  • My family and I have been bringing our pets to Pico Rivera Animal Hospital for years. We trust Dr. Goraya and his staff to take care of our pets' needs. We recently took our dog in because she was very sick. The kindness and love for their patients are very evident. I would call my pet's doctor to give a daily report as she was taking her medication. The doctors and staff were very kind and very thorough from beginning to end. Our pet is doing well now. We are grateful to Dr. Goraya and his staff for all they do to keep our family pets healthy and happy. God Bless you and your staff, always!
