. But Dr. Roe and Rachel, one of her technicians, were so calm with him that he calmed right down! They were so gentle and steady when performing his tests and treatments that he allowed them to do everything. Their prices were extremely reasonable and Dr. Roe explained everything to me very clearly. She also worked with me to achieve the most care for my budget. Phoenix Veterinary Center has won my heart and the trust of my cat. I highly recommend that everyone gives them a try!"
