Apparently its a miracle that my dog is even alive according to Dr. Basta! He basically told me that everything I have been doing to care for my pet is wrong. I feed him the wrong food, I feed him at the wrong time of day, I use the wrong collar, and the heartworm medication I use is bad for him. WOW! Thats a lot to say about an animal that he knows nothing about, all in the first 5 minutes. Because of an incident with another dog that goes to Dr. Basta he offered to check out my dog for free. I dont know what his definition of free is but $225 and my dog is covered in iodine and still swollen. I am never going back there again! The one star rating is only because I had to put something, otherwise it would be no star.

My dog Lucky is 13 years old, and has been a patient of Dr. Amgad Basta for about 4 years. Lucky was bit by an insect, and started to tear the hair out at the sight of the bite. After consulting with Dr. Amgad Basta,
I administered the medication he advised me to give to her and in less than two weeks her hair was already growing back. Thanks Doc! Good Job!

Knowing what you want should be priority for every normal individual when taking out for help his/her pets or yourself(on general in life).
I, for instance, have desired veterinarian for my little baby girl dog. Not just any kind veterinarian, but the one who can create friendly bond with her primarily, so she wouldn't have to be in pain or stress when examined !
This was a huge issue to me because at other clinics, my 6lb (pounds)baby was often extremely stressed due to violent/ignorant examination....physically restrained to the point when I lost nerves and end-up taking her out(I did spoiled her and majority of veterinarians care mainly about getting job done fast and earning as much as possible$$$).
That wasn't the case at Dr. Basta's little clinic. He managed to create friendly bond with animal and have examined her completely without having to have to press her jars or using other violent(sick) methods used at other clinics. It was funny to see my extremely sensitive baby(cry baby) for the first time and always thereafter in a hands of expert(he is have passed Egyptian and American examinations for Doctorate and is therefore accredited twice) veterinarian who have managed her without her shaking, crying for help, complaining, attempting to bite etc.
Your love for animals dear Dr. Basta also didn't stop you from explaining and answering honestly and best to your knowledge all my questions(concerns) which I had(other clinics will attempt to profit with sales instead). Your prices were very affordable to us(better than at other clinics). Your staff are guys/girls whose lifes have been almost saved from failures as you have helped them not only with employment, but as well directives in life(continuing education & best advices).
You have kept them and they have learned to love their work even more through your unselfishness for animals and human being(I was told all his by your staff during my visits at your almost sanctuary what you have managed to create with persistence, hard-work, honesty, and love ).
There were cases when I have recommended your services to people who were unable to find cure for their pets at multiple clinics while extremely overcharged....I have sent them to you to find real answers and cures ! You did it !
Yes, you are friend Dr. Basta, and it was always honor to visit you with my little patient.
I don't live on Miami Beach anymore(I am in Seattle today, but next week in Europe), and small spoiled girl stayed with my ex. As I have had thoughts on her today, however, you have also crossed my mind(imagine how important are you guys to us not only when serving our pets, but even years after).
This is just to say thank you very much Dr. Basta and help understand people what they need...what they should expect and where to get....

I took my cats for their routine annual checkup and vaccinations. Dr. Basta Jr recommended a senior panel so I agreed since they never had one and they were 8 years old. One test came back a bit high on the liver count and he recommended x rays and an ultrasound which all came back negative. He recommended putting her on denosyl which I did. She started to heave and he recommended putting her on laxatone and when that didn't work he said to shave her. I had called this office several times, and he did not bother to return my calls. She continued to heave and I took her back for another liver test. The liver count was a bit high and he said it was ""through the roof"". He looked at her ears and said she was juandiced and didn't even exam her. She had lost a great deal of weight by this time. He told me that he would be telling me when it was her ""time to go"" and I responded I wasn't ready to give up on her yet. He suggested giving her something to stop heaving. I started her on that and she continued to heave. After the poor treatment I received from Dr. Basta Jr., I took my cat to an internal veterinarian and called Pets and Vets to send the liver test results to the internist - which they did not do. It took several calls from the internist to this office to get them to finally release these tests. The internist said that the liver tests were not alarming and suggested giving her antibiotics . I did that and after 3 weeks she started to come around and gaining weight. It has been about 6 months and she has recovered and gained weight and is her normal self. She is still on the denosyl and a little of the anti heave medication. Had I kept going to P&V she surely would have died. Dr. Basta is rude and unprofessional and didn't explore all available courses of treatment as the internist did and was wonderful. I spent a lot of money with Dr. Basta Jr. and almost had a dead cat. If you love your pet don't take it there.

We have received nothing but excellent care from both Dr. Basta and the staff here at Kind Animal Hosptal. We have our 3 dogs groomed here, this is where we take them when they are sick and we also have them boarded here when we go out of town. The staff literally knows our dogs by name we are here so often! Thanks all your dedication, you guys are the best!

Excellent, courteous and very knowledgeable service. Staff really knows their stuff!!! Doctor Basta takes as much time as needed to address all my concerns and answer all my questions. Office is very clean and comfortable. This was the first place I went to where I was treated with respect and made to feel a part of my pet's care. No hidden fees and no secret tests here. Everything was discussed with me and I had the final decision.

Dr Basta is arrogant and unprofessional. When asked about prices for a procedure, he said "" I probably did not have that kind of money to spend"" without knowing anything about my financial situation, he also went on to talk about Obama care and that I probably needed free health care because I couldn't afford insurance for myself . He was rude to the girl at the front desk in front of myself and other customers. The prices for services and products are comparable to animal hospitals in Miami.
I took my pet to Hollywood Animal Hospital where I willingly spent $1500. They are compassionate and professional.
PS: I do not support Obama care and have no problem paying for premium health insurance.

With all the horror stories I've heard about vets in the area, my groomer recommended this animal hospital and since she was so great, thought I'd give them a try. Dr. Basta is wonderful...he takes the time to care about you and educate you. You can tell he genuinely loves animals and my dog wasn't scared in the least with him or his great staff. He explained to me, in detail, about her infection....I was able to see the infection myself under his microscope, read about it in his book with him and he discussed prevention with me VERY CAREFULLY so I completely understood my dog Lucy's issue. He took the time to show me how to use the medicine and as I'm squeamish about the ears was even able to get the assistance of one of the tech's to come to my house and help me!!! (Don't know how I would have managed without his help!!)...........Super clean and super friendly staff and doctor.......my Lucy is feeling great and so am I.....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!
