Cr. Chris and his staff have to be the most caring veternary hospital I have ever been to. I have had pets all my life and this is the first vet that my pets have been to where they actually were excited to walk up the steps. I have never felt rushed in the office. Dr. Chris and staff spend all the time needed, and more, with you explaining everything and answering questions. When I call with a question or concern, they know my pet as soon as they hear my voice on the phone. Dr. Chris and his staff are angels in my book. I will never go to another vet, as he is the best.
Dr. Chris and staff exhibit such compassion for God's creatures. When my golden retriever got extremely sick last year and I had to send her to Heaven, Dr. Chris and staff were as upset as I was but helped me through one of the most difficult times. Now I have a new puppy, Charley who is a Collie, and he loves Dr. Chris as much as my golden retriever did.
I highly recommend Churchman Animal hospital to anyone - you will be so happy you went there.
For over a decade, I have been a devoted client of Dr. Chris and his team at Churchman Animal Hospital. With a dog that frequently find herself with the oddest sicknesses and a house cat that has been in perfect health?.we have needed them for just about every service. We lean on Dr. Chris for advice on many things knowing he truly cares for our animals, looks at all options for treatment, and consistently offers preventative suggestions. Dr. Chris and the team always goes above and beyond the call of duty?.for all the reasons above and more, I would never consider another vet and forever grateful for the care we receive.
The staff are so friendly and always have time to listen. Dr. Chris (and staff) does a great job explaining things to me. My cat has severe anxiety issues when going to the hospital and everyone is very patient with her. Dr. Chris has done a wonderful job stabilizing her complex medical issues. They are the best!!!!
Where do I begin? My husband and I have been loyal clients at Churchman Animal Hospital for over 16 years. We lived in Beech Grove at the time, so it was convenient. We have since moved but we make the drive for the excellent care and compassion shown by the entire staff.
We just lost our almost 17 year old dachshund in May. Dr. Chris and his team couldn't have been kinder to us knowing that WE were struggling more than our sweet girl, Rose-Marie.
Dr. Chris saved Rose-Marie's life twice in her 17 years. He diagnosed her with a rare acute neurological ailment quickly and got us our referral to Purdue instantly where she made a full recovery. Approximately 6 years ago, Rose-Marie suffered a back injury, as most dachshunds do in their lifetime. Dr. Chris diagnosed the problem quickly again and got us our referral to a neurosurgeon. During both of these medical emergencies, our sweet Rose-Marie became extremely aggressive with Dr. Chris and his staff. They handled the situation professionally and with compassion as they knew this was not her natural demeanor.
The best part of being a client at Churchman Animal Hospital is that the entire staff welcomes your pets in as family!
Never left there unhappy or without a full education of what our next steps were with meds, care, etc.
You should go - your pets will thank you!
When my Great Dane Blue found me back in 1998 as a stray, I decided I needed to find a good veterinarian that could provide me with quality care. I looked at vets around the area and decided to check out Churchman Animal Hospital owned by Dr. Chris Dristas. It is 2012 now and Dr. Chris is still the vet I choose for my pets. He is a GREAT veterinarian. He is knowledgeable and compassionate and stays current on the newest procedures. He can be frank but professional when discussing what is best for your pet and always, always puts the pet first. The girls on staff at Churchman Animal Hospital are the best! They are friendly and very competent and make you and your pets feel at ease. Churchman Animal Hospital will always be my number one choice.
Dr. Chris and his Staff are a wonderful group of people.We have been taking our dogs there for 15yrs. Would not take them to any other vet. In fact we had takin our oldest dog to a vet hospital and they wanted to put him down said he wasn't going to make it. My husband said know give me my dog back I am taking him home. Went home and called Dr. Chris and he has lived for 15 yrs and is still a strong dog. Would recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Chris and his staff are truely wonderful. I have been going to Churchman for almost 10 years, and will not consider going anywhere else. Dr. Chris and the girls show each animal client love and respect. They give enough time to each person and their beloved animal, answering all questions and easing anxieties and worries. The health of my two doggie babies is extremely important to me, and I would do anything for them. I know Dr. Chris has that same mindset for each of his clients. I do not live in the Beech Grove area, and there are closer vets to me. But, without question, I drive to Churchman Animal Hospital for my babies. It is totally worth it!!!
Our pets are our "babies" & we want the best for them. We place their health wellness & care totally in the hands of Dr. Chris at Churchman Animal Hospital & have for 20 plus years.
Dr. Chris's knowledge & experience reassures us that our four legged family members are in the best care possible.
When you enter the clinic the girls & Dr. Chris are professional yet friendly making you feel welcomed. The personal attention given to each pet is what convienced us years ago that Dr. Chris is who we wanted to over see their health care needs. It doesn't manner if your pet is a cute baby or a very old aging pet. They are all treated with love, compassion & respect.
One of our girls had to have a tumor removed a couple of weeks ago & Dr. Chris himself called to explain all results & findings. He shares his wealth of knowledge with you & provides options as well. It's that personal thoroughness (not a mass assembly line production) provided that has us as life long clients.
Thank you Dr. Chris & girls for always being there for us!
The best ever, most caring vet i have ever known. The entire staff
is just wonderful. They care for my dog like he was one of their
own. I had two dogs that had to have major surgery at Churchman
Animal Hospital. Not only did they receive excellent care, the
price was very fair. I would recommend Dr. Chris and the girls
in the office to anyone who wants excellent care for their animals.
I have been entrusting the care of my "best friends" to Dr. Chris and his wonderful staff for over 15 years and I am so thankful for their caring and compassion. I wouldn't think of going anyplace else for my pet care needs. Dr. Chris always takes the time to explain everything and answer my questions. He is a wonderful person and Vet and has a great sense of humor! The staff is very friendly and helpful as well.
I have been taking my four-legged family members to Churchman Animal Hospital for 15 years and I would not go anywhere else. I always have to tell the story of when my dog had died and I got a new puppy. Dr. Chris held her up and told her she wasn??t his replacement she was his little sister. That??s exactly what I needed at that moment. Dr. Chris and his staff are not only caring and compassionate but also professional and respectful. They understand the difficult decisions pet-owners have to make whether it be choosing healthcare or having to give that ??final treatment.? They understand the financial issues we may be facing and are open to using both traditional and alternative medications and treatments. They are always able to fit a pet in an emergency and provide referrals if a test or treatment cannot be offered there. I would not hesitate to offer my recommendations to Dr. Chris and all the staff at Churchman Animal Hospital.
Dr. Chris and his staff have been our loyal vet for the past 25+ years. They always take the time to answer any questions we have and explain in detail any condition our cats or dog may have. With 4 cats and 1 dog we spend a lot of time there and I wouldn't want anyone else to treat our beloved pets.
I have two dogs that I love so dearly they probably do not realize they are dogs. Dr. Chris and his staff pretty much prefer I call and ask questions before coming in. The realize I am the airplane mom. Dr. Chris and his staff usually say things like....you can come in if you would like however it is probably ...(what they think) they are usually right in this case it saves me the price of the office visit :). I am currently dealing with a dog who has a severe case of separation anxiety. Here is why I will ALWAYS go back to Dr. Chris and his staff. 1. I called for a quote on the meds. they were kind of high so I looked them up online, I called back to ask if it would be ok to get them off line. Dr Chris himself called me back and spent 20 minutes on the phone with me explaining why I should not buy them online. He also shared other ways of treating this (which none work the dog is nuts) he had his staff look into several ways to cut cost for this. 2. Dr Chris is blunt. period. He has told me several times bad behavior could be solved if I personally changed. They are honest, forward, reasonable people and this is not a joke looking for a vet? want a personal reference? Feel free to email me "firstname.lastname@example.org" and I will tell you!
I have two crazy dogs and have taken them to many Vets before, and while they always tolerate them, you can tell my dogs get on their nerves.
Not the case at Churchman AH. No joke, the BEST service and treatment of my dogs I've ever received since being a pet owner.
The prices were a little higher than most I've dealt with before but nothing too bad. I would gladly pay a little bit more for this type of service.
Other animal hospitals should send their employees to Churchman so they can see how an animal hospital SHOULD be run.
I was very impressed.
I am comforted by going to Churchman A.H. when my dogs need medical care and routine visits because Dr. Christopher Dristas is very caring and well educated about their health. He answers all my questions and helps me feel better because I'm like a worried mother when it comes to my dogs. I've adopted three dogs and have continued to take them to Dr. Dristas for all their health needs. Their staff treats you and the dogs like family .I've always been very happy with their services.
I took my puppy to this hospital when my puppy was sick. This clinic is well staffed and has knowledgeable doctors. The staffs are very helpful and friendly. The facility is also clean. I was very much impressed by their services. You no need to spend much time in waiting. I am very much satisfied. Food for the pets are also available. Their price is also reasonable and when compared to other hospitals
You will love bringing your little furry friend to Churchman Animal Hospital. They are so animal friendly here. They treat your friend like they're human.
Parking is store front.
The hospital is actually a house turned vet clinic.
They have high end pet food available.
They send out little reminder cards addressed to your pets...so cute.
Their services are reasonably priced & they stick to their schedule, so there's low wait time.
Kind, considerate, professional that's Dr.Chris! My family has been taking our pets to Dr.Chris for over 10 years, most recently he helped us through a very difficult time by coming to the house to tend to our old dog Jake, who had collapsed in the bathroom. I would recommend he and his staff to everyone seeking kind, loving care.DML
