  • "I am so thankful that Dr. Heron/Prichard and Dr. Lee are now practicing together at Cherokee Hills. They are both excellent Veterinarians and they have both worked in Emergency & Critical Care before. They have a convenient location right off NW Expressway and their technicians and office staff are kind, caring and always helpful. I highly recommend them for anyone that needs a veterinarian!!!"
  • "BEST VET CLINIC EVER!! We weren't originally planning to use this clinic - just needed to retrieve initial shot records there by our puppy's previous owner. But from that very first interaction, we could sense the care, professionalism and friendliness of Dr. Prichard and the entire staff. In addition to the puppy, we transferred the care of our other dog there and have had nothing but the BEST experience with every visit. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!"
