Veterinarian reviews in Redwood City


Our dog was diagnosed with terminal Osteosarcoma in March. We were referred to Veterinary Surgical Associates (VSA) in San

, and ultimately
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
(VMS) in
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
for palliative treatment. Everyone we dealt with at both companies was professional, competent, caring, friendly, and helpful. They fully answered every one of our questions (and we had a lot); they made sure we knew all of our options. They took the time to get to know us, our dog, her needs, and our wishes. We were never rushed. We knew from the beginning what would ultimately happen, but they did their best to make sure that she was as comfortable as possible, and that we had as long as we could with her. It was obvious that they truly cared about our dog, took good care of her, and us until the very end, and beyond. They were thoughtful, supportive and understanding. Our dog always hated going to the vet, but the VMS people made her feel comfortable and at ease. She almost seemed to enjoy her visits, I know she very much liked the people. I hope I never need major medical services for another dog, but if I do, I'm going to VMS. I can't recommend them highly enough. During the last several months of her treatment, Dr. Kiselow,

, and
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
were so helpful, and so kind. Our dog didn't like most people in general, but she liked every one there. You could tell that the VMS people weren't just doing a job, that they were there to help. It made the whole difficult process quite a bit easier.

They have several different convenient ways to schedule routine appointments. You can drop off for the day, you can have an allotted 1.5 time slot or you can schedule an actual appointment. I chose the time slot and was able to come between 9am-10:30am when I dropped him off then ran errands for a little while and came back to pick him up. Very convenient and Dr.
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is always great. When I have been there for an exam where I needed to attend the appointment, he has always taken the time needed to explain things and options. He is a great vet!

I guess we should ask the dog, but what I can tell you is that they were NOT happy. The ear infection was well treated, but for the rest, the dogs were pretty dramatized by the experience. Also, the vet pushed for extra care, and were not really pleasant with our dogs.

We started to go to the
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
when we lived in the city. Even after moving to RWC, we would not change. They are great, very friendly, expert in their field. They will follow-up with you on the phone with any blood test diagnosis that you need to know asap, they will not hesitate to ask for a second opinion. They will not push for any surgery: we had a litter of 8 golden retrievers. 3 of them started to limp. Now we know they grew too fast, because they are perfectly healthy now. But at the time,
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
advise to wait & see while another Vet for the other pups advise for a surgery. We know now that we got and shared the best advises coming from this hospital. We had a couple of emergencies, and they always accommodated their schedules for our dogs. We had bad experience with another vet in the past (the dogs too, and remember), so it was a obvious choice to go to this Pet Hospital.

We are quite happy with the care our cat has received from Dr.

Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and her staff. Dr.
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is very knowledgeable, caring and has great follow-up. Importantly, also, all members of the veterinary support staff at
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
that provide veterinary care are certified and well-trained, and they are also very gentle and caring.

This was my first visit to
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and it went horribly. I could hear my cat howling in distress during the hour she was there and they wouldn't let me be with her. The veterinarian,
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, gave my poor cat to a not fully trained assistant and did not supervise the blood draw or urine extraction. The assistant needlessly and painfully shaved my cat in two places (leaving painful, red razor burns in both places) because he couldn't find a
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
to do a blood draw from. The shaved areas look awful and it will be a year before the hair grows back in fully. This was unnecessary & painful to my cat. It was clear from her howling that the urine extraction was also unnecessarily painful. When I confronted the vet about why he didn't supervise her treatment, he lied and said he did. I know he did not, because I heard him talking on the phone during that time. My cat is very traumatized by her experience at
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
-Wood;so am I. I will never take her back.

Phone calls were promised but not done. I took the cat in for ultrasound, but when I called six hours later, no one had even looked at him. Staff referred to cat as her even after I corrected them. Doctor was not thoughtful in delivering bad news.

They were very helpful. Though this was a tough time with my ailing rabbit, they did the best they could to try to help him with meds and the attention he needed. They are always pleasant over the phone and in person. They would call to check on him as well.

Wonderful. This was the 1st vet I had taken my rabbit to before
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
vet hospital. I changed only because the dr. Moved to
Redwood City Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
where I had to seek a new vet. Though my dog stayed at this facility & the staff is wonderful & cared for my dog. Were very gentle with him when he was scared. Always had time in their schedule for my animals & I've referred family members who still go there now. Wonderful people

Very good. My dog seems much more comfortable now. The doctor was very knowledgeable & I'm so thankful, because I had taken the dog to two other vets who were clueless about what to do about dental problems. The only thing is that he is very expensive. But since he's the only dog dentist in town, I guess supply & demand means that we
