    I would absolutely recommend Briarwood. Dr Joe and Dr Amy are so kind and caring. They answer all your questions and will give you all the time needed to treat your pet and make them feel comfortable. The entire staff treats you like family. I've been going there for over 20 years and wouldn't think about going anywhere else.

    Lynne Parth, Facebook

    We have been bringing all of our fur babies to Briarwood for years. Most recently, I brought my 20 year old 'kitten' for a wellness check. Dr. Amy was so gentle with my cat and even took the time to do the simple things like running the sink water for him to drink from (his FAVORITE activity). She spent quality time explaining everything to me and answered all of my questions. She truly treated my 'baby' as if he were her own. I am so grateful to have found such a wonderful and caring veterinarian who genuinely loves for every animal in her care

    Aubrey Forsythe, Facebook

    This is the only place I take my animal family members!!!! The care and passion that they have given my Danes is indescribable. I would not trust anyone else with their care.
