    Indie 7

     This is Indie 7, the Clinic clown!  She can often be seen waiting at the window to greet everyone who stops by.  But don't let that cute face fool you; she steals all the toys!  She came to Dr. M in Aug 2015 at the request of Pooka...and all they can say is "What was she thinking!"

Pooka Jones

And then, there is Pooka.  Pooka was chosen by Dr. M at the Humane Society in Feb. 2015.  She is often seen hovering around Dr. M's feet at the clinic or barking at Indie to keep her in line. She is happy to just bark at you when you come by for a visit.

"Everyone in the clinic is absolutely wonderful!  They were able to squeeze me in at the last minute and take care of my kitten's wound.  Very reasonable prices, highly recommended. --Melanie M.  5/4/17 Google review

"I am so happy to have this new vet on the westside!  She is kind...honest and gentle.  She and her assistant treated me like a good friend.  They are helping us through the final stages of our dogs life...she even called to check on my baby!  I'm am very happy with the care they are providing for us!!!  Rebekah A.  5/4/17  Facebook review

"Best vet in town.  Dr. Martinez is kind & caring.  Her love of animals is evident in the way she treats her patients.  She helped us save our little Lola.  I was surprised to get a phone call a few days after our visit.  I've never had a vet call to check up how my pet was doing.  She's the best!" --Bobbie A. H  May 1,2017  Facebook review

"Excelent Servicio y la Doctora muestra su amor por los animalitos :) ! Virginia C. 4/21/17 Facebook review

"Dr. Martinez is the most caring and sweet veterinarian I'ver ever met!  I'm so thankful to know her.  I highly recommend her.  You never have to wait to be seen and she does accept walk ins.  She is very gentle and loving to my babies.  Thank you Dr. Martinez!  Krista A. 3/28/17 Facebook review

"Dr. Martinez is the absolute best!  Being in the healthcare field I have witnessed many patient/customer interactions.  The stellar customer service we received today exceeded every expectation!  The way Dr. Martinez interacts with her customers and patients is exactly what you want for your pet.  The first time I walked in the door, I felt a sense of tranquility.   The care you receive is individualized and Dr. Martinez and Gaby work in sync to make your experience memorable.  Thank you Dr. Martinez and Gaby- I will continue to tell everyone I meet how amazing you are!" Denise G.  2/14/17  (facebook page)

"This place is AMAZING! I had such a great experience taking my dogs here for their annual shots.  I was nervous because I have rescue dogs and my girl dog has a particularly difficult time with strangers, especially males and children.  Dr. Martinez and Gabriela were both wonderful with my dogs.  They pet them and gave them treats throughout the whole visit.  My girl dog was nervous at the beginning and by the end of the visit she was sniffing around the office and happily approaching the staff to beg for treats.  I loved how calm and collected both Dr. Martinez and Gabriela were.  These gals are pros for sure!  Dr. Martinez seemed very knowledgeable and took the time to discuss any concerns and questions I had about my dogs.  The prices are reasonable and the staff was up front about all costs for the services. Definitely would recommend this clinic to all pet parents! Thanks Dr. Martinez and Gabriela!---Tosca W.   2/10/17  facebook review

" I am not a very religious person but I can honestly state that Dr. Melinda Martinez is God sent, I called our regular vet at 4:30 pm to see if they could see one of our cats that came home in pretty bad shape.  They could not see our cat but they referred us to Dr. Martinez.  Even though it was closing time, Gabby and Dr. Martinez waited for us. Our cat Diego was hit by a car, he had a broken jaw, fractures on the bone around his left eye and fractured nose. Dr. Martinez did surgery on his jaw and our cat looks almost normal, I know that with her care, Diego, will survive.  I have never met such a compassionate doctor who truly loves animals and that goes above and beyond her duties with our cat.  The minute you walk into her place you can feel the warmth and love that exists there.  the clinic is very clean and I was surprised that it did not smell.  I am recommending all my family and friends who have pets to switch to Dr. Martinez care. ...One more thing, her prices are very reasonable.  Thank you Dr. Martinez and Gabby.   Ronnie N---Jan. 6, 2017 (facebook )

" I wish I could give this place 10000 stars!  Dr. Martinez is the best!!!! I've brought my dogs here and she treats them with such love!  She and gabby are always beyond friendly.  I recommend her to every pet owner I know!  She takes her time and treats us like if we where family.  She is very loving and I am so glad we found her!  She is truly an animal lover and the prices here are great!  thank you for all that you do! Max, max, daisy thank you!---Grace C.  11/17/16  Facebook page

"Dr. Martinez and her assistant Gaby are absolutely wonderful.  I've brought several of my pets and have always received the best care. Dr. Martinez takes her time and sincerely wants the best for your pets.  I have been to other veterinary clinics in the city and this is by far the best.  The office is very welcoming and clean.  Highly recommended." --- Daniela R. 11/11/16  Facebook pg

"A really friendly, professional, and thorough vet.  The office is always clean, they keep good records and they go above and beyond to ensure your pet is relaxed and cares for.  They don't push for extra services and are honest with pricing.  Highly recommended." Jazmine C. 9/5/16 Facebook page

Dr. Melinda was great with Lucy...she did surgery on her with no problems at all...Lucy is doing great...highly recommend Holy Family Pet Care..."  D. Valtier 8/3/16 Facebook page

"Dr. M than you for taking care of my baby "lucy".  You did an amazing job and I am grateful for everything."          P. Jurado  8/3/16 Facebook page

"I highly recommend coming to Holy Family Pet Care!  Dr. Martinez and her stff were on top of everything for my Pup.  They are very friendly.  Best place to bring your Pet! Thank you Dr. Martinez and staff for all your help!" ---Lorenzo R.  7/4/16 Facebook page

"Dr. Martinez's calm manner and clinical expertise was so reassuring when I brought my dog Fox Mulder to see her.  Thank you for taking care of Fox Mulder and making his visit with you such a positive experience! " -- Marilie  S. 2/13/16 Facebook page

"Holy Family Pet Care helped us through one of the most difficult moments our family has experienced.  Our Australian shepherd was suffering from an autoimmune disorder when we brought her to Holy Family Pet Care.  We had previously met  Dr. Melinda Martinez, and we were so glad we made the decision to seek her help.  Our dog had to spend two full business days at their vet clinic for observation.  I can honestly say I've never felt so comfortable about leaving my dog at a vet clinic.  Their facilities are clean, quiet and actually quite peaceful (classical music is always playing in the background).  The staff at Holy Family Pet care are both extremely professional and so passionate and kind to animals.  As a matter of fact, our aussie is still popping by for check ups...and she gets genuinely excited every single time we walk in the front door.  I think it's safe to say Billie the Aussie loves Dr. Martinez and Kira.  Check this place out if you're searching for an amazing vet in the El Paso area!  We will be forever grateful the attentive care our girl received during a really scary time in our lives!" -- Tony W.  2/22/16 Facebook page
