When I heard that my Veterinarian, Dr.John Rethman was going to be “Chief of Staff” at the new Animal Medical Center of Warrenton (formerly Fox Chase Vet Clinic). I knew my dogs and I would have a permanent home. See, Dr. Rethman has been my Vet for almost 20 years. For several years he was a relief Veterinarian all over Northen Virginia and I followed him everywhere he went. Now that he is head of the Animal Medical Center of Warrenton, it makes it so much easier for me and my dogs.
I don’t know where to begin to tell anyone and everyone what a wonderful, compassionate and caring individual he is. I have had many dogs over the past 20 years, and Dr. Rethman has always been there for them and for me, especially at some of my most difficult times. He is aware of my feelings for my dogs,- he understands they are “my kids” and he treat them as such, which means the world to me. Dr Rethman is on top of all the latest medicine, and yet he has given me common advice when caring for my dogs.
He is NOT your typical Vet that suggests the most expensive way to treat your animal, and he will be honest with you in deciding the best treatment for your dog, (or cat.) He will not alarm you as the owner, and has a calming affect with all his patients, INCLUDING their owners!
I feel one of his greatest assets is he never too busy to talk with you, he makes you feel like you are the only client he has – he takes time with you and your animal, he will never rush you. He understands!
To put it in a nut shell – Dr Rethman is the greatest, most wonderful Veterinarian I have ever come in contact with. My dogs and I are blessed to have him as our Vet, but most important he is a true friend.
