Just trying to give you a heads up. I never got to see the vet because they scheduled me on a Tuesday between 9 and 12... There is nowhere to park! They have a lot in back, but it's been full both times I've checked (and that's tandem parking full). So when you make your appointment, and you don't have a 36 parking pass, don't go on Tuesday between 9 and 12. Or bring a ton of quarters and keep running out to your car...

After my long-time vet moved away from L.A. I was desperate to find a new one as kind, compassionate and intelligent as she was. Two friends recommended Park La Brea Vets to me, and I went there today with my elderly cat who's been having kidney problems. From the moment I was greeted at the front desk by Francisco I felt right at home - and that my cat was in excellent hands. Dr. Rattan gave him a thorough exam, asking me all the right questions about symptoms and health history, and treated my cat with loving care. He suggested different treatments and made recommendations re: tests and diagnostics that were spot-on and smart. I just adored him. When I arrived, I asked Francisco for some paper towels so I could clean the cat carrier (my cat had peed in it on the drive there) and instead he took the carrier with my cat in it and cleaned the carrier AND my cat in the back room before returning both to me with a smile! What an amazing first impression . . . I am so grateful to have found Park La Brea Vets and Dr. Rattan, and feel good knowing that once again I have veterinarian care I can count on and trust.

I was so unhappy with my vet, I started searching out another. My neighbor highly recommended Dr. Rattan, who apparently immediately diagnosed my neighbor's dog with a kidney disorder that had gone undetected by previous vets for years. Although parking can be difficult -- the vet's office is on a busy stretch of Fairfax, and the back lot doesn't have a rear entrance for customers -- I immediately found the staff and Dr. Rattan warm, caring and extremely knowledgeable (without being condescending like my last vet). I have an 80-lb. Akita/German Shephard mix (my Baby girl!) who is skittish entering any new places. Dr. Rattan's assistant squatted down to pet and play with my dog, making her more comfortable in the doctor's office. Dr. Rattan was so nice, and he took the time to go explain all of the vaccinations my dog had. Since I had yet to get her spayed (I didn't trust my old vet, who recommended I take her to a doggie birth-control clinic -- As If!), he not only reviewed the whole procedure with me, but the potential risks. He provided me with a written estimate and didn't pressure me into anything. I was so confident with Dr. Rattan and his staff, I called back the following week and immediately scheduled my dog's operation. They took such good care of her, and they patiently answered every question I had. On top of that, all treatments were very reasonably priced. I've already recommended Dr. Rattan to 3 people, and they all were highly impressed with him and his staff.

Dr. Rattan is FANTASTIC!! I read a number of extraordinary reviews about him on Yahoo. As a result, I decided to take my dog to see him. My dog had a loose infected tooth with black all around it that did not seem to clear up on the antibiotics my prior vet had given me. That vet said the tooth did not need to be pulled. But, to me, it didn't make sense to leave an infected loose tooth that seemed to have a space where food could accumulate. And my dog was in pain. Dr. Rattan took one look at the tooth and said it was dead. It should be pulled so the other teeth would not be jeopardized. There was no hard sell though & as far as cost, he is more than reasonable. I was very nervous about the surgery (anesthesia), but Dr. Rattan & his staff (esp. Richard, who is also great) were extremely patient with me. They explained everything, answered all my questions, and handled my dog in a way that communicated genuine care for animals. I wish I had found him years ago. P.S. The surgery, and the aftercare, was a 5-star veterinary experience!
