My wife makes me drive an hour to Baltimore to take our pets to Dr. Klimentidis. We live in Westminster and there are no shortages of vets here. My wife says that Dr. Klimentidis is the best vet she has ever gone to and she should know because she has worked at different animal hospitals. Of course I moan and complain about having to go an hour away to take all of our many pets, BUT in the end, I know that it is worth it because Dr. Klimentidis IS the best! She is both caring and technically excellent. She checks everything and communicates any problems to us. She takes time from her personal life to check on the well-being of our beloved pets. When something is beyond her scope, she recommends specialists who have been excellent. When we didn't know what was wrong with one of our cats and no other vet could help, Dr Klimentidis properly diagnosed cancer. She did this because she knows what she is doing and knew what to look for. This probably gave us an extra 3 years with our cat, Mariah, because we were able to treat it aggressively. Dr Klimentidis cannot, however, take the place of pet parents. She can only recommend and guide people to do what she suggests. If people do not take her advice, then she cannot be held responsible. So as one of the best vets in the state, I have recommended numerous people to her and will continue to do so.
