I moved to Silver Spring from North Carolina in March 2010, and have been in search of a competent, caring, trustworthy vet since my arrival. My previous vet in Carolina was like no other, so finding a new vet was a daunting task, as I am extraordinarily selective in who I let treat my babies. I did extensive on-line research, and went to about a dozen different vet offices in ths area. I have two dogs, both with special needs, and two cats. One of my cats was seen by several vets, and I was absolutely dismayed with each one! After 5 months of "trial and error" experiences, I got lucky.
Not until I met Dr. Hanson did I find the traits I so diligently sought. She took the time to get to "know" my kitty, then my 12 year old Akita, created a bond of trust with them before she did any kind of exam. She treated us like we were the only patients she had! She is warm, gentle, and so caring. She spoke to me in terms that I easily understood, and gave recommendations that proved correct. Not only is she knowledgable, but she's personable.
**The "clincher" is the fact that Dr. Hanson herself, made FOLLOW-UP calls to me regarding each of my babies! Who does that???? Not even my beloved vet in Carolina went that extra mile, and I held her in the highest of regards.**
I can't speak of the other vets in that office, as I am 100% satisfied with Dr. Hanson, and SHE is my vet now! She is a credit to her profession, and I can honestly, and enthusiastically recommend her to anyone!
I would be remiss not to also mention Louis, the technician. Very impressed with his bedside manner, and personality. He obviously loves his work! The staff is equally impressive! Courteous, polite, and professional with a "human touch". What a wonderful group of people.

There are very few things in life I feel passionate enough about to put in print. In fact this is my first review. But I have had such an exceptional experience at Tacoma Park Animal Clinic; I want to get the word out. I don’t want anyone to go through what I went through.
I moved to Maryland 2 years ago, and I have had one horrible experience after another trying to find a vet. I found what I was missing here at Tacoma Park, I found people who love your animal the way you love your animal. People who treat what you came in for and don’t try to sell you the undercoating treatment.
Here in Dr. Hines I found my vet after a 2 year search. What a relief. I am driving further to get to this vet, but I am happy, and my dog is happy. It feels like an All State commercial, but I know we are in good hands at Tacoma Park.
