Dr Brian Atwell saved my horses' lives. My mare became ill the morning after giving birth to her first foal. The baby's life depended on mother, and thankfully he got her healthy as quickly as possible.
Brian was decisive and accurate in determining what was wrong, prioritized treatment, and gave me thorough instructions for after care. I appreciate his affection for horses and his thorough explanations to the horse owner.
He is highly professional in his personal conduct and quality of veterinary care. Maui horse owners are extremely fortunate to have Dr Brian a phone call away.
Dr Matchett has taken care of my horses for years. He is caring and concerned for their welfare. Over the years there have been accidents and surgeries, I can only hope that other people's vets are as competent as mine is.
