Was able to get a list minute appointment for a check-up. The staff was extremely professional and courteous, and the appointment was on time. The follow-up with the Dr. Johnson and the staff has been very attentive and easy.

I have known Dr Gelfand since 1985 and even though I have long since moved out of state, and even though there is one very good veterinarian near my home, I STILL drive to Long Beach, NY for any important veterinary work. After 27 years, Dr Gelfand IS STILL MY VET OF CHOICE and he becomes the vet of choice for our neighbors/colleagues/friends for major issues with their pets. Here are the attribut...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
All manner of veterinary services from vaccinations, to surgeries. Here is a list of services Dr Gelfand has provided for our dogs: 1. Vaccinations and services such as heart worm testing. 2. Spay and neuter surgeries 3. Radiology services 4. Shoulder surgery 5. Two hip surgeries 6. Pain medication for chronic arthritis 7. Allergy shots 8. Treatment for anaphylactic shock 9. Treatment or various strains and sprains 10. Lymphoma (cancer) treatment. And even though I live out of state and I use our local vet for "everyday" issues, Dr Gelfand will still either speak with me or email answers to any questions or concerns I have with anything to do with the dogs. Oh yeah, he also cared for the parakeets we used to have. And re cost (because great veterinary care is not cheap): All Creatures is not a "discount" vet office. While it is slightly less expensive to go the local vets, it becomes MORE expensive and aggravating in the long-run to go local and to then have drive to Long Beach, NY because your dog is still not right. All Creatures is equipped with state of the art equipment so that your best friend can receive the best care possible... You can always get an estimate beforehand, but also realize it is an estimate. I cannot put a price on the friendship I have with my dog. She IS PRICELESS!

I can't say enough about the patience and quality of care that the All Creatures vets have shown with our pet. They always take the time necessary to fully explain any issues and answer any questions. And since our case involved a life-threatening illness, at their suggestion, our pet was referrred to specialists in animal epilepsy. For all other issues, we routinely take our pet to All Creatures....

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We have used All Creatures for our dog Cal for over 10 years. Cal is a severe epileptic and has started having usual older dog problems with joints, legs, etc.

My Corgi mix has been going to All Creatures since we brought him home from the shelter. I found them always very professional and very responsive, even with their on line appointment system which very few providers use effectively. Teddy had a dental procedure performed last August and it went very well, he had no complications. He doesn't mind going to the office which I think is the highest rec...
