My experiences at the clinic have been excellent. Not only are they kind and caring, they are also fair and honest. Recently I purchased through them a device to check my cat's blood/sugar levels and they had quoted me a price and then

AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE!

Avoid this place at all costs. Dr. Robinson didn't say a word, look us in the eyes or ask any questions... It was as if we weren't even there. They were very rough with our 18 year old cat. Threw a towel over her head and grabbed her by the neck! Then the "assistant" Laura told us "This cat is being difficult" Then she told us we have to leave!!!! She must be a miserable person to do this and I don't know where the doctor graduated from but he's very incompetent. She had the nerve to say I was being nasty by asking her a question. The huge secretary came out yelling at my elderly father and I. This place is an awful mess and needs to be reported.
Needless to say, they aren't getting a dime. Low cost=low quality.

My Sheltie has been treated by Dr. Robinson and Laura since 2002. They are kind, devoted, hard working, animal loving people. The cost of treatment at their clinic is remarkably low. In the past I took my dog to 3 other vets and while the quality of treatment did not vary much, the cost is always way more affordable at Dr. Robinson's clinic.
I am very disappointed by the vicious, demeaning comments posted here. Dr. Robinson and Laura were excellent when my dog was bitten by a bull terrier and had to have an emergency surgery to repair a deep neck wound.
Their kindness and compassion were outstanding when a distraught elderly woman walked in with her puddle just hit by a truck. Dr. R. examined the dog, provided the woman with the referral to an animal hospital to have the x-rays done to rule out hip dislocation and gave her medication for the dog to manage pain. All of the above was provided free of charge and without any expectation to be paid back, since the woman was not asked for her name and address.
Then Laura called the cab and stepped out of the office to help bring the dog to the cab and pay the driver for the trip, because the owner of the puddle did not have any money on her.
Laura and Dr. Robinson are always nice, attentive, kind and polite to all their patients. I have never seen anyone being mistreated or yelled at their clinic.

I have brought my dog and cat to this clinic for last 5 years. Very kind stuff, very good doctor. They really love animals. I'm glad I found this clinic. When we were refused in other clinics, doctor operated my dog successfully and saved my poodle. They do everything for our pets and I always recommend them to my friends. No disappointment. I can't believe previous reviews. That's strange, these bad reviews were written by people, who visited this clinic only once. If your pet has a real problem, here it can get efficient help and nobody will insist for unnecessary procedures for extra money. What is important for me - real help for my pet and a good vet, whom I trust. Here I nave this.

Three years ago my girlfriend brought her very timid stray-adopted kitten to be neutrered and have its front claws removed and the cat is doing just great. The doctor and receptionist look like oddballs but they were pleasant to my girlfriend in answering her questions. Six months ago she brought her Chihuahua in for examination and the dog bit the doctor and the doctor looked very afraid. The doctor bled from the bite. The scale the doctor used to weigh the animals looks like it came from an old time butcher shop. The office is small and grungy looking.

If you have a stray, can't afford to spend more money, and have a tame animal, this place is acceptable.

I brought my previous dog here (now passed on) and now bring my precious dog here, and recommend them to anyone who asks me for a vet. They may not be fancy or high class, but they are to the point, and aren't out to rob you.
If you dog needs something done, they will tell you, if he/she doesn't they will tell you, and they will even tell you when to stay home and what you can do at home yourself.

This place is small, not like the showy vets places with their snoddy personnel and high costs. The doctor is so honest and talks to you. After my beloved Maddy passed away with the help of the doctor (Maddy had cancer), I brought my new adopted pet to him. They are always so kind, gentle and loving with the animals. The doc even got down on the floor to hold my baby while taking tests. Okay so I got paranoid, and had the doc take tests every year - but he knew what I went through with my last pet, and he was very kind about it.
You will not fine a better Vet.

Dr.Robinson ,and his assistant Laura are lifesavors.They recently saved our cat Joey"s life, by promptly and efficiently diagnosing a urinary blockage.If it werent for them Joey had 48 hours or less to live.This was the first day Joey exibited any discomfort,and we were able to bring Joey right in without an appointment.They both immediately advised us to go to the animal hospital ,where Joey was admitted , and ultimately his life was saved. Dr Robinson also saved my cat Fluffys life when she had an abcess on her neck.a couple of years back.It is beyond me why those individuals that made those insulting comments on this sight in an attempt to defame 2 wonderful and caring persons ,would even be allowed to have their insane comments printed.Having an opinion is one thing ,but trying to degrade and insult someone is another.Some people sue for comments like that.Its called defamation of charactor.

I love Dr Robinson , Laura and Diane. They are not phoney and will put you in your place if you want the big show or full of it. They dont play around and as for my animals not since the first time I came in have they even asked my name THEY KNOW IT!!! As for that other reviewer Dr Robinson being rough and inexperienced I have never seen anyone gentler and kinder to the animals he doesnt put on a show and play up anything, also being a Cornell graduate and in practice for many years please. He would not do anything to harm any animal. Laura yes will call you out if you are full of it and yes they do not coddle or deal with high maintainace people (please who wants to). but if you need sane advice and guidance Laura and Diane will be there for you. as for the maintainace of the the practice I have seen the staff on their hands and knees cleaning. The only time when they are in dissarray is when they host the Aspca spay and neutur van when thye let some of the crew hold their animals before and after it. and wild cats can smell what are they going to do. and lets face it in brooklyn how many vets would allow that to be outside their clinic. Trust me they know I have been to a vet (who will stay nameless) who put on a show and charged me crazy fees and i felt even with the show he wasnt always honest . At least here i know they will be truthful , honest and never gouge me and when they cant help me lead me in the right direction and still help me and be there for me and my pets . love ya guys!!

Pros: reasonable prices , great caring staff

Cons: sometimes parking is rough

I know for a fact when my cat was there and sick , they are not a 24 hour facility . Laura was there all night and worked the next day and the next 3 days after. I was not charged 24 hour care. that is a caring staff the end of the day they do not walk out saying lets see tomorrow. She also tried to play off staying there when i know why she did it. it is rare in this day and age to see people who go above and beyond and are responsible . This is a small staff and they have a lot of ups and a lot a lot of downs in their lives and never cry and moan and the animals come first in a lot of ways to them . I dont know how they put the other things on the back burner when they are there but i truely respect them for their hard work , kindness and professionalism.

Unsure what the problem is for the disgruntled fool below, but I am an animal rescuer and volunteer for an animal non-profit for over 20 years. I came upon Dr.Robinson & Laura (his TECH, not "front desk lady") quite by accident over 20 years ago when I brought my own cat in for a neutering. I was new to the area, having just moved in a month prior. Dr.Robinson and Laura's genuine compassion immediately stole my heart, and I have entrusted HUNDREDS OF ANIMALS to their care with beautiful results. If you want a fancy vets office, or have your hand held as your money rapidly leaves your pocket, this is NOT the vet for you. If you want honest animal care at a price the average person without a trust fund could afford, THIS IS YOUR VET. Kudos to this dynamic duo for their compassion with the feral cat community as well, when your "cleaner" vets won't even so much as look at a stray injured animal. A true animal lover would know what's important...proper honest care, not hi-tech surroundings.

I am telling you from the bottom of my animal loving heart, to please avoid this place. The veterinarian was a nice guy but with all do respect, he's clueless. I have had dogs for a long time and right away I knew this is not a place to take your pet. I noticed that another reviewer mentioned that the lady at the front desk is crazy. Honestly he is right. The veterinarian was too rough with my dog and I politely asked him to be careful. That lady went off on me like I was a piece of dirt. I didn't know what to say. I just left. Someone came out and told me that the lady is out of control and talking badly about me to the other customers. That person left as well. I am not the same person who wrote that bad review about this lady. There is honestly something very wrong with her. But even more importantly, the veterinarian is too inexperienced. Don't let the price fool you. This place is unprofessional, and on top of that, unsanitary. It smelled and was kept very dirty. I honestly hate to write a review like this but I'm too much of a dog lover not to.

I have visited Dr. Robinson since 1999 and have been very pleased with the attention and care he's shown my Cats. Laura, the office manager, is a sweetheart and very caring of the animals, too. These days, it seems the vast majority of veterinary practices operate under the assumption that if you own pets, you must be wealthy. The fees at this practice are very, very reasonable. You simply cannot complain (especially when you compare what you spend here versus anywhere else).

The doctor is a very good vet with a very nice staff. He is a very considerate and compassionate doctor whose prices are reasonable. I would not go anywhere else. I trust the staff completely with my cats and dog. I even boarded one of my cats when I went away and was completely happy with the service. If you have any questions concerning treatment and or the diagnosis of your pet, they listen and give you an honest answer. I find they are not like most vets who will take advantage. I have recommended some friends to this vet and they were completey satisfied.

This vet place isn't bad and it's really low cost for the most part. They are open about 5 days out of the week, I think they are closed thursday and sunday and they take appointment only. Good care, just like any other vet.

PROS: not bad cost
CONS: open 5 days a week, appointment only
