Over priced, was quoted 129 went to pay 189? Hated the Vet I saw, wanted to cry when I left...and the parking forget about it!!! Never again
Charlottes Most overpriced Vet. – Providence is the most expensive Vet in south Charlotte. Did fine work but quoted me 308.00 for a standard procedure but ended up charging me 410.00 because they said they misheard me when they quoted me the price. Even without that the are very costly. These are the most expensive guys around and are no better. I don't mind paying more if I get more but there service and facilities are just average. If it is anything routine save yourself 20% and go to one of the other good vets around that aren't way over priced.
True Veterinary Professionals! – Providence Veterinary Associates has alway been my choice for my animals, Dr. Weeks being the Vet I am most familiar with. Aside from any serious illness that my pet might be suffering, it is always a pleasure to walk into a state of the art, immaculate facility and see the smiling faces of all of the staff. Everyone is friendly, patient and professional in every aspect of a visit.
Dr Weeks has treated my pets for surgery and on a regular basis for as long as he has been in practice and I have complete confidence in him and his staff to diagnose and treat my pets with expert care.
I highly recommend Providence Veterinary Associates and their staff to anyone considering a Veterinary Professional.
Excellent Veterinary Care – I have been taking my dogs to Providence Veterinary Associates since they opened their doors in 1993. At that time there was only one vet, Dr.Weeks. Obviously, as the practice grew, Dr. Boniquisti and Dr. Elliott came on board. Since I've known Dr. Weeks the longest, he is my first choice when making appointments. But things come up and I've had my dogs treated by the other vets. They have always received excellent treatment. Each of the vets have different personalities and it sounds like ncbonitachica was used to Dr. Elliott's effervescent personality. Dr. Boniquisti has a more clinical approach to treating your pets. I would and do trust each of these vets with my dog's life. As for the rest of the staff, they are all caring and consumate professionals. Also, I don't care if they fed my dog filet mignon, he still wouldn't think it would be fun going to the vets. He does appreciate the luvs he gets while he's there!
Excellent Vet Service – Providence Veterinary Associates has been taking care of my three pets all their lives, and they've only been seen by Dr. Bonacquisti. They have had better care all these years than I have received at times from some of my medical doctors! (I only wish Dr. Bonacquisti practiced human medicine!) He's is thorough, professional, and patiently answers all of my questions. He has brought my cat and dogs through some serious health issues -- including trauma injuries, neurological problems, and a heart condition. I'm not sure what the other reviewer experienced -- my pets have never had a need to be muzzled. Then again, my pets don't try to bite the doctor. And they love being up and down on things like our bed and sofa at home, so naturally they're fine with the exam table at the vet. (I can't even imagine asking the doctor to crawl around on the floor to examine a dog while the dog tries to bite him!) Our veterinary visits with Dr. Bonacquisti have never been anything but pleasant for me and my pets. I have never been less than fully satisfied with the services he and the staff have consistently provided to my pets and my family. I would never trust my pets with anyone else!
Poor Vet Service – I recently visited Providence Veterinary for my dog to recieve her yearly check up. Normally I see Dr. Laura Elliott and she is excellent with my dog. Well my last visit I had Dr. Joseph Bonacquisti which I felt either has been over worked or doesn't want to be in this line of business. I felt my visit was very rushed and he didnt spend adequate time with my dog to make her feel that coming to the vet is a good experience. My dog was muzzled immediately (she wasnt showing any signs of aggression i.e. snapping, growling, etc.). She was acting like any normal dog that didnt understand why the table was moving up. Here's a thought: you can always exam the dog on the floor 60lb dogs shouldnt be on tables anyways! I feel in order to build a relationship with the dog so they understand that going to the vet is a favorable experience more time should be spent paying attention to the dog. I dont even think a treat was offered. Instead now my dog has this horrible perception of the vet. Shots, therometers in uncomfortable places, muzzles, etc. So rather than just complaining about this I am also changing vets. I dont appreciate spending large amounts of money for my dog and I to feel we recieved nothing except pain.
Other than our experience with Dr. Bonacquisti the rest of the staff is wonderfull.
