  • Avoid Coral Springs Animal Hospital, Coral Springs, FL!!!!!!!! Brought my dog in for a laparoscopic ovariectomy spay as they are one of the few clinics around that does this type of procedure. They found tumors on her mammary glands, which after x-ray were determine to have not spread. The original spay was priced at about $850 and then the tumor removal added another $800. Due to the delay in x-ray, I was then told that my dog could not come home after the surgery and had to spend the night. I was not happy about this as a kennel environment causes her to be very anxious. They promised the would watch her closely. Came time to pick her up and I received a call from the vet saying she was limping on her back left leg. I was not happy! When I got there to pay my bill, the bill was totally different from what I was quoted. I was told certain things were part of the spay package and where now all priced separately . The bill was $2500! That took me an hour more to be reviewed by managers. All I really wanted was to see my dog! They finally got my cost down to $1700. It’s a good thing I looked at the bill as they only wanted to e-mail it to me. When my dog was brought out she was totally lame and would not put ANY weight on her leg. They had to use a sling to get her to my car. The vet said it was infection and offered to do more x-rays ( x-ray of the chest was $210 with a $99 radiology reading fee-WOW!). I was so upset, I said no thank you and left. I contacted my vet who indicated that an infection in the back hock following this type of surgery was not likely. She recommended I bring her in to have this evaluated. I called the Coral Sprigs Animal Hospital and stated that my dog came in totally fine and left lame under their care. The owner was not available and the manager she Lindy had an infection only. I brought my dog into my regular vet and had x-rays and cytology of the fluid in the hock to see if it was septic/showed infection. Another $600, but so much more reasonable with loving and caring treatment. Today I got the full cytology report which reads, “No cytology abnormalities”. So I have now spent an extra $600 for some thing that happened at the Coral Springs Animal Hospital and they did not offer to make it right or check out what was wrong on their dollar. Again, this happened when she was under THEIR care!

  • Dr. Furgang came to career day at Ramblewood Elementary school and gave a GREAT presentation! She spoke to 2nd and 3rd graders and the kids loved her! Awesome job, can't wait for her to come again next year! Thanks

  • Their rates are extortionate and they will not consider taking care of your animal companion until they are paid in full. They know full well that the love we hold for our animal companions blinds us to the outrageous rates they conjure up. As with most medical procedures, devices and pharmaceuticals in this country, the markups and profit margins are downright obscene. I was forced to charge nearly $5,000 for a one night stay for my cat, which allowed them to conduct many apparently useless, redundant, yet expensive, tests before charging nearly $300 to put her to sleep the next day. I still do not know what was wrong with her and why they could not or would not help her. I also have no way of knowing if they did, in fact, conduct any tests whatsoever or treat her in any way. Furthermore, they refused to respond to my written demand for a diagnosis, in writing, within ten days. If you cannot afford to pay thousands of dollars for dubious results, do not go to this "hospital."

  • For a single night, and before they would even admit her, they wanted between $3K and $5K up front. To this day, they have failed to tell me what was wrong with her, but they did claim that she needed to be killed the next morning. Speaking to other veterinarians and medical personnel, this animal hospital has a bad reputation: Extortionately expensive and uncaring about one's animal companions. I.e, their only concern is their profit margin. The only personnel I dealt with were apparently right out of college. The owners of the hospital are older folks, likely with much more experience, but they were not brought in to see my cat. When I complained, they implied that my issue was with their exorbitant prices. I paid in excess of $4,000 over two weeks at my usual vet and the one night at this animal hospital and I would have spent more if a competent vet would have saved her life. They all took my money and cared not one whit for saving my cat. I don't even have an indication that any of their incredibly expensive - and possibly redundant - tests were actually performed. They have the mistaken impression that I have forgotten them. I never shall and I will continue to warn people away from this hospital.

  • They are awesome. They have been our vet for quite a few years. We have had to put two babies down and they have been awesome. Very professional, friendly and really cares about the pets and the family.

  • In our community we had an orange tabby that visited often from a neighboring community. We named him Tom. Since he was a stray he was everyone?s cat. He was a welcome sight and was fed by the woman in the neighboring community  She noticed he was starting to slow down and he eventually ended up in the doorway of one of our  neighbors house a few days later during a rain storm. He was taken in and it was apparent he was extremely sick or hurt. Action needed to be taken and that meant finding a compassionate, yet affordable solution for him.
     Another neighbor, Teresa, set out looking for an animal hospital that evening that could help and was disappointed in the manner some answers were given to our situation from a nearby hospital. She left there and a short way down the road she found the PET EMERGENCY CLINIC .  She was given the information she needed from Dr. Sheila Boughton with care and compassion for our predicament and concern for Tom?s suffering. At that moment, she knew the few hours Tom may have left would be in the best possible care.
    Teresa came back to get Tom and another neighbor, Janet, went with her to the hospital. Once we got there we are greeted by Paige Obrig, the hospital manager. She was very professional and caring as well.
     Once settled into the examination room Paige confirmed our fears. Tom was indeed in bad shape. He was panting and was having a very hard time breathing. We believe he may have been hit by a car . She was also so kind as to talk by phone to the neighbor who had taken Tom in during the storm as she was very upset . She was hoping Tom could be treated and brought home to her so he could live with her and have a home. Unfortunately that was not the case. Paige was so comforting and helped to calm her down.
    Dr. Boughton came in and examined Tom and confirmed it was indeed time for Tom to be let go. As it turned out Tom was drowning in his own fluid and let us know we made the right decision by bringing him in. She was extremely compassionate and answered all of our questions and concerns.  It was very sad when we had to say good by  There were a lot of tears, hugs and an unspoken compassion for a little stray we named Tom.
    The service was priceless and the fee was reasonable and we highly recommend the PET EMERGENCY CLINIC  for all after hours care for our pets. We give them an A+ in all aspects of care and compassion. And we thank them whole heartily.

  • It’s good.  Their appointments are well regulated and we don’t have to wait too long when we go in there.  There’s no crowd and it’s not like a doctors’ office.  Generally we don’t have to wait anymore than 10 or 15 minutes before we’re called in and we go in with the cat.  A lot of places will take the animal in and the owner has to wait somewhere else while they examine the animal, but not here.  We go in with the animal, and he answers all the questions and everything else.  He’s very good.  He works alone, and his wife handles the front desk and the calls.  He’s excellent with quality.  He’s very good.  His punctuality is very good as well.  5.11 to 5.16.  We’ve lived here for 17 years and we’re not sure how long we’ve been with them.  If we find someone good, we stick with them.

  • We were told exactly what to do once we brought her home and all of our questions were answered.  It's been almost 3 months since she had the work done, and she has not had any subsequent issues.

  • Quick Info:

    efficient people who seem to put great effort in providing the best care possible.
    Long winded review - read on

    In my 47 years, I have seen many veterinarians - some good, some bad, some just plain ugly. After losing our husky girl of 12 years, we decided to adopt a new family member - another husky pup. Based upon what we experienced with our last vet, we set out to find the best doc possible within a reasonable driving distance. I even sought guidance from my cousin who owns three practices in NC.
    Note: Anyone who thinks that the quality of care offered by one vet compared to another should think again. There are a lot of doctors out there that, for whatever reason, do not put their all in to their work. And... It can be very difficult to find out if you're getting the best care possible. If you really care about getting the best care possible for your family member, go see Dr Abel Lera.
    My wife and I are very pleased to announce that we have found THE BEST VET in the area to take care of our new baby.
    Of the four people that we encountered, all were extremely nice, helpful, and seemed to love working there. Dr Lera has a very fun loving, easy going personality that creates a great working environment which you can see in the peoples faces who work there. This is not to say that people don't take their responsibilities seriously. Everyone seems to be very competent, efficient, and care about what they do.
    Reception:
    Upon arriving we were greeted with a very warm smile by a person who had everything
    prepared for our visit. The check-in process was smooth and painless.
    Wait time:
    Next to nothing. To me, this is a very good indication that a doctor has put great thought
    about the type of care that they are wanting to provide. If you've ever been to an office
    where the waiting area is packed, you get the feeling that they are more concerned with
    retiring at 39 than they are about providing the best possible care to your loved one.
    Environment:
    This is a very clean place - I mean like restaurant clean! Very comfortable as well.
    A very well equipped office that seems to have everything needed to treat whatever
    ails your little one. They have an underwater treadmill for crying out loud! The only
    thing I would change would be the sound that the waterfall makes in the reception area.
    Not for my sake because I think it offers a very tranquil and relaxing feeling but it's
    directly behind the receptionist and I feel bad that she has to listen to that all day long.
    Technician:
    Super nice guy who, like everyone else at this office, was very good at his job.
    Doctor:
    Don't think for a second that just because this guy is young that he doesn't have all the
    right answers. I wish that every medical doctor that cares for my family members would
    take the time that this guy does. He just gets it! I don't want to be rushed and feel like
    all I am is a path to retirement. I felt like I was sitting in my own living room as we got to
    know one another and he found out everything he could about our new puppy. He gave
    great advice and provided us all of the information that we were after and way more.
    Checkout:
    Again, all about efficiency. Cost was much less than we expected based on many years of service
    with other vets.
    Summary:
    Yeah, this is our first visit and you may take our thoughts with a grain of salt but, for us,
    even if everything goes half as well from this point forward... WE ARE HERE FOR LIFE!
    The efficiency with which this office operates enables them to take there time when
    delivering their care.
    Take it from me (an incredibly smart and perceptive guy)
    DON'T TAKE YOUR LITTLE ONE TO ANYONE ELSE - PERIOD!
    - Scott T.
  • I highly recommend Dr. Paredes to anyone looking for a vet.  She is very knowledgable, patient and trustworthy; her staff is very nice and the office is new and clean.  I trust her completely and she will definitely continue to be our vet.
