I've had a good experience so far. They found out what was wrong with my cat and told me what my options were for the treatment of my cats ear problems. Her ears don't seem to be as bad as they were ( she came to me with this problem by the way) and she no longer has scabs and dried blood in there that I can see. I was even able to call and ask what to do when the first round of medicine didn't seem to work all the way and was able to go down and pick up the second round. As for the p...view morerice, it seems fairly reasonable considering that this place cost no more than the vet that my family has taken all of their pets to for over 10 years. As for the customer service/ patient care it seemed fine to me. I got all of my questions answered and was informed of what could have caused my cat's problem, where exactly was the problem, what we could do to fix it, and what kind of improvement we'd be likely to see from the treatment. I was also able to get convenient times for the appointments for her. I will be taking her back to this establishment for as long as I'm in the area and stay happy with the care of my cat and the customer service.view lessShare Review

We have great clients who care. Many people understand that dealing with public is not easy. There is value for everything you buy. It you get something very cheap is either stolen or you got nothing for your money. If someone waits until the cat get very sick then seek treatment, sometimes is going to be more expensive than you think. It amzes me that people do not compare Marriott to Motel 6 but they judge and blast vet care without understanding of what they are getting for their ca...view morets.view lessProvided by Citysearch
Bastet Cat Hospital has taken care of all my cats, and they have all lived to be in their late teens. Even my beloved Portia, who had a cancerous growth on a back leg. The leg had to be removed, but Dr. Basilious assured me that she would have a quality of life. She not only came through the surgery brilliantly, but lived to be over 19..with 3 legs. This practice is informed, sympathetic, and concerned, with state of the art service. I trust all my animals to Dr. Sam Basilious, and if ...view moreyou want the best for your cats, you will come here.view lessProvided by Citysearch
Not happy to see bad reviews about Bastet especially since we had such a pleasant experience with Dr. Basilious and staff. I guess everyone is entitled to there opinion, and here is mine. After my wife unknowingly ran over our cat while backing out of our drive way we rushed our cat to Dr. Basilious. We didn’t even know what happened at first, we just saw her laying there and thought that maybe she had a stoke. After the doctor examined our cat he recommended x-rays be taken to see if ...view morethere were any broken bones. He was right, she unfortunately had a few bones broken including her pelvis. So after the doctor explained to us our options in depth we opted to keep her hospitalized over night and have a specialist come in the review her case to see if she would need surgery. The following day the specialist consulted with me and informed me that she would do fine without surgery which we were very happy to hear. All in all our experience with Bastet, Dr. Basilious, and staff went very well.view lessShare Review
I recently went to Dr. Basilious after finding their website and reading such good reviews. I knew beforehand that it was not going to be the cheapest vet trip, but I was hoping it would be the best. Everything went well at first, the staff is very friendly and the office cats were comforting to my cat. I went in not knowing if there is a health issue with my cat or not, but hoping the Dr. could help me figure it out. He suggested full blood & urine testing which I agreed with, but whe...view moren the cost came back ($460), I asked if we could look at the treatment options again because I simply could not spend that much. They came back with a few tests ommited, and the cost was less ($280), but still a little out of my reach. The vet nurse said since my cat was not agressive and was only squirming a little when held, she could deduct $78 and omit the ""gas"" they give cats to calm them down when taking blood. I agreed to the price, but then Dr. Basilious came into the room and said he wouldn't do it without the sedative and then just recommended I change his food and to bring him back in a few weeks to see if there had been any improvement with no tests at all. If my cat was in obvious distress or in an emergency case I would take him back here because the Dr. does seem knowledable, but as far regular care he seemed to mostly care about how much money he could get from me. I now have to try and look around to find a Dr. that can test my cat for less than half of my monthly rent.view lessProvided by Citysearch
I found this hospital on-line and checked their reviews. I noticed many great reviews and a few sounding angry and hostile (because of the cost of the services.) I took a shot at it anyways being that it was a cat only hospital. My cat was having Diarrhea for 3 weeks. I had gotten her from the animal shelter and she had been spayed and got her vaccines there. She had tested negative for Leukemia and cat AIDS. When I booked my appointment at Bastet the receptionist was pleasant and in...view moreformative. She told me to bring any old records and told me the office exam was $ 55.00. They also informed me they have coupons available online, VERY HELPFUL!!
During the appointment, Dr. Basilious did a fecal test. The test said it was negative for parasites, but Dr. told me it could be a viral disease like FIP or Inflammatory bowel syndrome. He gave me several options, which the receptionist showed me in a printed estimate. He told me I could either just start with the fecal test or do complete blood/ urine test and also x-rays. I choose to add the blood and urine test because I wanted to know. He gave me some medicine and told me to call back in 2 days with an update. One of the Bastet employees called me the following day and told me to come back in (free of charge) to speak to the Dr. regarding the lab results. He explained to me that the protein level was higher than the normal levels. The diarrhea subsided gradually and eventually went away completely with medications and special diet. I found Dr. Basilious was really up front, informative, and gave me options. My experience was positive; I would recommend Bastet to all my friends and family. Although the doctor told me what I did not like to hear he was defiantly more honest and upfront than others and diagnosed the problem right away.view less
We adopted a feral cat three years ago. Her name is Scratch because of her poor appearance at that time. She is still cautious and unpredictable, and not at all friendly. She often attacks when someone walks by or trys to pet her. Dr. Basilious checked her over. I warned him to be careful because she easily becomes mean and aggressive. He wrapped her in a towel and picked her up like a baby. He spoke to her gently and she stopped moving. Dr. Basilious was even able to clip her ...view morenails (the first time ever), we were so amazed that I took this picture. Thank you Dr. Basilious.

Dr. Basilious is the best vet I've been to in the twenty years I've lived on the Central and South Coast. Other vets have missed diagnosing problems and have never given me the thorough explanations that Dr. Basilious does. I wish that my own medical doctors would take the time to answer all my questions the way he does. As the owners of four cats, all rescues, and three of them now elderly, we've been needing to take them this past year to Bastet for various health issues. We never fe...view moreel pressured to proceed with treatments and the doctor will often give us time alone to consider the options after we see an estimate.

I have a one year old Chinchilla Silver Persian kitty that I decided to have neutered. I wanted a place that was cats only, and it appears there really are only two choices remotely in my area (LA). I had heard through reviews and relatives that the other place wasn't as good as it used to be, so after reading the reviews of Bastet, I decided to investigate. I went to the hospital a few days ahead, to fill out paper work in advance and to get a feel for the place. It's easy to get to, ...view morehas ample free parking, and the staff was great.\r
When I brought my kitty in to meet the doctor, it was as if they were old friends. Dr. Basilious most certainly does have a way with cats. He has a no nonsense attitude, but it is tempered with his affection for the animals. My kitten's surgery went very well and healed beautifully, likely because of the unique way Dr. Basilious performs the surgery.\r
After having my kitten checked out thoroughly, we discovered that he has crystals in his urine. We are in the process of using a specially prescribed eating program to correct the condition. While it still lingers, he has definitely improved, and we are optimistic that he will be completely free of crystals in a couple of months.\r
I have seen a few complaints about the cost, and it isn't cheap, but the level of responsiveness and service makes it worth every penny. If you have a special cat, this is the place to bring him or her for very special care.\r
A big thank you to Dr. B. and his wonderful staff!view less
