Riverside Animal Hospital is the best vet facility we have ever encountered. Dr. K has constantly gone FAR out of his way to help us deal with our beloved Wiggy, and continues to do so for our sweet Lucy. The entire staff at Riverside is wonderful. Their kindness, professionalism, and enthusiasm are amazing. We were lucky to have discovered them through recommendations from several friends. Now we're happy when we get a chance to recommend Riverside to others. It is unbelievable to me that a major news source like the Post can get away with damaging the reputation of such a wonderful clinic. I truly hope that NYP is made to make restitution for their unforgivable negligence.

Our precious cats have been fortunate to be in the care of the Riverside Vet Group/Ansonia Vet. Hospital on W. 79th, an affiliate of the Riverside Animal Hospital on W. 108th St. We were appalled to hear about the recent irresponsible and devastating article by the New York Post attributing a tragic malpractice at a similarly-named but totally unrelated clinic in Washington Heights, to the Riverside practice on W. 108th. The craven journalism of Rupert Murdock comes closer to home! Because the 108th and 79th facilities share some of the medical staff, I want animal lovers to know about the quality of care given M and Q (names from James Bond!) over their many years. Dr. Freedman and the staff at 79th street have been absolutely fantastic in their professional care and their level of personal concern. As senior citizens, M and Q
They are simply the best!!! I have taken my animals for both routine and NOT so routine visits and the quality of care and concern is always the same -WONDERFUL. EVERYONE gives 110 percent. If you are looking for great medical expertise and really great people in all areas, Riverside Animal Hospital is the place for you and your pet. I wouldn't go anywhere but to Riverside>>>
Riverside cared for my cat Samantha compassionately and competently during the last two years of her life. They gave my cat Patch a healthy start in his when I brought him in as a scruffy homeless kitten. I would recommend Riverside Animal Hospital to anyone looking for quality care for their pets.
I moved to NYC almost 4 years ago and have been trusting them with my beloved Bubba's health ever since! Bubba can be quite difficult because he hates going to the vet but they are SO patient and caring with him. I trust them implicitly and recommend them to everyone I know!!
I took my cat to Riverside Animal Hospital for a number of years while she was being treated for CRF (chronic renal failure). When she finally succumbed to her illness (after many good years of managing the disease, thanks undoubtedly to Riverside), I chose not to take her in, but to have someone come to my apt. to euthanize her at home in order to minimize stress. When the hospital couldn't accommodate this, the staff was able to recommend someone else (unaffiliated) instead with whom they had previously worked--which was immensely helpful. I also received compassionate follow-up phone calls both while she was ailing and after she was gone. Frequency of treatment and associated costs are an understandable concern, and treatment wasn't cheap; but ultimately this has to be your decision--I don't for a minute though believe anyone there is in it for the money. They care!
My two dogs have been patients at Riverside Vet Group and Riverside Animal Hospital for years. I can honestly say that I have never met a more caring, professional and talented group of vets/techs/staff. They provide loving, gentle care for my dogs and have always provided different alternatives for treatment - explaining each quite thoroughly. I have never felt rushed or hurried thru an appointment - and I've been there alot lately! They have great follow-up - always checking in the day after a visit to ensure that the dogs are doing well and that I don't have any questions or concerns. I've tried other vets in NYC; but I would never leave this practice - they are by far the very best around.
I recently read with horror the article in the New York Post regarding Riverside and immediately called and was told it was not them and the matter was being investigated. I have taken my pets there for the past couple of years and they have been treated professionally, kindly and the staff is great. I'm happy the proper person has been identified.
Recently, an erroneous article appeared in The New York Post where the writers of the article failed to check their facts, and mistakenly assaulted the reputation of Riverside Animal HOSPITAL for something horrendous that unaffiliated Riverside Animal CLINIC was responsible for...a horrible example of unintentional slandering of the reputation of an outstanding animal care facility!
We have been bringing our littermate dachshunds to Riverside Animal HOSPITAL since they were 4 years old...they turn 16 in October. We give great credit for our dog's good health and longevity to the thoughful and competent care of Dr. Kasanofsky and his staff. Over the years, we have recommended Riverside Animal HOSPITAL to many of our dog friends...Those who have followed our recommendation have told us that from here on, they would not take their dogs (and cats) to any other vet. Riverside Animal HOSPITAL has developed a well deserved reputation for excellence over it's 20 year existence.
It is the moral responsibility of The New York Post to write a follow up article about the great work that they do, to counter the damage they have inflicted upon their reputation...an article that should be as large in SIZE as the article that mistakenly slandered them...it's the RIGHT thing to do!
