DO NOT GO HERE.....these people are the ambulance chasers of vet clinics....They ran my bill up intentionally to over $430.0, taking 2 xrays for over $320.0....one xray anywhere else is about $125.0.....I made an appointment and went in on a Saturday.....I think they treated it as an emergency and overcharged me like one of those sleazy 24 hr. vets would....this was blatant over charging as any respectable place would have taken 1 xray and discussed charges before doing this, they must be on commission here.....
My wife and I brought our rabbit Holly because she wasn't feeling well.It was on a sunday, so the staff seemed like they couldnt wait to get out of there for the day. They ran tests on Holly and when she came out from the test she looked worse than when we broguht her in. They promised that they would force feed her, but they didn't do that. If the doctors cared they would have nursed her back to health, but all they wanted to do is go home. After all of that and $500. We brought her home and she died 10 minutes later. Before she died I called the office and they said that he behavior was normal. Then she died. I called back after she died. and they sent me right to Voicemail. A caring vet would have nursed Holly back to health. Me and my wife are hearthbroken about our little girl.
It has been my pleasure to be a client of Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital for over 25 years. Dr. Pribyl and his staff have been there for me and my family with care and compassion for all of our family pets. Even helping with the care of pets that weren't ours. Some of our pets have had some very challenging issues and he has been right there to help and to guide us.
Years ago my children would bring every single wounded (sometimes beyond wounded) bird, rabbit, or squirrel they found to Dr. Pribyl's office. They were Always so kind to try to help. I'm sure the office staff is relieved that we don't do that anymore. We are blessed to have such amazing people to take care of our pets.
