Bad medicine!!! Beware of the vet who provides service on Saturdays. Dr Charlotte is a part time vet at this clinic, fills in on Saturdays, and does not have a business card at the front desk. I'm not sure where she's from or if she practices medicine permanently anywhere but she is BAD!!!! Dr Charlotte put my pet on a treatment plan that sent him to the EMERGENCY VET. I spent thousands for the emergency vet to save my pet's life. The vet at the emergency clinic immediately took my pet off the medications Dr Charlotte prescribed. My pet has been off the medications and treatment plan Dr Charlotte prescribed for a year now and is in good shape. Better than ever! Happy, healthy, and energetic! I was reluctant to bring my pet back to the Chabot Veterinary Clinic so I continued to bring my pet to the emergency clinic monthly to monitor my pet's health after the ordeal. I am happy to say that I have my pet back thanks to the help of the emergency pet clinic. I wish I had never gone to the Chabot Veterinary Clinic. I'm sure the other DVMs are ok but there is no way I would trust my pet with Dr Charlotte.

My old blind cocker spaniel fell off my balcony in 2007. I thought she was safe but she landed at my downstairs neighbor's feet. They scooped her up and took her to Chabot Veterinary Clinic. Her collar had her name and telephone number on it. Dr. George Marmolejo called me personally and told me what happened. She had never done this before. He showed much compassion (and he wasn't even my vet!) and it was mutually decided to put Brandy down. A few days later, I received a condolence card with a lock of her hair. I am unable to have a pet right now but, when I can, I will sign up with Dr. Marmolejo.

I took my cat, Rascal there to have hit put down because he was old and sick. Dr George actually cried as he was gave the cat the shot. He gave me a huge hug and said that I was an excellent mom , that I cared for Rascal (who was 20 years old) as best as I could considering his age and health problems. He and Dr Sue are the best vets I have ever taken my cats to. They are compassionate, caring people. Rascal hated the vets but that day he actually purred for Dr George.

I just have to say that Dr. Marmolejo is the best vet I have ever been with. He is thee most caring person towards my dogs. I don't put up comments but I needed to get my comment out. He doesn't rush, always will take his time for you and his love for dogs really show. I had to put one of my dogs down one day, on a rush basis. The office was very busy. But he took the time to make it very serene for my last few minutes with her. Thank you Dr. G!!

I absolutely do not agree with the bad reviews. I have been taking my pets to Dr. Marmalejo since 1985 and have never once had a problem with any of the staff. They are always efficient, friendly and compassionate. I would not even consider taking my pets to any other clinic. My pets have had general visits and vaccinations, nail clippings and Dr. Marmalejo and his staff have helped me through the loss of 3 dogs. My current dog has recently been diagnosed with a lifelong illness and the staff have been nothing but helpful from letting me weigh him without an appointment to wrestling with him to trim his nails. He loves to jump up on the counter to tell them that he is there for his appointment and he knows where every cookie jar in the clinic is located! I would not trade Chabot Veterinary Clinic and it's staff for any other clinic.

I have to agree with some of these reviews here about the front desk staff. It's unfortunate that I cant even meet the doctors because I haven't been able to get through the front desk. The problem is I cant seem to give a good enough reason to get my pet checked out. All I want is a check up like people who want to stay healthy they need to get checked in case anything could be wrong. I've called twice already and both times have been turned down for an appointment. I'm confused because I'm beginning to think the only way to get checked is if I have a real emergency but that's what I'm trying to avoid. Each time I tried explaining myself I was talked over and left with no alternative to my problem even though I followed the first steps given to me by them which was a big waste of time. I'm going to try calling some other places in my area and see if a checkup for my pet is possible. I've heard such wonderful news about the doctors here at Chabot vet clinic but the desk is just too unnecessarily frustrating to deal with.

I just ended a call with Redwood Animal Hospital and it was so much easier to get the information that I needed it really melted the frustration and stress away from the last vet calls with Chabot vet clinic. I was able to plan everything with no hassle and it took a much shorter time than being confused and dealing with the other clinic. So far I'm liking Redwood Animal Hospital. I even got a quote for that check up for my pet and everything it was so much easier. This wasn't supposed to be stressful at all.

This place is awful, just so unprofessional and awful. The docs are great, hence the one star, but the front office staff, like other have said here (CHECK FILTERED REVIEWS TOO), are apathetic, idiotic chicks with barely a brain attached to their skull.

We brought our dog here with a bladder infection and the docs were great. However, because of the lack of communication, it took 3 hours to get a simple test and meds completed. I was shocked when my bill was $200 for something so simple, but I digress...

There blond receptionist is just that.... blond, dumb, and out of touch with reality. While I was checking out, I inquired about getting our dog neutered, here was the discussion:

Me: "How much would it be to get my dog fixed?"

Blond: "How much does he weigh"?

New assistant chick: "He weighed in at 65 pounds today."

Blond: "Ok so it would be $154.16 for the meds, surgery and boarding him overnight because of how much he weighs."

**So at this point I call my fiance and discuss with him to see if we want to move forward with the procedure based on what was discussed. We agreed this was a reasonable price and decided to proceed.

Me: "Ok we would like to make the appt."

Blond: "Ok, our first available is Nov. 2nd. Drop him off between 8 and 9 am."

NOW, fast forward to today, November 2nd.

My fiance drops off the dog. At the front desk is the dumb blond and some black chick. They inform him today that because of his weight (which is unchanged since a week ago) that it would cost $250.

Um, ok?

He gets home and informs me of this. I call them up and the black chick picks up. I explained with dumb blond chick had said the week prior and she puts me on hold. Black chick gets back on the phone and tells me:

"I'm sorry but whoever informed you of the price was mistaken. It's $250 because of his weight."

So I had to drive down to pick up the dog before they started the procedure. Dumb blond chick did not even look at me or apologize when I came in, probably because she knew she was wrong, and is a complete idiot.

It's unfortunate that such great doctors, who are really great with pets, and being managed by absolute incompetent and unprofessional little girls. They lost our business and I will be advising EVERYONE who crosses my path to avoid this place and find more intelligent and responsible staff to deal with.

AVOID THIS PLACE!!!

Dr. Marmelejo, is amazing! He was recommended to us by my cousin and we have never regretted switching over. He helped us when it was time to put down our precious Sarge and stayed with us and let us take our time. He is amazing, thoughtful, and thurough with our other 3 pups. We even would drive 2 hours when we moved to see him. He really does provide World Class Service to your four legged family member!

My Nora was diagnosed with diabetes, I was devastated, but with the kindness and love that Dr Marmelejo showe my dog was the greatest experience I have had. With his help, I got my Nora back on her feet acting like a pupp,,,Nora was 13 then. I made myelf a promise that I would do anything to give her a few more years with us. Chabot was kind, caring and compasionate with what I was going thru. Nora sadly died two years to the day she was diagnosed and I thank Dr Marelejo for letting me and my roomate have 2 extra wonderful years with Nora. We now have a new girl her name is Tesa and you can bet Dr Marmelejo will be her vet!

Dr. Carolyn Harvey is AMAZING for small mammals - we've taken our guinea pig there and the care is always excellent. She is very thorough and willing to answer questions.

I think these are the best you can find. I have worked for a couple of Vets. One was very well priced but the service was quite lacking. One was very high end and very high prices. These people do the maximum amount for the minimum amount of money.
And then aside from the money and ethical aspects, they care, they care, they care. There is a lot of heart over there. And the doctors talk to you on your level, they don't have that "I can't be bothered with questions" additude you can get. We have only been with them for 4 years and feel so happy to have them as our family Vet.

PROS: Quality of service, intellegence, courtesy, additudes and cost.
CONS:

Chabot Veterinary Clinic gets the Highest Rating Possible. They take expert and tender care of your pet from beginning to end. They were my vets from the time I moved into the Bay Area until the time I moved out, which was a total of 14 years. I wish they up and moved to Illinois with me, but they just couldn't leave their other beloved clients behind.

I know I'll never find another Veterinary Practice that will care for my pets as much as "Dr. George" and Dr. Hughes cared. With their help, I was able to have a very long and happy time with my pets. Emily (my Longhaired Chihuahua) was 16 and Tia (my cat) was 20 years of age when they passed. Because of the loving support I received from the Chabot Staff, and especially from Dr. George for helping me through my grief, I now have two wonderful Papillon's who fill my life and heart perfectly. George will always have a special place in my heart for all he has done for me, and I know he continues to do for all of his clients.

I encourage anyone and everyone to take their beloved pets to these Wonderful and Humane People. They'll never, ever let you down!

PROS: Reasonably Priced, Easy to Locate, Excellent Service, Very Respectful Staff

I have been going to this vet for about seven years. The staff is great and the doctors are very knowledgeable. My kitty and dog both feel comfortable when they are there. Their rates are reasonable and the staff sends reminders to me when my pets are due for their next visit. They even have a side for the dogs and a side for the kitties so neither one gets frightened. They care.

I found a dog on the streets and he looked thrown out and diseased. The dog had a huge wound and I immediately took it to the nearest vet I could find. The doctor said that it was a tumor and that it would cost $1000.00...It was really devastating and my family and I became really sad because it wasn't our dog to begin with and we had two choices: put him to sleep or to pay for his operation to get the tumor removed. The doctor was VERY generous and said that he would do the operation for 500.00. He cut the price in HALF. Although the dog didn't make it, the doctor was very kind and generous to do what he did. I wish that I could remember his name, but he was truly amazing.
