Horrible. The veterinarian was not friendly. They were so slow I waited over an hour to get in when they said it would be fast. Every time you go in they just try to sell their product so it ends up costing you a fortune. I will never take my animals to this vet again.
My cat was in the horrible throws of death. We had already been established clients there and when I rushed her down to put her out of her misery, they wouldn't even look at her even though they could hear her crying in pain. They wanted to do a full exam on her 1st even though they already had recently and knew this day was coming soon. Then I overheard them talking about me when they thought I couldn't hear. So I left and she died in my arms a few hours later. I've worked at several vets and never would we have handled a situation like this. They just care about business, not pets. ����
This vet is awesome! I took my dog here after she hurt her hip, and Dr. Hamilton is super nice! She was really thorough and personable during the visit, and my dog loved her. Will definitely be coming back here, and their prices really are affordable compared to other vets I called.
I read the bad reviews and I have to disagree. This is one of the most intellectually gifted women that I have ever met. She is not only passionate about her practice, but I wish she practiced medicine for humans. I think the misconception is in the name itself. "Affordable" means just that (she is not a county ran hospital), it does not mean FREE. I am sorry for those who think that owning pets is a cheap commitment. Any pet owner knows that Vet bills are not cheap and unfortunate for you there isn't "Medi-cal" for pets. [*Side Note* Veterinary School is not CHEAP!] So, why should she give her knowledge away for free when she paid handsomely to obtain it? If you can't afford it...well, you shouldn't own a pet! Then there are the reviews about the wait time...YIKES! I bet you had to wait because this doctor took in an emergency case at 4:45p.m. while she was already booked. There is a lot that goes on behind those doors, and I have had the opportunity to see them first hand. While your "regular" vet closes at noon on Saturdays, yeah, she is there till 5:00p.m...and she will see you...so quit whining that you had to wait (poor planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on hers. SELFISH PERSON!.) Or better yet, wait till Monday when your vet opens back up and I am sure they will work you in, or go to Animal Emergency where the prices I am sure are way more "affordable". We often over look that the professionals that care for us and are families also have lives too. I have often wondered how this woman does it by working so many hours and still giving her all the next day. I respect her as a doctor and know damn well she gets tired too. Treat her with some respect, because I guarantee that her and her staff will do nothing but do the best for your pet. I will forever use Dr. Hamilton. I will pay the fees, because I know the responsibility that came with owning a pet. So, show some common courtesy to a doctor who is the one getting the bad end of the deal by giving your pet her full professional opinion.... I can honestly say that you are getting top notch care at a decent price. I recommend her today, and will as long as she practices. Thank you Dr. Hamilton.
I just want to say thank you to Dr Hamilton and her great staff. You guys are fabulous so accomidating to the client and their pets. You guys never fail to show your love for each and every pet (& their human) when they come through the door. Thank you for being a such a wonderful and affordable place to bring our dogs.
