Survey: Veterinarians Ranked #7 Most Trusted Profession in Canada

Great News for Veterinarians in Markham:

Public opinion about the veterinary clinics in Markham matters to us. Like all professionals, veterinarians want to build long-term trusting relationships with their clients. However review site about veterinarians like vetratingz.com seem to suggest that most veterinarians are unethical and recommend tests or procedures that are not necessary. These sites are mainly frequented by clients that are extremely unhappy and who had a bad experience.

Or, as Dr. Marsig put it: “Rating websites … seem to attract only extremely emotionally charged reviews, which is unfortunate, because extreme situations do not reflect the experiences of thousands of satisfied clients. We however are all human und we understand that when things go as expected, we are all satisfied without raving about it.”
