Dr. Thurman is definitely a world class vet! She is not only knowledgeable, but is also kind and caring with her patients and their humans. Dr. Thurman took care of my dog, Charlie, though many a health crisis. When I finally had to let him go a few months ago, Dr. Thurman provided a kind & gentle exit from this world for Charlie. I will always be grateful to her & her wonderful staff.

I found a stray kitten at my job. I searched reviews online and found Desert Sage to be the best. I called and was put on a kitten plan. When I arrived the staff was very professional and friendly. They really paid attention to my new kitty. I don't think I can say enough about Dr. Thurman and the staff. They love animals and treated my kitten like the special kitty he is. I had no idea how to raise my kitty or what kittens needed. They were very informative and carefully led me down the right path. My new kitty has all of his shots, heart worm pills, he is neutered and microchiped!
I almost forgot the cards. They took a picture of my kitten and sent me a card to provide to groomers or emergency clinics. It has all of my kittens stats on it. Including his microchip number. I also have one for my key chain so I can brag about my kitty and show everyone his picture. I am very impressed.
Thanks to everyone at Desert Sage!

I have been going to this clinic for 15 years and have moved across town and STILL bring all my cats there - won't go anywhere else! I can't say enough good things, and everyone I have recommended DSVC to has had a VERY positive experience. I have always been surprised how low the bill is at the end of the visit. The staff is like family, and I feel my cats are in great hands when they are there. My friends with dogs have had the exact same experience. Dr. Thurman is so wonderful to deal with, and only wants what's really best for the animals Dr. T is great at diagnosing problems before they get worse (and more expensive to fix). Sure, they don't spend money on a fancy location - but their customers would end up paying for it with higher prices. It is clean, neat, sanitary, and my only qualm is that I do wish they were closer to me, but it is all worth the trip from ANYWHERE in the valley for this kind of professional and friendly service.

Dr. Thurman is great. She could have a waiting room full of patient and she still takes the time to answer all my questions. Her staff is friendly and professional. Dr. T. always follows up the next day. All my dogs are her patients and she treats them like her own.

I can not say enough good things about Dr. Thurman! She is absolutely amazing and each time I have had to bring my dog in to see her I have a great experience. The entire staff is sweet and caring and all truly love animals. As other posters have said they do call you back in a few days or less to check on your pet if their was a diagnosis. My dog has gotten blood work done and I receive a phone call the same day usually within 2 hrs telling me what the results were! I fully recommend Dr. Thurman and the Desert Sage Veterinary Clinic

I took my 5m old kitten Jack to this clinic, due to having a bad experience at VanAken Pet Hospital. My kitty needed his back leg checked and I have to say I am very happy and pleased with the outcome and my whole experience there. As soon as I walked in, I felt so comfortable with the atmosphere and I knew instantly that this clinic is where I was going to continue to go for Jack's health care. The staff are great and friendly and the Doctors were AWESOME!! I would give anybody a referral to this clinic when it comes to good service and wonderful staff. They really are a caring and down to earth clinic.

I brought my cat in to see Dr. Thurman - she is an older cat that began passing blood and was vomiting. Dr. Thurman diagnosed her with a severe bladder and kidney infection and put her on strong antibiotics. When we originally called, Desert Sage got us in the SAME DAY even though we were new patients. Dr. Thurman is amazing - very professional, kind and caring plus the rates are very reasonable. She called first thing the following morning to see how our cat was doing. Incredible! We will be bringing all of our animals here and would highly recommend them to anyone needing a great vet in Phoenix.

My little 4 pound dog contracted kennel cough from a 70 pound dog. Amazingly enough, Dr. Thurman was able to get me in on a Saturday!! Dr. visit and rx for $40!! Not to mention they called me back 3 (YES 3!!) times to check on him. The staff here is awesome!! I would highly recommend Desert Sage!!

I first met Dr. Thurman when I moved to Phoenix in 1999. My brother-in-law recommended her. In his opinion, she practically "walked on water". Another vet wanted to amputate the leg of his 6 month old pup. Because of the skill and care of Dr. Thurman, that pup is (still) running on all fours at 100%.
Dr. Thurman made a very early diagnosis of Valley Fever in my new kitten and saved his life. After moving away for 4 years, as soon as I returned to Phoenix, I located Dr. Thurman and re-introduced her to that kitten, now 9 years old, and my other adopted cat.
You could not ask for a more knowledgeable and caring doctor. She has a great team of caring professionals.

Dr. Thurman is great! She is warm, caring and knows her stuff!! The office is NOT downtown as stated by another reviewer. It is an extremely convenient location right off the I-17.

I have been going to Desert Sage for over a year now and could not ask for a better Vet and staff. They helped so much when my rescue puppy was recovering from parvo. They are amazing and comforting when you have to make that hard choice of putting your cat to sleep....and they go above and beyond in this area. They realize it is a hard choice and they give you options and do not judge or make you feel guilty for the choice you make.

Please remember Vets have a hard job working with patients that dont speak and owners that do. They use human equipment and dont get the benefit of cheaper prices....if you are like me and would do anything you could for your furry babies....Desert Sage is the place to take them.

They give you the cost up front and options and realize that not everyone has millions just laying around.

Thank you Desert Sage for being a great Vet Clinic!!!

I recently took my animals (1 dog & 2 cats) into their office for their check-ups and was very pleased with the way this office is ran. I was very pleased with the way Dr. Thurman cared for our animals. She seems like a true animal lover. I definetly would recommend this place to other people.

I have two cats and a dog and everytime I come to this clinic when they need help or are sick. The prices are affordable and they offer financing plans if you do not have the money. No sick animal should be left to get worse. The vets earnestly care about your loved pet, and they call you if anything changes. Parking is spacious, but they are located down town. For some this may be an inconvenice since down town is not always the best place to be when the sun goes down.

Dr Thurman and the staff are awesome animal people. My dog Angel was put to rest. I didn't have to go through the process alone. I was given a paw print from Angel. The staff sent a beautiful sympathy card. All these things helped me

Staff can make or break it. Thurman is very professional and "politically correct" with clients. Unfortunately one of her staff techs just hasn't learned that skill. Receptionist is hard to read; don't know if she is nice or not...kinda "out there". Sometimes difficult to get her to loosen up. Hint: do not question anything and you will love this place. Unfortunately, there is a little bad habit of downtalking other vets which is not good AT ALL. Too much gossip and clichishness. Uncomfortable for me.

I have been seeing Dr. Thurman for about 3yrs. with my basset hound and a great dane. She and her staff are very friendly and know my dogs by name when i call to male an appointment. They make the extra effort to accomadate any special needs you or your pet may have. I have a 20yr old cat who is an indoor cat and hasn't been to a vet in 19yrs,they made it very comfortable for her on her visit with very little stress. They are there to answer questions and concerns over the phone and the staff actually calls you back when you leave a message. I recommend Desert Sage to everyone i know.
Thanks Dr. Thurman and Janet.

I finally had to take my 22yr old cat in to be down. Dr. Thurman made me feel very at ease with my decision as hard as it was. She talked to keisha and us the whole time and that was nice. Thanks Again for your wonderful bed side manner and being so personable with us. You made me feel very comfortable in a sad situation.
