I tell all my friends, family and coworkers to avoid this vet. The staff there is absolutely awful, and the vet's biggest concern is getting the most money of of the owner's pockets.
I understand businesses need to make money but there business practices seem a bit shady and they are not very forthcoming with the exact cost of anything!
When we brought our puppy to be neutered we were given an estimate of approx $400, which I understand is flexible because it was an estimate but when I advised them about a coupon I had, the price jumped by almost $250.
Avoid this place like the plague!

Unfortunately, the old saying ""You get what you pay for"" does not apply in this case.
For 14 years, our beloved family pet was a patient under this clinic's care. When he started exhibiting symptoms that suggested a GI disorder, the clinic repeatedly blamed the issues on ""food intolerances"" and ""allergies"" without testing or an office visit.
When the problem exacerbated, he was taken into the clinic and we were repeatedly told his age was to blame for his condition. Over the course of 5 days, he was seen by three different doctors and received three different diagnoses and prognoses while we watched him deteriorate. One doctor insisted that normal peristalsis visible on an xray was indicative of a severe GI disorder and that food was not making its way to the rest of the stomach. (An ultrasound and further xrays at a different clinic showed his stomach was just fine). Their final recommendation was to euthanize him and they had the gall to ask if we'd like a ""paw print"" made after he was put to sleep (of course at an additional charge)!
We sought a second opinion and discovered there was absolutely no evidence of either diagnosis the three doctors at Georgetown insisted upon. Unfortunately, we made the decision to seek more competent care too late. A week later, our beloved pet had declined significantly and was put to sleep. An autopsy revealed end stage colon cancer - not even remotely close to either diagnosis Georgetown insisted upon.
I would not recommend this clinic to anyone who wants the best care for their beloved family member. I truly believe that what happened to our family was avoidable and our beloved pet suffered needlessly.These doctors watched our beloved family member grow up. I expected them to have shown a little more compassion and a LOT more competence.
