NE Animal Hospital on Frankford Ave, Philadelphia Pa – I have been talking my dog and cats to Dr.G since 1991, his prices are great comparied to other vets. He knows alot about dog and cats. I would recommend him if you dont have alot of money to spend on a vet. I would compare his service to the same as the service you would get at the SPCA.
Inside Scoop – You can believe this or not. My friend at the time was hired to work for these two vets here. The woman who's name is Vicky was rude and very harsh the way she handled most pets there. I was there to clean and feed the animals. And also had to hold the animals down while the Dr gave them in my opinion too many shots. Now there was a man who had a dog and the Dr kept giving the dog shot after shot. the guy replies' why all these shots? The Dr mumbled something I didn't even get at the time and that was it. The guy started gettting peeved and said don't be giving my dog all those shots. so the doctor walked out of the room and again mumbled something else. the guy shouted he wont be bringing his dog back again. I had seen many times this doctor is rough with the animlas he has no compassion and it's all about the money to him. I had to bring down many of dead animals in the basement in plastic bags, I was shocked! This place is not clean and "Vicky" who does the grooming is also rough; one day I sweeping around and made a comment about a dog who just died there he was a German Sheperd. She looked at me with such a mean look and said if you can't handle it don't work here anymore. I said oh I just feel bad he died' She replied and said he's fresh' whatever that meant and she laughed and walked away and told me to clean out a few more cages and get them ready. again in one day too many dogs and cats were put into bags. I got so sick of this and decided not to work there. This place is NOT for your pets so help me. this is the worse place, it may be close to location but I ask is it worth your poor pets life? Many of these vets treat pets like hell. I do know of one of them personally and that is Ghanim first hand. But I would try to look for alternatives. Either there too much or they are simply to rough and have no compassion. Hey it's your baby there it's up to you to listen or not but don't say you wasn't warned here. I know I had worked there for a year and that was too much after I seen the things I did. I have three cats and turtles I wouldn't even think of taking my pets there if they got sick. This doctor is CRUEL. Those little smiles are only a mask trust me.
My kitten died after getting treated by Dr Ghanim – I dont think that Dr. Ghanim is a really good vet. I always take my dogs there for thir check-ups and shots and i always get Dr. Giampaolo. He is a good vet and he is nicer to the animals then Ghanim. I had 2 male kittens that needed shots and to get fixed and my dad took the smaller one first because we saw that he had worms. Dr. Ghanim had used scissors to shove the worm pill down the kittens throat and he was acting violent with him. Then after my dad told him that we just wanted him to get shots and to get fixed he kept throwing in other things like declawing. When we went to pick up the kitten a few days later Dr. Giampaolo was there and he said that the other doctor had written declawed on the cats papers and was prescribing him pain killers. The cat was not even declawed. When my kitten came home he was really sick and he died a few days later. We had discovered that the kitten was nuetered and it had gotten infected while he was at the vet and he died. I do not recommend this vet and we are not taking my other kitten here either.
AVOID AT ALL COST – signed up just to give this place a rating and review.
- no bedside manners whatsoever - pushy and very rude
- cash only with no bill, no cost breakdown, no receipt - what the hell is that??
- did not provide treatment options for my demodectic mange dog and provided a plan that was ineffective and very costly
- dog experienced sideeffects that he did not notify me about after his visit
- developed kennel cough a few days later
avoid this man at all cost - i now drive an hour to south philadelphia to Philadelphia Animal Hospital (difference is night and day!!!!)
If you're gonna take your pet, make sure you see Dr. G. – i've been taking my pets to the northeast animal hospital for years, and though i admit, dr. GHANIM (if you're gonna complain about someone, atleast spell their name right people) can be a bit harsh, he IS capable. but i definately prefer Dr. Giampaolo. he's friendly, takes his time during the exams and gives detailed answers to your questions. he has a great bedside manner, very personable, and an all around great doctor who cares about his customers.
Great Vet for my two dogs – After a bad experience with a local vet by my home, I took my two dogs to the Northeast Animal Hospital and had a painfree and relieving experience. The vet there was able to figure out what was causing stomach problems in my two dogs which was a medication that was prescribed by another vet I went to last year. Dr. Gannon prescribed a better medication option and I have seen a world of difference in my two pups. He took such great care of them and was able to relieve me of my anxiety by answering all my questions in a kind-hearted matter.
I recommended this hospital to my friends out in King of Prussia and they loved their experience as well. They dont' mind the drive to Northeast Philly because they trust the care they get from Northeast Animal Hospital.
Learn Your Facts – I have to visit Northeast Animal Hospital regularly for my cat Spunky. He's 13 years old and has diabetes, so obviously his health condition and insulin injections are my main concern. Dr. Ghannon is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He gives me step-by-step instructions on how to give my cat his dosages and is readily available via cell phone in case of an emergency. The people posting below me, know your facts before you post spiteful and slanderous material on this website; his probation standing is due to a licensing paperwork issue that has nothing to do with his vet care. There are many people I know in the northeast area and beyond that will swear he's the best vet in the area. don't slander a good name.
Do not go to this place if you really care about your pets. I was looking for a vet in the area and saw the reviews about this place. This vet named Ghannim is on probation. I decided to walk in the office and asked if his records were in good standing and was informed by his helper he was not on probation.
licensepa.state.pa.us Heres the link .................he sure is on probation.
Warning: Do not use this vet, ghannon – This so called vet is on probation and is being investigated by the state. He only accepts cash as payment and if you are lucky you might get a reciept. nbc 10 investigators did a story for the news on him. the story is under investigators and archives. The title of the story is Vet MAKES CAT TOXIC. he claims he is been in this business to long to make mistakes....
Very experienced Vet for a great price/ great customer service too. – I took my 10-year old ill cat (Pebbles) to see Dr. Ghannon at the Northeast Animal Hospital after my workday feeling distraught by the idea of losing her. Another vet in my area told me that my cat most likely was suffering from a kidney tumor and that I should put her to sleep. Dr. Ghannon was able to diagnose the problem quickly and put her on a rigorous antibiotic treatment along w/ nutritional support because she was very weak.
He was very caring and gentle with her and he was able to answer all my sobbing questions and concerns in such a kind manner. Within two weeks, the medication was working and Pebbles was back to eating normally. He told me that she had an infection, not a tumor and he returned her to me healthy along with nutritional medicine to maintain kidney health.
My experience there was wonderful. The prices were comparable to other vets in my area and because of their flexible hours, I was assured that my cat would have constant care around the clock. The vet put a lot of emphasis on booster shots which is understandable given that many pet owners are lazy about vaccinations and booster shots but expect cheap veterinary care when their pets get sick. My husband and I are very pleased that our cat is now pain-free, eating normally and back to her old self.
