The South Bay Veterinary Group is a terrible clinic. Over the course of a year only, they charged us for several services that were not required. We finally decided to change Vet when our puppy got a nasty antibiotic-resistant infection

I diligently read all the reviews I could find before choosing a vet for our new puppy, and despite a few negative ones settled on South Bay because there were so many positive ones. On the first visit when I handed the vet a letter from

I go back and forth between Boston and Los Angeles, so my dog has two vets. Each are competent, but both Dr. Wosko and Constantino (and Giraflaco before them) are superior: they spend A LOT of time explaining all options and exploring all possibilities. My dog's vet in L.A. is, it must be said, considerably cheaper, but also much, much faster. At South Bay you really get terrific attention.

Also, for quick follow-up questions they are terrific about returning phone calls. Highly recommended

Pros: always willing to discuss over the phone

Cons: can be a bit difficult to get an appointment

With regard to prior comments:

My pets have been patients here (or at Charles Street) for twenty five years. My youngest dog is thirteen years old so I can't say if I paid a new patient fee for any of my three dogs or two cats at South Bay. I assume that I did because it seems like an eminently reasonable practice. I can say that when I recenly had to put one of my dogs to sleep there was no charge. I don't know if that is their standard practice or if they simply did it out of compassion for me. Needless to say I was very upset and to pull out my credit card at the end was something I was glad not to do.

With regard to missing a diagnosis, pediatricians and vets frequently have the same problem: they can't communicate with their patients. This makes diagnosis extremely difficult. The fact that they allegedly missed one at South Bay doesn't seem like adequate reason to trash the practice.

In twenty five years I have never been treated other than with courtesy and compassion at South Bay.

Pros: great doctors and staff

Cons: if you don't live here parking can be tough

After failing to react in emergencies and mis - diagnosing a pet who had cancer I stopped going
here after many years. The principals Wosko and Constantino are excellent if you can get in to see them.
The rest are terrible! Some of the rudest, world revolves around me staff I have ever encountered.

They seem like an extraordinary vet and have exceptional references,
BUT
What is this $55 dollar new pet fee? Am I the only one who finds this unusual? I have to pay money so that I can have the privilege of being THEIR CUSTOMER? Is this a hedge fund, and they're guaranteeing a 20% extended life expectancy. Is this Sam's Club and they're going to provide bulk medical discounts? I mean this is ridiculous. No doctor that operates on actual humans pulls this nonsense, yet they find this completely acceptable.
Also, even though they have AVAILABILITY, and my pug is sick and needs to see someone immediately, they require a 2 week waiting period to consult new patients. Seriously this place is a joke. I don't know what kind of professionals set these requirements on their practice. Please give you money to more worthy practices.

If anyone from South Bay Clinic is interested in speaking about this matter further feel free to contact me.

I have two chihuahuas, one older and a new puppy. I had taken my older one to a different vet earlier on before I found South Bay Group. Now that I'm bringing my new one to South Bay and going through all the puppy things there, I am completely impressed.
My little one recently got neutered and comparing both experiences, I was totally comforted, impressed and happy with the outcome. He had the tiniest little incision that healed perfectly in just a little over a week and he was never in any pain. The sutures were perfect and inside, as my poor older dog had gotten metal staples that fell out the next day when he got neutered at the other vet.

All in all, top notch service with extremely caring and professional doctors. I would recommend to ANYONE with pets!!

I have been taking my dog since 8/2007 here and they are great. They treat them as if they were their own dog, and they know a lot, and do not jump into conclusion if they find something. They look for everything before diagnostic them.
I would recommend them with my eyes close

I love this clinic! I have been bringing my dogs in for the last two years, and the office is at a great location, clean and professional. I used to live in upstate New York, and what a difference in care! This clinic can handle anything: My dog even goes in for ultrasounds! My partner has been going to this clinic for the last 10 years, and he agrees.
Definately ask for Dr. Constantino or Dr Wosko, as they are the best! If you need to speak with a technician, ask for Liz or Kelly, they are the smartest and nicest to work with. Try to avoid anyone with a facial piercing...no offense, they just seem young and not as knowlegable, but I believe they are just receptionists. My only problem ever has been was with a rude and not knowledgable staff person named Alivia who REFUSED to ask the doctor a question for me (and instead talked at the front desk about her wedding to another client), but she is easily avoidable.
GREAT CLINIC!!! Take your pets there!

Pros: Great service, great location

Cons: parking

I have been bringing my dogs to South Bay for over 10 years and have had nothing but good experiences. I usually see Dr. Constantino (who is excellent) and have occasionally seen Dr. Wosko who is also very competent.

They have done check-ups, vaccinations, teeth cleanings and one leg surgery on my pups and have had successful results every time. I would highly recommend them.

As for them being cold? (see previous review) I have found them to be very friendly and compassionate. Not cold at all.

Parking IS difficult, but the care of my dogs is more important to me than ease of parking, so I just deal. Arrive early to leave time for finding a parking spot.

This vet was recommended by a woman I work with and I have been going there for 2 years or so. They are the perfect balance of excellent care at a reasonable price. Dr. Constantino has excellent "bedside manner" and has been great with my kitty. They were awesome about getting my cat in for a hospital stay after spending $$$$ at Angell Memorial (the best for middle of the night care but costly). The only thing I don't like is trying to get an appointment! I highly recommend Dr. Constantino.

Pros: Reasonable cost

Found the vets and the staff very cold. They came across as if they thought they were superior. They were also rude when called by a surgeon's office and asked to fax over my pet's medical records! Take your furry friends ELSEWHERE!
