  • 1. good staff

    by: nann1211

    Dr Formea is a favorite of my Chow Chow, Teddy. He recognizes the building when we drive up and will eagarly jump up on the exam table when it is his turn. Dr. Formea is his favorite and he always gets excited to see him. We were much saddened when he decided to close the office that was closest to us, as now we have to travel much farther to get there.

    Pros

    wonderful knowledgeble staff

    Cons

    too far away to be convenient

  • 3. Awesome!

    by: a1smallfry

    It is always a pleasure (for me at least!) to visit this facility. I never have trouble getting an appointment. The staff is pleasant, knowledgeable and wonderful with the patients, and Dr. Formea is friendly and always willing to answer questions. He listens to clients' input, offers his opinions, and works with the client to determine the best approach for the situation. And they never try to sell you more than you really need. It would be great if they could update their record keeping and communications; fax is available, but receipts are hand-written on forms and there's no e-mail or computerized transfer of data. However, this does not at all detract from performance, and they more than make up for it with outstanding service and truly caring for the pets. It doesn't hurt that it's within walking distance, either! I'm so glad I found them.

    Pros

    Convenient, reasonable prices, good availability

    Cons

    Office not computerized

    After getting our lab we cam to Dr Formea as a vet and we have been very pleasantly surprised. The staff is always willing to take the time to answer any questions or concerns and Dr Formea truly shows how much he loves animals. Their prices are reasonable compared to other vets in the area. Even my dog Kira gets her little tail wagging when she gets in the door!

    Pros

    Easy access to Alton and surrounding area

    Cons

    No Wednesday hours
