I've read all of the other reviews. They seem accurate but I would disagree with those that say that Hermosa is not a caring clnic. Having brought my dogs there for many years, my sense is that they fulfill their tasks with professionalism and warmth. I have had experiences with the support staff and the wait, but isn't the care the deciding factor? Dr Kurth and his girls are the best. I will continue to take my animals there.
HVC was referred to me by a family member after my own vet clinic was unable to help with my cat's problem, urinary tract infection blockage. They were able to diagnose immediately and give me recommendations for treatment. They were very helpful, knowledgeable, and less expensive than most other clinics/hospitals.
Dr. Kurth is my savior!
After dealing with another vet's inability to diagnose my mini-pin's knee problem, I brought her to Hermosa. Turns out they specialize in orthopedic surgeries and knee surgeries, so he knew exactly what he was talking about. Within a minute of having my dog on the table, he knew what the problem was (her MCL), and he knew she was going to need surgery.
At first I was skeptical, since this place is known for their knee surgeries. But then he let me actually feel my dog's bad knee, compare it to her other knee, then he brought out the model of the joint and showed me exactly what was going on. That definitely made me realize he wasn't joking, I could actually feel what was going on inside my dog's leg, and then see what was going on thanks to the model.
And yes, it's going to be an expensive procedure, but Dr. Kurth gave me his estimate, gave me his card, wrote down what she needs done, and told me to call around and get price quotes elsewhere if I wanted to. That made me feel like he wasn't just diagnosing my dog so he would get the business. He openly was telling me it was okay to go somewhere else.
And you know what else? He didn't charge me for the office visit. He felt bad that I had been to another vet and they couldn't diagnose her. He said any good vet would have been able to tell what was wrong right away, without needing X-rays, and that I shouldn't have even had to go see him.
Well, lesson learned, next time I'll give Hermosa my money to diagnose my dog, instead of paying someone else who couldn't give me a diagnosis then having Hermosa waive my fee because they felt bad that I got hosed.
Lastly, this place was immaculate. The entryway was large and spotless, the people in the lobby were all chatting with each other, talking about their pets, which made me feel comfortable. And the exam room I waited in had a huge leather chair for me to sit in, black marble counters, and nice (granite?) tiled floors. You'd think a visit would be expensive, right? Nope. To stop in is only $39.
Thank You, Hermosa!
I've been coming to Hermosa Vet Clinic for over 9 years. I used to go to another Vet that I won't mention, which was very expensive. I've brought all my dogs here, including my pets who have lived a long healthy life but aren't with me now and my parents dogs too Yes it is (sometimes) a long wait, but it's worth it, due to the affordable prices. And once I didn't have enough money to cover an emergency visit, they worked with me and gave me home remedies to take care of my dog. The staff is friendly and it gets a bit busy sometimes, to where the staff is trying their best to accomadate everyone. I love this place and I can't see myself ever going to another Vet Clinic. Hermosa Vet Clinic is affordable and convenient for my dogs and I.
Thanks for everything Hermosa! Dr Kubacki was so knowledgeable and made us feel right at home. We know our "kids" will always be in good hands with you!
