@ the truth speaks - As a veterinary assistant that has worked for Dr. Lee for 8 years, I am sorry that I am only just reading your review. There may have been some miscommunication regarding the procedure, and I would like to clarify.
It sounds like you did not know exactly what you were asking for. For the fixing of male cats, neutering, it is only a one day service with no follow-ups needed. But, for a female cat it is called a spay, and that requires a free follow-up visit to remove the stitches 10-14 days after the surgery was performed. Dr. Lee does two layers of stitches for a spay. The inside layer does disintegrate within the body through time, but the outer needs to be inspected and removed by the doctor. He uses these because the dissolvable sutures are more prone to infection if used to seal a wound from the outside. Besides, it is always a good idea to touch base and have the doc inspect the surgery area once it has fully healed.
Now, Dr. Lee's fees for a spay are a bit higher than low-cost clinics and humane societies, but that is because he takes his time (usually about 45 minutes). The low-cost clinics shuffle them in and out within minutes, and we occasionally have to undo the damage caused by cheap work (hernias). Their practice is with their quantity, and not their quality. The only thing that you will get from Dr. Lee is quality service and quality care, and we take pride in serving our community with it.
It is very admirable of you to be taking on the responsibility of spaying one of our many strays in the community, and I am sorry that our work wasn't what you were looking for. You must be someone who has a heart for our animal friends in the community. I hope that this response clarifies any miscommunication for you, and that you might consider us with your dear family pet in the future.
not a good idea – stray cat for nueter, claimed 1 day, didnt use disposable stiches, how could this even be legal. had to pay to have them care for cat for additional 10 days until stitches were removed... alot of run around with scheduling. after an exceptionally large bill, found out that OCHS gives vouchers for free nueter of stray cats... i felt ripped off, disrespected, and taken advantage of. would never revisit!
