There aren’t any words … to express our thanks to Dr. Campbell (and your entire staff,) for taking care of our family.

baileyIn early January this year, we took our Chocolate Lab, Bailey, to our regular vet because she had been losing weight, appeared to be getting lame, and had recently begun bleeding. Our vet told us that Bailey was a very sick dog and that we should get her to your hospital in Woburn immediately. 

Bailey was taken in right away and after numerous tests we were told that she needed to stay for at least 2 or 3 nights with more tests, I.V.s, meds, and rest, due to internal hemorrhaging. We were introduced to Dr. Karen Campbell and she took over Bailey’s care for the next two months. Dr. Campbell cared for Bailey as if she were her own pet. She also took care of my wife and I, who were both imagining the worst possible outcome. 

Two months later we have a still-recovering, but healthy Bailey, back at home. 

There aren’t any words that we can say to express our thanks to Karen (and your entire staff,) for taking care of our family. 

As for Dr. Campbell, she is the most caring, compassionate and understanding doctor that we have ever had take care of our Bailey, who is like a child of our own. 

We are very excited that Bailey is back on the road to recovery, and at the same time,we will greatly miss the professionalism, love and affection, that Karen shared with us all. 

Usually people don’t take the time to sit down and say thank you, but they will take extra time to complain. I wanted to take this time just to say thank you and to tell you that you have a wonderful member of your team in Woburn. 

Thank you very, very much
