I LOVE THIS VET. I AM FINANCIALLY STRAPPED. MY POOR DOG HAS HAD TO GO IN CONSTANTLY FOR CARE BECAUSE OF AN ONGOING PROBLEM. DR. KAMEL HAS GONE OUT OF HER WAY TO HELP ME BE ABLE TO AFFORD HER CARE. SHE HAS HELPED ME AND MY BABY THRU SOME PRETTY ROUGH TIMES AND IS ALWAYS THERE WHEN WE NEED HER. I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE ANY OF THE BAD REVIEWS. I TRAVEL ACROSS TOWN JUST TO SEE HER. MY NAME IS
CHRISTINE ZAVALA AND MY DOG IS MAGGIE MAY. WE DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK WE ARE SUGAR COATING ANYTHING OR IMAGINARY. THANK YOU DR. KAMEL FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS. I WILL RECOMMEND YOU TO EVERYONE I KNOW.
She misdiagnosed our 4 year old doxie who had cancer. He sat down there for 6 hours before she even saw him. Refused to do any exam on him or tests until she was paid up front. Her bedside manner was terrible. Her English is terrible..she kills animals. She put him on prednisone instead of chemo and ruined any chance for his survival. Awful woman. I wish her practice would shut down. Or someone would sue her so bad she would leave town. She cares about money. Not your pets.
This IS the vet for you!! Dr. Kamel has always been able to help me out whenever I have needed her services. I live almost 2 hours away from her and have six dogs, two cats and a few other misc. critters and no matter what time of day, she has always taken my call, even on Holidays! Once showing up after Church services, when she was closed (thank you ;-) to help my very ill dog. Not only has she helped me on more than one occassion, in desperate times of need (according to my family), but she has become a mentor. This is the BEST customer service I have ever received from ANY business. Considering I am a business owner myself, this goes very far for any consumer. I recommend Dr. Kamel and her great staff to everyone and chance I get!! She's worth the two hour drive!
After a Dr. at Bakersfield Vet Hospital advised me to euthanize my 5 yr old rabbit due to hind leg weakness, I was devastated...especially since this suggestion was made less than 3 minutes into the appointment and before his blood tests were even taken. 1 ½ weeks and $300 later, I was told that his tests were negative (thank God I didn’t take them up on their deadly offer).
I ran across Allen Road Vet on this site and despite the negative reviews, I called to get some info, and mentioned the negative feedback to the receptionist. She simply told me that everyone has their own opinion, but the only way I’d know is to go in and judge for myself…and I’m glad I did.
The first thing Dr. Kameel did was check his leg for swelling and broken bones and set him on the ground to inspect his leg as he hopped...surprisingly as simple as that may sound, it was not done at the other hospital. She then proceeded to thoroughly check him out and was honest enough to tell me that although she had an idea what the problem was, she was not 100% sure how or why it happened. Apparently her diagnoses was accurate because he was up and hopping a little within 3 days, which was more than he had done in weeks. In addition to this, she not only called to check on him, but she didn’t charge me for his visit or his 1-week check-up.
I couldn’t be more pleased with their over all compassion, service, care…and of course my lil bunnies results.
DO NOT take your pets to this vet. She has been known to be neglegent with your animals, and has killed a few with her practices. She does not know what she is doing, she demands money up front before she will even do anything to treat your animal. She is all about money. She doesnt care about the health and well being of your pet. She killed my family dog, treating him for an infection instead of cancer. Because she put him on the wrong medication instead of chemo she ruined his chances to be put on chemo for survival. Also, he waited there 6 hours before she would even treat him. She refused to even look at him unless we paid up front, instead of most vets when they ask you to pay when you pick the dog up. She is a cruel woman. Very unprofessional. My dog is not the only one she killed with her lack of experience and negligence.
