This vet is awesome! I took my dog here after she hurt her hip, and Dr. Hamilton is super nice! She was really thorough and personable during the visit, and my dog loved her. Will definitely be coming back here, and their prices really are affordable compared to other vets I called.
I read the bad reviews and I have to disagree. This is one of the most intellectually gifted women that I have ever met. She is not only passionate about her practice, but I wish she practiced medicine for humans. I think the misconception is in the name itself. "Affordable" means just that (she is not a county ran hospital), it does not mean FREE. I am sorry for those who think that owning pets is a cheap commitment. Any pet owner knows that Vet bills are not cheap and unfortunate for you there isn't "Medi-cal" for pets. [*Side Note* Veterinary School is not CHEAP!] So, why should she give her knowledge away for free when she paid handsomely to obtain it? If you can't afford it...well, you shouldn't own a pet! Then there are the reviews about the wait time...YIKES! I bet you had to wait because this doctor took in an emergency case at 4:45p.m. while she was already booked. There is a lot that goes on behind those doors, and I have had the opportunity to see them first hand. While your "regular" vet closes at noon on Saturdays, yeah, she is there till 5:00p.m...and she will see you...so quit whining that you had to wait (poor planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on hers. SELFISH PERSON!.) Or better yet, wait till Monday when your vet opens back up and I am sure they will work you in, or go to Animal Emergency where the prices I am sure are way more "affordable". We often over look that the professionals that care for us and are families also have lives too. I have often wondered how this woman does it by working so many hours and still giving her all the next day. I respect her as a doctor and know damn well she gets tired too. Treat her with some respect, because I guarantee that her and her staff will do nothing but do the best for your pet. I will forever use Dr. Hamilton. I will pay the fees, because I know the responsibility that came with owning a pet. So, show some common courtesy to a doctor who is the one getting the bad end of the deal by giving your pet her full professional opinion.... I can honestly say that you are getting top notch care at a decent price. I recommend her today, and will as long as she practices. Thank you Dr. Hamilton.
I just want to say thank you to Dr Hamilton and her great staff. You guys are fabulous so accomidating to the client and their pets. You guys never fail to show your love for each and every pet (& their human) when they come through the door. Thank you for being a such a wonderful and affordable place to bring our dogs.
We have been taking our pets to Dr Hamilton since she opened Affordable Pet Hospital and she is outstanding!!!!!! My husband and I would say absolutely the BEST veterinarian in Bakersfield. We have a very pleasant experience each and every time we take our pet into to her and her wonderful staff. We will never go anywhere else. If your looking for a great vet I highly recommend her and her staff.
I Have been taking my pet to another vet here in Bakersfield for years and just have not been satisfied with the results I have received from them. From customer service to the care of my pets. I decided to try Affordable Pet Hospital because I had heard so many good things about the staff and the doctor. I am so pleased with the level of care that we received! The staff is excellent and Dr Hamilton is OUTSTANDING!! She is the most caring and compassionate doctor that I have ever met and I have had several pets in my lifetime and she is the best!! This lady is knowledgable, caring and very easy to talk to she explains everything to you she wants to make sure you understand exactly what kind of treatment is nessesary if any. We love her and would recommend this doctor to to anyone looking for a great veterinarian in Bakersfield.
