We have been taking our dogs to Pharr Road Animal Hospital since we moved to Atlanta in 1980. At that time there were only two veterinarians (Dr. Petty and Dr. Tucker). We fell in love with the doctors and the office staff and knew we had found the right doctors to trust with our pets' health care. Thirty years later we continue to be impressed with the quality of care our four-legged children receive from Pharr Road Animal Hospital. They have nursed our dogs through serious illnesses and have done so in a caring manner that made us feel that they loved our pets as much as we do.
The combined expertise and experience of the doctors in this practice guarantee that your pet's problems receive excellent diagnosis and treatment. We are particularly impressed with the fact that they keep up to date with the latest treatment alternatives (including acupuncture).
The front office staff, the techs and the doctors, without exception, have always treated us and our pets with the utmost respect. Thirty years on we continue to have a love affair with Pharr Road Animal Hospital.

Exceptional Professional Care and Service
It is clear to me that one person has issues with this great practice and is abusing the internet with multiple negative ratings under different registrations. Anyone can have a bad experience. It doesn’t mean that this is a bad place.
My Corgi was limping very badly and another veterinarian had already suggested expensive ACL surgery. Dr. Winnokur and Dr. Nichols both examined my dog, studied x-rays, administered acupuncture and gave me a sound plan to rehabilitate my dog. We used minimal medication and no surgery. It was been almost 2 months and he is not limping at all. Dr. Winnokur called me to check in twice. I have always found the staff to not only courteous but very professional as well. I love that they use not only sound traditional methods, but also are up on newer, less invasive, natural methods as well There are several vets on staff and I would trust any of them with my pets. Although they may not be cheap, I felt I got great value for time and money spent there.
The office staff is unkind and patronizing to your face. When you ask to obtain your pet's test results, the technicians will read over the results, and notify you that only the veterinarians can provide the results. However, the veterinarians will NEVER come to the phone, they will refrain from returning phone calls, and will NOT see you even if you go to their office. I had to tell them that I will file a complaint with the BBB in order for them to get the doctor to give me the results. Furthermore, they NEGLECT to apologize for their errors and rudeness. Also, they charge significantly more than other clinics. They don't seem to care about the animals in which they are allegedly treating. I will NEVER go back to this clinic. They are awful!
The Vets at this clinic do not care about your pets. They only care about getting your money. The office staff are also obnoxious. They make pejorative comments about the customer and pet, even the office manager has is an unkind. The vets never return phone calls, even when promised! They wanted to order costly and invasive tests without a plausible reason to warrant these procedures. I have seen both the owners of the clinic, and they are awful vets. I would not recommend this place to anyone. They don't care about animals, only money

I will never take my dog back here. I took my dog to this vet b/c she seemed to have a bladder infection. The vet took xrays, urine tests, etc and came back to me, after I spent $300, with absolutely no helpful news. He suggested I take my pet to a specialist which could've cost another $800. He then suggested that my dog ""might have bladder cancer"". Of course after hearing that, I was so sad and very upset. I cried all day and spoke to my husband. My husband called the vet back and asked to re-test our dog. He did... and then found out it was a simple bladder infection!! First of all, I am upset that he even suggested my dog had cancer without knowing for sure and Secondly, I feel like they ripped me off! I will never recommend this place.
