Dr Hoffman has looked after both my dogs and my cat. She is a wonderful vet. I have seen every other vet in the valley and this is the practice that I will now always come back to.

Very unfortunate situation because I love both Drs. and think they were wonderful however some of the senior staff members were way too rude and aggressive with me and my beloved pets. I even tried to bring this to the Drs. attention but she unfortunately was not phased that I was so mistreated by her staff. I wont get into details of the staffs abuse but in all my life I have NEVER been so belittled and mistreated by a Doctors office.

Not only do I adore Dr. Graesmehr and implicitly trust her judgement and skill, (I haven't gone to Dr. Hoffman, but many of my clients do and they love her as well), but the front desk staff are always willing and ready to go the extra mile. I own a pet care business and they know I have pet emergencies that crop up from time to time -- a sick dog, a cut paw pad, torn claw-- no matter what, they bend over backwards to fit me in so that MY clients can rest easy. I was referred to them by 2 clients and one of my dogwalkers, and I'm 100% satisfied by their care and expertise and I'm very critical when it comes to animal care.

Dr Hoffman has been my Cats Doctor since 1985, Back when the office was on Ventura blvd in Sherman Oaks.
She has always been good to all my 6 cats and helped me thru the tough times as well as the daily maintenance. Dr Hoffman Is Great.

I have taken 8 pets there over the past 2 years, and have found nothing but the best pet care available. The front desk staff may appear "short" but I think they are over extended and very busy. They definitely care about your animals and try to appease even when the doctor is running behind and you have to wait. I recently moved to hollywood and took my animals to another vet. Big Mistake! I plan on making the long trip (45 minutes) for their next check-up. I would recommend to anyone looking for a small town vet with unending knowledge.

I have been going to Tarzana Pet Clinic since 1983, before Dr. Hoffman took over. She and Dr. Grasmehr are both caring, competent vets. They have seen me through the care of many animals (of the canine and feline varieties), from the time I adopted them until their deaths. The front desk staff has sometimes not been the best, but having been to other vets in the interim (I've temporarily lived a few places other than the valley where I had to take my pets to the vet, plus I've had to see specialists) I think this is a problem with all vets - it's hard to find good people for the front. One of the things I love is that some of their back office staff have been there as long as I've been going there. I think that says something about their practice and it makes me feel good to know my pets are in familiar hands. Dr. Hoffman in particular has been very good about helping me through the decision process when it was time to have pets put to sleep. I always made my own decisions, but she always honestly answered the questions I needed answered to make the decisions. I can't recommend them enough.

Dr. Grasmehr has been our vet since we moved to Tarzana in 1994. She and the staff have been kind and compassionate with both our family and our pets. She is cognizant of the cost of an elderly pet and realistic about presenting outcomes and options. As our son has grown up with our pets, she encouraged his attendance at appointments and answered all his questions and concerns. Dr. Grasmehr is such an inspiration to him, he wants to become a vet. When our 19 year old cat died and we brought her body in, the staff treated us with respect and dignity.

I have been with Tarzana Pet Clinic for several years, Dr. Grashmer is was my vet, she is a pretty good vet but their business manager is a total jerk and some of the staff are very rude and aggressive. I do not recommend them to anyone. Their business manager is not an animal lover and he didnot care about animals. So I am trying to file a complaint against him. I am not going back there, they became awful.

Contrary to what one of the respondents indicated, we believe that the staff at Tarzana Pet Clinic are entirely professional, courteous and extremely efficient. They are always helpful and compassionate. Doctors Hoffman and Grassmehr are extraordinary veterinarians, who have seen our beloved dog through some very serious health issues. They have always taken remarkable care of her and we are indebted to them for their ongoing kindness, as well as for the excellent veterinary medical treatment they administer.

I can honestly say that I believe Dr. Grashmehr is a good vet, however her office staff are rude and insensitive. Maybe this is why her office appears empty at the times she treated my Scottie Terrier. I found her ofice staff phoney ad unconcerned about my pets wellbeing. I brought my second Scottie to her for an appointment on her day off. I had a scheduled appointment and took time off work. After waiting over forty minutes I asked the office manager, "Robyn" to find out how much longer I would have to wait. All I was told was that the Dr. was running behind. I finally had to leave. I called the office to rescedule that day but was denied an appointment. I was informed that maybe I was not a good fir for Dr. Grashmehr by the office manager. Do these people forget that I am the customer and I did have an appointment. Maybe this is why she does not have a busy proctice.

We've been taking our dog to this clinic since 1998 and have never had anything but the best, most attentive, most caring service from Dr. Grasmehr. The office staff and vets' assistants are helpful, caring, and accommodating in the extreme. We could not ask for better care for our baby or nicer people to deal with. Highly recommended!

I started taking my dog to Dr. Grasmehr at Tarzana Pet Clinic after a horrible experience with another vet. Dr. Grasmehr was recommended by the oncologist treating my dog's cancer. From the first moment I met Dr. Grasmehr and the staff at the clinic, I knew I was in good hands. My dog was very neurotic and definitely needed a lot of patience and care and she received it there. They were endlessly patient and caring with her and did their best to put her at ease. Unfortunately my dog had other health issues which meant frequent trips to the vet. The front desk staff was always very curteous and understanding and attentive to our needs. Dr. Grasmehr was fabulous about calling with test results and keeping me informed. She was also very conscious of the costs and I always felt like she was treating what was needed and not being excessive to line her pockets. When we finally reached the point where we had to put our beloved pet to sleep, we could not have asked for a gentler, more compassionate experience. I really cannot recommend them more highly. I've owned pets for the last 23 years and this was definitely the best clinic I've ever used. We moved out of state shortly after our dog's death and are now looking for another pet a year later. I just hope we manage to find another vet that is half as wonderful.

Our experiences with the doctors in this clinic have made us feel secure in knowing that our dog is receiving the most up to date and qualified treatment possible. Bugsy has had different problems which required immediate attention. From the moment someone answers the phone to the completion of treatment, we know that we are in a loving, caring and state of the art clinic. In addition, following a medical problem, the doctors are always following up after the visit to make sure the treatment is working properly. Like others, our pets are part of our family. Knowing our family is well taken care of is very important.

There must have been a recent change in the front office staff. They are very rude over the phone and I have moved and see no point in taking my dogs to Tarzana if the staff is going to be unhelpful and rude over the telephone. Dr. Grashmehr was great with my senior dog up until the very end. The phone staff is less than helpful, we adopted a new dog (rescue) and I contacted the office because, it had attacked and hospitalized my husband, well I got "look up petfinder.com" of course, that was worthless. I called today to find out if they could recommend any pet sitters for my family dog (not the one who attacked my husband and daughter - he is living with a pet trainer). I was told that they could not recommend anyone. The Vets are great if you can get past the staff on the telephone! My patience is running low.

We switched from Beverly Oaks Hospital (who were bad) to this vet. Tarzana Pet Clinic (Dr. Hoffman) is a fantastic Veterinarian. They got us a diagnosis when the other vet could not, their prices were consistently lower than the other vet, their staff was consistently MUCH better, and their vets were more compassionate and communicated better. Tarzana Pet Clinic even went out of their way to save us money by talking a specialist into doing a less extensive examination which lowered the price to accomodate our financial situation. Great vets, great staff, highly reccommended!

PROS: Staff, Veterinarians, Prices

I am the luckiest pet owner in the world to have found such a great place to take such wonderful care of my babies! These people are great - from the front desk staff (who actually acknowledge you when you walk in the door!) to the doctors and assistants - they are considerate, patient, gentle with my dogs and cats, on top of their game and good at what they do. Also, unlike other vets in the Valley, they don't create an unnecessary urgent need for your pets, so as to pilfer your pocket book. Finally, this clinic is not as expensive as some of the other clinics in the Valley.
All I can say is OUTSTANDING!
