Comments: Dr. Gray is very sharp, and strives to keep her medical knowledge up to date. She is compassionate and gentle. She is not afraid to run tests 'on a hunch', and in our case her 'hunch' was correct. (thank God!) She understands that these are not just *animals*, but our 'kids', taking the time to explain things and reassure us concerning our furbabies. We trust her completely.
