This SE Portland clinic, known for its comfy furniture and high-touch service, is a consistent Top Dog favorite. Dr. Kristin Sulis opened the practice in hopes of creating a sunlit, environmentally-friendly atmosphere that would nurture her clients, patients and staff. Consecutive years of praise and top awards prove she has succeeded.
“I wanted a space that was very pet friendly,” Dr. Sulis says, “hence the rough-ground concrete floors and carpet. Our weight scale is sunken in the ground so dogs only have to stand on a piece of carpet and get cookies, which isn't too hard.” The clinic exudes a lighthearted, upbeat energy reflected back in client reviews. Sulis points to her current favorite: a client’s hilarious description of her dog “licking up every precious drop of glow-in-the-dark orange Easy Cheese” that Mt. Tabor’s award-winning Dr. Krissy Bussmann dispenses to turn a potentially-scary needle aspiration into a pretty fun deal. Bussmann is a 2nd Place Top Dog in the individual Veterinarian category this year.
Dr. Bussmann sums up Mt. Tabor’s credo like this: "I find that it’s best to simply be genuine, kind, caring, and invested in each pet's greatest possible well-being." – Michelle Blake
