I have been dealing with Riverview for the past 6 years. I have yet to have a negative experience with treatment or staff, vet techs or doctors.

There is nothing that I dislike about RAC.

They are pretty average in price and will work with you if you can not afford to pay a huge amount of money at once.

I particularly like the fact that they are open weekends and late hours during certain days of the week. This allows me to deal with pet related, non-emergency issues on my way home or after regular work hours.

They specialize in exotics, which is what my primary pet, a ferret, is considered to be. In cases where I had to deal with other local vets, none of them knew anything about ferrets like the vets at RAC and in particular, Dr. Alvin Atlas. He is a great doctor, knows his stuff and is perhaps one of the most compassionate veterinarians I have ever known.

We also use RAC for our two cats and have used them for past pets who are no longer with us.

If you care about your pet and want to deal with a friendly and "family" type staff, go to Riverview. You'll be glad you did.

Recently I used this veterinary clinc for my furry friend. She had a life threatening illness. This clinic charged me an arm and a leg for NOT diagnosing her! They opted to "guess" and "test". The problem with this is that her condition if not treated she would have died before the guess and test came back. I was not treated very well at all when bringing this up to them either. I would not recommend this clinic for actual veterinary care. Boarding is great but healthcare leaves some to be desired in terms of knowledge and bedside manner.

Message from Riverview Animal Clinic PC

The old Motel for Pets was built in 1956 by Dr. Jack Baker. It operated as a boarding facility until 1984, when Dr. Arthur Serwitz purchased and renovated it to accommodate a veterinary clinic, the Riverview Animal Clinic. Over the years, the facility has undergone several small renovations and two major additions. The last addition and renovation, which was finished in July 1996, doubled the space of the previous facility. The clinic has reorganized its boarding facility to separate dogs and cats completely, while maintaining a comfortable capacity of about 200 animals that might stay there on a holiday weekend or popular vacation time. Its grooming facility has been increased and renovated to accommodate he new demands. The clinic has significantly increased its hospital space, going from three to seven exam rooms and enlarged its treatment area. It added an additional surgery suite, a separate cat hospital ward and an exotic animal ward. It also added an intensive care unit. Services include preventative health care, boarding, pet food and supplies, diagnostic testing, senior animal health care, emergency services, hospitalization, behavior counseling and treatment, surgery, grooming and dental care. The Riverview Animal Clinic is located in Birmingham, Ala.. Acupuncture Exotic Animals Homeopathy Reptiles Small Animals
