South Boston Animal Hospital - Dr. Natalie Waggener – Awesome! South Boston Animal Hospital is awesome!
Dr. Natalie Waggener is awesome!
She is caring, she is calm, she is intelligent. She loves what she does! She loves her patients! She will go out of her way for you! She will listen to what you have to say! And her staff are very patient, and friendly. They will make you feel calm while you are waiting...
I highly recommend this Animal Hospital and Dr. Waggener. We lived in South Boston for many years, and recently moved to the South Shore, 20 miles away. My dog recently needed medical attention, and it was worth it to us to drive the extra distance to know that she was in very good hands.
terrible vet – We moved to Boston a few months ago and needed to find a new vet for our dog. We chose South Boston Animal Hospital based on reviews. We were not happy about our visit and will NEVER go back.
First of all, the wait time in the lobby was ridiculous. We were on time for our appointment, yet we had to wait over 1 hour to see the vet. We would have left at this point (probably should have) but needed to get our dog vaccinated.
Finally when we were seen, the vet did a quick exam, didn't really answer any of our questions, and then focused the majority of the time on selling us some expensive dental dog food. She went so far as to compare our dog's current food to "eating out of a trash can" (our breeder as well as our previous vet were the ones who recommended the food - saying that it was a good quality and inexpensive choice).
We found this vet to be really unprofessional and not knowledgable when answering our questions. Seriously, google did a better job answering our questions.
To add to the sense that this Vet's primary interest is in making money , we just received a post card in the mail with a reminder that it's time for our dog's 1st grooming appointment. Did they miss the fact that our dog has short hair and doesn't shed?
The only good thing we have to say about this vet is the office staff. They were friendly, professional, and helpful.
vet care at south boston animal hospital – excellent and detailed care by very caring veternarian.
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Waggener – I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Waggener and the South Boston Animal Hospital. I stumbled apon this site and just had to log in and take the time to write a review on their behalf. (She's that good) Dr. Waggener has been the most wonderful vet I have EVER come across. She is kind, gental, understanding, patient and kind. She is the South Boston Animal Hospital. Several years ago she left for a brief time and the hospital was not the same. I can't say enough about Dr. Waggener or her staff. Top notch! Excellent! You can trust your pets care to her.
Dr. Natalie Waggener. It doesn't get any better. – I bought a Dachshund puppy from a shady pet store in Lewisville, TX called Petland. DO NOT GO THERE. Dr Waggener helped bring Darla back to life. She had horrible kennel cough, coxcidia, and another type of worms. She spayed Darla yesterday and she is already feeling great. The entire staff is phenominal and they not only make you feel good about your pet, they make you completely comfortable with leaving your animal in their hands. I couldn't be happier with our vet. Moving to NYC in a few months and I will be so sad to say goodbye to the staff at SB Animal Hospital. Dr. Waggener, can you come to Brooklyn with me, Jake and Darla???
5 barks to SBAH – I have a nervous dog and Dr. Waggener does a great job treating him and keeping him calm and cooperative. Her "bedside manner" is great and she seems like she really cares about my dog's welfare. Parking has never been an issue for me (sorry South Boston Library!) and I've always been able to get appointments that are convienent to my schedule. I feel like my yorkie is in great hands and will continue to bring him to the South Boston Animal Hospital.
DR. WAGGENER IS THE BEST!!!! – I recently moved to South Boston with my boyfriend and our new puppy. I came upon the South Boston Animal Hospital and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Dr. Waggener is so incredibly sweet, caring, etc. She gives great advice and never seems to be rushing you out to get to her next appointment at all. Not only is SBAH lucky to have her, but the technicians there are so sweet as well! Every time I walk in they completely spoil my pup, and I'm so pleased! They give him hugs, kisses, treats, etc and his tail is wagging the entire time.
Dr. Waggener is an Angel – This is my first time post -- beacuse it's for someone I truly do like I feel compelled to validate the positive posts below.
First of all, I just had to say that I bet pet owners in Southie and all points local are very excited to have Dr. Waggener back at SBAH as the new owner and permanent vet :)
I would also like to tell you that Dr. Waggener really does care about animals (and thier humans). She has been my lab Sadie's vet for some time now... She is currently treating my in-laws dog Cody and has been incredibly compassionate to my family and attentive to Cody's needs at this awful time, and I am very thankful for that!
Please discount the post at the bottom: that man is the bad apple in the bunch. Dr. Waggener is the ANTI Dr. Kevorkian. I tell you, of all the vets we took our pup to (Neponset and Angell), SBAH is easily the most affordable. Not only that, Dr. Waggener is NOT afraid to refer her clients on to specialists if needs be. Dr. Waggener genuinely cares for these animals and is very experienced. I totally trust her and look forward to seeing her this August for Sadie's checkup :)
Not True HKADSFJ!!!! – Ok I just wanted to respond to the review made by Hkadsfj on here.I was in the hospital when he was in there with his dog that day and heard him say that he was going to post here and really give Dr Waggener a bad name. Ok well you know how they always say every story has two sides?Well here is my side.I was in the hospital that morning buying food and when I came in I was alarmed by a man's voice just yelling at someone as soon as I came in.Then I could hear a woman's voice calmly start to talk. From what I could get from the what was going on the in other room was that the gentleman's dog had tried to bite at the Dr while the exam was going on. In that case I am sure Dr Waggener tried to defend herself. So after this man just continues to verbally abuse her they came out of the exam room and he she asks him to leave.He is continuing to say that his dog never ever bites anyone.Ok again,I was there folks.He had a rather large white dog that must have weighed close to a 100lbs.And on the way out the door this dog that is never aggressive and would never bite anyone tried to eat two little dogs that were waiting for their appointments. He had to use all his strength to keep his dog from attacking them.Now this was a grown man having trouble handling a dog that never bites.If he has trouble handling his own dog how could he expext Dr Waggener to defend herself if he attacked her?Especially since he had the attitude that his dog could do no wrong.This dog was aggressive and the owner is in total denail about it. It's really sad that he has to come on here and bash her like that.It's a review like his that could sink a hospital and make her leave again and we would be stuck with all crappy vets again.Everytime Dr Waggener has seen any of my pets she has been just terrific, and so many of my friends in South Boston could say the same. She is a great great vet and we are lucky to have here in Southie. From my experiences she really does care about out pets!!!!
Dr. Waggener is the BEST – Dr Natalie is THE BEST veterinarian I have ever gone too. I have followed her to practically every vet hospital that she has been at because I would and could never trust any other vet as much. I have since moved out of state, but still make special arrangements to drive from Connecticut just to see her. She's amazing -- I have never met a veterinarian with such genuine care for my cats and dogs. If you have a chance, visit Dr Waggener!
