Combs Veterinary Clinic
I've been taking my dogs to Combs for years. The veterinarians are always honest and compassionate, and I feel they have my dog's best interest at heart. Right now they only have one veterinarian on staff, which makes scheduling a bit challenging, but I've not had any issues with it. It seems there are other reviewers complaining about Combs not having emergency services available. This is a clinic not a hospital, so it's unfair to criticize Combs for not being all that you want. They don't have the staff or facility to deal with all animal emergencies, but they certainly work with their clients. Recently they had a dog come in with a broken leg that needed amputating, but the owners wanted to put the animal down instead. Combs offered to take the dog and re-home it, which they did, and they drastically discounted the cost of the surgery. They have my loyalty.

Monroe Primary Care
So far not impressed with the landmark location. This is my 2nd visit here. My regular dr is a Monroe primary dr, Dr Musa and she is amazing! The front desk staff have been (both times) more interested in chatting personal crap with their co-workers than checking you in. Even tho I was the only patient there on both visits. You will have to wait until they get free to acknowledge you. My first trip was to dr Spence. The personality of a rock. I have an issue with my finger and he didn't even touch it. A waste of time and money!Second trip I saw nurse practitioner Wendy Veeder. Loved he.! Great listener! Very personable. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend her. Front desk staff needs to be wait on patients first and socialize when patients are taken care of

Combs Veterinary Clinic
I have nothing but good things to say about this clinic! My mini schnauzer has been going there over a year and they have been pleasant. informantive and very kind! I am always greeted warmly by the desk gals! They even saw him right away when he was bitten by a snake last spring, offering life saving advice over the phone before we could get there!!! I DO reccomend this Clinic to others and will keep taking my Charlie!

They did a really great job on Hercules. He was in there getting his balls cut off, poor darling. First time he'd been away from home. GB
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
