Best Vet Ever! I wish i could give him 10 stars! – I have had pets my whole life, and Dr. Good is by far the best vet I have ever met.
When I first moved to SLC, I didn't know where to take my dog. I ended up taking him to a vet that was open on a sunday when my dog had fallen ill. This other vet clinic made me wait so long, not in the waiting room but in the exam room, they charged an atrocious amount of money for the simplest of procedures. After a bill of OVER $700 for treatment of gastroenteritis and dehydration and a quote of $700 for a simple teeth cleaning procedure, I decided to look elsewhere.
A friend had recommended Dr. Good at Alcor Cresta. Immediately I noticed a difference. Dr. Good was prompt in coming into the exam room, he was on the floor cooing and petting my dog. He even asked if my dog had any nicknames, so he would feel more comfortable. The dental cleaning was only $150! Dr. Good even recommended a way to keep my dogs teeth clean so i would never have to take him in for a cleaning again. Today my dog went in for a possible infection in his urethra, and Dr. Good took tests and found it was nothing, i was only charged for the office visit, not for the tests. I know if it was the other vet, I would have been charged probably double.
It is clear to me that Dr. Good is in it for the animals, not the money, as most vets these days seem to be. He puts the welfare of the animals first. I wish there were more stars, I would give him a 10!
Thank Dog for Dr. Good! – I first met Dr. Good about 12 years ago when I had a feisty little dog with a hard-to-diagnose skin condition. My previous vet had tagged her as Vicious and a Bite Threat - with a red-label folder. He wouldn't even get close enough to her to see what the problem was. She has never bitten anyone, by the way - just barked a lot. Anyway, when we finally met Dr. Good, he got down on the ground and talked to her like he wanted to help - there was no more barking, and he was her friend for life. I have taken my pets to him ever since, and will for as long as he will work! His staff is excellent, too - we love Mary's grooming and inter-personal skills.
Dr. Good and his staff are the best! – My dog LOVES going to see Dr. Good and his staff. Dr. Good has an instant connection with animals and you can tell he really cares for animals and is there to do whatever it takes to make sure your pet is well taken care of. Also, the staff is always friendly and knows my dog by name.
I have always been impressed with the groomers, Mary does such a great job and is very reasonable on pricing. Thanks Alcor Cresta for always making my dog and myself feel welcome!
Best vet in the south valley – We have been going to Dr. Good for more than Five years and we couldn't be more impressed with he and his staff. They always treat my dogs like family and he has the most reasonable prices in town. I highly recommend Alcor Cresta.
Up front, caring and very honest! – We were told by our former vet our 8 year old dog would need a $2500 surgery to repair a torn ACL on one of his back legs, we decided to take him to Dr. Good for a second opinion and we are so happy we did! Our previous vet made it sound like we had no other options other than surgery, they also did not go over the cons to having surgery. When we took our dog to Dr. Good he advised us the tear wasn't as bad as the previous vet made it sound and it was very possible it could heal with time, he also made us aware of the cons of having surgery (the quality of life could actually go down due to all the rehabilitation that would be needed). Dr. Good suggested we first try keeping him off his back legs for a while and giving him joint supplement, after two months our dog was using his back legs again with no signs of pain and no expensive surgery! We now take both our cat and our dog to Dr. Good, his prices are very reasonable and he is always very up front with what treatment options we have should our pets become ill. Also, we tried switching to a different brand of heartworm medication with our dog, unfortunately, he had a bad reaction to it. When we asked if we could switch back to the former brand they allowed us to give our new medication back and just pay the difference for the more expensive brand. I can't speak highly enough of Alcor Cresta, we are life customers.
Dr. Good is Amazing....just ask my Dogs. – I have taken my dogs to Dr. Good for 3 years now. I have been to him for multiple problems, and he has resolved them every single time. I have utilized his services for physicals, labs, illnesses, and also for the kenneling. Dr. Good always has playtime with the dogs. He gets down on the ground, despite my unexplainably hyper dog!
I had originally taken one of my dogs to another vet who said my dog needed surgery and it would cost me approximately $1500. Dr. Good did not feel she needed surgery and saved me $1500.
His staff are all friendly, and their prices are ridiculously reasonable!
I will go to this vet for LIFE!
Best vet I have ever known – My family was fortunate enough to find Dr. Good, immediately after our last rescue. I have 3 dogs and I feel like I see him more than some of my good friends. Not only are his fees reasonable (I feel guilty sometimes because I know he can't be making money) but, he truly loves animals. Some people are born to do something and he is doing what he was born to do. He has a 6th sense about animals and every single time my dogs have been sick he has been able to pinpoint why. All without running a battery of expensive tests. You can rest assured that he will never recommend something that is not needed. I can not say enough good about him because most people would not believe the praise I know he deserves. Honestly, I wish I could see him as my personal doctor. You just have to meet him and his wonderful staff to see for yourself you will be happy you did.
Femur Repair-Best Vet! – We took "Bart" to Alcor Cresta to see Dr. Good after having a bad experience at another vet. Bart was hit by a car, fracturing his femur, the other vet tried to repair it, and it failed.
Dr. Good had seen Bart growing up and we always thought he was a great doctor. So we took Bart to him for a second opinion on his femur. Dr. Good brought in an orthopedic specialist, and the two of them performed surgery on him again, placing more hardware to stabilize his leg, and doing a bone graft.
After all of this, they are now boarding Bart for three weeks to give him the best chance at a full recovery. They are doing all of this at a very reasonable price.
I've never been to a better vet. Dr. Good returns calls, explains things very well, and his staff is very responsive.
Nothing but five stars for Dr. Good and his staff. Easily the most generous and kind doctor in the Salt Lake Valley.
Absolutely the Best Vet in the Valley – Dr. Good has been our vet for years now. The first time I took one of our dogs to another vet for a change I was lucky enough to meet Dr. Dan Good. I went right home and told my husband that we indeed found our new vet. Years later we still agree whole heartedly that he is absolutely the BEST!
Dr Good is the BEST vet! – Last summer our 15 year old cat became ill. Being new to town we went to Dr. Good on the referral of our doggy daycare. Within seconds of calling to make the appointment we knew we had the right vet. We grew to know Dr. Good and his staff very well over the 3 weeks we spent trying to save our cat. Dr. Good even allowed us to bring the cat home to see if settling in to his old routine would assist in his recovery. When it became apparent that we needed to put the cat to sleep Dr. Good was amazing. His compassion and care during that time will always be remembered. We continue to take our dog, and now new puppy, to Dr. Good. His compassion and skills are greatly appreciated and we are thankful that we were referred to Alcor Cresta and Dr. Good!
