The staff at Dr. Shender's office is extremely rude. I was told that an emergency with my dog being sick does not serve as a valid reason to cancel my doctor's appointment. Alex (one of the rude staff members) hung up the phone on me twice when I called to cancel and said that he does not wish to continue this conversation. Stay away from this office and rude staff!
