Greatful doggie Mom – Chloe and I thank our lord for BRAH .Monday she was near death. Immediatetly Dr.Toth and Dr. Simmons took over and started treatment. She was vomiting and had not eaten or drank water for 48 hours was totally toxic. Feared intestinal blockage total digestive system shut down. Today is Wednesday and my Chloe has started eating and has made a 100 % improvement. There has never been a more compassionate nor caring group of people. With everyone in this office loving and caring for each patient as if their own. Of this I am witness for I sat in the back hours holding my chloe and daily was so touched by the warmth and caring given to ALL their patients. God Bless you all at BRAH...Linda Flores
GREAT VET !! – EXCELLENT in every way!! I had been looking for a new vet for a few years when I came across BRAH while doing some research online. They were highly rated so I thought I'd give them a try. Understand I've been using vets many times a year since 1973 so I know when Good is GOOD, and BRAH is GOOD especially Elder Dr. Simmons who is my 'regular' doctor but his son Dr. Eric Simmons is also exceptional. On my first visit, my Shih Tzu just needed his third set of puppy shots. He had a terrible allergic reaction, the worst Elder Dr. Simmons said he had ever seen. I was terrified, not only did they save my puppy (I don't think my furbaby would have made it had we not been at BRAH), they consoled me and Dr. Eric Simmons talked to me through the whole thing trying his best to refocus my fear, and he did a great job of doing so. Their prices are very reasonable, I never have to wait to see the doctor, I can't say enough nice things about the staff, everyone is simply wonderful!!! I have been bragging about my new vet ever since the first visit and I have already referred several of my friends to BRAH. Thank y'all so much for everything and God Bless!!
Best Veterinary Office anywhere – I don't know what I would have done had I not found Burnet Road Animal Hospital. Dr. Simmons is a rare veterinarian these days, as he seems to care far more for the animals and owners than he does about making money! All of the vets are knowledgeable and compassionate. The staff is absolutely wonderful. I don't think there is another veterinary practice like it. I hate to think about ever moving away from Austin and trying to find another vet office comparable to BRAH. I doubt one exists!
Excellent Treatment, Staff, and Service – I bought a puppy about a year ago and was recommended to Burnet Road Animal Hospital by a close friend of mine. She has been a client of this clinic for over 15 years, regulary bringing her 3 dogs to Dr. Everett Simmons for visits. I have taken my puppy into Burnet Road since her first check-up, and have since visited the clinic multiple times. Not only have I brought her in to see Dr. Simmons for her shots and other small treatments, but I also had her spayed by Dr. Toth a few months ago and was extremely pleased with the results of the surgery. Each time that I brought my puppy into see Dr. Simmons, he was extremely personable, professional, and informative. Not only are the veterinarians superior, but the front staff has always treated me with respect, both over the phone and in person. I have always been greeted with a smile by the receptionists when walking into the clinic, and my check-outs have been quick and easy. The prices at this clinic are very affordable, too, which is a huge plus! In short, I could not ask for better veterinarians to treat my puppy, and I am so glad that my friend recommended this clinic; I regulary pass the word onto my own friends about the great service of Burnet Road Animal Hospital, and plan to take my animals there for a very long time to come!
Wonderful care! – I have been taking my animals to BRAH since 2002. I moved out of Austin for 18 months, and when I moved back, we stuck with BRAH. Most recently, Dr. Simmons has been a great help to our dog, Ruby. We were originally fostering Ruby for a local rescue group, but after meeting her, we knew she was meant to be ours. The day Ruby came to our house, we noticed something wasn't quite right. I took her to see Dr. Simmons who got her in right away that day. Ruby had a severe PDA which was something I was very unfamiliar with. Dr. Simmons was absolutely wonderful and was kind to me as I was a little bit overwhelmed and emotional! He educated me on the condition and referred me to TAMU where he believed she would receive the best treatment. We went to TAMU where we learned Ruby had additional congenital defects. TAMU was able to repair 2 with 2 different surgeries, but we've gone to BRAH for all of her after-care. Dr. Simmons truly cared about her well-being and helping find the appropriate treatments. Even when I go in now to pick up food in between visits, he asks about her. I recommend BRAH to all of my friends, and I would recommend them to any stranger. Not only do they provide great care, but they are also very affordable.
Best veterinary care anywhere – About decade ago, my friend and vet, Lora Pigott, recommended Dr. Simmons to me when she sold her practice. She told me I would do well with him because he is an excellent & caring vet, has plenty of common sense, and wouldn't "treat me like an idiot" as some highly educated professionals are wont to do. She was right: We still bring our pets to him for all their care even though we moved out into Blanco County in 2003.
About a year or so after we started going to BRAH, Dr. Simmons' partner, Dr. Toth, saw our elderly Great Dane, Hugh, as an emergency work-in appointment, ran an EKG right there in the office, and referred him to be seen immediately by a veterinary cardiologist at another Austin office. What a guy!
Kathryn, the office manager, is a jewel: She is understanding, helpful, and highly knowledgeable - Her years of experience show to advantage. I can never thank her enough for all she's done for us over the years.
Tracey and Marilyn at the front desk are wonderful: Both are sweet and accommodating with the clients and their pets. They leave enough play in the schedule to be able to work in an emergency if necessary. If this causes the doctor(s) to run late, they are very good about calling clients to notify them and to reschedule if the client prefers.
Finally, it is so nice to see familiar faces and be recognised when one enters a clinic. At many clinics, there is a high turn over rate, but not here - which speaks volumes about the quality of the doctors as both professionals and people.
Great vet hospital in Austin – I would like to share my opinion on services of Burnet Road Animal Hospital.I had been taking my cat to one of those vet chain hospitals for shots before and let me tell you- the difference between a smaller hospital and chain is HUGE. I had brough my cat to get her spayed to Burnet Road Animal hospital because I just hated the way I was treated in one of those big chain ones: long waits, huge charges, nurses and doctors kept changing every visit... In Burnet Road animal hospital, I did not have to wait at all when I brough my kitty in. Staff was very fiendly and answered all questions I had about an operation.Charge for an operation was very reasonable. Then my cat didnt feel very well- she had refused to drink or eat for a few days after surgery-she was treated by Burnet Road animal hospital like their own cat- they hand fed her, helped me with a bunch of very useful advices.. Today she is feeling much better- so am I . My biggest thanks to both doctors, Cathy, and everyone else that helped me to nurse my cat back to normal. I highly recommend this hospital as you and your pet will be treated like a family member- not like a customer.
The Best Vet in Cental Texas - Proven Many Times Over – I have been a client of Dr. Simmons for over 30 years now. I would not consider taking my animals anywhere else. Dr. Simmons is an incredibly compassionate, down-to-earth, and patient individual. He is truly committed to his profession no matter the circumstances or inconveniences to his private life. This man and his very professional staff have helped me through many an emotionally overwhelming situation.
Several years ago I referred a dear friend to Dr. Simmons for her ailing Westie who was slowly dying under another vets care. Her body was not able to metabolize a mineral in her food. Had she stayed with the other local vet - her baby - Ivey would have died from misdiagnosis. Dr. Simmons researched her illness and within 1 week (because she didn't have much more time than that left) had Ivy on proper treatment. As a result Ivey lived a long, happy life.
Most recently, that same friend of mine had to leave town on a business trip. Two of her 5 dogs got out while she was gone. Dr. Simmons was called by someone who found the two on the road. He, himself, went to pick them up and hold them until my friend could return. What other vet have you ever heard of going on his own time (over the weekend) to retrieve animals across town for a customer? This is indicative of this man's character and compassion for the animals. He is so incredibly intelligent and helpful. I cannot say enough about him except to advise all of those living in the Austin area who can get to him to do so. You won't be sorry! And your pet will get the best care possible.
the best staff in the world! – this is a great place to take your beloved pet.they really care about your pet-not your pocketbook!
Dog Gone Great Vet – I went to Burnett Road Animal Hospital after another Animal Clinic in Pflugerville kept billing me for test (for months) on my dog but could not find anything wrong with him - Wrong with him - His hair on his back had fallen out and he seemed to be in pain all the time. I paid them a lot of money for nothing - Went to Dr. Simmons and Dr. Toth at the suggestion of a friend and neighbor - In ONE VISIT - They knew what the problem was - A Cancerous Tumor. They removed it - His hair started growing back and I was able to enjoy my pet for another year. THEY LOVE WHAT THEY DO AND CARE ABOUT THE CLIENT AND THEIR PET. Reasonable Priced - Honest - Sincere - Go See Them If You Love Your Pet. Great bunch of people.
