I met Dr. Lipari within her first week at the clinic. She has, through the years, been incredibly thorough in her clinical diagnosis of each and every one of my pets (and I am a rescuer, so there have been many). Her dedication and willingness to go the extra mile for her ""patients"" never fails to impress me. I am so fond of her and her staff that I am willing to drive from my new home in Sanford all the way to the east side of Orlando just to have her continue to care for my four-footed babies.

I have finally found a vet in the area who cares about the animals and not just a profit. I was angered after my past few vets wouldn't get my sick animals in because they were booked. They would refer me to the Animal ER, or they could make an appt 2-3 days later. \n\nDr. Lipari goes above and beyond and really cares about my animals. If it's an emergency, they get me in immediately. Thankfully, b/c I have had 3 emergencies in the past 6 months. She is very down to earth and explains things in terms that I understand. The staff is also great. \n\nI brought a stray cat in for tape worms that was afraid of all humans. It took hours to get her in a cage just to get her to the vet. After they treated her and watched her for a few hours, I went to pick her up and the vet techs were walking around with her perched on their shoulders. I was shocked.\n\nThis is the only vet I would recommend in the East Orlando area. \n\nKeep up the great work!!!

My dog, Coco was very ill, and had only seen Dr. Lipari a few times and he had become very ill, but she treated him with such compassion, and was very honest. He was critical and was dying. He had liver failure after only 6 yrs, which I felt was because of poor treatment by several vets which I won't name. They believed he had bowl syndrome, and kept changing his food, but that's beside the point. She recommended the Veterian Specialist Hospital in Maitland but explained all my options and costs that I could go through. I took him there in hopes he could be saved, but they couldn't save him, he only kep getting worse. They recommended I put him to sleep. I went back to Dr. Lipari and taked with her,and she was honest, but agreed that he was so far gone, and weak that I was only prolonging it. She saw my pain and said she would try, and try she did. She gave him blood transfusions, (which one of her techs volunteered her dog) to help me with the cost. She gave him IV's and he lasted about a week. I lost my best friend, but I know he had the BEST care he could have gotten, which helped me tremendiously. She is superb, and one of the most compassionate people I know. The girls in the office are fantastic!! They helped me through a very difficult time. Your best friend vwill be in the BEST of care with the Econ River staff, I know mine was!!!\nCathy

I took my dog for boarding there and all staff were amazing, my dog was so scared and they had a lot of patience and they were lovely with my baby. I have a mix Pitbull- boxer, he is very sweet and he was so scared, and the staff made everything to make him feel comfortable. Then I started to take him to regular visits and every one is so kind, ALL THE TIME!!! even when I saw other dogs there being mean, they know how to control them and how to deal without make customers feel bad about it. They have a lot of experience and I love everyone there.\nAfter boarding, when we picked my dog up, he was so happy and moving his tail to all staff, and ""talking"" to the staff the same way he ""talks"" to us when he is happy...Very good experience and the place is ALWAY CLEAN! \nLove it, love it, love it!!!\n
We left our 2 dogs their for 5 days to go on vacation and when we came back and got them home they were sick vomiting and diarrhea like you wouldn't believe!! We returned on a Saturday and figured by Monday they would be fine "nope" we called them numerous times on Monday and it's Thursday now and still no call back?? I guess you get what you pay for the fees were lower then most places and seeing their set up we left a lil' worried but with no choice cause we couldn't miss our flight. Trust me I'm not out to make that business look bad but WOW... maybe they will see this and call us back who knows... we will not be using their services again or even step on that property again in fear of bringing something home again to our dogs... so to all you who actually read the reviews don't take your dogs to this place trust me!!
Dr Lipari and her staff are just terrible. While they treated some of our pets well sometimes, they were uncaring, not kind, and negligent some other times. We were at first impressed with the doctor, but the past few years she had gotten really bad. At the end, she was too busy working on other projects, and selling her vet practice, to even care about the animals and acted in ways that were really awful.
The issue we had as well, was with the poor and rude attitude of the vet techs there and the staff. The females act nice and put on a happy face, but during really bad situations, they don't care at all, and are very cold and rude towards clients and the pets too. They take advantage of people in vulnerable situations. They can be very negligent towards animals and not care at all. They will let animals get worse right in front of them and not care or even apologize. They don't care at all. Some of the vet techs are a bit aggressive with the animals too. The people that work there are not good people at all. I compare them to sociopaths- people who have no conscience or remorse.
They will take care of your pets most of the time, but sometimes they may not care at all and have no emotion towards their actions. This is every single staff member there. I will never trust them with my pets again.
