I was very surprised to see a negative comment about this practice. I frankly have a difficult time believing it as it is so vastly different than anything I have experienced at Pharr Road. I have had dogs all of my life and I have never found a practice where every single person is so dedicated to the overall well being of the animals under their care. The staff is very friendly, helpful and extremely competent. They truly care about the animals but they also truly care about the owners as well and make a point of making sure that owners who have to face difficult decisions are given the time they need to make informed decisions. It is not unusual for the doctors to call and follow up to see how the animals - as well as their humans - are doing. The doctors are absolutely top notch and cutting edge. I looked for a very long time to find a Vet as good as Dr. Winokur and he has worked wonders for my Rottweiler who has had multiple leg issues. Largely because of him, she is able to run pain free and does not have to take medications that could have negative side effects down the road. Not only does he take the time to listen and ask questions about what is going on with your pet, he also takes the time to make sure that you understand what is going on and why he is pursuing a particular line of treatment. It is not unusual for people who want to learn more about the illness or treatment for their pet to walk out of their appointments with a list of suggested books to read or articles they have printed out for you. It is clearly a partnership between doctor and owner. He looks at the whole animal, not just the symptom that you mention, to make sure that he isn't missing anything underlying or hard to detect. He is very thorough. I also do a lot of fostering and have had several of the other doctors there do check ups and health certificates for my fosters and each doctor has the same level of compassion and competence as I have seen in Dr. Winokur. I had one case where I was fostering a critically ill puppy and they made sure that I knew that I could bring him in at a moments notice if I had to, which I did several times. I didn't even have to wait - they wisked me right in to see a doctor. The other thing that makes this practice stand out from the others is the variety of treatment options they bring to the table, from traditional western, to eastern, to accupuncture and much more in between. They are well connected with the best places to go for physical rehab and surgery that is beyond what they can do there and have excellent relationships with those doctors and therapists. The doctors and staff at Pharr Road are truly dedicated and they provide the best care you can possibly want for your beloved pet. Your pet will never get "routine" treatment at Pharr Road.

I had to find a clinic that performed a paricular type of surgery on my chow mix baby. Dr. Duffy and co-workers perforned the necessary surgery and made me feel so much better about the tricky procedure. I strongly recommend the group to others.

We have been taking our dogs to Pharr Road Animal Hospital since we moved to Atlanta in 1980. At that time there were only two veterinarians (Dr. Petty and Dr. Tucker). We fell in love with the doctors and the office staff and knew we had found the right doctors to trust with our pets' health care. Thirty years later we continue to be impressed with the quality of care our four-legged children receive from Pharr Road Animal Hospital. They have nursed our dogs through serious illnesses and have done so in a caring manner that made us feel that they loved our pets as much as we do. \r
\r
The combined expertise and experience of the doctors in this practice guarantee that your pet's problems receive excellent diagnosis and treatment. We are particularly impressed with the fact that they keep up to date with the latest treatment alternatives (including acupuncture). \r
\r
The front office staff, the techs and the doctors, without exception, have always treated us and our pets with the utmost respect. Thirty years on we continue to have a love affair with Pharr Road Animal Hospital.\r

We love Pharr Rd Animal Hospital. We have had 3 dachshunds and have been very pleased with our experience at Pharr Rd. with each of them. Dr. Bosworth is our normal doctor, and she is a dachshund expert. She is amazing. But, even when we've had to go to another doctor when Dr. B isnt available, we have been very pleased. Everyone is so nice.

Exceptional Professional Care and Service\r

It is clear to me that one person has issues with this great practice and is abusing the internet with multiple negative ratings under different registrations. Anyone can have a bad experience. It doesnt mean that this is a bad place. \r

My Corgi was limping very badly and another veterinarian had already suggested expensive ACL surgery. Dr. Winnokur and Dr. Nichols both examined my dog, studied x-rays, administered acupuncture and gave me a sound plan to rehabilitate my dog. We used minimal medication and no surgery. It was been almost 2 months and he is not limping at all. Dr. Winnokur called me to check in twice. I have always found the staff to not only courteous but very professional as well. I love that they use not only sound traditional methods, but also are up on newer, less invasive, natural methods as well There are several vets on staff and I would trust any of them with my pets. Although they may not be cheap, I felt I got great value for time and money spent there.

I have been taking my dog and cat to Pharr Rd. Animal Hosp. and seeing Dr. Petty for 9 years. He has consistently provided both of my pets with superb care. I have only the highest regard and respect for him and his staff.

The Vets at this clinic do not care about your pets. They only care about getting your money. The office staff are also obnoxious. They make pejorative comments about the customer and pet, even the office manager has is an unkind. The vets never return phone calls, even when promised! They wanted to order costly and invasive tests without a plausible reason to warrant these procedures. I have seen both the owners of the clinic, and they are awful vets. I would not recommend this place to anyone. They don't care about animals, only money

Pros: Nada

Cons: Lack of Care for animals, Overly Priced, Horrible Service

.

The office staff is unkind and patronizing to your face. When you ask to obtain your pet's test results, the technicians will read over the results, and notify you that only the veterinarians can provide the results. However, the veterinarians will NEVER come to the phone, they will refrain from returning phone calls, and will NOT see you even if you go to their office. I had to tell them that I will file a complaint with the BBB in order for them to get the doctor to give me the results. Furthermore, they NEGLECT to apologize for their errors and rudeness. Also, they charge significantly more than other clinics. They don't seem to care about the animals in which they are allegedly treating. I will NEVER go back to this clinic. They are awful!

The last few times i have been here, the rooms had pet hair from the previous pets I also feel like the doctors are distracted and not concerned about my cat when I am paying premium prices, I expect premium service. I'm going elsewhere next time.

He was originally recommeded to us by a top Atlanta nuerosurgeon who took his pets there when we had a 16 week old Lhasa Apso & currently has been seeing Dr. Petty for 11 years on a very regular basis. If a diagnosis requires an invasive procedure, we always get a 2nd opinion & Dr. Petty's diagnosis has always been correct....he is a great doctor who loves animals, is caring & can diagnosis. He is good on preventative care, explains a diagnoisis and the cause as well as options for a particular procedure. I have recommended him to friends and will continue to do so..great vet, great staff and great facility!

I will never take my dog back here. I took my dog to this vet b/c she seemed to have a bladder infection. The vet took xrays, urine tests, etc and came back to me, after I spent $300, with absolutely no helpful news. He suggested I take my pet to a specialist which could've cost another $800. He then suggested that my dog ""might have bladder cancer"". Of course after hearing that, I was so sad and very upset. I cried all day and spoke to my husband. My husband called the vet back and asked to re-test our dog. He did... and then found out it was a simple bladder infection!! First of all, I am upset that he even suggested my dog had cancer without knowing for sure and Secondly, I feel like they ripped me off! I will never recommend this place.

I've taken my dogs & cat to Pharr Road for 5 years. They are amazing in both critical and preventative care situations.
They take the time to know the animals & educate owners.
I've moved out of the neighborhood but will drive 20 minutes each way, past several other vets, to have Pharr Road take care of my pets!

It was so great when I chose this as the place to take my dog when he was having problems with his breathing. They gave me some medicine to give him and he was fixed in no time at all. They treated my dog and I very well and I would go back anytime.
