  • Dr.
    Maria Diaz
    Although she’d had an affinity for animals since she was young, Dr. Diaz wasn’t sure that veterinary medicine was her true calling until her first year of college. After a year and a half of architecture studies, she realized that it was time for a change. During the first semester of her sophomore year, she decided to do some volunteer work at a local animal practice. It didn’t take long for Dr. Diaz to become hooked—she decided almost immediately to start making arrangements to attend veterinary school!

Testimonials

  • "They were extremely helpful, available, cared about my super stressed cat but also me! Dedicated people. I visited more than 10 vets in Miami. This is the first one I will come back to. Reasonable prices also and more than perfect service. Thank you guys."
  • "THIS PLACE IS AMAZING...Where shall I start? Could it be at how impeccably clean the office was? The wonderful receptionist Christina who greeted us like family? Or the amazing Dr. Mara who treated my two children, I mean dogs, I really mean children, like her own? …I'll just say that Dr. Mara has a gift and so does her staff, you have to be an animal person and work with love to treat animals. I never felt rushed, all my questions were answered, everything I was playing was explained to me before, with options to do the procedures or not, or at a later time. They were gentle and patient with me and my dogs, and Christina the receptionist called and followed up with me to see how my kids were doing after the visit. I LOVE THIS vet office and I will continue to drive the almost hour it takes me from my home to go there because they treated me and my dogs like family. I highly recommend this vet office to anyone that wants to have a positive and warm experience."
