Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I've been to a lot of vets in a lot of different towns, but Dr. Walley in Crest Hill is by far the best. There is no price you can put on having a happy, healthy pet, and when the price is actually very affordable, that's even more amazing! I can tell that Dr. Walley cares more about the animals than the money because I've never encountered such reasonable prices for service. I'm not made of money, and fortunately I don't have to be. You can really tell everyone there cares. Also, my kitty, Chai, is terrible at vet offices; he yowls and yowls like he's being killed; but somehow he was perfectly quiet and happy with Dr. Walley! The kitty has obviously made his choice! The office is easy to find, clean, friendly, and it just feels right to be there. I'm never going anywhere else!"
    Dr. Walley - THANK YOU!" Krista S. and Chai
  • "Dr. Walley has been Baxter's vet for 6 years. He is the best veterinarian I have ever met, thorough, caring, up to date on new procedures, and top rate! I recommend Dr. Walley to anyone who has a pet they care about. We have lived in Kansas City, Southern California and now Naperville. The care Baxter receives here far exceeds his other veterinary care that was also more expensive. Dr. Walley's knowledge and compassion has extended Baxters life and quality of life without doubt! He has my highest recommendation!"
    Gayle L. and Baxter
  • "My dog, Charlie, was recently operated on by Dr. Walley to remove a cancerous tumor. Dr. Walley did an excellent job; moreover, his care and thoroughness were much appreciated. Also, his wife, Dr. Ling, has been incredible too. She is very professional and thorough. She is very friendly and loving with my pet. The staff is not intimidated by Charlie because he's a pit bull; rather, Doctors Walley and Ling as well as their staff have been nothing short of excellent. I would recommend their clinic to any pet owners."
    Tim H. and Charlie
  • "Dr Walley & Dr Ling and their staff have been great with all your pets, one of our pets Payton had to have hip replacement done. They were great with all our questions along the way."
    Jennifer Q. and Payton
  • "I will never take my animals anywhere else. Dr. Walley has gone way above & beyond what you would expect from your vet. He has taken great care of my baby, Tripper. You couldn't find a more caring & understanding vet. The rest of the staff is great ,too."
    Dawn E. and Tripper
