Feedback from our clients

  • "The entire staff here is AMAZING! I brought my dog all the way from Huntington Beach to be assessed for a stem cel trial for arthritis. Turned out he didn't qualify but was still very happy we made the trek. Dr. Bogan was so knowledgeable and patient; we ended up doing cold laser and acupuncture treatments. Bleu's bouncing around today like he's a puppy! We have 5 more sessions and will happily head there each week for these visits. Big thank you to Ty and Alec too!"
