I brought my 18 year old cat into the Clinic, she had problems with her teeth and gums and was in pain. Dr. Nicklaus saw "us". She was very compassionate and had my cat's best interest at heart from the get go.She was also very understanding of my attachment to my pet! She explained everything down to the costs involved.
Our cat is doing well; it was a battle, but she won! I am very happy to have this Clinic being run by such competent, caring, professional Vets! Thank you for the care you bring to your profession and to our little town!

I was very pleased with the moderate prices for spaying as well as the friendliness of the vet, Dr. Tang. The clinic also filled my needs for eye exams for my older dog and even faxed them to the eye vet who would have been much more expensive! I don't know why there are so many negative reviews here, my experience with both dogs has been positive!

BEWARE!!! This is NOT Dr. Martin's practice anymore!!! Note how many comments below are warning people!!! This has become a surgery-happy joint, and my dog was KILLED BY DR. SAGARTZ two months ago!!! He performed a surgery I expressed doubt about - my dog was quite old - and assured me my dog would be fine. My dog was dead within 2 1/2 days!!! note similar comments below from others!!! DO NOT USE THIS CLINIC ANYMORE!!! You put your pet at GREAT risk!!!

Horrible!
I went in to put my cat to sleep after making the decision.

First, my Wife and cat waited in the car. I wanted to make sure the doctor was ready, which is not out of the question in a case of putting an animal down. Yes, making the doctor wait for a change.They said yes, he's ready. Well, he wasn't. We waiting for about 10 minutes.

He came in to give the pain killer injection and said he would be back in 3 to 5 minutes. He then came back, and started shaving my cats front arm. A scary thing for a cat that doesn't like the vets office. He then started to give the fatal injection, my cat struggled. The doctor said, I'll need to give him more. He left the office, came back gave him another shot, and left.

He came back in and said, "that should do it" and shaved or cleaned up the place he had shaved before. Apparently, not good enough for him. Then he administered the fatal shot. My Wife rushed out of the room finally, just before death.

The doctor never used our names or my cats. My Wife thinks he didn't even know if he was a boy or girl as he just used the name cat.

There was no compassion at all, no dignity. Putting a cat down has to be the worst experience anyway, but this office didn't help things, in any way shape or form.

I then sent them an email requesting my other cats records, and to inform them how they could have been a little more compassionate of the situation to better their practice. They never responded.

I would not recommend this office to my worst enemy, let alone my favorite cat or dog.

I took my 3 years Yorkie, for tooth cleaning, and somehow, he end up with 3 tooth pull out! Definitly no cavites I believe; but the Clinic 'staff ( very rude the males that handle the animals)that make the cleaning ,broke the tiny teeth , probably with the drill machine. The front teeth that were so small were the ones that they pull out! The teeth that were supposed to be with cavities, never were shown to me. It my pet would have been a "show dog" he would been ruined!

the advantages of being a VET. instead a MD, is that pets can"t talk; and pets'owners usually don't sue for malparctice. It's hard to prove it.
i belileve my beloved pet was a victim of malpractice, wrong diagnose; wrong medication.
I took my pet one Saturday, and by early Monday, my pet was dead!

Please!!!! dont' take your pets to this Hospital, much less if it is an older pet. Indiscriminatory use of strong medicines, with dangerous side effects; rude employes , and a caotic busy place, make this Clinic, a "Russian Rulette" for your pet!.

I took my cat to this place one time and will never go back! I took my cat to get fixed. First off, Dr. Martin was rude and didn't want to take time in asking any questions I had. Then when I went to pick my cat up, the first thing, when the tech brought him out he was in the wrong carrier. Then when I told the tech, he got rude with me. When he brought my cat out in the right carrier, he ended up dropping him. He didn't apologize, just walked away! I will drive a hundred miles not to go to this vet!

I honestly do not know where to begin describing all the hard work and effort that Dr. Martin had put in to save our dog Sidney, not only did he accurately diagnose our dog's problem but he also stayed on top of the situation on daily basis. Everybody are saying the same things about Dr. Martin's reasonable charges and no none sense attitude, the best thing i could add to this review is his Compassionate heart, he genuinely cares not only for his patients but also the patients' owners. We cannot thank him enough !! we wish for his Good Health ,. Long Life and many many prosperous practice of veterinary medicine.

gratefully, Alice and Larry S

I have been going to Parkview for 14 years with various cats and dogs.
Dr. Martin is what I imagine an old-fashioned country vet would be-
direct (some may interpret as brusque, but I love his straight talk), smart
and practical. My dog cut his tongue on an open can and we had to rush him over as he was profusely bleeding. Doc was in surgery but within minutes had my dog stitched up. He brought my housekeeper's cat back from the brink of death, hospitalized him for about three days, and it was all under $200. It's not fancy, but it is clean and his prices are unbelievably reasonable. Sometimes by the end of the day Dr. Martin is a bit stressed
as he is the only vet, but I would recommend Parkview without hesitation
if you don't want/need a fancy/posh/expensive facility.

I used to take my dog here, but when I met Dr. Martin - I will never go back there! My dog was ill and Dr. Martin said she was in a lot of pain. My dog's passing was painful and b/c of technical ownership issues he could not give Lily something to let her go easier. I was charged for the shot that he never gave her! He was very rude and harsh. However, I must say, when I picked Lily up he was very sympathetic and a completely different person. His front staff was wonderful - although my one of my complaints is that they openly discuss patient information amongst themselves in the main office! The back staff was very rough in handling the animals. Too many cons, not enough pros to return.

PS - I found a great vet in Pasadena.

He is the greatest and most caring Vet I have ever been to. His clinic is spotless with no smells of any odors at all.

His rates are very reasonable, and his staff is just excellent. I have been taking my cat and dogs to Dr. Martin for many years.

I only wish that I had Dr. Martin for my personal doctor.

I had previously brought my cat here for an eye infection and that was resolved reasonably with antibiotics. It does seem that Dr. Martin is overloaded since he is the only vet there.

Then I brought my two cats in for vaccinations, and I was concerned about one of my cats who had gained a lot of weight and her nipples were swelling. I did not know she's pregnant because she's supposedly spayed, and these are the first cats I've ever had so I guess i couldn't tell the signs. Dr. Martin just said that she probably had a litter before and that is why her nipples are swelling. Two weeks later, she gave birth to 3 kittens. I could not believe that he could not tell she's pregnant. This incident definitely cast doubt over bringing my cats to this clinic in the future.

Dr. Martin is the most honest vet you will ever find. He cares deeply for all the pets and treats their owners as friends. His prices are fair. Dr. Martin was the cheapest dog spay anywhere around. His staff would never treat any animal harshly. Everyone there loves animals and he boards as well. He has rescue, as long as it is not abused. He is a decent human being and that is more than you can say about most vets that charge unbelievable amounts of money and drive mercedes benz.

My cat had a bladder obstruction. Took him to the Animal Specialty Group Emergency (after hours) clinic...big mistake. They only "temporarily" fixed the problem and had me in tears in their office. AND they overcharged me bigtime. The next morning, my cat was obstructed again...so I got on here read some reviews, and decided to go with the Parkview Pet Clinic. SO happy I did. They helped my cat for 1/3 of the price and he is doing wonderfully. The staff were straightforward and down to earth, and I got the feeling they really loved animals.

Anyway, if you have a choice and you can wait until the next morning to take your pet in, TAKE THEM HERE!

Honest, straight talking, no nonsense vet. Explains everything clearly and thoroughly. Seems genuinely interested in your pets health and well being and will not hesitate to refer you to a specialist if necessary. Staff also friendly. Prices very reasonable. I'm definitely going to switch vets and go to Dr. Martin from now on!

The office staff is Friendly, and the Veterinarians are great with my cats and dogs. Dr. Martin even sees rats. The fees are very resonable. Dr. Martin has been my vet for fourteen years. I recomend them to all my friends.

Dr. Martin and staff were very friendly and gentle with my cats. I was suprised at how calm my cats were around them, especially the male.
The clinic has a quiet and calm atmosphere (although the clinic could be a bit cleaner), and prices are very affordable. Unlike other pet clinic experiences I had, Dr. Martin seemed very honest and not so interested in making money by giving unnecessary shots to my cats. Dr. Martin and staff were easy to talk to and answered the questions that I had.
I am planning to go there again for check-ups in the future.

They cared for my cats, Blake and Cleo, for more than 10 years. His focus has always been on a healthy lifestyle even for pets and doesn't rush to do expensive drug therapies or treatments that have unproven - or unlikely - results. His focus on food and environment allowed our pets to live long, healthy lives and, when the time came, to die with dignity. His practice is very supportive and understands that many of us see our pets as family members.

PROS: Focus on natural cures and behavioral indicators of other issues. Sat hours
CONS: Not many. They close at 6 which can be hard depending in your work.

This is a compassionate, loving group of vets. They have taken the best possible care of our animals for many, many years. Pricing is competitive and they don't pressure into proceedures that you don't need. The groomers at the clinic do such a wonderful job that not even my cats are afraid of getting a bath. I think every vet clinic should observe the caring service given at Parkvies as a model of good service and care.

PROS: Best care for your pets, best service for pet owners
CONS: Parking is sometimes hard to find due to college
