From Dr. M after explaining what really happened:
The safety and welfare of animals has always been the number 1 priority of MainStreet Veterinarians since our inception in 1995 and this was never more evident for Margaret Sinclairs cat Dusk. Dusk has been bathed here at the clinic without incident 8 times since July of 2013. However after she was bathed on 6/11/16 she resisted being removed from the cage by our kennel attendant to the point of total rebelliousness. We had the kennel person back off and I asked Ms. Sinclair to come to the groom room so Dusk could see her. Twenty plus years of experience has shown me that 9 out of 10 times when a caged upset pet next sees their owner then the pets anxiety almost immediately changes from fear and anxiousness to calmness and contentment. Strangely neither Dusk nor Ms. Sinclairs demeanor improved when they saw one another so I recommended to Ms. Sinclair (that because Dusk had now expressed her bladder and stool on her rear end) that she take Dusk home and we would have her bring the pet back for a free re-bathing Monday morning. Ms. Sinclair responded that she had a newborn and that she didnt want her own cat though a bit soiled in her house. In response, I recommended the garage for Dusk not knowing what the particular temperature of HER garage would be but that many garages (such as my own) are very comfortable as long as there is adequate ventilation and water available.
Ms. Sinclair adamantly declined stating that her garage would be too humid so I recommended that her pet spend the weekend with us at no charge and that we would re-bathe Dusk free of charge on Monday. Ms Sinclair agreed. Dusk was given access to food and water and Sunday evening the food and water were removed in case Dusk needed chemical restraint on Monday morning in order to bathe Dusk.
At no time was Dusk kept in a cage filled with excrement and denied food water and a clean litter box.
On Monday morning both the senior technician and myself attempted to remove Dusk from her cage and she again became recalcitrant. I called Ms. Sinclair and gave her the option of allowing us to re-bathe her with sedation or having her come pick up the pet as it was. She called her husband and she called us back allowing us to sedate the pet.
After sedation, bath and towel drying I called Ms. Sinclair to come retrieve her pet ASAP while she was still relaxed from sedative. She retrieved her pet without incident.
We as a clinic understand a clients concern over treatment of their pet (s) particularly when their pet (s) are under our care and we do our best to treat all animals humanely and with respect and Ms. Sinclairs pet Dusk was treated no less humanely. This was a difficult situation for all parties involved and I believe that the best decisions were made given the difficult circumstances we encountered.

DO NOT USE THIS VET. They always try to up-sell, but I was willing to forgive aggressive selling until it became clear they have NO concern for the animals. They are concerned about the money and not the welfare of the animals. Here is my story:

During a routine cleaning my cat became extremely agitated. She had been cleaned several times before at MSV with no incident; however, this time, there was. According to the staff, her behavior was unprovoked; I find this hard to believe. More disturbing than Dusks distress was the conduct of the veterinarian. Dusk became vocal, and her vocalizing and hissing were audible in the waiting area, at which point one of the receptionists seemed to go into the back to check, the receptionist returned and informed me that it was not Dusk making the noise it was another cat. This was a lie. Dusk had become so agitated and defensive that she urinated and defecated on herself. The problem was compounded when the veterinarian proposed solutions that ranged from gross to dangerous. The vet initially suggested that I take my cat (who I brought in for a cleaning and was currently covered in excrement) home and return with her on Monday. I expressed my unwillingness to do so and explained that I would not be willing to have my cat spread excrement around my house. The vets response was to suggest that I take my cat and leave her in the garage. This last suggestion was the most disturbing part of my experience. The vet suggested that I leave my cat in an environment that can endanger her welfare. Leave me the cat in the garage for two days, in the middle of the summer?

Left with few options, I left Dusk at MSV for two days. Unfortunately, this means the cat sat in her excrement for two days, spent Sunday unattended in an unfamiliar environment, and possibly require sedation. Monday morning I agreed to sedation so she can be cleaned. Upon bringing her home, she began to shake and twitch uncontrollably. She could not stand or walk. She is frightened of all blankets and panics when I reach for her. I have NEVER seen her in such distress. She keeps struggling to get to her food and water bowl as if she had not been fed or had water in the two days she was in Main streets care. I have taken video of her condition; it is disheartening. I am disgusted at the care my cat received at MSV and concerned about her current condition.

Our dog Abra, a Labrador Retiever, has been going to Main St Veterinarians since she was 2 years old. She is now 13. Dr. Moorhead has always taken wonderful care of her. When she was about 6 years old she was sick so we took her in. We found out through NRT that she had multiple allergies and were advised to cut certain foods out of her diet. It worked immediately. Since then we have been amazed at how quickly (and inexpensively) she can be diagnosed without invasive treatments and bloodwork.

Last summer my family and I went on vacation to Costa Rica. We left Abra in the capable hands of my my brother and sister in law. While we were away Abra got very sick and most of her internal organs started to shut down. They took her to Dr Moorhead with little hope that she would make it. But just a couple of days after seeing him she started to feel better and less than a week later she was running around as usual. Noone could believe it.

I am forever indebted to Main St Veterinarians, Dr. Moorhead and NRT for saving her life. I truly believe that she would not be with us today if he was not our vet.

Dr. Moorehead and the staff are not only technically extremely capable, but also consistently compassionate and caring--making you and the pet feel like you are the most important "people." Most dogs shake and are afraid at the vet's, but one of my dogs runs up to Dr. M or the staff and rolls over for tummy rubs and the other is jumping up for pets on the head. They love him and the staff--no easy feat.

Dr Morehead mentored me at the Atlanta Humane Society in the mid-late 1980's. He is a wonderful person, an excellent veterinarian, and extremely well educated. I would trust and recommend him without qualification.

I have noticed in some previous reviews the complaints center around the writers' tremendous lack of knowledge about veterinary or any other medical care. The idea of believing a "Breeder' over a veterinary medical doctor is common and totally ludicrous. The ONLY requirement for someone to call themselves a "breeder" is that they let two animals mate. ANY two animals. In fact, the term "breeder" is not professionally respected nor medicallyrecognized because it is contributing to the overall problem of poor pet genetics and euthanasia in shelters. "Breeders" are notorious sources of misinformation, but PT Barnum was right...there is a sucker born every minute.

Also, a cat or dog "in heat" can take 3-5 times as long to spay and can be a nightmare of a surgery, so charging $15 extra is absolutely a bargain when you consider the extra time, skill, and pharmaceutical costs to the doctor. $15 does not begin to cover it.

People do not listen. IMHO, miscommunication involves NOT LISTENING as much as not providing information, maybe more so. When people are concerned primarily with cost and saving money, the care and instructions for aftercare get pushed aside; clients are notorious for equating "Cheap" with "Good Doctor," and want excellent care for virtually nothing. Good care involves LISTENING and FOLLOWING ADVICE, not expecting a miracle cure with a "shot" or a "pill." You cannot feed "Ol' Roy" or "Special Kitty" or table food and expect good health results, and unfortunately most clients also think feeding whatever the pet likes ("People Food" or feed store/WalMart off-brands of "economy" kibble) is "spoiling" them. It certainly spoils the immune system.
Dr Morehead is wonderful and conscientious clients appreciate that. Those for whom it is too difficult to listen, too hard to follow advice, or who are of the belief that while it is okay for a plumber, electrician, car salesman, or banker to make a decent salary but a veterinarian who has to make ends meet is "only interested in money" should find a lower standard clinic who can accommodate that disgusting attitude.

The best in his trade. Caring, professional and overall ethical. Dr. Moorehead was able to take care of Fluffy's recurring urinary tract infection almost immediately. The alternative treatment worked like magic, although it took some change in diet and nutrition administration. I am bringing Anelle to see him as well. He gave us our baby back and even called to follow up on her progress. Outstanding service and even better staff. HE IS ONE OF A KIND!!

I used mainstreet vets for about 1 year. I moved from my previous vet because this one was closer. The first visit was okay, he tried to convince me that "NRT" is what my pet needed, I was a little skeptical about it so I did my own investigation, this "process" aka hoax is not tailored for animals, it is only used on humans, never tested on pets...I declined any type of nrt to be done on my pet. A few months later, my dog was due for vaccines, I dropped her off and when I picked her up the "Dr." was standing up front, I asked him how my pet did and he did not remember seeing my pet. Now I know there were only 2 dogs that dropped off besides mine, because I inquired at the time of drop off, what time my pet would be ready and the receptionist stated there were only 3 drop offs today so it should not take that long. Since the doctor did not ??remember? his patient from 3 hours ago, I had a feeling that this so called Dr. did not even give my dog an exam with her vaccines. So, I took my dog recorders and took him straight to another vet who informed me my pet had a skin infection and a heart mummer that Dr. Moorehead did not inform me of, probably because he was unaware of these problems since no exam was administered. I know that no exam was preformed because there were no doctor notes in my medical record that I watched the receptionist copy straight from their files. I swear this place is a scam, if you decide to take your chances here, then I recommend that you never drop off because the doctor won??t examine a patient unless then owner is there.

At the age of 3 my dog developed weakness in her hips, and lacked the energy to go on a walk longer then around the block. Over the years we've taken her to multiple vets. We've had x-rays, chiropractic, acupuncture, every test and treatment under the sun and did not receive a diagnosis or a cure. I took my dog to Main Street Vet after reading about Nutrition Response Testing. Through NRT Dr. Moorehead discovered my dog had a fungus and bacteria that had settled in her hips. Dr. Moorehead gave my dog several nutritional supplements to clear out the fungus/bacteria. After 8 weeks of treatment, my dog was feeling great and now has tons of energy and is happy again. Since my dog has done so well with NRT, I decided to start the NRT program for myself. I was having leg and hip pain, and muscle weakness in my legs. Prior to NRT, I spent the last year treating my symptoms with chiropractic, massages, acupuncture and Muscle Activation Thearpy. None of which held long term relief and the pain in my hips and legs contined to get worse. Through NRT Dr. Moorehead discovered the causes of my pain and put me on a supplemental program that supports my body naturally. I know from my experience with conventional medicine that after thousands of dollars worth of testing (x-rays, MRI, etc.) the doctor would have found nothing and prescribed pain medications and ant-inflammatories, no diagnosis just something to mask the pain. However, after 2 weeks of treatment with Dr. Moorehead I am feeling better. I believe in NRT and am so happy I found Dr. Moorehead and Main Street Vet. However, if you do not believe that our bodies are energetic and self healing, then NRT is not for you or you pet. Just keep in mind that once you have spent your life's savings on conventional medicine and still feel lousy, maybe it is time to look into something different. It worked for my dog and is working for me. Everyone that works at Main Street Vet is friendly and it is clear they love animals and think humans are not so bad either. My dog and I are finally feeling good again. Thank you Dr. Moorehead.

My experience today was ok until i went to check out and the lady in charge was very disrespectful to me as a customer. Her smart mouth wasn't appreciated. i like Dr. Morehead but if doesn't get that smart mouth lady together i will be taking my business elsewhere. The way she talked at me is the same way she received my reply. treat others as you want to be treated and if she likes being treated the way she treated me she doesn't need to be in that position. you don't get what you want coming out the gate calling people stupid and then you hear them in the back talking about you.

I have been taking my pug to Dr. Moorehead for almost 8 years. He was having some health issues about 2 years ago, sluggish, not his usual playful self, but Dr. Moorehead got him on the right track with the NRT, Nutrition Response Testing. Dr. Moorehead and his staff have always been very courteous and pleasant during my visits and I think of them as my friends. I would recommend Dr. Moorehead to anyone.

I have very mixed feelings regarding this business--and it is a business. I took my female cat in to be fixed through a spay and neutering program of which they are a voluntary part. The care for my cat was very good. Dr. Moorehead used a procedure that required smaller incisions and allowed for quicker healing. This was much appreciated since she was a very tiny cat. She did well and he seemed gentle enough and kind with her.

The problem came regarding expenses and payment. The program allowed for discount spaying. I understood that certain "extra's" would cost more such as pain medicine, or if she was in heat. The bill was quoted to me over the phone and then an extra amount quoted if she was in heat. They also led me to believe they routinely did surgeries Saturday morning. It turned out this was not the case and they required payment up front the day before. If I did not, I would have been charged $25 for cancelling less than 24 hours. I paid and brought my cat in the next day. I then received a call that she had been in heat and was charged $15 above the price quoted over the phone for that circumstance. Confused, I paid it when I picked her up.

I then had a follow up for a second part of a vaccination plus they wanted to make sure she was healing properly. The shot was a certain amount and again I was told that would be the final bill, but when I arrived I was informed that another $13 would be added for the after surgery check. By the time I had left the bill was twice what I had been told would be due because of continued additions to the after surgery check up. They were very polite in telling me, but the fact of the matter is, they received full payment for all the procedures including the re-imbursement for the spay. This was not in accordance with the program they "accepted". Though my cat received adequate care, I left feeling used, baited and switched. Needless to say, I have chosen to go elsewhere for her and my other cats care. Though she received adequate care and the staff appeared friendly and seemed some what professional, the passive aggressive manner in which I was treated, and I watched others being treated as well, plus the less than transparent manner of charges would preclude me from ever recommending this vet business to anyone.

We have been bringing our two dogs that are like family members to Dr. Moorehead for over two years. The staff is always friendly and we have had nothing but good experiences with the clinic. We would recommend the clinic to others, and have so several times.

This is the most bizarre place I have ever been in my life, the Doctor is a greedy and incompatent! I took my puppy to Mainstreet for vomitting and diarhea I was told after doing alot of crazy testing where he would have a staff member touch my dog and would push her arm down and tell me if her arm went week there was something wrong in the area she was touching that my dog was allergic to his food. He could tell me this just by placing a plastic bag of my pets food on his belly and pushing the girls arm down! ok I was looking like what in the world!!! So he sent me home with alot of bottles of nutritional supplements and a 400.00 bill. The next day my puppy was even worse I was worried so I took my dog to another vet were the did a parvo test and it was positive!!! I called back to Mainstrret to talk to the Doctor only to be told he would call me back. About 5 hours later he called and told me he didnt do the test because my puppy had recieved vaccinations for parvo but he never thought that maybe he needed to test anyways. I was told to come back in 2 weeks for a recheck, well the other vet told me my puppy wouldnt have made it 1 week. So now I have a 600.00 bill at the other vet and my puppy had to stay there for 5 days but if I didnt go my puppy would have died!!! To make a long story short Mainstreet Vets is like buying a car that wont start, USELESS! Can I get my money back? I dont know we will have to let the judge deside that!!!

And we say... Before any test is performed on any patient at MainStreet Veterinarians, we not only communicate with the owner what is being done, but get a written authorization before proceeding. It is true that we live in a society mandated by pharmaceutical companies with millions of pill treating only symptoms. We accept and agree that some holistic/alternative health care is not for everyone. You have got to believe that the body is a wonderful machine capable of healing itself. To that effect ours is an integrated health care facility. We get many clients that are beyond please. Some choose the alternative route while others remain in the path of traditional health care. As with any car, the body is as good as the care we give to it. As far as our effectiveness, it suffices to say that we get written testimonials on a monthly basis. As a matter of fact, a visit to our website will proof how our clients are pleased with the miracles they witness every day here at MainStreet Veterinarians. 14 years of service back our commitment to offer a better life for our furry friends.

I took my "babies" to Doc Moorehead for more than 10 years.While early on, Doc seemed to do such a great job. Once established, that all changed. I believe the Greed-Monster got in.We had a very rare breed dog. When he was at his healthiest, over 300 pounds.When my male began showing signs like boating in his belly with no other symptoms shortly after getting his yearly shots, I called Doc.I paid for a blood test and exam.Doc did the holistic medicine crap. He had me touch my dog, I in turn held the hand of his assistant, Doc checked the assistant and told us our dog had congestive heart failure and to give him 50 pills a day.When the dog was two years old, Doc advised for a blood test for heartworm. We agreed. What would need to be done is: Doc come out to the parking lot, sedate the dog, do a blood test with as few people around as possible. I called the breeder to find the best sedation for the breed. I informed Doc.My male got onto the scale, his butt on the floor weighed 168 without his butt on the scale.Doc did not take into consideration of the butt on the floor, he gave acepromazine. WRONG! Then when he came outside to do the blood test, everyone in the office came. The dog was under sedated, "ace" has the opposite effect. Then he sedated with a different substance. The breeder tells me that should have blown the dog's heart out.Six years later, my dog became bloated.Needles to say, when I needed the "lasix" to bring down the swelling, Doc would not give the lasix in liquid form, would only give in shot form if he gave the shot (2 a day x $100).December 19, 2005 my male doge died in our arms around 12:00 pm.

PROS: None
CONS: Paid for blood test, denied proper diagnostic - death

Our experience Since when a breeder's feedback has more weight than a Dr.? In this case and following the veterinarians oath the best care was given to this animal. After all we have been for 10 years taking care of these pets successfully. However, sometimes we steer away from reality when the Dr. tells you what you so not want to hear. The documents prove we offered the best we could under the circumstances. With more compliance we would be reading something different today.

I have been a client of Mainstreet Veterinarians for at least the last 12 years and am so totally pleased with the care they have given our pets. Dr. Moorehead has helped our older dogs navigate old age with as little difficulty as possible. Our dogs which we have lost over the past several years have gone through some extremely serious illnesses and Mainstreet has allowed them to live a little longer than they probably would have had they been treated elsewhere. They really care about our animals and call to check on them frequently. Their prices are probably average but I really wouldn't know about that as I won't go to any other vet. He specializes in the total animal. By this I mean that he blends traditional medicine with holistic approaches, such as nutritional supplementation and chiropractic care for pets. My husband and I are truly blessed to have such a wonderful clinic to take our pets to for their care. The staff, also, is fantastic from the vet techs to the receptionists to the kennel staff.

The veterinarian and staff at Mainstreet Veterinarians are not only animal lovers, they're incredibly knowledgeable about animal health, and I feel very confident about taking my dog to them. I know that my pet will be treated with kindness and respect, unlike many places that just want the bucks. The doctor takes time with patients and establishes a friendly but firm relationship, so the animal feels reassured. Charges for services are about average, and you won't get ripped off by unusual fees. The parking lot is small and difficult to maneuver, so you might want to schedule appointments during the slowest part of the day (late morning).

These people really know how to treat animals. They were really kind to my friends dog. He needed to get a checkup because he was feeling really bad. They treated him so well that we didn't want to leave. Normally my friends dog never wants to go anywhere. They even gave him some dog treats for behaving so well.

My best friend and I took his ailing 12 year-old chocolate lab to Stone Mountain, quite the hike from Marietta. The reason we went is because the vets at Mainstreet specialize in certain aspects of their field.

We didn't know it, but the chocolate lab in question had cancer and was losing her sight in one eye. Another vet told us we'd have to amputate one of her legs (she broke it--we suspect she has osteoporosis or some degenerative bone disease). Thankfully, the leg was saved and our dog is just fine. The vets here not only did a fantastic job in prescribing pet meds and treatment, but they kept us in good spirits while we waited. I only wish my HUMAN doctor was this cool.

PROS: You won't find better--they're worth the hike
CONS: The snobs won't treat you, because hey...they don't "do" humans

Actually we do! Dr. Moorehead is an Advance Clinical Training Graduate in Nutrition Response Testing. He does treat human patients very succesfully. Call us for an appointment.

This vet is great. It took care my animals with care and sincerity. The prices are reasonable, depening upon the service being rendered. I would say everyone in the office were trained to work and be around animals. I was very impressed with the service.
