Dr. McElroy had been our primary veterinarian until our dog developed cancer. Following a diagnosis by a veterinary oncologist, we had our dog successfully treated. She was undergoing chemotherapy and had good quality of life. When it came time for her annual check-up, we returned to Dr. McElroy, who insisted that she had her annual ""shots."" At that time we did not know that a dog undergoing chemotherapy should not be vaccinated because her immune system was compromised by the chemotherapy. As a ""professional,"" Dr. McElroy should have known this. Our dog died within weeks of being administered the shots by Dr. McElroy. We took her to the oncologist one last time, who could not understand the dog's state of deterioration, given her previous check-up, which she had passed with flying colors. The only explanation was the shots that Dr. McElroy had administered, and from which he profited by charging the fees for them. Dr. McElroy operates a very greedy office.

I wish I had checked the reviews before taking my cat to Dr. McElroy. He recommended cleaning her teeth, which would have required anesthesia, risky in an older animal. I opted instead to teach her to let me brush her teeth. It took some time, but is much less risky.
My 3 year old German Sheperd, Zohan was experiencing intense itching until I met Dr. Singla at Ocean Ave Veterinary Hospital. I took him to several different veterinarians, because no one could diagnose his condition. Someone was diagnosing food allergy, environmental allergy, immune disorder. They put Zohan on several different kind of foods, and medicine. I ended up spending more than $3000 in vet bills. One day I went to Dr. Singla, he did one blood work for thyroid panel, first I was thinking not to do blood work because of cost, but when he told me all the signs of the condition that was similiar to Zohan's symptoms, I agreed to test for Thyroid function. Next day Dr. Singla called me without any delay that my dog has hyperthyroid condition and we started on medication for this condition. Again Zohan is feeling great and enjoying his life. Dr. Singla is great, kind and compassionate. I will recommend Dr. Singla to everyone. Thanks Dr. Singla!!!
