I took my Daisy over to the vet this morning. (McCrumbs). I had an extremely long wait time, for having the first time slot of the day. My appt was for 8:30, and I didn't see a vet until 9:40. That's a long wait. It appeared that only one vet was working today. The waiting room only had 2 other people in it, so I'm not sure what the hold up was. So when he finally came in the exam room(20 minutes after I had been sitting in there), I sort of jokingly said "Whew, I thought you guys forgot about me!" No smile, no "sorry, I know, we're so busy today", Nadda. Wow.
Anyway.....this is the second time I have seen the new guy they hired, and I must say, I don't care for him at all. He has the bedside manner of a clod. And I also find him arrogant and aloof. A far cry from Ken and Cindy. I feel bad for them, having someone like this new person working for him. I am not impressed, and kind of feel that he brings down their good reputation by association!
So, he looked at Daisy's ears, which is why I went in. Gave her a shot of cortisone for itching and swelling and prescribed anti-biotics. When I asked what he thought it was, he kind shrugged his shoulders and said "dermatitis". Oh, ok.
So, yeah, overall, not impressed with this new guy. Next time I call for an appt, I will be specifying that my dogs see Cindy or Ken. And another thing...he doesn't even greet the dog. Or pet it. That seems really cold to me. Cindy and Ken treat my dogs like their own pets each and every time. I mean, he doesn't have to fawn over them but at least give the dog a little pet! She's sitting there shaking and he's Mr. Let's Get Down To Business. Grr.
Has anyone else seen him yet?
