Never thought she is incompetent until I lost my 9 yr old very healthy baby cat. We went in for soft stool. She prescribed antibiotic and diet food after a blood work that came normal except showed allergy to something.( she did not know what) . I asked her to run allergy tests and she said there are none that can be done. Ten days later we had problems again and she did another blood test and x-ray. The blood was good again but the x-ray showed a little(and it was little,I saw it)water in the lungs,slightly enlarged heart and liver,a lot of gas in the small and large intestines and inflammation .She prescribed steroids and antibiotic with not running any other tests!!! I am not a doctor,but common sense was telling me that lungs and heart are more important and asked what about them? Or the liver?She insisted we have to treat the intestines first. Can u do mere tests? Can u send us to a specialist?Not at this point-later was her answer.A WEEK LATER MY CAT WAS DEAD!!!
Since, I gave the symptoms to four other Vets with the results from what she saw in Xray and asked what would their treatment approach be and what meds would they prescribe. ALL came with the same : Diuretics for the water, tests for the heart and medication according to what is found ,test for intestines(there could be to different diagnoses with totally different treatment for the intestines). She went backwards and GUESSED instead of checking for sure and that killed my baby.NOW IF THIS IS NOT INCOMPETENCE I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS!!!
PS.I have been taking my cats to Dr.P for 12 years.I liked her kindness and the way she was with my babies. But never had a real health problem with any of them to see for real how incompetent she is. I do not understand why she does not run mere tests. More is better than none always.
So,Pet owners be aware ! Go for knowledge and competence and do not let kindness full you. Unfortunately my baby paid with her life for me to learn this lesson.

DR. P is WONDERFUL. She takes her time and answers every question. You won't feel pressured or rushed here. I have been using this clinic for almost twenty years and I wouldn't change to another. The price list is more than fair, she keeps them affordable. The care my 3 pets received over the years was top of the line. This is a very small practice but the doctor has a very big heart. I hope that she maintains this practice for another 30 years. My dog Scooby loves the Skokie Animal Hospital.

My pets were patients here until my puppy under went the surgery to be fixed. What should have gone smoothly - did not. She was not coming out of the anesthesia and we were not informed of this at the time of my phone call to check up on her. We later learned one of the staff even took her home to care for her all night, which I appreciated. I didn't appreciate the near death experience or the lack of communication between the vet and I. I would not take my pet here for boarding or surgery of any kind.

My dog was taken here after he started bumping into things freqently and the female vet in this practice performed some tests, read the blood work in the wrong order, and misdiagnosed him. After misdiagnosing him, she medicated him for the wrong ailment and sent him into the beginning stages of renal failure. I brought him to another vet who wanted to see the tests that she performed and she refused to send anything other than the diagnosis until I fought with her for a while. My dog almost died because of how poorly she read his test results.
