I took my two cats to Dr. Rattan today for the first time and he couldn't have been more wonderful! Aside from being obviously well trained, Dr. Rattan's tableside manner was truly impressive. The reviews I read about Dr. Rattan's practice are what led me to take my fabulous feline monsters to him in the first place, and I am thrilled and relieved to report that the experience was relatively painless for all of us. No tears from the owner, no accidents from the cats (even on the way home - that's a first!), and no blood shed in general. Roberto, Dr. Rattan's assistant, was fantastic, as well, paying lots of attention to both the cats and being very gentle and caring with them. I will absolutely take my pets back to Dr. Rattan and recommend him highly to my friends.

I am sad to see the clinic go; Dr. Forbrich sold the practice. I heard whoever bought it is tearing down the whole block to build office space. Dr. Forbrich is the best vet I've had for my two cats. One cat had diabetes for 2 years and then had to be put down. Dr. Forbrich came to my house and spent over 2 hours with me and my cat until he finally let go and passed on. Her compassion always outshone the occasionally somewhat disorganized, but kind, staff. I will miss her as will my kitty!

I have two dogs and have been through many vets in los angeles. I have been overcharged, neglected and the vets have not been terribly knowledgeable or kind. Shenandoah Vet is the exception! Dr. Harris and Dr. Forlich are just wonderful. My dog just had a big surgery and they were very kind, supportive and helpful with treatment etc. Also, the place is reasonable - they don't nickel and dime you for every little thing. For example for a surgery, most vets charge you for any shaving they need to do - this place doesn't. Very happy and will be a long time client.

I have taken my dog to Dr. Forbrich for seven years and have been very happy with her care. Granted, the building is old; however, I found it clean . My dog receives competent, friendly and reasonably priced care. I never feel that I am being pushed into expensive or unecessary treatment. In the past I took my dog to one of the glitzy vet centers and felt coerced into complex treatment before the basics were considered. Dr. Forbrich has a strong personality; however, I have found her to be easy to talk to, thorough in her explanations and she has only the pet's best interest at heart. She is a hard taskmaster with her staff and so there is a fair amount of turnover. The primary person at the desk is terrific, but if you get one of the new people it can be a challenge to get what you need. And, sometimes getting through by phone is a problem - but it is worth the hassle!

I've tried twice to take my dogs to Shenandoah Animal Clinic and neither time did it work out. The staff is rude, the place feels smells bad is poorly maintained, and I got an all around bad feeling. Maybe the Docs are good, but I'll never know because the rest of the package was such a turn off.

My biggest problem with Shenandoah is getting through to them - after getting a busy signal 20 times I was put on hold for over 15 minutes. The receptionist was so rude, I cancelled my appointment and decided to go to another vet.
I've worked with Doctor Lilli and she is a good vet - she'd be better off getting a front office staff that would make a better first impression.
