"Dr.
-
was unbelievable in her kindness and support. I felt very confident with her understanding and expertise and could not have worked" with our dog with any better guidance. She is a real asset to the behavioral medicine vet clinic at
and I would so highly recommend her to any and all individuals dealing with a challenged pet. In addition,
with their Honoring the Bond Program was also wonderful. We can't thank them enough.

"I've taken my animals to Dr
for several years now and I drive 45 minutes to do so. I've also seen Dr.
and one of the others," I don't remember her name. All were good but Dr
is why we've made the drive. I've never felt for the slightest moment that he was anything less that an outstanding veterinarian, I've never left with anything but the utmost confidence that I was being guided in the right direction with any issues we may have been having. That means a lot to a pet owner, and unfortunately it's not the case with every vet/every office. He seems more than just a competent doctor-- he's also kind, compassionate, realistic, not pushy, and he has taken the time to both check in on our little guys outside of appts when things got bad near the end, and to make sure we understand any issues clearly. Best of all, he seemed to genuinely love our animals, even our chihuahua who had a neon orange "WILL BITE" warning sticker on his folder. I'm sure Dr
was faking there but he never let on and that's everything to a mom...

"From the outset, we have seen both Dr.
and Dr.
about equally, though in some cases where one of our pets has needed some specific or" serious condition followed, usually one
or the other has taken the lead . Each has been incredibly responsive, empathic, kind, and knowledgeable. They have helped us in ways immeasurable over the last 13 years--phone calls are answered/returned promptly; scheduling regular or urgent visits is easy; questions are listened-to patiently and answered thoroughly. In total, we have had 5 dogs seen at this wonderful practice. PVVH has helped keep all of our canine babies healthy throughout their lives. Some have been extremely healthy, some have been less so and required specialized treatments...but ALL have been well-loved and well-cared-for by these amazing veterinarians and the entire PVVH staff. Drs.
and
have also provided us incredible support and kindness when our pets reached the point that we had to make that humane decision to bid them farewell. Overall, the practice offers excellent veterinary care and is connected to specialists in the event that referrals are needed. Not only are the vets and staff extremely professional, but they are also very personable and treat all members of our family, both canine and human, as if we were all part of their family. we've always been extremely satisfied with absolutely everyone and everything at
Veterinary Hospital--if I could give an A-PLUS rating, I would! So very happy for that original recommendation from our neighbor, and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone else in the area looking for solid and compassionate veterinary care for their furry family members. We're PVVH fans for life!

The vet took the time to explain to us what is going on with my cat when no other vet ever has. She was professional and competent and clearly knows her stuff. On top of that, she was compassionate and caring. Extremely thorough. Love her! We drive over an hour one way to take our pets to this vet hospital.

The provider ran blood work and talked to us. She was caring and
compassionate, but basically gave no answers and had no idea what is
wrong with my cat. However, on 9/26/14, I made a follow up call on this
cat and had the misfortune to have to talk to Dr.
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
or Went (I see he
is no where on their website so they need to fire him and not use him
any more). He was rude, unprofessional, uncaring, dispassionate and
incompetent. He told me my cat was in end stage renal failure and over
and over said she is 17 years old (like I don't know) as if she has no
value. I hope when he's 84, his physician cares nothing about him so he
can see how it feels. He insisted we come BACK in and spend another $400 on more blood work.
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and Behold, we took her to a COMPETENT vet and
she does NOT have end stage renal failure or even close. Horrible
experience and probably why this place has no clients. When i said, "You
just lost a client," his answer was, "Ok." That says it all!!!! At this place, it's all about the money!

Dr
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
is thorough, friendly, and caring. She took the time to understand the issues, and explain findings/treatments. Check-in and check-out for animals is very friendly, and the desk staff/assistants are really great at keeping you informed.
Prescriptions and special food are always available and quick to pickup.
...More /> When having an issue with one cat after teeth cleaning I received a call back within an hour following up with answers to questions. Services are always quoted, and I have been charged less than quoted amount which is appreciated.

Our dog

was a 10 year old beagle

that we had since he was 6 weeks old. He was diagnosed with osteo sarcoma early in August 2014 and passed away around 1am September 11, 2014. To say we were heart broken would be an under statement. Our vet recommended

and I called

like family and I would recommend her to anyone.

This vet hospital used to be great when Dr.
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
was the owner/lead vet; however, things changed when Dr.
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
arrived. While I will say that the staff and front office desk were always very polite and friendly, when I take my dog to the vet my main concern is getting accurate medical care, and this is where Dr.
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
failed miserably. I took my dog in because I found a lump on his side. Dr.
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
did TWO fine needle aspirations and looked at them under the microscope. He returned to the exam room and said that he did not see anything that looked abnormal to him and he claimed that the sample was "oily" which would lead him to believe that we were dealing with a fatty tumor. Less than two weeks later, the "fatty tumor" had become about three times the original size, so I took my dog to another vet for a second opinion. When he did the needle aspiration, he found lots of abnormalities, and proceeded to do a
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
ultrasound. The tumor had grown into his chest cavity. A biopsy confirmed cancer of the cartilage. The vet warned me that soon the tumor would either press on his heart, lungs, or trachea and I would know it. Less than a week later my dog was wheezing in the middle of the night and I knew what I had to do. Do not use this vet if you love your dog.

Excellent customer service, all paper work can be done on line. I called with a question & they answered it without any problem & encouraged me to call anytime, while my dog was there. Beautiful facility, clean , absolutely No odor inside. When I picked up

Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked

We have an old cat. A year ago, a growth appeared on its face. We took the cat to
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
clinic and were told by a doctor over there that it was not critical. We would just have to watch it for abnormality. Well, that growth kept growing, from pea size to a size of fingertip, and occasionally it would break and blood oozed out. Every time we took the cat back, we were told--by different doctors over there because we wanted a second opinion--pretty much the same thing. When we asked whether that growth could be removed via surgery, its doctors advised against it because of potential kidney problem due to its advanced age. But they never did anything to determine whether our old cat could actually handle a surgery. The growth continued. A few months ago, we had to relocate. In so doing we had to find a new vet, who promptly tested our cat for tolerance to a surgery, and once it determined that cat could handle it, immediately removed the growth. The whole thing cost almost $1000 but we didn't mind at all because that growth turned out to a form of malignant cancer. Once removed cleanly, however, we were told that it had a minimal
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
of returning.
We really felt grateful to the doctor at this new clinic!
At the same time, very disappointed with
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
clinic!
I had been taken my cat to
Altoona Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
clinic for regular check-ups and treating of minor problems for over 10 years. When we traveled, we put the cat for boarding over there too. Honestly, we had no problem with its doctors and services until my cat needed its doctors the most.
