This vet is way to expensive, from office visits, to medications. Some of the staff girls are okay, and some are rude and uncaring. Pet went in for a simple problem, and WHOA, the bill was a few hundred dolllars! Would NOT recommened

You know I have seen some of the reviews of the people that complain about how expensive Drake is, I thought that too. Before we had a tragic accident and lost our beloved family member Buddy. I am not sure how theses people feel about

Dr. Drake is the best! My dogs love him and his staff. When our family lost one pet to cancer and the other to old age they were kind, compassionate and did all that they could to make it easy on us and our pets. I would never go

I have been taking my dog to Dr. Drake for 10 years. She is now 13 years old. He has been great. I trust him completely.
There is a reason a good veterinary wants to do a check up on your pet before he gives them shots, etc. He is taking care of your pet as a doctor would one of your children. If you only want shots with no care for any other aspect of your pets health, I see flyers quite often that offer shots only. These usually happen in your local areas.
I want my dog to be with me for many years, and the best way to have that happen is to pay those extra dollars and get the finest care. Good care is not free.
There are insurance policies you can buy that help with the cost. You might want to look into those.

i took my dog to get vaccinated and ended up paying over a hundred dollars. when i called to make the appointment they told me i had to either bring in a stool sample or they would wait for him to go, so i brought it in., which i didn't really understand what that had to do with vaccines.

when i got there, they kept trying to do other things to the dog and i kept saying no, i just want to get him vaccinated.

about 4 months later i got a bill in the mail that said i owed 28 dollars...with no explanation why, just that i owed them money....when i called they told me that it was for the stool sample. and the lady tried to tell me that i had an option to pay at the time, i told her no, i would have payed it, i mean why pay 105 bucks at the time and then wait for the next 28? thats ridiculous

anyway, i wouldn't recommend this place even to my enemy

I started going to Dr. Drake when he had the converted house (before the new building pictured here) and the prices were always reasonable and my dogs were treated very well. Since the new building, however, the prices keep going up and up and up and they always wanted me to schedule more appointments to get medication for a pre-existing conditon. I complained about it so they stopped charging me but it just should not have happened to begin with.

He hired a new vet within the last year who doesn't listen, isn't personable with the pet or the owner. I HATED the way she roughly handled my little dog and the way she ignored me. I had to keep repeating myself about my concern over my dog then she would paraphrase something completely different and this went on about the exact same topic for at least five minutes. Then she told me nothing was wrong with my dog (turns out her shoulder was dislocated) and claimed she couldn't see my dog limp. THEN she chastized me for not having given my dog knee surgery when she was a puppy because she might get arthritus as an adult. That was inappropriate and not what I was there for. She was so fixated on chastizing me for not giving my dog surgery to possibly avoid arthritus in the future that the reason I went in (my dog was limping after being attacked by another dog) was ignored.

I am now searching for a new vet as that incident with the misdiagnosis of the dislocated shoulder pushed me over the edge.

I have been taking my dog there for the past year for an ongoing life long condtion he has. I was told to come back every 6 months for a check up. Then, everytime I call for a perscription re-fill I am told the Doctor wont refill it until my dog comes in for a checkup. Every 6 months turned into every 2 months. There are always extra charges I almost always leave a "checkup" spending $150+. I am beginning to feel like they are trying to squeeze money out of me. Not a good feeling. I will be going back to my previous vet. Only started going to Drake because they could get me in faster than my previous vet. While the staff is very friendly, I can't allow myself to feel like I am being taken advantage of.

Pros: Able to get appointments quickly

Cons: Always costs way more than you expect

This is one of the worst vets I have ever been to - the staff is friendly, but once they have your animal, they look for any excuse to schedule multiple visits, a slew of tests, and once they're convinced that they have the right opinion about an issue your animal is having, they won't listen to reason. I didn't have an animal almost die like Suzydido, but I have been fighting them for the better half of 6 months to prescribe a standard medication for one of my animals - and it's only after several rounds of visits (money) and tests (more money) that they are willing to concede that I was right in the first place. I wouldn't recommend this place to my family or friends.

Cons: dr. drake should clone himself and move to south austin, too!

We took our dog in for 3 days in a row to this vet, and even asked the vet if our dog had Parvo (life-threatening disease) multiple times. The vet said no and wouldn??t even test him. His diagnosis was the she might have worms. Our dog didn??t eat or drink for 4 days, and then when we called on Saturday they said to wait until Monday because they were about to close. You can??t not drink or eat for 7 days!!! Our dog would have died!!! We took our dog to another vet, and she was diagnosed with Parvo in less than 10 minutes. This vet even wrote us a letter after the fact that we told him he misdiagnosed our dog and he would have died if we would have waited until Monday, just because he thought we were going to sue him. Turns out, this has happened before, we talked with another pet owner who??s dog had a heart murmur, and the vet didn??t know what it was, but sure took their money time after time, and then once they took it to another vet it was diagnosed in 10 minutes. This vet doesn??t know anything about any serious conditions. He gave us oral medication for our dog when it was throwing up every 20 minutes?obviously she was just throwing up the medicine, but they wouldn??t give us anything else. Horrible vet!!! Staff is so super nice, but the vet knows nothing about serious issues!!

Awesome vet staff. That, to me, is just as important as the Vet himself. They are very nice and always accommodating. I would highly reccommend this office.

I have been going to Dr. Drake for about five years now. He saved our dog's life! His staff loves animals and they show it. I feel very confident in Dr. Drake and his staff. I have no human children, my pets are my kids and Dr. Drake & staff treat them with love. Dr. Drake will always be the one that cares for my kids.

We have been going to Dr. Drake there for about 6 years. 2 dogs and a cat. The ladies working there are always so happy and playing with the dogs, getting all dirty, letting them climb on them, lick them, they just give them so much attention. Dr. Drake has also been very honest with us, even when it means saving us money by going another route, etc. He really makes us feel that his best interest is that of the pet and us, not his pocketbook. We've recommended him to a friend and now she drives all the way from south austin where she moved to Round Rock because of the people there.

PROS: staff is expceptionally friendly, Dr. is not out to make you spend $
CONS:

I have found Dr. Drakes office to be one of the best vets that I have been to in a long time. I have a nasty habbit of running late to the vet, granted the Cats have a large part to play in that, and they are always courteous and willing to work me into their schedule, time permitting. They are always willing help me with pet problems and they always give me great advise. I would recommend Dr. Drake to everyone in Round Rock. He may be a little bit higher, but he is well worth it.
