PLEASE READ!!!!!!. These b@stards are heartless money hungry animal haters. My dog needed to have a surgical procedure done and Dr. Elbasty "promised" that he would have, (and I quote) "a success rate of 90%". He stated, "if you have the procedure done here, you will have a 90% chance of success. If you go outside it is 50%. I've done this procedure several times. After surgery, she can live 5 to 6 more years." Well, that all turned out to be complete and utter bull$hit. My dog had the operation done on Friday night. We picked her up on Monday night and she passed away Wednesday evening. We spent $2,000 believing that we were doing the right thing for our dog and instead she passed away in pain. My father came home to her struggling to breathe and immediately took her back to these @ssholes (we live 5 mins away) and bursted in there screaming for help. Did anyone rush to his aid or give a $hit? Nope. Did we have witnesses? Yup. We got their number too, they were more then willing to testify to what they saw. Did I mention they forgot to give us her medication post surgery?? Then, when we called the doctor to confront him, he started cursing us out. How professional. Btw-he is a racist. Before we agreed to the surgery he was telling us about another dog owner who was a "piece of $hit, because you know, hispanics are all like that." I am not hispanic, but am married to one so of course, I took offense to that. Oh, how I wish those fancy cameras they have set up all over their offices are audio and visual. If only I could get my hands on them to prove to the world what douchbags these people really are. Please, please, please, do your pet and your self a favor and avoid this place like the plague. If you love your pet then stay away from this hell hole.
Absolutely about profits first and pet last. I feel ripped off and foolish now for bringing my dog there. I had gone there two times. First time my dog was itchy all over and was biting himself for a few days now. I didn't know what to do so I took him here as it was in walking distance from home. Completely overpriced and even though I had an appointment, we had to wait over 3 hours before we were called in! Unbelievable. And it was expensive too. Vet injected cortizone shot to stop the itch. Made me get a special shampoo for $45! And pills to take. Total cost $200. The second visit was cause my dog had swallowed a bone so I couldn't take him to his regular vet that's not in the neighborhood. Took him here again out of desperation. X-rays shows bone not there (odd but glad) but blood test shows some enzyme off the charts. He had to stay for two nights in the clinic on IV. Found out they don't walk them at all. My poor pooch held his business in for the whole time as best he could (he only goes outside) and I was told they walk them twice a day. Obviously not. He had to go so badly and wet his bedding in the cage and had poop stuck all over his bottom when I went to pick him up. Total price tag with medication prescription etc, was over $2000! And then was told he should get a biopsy. Uh, that was when I had it. I took him home and now am in the care of his regular vet, doing an ultrasound first to check what's wrong. I'm not having my pet in open surgery unless it's absolutely necessary. So many complications can arise and if there are other ways to check things out, then that's what they should do first, not what's most expensive and risky. I realized that my pooch did not have to stay overnight. It was not necessary. Oh and they make you sign a release form that states in the case if something goes wrong while your pet is in their care, you won't sue them...
Profits first, animals last.
We can no longer use this clinic. We used it for over 4 years. And we were too lazy to look for other options since this is the only clinic we know new our home.
I can see now that this clinic only prioritizes profit, and offers questionable and treatments that will not help you animal, and tests and tests and tests that are overprice, and done in the premises with questionable equipments.
When we took our cat Erika there in December 2010, she showed signs of kidney failure. I was told I needed to put her in intensive care for 4 days. Price tag: $4,000 to $5,000. Mybe would need 4 more days, which would then increase the price.
And I was told I needed several different tests, which I did. Price tag: $870. I have yet to see some of the tests, which were all done inhouse. Tests done inhouse are not reliable.
Took Erika to another vet for a second opinion. Recommended to care for her at home, which we did. Price tag including medications: $170.
Erika is doing great now.
About two years ago, our other cat also went to this clinic, we were told she needed immediate care. 2 das in there, price tag: $1,200.
because they wanted to open her up, and I quote "to try to find out what was wrong with her".
Removed the from there. I realized that all she had was constipation.
For them all you and your pets are just sources of quick profit.
Very expensive, not ethical.
The bottom line: will recommend tests that your pet does not need. Will recommend unnecessary treatment.
The place is all about money.
