They do their jobs well but this place is a rip-off. They overcharge for EVERYTHING and push tests and procedures they aren't necessary. I took my 2 dogs for their annual (which they get every year so they weren't behind on immunizations

I have known Dr. flood for many years, as he was with Dr. Hill in PV prior to having his own practice. The Dr Flood I knew from the beach was a kinder veterinarian who was more interested in animals than money. He now has to pay for that

I could not disagree more with the negative comments about Dr. Flood and his staff. I brought my partially paralyzed dog here on a busy Saturday after seeing my usual vet. Dr. Flood was like a breath of fresh air. He spent so much time

I think Dr. Flood is knowledgable and friendly and has a good disposition with animals. Unfortunately, I think he is missing the Business 101 side of his practice. His practice pushes unnecessary blood work as if it's necessary and performs tests and charges you for them without any discussion about the costs, etc. \r\n\r\nThe last straw for my husband was when he took our 6 month old German Shepherd in and Dr. Flood's staff was trying to sell my husband a panel of blood work...for a six month old puppy. For me, the last straw came when we decided to switch vets and I called the office to get a copy of our dog's medical record. The staff person was very rude to me and told me that ""Dr. Flood would have to authorize the release of the record."" Ummm....I thought that since I was the one who footed the bill for all of my dog's care, I kinda had the right to have those records, irregardless of whether or not Dr. Flood wanted to release them. Very strange... \r\n\r\nFinally, their prices are extremely high. We switched to another vet and were shocked to find out how much lower we should have been paying at Flood's office.\r\n\r\nWe were initially warned about this practice by some of my husbands own patients, but thought we would give him the benefit of the doubt and see for ourselves. Unfortunately, they were right...I hope that Dr. Flood realizes that he loses a lot of customers because of his poor business practices.

My experience at this place was poor. I took my pet in and the staff was very rude and unfriendly. In my opinion, I did not feel that this place really cared about pets only money. The prices are also very expensive compared to other vets in town.

Seemed to care-raved about him but he preformed blood work that was unrelated to heart failure-doesn't discuss tests w/ you, but you get BILL on checkout-dog had obvious heart failure but billed for thyroid test and blood work. Dog died 7 days later but that is not Dr. Flood's fault-never questioned the 330.00 bill and sent thank you card.\r\n\r\nTook different dog in 6 mths. later, Whole different experience.Saw weekend vet, again, without any discussion of what tests are for or costs, gave antibiotics but nothing for underlying reason for pneumonia (old dog=heart failure=Lasix)\r\nThat bill was $488.00 due to EKG and chest xray. This weekend vet even said dog had irregular heart rhythm but nothing prescribed for that. Gave dog first pill, she threw up so I returned it to Dr. Flood\r\n\r\nI took dog to Herschel (great new vet there) and dog doing much better. And their same prescription was exactly half the price Dr. Flood charged. HALF and office visit was half.\r\n\r\nI received call from Dr. Flood's office today saying they wanted to schedule my young (not old like above) dog for a 6mth. blood workup/wellness exam...when I said I don't do that, she responded:""well, then have a nice day"" and slammed phone down.\r\n\r\nThat semi-annual full blood workup seems to me to be clearly just a way to make money. And looking over their recommended exams, they don't even list a 6 mth. workup. Are you kidding me? Who has the money to do clearly unnecessary tests on their pets. and since when does a vet need patients so badly, they call and solicit for tests---And when you decline, they become rude and hang up with ""have a nice day"" remark.\r\n\r\nYou'll will wait at Herschel but Dr. Banks seems good and really liked Dr. Claxton a lot (she's only there on weekends, though)\r\n\r\nI think Dr. flood is knowledgeable and caring but don't leave your brain and common sense at door. Times are rough for everyone, vets included. Loving your pets does not include throwing money down the drain-not going to help anyone except person overcharging.\r\n

We love Dr. Flood and his staff. Recently we had a kitty get sick on a Sunday. We called Dr. Flood and guess what he and his staff were in. We rushed in and he gave her an examination. So that my time was not wasted he said for me to go back home and he would call me with the diagnosis. He called me with in an hour and gave me the news. The news was bad but he and his staff made the loss easier than it would have been. Thank you Dr. Flood for being open for our animal friends on a Sunday. You will never find a more caring vet than Dr. Flood and his staff.

Nice, convenient facility but you will pay for it. Their fees are extremely high and it will cost you an arm and a leg just to walk in the door. I've had several pets and have used half a dozen vets in Jacksonville over the last 20 years. My current pet has had a recurring health condition which requires medication and the vet said he would work with me. However, now changed his tune saying I need to bring my animal in for a recheck before future prescriptions with be given. I've already spent $800+ at this clinic on the same health issue. Another recheck will cost me a minimum of $100. I'll be looking for another vet.

Pros: Nice facility with great location.

Cons: Expensive - out to make a buck.

Dr. Flood is awesome! I have taken ALL my pets to see him over the past 12 years at the different practices he has worked at. He has proven to be well worth the travel to receive such insightful care! Now he owns his own hospital and what a facility! It is beautifully designed, spacious and spotlessly clean! His team members genuinely seem to love their work and the rewards of working with animals and such a great vet! They are efficient and pleasant...if they don't know the answer they will certainly find out! I recommend Animal Care @ Twin Lakes without reseravtion! You will be impressed!
