Do not take a pet in crisis here!! My cat had hepatic lipidosis - this was clear as he had barely eatien in four weeks due to stress from a move and I communicated all of this to them - yet their concern was doing an ultrasound and running tests. After two days and $1400 they sent him back home when he was still not really eating. About 2 1/2 weeks later I took him to another vet who immediately inserted a feeding tube. My beloved kitty had to be put down three days later, but had Barton Heights done a feeding tube when I was there maybe he would've survived or at least have had a better chance.
I have been going to Barton Heights for about two years now. Today I had to take an outside cat which I been feeding to be euthanized. I felt so bad. The technician explained everything to me. She was so kind and caring to this poor cat. The vet who administered the injection was wonderful. They allowed me time to spend with the cat before the procedure. They were wonderful . I can't say enough.

I came to Bartonheights with my dog Roxy as an emergency. she was at creature Comfort for 10 days, I could see that they were not helping her. The staff a at Barton Heights took us right away, Dr Greenleaf, looked at my Roxy, told me she was in bad shape, and they would take the best care they could for her. My Roxy is a dieabetic. Well she was home in 2 day.doing much better. That was 2 years ago and Roxy is doing great. I tell everyone I meet that has a dog to go to Bartonheights Vet hospital. They saved my Roxys life. I went to Creature Comforts for 8 years and they almost killed her. I can never thank Bartonheights enough for saving my baby girl.
The staff at Barton Heights are very rude and the night dr (an older woman) has no idea what she is doing. We brought our 10 year old maltese in at around 11pm last week when she was twitching and falling over. They stood over us while we signed the consent paperwork so that they can bill us and the Dr ran an xray and blood panel. The Dr. had difficulty reading the x-ray and she said "I have no clue what is wrong with your dog". She gave me pain killers and gabapentin. I had to take my dog home when she was clearly sick. When I got home I decided to google the symptoms and came up with vestibular disease. I called the vet back to inquire about this and they said that that diagnosis was included in "other". I then asked why they gave me the wrong medication and she said nothing. I called another vet the next day and he told me it could be vestibular disease just by knowing the symptoms. I called Barton Heights back and asked to speak to someone higher up than the vet I saw. Dr. Wentz returned my call and was unknowledgeable and rude. I explained to him everything that transpired and he said that my dog did not have vestibular disease because it does not cause twitching or falling over. When you do a simple google search, this is exactly what it causes. All the stress from getting the wrong diagnosis and medication, caused my fianc to go into preterm labor at 34 weeks. The only thing I asked Dr. Wentz for was a refund of at least the exam fee and medication since they gave us no diagnosis and the wrong medication. He was rude and abrupt and said he would do nothing for me. I do not feel that paying $592 for no diagnosis and getting the wrong medication is right.
This veterinary office gets no stars !!!! It's all about the Money !! Money !! Money !!
Brought my cat there with a urinary block the cat was in pain. They gave me an estimate of $2,700.00 ridiculous !! I felt cornered as my cats bladder was very full and they said it needed to be drained ASAP !! Or it would burst. I had to deny X-rays bloodwork and other medical treatment just to bring the bill down to 1,500!! I felt so bad for my cat and the vet said 1/2 down NOW !! Or we can't treat your cat What !!!! They are really all about the money. Left my cat there for 14 hours then picked him up and transported him myself to my own vet. My vet charged me 185.00 to treat my cat !!! DO NOT GO TO BARTON HIEGHTS ANIMAL HOSPITAL!!! RUN AWAY GO TO ANY OTHER VET OR YOU EILL HAVE TO SELL YOUR HOME TO PAY THE BILLS !!!
I had called about 7 yrs ago when my golden was having breathing problems. it was 4th of July, so I did expect to pay holiday fee. Instead I was told I wasn't a patient of theirs so they couldn't see me. They were the veterinary on called for that holiday. I then tried my vet, left a message and within 5 min. they called me back and met me at their office. This was the Brodheadville Veterinary

This place is terrible. After my experience with Barton Heights, I would never trust them with a beloved pet. They are completely overpriced, cold and unfeeling, and the doctor that I dealt with is incompetent and misdiagnosed my cat twice and apparently doesn't know how to read a sonogram. My cat was vomiting excessively and she was having seizures. First, the doctor misdiagnosed her with FIV, and I left devastated because he never bothered to tell me that a previous FIV vaccination would always indicate a false positive result. After many visits there and one wrong diagnosis after another, the doctor did a sonogram and told me that he didn't find anything in her abdomen. He told me that he did a very thorough and extensive ultrasound and that there was no evidence of cancer and that I should have an MRI of the brain done to check for a possible tumor. Five days later, I took her to a different vet that preformed the same sonogram, and, lo and behold, she has intestional lymphoma that had spread to her liver. I'm not a doctor, but I would find it highly unlikely that the cancer would not show up on the previous sonogram. Her prognosis is still bleak, but I wouldn't have spent $2000 on the MRI if the ""doctor"" had been competent enough to find the cancer with his ""high tech equipment"" in the first place, not to mention the additional $1600 that I threw away by going to this practice in the first place. Not to mention that when I called to speak to the ""doctor"" about this, he became irate, told me that I had two minutes, and then hung up on me. The practice brags about their ""state of the art equipment,"" then Dr. Sean Ott told me that their equipment is outdated and that is why he read the sonogram wrong, so which is it? Apparently, your money is not going to fund the ""state of the art equipment."" Rather, it is funding their annual staff Christmas party at the Stroudsmoor Inn. You can see the photos on their Facebook page, if they don't choose to take it down now by virtue of my review. Buyer beware; this is the worst vet that I have ever been to.

while this place is clean, i'll give them that it's a complete rip off otherwise! made an appt for our dog, whose right side of his face and eye was swollen shut out of the blue overnight. he had no prior signs of anything wrong with him the night before. we get there, the dr. barely opens our dogs mouth and says it's an abscess and they need to anesthetize him and do xrays and ""explore"" his teeth, cost=$1,300, needless to say we left. made an appt for later in the day at Blakeslee vet and as soon as the dr. walked in the room he said ""something bit him"", examined him and concluded it's a spider bite! $70 total for an office visit, steroid shot and take home meds, that's a huge difference from the $1,300 that Barton Heights quoted and wrong diagnosis to boot! please don't go to this place, go anywhere but Barton Heights!
