The bottom line:
If you have infinite money and don??t mind spending it to get your pet diagnosed and fixed, then this is your Vet. If you value honesty, a common-sense economic approach, and still getting good treatment: GO ELSEWHERE!
Dr. Bach will use your lack of medical knowledge to take advantage of your situation by playing on your fears, and if that doesn??t work she will make the sale off your guilt! She is an excellent veterinarian, but she is a better SALESWOMAN !
Go here instead:
After this terrible experience, we found a very knowledgeable Vet, who listens, who is HONEST, and who genuinely cared about giving our dog the correct (and only the necessary) treatment.
So I will save you the time of reading any further reviews!

The story:
I took our dog into see Dr. Isabelle Bach for an emergency appointment ($75) when our dog got sick while we were visiting family in the area. It was a very scary problem: bloody stool? but it turned out in the end to be just stress !
Dr. Bach didn??t take into consideration our dog??s history that we told her, prescribed several diagnoses all at once (a total of $320), which could have been done individually to exclude the others, one of which was unnecessary ($130). And then came back with 2 overpriced, overprescribed options for treatment ($222 and $1,700!). We chose NEITHER! We picked out the one actually-necessary medication ($14) from the laundry-list she prescribed, and left. We then found another Vet, who was honest (see above).
Now let me clarify one thing. I do not think that Dr. Bach would purposefully put any animal in direct danger, by prescribing anything that will harm it. She will however prescribe everything under the sun that can even remotely apply to the situation at hand, in an effort to line her pockets. This then puts animals in indirect harm, because owners are then faced with picking out the correct treatment themselves (which I had to do), or dropping the absurd amount of money to do what the doctor orders.
I believe that this is how she sleeps at night (shirking the clear moral dilemma here), by deluding herself into thinking she did everything in her power for the wellbeing of the animal, and transferring her guilt onto the pet owners. She does not consider the fact that usually the same results can be reached by taking a step-by-step, more economically responsible approach, which balances the treatment of the animal with damage to the owner??s wallet (but clearly that is not in HER best interest, and requires morals).

We have been going to Pet Medical Center since they opened on Winchester Road. We have been happy with all of the vets that we have seen there. Dr Bach is a wonderful and caring vet. We have had 4 dogs cared for there over the years and they were well taken care of there. Their wellness plans help keep the cost down, especially with our senior dogs. We had to euthanize 2 of our dogs this past year, and the staff was very supportive and caring. We couldn't have asked for more.

I found this animal clinic out of an emergency. I had adopted a puppy a few days ago, when she began to have stomach problems. I called the number and made an appointment to come in. The facility is beautiful with fresh flowers and spotless (a vet that smelled great, go figure!). The staff attended me immediately, was very knowledgeable and the doctor saw me some time later with a little wait. She is very knowledgeable about just about everything and provided extensive guidance on taking care of the puppy going forward and got rid of the worms causing the bad stomach upsets. The attention I received here was excellent and I would highly recommend them. I had a dog 10 years ago with a vet farther away, and never had this type of service or facilities there but the prices were the same. Pet Medical Center is a great value for your money. They also assist in preparing insurance claims, so that's a plus if you've got coverage. Thanks Dr. Bach

Caring and knowledgable staff. The care that my dog received was top notch and Dr Bach is the best vet we've ever known. She's very caring and treats all the pets as if they were her own. Her hospital is fantastic and the hours are wonderful. Now if we need an office visit or medication the hours are great after work or the weekend. She has taken care of my 2 doggies since they were puppies and I have confidence in him of handling their health care. 5 stars it is highly recommended.

Very overpriced...They are by far the most expensive pet care facility in the Temecula area.I'm sure they provide good care but so do most others and at half the price.

This place does seem to have good facilities and freindly staff. However, they are about as expensive as it gets! I mean stupid expensive. I am no vet and don't claim to know it all but they recommend things that my dog obviously doesn't need. I honestly believe they are out to make as much money as possible. Not to say the care is substandard, It's just waaaaaayyyyyyyyy expensive.

I took my 14 year dog to this clinic. She was vomiting, unable to walk and had a left tilt to her head. I was told she had an ear infection. Then a staff member brought an estimate to me for $400+; which included cleaning the ears, x-rays & blood work (just to make sure nothing else was wrong). I said I just wanted them to take care of her ears. I was then given an estimate for $700 because she needed to be sedated and stay overnight. The next day, I was given 4 meds that she needed and a print out of how to care for my dog. The next several days were pure hell for my dog and my family. She refused to eat, could not walk, laid in her own urine and her head tilt was worse. No one at this clinic advised me that she would be like this, no one from this clinic called to see how she was doing. We were totally unprepared for this, we thought she was recovering from an ear infection and would be back on her feet in no time. When I called Dr. Gindi on Monday morning, I was told that I should start force feeding her, continue with the medication and she would need to see her @ the end of the week. We took her to another vet immediately and the first thing they said when they saw my poor dog was...she's been having strokes. We made the tough decision to let her go. I'm not saying that this clinic killed my dog but I am saying that they are nothing but money hungry folks that have no compassion and certainly lack the skills to diagnosis correctly. They made a bad situation so much worse for money and caused my dog & my family to suffer unnecessarily. Please do not take your pet to this clinic.

Absolutely the worst thing I ever did was take my dog to this place. Dr. Bach and her husband are rude, arrogant and unprofessional. The doctor on duty completely missed a large gash wound on my dog's neck. Then they wouldn't admit they were at fault. I wasted my time and money coming to this place and put my dog in danger. Go anywhere else but not here if you love your pet. If I could give a minus 5 stars I would.

I'm very upset with Pet Medical. I made an appointment, and still had to wait 1 hour to be seen. The girl at the front never logged me in. Then when I asked , she looked like I had annoyed her. I WON'T be coming back!

The day that Dr. Bach walked into the examination room, I realized that all of the veterinarian??s we had seen prior to her, were simply sub-standard. She has a gentle and caring nature and a love for animals that leaves no question as to why she became a Veterinarian. From the reception area to the surgical room, Dr. Bach and her staff are amazing. My pets are my family, and they count on me to make sure they receive the best veterinarian care available?.and that care comes from the Pet Medical Center.

We have been taking our dog to PMC for several years and have always had excellent and competent service from both Dr. Bach and Dr. Gindi as well as the staff. Everyone at PMC is friendly, professional, and they really treat our dog like family (he is always happy to see everyone at the clinic). We also kennel him at the clinic several times a year and have full confidence that he is getting the best possible veterinary care. Both doctors have always taken their time in answering our questions; we have always been treated with respect and we will happily continue going back to PMC.

I have taken my grand dog to Pet Medical Center. Yes I said my grand dog. I consider my grown children's dogs and cats to be my grand dogs and grand cats and love them just like I love my grand kids. Anyway I took Toby there and found the staff to be warm, considerate, caring and professional and the prices to be in line with other vets I had used before moving to the area. Dr. Bach and Dr. Gindy are caring professionals that treated my grand dog like it was their own. I don't know what this KK person is talking about but I have to say that some folks are never satisfied and are just plain negative. Anyway I would recommend you stop in and check the place out and talk to the Doctors and staff. I think you will find a friendly caring professional staff.

There are not enough stars to rate Dr. Isabelle Bach and her staff at Pet Medical Center. Having gone to a several of Veterinarians over the past 28 years - we consider Dr. Bach and staff and the Clinic the very very best. The personal care, consideration and attention we have received - both for us and our dogs is beyond compare. We have 2 very high maintenance Wire-haired Fox Terriers who have been given every extra special and expert care and attention from each and every member of the Team at Pet Medical Center. We feel more than blessed to have them in our lives. THANK YOU!! Don and Nancy Smith
