I have taken my pet to Fair Oaks about 4 or 5 times for regular check ups and to get spayed. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful but some of them have an attitude which they clearly learned from Dr. Holland. Dr. Holland has a harsh, shrill tone of voice that makes you want to cringe and she is very accusatory without coming right out and saying what she means. When my pet continued to have an issue after I tried their suggestions she implied that I was lying and that I hadn't been supervising my pets behavior. Another thing that I don't like about Fair Oaks is the cleanliness. The last visit I had, there were dog nail clippings all over the exam room floor. During that visit I also had to wait over 30 minutes to be put in a room and then an additional 30 minutes for the doctor. I even had to ask the front desk if they had forgotten that I was there. When Dr. Holland came in she did not apologize for my wait time and then started in with her usual rude comments and tone of voice. If you don't mind being talked to in a degrading manner and accussed of not taking care of your pet Fair Oaks is the place for you. I will not be going back.

I love fair oaks veterinary hospital,Dr.Holland is a super dvm, she really knows her stuff the hospital itself is always clean and smells good(which is hard when you have pets in/out of there all day),the staff is always friendly and eager to help you if needed, Dr.Holland has the best prices BY FAR!, and she is always referred first when people I know have called around other hospitals! It is only smart to take your pets (If you love them) to Fair Oaks Veterinary Hospital

I have been going to Fair Oaks for 37 years. Doctor Holland bought the clinic from Dr. Harrison almost 10 years ago and all I can say is I totally trust her with my most precious possession my Norwegain Elkhound Tank. She takes the time

I'm thinking these guys must get one helluva kick back from that flea spray they are pushing on us. We took our cats there and the dr assured us that neither of them had worms. Less than a week later one of them is violently throwing up and it was full of worms!! They were so busy trying to sell us things that they couldn't be bothered with doing a proper fecal exam. From reading the other reviews i feel lucky my cats are even still alive.

Unfortunately my experience here was horrible. The lack of communication resulted in an additional $45 charge on my bill without my permission. 2 days of arguing with Dr. Holland and staff who I found very rude. You cant make up policies as you go along. Either train your staff or visibly post your policies.

Went to Dr. Holland for our baby, Frank, and ended up needing several procedures and treatments for his various ailments. He is 10 years old, so we anticipated this. Nothing she said was surprising to us. We were quoted a fair price for her services, and opted for surgery to remove some masses under Frank's arm and on his lower eyelid. Dr. Holland could have pushed us to have expensive pathology tests done on the masses, but honestly and clearly stated that at his age, it would not have improved the quality of his life, and could be tested at a later date if the masses returned. Our baby ended up having a prolonged reaction to anesthesia and they urged us to allow him to stay overnight at no additional cost, and even entertained my very worried husband's fears by letting me see the area in which he would be sleeping. Dr. Holland has always been firm and honest with me, and since I consider my pet to be a child under my care, and not a tractor that needs repair, I value her experience and expect full honesty, which I have always gotten.

In addition, when she purchases, transports, stores, and administers "chicken baby food" at "2x" the store cost, I don't complain because she's incurring the cost of said purchase/transport/storage/administration for herself. Her staff is incredibly friendly and gentle, and I've never waited (in 4 visits) more than 10 minutes with Frank for services. She does not make me feel less than, as some reviewers have mentioned, because when she speaks to me as a professional, I as a layperson, listen and heed her advice.

If Dr. Holland were a pediatrician, I highly doubt she would receive the negative feedback that some seem so eager to heap on her, most of which is comprised of nothing more than whining about the expense of caring for a family member and being overly sensitive to a doctor who cares enough to tell the truth. I'm sure she sees more than her fair share of animals whose caretakers could really care less. I personally could not handle it.

Finally, I'd like to point out, that as a doctor, regardless of her obvious talents and commitment, she can only fight so hard. From what I understand she is devoted to providing compassionate and thorough care to all animals that come her way, including abandoned or neglected neighborhood animals. However, again, these are not appliances, these are animals...lives. If you've lost a pet while under any vet's care, I hope that you realize that life is very precious and very fragile, thus making Dr. Holland's sometimes harsh dedication to the health of the animals in her care ever so much more vital.

Avoid Fair Oaks if you can! The Vet there nickels and dimes you to death... She told me my kitten needed to start over his distemper boosters, but I called another vet in the area that told me it is not true... I would have shelled out an extra $18 without knowing the facts if I hadn't gotten a second opinion. They are overall higher than everyone else, and they will charge you for every little thing like Chicken Baby Food - and the price they charge is 2x what it costs in the store! She also tries to find reasons to keep you coming in, to milk that cash cow. She doesn't review records well before you come in (we told her about a new cat we got, he was already a patient, and she should have known that before we brought our established cat in!). And she somehow makes you feel "less than" in the way she treats you. So my advice is to STAY AWAY and find someone else who cares and won't charge you for every single thing!

My dog died while he was boarded there , only two days. The dog seemed very healthy when we brought him but he never made it home.
The dog was 11 years old but I found it very strange that 2 days later he was dead.

I met Dr. Holland after my dog ate a 2oz bottle of gorilla glue. Dr. Holland and her staff were able to surgically remove the mass from her stomach. My dog recovered well and the whole thing cost me about half of what the emergency vet wanted to charge.

Since that day in 2003 I have been using her as my vet for my two cats and two dogs with NO complaints.

She is to the point, has a great interaction with each of my pets, and doesn't up-sell or try to get me into gimmicky meds/treatments/procedures.

Her staff does turn over quite a bit, but they are friendly and competent. Her building could use an extreme makeover, but then again we're not being gouged on price to pay for pretty facilities - we're paying reasonably for high quality care.

People who are complaining must not have seen Dr. Holland. She is fantastic. My dog loves her and most of her staff. The biggest drawback I have there is that the staff keeps changing. I don't think that selling is what the counter staff does, they seem to be reminding me that Frontline and Heartguard are important and available there. She has done 2 surgeries on my dog, and she has recovered fully from both. Dr. Holland is very open to my limitations as a parent and has even given me her home number for questions that could arise after hours.

I have been using her since she took over from Dr. Harrison which was back in the 1990's.

Dr. Holland has been our German Shepherd's vet since she was a puppy. The building is older and I know thee has been some staff changes but the most important thing is that Dr. Holland treats my dog like she was her own pet. She is clam and great with all my animals and really cares for each of my pets. Her advice is always good even if it is not what you want to hear. I am shocked about these other reviews but I recommended Dr. Holland all the time, she has been wonderful for the past 5 years!

I too like many folks around here I have been giving this vet a lot of business in the past but NO MORE!I have had appointments scheduled many times only to sit in their depressing waiting rooms for more than 3 hours. No one came in to check on us until I went to the desk and complained. Treated even ruder when Ms. Holland came in to see us she was upset because I was upset and was rude, rude, rude to me. If I can't enjoy the experience of taking my pets to the vet then I know my animals don't get a good vibe when they are there either. Ms. Holland should go into the collections business where I'm sure she would excel!

Additionally, money, money, money is all they seem to really care about there. Everyone has a well rehersed sale pitch and is really disgusting.

I go out of my way to tell everyone I know that has pets NEVER to go there.

We have used the Fair Oaks Veterinary Clinic since 1980. The former owners, Dr. Harrison, and his staff were great. They were clean and very professional. The new owners have presented challenges, particularly in the customer relations category.

Boarding has been especially challenging in the last few years. This summer, I boarded our dog for a week and had them give him his annual checkup and shots. The day before I took him in, he was bathed and groomed. He looked so good that before we left him, I took some closeup pictures of him.

When we picked him up he was a mess. The vet said he was a mess when we brought him in, which I knew wasn't true. She implied that I was not a good pet owner and was very rude during our entire conversation. I said nothing in response but when I got home I went shopping for a new vet after 28 years. The present owners are very pushy with selling additional products and services every time we take our dog there and, in my opinion, it seems that loading pet owners up with guilt is a way for them to get more money. The pills they billed me for on this visit were twice the price that the local pharmacies were charging. It is always a stressful time when we go to pick up our pet and it was never that way with the former owners. They were polite, professional and I would leave there with my dog looking good and my patience intact.

I purchased an 8 week old kitten and have taken her to this vet several times over the last 4 months for shots and to be spayed. The staff there is very nice although Dr. Holland is kind of abrasive and not very friendly. However, you can tell that she and her staff love animals. When my kitten was there overnight for her spay surgery the office let me know that I could call as many times that I would like to check on her. My experience has been good overall...although I do wish that Dr. Holland were as nice to people as she is to the pets...

I have been taking my animals there (all of them) for years. But now am looking for someone else. I too like most of the other people felt they cared more about SELLING me extras then taking did caring for my pets needs. I felt like I had just been to a car dealership and a sales person had just gotten done with me. I will not return.

I??m a bit shocked reading these other reviews.

In Sept 07, I had to put my 16 yr old Yorkie down. I had called my usual vet who made me feel horrible about the already hard decision. My aunt suggested calling her vet, Dr. Holland at Fair Oaks. They took him in without asking any questions and made me feel as comfortable as possible.

In Oct of 07, I was miserable without a pet and adopted two ??free? dogs. When it came time to get them spayed that Dec, I went back to Dr. Holland at Fair Oaks. Prior to bringing my dogs in, I explained that they had been strays and I had only had them for about two months. I also explained that all their behavior pointed to them having been abused prior to becoming mine.

The staff members were great working with my two scared to death lab mixes. After individual work ups and happy shots, they were off for surgery. Dr. Holland made me feel very comfortable leaving my babies with them.

In Jan 08, one of my dogs was having problems that later turned out to be food allergies but I was in and out of the vets office every two weeks for a month and a half. The staff members understood when I brought both dogs in even though only one had a problem/appointment (they have sever separation anxiety from each other).

When I arrived for our first appointment in Jan, it was the first time the dogs had been back there since surgery and they eagerly went inside ?? I usually have to drag them places.

The things I like about this office is that the staff are always friendly and know me and my dogs by name (that could just be from seeing us so much). I like that their products (flee and heartworm) are less than or comparable to local stores and domestic internet sales. I hate having to shell out a small fortune for my dogs special food but that is a small sacrifice and her food is less through them than other places I??ve looked.

My only complaint, which is quite minor, is that when I scheduled their spay appointment, I specifically asked if they had to be kept over night. I was told no, they could go home that evening. I didn??t find out they would be staying until they were already taken back into the holding area. Like I said, a very minor problem and it was better for the dogs anyway.

My dogs love to go to the vet and that makes me comfortable and happy.

I??m a bit shocked reading these other reviews.

In Sept 07, I had to put my 16 yr old Yorkie down. I had called my usual vet who made me feel horrible about the already hard decision. My aunt suggested calling her vet, Dr. Holland at Fair Oaks. They took him in without asking any questions and made me feel as comfortable as possible.

In Oct of 07, I was miserable without a pet and adopted two ??free? dogs. When it came time to get them spayed that Dec, I went back to Dr. Holland at Fair Oaks. Prior to bringing my dogs in, I explained that they had been strays and I had only had them for about two months. I also explained that all their behavior pointed to them having been abused prior to becoming mine.

The staff members were great working with my two scared to death lab mixes. After individual work ups and happy shots, they were off for surgery. Dr. Holland made me feel very comfortable leaving my babies with them.

In Jan 08, one of my dogs was having problems that later turned out to be food allergies but I was in and out of the vets office every two weeks for a month and a half. The staff members understood when I brought both dogs in even though only one had a problem/appointment (they have sever separation anxiety from each other).

When I arrived for our first appointment in Jan, it was the first time the dogs had been back there since surgery and they eagerly went inside ?? I usually have to drag them places.

The things I like about this office is that the staff are always friendly and know me and my dogs by name (that could just be from seeing us so much). I like that their products (flee and heartworm) are less than or comparable to local stores and domestic internet sales. I hate having to shell out a small fortune for my dogs special food but that is a small sacrifice and her food is less through them than other places I??ve looked.

My only complaint, which is quite minor, is that when I scheduled their spay appointment, I specifically asked if they had to be kept over night. I was told no, they could go home that evening. I didn??t find out they would be staying until they were already taken back into the holding area. Like I said, a very minor problem and it was better for the dogs anyway.

My dogs love to go to the vet and that makes me comfortable and happy.

Our dog became very sick while we boarded the dog there.
The dog was only there for two days and when we came to pick him up we were told by Dr. Holland that she recommended we put the dog to sleep. Terrible experience, I would never go back.
We ended up having to put the dog down.

We started taking our dog to Dr.Holland a couple of years ago. We initially went for her surgery that our original vet didnt perform at the time. In between time our vet closed and she was the next office that was familiar with Diamond. Dr. Holland is an expert in upselling products and recommended test but really never diagnosed Diamond. She blurts out statements in front of whomever "THEY HAVE NO MONEY!!!!" They're not going to purchase the Heartguard!!! What about the Advantix??!! We went to her twice in one month and she even took blood. Never a diagnosis or a kind or sensitive word. We felt as if we were bothering her. Today we took Diamond to another vet and he took one look at her and diagnosed her with LIVER FAILURE. He advised us that she was suffering and today she was put to rest. I hate that I ever took her to that UNPROFESSIONAL, INSENSITIVE doctor. She is a discace to other vets.

We recently just saved our dogs from neglecting owners. In the second week of having him, we took him to Fair Oaks to get a check up and his shots, so he could eventually be groomed. When Dr. Holland walked in she made rude comments about the condition of our dog, even though she was just told that we basically rescued him. The way she treated us was very unpleasant and rude. Whenever we asked her any questions, she would give us sassy remarks, not even answering the question asked. The rest of her staff was nice. The groomer, was very friendly as well, which was why we went back to Fair Oaks for the grooming. When we got our dog back he was not the same. He walked sideways and hid under the bed for 2 days. We took him to another vet to see what was wrong with him and the vet pointed out that he had cuts everywhere on his body including around his eyes. We ended up paying $200 to fix the problems that THEY caused for a $50 grooming. I will NEVER go back to Fair Oaks again.

Dr. Holland was extremely rude when I visited. She was very pushy with selling products. Although her assistant advised her that there was no evidence of fleas on my pet (while in front of me) , she still left the room and returned with a can of flea treatment for to purchase any way! Although I advised her that I rescued my new pet just two weeks prior, she practically accused ME of not feeding him. I reminded her that the pet had actually grown over the past few weeks, which I advised her of when I walked in. While leaving we ran into a couple who advised us that Dr. Holland nearly killed their pet by trying to a perfom a surgery in which she was obviously not capable of performing.

Dr. Holland is fabulous! She's great to her patients and their owners. Plus, the clinic doesn't try to charge you an arm and a leg for veterinary services. My dogs love her and she really cares about each and every animal that comes through her door.
