My pet family and I love Greenleaf. We have been going here well over 10 years when it was Aussie Animal Hospital. When it changed over to Greenleaf, many of the old and dear staff stayed. No place is perfect, but this place has been the best for Wattie, Jaco, Leela, Beebe, George and Moonbeam.

As you can tell, the only good reviews were written in 2008 and 2009. Any positive 2011 review must have been writen by the owner. I lived in South Beach and went to this vet because the prior owner of my pet treated his animals there. This was back in 2008 before Alex took over. At that time, it was decent. Not great, but not horrific. Now, it's nearly horrific. First, no matter what the situation or emergency, Alex has NEVER come into the patient room with me and my pet except for once, despite our many trips in there. And Alex's demeanor is so rude and hostile and sarcastic and demeaning that both me and my husband wished that she never even came into the room. She has never taken my pet's temperature during any other visit. She never checked her teeth or did any other kind of evaluation. Basically, the nurse helpers do it all. Alex just stands there with a rude look on her face and asks degrading questions, blaming me for the fact that my pet has stomach problems. They charge up the ass for services but provide absolutely NO service at all. I had to ASK her to take my pet's temperature and then she acted like she was doing me a favor. I asked her about whether my dog has possible allergies. The vet nearly rolled her eyes, as if I just asked her the most inconvenient and idiotic question. My husband was shocked, and leaned over to me later and said, why does this lady hate us so much? Lol. It was that obvious. She said, well pets can be allergic to anything, there is no way of knowing. That was her answer. And that's obviously not true because their allergies can be determined. She didn't even give me a list of possible allergies that pets could have (i.e., chicken fat is a known allergen that is contained in many dog foods). In any case, I was charged $60 for a mere three minutes of time that the vet was in the room. She didn't do any examination at all. I had to ask her to apply the medication- which she did not do- she let the helper do it and was very rude the entire time. Also, the receptionist is also very rude. She scolds when you fail to make appointments every six weeks, without realizing that the appointments ARE SO EXPENSIVE AND WORTHLESS, that it makes no sense at all to make a follow up appointment. Why should I bring my pet all the way in the office, so that vet can refuse to even examine her. Then if she decides to do so, walks in stares at my dog, sits there like a silent bump on a log, refuses to answer my questions, rolls her eyes, and then walks out without taking her temperature or checking her body, or giving me any guidance or idea as to what is going on with my pet, and then be charged $60 for the exam, and then another $45 to apply the medication (the medication that I am paying $37 dollars for separately) and having a helper apply instead of the vet. I can apply the medication myself at that point. What's the difference? And why charge for it? Anyway, since Alex came on board, we have been wanting to go to another vet and finally we found one. Derk's Animal Hospital in South Miami. We moved, so it's not too far away from us but may be for others that are closer to Miami Beach. The doc here literally smelled my pet's breath, checked her teeth, took her temperature, hugged her, checked her bones, her ears, and massaged her back. He asked pertinent questions about her temperament, her health, her well being, her food, her dislikes, her triggers for diarrhea, her moods. Things that I have never heard before. I was blown away. Then he allowed her to keep her favorite blanket for the day, while she was getting treatment. He called me mid-day to give me an update and then scheduled 30 minutes later in the day for a meeting with me about her care, triggers for her illness, etc. and tips on prevention!!!! He even called the next morning to check on my pet! This is all stuff that you will never find at this place. It is bottom of the barrell in terms of care but VERY HIGH and needless cost, and very little actually attention. These people are RUDE, hostile, sarcastic, and demeaning. Seriously, stay away!!!

We have brought our dog, white lab, to the Greenleaf Animal Hospital twice in the last 10 months. The service has been polite and overall great professionals (a bit too expensive compared to other places in the area).

My dog's hunting instinct is triggered whenever she sees a cat (not for nothing but there is even an animal idiom that expresses it very well: "like cat and dog") and at GAH there are ALWAYS one or two lose around the office. You can imagine how uncomfortable it must be trying to listen to the vet's recommendation while your dog is pulling and barking towards the cat.

This situation prevents me from returning to GAH.

I went to Greenleaf Animal Hospital and was amazed from the moment I first walked into it until the moment I left! The waiting area was beautiful and I was shocked when I walked in that it did NOT smell like dogs it actually smelled Good (I guess I assumed that an Animal Hospital would smell like animals-guess I was wrong). The atmosphere was very relaxed and my puppy seemed to love it. They have the cutest, friendliest hospital cat named Blue that played with me and my puppy while we waited. Dr. Conejos was very friendly and compassionate, she treated me and my puppy like we were very her only clients and also as if we were friends. Dr. C and the entire staff made us feel very comfortable. The staff took their time with us and explained everything that a first time "mom" should know. Then they sent us home with a puppy pack full of the information they spoke to us about and also free samples of shampoo, Heartgard, and food. I have already recommended several friends to them, and if you want your pets to receive the best care you will take them to Greenleaf Animal Hospital too!!!

I took my dog to Greenleaf Animal Hospital and was amazed at how kind they were. Dr. Conejos is a wonderful and compassionate veterinarian. The service and care my pet and I received was above and beyond what I have received at any other clinic. I recommend all my friends with pets to Greenleaf!

They are completely incompetent and nearly killed my cat. The mixed up the bloodwork and tried to rush me into a $1200 radioactive destruction of my cat's thyroid unnecessarily. Then they secretly kept my credit card number and later began to add duplicative charges to my card without telling me or getting my approval to pad their bill. I took my cat to a better vet - turned out she was fine and only had a small stomach bacteria that was quickly fixed with four days of amoxicillin. Do not take your pet to these people!

I've taken my dogs here and they love it. The Dr. and staff are very genuine and kind. They offer affordable care and their office hours/days are flexible. I highly recommend them.

They are available for emergency service 24 hours a day. I was impressed when they put Terry Coth towels on the metal tables. They have a large comfortable clean waiting area. We have been given very good service and good care.

In an already expensive area for veterinary services, they seem to push it a bit further, in comparison to other places. They did accommodate last minute services needed. However, front office receptionist found it funny to call my dog ugly, and was of course, not funny to me.Vet who checked on my dog just seemed to go through the notions of the routine, and not care about any personal things. Will call animal services on you if you don't have your vaccines and tags renewed the SAME EXACT DATE as the year before, even if are now under another vet's care Good luck!
