Sadly i also had a bad experience. I took my 3 year old cat in because she had been under weather and obviously was not feeling well. Dr. Weddle did the exam...did her blood work...(which was fine) but informed me her heart rate was 99 which was low and means it is very important to do x rays and for him to consult with a cardiologist. I said this seems odd for a young cat that has never been sick a day before this. I asked for cost of this and they brought back an estimate from 385.00 to 435.00. I said i wanted to call the breeder in San Diego i got her from a year prior (whose husband is also a vet) as this seemed unsettling info. Dr. Weddle immed left office so I paid my bill for office visit and blood work and left. When i called my breeder...they asked for more info from vets exam including cats temperature which dr. Weddle neglected to take during exam. They suggested i go someplace else so today i went to another vet who did complete exam, informed me her heart rate was actually perfect at 165. He even informed me that a lower heart rate than normal is not ussually something you are concerned about. High yes, but low only if it drops to about 65. I got excellent information from the new doctor. If i felt Dr. Weddle was just being overcautious would be one thing...but because they really even bother to take my cats temperature...it does seem to not be proper care and more interest in high billing. I wont be back and suggest you pay strict attention to what is being done...or not done if you choose to use this facility.
Sounds like the other reviews had a bad experience because they think they know more than a vet and didn't agree with his professional opinion. I have had nothing but an extremely positive experience with every single staff member of the clinic and have been incredibly impressed with the care my pup receives.
I will never go back to this place again I have taken two of my pets there and will not do it again. Not only does he charge for things I said I didn't want done but was condescending the entire time and unapproachable. I wonder if he even enjoys working with animals.
