I brought my dog Barley here for the first time to see Dr Byers for his annual checkup. He usually gets nervous, but Dr. Byers was wonderful and got him to relax. I think he actually enjoyed his visit to the vet this time around! She talked with me about everything that we would do that day, and offered me options based on Barley's lifestyle to avoid unnecessary treatment. I left from the office with a wagging tail beside me and a very reasonable bill for services. I'll be a regular client from now on!
These guys are great! I've been taking my pets to Burlingame for over 5 years now, and I've never had a bad experience. They are professional, friendly, wise, and extremely caring. Can't say enough good things - please give them a try, you won't be disappointed! :)
I have followed Dr Kellogg since we first met him right out of vet school, he has always gone the extra mile for us and our pets/animals we have never found anyone we liked more. I can't recommend him enough I've sent lots of people to him over the years and they have always been thrilled to finally find a vet who really listens and cares about our pets as much as we do.
Excellent Doctors, Fair Prices For Quality Care – We have been clients of this small clinic for many years and have always been happy with the care our dog and cats have received. We have been down the road of routine care and some pretty serious medical issues, and the thing that stands out most is that they truly care about doing the right thing for my pets without breaking the bank.
When our dog needed an infected tooth pulled under anesthesia, I asked some fellow dog owners if they had any experience with this. They talked about what they paid for it, and I was pleased to learn that Dr. Kellogg's prices were MORE than fair. And, he always has the best interest of the animals he takes care of in mind.
There is no clinic in town that cares as much as the people here do.
I really like Dr Byers - she cares and she is knowledgable, but I just can't afford to visit this vet. I was advised to do a urinalysis - which I wanted to do and was asked to collect the urine at home. Great, I thought, we can avoid another expensive vet visit $48 - ouch. I was charged $7.95 just for the little kit (a container, dropper and charcoal). REALLY? When I came back to drop off the urine - the receptionist asked me for $88 for the urinalysis. Are you kidding? It's hard to say anything to the receptionist - it's not her fault.
My suggestion - if you are going to charge these kinds of prices - let the customer know - have a price sheet. When I made the appointment I made sure to tell the receptionist that cost of treatment was an issue.
Maybe some pet owners do not bat an eyelid, but I want Burlingame to know that they are losing a customer. I just can't rationalize your prices.
If money is no object - this is a good vet for you.
My friends, the corner vet – I'm retired, and I've got a lot of animals. I've also got a lot of opinions about how they should be cared for--what I don't have is a lot of money. Dr. Kellogg, his wife Karen, and Dr. Byers put up with my eccentricities and provide the best care for my pack of critters. We have good conversations, When I had a big bill for work done, we bartered the balance away in exchange for my power-washing graffitti off his back wall. I have a farm background, and Dr. Kellogg indulges my inclination to 'do-it-myself", yet still provides good technical support. I consider them my friends, as well as my Docs.
Great Service, Excellent Doctors, Class Act! – This neighborhood vet clinic is truly a gem. From the moment I walk in the door, I am treated as a valued client and as a friend. Staff are kind and remember my pets by name. "Dr. John" (Kellogg) and Dr. Byers have seen our circus of pets, and are both personable and extremely thorough. They remember me, my animals and always make us feel welcome, no matter how busy they are. Dr. Kellogg has done surgery for our dog in the past, and he cared for her as if she were his own dog, the clinic mascot named Curly.
These folks really care about animals as family members, and even though we live closer to several other clinics, we would not dream of moving our pet's care.
Thanks to the Burlingame docs and staff for caring for our "kids" in a professional, comfortable and warm manner. I would trust them to no others.
Animal Lovers??? – How nice it was today to sit in the lobby getting yelled at by doctor Kellogg for questioning why he was charging me double what the original quote was! They have treated me badly every time I've been in and charged outrageous prices. On top of the audacity of this man, I arrive home to see that my pets nails are ALL cut too short and ALL BLEEDING!
Best Vets Ever! Dr. Byers is awesome... – What? Seriously folks, I don't know what the person who wrote the bad review was thinking when he/she wrote it, but Dr. Byers at Burlingame is wonderful!!! She is kind, compassionate, logical, extremely gentle, and one of the best vets I've ever had the pleasure to visit. Her true passion for the health and happiness of pets is *unparalleled* -- I have an older dog, and Dr. B's ability to treat this little guy with all of the love and care in the world is amazing. I don't write a lot of reviews for CitySearch, but when I saw the bad review, I just had to speak up! Everyone at Burlingame is great -- Dr. Kellogg is who we went to originally (we love him, too!), but we trust everyone there. Need a great vet clinic, where you and your pet will be treated with respect, you'll be given all of the options up front, and you'll be told the truth, every single time? Please visit wonderful Dr. Byers at Burlingame!
