We have a Mastiff puppy and brought him in. Everyone was so helpful, kind, and easy to work with. All of our questions were answered and we really felt taken care of. We know they were great with our dog because he was excited to see the vet. techs when we brought him back in. Thanks a bunch!

I probably should have looked at some of Dr. Dhillon's reviews before going. My lab has had ear infections for five years. I made an appointment for an ear infection and told the staff when I arrived that it was an ear infection. The staff did a test for ring worm. It was negative. Dr. Dhillon then seemed convinced that it was ear mites and pressured me into a $40.00 test for mites. It was also negative. He then seemed concerned that it was a foxtail...to which I called BS! My dog would have been in horrific pain if it were a foxtail. If he was suggesting this happy, healthy puppy had a foxtail piercing her inner eardrum and miraculously showed no signs of pain or discomfort, he was either a horrible veterinarian or a sheister. I said, enough with the needless tests...just give me the freakin' ear infection medication.
So at the end of the day, I walked out of the clinic with the same ear infection medication that she has been prescribed for five years...only the total cost was four times as much as it regularly is. Don't be fooled by the $19.95 first time consultation...it only means he is going to charge you an extra $20 bucks on top of everything else. I won't be coming back. :(
PS - I will say that the vet tech was very sweet and seemed to genuinely care about my dog...it's Dr. Dillhon that seems to be the fast-talking con man.

I brought 3 year old cat with respiratory problem, no other symptoms. He promised to get x-rays and see what??s going on. 10 minutes later he came out and said that my cat doesn??t allow him to give a shot to calm him down. He said I can use a mask but because of respiratory problem it??s very dangerous and might be lethal. I was insisting on helping him to hold my cat down if his other 2 nurses/assistants cannot perform same thing. Doctor replied that even if I help him my cat still can bite him (my cat doesn??t have claws so he can??t scratch, as well as it has all shuts). I was furious. Veterinarian is afraid of the cat bite. What does he thinks when animals are agitated they are fuzzy and its doctor??s obligation to find a ways to perform such an easy tusk as administrates sedative through shot? This doctor - Dr.Dhillon ?? told us to go to emergency room because they are professionals. I asked him if they are professionals and they can administrate a shot who the heck is he? He said I can say anything but he can not help our cat. I will report him to State board and will force investigation with possible suspension of his licence for refusing our pet a first medical response. Don??t go to this doctor if you really care about your animal. He advertise that He offers and performs ?? ??Black Mt Rd. Pet clinic is a full serviced Veterinary Hospital with state of the art hospital facilities. The comprehensive services we offer include, pet health exams, dentals, low cost vaccinations, travel, microchipping, diagnostics, radiology, dermatology, surgery, house calls and emergency after-hour service.?
What radiology, surgery, or emergency Dhillon is talking about if he cannot even perform a sedative shot?
Update: We went to Sorento Valley Hospital, they gave our cat sedative through shot without any problem.

Dr. Dillon is a very compassionate and caring professional who goes forward carefully and continuously explains what he is doing, why and how much he estimates it will cost. He is very thorough and listens carefully to what the pet owner says. He also doesn't pressure people to spend more or do more than is necessary. Another vet I went to was constantly insisting on giving needless vaccinations and do procedures that seemed unnecessary and overpriced. I greatly appreciate Dr. Dillion being so considerate and professional in every way.

I have a Bassett Hound who had a rattlesnake bite on the ear. Dr Dilhon was excellent in treating her and she has fully recovered. He could have recommended expensive Anti-Venom but gave him antibiotics based on time it took from the bite to getting care.. Yes, pet visits are always a cost but recommend getting pet insurance. VPI covered over $500 for just that one rattlesnake problem (cost included urgent care at Poway Pet Hospital also). I too never have waited any long period of time and the receptionist are great also! He is real patient and caring...

I started using this clinic many years ago when Dr. Singh was there. When Dr. Dhillon took over the practice I decided to give him a try and I am so glad that I did. He's been great with all my dogs. Very caring and patient with my sometimes difficult pets. I've had some dogs with complicated problems and he has always been willing to try conservative treatments before going to more expensive options. He has also been very willing to refer me to a specialist when the dog needed advanced care instead of trying to keep all the business for himself. He was also very compassionate with my pets that had terminal issues, keeping them as comfortable as possible, and also answering all my questions thoroughly and offering some comfort and support to me also. I highly recommend Dr. Dhillon.

I have used Dr. Dhillon's Pet Clinic for several years now for both of my cats. His combination of exceptional experience and caring attitude make him my choice amongst all of the other North County Vets I have used. He took the time to talk with me, explaining all aspects of preventative and corrective care - answering questions and providing recommendations. I have never been stuck waiting in his waiting room, always been seen immediately. He willingly provided his telephone number to me, telling me to feel free to call him day or night with questions. He has even volunteered to come in after closing to see my cat. His rates are better than any of the other vets I have used. I have read the other negative comments, and believe the submitters must be mistaken or talking about some other pet clinic. I have found Dr. Dhillon and his staff to be very knowledgeable, very experienced, friendly and courteous but also factual and straight forward, and always willing to go the extra mile to help.

I have been a client of Dr Dhillons for several years, and I am shocked by some of these negative reviews! Dr Dhillon and his staff have never been anything but kind and caring to me and my pets. Over the years I have been to many different veterinarians and I am more than pleased with Dr Dhillon and his caring, knowledgeable staff. Dr Dhillon always makes me feel like my pets are important to him, and he has even taken my calls after-hours to talk me through some concerns I had about one of my pets. There is no other place I would take my pets for their medical care, and I will be devastated when he retires! I recommend A Black Mountain Road Pet Clinic to anyone looking for a veterinarian in the Penasquitos area.

My husband and I went to this vet twice and he was extremely rude to my husband. My dog had a wound on her face and Dr. D wanted to perform surgery immediately. My husband suggested that the infection be treated 1st, but Dr. D insisted it was a tumor and needed to be removed. My husband insisted on antibiotics and the doctor was again very rude. The wound healed completely with the antibiotic and thankfully my dog didn't undergo unnecessary surgery. The visits were very expensive and I would not recommend this vet to anyone.

One morning my beloved but very large dog could not get up. My "regular" vet could only tell me to bring her in. I could not lift her. Dr. Dhillion on the other hand actually CAME TO MY HOUSE and we weren't regular patients. We are now. He was so tender and caring. I can not recommend him enough.

I just moved to Poway from the Midwest. I went to A Black Mountain Road Pet Clinic. I was shocked how rude they were. Dr. S.S. Dhillon was very hasty and had no "bedside manners". Very expensive also. Was the worst experience my pet and I have ever had at a vet's office. Please take my advice and please go somewhere else.
