Judgmental! Shakes her head at you and rolls her eyes. Doesn't believe what you are telling her and rolls and shakes her head again.

Don't judge when you really don't know!

Not only did she treat us horrible we also got ripped off.

I have great dane show dogs see them at www.bellavistadanes.com
I have been very please with the services Spokane Valley Animal Hospital has provided. I have found Dr. Stokes and her colleagues to be professional and to have a solid knowledge base. They've been very fair with pricing for services.
Another individual who reviewed this business called them young wannabe's or something of that nature....that's very ignorant. These folks have put in there time obtaining the DVM and because they are not to far out from graduation are likely to be at the top of their game with the most recent recommendations for standard of care.
My dogs like the office space and the staff and to me, that's how I assess bedside manor. I'll be continuing to take my dogs there.
Also, if you need a nice short crop for a boxer or dobbie, they have a vet there that does a nice job. I've seen his short crops.

I have two gorgeous 16 week old labs whom I adore. My previous lab lived for 15 wonderful years and I know labs are for me. Moving to Spokane from the west side of the state, I chose Spokane Valley Animal Hospital after a friend recommended them. I know more than anything I chose the right place!

The doctors as well as the staff have always been superb! I have actually had the privilege of having Dr. Stokes as my Vet. I'm not sure where some of the previous posters have had problems, I found her to be amazing!

Dr. Stokes has taken my calls when I couldn't bring my dogs in without charging me or having hesitations. I may be a bit on the cautious side and call more than needed, but Dr. Stokes has always been gracious enough to listen and offer advice. She may look young, but she makes up for it in her intelligence and compassion for animals.

I will also recommend Spokane Valley Animal Hospital to anyone. Their staff have always been kind and helpful!

Have you ever heard of the term known as "Libel?" It's a hell of a little law that protects people like Dr.Stokes from people like you. Here, read this little definition about it:
Defamation??also called calumny, vilification, slander (for transitory statements), and libel (for written, broadcast, or otherwise published words)??is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government, or nation a negative image. It is usually, but not always,[1] a requirement that this claim be false and that the publication is communicated to someone other than the person defamed (the claimant).

In common law jurisdictions, slander refers to a malicious, false and defamatory spoken statement or report, while libel refers to any other form of communication such as written words or images. Most jurisdictions allow legal actions, civil and/or criminal, to deter various kinds of defamation and retaliate against groundless criticism. Related to defamation is public disclosure of private facts, which arises where one person reveals information that is not of public concern, and the release of which would offend a reasonable person. "Unlike [with] libel, truth is not a defense for invasion of privacy."[2]

False light laws are "intended primarily to protect the plaintiff's mental or emotional well-being."[3] If a publication of information is false, then a tort of defamation might have occurred. If that communication is not technically false but is still misleading, then a tort of false light might have occurred.[3]

In most civil law jurisdictions, defamation is dealt with as a crime rather than a tort.[4]

A person who destroys another's reputation may be referred to as a famacide, defamer, or slanderer. The Latin phrase famosus libellus means a libelous writing.

Colleen, you better pray to God that Dr.Stokes does not pursue any legal action of her own against you!! Maybe you will think twice next time to try to go on-line and write your nasty messages about someone and their career!!

Colleenee,

First of all I would like to recognize everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but like we all know that some people should just keep theirs to themselves...take my advice I think you need it! I have been going to Dr. Stokes for a few years now and I have never been dissatisified with her professional service. She even saved by doxie when she was on deaths door after a mauling from a large dog. My dog went into cardiopulmonary arrest at one point and she revived her! If it was not for Dr. Stokes my dog would not be with me today. My question for you is why didn't you go to your regular vet... I'm assuming you have one since you have been raising dogs for "30 years" or if your such a professional dog owner why didn't you just take it out yourself if it was such a simple procedure! Have you ever thought that maybe it wasn't her, but infact it was you that was rude and your dog being uncooperative. Myself being in the healthcare field am so tired of people like you havig demands that just are impossible to meet regardless! I think you should think about your attitude and how unchristian your being towards a great vet that didn't deserve any rude posting from you!! And the rest of these people on here complaining about the fees we all pay for services rendered and the wait times...ever been to an emergency department on a friday night?? As for myself and my friends we are all going to continue going to Spokane Valley Animal Hospital cause they are caring and qualified to treat our animals needs. But then again we all have our own opinions.

I have 30 years experience with hunting dogs, took mine in for cheet grass in the ear, should be an easy removal. The "vet' did not introduce herself, wore no badge of identification, horrible bed side. Wanted to take my dog to the "exam room". (First red flag) I asked that the cheet be removed in my presence. Heavy sigh from Lori Stokes DVM, she brought back the tools, but fumbled with them at the counter as if she wasn't sure what to do (2nd red flag), some were clearly too long and not appropriate for a Brittany. I held my trusting dog while she made a stab at it, litterally, came up with nothing...suggested she bring in assitants to hold my dog down on her side (3rd red flag!) and if that didn't work, she suggested sedation. (NOT HAPPENING!) For a seed in her ear!!! I told her that never before have I had a vet miss on the first try , let alone the RISK and EXPENSE of sedation. This place is horribly understaffed by young want-to-be's and is not supervised by professionals. I was there at 5:40 pm and Lori Stokes advised me that she was the only "vet" on duty. They are open until 9pm...PLEASE do not take your pets there after hours. TAKE THEM TO THE REAL EMERGENCY CLINIC ON MISSION AND RUBY. This place needs to be shut down. I am also writingt to the DVM Board!

Used this clinic three times. Staff undertrained/overworked (1 Vet was on duty on one occurrence, had 2 emergencies and a room full of regular appointments to deal with). Messed my billing up, had to deal with their collection agency to straighten. F.

Pros: On Sprague

Cons: Place is generally awful

.

I found this clinic to be the cheapest for vaccines. I have used them for boarding and my dog loves it there. They know her name and remember I don't allow "kisses" on the face. They have been able to work with me on payments.I never feel rushed when I'm in my visit. I like this clinic and actually have recently switched all my pet needs to them!

Pros: Very Close to My House

Cons: I can't think of any

.

I would not recommend this clinic to anyone. They were rude and impatient and they made me feel like I was imposing on them by being there as a client. They did not correctly diagnose my cat with something simple like ear mites and instead made me pay all kinds of money for services and medicine that was not what he needed. Instead it cost me $250 at a different clinic to fix the damage they had done. NOT RECOMMENDED!

I'm very disappointed with the service I have been given here over the last two visits.

We brought our lab mix here to be kenneled two months ago for just a couple of days and returned to find he had a bad case of "indigestion" that would require 'additional care and treatment.'

When I recently left to take a trip to California for ten days to spread my husband's ashes, which they also knew of, I received several calls urgently requesting my reply to a certain 'insect bite' my dog had gotten and which needed immediate attention.

Obviously I consented and now the bill is well over $600 more than it would have been just for the kenneling.

I'm beginning to wonder how it is that I keep bringing my pet in healthy only to be notified while out of town and out of reach that my pet is once again sick in their care.

Pros: they're close?

Cons: feels like they're trying to scam you or merely taking poor care of your pet
