DO NOT GO HERE. – This vet does not even deserve one star because on March 30, 2012, our beloved pet and family member passed away due to Dr. Negrin misdiagnosing our dog with a "hurt back." He was given 2 steroid injections for "back pain" that he never needed. She never ran any blood tests or checked his urine. She kept insisting it was just back pain. Our dog lost over 10 pounds since his annual check up with Dr. Negrin in January 2012. She did not see this as a red flag and she simply told us it was because of his back pain. We also told her he was drinking a lot more water than he usually does and, again... you guessed... she told us it was because of the back pain. Finally, we requested that she run a blood test. She said she'd have the results in the next morning. After not hearing anything from her by 11:30 a.m. the next morning, we decided to take him somewhere else. The new veterinarian called Dr. Negrin's office to get our dog's blood results faxed over to them ASAP. To our SHOCK and absolute HORROR, Dr. Negrin NEVER sent the blood vials out to be tested. They were just sitting in her office the entire time. Our dog was sick for months with untreated diabetes which eventually led to his death. By the time we took him somewhere else, it was just too late and his organs were shutting down. We put our blind trust and faith in Dr. Negrin hoping that she knew what was best for our dog and we are left devastated over this. We hope you find this review more than helpful in deciding to take your pet elsewhere.
The vet is insane. – I admit I did look up reviews before coming here and I did see all of the negative reviews already on here. But I gave TLC Pet Doctor the benefit of the doubt. If you're reading this, please don't make the same mistake I did. Your pet might end up paying for it if it's for something important like surgery. Lucky for us, it was a checkup without shots. On that note, I would NOT trust this vet with a needle. Who knows whether she cares enough to keep track of what she's injecting into your pet?
This is a really bad place. I wouldn't recommend this vet to my worst enemy. Even one star is too high a rating.
My girlfriend and I got a dog recently and decided to go here because it was cheap and nearby. The secretary was nice, so we had a good first impression of the place. However, when we actually came in for an appointment, something about the vet was off. Just... not right.
Then we realized it. She's completely out of her mind. She goes on and on and on about stupid crap you don't care about. She told me something about how the town (union) is "plotting to get her", how some guy in a shelter sexually abused her, how "they" poisoned the water supply because everyone around her is stupid, but she drinks filtered water so she didn't turn dumb like everyone else. Then something about the town again, and then another thing about how stupid people painted a van the wrong color in some place she used to work.
I was flabbergasted. Seriously, what the hell is wrong with this person?
Meanwhile, our dog was just waiting patiently for the appointment to begin. The vet assistant holding her seemed like a decent guy, as far as I could tell. You could tell he cared about animals. Thank god for that at least.
After telling me all about her (obviously more important) life problems, the "vet" decided to go through the trouble of actually giving my dog her checkup. She spent literally 1-2 minutes examining her. Maybe even less. Then, after the 1minute $60 checkup was completed, she continued to tell us about her personal problems for the next 20 minutes. This time, it was about how her employees (the kind secretary and animal loving vet assistant) are stupid and making her go out of business because they're too slow to, quoting her "get the damn dogs in and out like they're supposed to." This comment really offended me. Not only is she blaming her workers for her stupidity, but she sees animals, and in turn our dog, as some money-making commodity that belongs on a conveyer belt. She doesn't care about animals. All she cares about is herself. I don't understand why this person is a veterinarian. She'd be more at home in a mental hospital.
I completely regret coming here. It's dumbfounding how this person is licensed to practice medicine. Almost scary.
Not only will we never come here again, but we're probably going to have to take our dog to another vet and pay another exam fee, just so she gets the proper checkup she deserves. We thought this place would save us some money, but it just ended up costing more. If you care about your pets, DO NOT COME HERE. Keep your pets safe.
Good Services – I had my Cat nuddered and he was reall taking care of.
