MacPhail and his wife are unethical. It finally caught up with him. And be careful about his wife; she's just as bad. MacPhail called the owner of a dog being boarded at the hospital. The dog was owned by State Attorney Jill Fitzgerald. She went on vacation, left the dog to be boarded. The dog became ill and was not properly treated. MacPhail called to tell Fitzgerald the dog died. He then went and changed information in his computer to make it appear he and his wife were properly treating the dog.
BEWARE OF THE DOCTORS AT DELAND ANIMAL HOSPITAL.
Monetary Loss: $1000.
