Problem: My indoor-only cat had loose stool
Cost: over $1000 in just two consecutive days
Result: My cat's stool is firmer, and cat is doing fine.

Many unnecessary procedures were performed (barium, 2 sets of x-rays, organ checks, laxatone, muscle spasm medication which we never gave our cat)
All of the tests came out normal and the vet still does not know why she had loose stool.

I highly doubt that all of these procedures were necessary. The prices were outrageous. I consulted with a friend who said that the X-ray prices for her cat were half of what Crenshaw Animal Hospital's vet charged. Furthermore, they never consider giving discounts to long time customers. If I would have kept playing his game, the vet would have added an ultrasound to the list of unnecessary procedures (another $350 just for loose stool).

Recently, without permission, the technician (under the vet's orders) vaccinated my cat only two months after she had already been vaccinated. This can cause an onset of sarcoma (cancer) in cats. Mistakes like these should not happen.

Update: Dr. Yoo should not be licensed to practice veterinary medicine. Based on my experience, he has acted like a sleazy businessman instead. We had Dr. Yoo check our cat for Giardia. The results according to him showed our cat positive. He was ready to prescribe Giardia medication but I was hesitant and suspicious seeing that this was the 4th time our indoor cat came up positive after being vaccinated by him. Dr. Yoo was pushy in administering Giardia treatment, but we rejected it.

We then had her checked by an extremely reputable vet clinic in the South Bay which found that our cat was NEGATIVE and that there were no traces of Giardia cysts.

Dr. Yoo is a veterinary drug-pusher who should have his license revoked.

Pros: none

Cons: put my cat's life at risk, administered uncessessary medication procedures

This place provides horrible services. Why? read this..
1. Their diagnosis was in wrong ways. They gave a vacination to my pregnant cat. I consulte with another vet, they do not recomment to do that. It was high risk to my cat and it caused my cat to die.
2. They gave FELV, AIDs, and Rabies vacines to my cat without even test for FELV and AIDs. Basically, the vel will test FELV and AID before giving these vacine. But they did not do, so my cat has been in a serious health problem.
3. Every time I visited, they would try to persuade me for checking other stuffs which cost me a lot of money and they are not necessary.
4. One of their doctor talked with me " I do not spend time with you any more" and he leave the room..So what? I was his customer and my cat got sick. I asked him what happen with my cat. The only reason which I got from him was " I also do not know what happen to your cat". I paid almost $ 500 for this answer?? I asked myself.
5. I do not recommend anyone bring your pet to this clinic because you will have to pay extra money for stupid things. For example, they charged me for laxotone ( one supplyment) $25 but I saw the same product in pet supply. it is only $9...They over charge me.
6. I also consulted with the other vet. She recommended me not visit this place anymore because their results lack of professional experiences.

This is from my really experience. I was really disappointed from this place. I just want to share my worse experience to others and just hope that you will not meet this bad situation the same as me.
