"Luna, my much loved 9 year old, 90+ lb., Lab mix woke up one morning when she was only 6 years old with a mild limp. I immediately made an appointment with the vet who was treating her at that time. He examined her and said that he didn??t see anything and he suspected a mild sprain. By that evening, she could no longer get up. When I was finally able to lift her up, she was unable to walk. What followed was a several months long search for answers as to what was wrong with her and what we could do to help her. She was put through innumerable tests and procedures and heavily dosed with steroids and other medications. None of the tests indicated what was wrong with her and the medications were allowing her to move, but just barely and with awful, horrible side effects. I was basically told to give up on her and that ??some dogs just don??t respond?.

It was from there that my search for help led me to Dr. Frishman and Progressive Animal Hospital. Dr. Frishman??s approach was completely different from what we had been doing. He began a regimen of acupuncture and holistic treatment with the aim of getting Luna completely off steroids. After running blood work which showed that Luna??s liver enzymes were off the charts from the medication she had been on, we were very anxious to find something that would allow her body to heal. I was a little concerned about how Luna would react to acupuncture and was shocked to see her go into what I can only describe as a super relaxed, almost trance like state for the duration of the session. Initially, we had weekly treatments but we are now on an approximately four week maintenance schedule. While Luna will never be completely pain free all of the time, she is comfortable most of the time. Her coat which had dulled from her sickness and the medications, is shining again as are her eyes. With Dr. Frishman and his wonderful staffs' help we have worked together to find the best methods to keep her comfortable combining both Eastern and Western medicine. The acupuncture has done more for her then I ever would have imagined. Thank you!!"

I just got left Progressive Animal Hospital in tears after Dr. Frishman yelled at me about how my dog died under HIS care when he only came in for a bloody ear. Two years ago, Dr. Frishman gave my dog a sedation to drain his puss filled ear. I live one mile from the hospital. Half way home, he got the bandage off and his ear was bleeding again. My mother turned around and Dr. Frishman gave my dog a second dose of sedatitives. It happened to be the Friday of Memorial Day weekend and at this point it was after hours and the staff was itching to leave. They told my mother instead of waiting here for him to wake up, why don't you let him sleep it off and pick him up in the morning. The next morning my mom went to pick him up. Went in the back w/ the assistant saying "Bailey, Bailey" Bailey was dead in his cage. GET THIS - the next phone call my mother gets is from Dr. Frishman's WIFE asking for MORE MONEY because now they had to dispose of Bailey!!!! I didn't realize this when I went to speak with him today. Nonetheless, he was screaming and cursing at me that I was calling him a malicious dog killer which I never did. I merely asked for an explanation as none was given to my mother, nor an apology or condolence. He couldn't give me an explanation. They have no records other than he is deceased. He told me what he believes happened. He constantly contradicted himself. He couldn't get past that fact that I was coming in "two years later...over a dead dog!" I happened to be living in Florida and this is the first chance I got, thankyouverymuch. Plus my mother has been absolutely DISTRAUGHT. But I NEVER expected him to act like this. He was arguing with me for about 5 mins before he would start his explanation. It almost seems like he has a mental illness. He was out of control. But turning it all around like it was my fault or something. He couldn't deal with this situation for some reason. Contradictions like - dogs don't die here regularly so I remember this dog. Then its dogs die here all the time, but I don't do autopsies on them. They are sick. I was asking why if a perfectly healthy dog other than a bloody ear died under your supervision, wouldn't you want an autopsy for you? For your records? As a Dr.? He said it costs $1,000 and he has kids to feed. Funny, I looked him up and he lives in Chappaqua. Beyond the point. Others were he couldn't remember specifics because it was 2 years ago. Then all of the sudden he remembered clearly. Like at the very end of our convo, he remembered clearly that my dog was awake before he left. He also remembers clearly how he spent hours on the phone with my mother, CRYING WITH HER. That is B.S. And he called my mother a liar. This man is completely unprofessional and I would never trust a plant to be under his care much less a beloved breathing creature who had his whole life ahead of him. My dog Bailey came in with a hemotoma. He left in a body bag. Heed my warning about this hospital. Bailey takes a sedative every time he goes to the vet. He doesn't have allergies to it. It was that he was given 2 doses within an hour or a couple hours. The doctor should have known that and at least stayed with him until he was awake, alive and well. And I am sure he will try to discredit me as well. I just want my story out there for you to read so you can make an educated decision.

I have two senior cats that required immediate dental work. Money was one of the major concerns and I have shopped around and could not find anything affordable. Someone suggested that I should look into Pet Surgical website to see if I qualify for any low cost care for my cats. I submitted my online application and was contacted by Debbie at Progressive Animal Hospital in about week. She told me to come in for my cats?? dental work and Dr. Frishman had offered a huge discount for the procedures for both cats. All the staffs are very friendly and kind to me and my cats. The hospital is very clean and the staffs are very professional. Dr. Frishman took his time to examine my cats and explain very thing in details. He is a great listener and a great doctor. I would recommend him to everyone I know. Thank you Dr. Fishman, Matt, and Debbie!!!

My dog was suffering from hind limb weakness. I was referred to Dr. Frishman to see if acupuncture would help. It really works! My dog is doing great and I have Dr. Frishman to thank.

It was nice to have both the option for traditional medicine and homeopathic medicine. Dr. Frishman is well versed in both areas and I've had the opportunity to see his alternative medicine in practice, it is amazing.
