Shout Out

“"I have had wonderful experiences with the U of M Hospitals Emergency Room for my own care and of my father's care, and I have to say that AERC was every bit as wonderful--kept us with our little girl as much as possible, beautiful private emergency room for us with her. Every consideration was employed to make all of us feel welcome and valued. Zoey got treated like the tiny, sensitive, smart girl she is. We were worried about her eye that she kept shut that morning, and they made sure there were no scratches on the cornea. The intake staff was considerate and let us fill out the forms in the private exam room, offered coffee, checked Zoey's heart. The medical care by the vet and the follow up by staff with instructions was outstanding. The facility is the nicest I have seen. Every bit as nice as the ones at the U of M for human patients. I would sum up my overall impression of the clinic staff: Friendly, Considerate, Respectful, Sensitive, Outstanding Communication and Care. I would rate the staff communication higher than staff at U of MN for human patients because it was consistently outstanding." ”
