My favorite!! Dr Scotti has been over vet since 1995!

Dr. Kilgore is so kind and caring and so darn smart. He always puts me at ease with any issues I may be having with Murphy. He is very thorough and patiently answers all of my questions. I have to give Murphy meds prior to the visit because she gets so nervous. We laugh and say that I should be the one that needs to be sedated!!! The technician was extremely nice and knowledgeable. Always a good experience and to know Murphy is in the best hands with Dr. Kilgore is the best feeling. Thank you!

Dr Shaw is great! We recently moved from California and have been bringing our small terrier mix here.  I am a physician and I love that Dr. Shaw clearly explains his differential when we present him with our dog with a specific symptom. Some other vets I’ve had keep the differential very broad and often want to test for various things without good explanation. Dr Shaw is different in that he clearly deduces what is the most likely diagnosis based on a good physical exam and history of presentation. He lays out the options and gives the owner the choice if they want to pursue a more aggressive workup or not, understanding that sometimes it can be expensive. He has great bedside manner and takes the time to explain his reasoning and answer any questions. Overall, very glad I finally found a highly competent and reasonable vet for my dog!

I always recommend Springfield to those looking for a good general or repro vet. The vets are wonderful, the techs are phenomenal, and the front staff are terrific! They are always professional, compassionate and responsive.

Springfield Veterinary Center is the Commonwealth’s premier pet reproductive veterinary practice and as a consequence, one of the most research and science-driven practices in the Mid-Atlantic region.  Dr. Kolster and her colleagues are venerated by their counterparts in practices throughout the state and region, and deeply respected by the region’s major academic animal research and reproductive centers at Virginia Tech and North Carolina State. In addition to her extraordinary medical, scientific, and technical acumen, Dr. Kolster is unfailingly generous with her time and knowledge, kind, principled, and firm in her care for the welfare of her pet patients. The team she has built around her is extraordinarily professional, accessible, and enthusiastic about delivering the highest standard of sensitive and responsive care to patients. We are lucky to have Springfield Veterinary Center in Virginia, and I refer all of my puppy owners to it with deepest respect and confidence.
