We have a dalmatian who has just celebrated her 13th birthday following a series of physical problems which made it most unlikely that she would survive this long. Although that's probably due in part to her determination to survive, we could not have made intelligent decisions about her care without the help of Dr Bhakri, who has always been there to keep her safe and as pain-free as possible. Our dog has a heart condition, a huge tumor, arthritis in all 4 legs and possibly a cancer in one front shoulder. Nevertheless under Dr Bhakri's care she is living a happy and enthusiastic life and is able to pursue her interests, i.e. eating the trash, falling into the pool, stealing food off tables and all those things that elderly dogs are supposed to have retired from years ago. I can say in certainty that Dr Bhakri is responsible for giving her the best quality of life possible and I have no worries about recommending him to anyone.
Also, as someone else notes, he shows real care and concern for animals and doesn't seem to be in it solely for the money. So we are able to think of him as our pet's friend as well as being her vet.
Sadly it is necessary for any private doctor to charge according to their skills and what the market can stand, otherwise they wouldn't make enough to stay in business. So some costs can be frighteningly high if you don't have insurance or a solid income. But I never felt that Dr. Bhakri charged more than a reasonable amount, and he's never objected to us getting the dog's medication elsewhere for less expense. We're very satisfied.

I recently came back to ELC after several years when the previous Vet retired. Dr. Bahkri has recently seen both of my elderly cats and has been caring and concientious about each of their individual needs. His prices are very reasonable and his style is very matter of fact and simple to understand. I have been pleased with his recommendations and treatment plan for each cat. Highly recommend this veterinary office.

Dr. Bhakhri always shows honest concern and comforts whatever critter I bring to him. He never makes me feel like he is in a rush by hurrying through any questions that I have. It's easy to see that he has a soft spot for animals, which many vets don't have or show.

We trust Dr. Bhakri and his staff with our beloved companions. ELC Vet has shown us over and over again how much they care for our pets, are patient with us when we want more details on a medical condition in order to make an informed decision, and have gone above and beyond the normal provider/patient relationship.

Our feline companions are our family, and is important to us that they are comfortable with the vet and his staff - which they definitely are. When boarded there, they are spoiled in a good way.

Dr. Bhakri has excellent communication with us calling back to answer questions, calling us to follow up on our cat's recovery, explaining things clearly to us, and talking things through with us if necessary to make a treatment decision.

Dr. Bhakri knows how sensitive one of our cats is to medication and is very forthcoming with successful treatment suggestions that work without medication when possible.

Our older cat, almost 21 years of age, has been going to ELC since he was rescued 20 years ago. When the previous vet retired we were very concerned about switching vets; all those concerns were unnecessary. We attribute our cat's long life in part to the treatment he has received from Dr. Bhakri over the last few years. The geriatric panel he suggested the first time he saw him caught a chronic kidney condition in time to be treated. The steam room treatment just cured a sinus infection. The diabetes our cat developed after an illness in 2007 was treated so well that he is now in remission.

Dr. Bhakri recommends only the tests that are truly necessary, and never overcharges.

The 6 days/week office hours are very nice when a cat is sick - because the cat can be, and sometimes is, sick over the weekend, not just during the week. The extended hours on Wednesday are very helpful also.

One of our beloved companions was recently diagnosed with a rare heart tumor; for which Dr. Bhakri consulted many times (at no additional charge to us) with an oncologist. We kept trying treatments to improve our cat's quality of life back to a level which he would accept, which was difficult with such a rare condition with no known morbidity #s or acknowledged treatment path. He'd been kitten like, even though 18 years old, until 3 weeks before he died. Our companion died over a holiday weekend at the emergency clinic in SJ. Since he'd bit an oncology tech 2 days earlier in SJ, the mergency clinic wouldn't release his body to us. They wanted to send it to the state for testing, even though it was impossible that he could have contacted rabies. Dr. Bhakri and his staff were tireless in their efforts to have his body returned to us. Anna even offered (and we gratefully accepted) to bring his body back to ELC when it was released thanks to their efforts, since the sudden death was so difficult for us. Now that's what I call above and beyond.

We highly recommend ELC veterinary clinic.

We have a little Yorkie who always gets into something, thus, requires frequent visits to our vet. We always feel welcomed there -beginning from the front desk (Anna) to Dr. Hardeep Bhakhri. Everyone is very attentive, willing to listen and answer all our questions. A few months ago our little doggie got really sick and had to spend 3 days in the hospital, including nights. Every morning I called in the hospital to get a follow-up on our little one's health --Anna was always nice and warm giving us an update. Dr. Bhakhri always calls us himself on any updates re: our ittle one. We've already recommended ELC clinic to everyone we know with the pets. We found this place by an accident --and I am very glad that we became Dr. Bhakhri's patients!

We have an English Bulldog and well we're in ELC quite a bit due to his allergies and other stuff he gets into. Anna is a quite welcoming and warm as well as the rest of the staff. Dr. Bhakri is very knowledgable about this breed and quite good with our dog. We know our dog is in good hands when we go to ELC. We would highly recommend this vet facility.

The Vet that I had used for many years decided about a year and a
half ago to sell his practice and retire. I had to make a choice of
looking for a new Vet or continuing to go where I had taken my pets over the years.. I decided since all my dog's records were there, I'd give the new Vet a try, so I took my little Shih Tzu back to ELC Veterinary Clinic( which is located at 832 E. Fremont Ave, Sunnyvale) and met the new Vet, Dr. Hardeep Bhakhri.

My little doggie is very shy and gentle, but she was not afraid of
him at all. He was quiet and gentle, but thorough with her. He showed
a real rapport with and care for my pet. I appreciated that very
much. I have found him to be efficient, caring and attentive. I
especially appreciate the fact that they can do most tests and blood
work, X-rays, etc "in-house" thereby speeding up the diagnosis and
cutting costs of having to send lab work out.

I recently had to go into the hospital and a neighbor took my little
dog to Dr. Bhakhri to board while I was gone. She was on medication
at the time and they monitored her and took excellent care of her
while I was gone. Dr. Bhakhri called to see how we both were after I
got home from the hospital. It is great to have an efficient, caring
Vet and staff close to where I live, who not only know how to do the
"medical work", but how to give our beloved pets TLC, too. And the Senior Discount is nice, too.

I moved from San Mateo area to Santa clara and happened to find this vet hospital located next to seven eleven.I walked in and make an appointment for general exam.Front desk receptionist was very pleasant. I brought my dog in next week,doctor did a thorough exam and explained all the findings and recommended some dental work up on my 5 year old cockapoo friend.I was kind of scared thinking about the prices but when they presented an actual estimate it was almost half the price I spent last time in san mateo.Very good experience,reasonable prices and highly recommended.
