I've been going here for about 4 years, and they are wonderful. They take as much time as necessary to discuss what is wrong with your pet and the different options available. If they feel it is time for a specialist to look at your pet, they will not hesitate to refer you. I don't feel they are just trying to take your money as so many vets seem to do. And the fact that Dr. Silverman is so willing to help out homeless animals tell you all you should need to know. If you want your pet to have a loving, caring place in which to be treated, this is the place to go!

Very good experience. Took my two 16-week kittens to be vaccinated here. Thought I'd walk since I live close to the office, but I had no pet carrier yet and they ended up pooping/vomiting all over the box I put them in. The clinic staff were so nice and understanding, helped me clean them up, and even gave me a pet carrier to go home with. Dr. Quim was a young, cool vet who did a great job. The vet tech was a NATURAL with animals. And the prices are the best in the neighborhood.

I've gone to Dr Silverman's clinic for 10 years & generally found the care to be good. but when my dog developed an autoimmune disease & a persistent respiratory infection for about 1 1/2 years, i found their attention to chronic health problems and follow-up wanting. they only provide traditional therapies like antibiotics & prednisone (a steroid). my dog was never completely cured & he suffered sporadically for over a year, as he had a hard time eating, coughed, & had large amounts of sputum that he threw up. each time, Dr. Quim changed to a stronger antibiotic & the last one was also very expensive. Over $300. he could not suggest a different route to cure my dog but to keep him on strong antibiotics. he is very nice but very passive. if you want your animal treated, you need to be very proactive, a lesson i learned the hard way. \r
dr silverman must have the worst bedside manner-- the day i brought my dog in for severe dehydration, he came in & didn't say hello or any type of acknowledgement. he looked at my dog's xray from months ago & casually mentioned that he had an enlarged esophagus & that's why he may have had recurring infection, bec. the food was going down the wrong tube. he said he should be eating at a higher plane (face level)-- NO ONE EVER told me this. i told dr. quim many times that he had a hard time swallowing, without any kind of constructive advice. \r
my dog was admitted for overnight stay but i was not told how serious his condition was & the next morning i received a phone call that he had died. this was a complete shock. this clinic is not a certified 'hospital', so they don't have an overnight staff monitoring the animals. who knows whether he could have been saved if someone had been there to watch him. \r
I used to like to go here because it's a small practice but be aware of its limitations.

Pros: small practice

Cons: only traditional treatments; not good with treating chronic ailments

.

Very expensive! The vet and assistant were nice but the office staff definitely leave something to be desired.

Pros: Nice vet, good diagnosis

Cons: Super pricey, cranky office staff

I have been going there for 3 years now, and I must say the staff is wonderful. There are 3 vets, and each one is fantastic. Dr. Quim (who took care of my beloved St Bernard, and now my boxer's Dr.) is so nice, and very knowledgeable. It's a friendly place, in a nice location, and they also do grooming.\r
