Dr.
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is one of the best vets I've known and the best vet for cats I've found in Tampa Bay. All of the support and tech staff are good humored and efficient, and they almost always find a way to fit us in when something looks like it might be urgent. There are other vets in the practice and everyone is competent, but I think Dr.
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is exceptional.

I moved to this area, and had gone to this vet for the annual check-up of my dog. All went well that time.
My last visit, originally just intended for grooming, was a disaster. I sent the below email to the owner and after a few days called her and left a message. I did not get any response.
"I was extremely frustrated after I returned from my visit yesterday, in which I waited nearly an hour and nothing got done.
I wanted to get
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
washed yesterday. When I called, your receptionist told me he is due for vaccines and I could just get that done while he was there. I agreed. I brought
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
in a little after ten, expecting to just drop him off. Instead I waited ten minutes just to speak to the receptionist, who then told me there were no rooms available and to wait in the reception area. I protested saying that I just wanted to drop him off, and she responded that it was necessary for the vaccines. After 15 minutes I was
brought to a room, where I waited another 10 minutes for a tech. She told that I need to actually see the vet and get an exam for the vaccines. That is ok, but I was never told this.
I went back to the reception, where I waited another ten minutes to find out when I could pick
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
up. Meanwhile, your receptionist was getting increasingly rude with me. Finally the groomer showed up and told me she could not get him done before 4:40. At that time she got rude with me too, giving me a lecture about why my dog takes long."
I had plans for yesterday late afternoon, and decided I could not do it. I walked out. So, after wasting about an hour, I finally returned home, having gotten nothing done. I decided to never return again. However, this morning I felt like that would not be fair to you and your husband, as you are doing your best to make a business. You are probably oblivious to the rudeness and incompetence of some of your staff. So I felt I should at least let you know what happened."
Either the owner/manager does not care or the receptionist has intercepted my communications. This is sad, because the vet (her husband) is nice and competent. My grades are based on my overall experience, not just this one visit.

With a large dog and three cats, I've tried a lot of different vets in the area, and
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is my favorite. The receptionist is THE BEST!! She is always so helpful, she follows through, she cares and she is just amazing. I barely have to wait, even when they squeeze me in for an emergency visit-- they are more punctual than any vet. They've handled everything to regular maintenance care, bite wounds, and UTI. They don't over charge or demand unnecessary tests -- and the care is extraordinary. I love this clinic!

Arrived at veterinary hospital, convenient parking, nice lobby, pleasant personable staff including receptionist that made me feel that they cared about me and my cat. Gave full consultation before the Dr's exam, then the Doctor, who is a friendly older gentlemen with lots of knowledge told us what to expect, then post examination before leaving another consultation with an experienced aid. All in all I was very satisfied with the level of care my cat received here.

My only observation was that they did not include the prices of their services upfront. As I have the means to pay, it didn't bother me, but I noticed others being surprised when they were checking out at the price and may not have been fully prepared during the process.

I was referred to Dr.
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
at this animal hospital by my primary care vet, after my cat was diagnosed with a malignant tumor near his cheekbone. Since the cancer was essentially inoperable, we undertook a series of four "palliative" radiation treatments, and a series of six chemotherapy infusions. The prognosis was that my cat would have a reasonably good quality of life until the end, and would probably live for 6-12 months. Both those claims were true; we had to put him to sleep after six months, when the tumor starting growing quickly. His quality of life was actually very good until his final couple of weeks.

The treatments are certainly not inexpensive, and, although miracles occasionally happen, our outcome was about the best we could have hoped for. Dr.
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
was very empathetic, and insisted that a good quality of life was of primary importance, while using the latest evidence-based science to attempt to slow the cancer. We achieved both goals. Our cat was taken for radiation treatment to the
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
office in
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
(
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Lakes Blvd), and for chemotherapy to their office in Clearwater, where Dr
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
has office hours on Thursdays. The veterinary assistants seemed extremely competent, and one named
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
was especially nice to us in Clearwater.

This veterinary practice handles only emergency and specialty medicine (like oncology), and thus sees the sickest patients, often with poor prognoses. This is also THE most expensive kind of veterinary treatment, but if your pet(s) means as much (or more) to you than your children, you will bring them here. There are many many doctors on staff, and I can't vouch for all of them, but Dr.
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, and
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and others did right by us, and we are grateful for the extra quality time we had with our little boy. It's a tough decision any way you turn, but if you have the money, it's worth spending. And our doctor, at least, gave us enough information to make informed decisions about treatment.

The doctor and staff are very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The prices are much better than the other vets we have been to since our long time vet retired. The doctor showed us around his facility and I was very impressed with the advanced equipment he has and the cleanliness of the facility.I also liked how they had 2 separate sides to the office so we could get out without going by other dogs that were in the office. I would highly reccomend this vet.

My cat has a seizure yesterday and was in shock due to his diabetes insulin meds. I took him to his normal vet on the afternoon of December 1st and they stabilized his blood
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
. To be safe, since they closed at 6pm they felt it would be best if I took him to an overnight facility to continue to monitor his
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
so he did not have another attack. They suggested this place. My vet called them and said all they needed to do was keep an eye on him, maybe check his
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
one more time in the night and feed him. The quote from this place? $550 to $700. I said, what are you kidding me? This place was ready to rack me over the coals just because I was upset and my cat was not well. I said I can't pay that. They came back with $250. I took it because what else could I do. But really, how did the bill go from $700 to $250? Also when I arrived at 6am to pick him up, there was one employee there, no vet, and she came to let me in with hair disheveled, clearly she had been sleeping and not keeping an eye on my cat. don't go to this place unless you have nowhere else to go.

Considering the gravity of the service requested Dr.
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is one of the most caring and professional service providers out there. She took the time to prepare us for the interaction and was able to allow our loved pet pass with dignity and respect. We could not have chosen a better person for helping us with the worst. Thank you very much Dr.

Pet dog had diarhea and vomiting. They squeezed me in for an appointment for which I was grateful. Doctor
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
gave my dog 2 shots (antiobiotics and anti nausea/vomiting) and some antibiotic (Baytril) pills to take home. The techs performed a fecal exam and Dr.
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
checked the dog over. The cost was around 125 bucs. The
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
given above are including other experiences for this one over-all was an A. THe reason for the lower rating in "responsivenes" and "punctuality" categories are associated with previous experiences ordering meds and having meds and perscriptions ready when I arrive to pick them up. I have been taking my pets here for years. All the vets and techs are nice.The problem has only been with ordering meds and getting scripts. I can order meds even two days in advance and they are still not ready often times. SOmetimes I need a new script and it is not ready and no vet is there so I have to wait. This is very frustrating with a full time job and two businesses and sometimes short on time. One of the techs even chuckled. "we never have your meds ready when you come to pick them up, do we?" Of course , I
Saint Petersburg Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
;t find it humorous when I called them in two days previous, just got off working night shift, have to sleep and then take care of business stuff. Now i have to come back or wait. This last time, the meds were ready but the time before I asked a friend with time to pick them up and she had to go back twice as they were not ready. Aggravating!!!! Another thing they don't do well is look ahead in the pets chart. I have two dogs on heart meds. These dogs hate riding in car and are freaky. I want to expose them to the ride as little as possible. So I had to do yearly check up to get new heart meds. I asked them to check everything as its a pain for dogs to come. The very next month I asked for a refill of a script and the tech said I had TO BRING DOG BACK IN TO CHECK FOR TESTS to refill after I had just had him in. I was furious!!!! Otherwise, these folks are great to deal with....

This was an ongoing problem and Northwest had referred me to a specialist a few months before. This was a re-check to see how he was doing. The vet was professional and personable and took the time to answer any questions I had. The staff there are caring and friendly. I have used this veterinary clinic for years and I would recommend them highly.
