I can't my dog's nails myself so having just moved into the area, I called around and one vet wanted to do a full exam on my dog just to do her nails! Ridiculous. This vet told me it would be $22 so I took her over there. As my dog has

The East Valley shelter sometimes sends animals here for spay/neuter before releasing them. The first time the staff was so afraid of the cat that they would not take him out of the carrier. And as it turned out, the world's meanest cat

We've been going to Dr. Birr for over 10 years with many pets, both our own and foster and rescue animals, and she's the best. We've tried other vets & they just don't compare. Dr. Birr is no-nonsense, practical, honest, compassionate,

A friend recommended this clinic because the Vet is really good. However the young blonde lady at the front desk has terrible customer service skills. I called to ask about the hours "please hold and the receptionist never got back to me"

I've been taking my dogs to this facility for a couple of years now after switching vets due to expensive care, rudeness, and long wait times. I found this place and compared to the 3-4 other vets I've been to, CVC has affordable rates and they've always been upfront about how much things cost. I like that the Dr. Birr has access to my dogs' history in the treatment rooms and I don't feel bad to have to ask how much things would cost. Also, Dr. Birr takes her time to explain things and I don't feel rushed like she's just trying to move on to the next patient. All the techs. are nice and helpful, some may be nicer than others, but never exerienced any rudeness. I've also never had a problem scheduling appointments for the same day, they are very flexible accomodating, and no long waits. The only thing that I was a bit surprised is that I didn't get any after-care instructions (in writing) regarding what we should do to take care of my dogs after they were neutered, but they did provide verbal information once I asked more detailed questions. Also, another downfall is that there are no weekend hours (I think, at least not when I wrote this). By far, the pros outweight the cons. I wouldn't go anywhere else and I highly recommend this facility.

I knew that they would ask for an additional $45 and say the cat was in heat. IN DECEMBER? No!!! They told the 3 cat owners before me the same thing. I called her on it and ask why they also pushed selling me pills for feral cats? Stay away.. there are other low cost spay neuters.. try cat nippers for ferals??. AND CAT DIED NEXT DAY!

I have been going to Dr. Birr's for 7 years and she's been a great vet!! . She tells you straight out what's wrong with your'e pet!! & she does not rip you off!! She's also had several receptionist thoughout the years. But, I think she finaly found good ones.!! Wendy and Veronica they both are very friendly and have lots of patience. And cant forget Susan the nicest tech there that's always willing to bend over backwards for patiens.

Although they do get very busy on Mon, Wed, Fridays they are still great!!!

Now, I only give 5 stars to restaurants. That being said I have used Community Vet Center maybe 4-5 times to help my Jack Russell's itching problems. I have not had a problem with any of the staff, doctors or services. Today I had my 12 year old German Shepherds teeth cleaned and one extraction for a cracked bad tooth was needed. I was very nervous having her put under but she seems fine and is resting happy at home now. The doctor a cute gent with a British accent (I did not catch his name) explained everything he did. I guess teeth cleaning is normanlly pricey. $145 bucks and $45 for the extraction. I also paid $135 last week for pre-op b lood work. But so far I like them and feel comfortable going there.

They DO need to trim back the tree in front of their building. I can NEVER SEE the building and its right there on Burbank Blvd?!

My cat was neutered and seems fine. However.... they did tell me that the price for the post operative pain injection was $18 and charged me $25. They would not charge me what they quoted. He claimed to be misinformed. They also charged me incorrectly for a toy that I brought back & returned & would not charge me what they quoted. Holy bait & switch!
I doubt I will return & would not recommend... I am SO Irked!

We started going to Dr. Birr just by chance when we adopted a dog- when our dog got sick Dr. Birr and her staff went above and beyond. I took my dog every week for four months until we decided it was best to let her go. Through the whole process Dr. Birr was amazing, as she made a very tough time bearable.

When we adopted a new dog she was so excited and happy for us- but she still remembers Marty our dog that passed away. It gives me a warm feeling to know that Marty has a place in her heart too.

We have been going to Dr. Birr for 12 years. We started with her when she was in Eagle Rock and have followed her to North Hollywood! She is fantastic. She tells it like it is and we love that about her. She has been very kind and our dog Dottie just loves her! She takes the time to talk to me about Dottie and her health as she ages. I would not go to any other vet, ever!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Dr. Birr for all the advice and care you have given Dottie, she is still a strong and healthy pup at the tender age of 12!

I have been going to Dr. Birr for 5 years now. She has been nothing but honest with us. We go there for shots, check-ups, meds, vitamins, food, teeth cleaning, etc. We've had to go to another vet when she was out of town and were charged $2,000 for a very simple procedure. We've gone to her to get 2nd opinions and most of the time, my dog didn't need the unnecessary surgery. Most of her staff is nice and a few were inexperienced. She tells it like it is and you won't pay an arm and a leg because the office is no frills and they don't have a high overhead. Dr. Birr loves animals--she has dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, horses, etc.

The other review is right - Dr. Birr does not sugar coat things and definitely tells it like it is, which is refreshing, but I really think she is a great vet. She was very good with my cat and wanted to take her home to keep an eye on her. She could use a new receptionist (sometimes rude and doesn't know very much, it seems) but Dr. Birr and her nurses are all very good.

I've been going to Dr. Birr for over five years now and I have been treated in a professional manner every time. I believe that in order to give a somewhat accurate description of a person you have to at least know them for a couple of years. The doctor herself is deticated to her work, patients, and staff. I know that I have met numerous people that have been going to her office for years, they know that she can be trusted. Any thing that she recommends for my babies I will do. I became a pet parent knowing that eventually I would have to pay medical costs and have routine visits, I love them and will do whats best for them. No one is perfect and everybody has a bad day, so for all of those who have had 1 bad experience I recommend to give the place another chance. Anyone who cares about animals as much as she does and as honest as she is will always have my recommendation 100%. Hope you make the right choice.

I couldnt imagine working with this doctor she is rude to her staff.
I took in my dog to get a basic check up and she added a $30 de worming medication without even consulting me first, my dog had already had that at a different vet and when I confronted her about it she didnt make things clear at all and basicly told me it was too late and to accept it. I heard her yelling at one of her staff memebers because she took a 20 minute lunch.
very unprofessional.I will never go there agian.

I have been going to Dr. Birr for over 15 years now. She is an excellent doctor and her clinic's prices CAN'T be beat. She's not all lovey-dovey, though, she tells it like it is. So if you're looking for a doctor who sugar coats things, she may not be for you. But I highly respect her opinion, and recommend foregoing the sugar for the truth. She always spends time at seminars learning new things and keeping up to date w/ the current technology. The clinic isn't fancy--but the care is excellent.

I called to make an appointment and the people were terrible; just mean and uncaring. They treated me horribly on the phone and wanted to charg an arm and a leg for the spaying of my kitten. These people are rude and unworthy of our business!
