Encino Vet is a great place to...

Encino Vet is a great place to take your pet. I have been going here with my cat for 10 plus years and have always had excellent service and treatment. The staff is professional, courteous and friendly. The doctors always take time to listen to my concerns - and are willing to deal with my "will bite" cat. The best part about Encino Vet is their groomer, Dawn. She is amazing. My cat is not the friendliest animal yet she always behaves for Dawn, which is a miracle. I trust them implicitly.

Quality, Friendly Service!

I have been going to Encinco Vet for 10 plus years and they are wonderful. My pet is one of those labeled with the dreaded ""will bite"" sticker, yet everyone treats my cat in a friendly, relaxed manner. The doctors are willing to listen to my concerns and the staff is great to deal with. The best part about Encino Vet is their groomer, Dawn. She is so amazing. My cat actually is nice to Dawn and behaves for her - and let me tell you, this is a miracle!



Great Animal Hospital

Dr. James is a brilliant person and doctor. The techs are great and I totally trust them with my animals. This is where I've been taking my two dogs and two cats for 6 years now. We have had surgeries and daily maintenance. I'm so happy to have a vet I can trust. They are the real thing.

Dr. McKinnon is awesome!!!

I share the sentiments that others have written about Dr. James Isaacs and do miss Dr. Mary Isaacs, however I am really pleased with Dr. McKinnon and feel that she saved my 15 year old kitty Sneeky's life. I love her disposition with the animals and she is very personable and I highly recommend her!

My favorite tech is gone

I went to encino with my dog to get a routine nail trim, They have this lovely tech their that always files my dog's nails so they are not sharp like with the nail clippers. When she came out she told me that she wont see me any more. that. this day was the last time she will see my pup and i ask her why.. she said she was let go, Some issue with the dr. Well I think this girl is great not only is she polite to clients but she cares about the well being of your pet. They made a mistake letting her go and for that i don't know what to think. Every one else doesn't seem like they care.. Seems like their only their for a pay check. And to find out by the receptionist that a tech that worked their years ago will be the new manager. This place is going to be a circus act and i want no part in it.!!

The wort PLACE in TOWN

This place is always dirty, you would think the Receptionist would at least be helpful. The one who's always given me a heart time is the
only one with brown hair. ( from all the blond ones) but they do have 4 really nice techs when I took my chihuahua in for nail trim. The nice tech brought my dog back. She told me that she field the nails so they don't have a Sharp edge. so when I have him in my arms he won't scratch me. It's the small thing that count . I don't remember her name but it seems she's the only woman tech they have. they Also have 3 other male techs that rock. They are very helpful and kind those three bring me back to this dump, because I know my dog will be okay in their hands.
Now the two doctors they have are money hungry they try to nickel and dime you for everything. the woman doctor doesn't seem confident in what she's talking about. She's always trying to sell
me holistic medication. And for the tall, skinny doctor seems like he's had too much plastic surgery. He's the one that what's to empty out your pockets. He feeds you a lot of info about anything that comes to mind, and then he tries to make money on everything. If you don't want to do what he says he makes you feel bad about your self. It seems as if he never reads the patients charts, just walks in and says oh you need 1,2,3,4 and when you tell i just did all that last month he blames it on his techs. MAN UP

In conclusion I stopped taking my dog their, I loved those techs but the doctor are crazy. Take your dog to a different clinic.

Professional-Quality Vet

I'm been going to Encino and Calabasas Veterinary Clinic (same owner) for too many years to remember. Dr. James Isaacs is fantastic vet who treats your pet as if it was his own. If there is a problem he has diagnosed issues where others have failed. He uses current medicine and treatment and has a staff that is also qualified and educated. If you are looking for a new Vet or need to switch, this is the place.

Dr. James Isaacs, who owns both Encino & Calabasas Clinics, is the most caring & brilliant vet out there!

great clinic, brilliant doctor

EVC clinic is a place where staff and doctors really care about your pets.
Caring takes you only that far in medicine.
Dr. James Isaacs is brilliant doctor and there are not many of those around.

James Isaacs is the best diagnotician ever.

ALL of the Vets at Calabasas Vet Center over the years have been wonderful. Very caring towards owners and animals. They have diagnosed problems when all I can say is ""there's something not quite right"". Superb skills and willing to make financial arrangements if the treatment is expensive.

Never Settle for Less!

I have been a client and friend of Dr. James Isaacs at Encino Vet for nearly 20 years. He is bar none the best veterinarian in greater Los Angeles. An absolute genius, he will do everything in his power to treat your animal with the most up to date medicine and as if it were his own. The staff and current associate doctor are likewise as wonderful. This clinic is for clients who want the best for their pet - PERIOD.

WOW its amazing how all the reviews sound the same

I know i had left a good review before....
but the more and more i went the worse and worst it got.
I don't understand how a crazy mad man can still be in business or even have the license to practice medicine.
I would avoid this vet. I was seeing dr. mary before.
But it seems as she has left the building who would blame her.
If you want the wort service in town you have come to the right pace. Just try it out for your self. Oh try to come in on time like 20 early because the receptionist put you in the room 10 min late and the Dr. doesn't walk in unit 30 later.
They don't even deserve one star!

Do not trust these people

I waited for nearly an hour to be told that if I didn't do everything they said, my pet could die unless I spent $2500. No options or choices were offered. Very arrogant and condescending jerks. I left and found a wonderful vet up the street!

Compassionate Care!!

I had a VERY sick pug, and wassearching for a vet that I could afford at the time. Dr Mary Isaacs phoned me and told me to come on in and that she would be able to work with me financially. That to me showsthat she is not at all about the money, and that she really cares for animals and will do whatever she can to see them get better. When I got there this morning,the staff was super-friendly, office was clean, she saw me right away, and seemed very knowledgeable. She's just awesome!! Couldn't ask for a more caring, loving, vet!!!

The very best

I took my very sick dog to Dr. Mary. She and her staff are very kind and caring. She spent an enormous amount of time reading the other vets records, having tests done that were necessary, phoning and comforting us. She diagnosed very quidkly what the old vets missed. She is just perfect.
