|The vet I'd trust...
| Dr Shim
is now the only Vet in Orange Cnty that I'd trust with the
care of my animals. He is knowledgable, gentle, caring, and
concerned with not only the health of my cats but also with
the cost of caring for them. He and his team are excellent
practictioners. I now take my pets to Alton Main for their
annual shot regimens, their baths, flea treatments, food,
and emergency care. Recently, one of my older cats was suffering
from the lingering effects of a kidney disease. Dr Shim ran
a series of tests that uncovered an additional problem - and
the animal is now receiving treatment for a thyroid condition
that had gone undetected by their former Vet. The prognosis
for her recovery is good. I am very grateful for Dr Shim's
attention to details and his insistence on thoroughness.

|Alton Main Animal Hospital is
| We recently
had our sick dog Jolly treated at this hospital by Dr. Hyung
Shim and he was a SUPERB physician! Jolly had been demonstrating
intermittent problems with breathing. He listened (really listened)
to the symptoms that we told him that we had observed and he
asked very good questions. He did an extensive assessment (blood,urine,
xray) - very thorough! Once he had the results - he gave us
his diagnosis/opinion in a very honest manner. He gave us numerous
options as to what he thought would be best for Jolly. We took
Jolly home and on the ride home we had more questions.
I called him and he talked with me for some time and he gave
me referrals to specialist hospitals and he sent me the xray
via e-mail so that we could get assistance over the weekend
as we were really worried about his condition - not knowing
if he would get worse - or if we had seen the worst of it. The
following day Dr. Shim was kind enough to continue to assist
us - even though it was his day off! He demonstrated his intelligence,
compassion, and good common sense with the advice that he gave
us. We followed his advice and took him to a specialist hospital
and we are SO GLAD that we did as Jolly is better - back playing
with his buddy Sparky. Alton Main Animal Hospital is SUPERB!
I would rec-commend this hospital to every animal/pet lover
in the world!!! We will continue taking Jolly and Sparky there
- that is for sure!!!! We love you Dr. Shim - and we love the
entire staff - you are all AWESOME!!!! I have one question for
those of you reading this review.....how do you REALLY thank
someone for saving your pet's life?

|Thanks to Dr. Shim and staff...
| I am thoroughly
impressed and extremely thankful for the recent care that we
received for our 11 week old puppy, Izzy. Dr. Hyung Shim is
amazingly caring and professional. He explained the problem
in "layman" terms and the various choices of treatments.
We were allowed to ask as many questions as we had and we never
felt that he was rushed for time or brushing our concerns aside.
He actually listened to us! He was available to talk to when
we called to check on her while she was in the hospital and
he PERSONALLY called to check and see how we were doing after
we had her home. The staff was friendly and informative -- at
the front desk, Malia was a joy to deal with even in our "stressed"
