I have been a long time client of Dr. Darch and was very sad to learn that he is no longer with the clinic. The town has lost a wonderful vet! His years of unwavering service at all hours of day or night will not be forgotten. He was so practical, reliable and caring for my animals and for many many animals within the greater Wake Forest community. He will be sorely missed.
Highly Recommend!! – Dr. Darch knows what he is doing!! He has performed several surgeries for me over the years on several animals, including the removal of an eye due to glaucoma, removal of a toe due to bone infection, spay, ear crop, and cyst removal. Each and every one of those surgeries was done well and healed properly. They were also done at real world prices that were affordable especially in an emergency situation. Just recently Dr. Darch corrected a broken leg for me on the spot (same day) and charged me 450% less than what VSH wanted to charge me!! This practice does not require an appointment and is open on Saturday's. The staff is very friendly and have gone out of their way many time for me. I highly recommend Dr. Darch to anyone seeking knowledge and experience at a fair price VS. overly plush waiting areas and overly padded final bills!!
North Wake Animal Hospital – I have the greatest respect for this practice. I have been taking pets for vet care from Lee for 20+ years. Thanks for your continuing service to this community!
best vet around – best doctor in wake forest!!! dr. darch goes beyond the call and duty of a vet. the staff is also wonderful, would recommend him to anyone . dr.darch looked after my dog "chyna" for 13 yrs. and i would like to say thanks! we had to put chyna down on 10/2/11, and dr darch sent a sympathy card to us now how many vets would do that ? none, only the vets that really cares about animals like he does
Wonderful Clinic – We were referred to Dr. Darch by a very good friend and the compassion and care he provided to us and our pet is tremendous. I would recommend him to anyone who really cares for their companions.
The Best Animal Hospital in Wake Forest! – I can't thank North Wake Animal Hospital and Dr. Darch enough for all that he's done for me and my animals over the past 12 years. I've taken care of my animals over the years, from foster, my own and strays and he's helped me tremendously. I help out with the local animal shelters and I'm with a couple of animal associations and so I'm always taking in animals. It can become a lot sometimes especially when I get them and they have no history about them. When that happens all I have to do is call Dr. Darch and a lot of the time they animals that I take in were previous patients of his. He never has a problem pulling their medical records for me and helping me any way he can. I can go on and on about how wonderful he is because he is. He's a very giving veterinarian that has the biggest heart. Anyone one moving into the area that needs an animal hospital to go to go to North Wake Animal Hospital. Trust me you will not be disappointed. -S.B.
Best vets by far – I have been going to this vet for years. Dr. Darch has great prices, and he is very smart. He also has hired some pretty good vets in the past few years who have also never let us down. As for the last posting I just read, he may not be the cheapest, but still very affordable. I personally would chose a doctor based on experience and pay for that service, but I guess some people only care about money. And there have been a few times in the past years I had to use him after hours. I guess you get what you pay for, and he delivers way more than I have ever paid. Thank you for your service.
Leaving after 13+ years with Dr. Darch – I waited a month to write this to be sure that I was no longer upset over the situation that caused us to leave. I have never been treated worse by any service individual as I was here.
We have taken our cats and dogs to Dr. Darch for years. He may not be the most personable vet but we were always pleased with him and his care of our animals.
We decided to change though due to some of his new staff members and their lack of customer care.
We had to head out of town unexpectedly and our 4 dogs were due for their rabies while we would be gone. I quickly took them in for just their rabies,since we were leaving the next day. Finances were tight because we had to buy airline tickets unexpectedly so we just did the rabies, not full visits for them. I was told that was fine over the phone.
When we got home we only had 2 of the 4 tags and papers in our bag. I went back in that next morning and told them the situation. The girl at the front became very defensive, stating loudly that this was my fault not hers. I then asked for duplicates and told her They may have fallen out when I got out of my car. (I thought this would make her less defensive)
She became more upset and told me, "you have no idea how much work you are making for me" and coldly added, "and you only brought them in for rabies shots" Her tone was very critical. She continued to chastise me as if she thought I was an irresponsible pet owner.
She made rude comments on the number of animals that we have. (4 dogs and 3 cats - we live on 13 acres)
She made a lot of rude and judgmental comments in regard to the number of animals we used to have but no longer do. "You can't believe the number of cards I had to pull from your file. (8) She did not stop to see that they were puppies that we had in for their shots and had sold. She commented loudly at how many animals we "had gone through" The other customers in the lobby were just staring at her with their mouths open. I was in tears and asked for Dr. Darch. He came gave me duplicates in less that 3 minutes.
I don't know if she was having a bad day but her actions were totally unacceptable. We have voted with our feet and have switched vets.
Ironically, we have been going to Dr. Darch for so long because his prices were always so low. Now that we have switched, we realized that he is not the lowest. Our cats monthly allergy shots are 20 dollars less at the other local vet we are now with.
Best Vet in the Southeast – My animals have been under the care of Dr. Lee Darch dating back to 1984. He started caring for my horses in 1984, and for all my dogs as well spanning over the past 27 years.
His knowledge and dedication to all animals is the best I have ever experienced through my lifetime. His dedication to hold clinic Monday - Saturday is relentless, and every time I have had an emergency either at night or on a Sunday, Dr. Darch has ALWAYS met me at the clinic to care for my pet.
When I had horses and there were incidence of quarantine periods due to infections where my horses were not allowed to come out of their stalls unless accompanied by a vet in NC, Dr. Darch went every single day to my stable to walk my horses and give the antibiotic daily injections needed over a 2-week period. This is type of dedication and commitment is not find elsewhere.
He only focuses on small animals now, and I will ALWAYS keep my pets under his care.
Thank you Lee. I don't know what I will do if you ever retire.
Vet -Dr. Darch – We have been going to Dr Darch for more then 10 years. Dr. Darch has seen 2 dogs and 5 cats at different times. Awesome Vet! Very professional but laid back and very knowledgeable!
