I love this place. Yes, they are overwhelmed with folks who need their care and do not answer the phone or return messages. They are much cheaper in price and allow poor folks to get shots or treatments their pets need. They are not high end veterinary care and only offer basic services. They are very friendly when I am there and do a great job. If you want more personal care, go to a private vet. If you want great care at an affordable price, bring your pet here.

Dr. Early is easily the best vet around. He's straightforward, doesn't waste time and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. You can tell he is in the business for the benefit of the animal, not profit. I wouldn't trust my animals with anyone else. Shelly is a sweetheart, and I adore her. She is so sympathetic, and that is a trait hard to find nowadays. Hands down best veterinary office in the Blue Ridge and surrounding areas

I have been bringing my pets to Dr. Early since I moved to the area in 2003. He is very knowledgeable. He is straight forward and does not waste time or $$. Shelly has been his assistant as long as I can remember and she does a fantastic job. My daughters cat recently passed away from cancer and they sent her a very nice sympathy card. Not many veterinary offices would have bothered to do that.

You won't spend a small fortune taking your animal here, and the good doctor won't run a bunch of silly/expensive tests on an otherwise healthy animal just because it's trendy or profitable to do so. Never had to sit in the waiting room long because they don't overbook. Really knows his stuff, can ask this vet anything. Highly recommend.

The case managers are friendly and caring, they work very hard to help in every way possible. It is also a blessing to know that there was no cost.

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.
