Thank you Dr. Barone, Nicole and everyone of your staff for the love and care you gave to Kira. You guys are absolutely the best we could have asked for. From your front desk staff to the back room techs, you are all amazing. Unfortunately, we lost our Kira. The compassion that was shown at the end will remain with us forever. We love you all!
Titus and Hailey said you are wonderful. Keep up the good work.
I have had ENOUGH disappointment & utter feelings of DISGUST that have occurred from VMCLI & Here is my HONEST Recollection of SEVERAL VISITS to VMCLI: Prepare to wait a LONG TIME in waiting area & Exam Room before they even come and see you & your Pet, be treated RUDELY by the Receptionists in Person & over the Phone. The "Assistant" taking initial info in Exam Room, CONSTANTLY interrupts & doesn't really listen. You will wait DAYS for a Call back, if you leave a message for a Dr. OH, and then there's the ASTRONOMICAL FEES. Prepare to pay A LOT. It is SUPER, SUPER EXPENSIVE. I suggest if you do have to go to this unfortunate Practice, and need an Internal Dr., ask for Dr. Fondacaro. (Chief of Staff & the Best Dr. you'll get there) DO NOT GO SEE DR. SEAN HILLOCK. He is a COMPLETE, POMPOUS TOOL. Not only does he NOT KNOW enough about certain Medical ISSUES, and SIDE EFFECTS from MEDICATION, he lacks COMMON COURTESY, and BASIC COMMUNICATION SKILLS. He literally DISGUSTS ME & I wouldn't go see him if he were THE LAST VET ON EARTH. They're also a Referral ONLY Based Practice (where you need a Referral from your Pet's regular Vet in order to even get an Appointment-they won't see you otherwise), so you have to pay for a Regular Vet Visit on Top of seeing these Clowns. I will be searching for a MUCH BETTER place to bring my Pet. I HIGLY suggest you do the same.
I brought my cat here and was VERY skeptical at first of a feline ophthalmology department. However, Dr. LaCroix is FABULOUS. She is incredibly knowledgeable and caring when it comes to the animals.
My kitten had a lacerated cornea which was incredibly swollen. After a thorough examination the we were given medication and care instructions. There was a chance that the eye would have to be removed, however the least invasive method was tried first. The combination of medication and follow up care worked. The cat's eye healed (not perfectly and am not sure how much vision he has) and three years later he is a healthy active cat. After the care we received we were able to avoid a major and potentially life threatening surgery for a small kitten.
Yes it does cost money to visit this hospital (our total bill with medications was about 1100), however I did not feel like we were being ripped off and that the level of care was appropriate and effective. I would highly recommend this practice.
A huge Thank You to Dr. Barone, Nicole and the rest of the staff for helping our little Deliliah with her spine injury. They were warm and caring and made sure that Deliliah was taken care of! Lilith is doing great thanks to them
I brought my dog there after seizure in the middle of the night. I had no idea what was wrong or what to do the vets there were kind, professional, and took great care of my dog till I could get him to my vet in the morning. I was so pleased with them when a friend had an emergency with her dog I didn't hesitate to recommend this group for emergency care..they were equally pleased and this group saved their dogs life.
Thank you for helping Anthony. We knows there are such things as Angels!
Had an amazing encounter with the vet Danielle Wharton and the whole staff especially Dierdre . True animal lovers filled with compassion and understanding when we needed it the most. My heartfelt thanks, and everlasting respect.
We LOVE VMCLI! They are like family to us. Thank you for caring for our baby like your own. :)
