Her goal is exceptional pet care and proper education of pet mom and dads. She if definitely a great find and amongst one of the best Vets in the Poughkeepsie area.
Creature Comforts Animal Hospital is definitely conveniently located. It is right off of Route 9 and they have a large parking lot. They have a great feature of a double door entrance. This is handy if pets get off their leash or get loose from their carriers. There is another door barrier, before they would be able to get outside and potentially lost. The waiting room is very inviting with pictures and their chairs are comfortable. They play a low decent music that is better than your average elevator music. They have a few product displays behind the reception desk where you can find foods, treats and dental products. The waiting room is very clean and it smells very nice. This is refreshing from walking into other clinics, that remind you that you are in an animal hospital. The exam rooms are very warm. They have nice chairs and are very clean. Each room has great funny photos of animals in it. They all appear to be nicely equipped with everything the doctor may need because she never has to leave the room to get anything.
The staff of Creature Comforts are all very friendly. They appear to be a small group. All of the ladies are very friendly and are all extremely knowledgeable. Many of them have exotic animals of their own, which is great because if you cant talk with the doctor right away, they have a lot of great advice. The staff all have a smile on their face and they all will go out of the way to help you.
Creature Comforts is VERY affordable. Many owners worry about "breaking the bank", but definitely not a worry here. They are extremely reasonable with prices and you do not feel that they are gouging you when it's time for check out.
