"We started going to VIMA to see Dr. Chaitman seven years ago when our beloved wire fox terriers, Seymour and Gracie were, respectively, 12 and 10. Both Seymour and Gracie lived to be 16, thanks to Dr. Chaitmanís brilliant and compassionate care. We now have Tallulah, an eight year old wire fox terrier, and our latest addition to the family is Martin, a smooth fox terrier puppy. So, we have now had an opportunity to experience Dr. Chaitmanís great care for everyone from a puppy to two senior citizens and she is the very best veterinarian we have ever had and have recommended her to all out pet parent friends.
Dr. Chaitman is very, very smart and takes the time to examine her patients carefully, perform the required tests, diagnose, explain options and give advice, all in a relaxed, competent and very experienced way. She helps us understand what is wrong, what our choices are and what the best next steps are. She is like Marcus Welby for pets...kind, generous with her time and really, really caring about her patients more than her time or her fees. And, she brings the best of her Animal Medical Center training to the less institutional, more neighborhood, homey, caring environment of VIMA.
We trust Dr. Chaitman and her advice so much than when we travel, if any of our dogs has ever had a medical need while we are not home, she has our approval to do anything and everything she feels is necessary to take care of them...and we have been glad since there have been a couple of emergencies while we have been away and she handled all brilliantly.
We feel Dr. Chaitman truly loves animals and she cares for them with passion, commitment and as a true professional. Thatís why we would unequivocally recommend VIMA to anyone with a pet they love. We wish she treated people, too!"
