When our cat, Mr. Lucky, suddenly became sick, we were beside ourselves. He was an active, outdoor/indoor cat who loved to hunt. At 4:00 P.M. we rushed him to Dr. Riley. She ran a battery of tests and stayed after hours, as did her technician. After many tests we learned that there was fluid around his heart and his kidneys were shutting down. She taught us how to administer I.V. fluids and was honest about telling us what our choices were as far as taking him to a specialist, waiting until the next day, etc. It was an extremely heart-wrenching time for us and we beat ourselves up because we didn't pick up on any symptoms. Dr. Riley was quick to point out that cats are often difficult to read and continued to support us as we pursued his steps to recovery. I can't thank her and the staff enough for taking so much time with us. The bill was very reasonable for the tests, treatment, and time spent. Thanks!
I have taken my dog to Dr. Melcon for eighteen months. My first encounters with her were when she attended to his medical needs after being attacked by another dog. She immediately noticed the medication given to me by the ER was unsafe to manage my (breed of) dog's pain. She carefully listened to my concerns and offered advice as to follow up care. He is now healed and re-socialized with other dogs after having been "quarantined" for weeks following the injury to avoid infection. The insurance plan is great. I signed up upon my first visit. The plan had paid for itself within three visits (made within a month of first visit to follow up on his injury). I feel comfortable knowing my pet has a reputable and knowledgeable veterinarian, and will continue to take him to Dr. Melcon as long as I live in San Francisco.
A place where they treat you and your pet like family!!
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Riley and her staff. We've been bringing our dog Petrie here for almost 3 years and have been extremely happy with each and every experience. He's visited on several occasions for: vaccinations, picky eating habits, rumbly in his tumbly, and just yesterday.....flea bites. OH NOOO!
No matter how small the case may be, they are genuinely concerned for you and your pet and will go out of their way to accommodate you in any way they can. Dr. Riley walks you through all your questions and will explain treatment options and preventative care without overcharging or advising unnecessary procedures.
Marina Pet Hospital and Dr. Riley are very deserving of this five star review. We noticed our 12 and 1/2 year old Golden Retriever was going down fast and we called on a holiday and the staff was very attentive. We brought our dog in the next day, late in the day. The staff had a room with a blanket and some wonderful notes and literature about the death of a beloved pet. We were able to have a wonderful passing of our dog, the staff were compassionate and caring.
We were surprised to have such a sensitive and professional event around the passing of our Golden boy. Can't thank them enough.
Very impressed - my dog has stomach issues and is on the road to recovery. Dr Riley was very detailed in both her assessment and her explanation to me. When she sat on the floor with my boxer it seemed to lessen the anxiety my pet was experiencing. Her staff is also great!
ve been here many times now to get checkups, fecal tests, and fill out forms. Each time is a good experience, and my dog, Eevee loves it here! We go in and her tail wags like crazy!!! It's a completely different experience than my other dogs had at different vets. No tail between the legs or whimpering. Eevee remembers the staff here as the people who made her feel happy again.
I made an appointment to fill out paperwork, and they took me in right away. When the vet, Dr. Riley came in, she apologized for having me make an appointment just for paperwork. She gave her a quick checkup and filled out forms, and said it was free of charge. And Eevee left happy with a treat to make up for the thermometer!
They also explained each of the fecal tests thoroughly so that I knew what the results meant. Like the first time, they did what they could to save us money, and now Eevee is 100% healthy and parasite-free!
Also, when Eevee's best friend Izzy got attacked by a neighborhood dog, she came in with a big bite on her arm. The efficient staff at Marina Pet hospital took Izzy in as soon as she and her owners came through their door. They immediately told them to come to a room, sedated her and stitched her up right away. They did a great job, because Izzy only took about a week and a half to recover and she was already back at the dog park and playing with Eevee again! My friends (Izzy's owners) told me, "we are so glad we took there, they were awesome."
It surprises me to see anything less than 5 starts for both the DVMs and the office techs and staff. i have been goign to Marina Pet Hospital for years with my animals and have never received anything other than complete A+ service, kindness, compassion, and professionalism. they know me when i call, they know my kitty, and they get me in immediately whenever i have any health concerns. it can be pricey and people sometimes complain about the inhouse insurance, but it is a lifesaver. people have insurance and so should your furry family members. all the DVMs are incredbile and i would not go anywhere else!
My husband and I just moved to San Francisco from Washington, DC with our dog Sampson. Sampson needed a bortadella shot in order for us to start taking him to doggie daycare. I founded Marina Pets through a quick google search and gave it a dry. We were very impressed! The receptionists were friendly and helpful and got us an appointment for later that day. Prices are good - $63 for the first time visit plus $18 for the bortadella shot. When we arrived at the clinic, we were seen right away. Dr. Kim had a great bedside manner - Sampson loved her and was very calm. She answered all our questions and gave great advice. We couldn't have had a better visit. She's definitely going to become our regular vet!

I go with Dr. Wolfe simply because she was the first doctor I saw there and I never saw a need to change. So, I am not saying anything negative about the others. I just don't know them.
