Top Vets – I have been taking my (6) cats to Dr. Bauml for the past 7 years. He is the best. :) Every Vet there including all the staff are wonderful, caring, compassionate and dedicated to helping all animals. I won't trust my pets to any other clinic.
Hopefully, someday I will be in the position to donate money to this clinic and keep this wonderful place number one in San Antonio forever. :) :)
Great Vets! – I have been going to St. Francis for about a year and I have never had them try to "up sale" anything! So that is shocking to hear. They are a tiny bit expensive, but very comprable to other vets. I am always able to get in quick and never have to wait long when i have an appointment. The staff is really warm and makes you feel comfortable.
High staff turnover – I was going to St Francis for a couple of years. It seemed everytime I was there, one of the vet's had left, until finally, only Dr Holab was still there of the ones there when I started. I had not ever been to Dr Holab and the vet I was seeing, who I liked very much was gone. I was concerned with two other vets leaving also, so decided to leave St Francis.
There prices are very high btw.
Watch out. – We adopted a dog from the pound. He was very ill for about a month. We first took him in because he would cough at night. The doctor said it was kennel cough. He got worse once we finished his medicine for that. He had snot coming out of his nose and his eyes. He wouldn't eat or drink. A different doctor said it was distemper and wanted to put him down. He already had his shots so we weren't sure if it really was. The doctor did say there was a chance that he could get better. Our dog had symptoms of distemper, but I couldn't bear to put him down. I was feeding him through a syringe for about a week. It was a very difficult time for me. We ultimately took him to the pound to have him put down, but we requested that they do everything for him that they could before they put him down. They gave him a nebulizer treatment, and gave him IV penicillin. That night he was a happy puppy. He was eating and drinking. As it turns out, the kennel cough gave him pneumonia. I do not fault the doctor for thinking it was distemper, but I don't think he considered the fact that it might have been something else, and he didn't urge us to try everything else. Our puppy is a year old, and is perfectly healthy. We still go there for their preventive care, and the staff is friendly.
The Vets here are awsome! – I complain that this vet is a little on the high side and I do not like the presumptive up sale. However, you get what you pay for. I rescue dogs and try to keep the cost down so I have tried several other vets . The service to my pets and to myself is far better at St. Francis then all the other vets I have gone to. They are always ready to fit you in, the wait time in the office is short, and most of all they treat the dogs I bring in with care & love! Watch out for the up sale. You will find yourself checking out with all these medications that were not previously discussed, needed or not. At that point it is just you and the person checking you out so I end up just paying and worrying about it later.
Caring, Giving People – I work with a local German Shepherd Resuce group. A beautiful purebred young male German Shepherd was brought to this clinic.......they did EVERYTHING to him, vaccinations, heartworm testing, neutering, EVERYTHING........and then placed him with our rescue group......He has since been adopted to a wonderful, loving home where he is the star of the show!! None of this would have been possible without the caring people of St. Francis of Assisi, and we are forever grateful. Thank You from the Bottom of our Hearts..............and I know Bear "Thanks" you too.
I will recommend you to ANYBODY I know on that side of town who is looking for a caring vet hospital.
Highly Recommended Vet. Clinic – I have been going to St. Francis-Assisi for 6 years. I have ALWAYS had wonderful service by the vets and the tech's. I have used their boarding services also through the years and have had nothing but great service. The front staff is very pleasant and helpful. I very rarely had to wait more than a 10 minutes past an appointment time in all of the times that I have been there. When my pet cat was put to sleep a few years ago, the compassion and caring shown by all the staff made it much easier for me (I had her for 17 years). I highly recommend this clinic!
MYSAVETDOTCOM – Ok, here goes, my experinces here, well i can start with, i started going there due to they were the only available vets to see my wounded dog at the time. my dog got mauled by some pitbulls back years ago. so i went there and they took by pet to the back and started treatments ASAP. Dr. Holub, Dr. Bauml, and all the great vet techs there were helping me and calming me down so i can understand what to expect and what i can do to help.. nevertheless Missy (my dog, toy poodle) survived the all the bites and lacerations on her..with the doctors there to help me treat at home and follow-ups, We got her all better. she is now 8 and i have 3 other dogs now and cats. I love these people. i know the staff has changed thur the years but the service and helpfulness has always been there. I know guys sometimes it's a pain in the butt to wait in a waiting room for 10, 20, 30 min but you have to think. these great doctors are treating each and every patient w/ care and thoughtfulness every single time they walk in the room. Just remember they are doctors, just like if we were to go to human doctor we wait a long time too.. I love this place..GUYS!!!
NUMBER 1 VETS IN SAN ANTONIO – My pets love this palce!! I have taken my dogs and cats to other vets and my pets seem to be freaked out just as soon as I walk in the door. Here they welcome the pets and take the time to not scare my pets and make friends so my pets don't mind going. The clinic is always clean and doesn't smell bad like some vets I have been to. I was even given a tour of the back when I first came by to check out the clinic, the clinic is great, they seem really up on all the new technology which makes me feel great about them seeing my pets. I have seen all the doctors and they all are very caring and tender with my babies and the receptionists know me and all my pets by name. I have been going there for over 5 years now and won't go anywhere else. The costs are no more then any vets I have been to and they do almost everything there so its well worth any costs for my pets to be healthy. The doctors and techs are really good about calling me back when I have questions and make sure I get the information I need. Over all I give them 5 stars and they are worth every penny I have and will spend for their services. Number 1 vets in San Antonio!!!
Caring staff makes me purrr.... – This is my first review so I hope this helps. Overall, this hospital seems to be above average in quality of service for the price and cleanliness. Once I had to wait 15 minutes for my appointment so the tech asked if I minded seeing a different vet that wasn't busy at the moment, which I did end up seeing. You can almost always get an appointment the same day if you have to and the doctors are really good about returning phone calls. The best thing about the doctors and staff is they seem to really care about my cats and are always sweet to them, and the early morning drop-offs and pick up after work are perfect for me.
