I love working with Dr. Antinoff. I feel like she truly cares and loves what she does. She is warm, friendly, and very compassionate. She is the only person in Houston I trust to take my geckos to. Plus, the front staff began to recognize me and showed excitement for Togo when I came to pick him up to go home three days after his surgery. They were great to work with.
