This place is beyond great! I've been taking my dog to Cole Park for years. People who would post negative reviews tend to be more motivated to do so. Believe me, the silent majority loves this place. My dog is a soon-to-be 13 year old lab-pit mix who still acts like he's 2. There is no doubt in my mind the reason he acts like he does is because the doctors and techs take such great care of him. It's worth the hour and half drive to Chapel Hill to get him the best care available. My dog is family and there is no way I would accept anything but the best for him. I found the best at Cole Park. Can't endorse them enough!
First off, I have been taking my pets to Cole Park for over FIFTEEN years. After losing yet another family pet days after seeing the doctors at this "hospital," it is time for an honest review of this place--THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST VETERINARY HOSPITAL BY FAR. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR ENDANGER THE LIVES OF YOUR BELOVED PETS BY TAKING THEM TO THESE INEXPERIENCED ANIMAL DOCTORS THAT LACK EMPATHY!
I took my 17 year old cat to the vet because he seemed ill. Cole Park failed to treat him and he ended up dying because of their failure to provide legitimate treatment. Ran so many tests (including ultrasounds, x rays, UTI screen, etc.) and never provided any results or treatment.
These are my former vets. I quit bringing my animals to them many years ago because of misdiagnosis and overtreatment. They have since built a fancy new building, with a spa-like lobby and plenty of merchandise for sale. I picked up a lost dog off the side of a busy road, and took her to Cole Park as they were nearby, and I had my daughter in the car and could not take the dog home because I have my own large dogs there. Cole Park staff was rude, hostile, and refused to help me or this dog in any way. This is not a community-minded business, they are clearly focused so hard on the bottom line and their luxurious building that they do not consider the reason for being in the business, to help animals. There are many other vets out there, and in fact we have a wonderful housecall vet now that gives sensible, reasonably priced treatment with great compassion. I recommend that if you are looking for a vet, try a housecall vet before you take your animals to Cole Park. If I could give them zero stars, I would. Avoid.

There is no doubt that the staff cares, but if you're not a person who is able or willing to spend thousands of dollars on your pet, be aware. They will recommend tests, blood work, teeth cleaning... and it's your responsibility to do your homework and determine what is or is not necessary. They have a beautiful new facility, fancy specialty doctors, and they need to pay for it! If you are looking for a vet that will try to save you money, this is not your place.
I took my cat to see the Doc's at Colepark and I was so impressed by their caring and knowledge. My cat got acupuncture which helped to ease her stiffness and they have the most wonderful vet assistant ever. She was so good with my cranky kitty !! I am recommending all my friends here.
