I wish I could give them 10 stars! My Siamese cat was dying and we called our family vet. They made no effort to get us in. We called For Cats Only and they got us in immediately. Everyone was warm and sympathetic. Dr. Stephanie did not make us feel guilty for wanting to do the humane thing for our ailing family member. She was amazing. I wish they would see dogs too. I love them!

Last year was our first time wintering in North Palm Beach with our four Burmese cats and my biggest worry was finding a GREAT veterinarian who was as wonderful as my veterinarian in CT. We worked with our CT veterinarian to select a cat only practice. I literally called eight different practices and none of them were willing to partner with my CT vet on the existing treatment regimen. I was amazed from the very first call at how warm, friendly and caring the team at For Cats Only was to me when I called and explained my requirements. I have three senior cats and they have a lot of pre-existing conditions which are very complicated. The staff worked to get all of their files in advance of each visit and contacted my CT vet to get clarification on any issues to ensure there was complete continuity of care and to ensure there were no gaps in diagnosing our cats or disrupting the treatment regimen. Dr. Stephanie goes out of her way to call for follow up checks in between appointments and we exchange emails over the week-end (with pictures of my cats recovering calamities) so Dr. can advise me on how to proceed. Whenever I go to the office, we get such attention and I always feel the staff and Drs. Stephanie and Jeff are only (only) focused on my babies. I had no idea I would meet such wonderful people who are always eager to go the extra mile to do all they can for my cats and for me. Not too many veterinarians would work with an out of state colleague to ensure continuity of care. There was never any hesitation by Drs. Stephanie and Jeff Karpf to call our CT veterinarian (Dr. Dupont at Catzablanca) to consult on care and to inquire about my cat’s history. We truly are thrilled to have the entire team at For Cats
IF I COULD PUT 0 stars I would because these vets are no good at all!!Dr Faigen is retired. The practice is owned by a married couple (Dr. Jeff and Dr. Stephanie Karpf) We switched to them knowing that they only specialize in cats and we have 3. Overall, THESE TWO ARE QUACKS ESPECIALLY DR. JEFF. If your cat has a pre-existing condition and has of a treatment regimen that works DONT LET THEM CHANGE IT!! THEY DID WITH ONE OF OUR CATS AND IT ALMOST KILLED HIM. WE went through hell and burned cash thanks to Dr Jeff. One of our cats a Siamese was symptomatic to "megacolon," and was already under a regimen of fiber rich food and medications. Dr. Jeff knew this if he read that in his records but while he was making a change to his diet from dry to wet food he took him off the Fiber. BAD CALL and the part that pisses me off the most is that he did not own up to his mistake. No apology, remorse, NOTHING!!God forbid your cat has a serious problem just before a holiday weekend. One of ours stopped eating or drinking and was miserable on Friday of labor day weekend. Dr. Jeff did not see it serious enough to bring in. His response was that there was nothing he can do. Our cat ended up in the ER TWICE and cost us approx $5000.00 dollars! Thank you Dr. Jeff!Doctors are not accommodating in any way whatsoever. My wife had car trouble one day and had to take all 3 in to board so she can go to work and even though we lived 8 minutes away they said there's nothing they can do. Their response was if they knew sooner they would have sent a car service for her. Really? Next time our car breaks down we will advise it to give us some notice before it breaks down.In a nutshell, Prior to this change Ricky was responding fine to his current treatment before Dr. Jeff started screwing around with his diet.IF YOU LOVE YOU CAT, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!! THEY WILL RECOMMEND TREATMENTS YOUR CAT or Cats DO NOT NEED AND THE CONSEQUENCES ARE AT YOUR EXPENSE.
Dr Faigan and all of his staff are the only professionals I trust my with my furr childrens lives. My cats and I have been seeing him since 1995. all I can say is they are loving, caring, and my cats recieve the best medical/health care...better than what I can get from my mutliple doctors! I have had five cats with Dr Faigan so far and two are still surviving...The compassion I and my family have recieved with Dr Faigand and his staff is very much appreciated and I value him as the 2nd most important person in my cats lives (me being the 1st). Pleaes do not hesitate to take your cats to see him. If you love your cats a I love mine you will have a super strong ally in their care with Doc Faigan and crew. I cannot recommend him high enough. God Bless
