Took my puppy for his first visit a few weeks back and everyone was friendly. He was a bit jumpy (excited) and they really helped to calm him down. Overall, a god visit.

We took our puppy, Riley there to get spayed. She is a very timid puppy, so it was very hard for us to leave her for the day. I went to pick her up at the end of the day and when she walked out her tail was wagging despite the surgery she had been through. The vet was informative and caring and the prices were so reasonable. We were patients at another vet, but now we are planning to switch!!!

Excellent staff! I have a "high strung" male dog, and I was nervous about the visit. They were all wonderful with him, and we had no trouble at all. The techs were very informative, and helpful. I would recommend them to anyone with pets.

The whole office was very accommodating, I called at 130pm as a new patient. It was not an emergency, but I asked to be seen that day, and they had my dog in before 4pm. Reasonable prices, and a friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Careless. Self Centered. I brought my kitten to Dr. Brown a few years ago. I had found him got him neutered and shots. He had one eye missing. She said he would need to have it sewn shut to prevent infection. He had never had an infection but she said it was necessary. She sewed it shut. The kitten then got an infection because she left some of the eye material still in there. The eye was bulging out. I brought the kitten back. She operated again. Same thing--eye bulged. She had still left material in. I took the kitten to another vet who suggested Dr Brown fix the problem. She operated again. This time too much anesthesia. The kitten died from the anesthesia. She would not even talk to me about it because she said it upset HER to much. How about how I felt? I was in love with this kitten. She charged me for each operation and refused to reimburse me for her mistake. I was heartbroken about this cat and all she had to say was how sad it made HER! NEVER GO THERE!

Very clean and comfortable office setting. Staff extremely friendly and helpful answering questions. All of the ladies had an obvious love of pets. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was that we did have quite a bit of a wait.
Dr. Brown was very perceptive and intuitive when she met our dog, picking up on animal actions that normal people wouldn't notice. Showed geniune concern for our girl and was very knowledgable and interested in sharing her knowledge with us to help our dog at home.

I have the greatest confidence with Dr. Brown's staff, especially when I have emergencies with my feral/domesticated cat Mitzi. She has always been taken in upon request the same day I call which not only relieves my anxiety, but my stressed cat also. The staff is tops to try to accommodate and listen to my concerns, not to mention the medical treatment received are superior.

Our Lab Norm has been a patient of Dr. Brown for the past year. From our first visit at 8 weeks to our routine annual just completed, I have found my experiences to be positive. I have never felt as though I was being rushed and Dr. Brown and the staff have always taken the time to make sure they are thorough both with exam and answering any questions. There was one time where I did experience a wait but I learned that there was an emergency patient that was taken and it was clear that Dr. Brown's immediate attention was needed. During my wait, I was kept informed so I feel it was understandable.
What I like best is that prior to my visits, I am able to get a clear understanding of what to expect with my bill for the visit. Of course there are added services and products that are offered at the time of service but never have I felt as though they were being pushed upon me. Most times I take the information and go home to make my decision.
Our last dogs were cared for by another Vet that we are no longer live within a reasonable distance of to have him maintain our dogs health. When we were looking for a new Vet to care for our puppy last year it was a struggle because after 15 years of a valued and trusted relationship built over 3 dogs, the expectations were high. Dr. Brown and her staff have showed us a true love for all animals and an understanding of what it is that we want and expect for our dogs care and we have not been disappointed.

Scooch and I visited Dr. Brown and staff for her annual checkup. Since Scooch is a bit skittish when we see the vet, I always request we go into an exam room immediately to alleviate her anxieties. The girls always comply, which we greatly appreciate.
Doc Brown and staff are kind and gentle with both of my girls and we never feel rushed. I would recommend Best Friends wholeheartedly.

I am going to reserve higher ratings until I have more experiences with the office. My first appoint was acceptable. Dr. Brown was friendly and helpful with my adapted Lab. The appoint was 1/2 hour late, but I felt I was given great attention when it was my turn. I will re-review after my dog is nuetered.

I have used Best Friends Veterinary Hospital several times over the past few years for both my cats and now my new dog. The staff there, from the vet down to the receptionists who greet you, are very caring, helpful and knowledgable. They understand too, that you want to care for your pet the best way you can without breaking the bank and will not order or perform any unnecessary tests or procedures. I feel that they put the pet and family first and are willing to work with you to give your pet the best care available. I highly recommend them.

I have been using Dr. Brown as a Veterinarian since she was with the Ocean Heights Animal Hospital and followed her when she opened up her own practice. I have found the entire staff to be very helpful and friendly. They are all very knowledgeable and take the time to answer any questions that you may have no matter how silly the question may seem. I trust all my animals in her care. I am very particular with whom I take my animals to and I would not take them to anybody else.

The staff was very friendly. I had heard great things about this hospital. I would highly recommend this vet to any of my friends. My first time bringing Lily to them makes me want to bring any other animals I get to them.

Switch to Best Friends after my old vet said they were too busy to help us when we asked to have our dying cat put down, she later died at home. Im very glad we switched to Best Friends. Their staff is amazing and takes their time to go into detail about any questions you may have. When we took another one of our cats to a animal hospital in PA after he was hit by a car and had to be put down, Best Friends sent us a letter in the mail for our loss. It meant at lot to us that they showed they cared. All of our animals go to Best Friends Veterinary Hospital.

Both of my dogs are patients of Best Friends. We go into the office greeted by friendly staff who are very enthusiastic about our pets. They aren't just about business, they're about building relationships with the owners and their pets. I really appreciate all the detailed information both the techs and Dr. Brown offers to my family when considering which medication/food we should give Teddy and Daisy. In addition, I've never really knew anything about health insurance for pets, but Dr. Brown had offered some details about it and we were able to sign up for a free-quote. Also, Teddy was neutered by Dr. Brown, the healing process was quick and easy. We had no troubles after the procedure. One more thing-- Best Friends Vet Hospital calls back a few weeks after each office-visit to insure our pets are healing/getting better! I totally recommend Best Friends to anyone who just got a new pet or is looking for a better, trustworthy vet!

I absolutely love Dr. Brown and her entire staff. I have followed Dr Browm from EHT to Mays Landing and have never regretted the switch. When we come in for an office visit or a grooming session they are genuinely happy to see Bobo the pug. The compassion these ladies show is just heartwarming. I know my dog is in good hands. I have also brought our guinea pig for a check up and Dr.Brown and staff were just as caring with her. We are truly blessed to have such a great team taking care of our pets!!!

Very happy with a recent visit to get my two pups spay & neutered. All employees pleasant, helpful, and genuinely care about all their 4-legged patients. While all Vets are obviously in a money making business, Dr. Brown seems to be the most up front about what is in the best interest of the pet, rather than trying to take financial advantage, as was my recent experience with another local Vet. Special thanks to Sandy!

WE have a yellow Labrador Retriever, Grace, 2/1/2 years old and have been using Best Friends since she was a pup. We unequivocally find the Dr. Suzanna F, Brown is totally competent and professional in the care of Gracie. She and her entire staff are very courteous and friendly also. We highly recommend without reservation Best Friends for the care of your pets.

I have had dogs all my life. This is the first time that I have been at Best Friends Veterinary Hospital. I brought my puppy to be spade. The puppy was very scared, but the report said that she did very well with the surgery. Both the puppy and I were treated very considerately. I would recommend this veterinary hospital.

The staff is very nice, but I definitely feel they overcharge by always giving you the most expensive quote unless you specifically ask them for alternate options. For example, I have a senior dog that had a benign cyst that had opened, and the only diagnosis I was presented with was surgery. I remember the quote being somewhere in the thousands. When I said I could not afford that, they suggested I open a credit card account to cover the cost. Finally, I SPECIFICALLY ASKED if there was anything else such as giving the dog antibiotics or something to treat the wound (since she had had this problem years before and I remember that is what that vet had given me) , THEN I was given the option of antibiotics and an ointment for the cut which was less than $100.

I was also given another quote sheet with prices on surgery for a couple of other bumps under my dogs skin. But for the most part, removing them would be purely cosmetic. I don't see the need to jump to surgery for everything, especially on a senior dog. I'm currently looking for another local vet since I do not trust them to give me multiple options for treatment. The last couple times I was lucky that I happened to know alternate options myself, but next time I may not be so knowledgeable.

The staff is very nice, but I definitely feel they overcharge by always giving you the most expensive quote unless you specifically ask them for alternate options. For example, I have a senior dog that had a benign cyst that had opened, and the only diagnosis I was presented with was surgery. I remember the quote being somewhere in the thousands. When I said I could not afford that, they suggested I open a credit card account to cover the cost. Finally, I SPECIFICALLY ASKED if there was anything else such as giving the dog antibiotics or something to treat the wound (since she had had this problem years before and I remember that is what that vet had given me) , THEN I was given the option of antibiotics and an ointment for the cut which was less than $100.

Sadly, I've only been here once.

As my review is quite lengthy, a short summary is the following: This hospital is one of the few that I truly felt a true compassion for the animals, rather than the potential profit. They're caring, friendly, and honest individuals. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who was a furry friend that is special to them.

Long Review with story:

My first friend, was roughly 18 year old feline. We adopted her at roughly two years old, when we found her abandoned with her kittens. According to the vets, she would have died the next day from the state we got her in.

During 2001, my cat came close to death due to having her teeth cleaned at another vet. She pulled through, but she was now deaf. Once after that, we took her to the vet, and they wanted us to pay for tests to prove it, and thus we decided against taking her again due to fear of them trying to fish for money.

Fast forward to the present, my cat became gravely ill on Thanksgiving night in 2008. After many tears and difficult convincing, my family finally decided to take her to a vet. My Best Friends Veterinary Hospital was the only one opened, so we headed there.

The vets there truly care about the animals they care about. Upon examination, Dr. Brown gave us the tragic news. While she could have gave us tests to prove certain things she felt were true, as well as a lot of other steps to take money from a desperate family trying to save their friend...but she didn't, which I find really admiral.

After pondering the situation, we decided to let my first friend go. There was a lot of tears, and the hospital's staff allowed us to be with her as she passed. They helped us set up the arrangements for my cat's ashes.

If I wasn't impressed from how they told us upfront without trying to charge us, and the friendly caring atmosphere, the next thing they did astonished.

A few days after she was put down, a card addressed to my family was in the mail. To our surprise, those who were there when we had to put my cat down signed the card wishing us sympathy. I cried, partially in sorrow of my loss, and partially from the truly caring attitude from their staff.

I'd highly recommend them to anyone who has a furry friend. By chance of my cat's emergency occurring right after a holiday, led me to an amazing vet. I'm planning on switching all my companions to them. They truly care for the patients, and you can trust that they're not going to try to get extra money out of you.

I am a true fan of Dr. Suzanna Brown. I initially had her treat my pets (cats & dogs) at Ocean Heights Animal Hospital and when she opened her own veterinary hospital I followed her there. She and her staff are so dedicated to caring for the animals that comme through her door and follow up on the animal after they leave the hospital/clinic. I won't take my pets to anyone else. She recently saved the life of my cat and I will always be indebted to her for that.
