I Second that nomination of Dr.Christine Matz, DVM on Cornwall Ave, Cheshire. Dr. Matz truly is compassionate to her patients and their families AND passionate about her career. She does make house calls! She always goes above and beyond and has very fair reasonable rates considering the top notch care she provides.

Robert L. Chesanow Dr. Kristine Matz. Thorough, smart, caring, available. After a first visit with my cat to Dr. Matz several years ago, I asked her if, should I become seriously ill, there were any way she could be my doctor. It was my awkward way of telling Dr. Matz how really good I thought she was. My admiration has only grown over the years.
