I've been taking my cat to Northstar since Adam Parsons opened his practice. I have to say I love their service and really appreciate that they care for our loved ones. I had to have one of my cats put to sleep and they were wonderful about it. The other cat keeps on ticking despite his ailments but I know the care he receives is by far the best. The staff great, though sometimes communication about extra tests aren't always discussed before they do them. So at times they hit the pocket book a little heavier than I expected but when asked the reasons for the tests are solid. Still though it is all about the care of our furry loved ones. I unfortonately plan on leaving the city in a couple months and really hate the idea of trying to find a vet that is anywhere near as good. If I can find one that is half the vet the Adam and his staff are, I'll be surprised.

I love Northstar!!! And so did my dog. She hated vets but loved everyone at this place. I trust them and will never go anywhere else as long as I'm in Columbus. They took such good care of my dog when she was sick and went above and beyond to accomodate me and my schedule. I've worked with Parsons and Carson and both are great. They listen and they like what they do! And I don't think they are as pricey as other vet offices in the area. Even if they were, I would not care because they are just the best. Read these reviews, everyone that goes here loves it.

This is the best vet I have EVER been to. Dr. Adam Parsons is sincere, patient, down to earth, full of compassion and without a doubt an animal charmer. He is NOT the only reason I am a fan of Northstar. The staff that works there are fantastic. I had to take my cat there after a serious surgery. for medical boarding. They went beyond the call of duty. We were out of the country and they actually emailed me updates on my little guy. What a comfort. I also have a huge 14 year old dog, Moxy who has always hated going to the vet but he started going to Northstar when he was 11 and loved Dr. Adam Parsons! Imagine my surprise. We have now moved to California and have been unable to find a vet that holds a candle to this lovely group. We all miss them!
Cheers!

Our dog Buddy was seen by Dr. Parson and he saved his life. They are very kind and smart. The northstar team explained everything really well and took great care of Buddy

My fiance and I were looking for a for our 2 kittens after moving to Columbus from Boston, and have thus far been extremely satisfied with Apples. I was impressed by Dr. Parsons from the beginning - we had had our kittens medical records faxed over to their office, and he had fully read through BOTH of their patient profiles, and thus was up to speed on their history, which was very helpful when I was describing to him the bout of vomiting that one of the kittens was dealing with at the time. Parson's also really seemed to listen to what I had to say about the kittens, was obviously very knowledgeable, and afterwards, took more time with me to get to know myself and my girlfriend. A class act.

The rest of the staff at the clinic were also exceptionally friendly and easy to talk to, and the facilities, while they may looks older, are really quite quaint. While I cannot attest to the price value of this clinic (as I did not compare with other vet clinics), the prices did not seem to me outrageous (though I did move in from Boston, so everything here is cheaper), and if they were more expensive, I would still be bringing my 2 kittens back to Apples for their superior service and help.

I noticed the other review here and I wanted to update everyone about Apples Clinic. I didn't know the old doctor, Dr. Porter, but the new vet that runs it now, Dr. Parsons, is a one-in-a-million veterinarian. You WILL NOT find a better vet or a better group of people than Dr. Parsons and his team. The building may be a little older, but the service, pricing, and level of caring is truly world-class.

I took my cat, Wingnut, to Dr. Parsons for pretty serious surgery in early 2007 and I was beyond impressed by the entire experience. It's been almost a year now since Wingnut's procedure and I still get the occasional call from the Apples' staff to check on him. The support and aftercare was AMAZING and I cannot say enough about all of the great people there.

Dr. Parsons and his entire team are willing to go way above-and-beyond to take care of your pet (he came in on his day off when the clinic was closed to see Wingnut on one occasion!) He truly loves animals and it shows in everything he does. Dr. Parsons is a modern, cutting-edge vet with a real passion for YOUR pet(s). He is a top-notch surgeon and he and his staff will make you feel like family from your very first visit. If you want a vet you can trust 100% with the health and care of your pets, you will not do better than Dr. Parsons and his team at Apples Veterinary Clinic.

This clinic is located in an old building and it shows. The clinic is small and can be difficult to get in to see Dr. Porter on short notice. If you have an emergency, they can squeeze you in, of course. Dr. Porter is very caring.

We used Apple's Veterinary Hospital as a primary vet for our dog and cat for a couple of years. We changed vets, mostly for the cost factor. We noted "annual exam" fees on our bill when we brought our pet(s) in for other reasons. Our new vet doesn't charge an exam visit on top of the charges for a check-up for a problem.

PROS: Friendly caring service
CONS: Pricey and small
