    Michelle A.
  • “LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Azalea Lakes. It was recommended to me by a friend and I've been a client/"family member" for the past 8ish years. They love their clients, their staff, and their animals. I live on the other side of town and I will happily make the drive to get there because of how they treat me and have treated all of my animals.”

    Cora B.
  • “Izzy is our new puppy. She loves doctor Gretchen! We've been taking the cats there for 15 years. Now we'll be taking the dog for 15 more. There is no other staff I would trust with my animal children.”

    Jamie S.
  • “They care about animals & owners, it is why they do everything they do & it shows!”

    Mike D.
  • “I love these doctors!! I wish I had known about them years ago. I have a very difficult 20 pound cat that was usually a terror at the vet but the first time I brought her in to Dr. Susie she was very calm and just lay there while Dr. Susie checked her out. I have a rescued Persian cat and a teacup poodle that have seen each of the doctors at Azalea and they love all of the ladies. The office staff is awesome, also. I would highly recommend Azalea Lakes to anyone.

    Carol C.
  • “Everyone at the clinic is so helpful! They care about the babies brought in and treat them that way! They understand that these "pets" are apart of your family and will give them the best care as if they were there own. I will never leave! Thank you for all of you wonderful experiences!”

    Shasta F.
  • “Caring, helpful and affordable! Brought my puppy to get treated for heart worms, neutered and had a great experience! They help to keep my puppy healthy! I will continue to use them in the future! Recommended Vet Clinic!”
