Success! Thanks for posting your review of Heart of Chelsea Animal Hospital. You’ve done the world some good today.

Really good vets

I recommended Heart of Chelsea to a friend, who checked the online reviews and told me she was hesitant to take her cat because of those reviews, so I'm writing my own.\n\nI have used Heart of Chelsea for about six or seven years, finding them after I had issues with another group of Vets. I wanted a vet that would test before automatically vaccinating my dog. Heart of Chelsea did and in fact my dog didn't need the ... view more

munchausens by proxy?

We fully expected to drop >300 for a check up, blood panel, rabies and distemper vaccinations. But they wanted to do tons more - blood panels that other vets said they order only rarely as well as vaccinations which were not necessary. They insisted that giving our cat Tagamet was not as good as whatever snake oil they sell and also wanted to do an x-ray because she spit up a furball. Again, I don't mind spending the... view more

all about $$$

As a first time pet owner I had no idea what my puppy needed. I got no explanations what vaccine she is getting or why all they said she needs them. I walked out with medication that was not needed at the time. Would not recommend, all about making money. I should have read the reviews before i went there.

Dishonest, money hungry doctors with a friendly smile.

If you want an honest review of this hospital, this is it.\n\nI am not going to complain about the price. We live in NYC so let's be real. NOTHING is cheap here.\n\nI am going to complain about the doctors. They are nice and friendly. But they view every appointment as an opportunity to make as much money as they can. As doctors, they should view each appointment as an opportunity to educate owners on how best to tak... view more

Lovely front desk staff and very attentive

From the minute I walked in to the hospital with my kitty Quincy, I was greeted by a smiling face and didn't even wait 5 minutes before somebody took me back to a room. The nurse that helped me was very gentle with my 16 year old boy and even offered him some treats to calm him down. Dr. Padro was just lovely and VERY patient with me. Since my senior kitty was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, I had lots of questions a... view more

Well educated, you get what you pay for

Yes, it's ""expensive,"" but still way cheaper than human health. You get what you pay for. They offer personalized service and know what they are doing. They talk on the phone as many times as it takes. They call to follow-up. They answer their calls. They are open late and on the weekends. Dr. Siebert is top notch, well trained, has a calming touch (no need to scruff my cats) and saved my cat's life when she had bl... view more

Poor, will take your $$ over and over

Don't go. This place did constant ""guess work"" to try and diagnose my dog. It cost me hundreds and hundreds of dollars, and weeks later, he is still suffering. I never had the same vet twice, always different, always guessing. Don't make the same mistake. Treat your dog well and do your research.

Worst Vet, dont' waste your time listeing to deceptive reviews!!

I usually do not feel compelled to write reviews for businesses. But I was overwhelmed to do so with the violation I felt at this place. I brought my kitten here that I adopted from AC&C in NYC. I came in for a FREE checkup that I was alotted. I was told to bring a stool sample. I now realize this is so they could make some money out of me while I was there. They sampled it, and found NOTHING wrong with it. Yet still... view more

Money, money, money

If you want to feel as though you're on an infomercial or in a used car lot, HOCAH is the place for you. I took my cats here for exactly two visits before I decided to transfer them to another practice in another neighborhood and never looked back. \r\n\r\nI thought Dr. Gabrielle was excellent, and the front desk staff was lovely beyond all words. However, I found Dr. Siebert to be somewhat cold, and I didn't really ... view more

Dishonest business practice.

I recently got a puppy and was recommended to Heart of Chelsea by a couple dog owners. I have been frequenting their establishment now for a couple months and I have serious issues with the way they conduct business. When you go in for a vaccination, they also give your dog a $60 health exam. After my puppy's exam(s), the vet then tells me that I should bring my puppy in for her second series of shots next week.
