I took my cat, Evy, to Dr. Turbeville today. I must say he is a great doctor and a great sense of humor. I say he has years of experience and look forward to taking my cat along with my other pets to him. The great thing about it is the price. The receptionist very kind and courteous.

Customer for life. I am going to recommend all my relatives and friends to him.

PS: Someone wrote earlier about the business smelling like strong urine. The day I went there was no smell; only of dogs and cats :) The place was very clean.

I have seen him perform surgery on animal that did not completely went to sleep. He DID give the dog two shots but for some reason the dog did not go to sleep In the Dr-s defense I will say he did it to keep from killing the animal with toooo much anesthetic but the fact is dr Turberville DOES operate on animals that are not fully asleep

When my lab was hit by a car in 2007 and went into shock, I panicked and didn't know who to take him to.
My mother suggested Dr Turbeville since he had helped us previously with other pets. We called ahead and the receptionist was ready to assist us, met us at the car and helped us carry him inside. At eighty pounds, it took three of us.
Dr Turbeville treated him for shock, gave an x-ray, gave us antibiotics to assist his healing process, and told us what over-the-counter products were safe to treat his pain rather than prescribing something expensive.
His expenses were reasonable, he was very calm and knowledgeable, and he was extremely kind and respectful.
I can only imagine how I was acting (you know, my baby was not responding to stimuli, I'm sure I was hysterical) but he was very helpful in spite of this. I owe him everything.

It's not about the pet but the pet owner. Doc Turbeville is a blue collar animal clinic. My wife and I have a tough little kitty that we retrieved from the woods as a baby. "Baby Kitty" goes to Doc Turbeville. Service and the care is great.

We take our 22 year-old tom cat, Detroit, to a more upscale clinic down the road. Detroit receives the very best of care and gets lots of attention from the great staff.

For what it's worth, both Baby Kitty and Detroit receive better health care than you probably get from your personal physician.

We decided to go to Dr. Tubberville to get our 2yr old black lab neutered. A friend had recommended him and after reading mainly positive reviews online, we called and made an appointment. It blows my mind that none of the reviews online mentioned how FILTHY the clinic is. As soon as you walk in the door there is an extremely strong stench of urine. I immediately had an uneasy feeling. I was also surprised to find they only accept cash or check, this is not a deal breaker but definitely information to know beforehand. For a split second we thought about just going somewhere else, but with the amazing price, friend's personal experience and the reviews online we figured everyone must know something that we don??t. We took our dog back into where they keep the dogs before their operation. The best way I can describe it is large chicken coops with newspapers on the floor and again the OVERWHELMING stench of urine. We decided to still go through with the operation. We were told to pick him up later that day anywhere from 3-5. We got there 5 minutes after 3 and went to the back where the chicken coops are. OUR DOG WAS NOT THERE. One of the assistants seemed alarmed, she asked another lady where the dog was and she answered outside in a dog run. The dogs are not supposed to be outside after surgery because they are not as "closely monitored" and can get to their stitches. We saw our dog, took him to the front and paid the assistant. I was extremely worried and asked a good bit of questions more than likely "duh" questions but Sherry was extremely patient with me and answered all of them, even told me to feel free to call if I had any concerns. We took him home and he threw up seven times that evening, I called to see if this was typical and was told that the anesthesia medicine can upset dogs stomachs. Sherry even gave me her personal cell number and told me to call if I needed ANYTHING, ANYTIME. That meant the world to me. They do not provide you with an E collar, which we knew, so we purchased one to ensure our dog did not get to his stitches. Somehow he managed to pull one out any way. After monitoring the wound for a day, I first called back to the clinic on 70th and was told there was nothing they could do and to just keep a close eye on it. We decided to take him to another vet to get checked out and to get a second opinion. Turns out he was developing an infection. Now I do not completely blame his infection on the clinic, after all he did tear a stitch out, but having a sanitary environment goes a LONG way. I do feel it did nothing to help ward off an infection, being in a place like that. This second clinic gave us antibiotics, anti inflammatory medication and a much larger E collar (obviously something could and needed to be done!!). Slowly but surely we saw improvements. Then exactly a week after his operation he started to develop a hacking cough and began to cough up a clear mucus. The text book symptoms of kennel cough!! This was the only place he had been in close quarters with unknown dogs and again it was a pig sty. Dr. Tubberville seemed nice enough, knowledgeable, but slightly distant. Sherry was a godsend and is the only reason my rating actually contains a star. I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone. The price is amazing, but we have now paid way over the cost of getting him neutered somewhere else that would have been much safer. Hind sight is ALWAYS 20/20. I regret not trusting my gut instinct and seeing my dog going through this is punishment enough. I truly hope that this review makes at least one person think twice and look into going somewhere else. The cheap price is not worth all this pain and frustration and now higher cost than if we just would have paid more upfront and had the procedure done in a clean safe environment.

He's really cheap but the only problem is that he's rude. I just got a new puppy that already has all her shots except for one and when I told him that he got really rude and said "if that's all you THINK she needs then ok then" really? Then kept mumbling words under neath his breathe. Again he's really cheap and seems like he knows what he's doing, but he really needs to work on some social skills.

He is a great vet and his assistant is very nice and helpful. I have been hesitant to take my dog to the vet because she is old and I don't want a bunch of blood work, teeth cleaning, etc. I want her healthy and comfortable for the remainder of her life. I can get the care I need at this clinic without a hefty bill and tons of unnecessary work done.

My family has been using Dr. Turbeville for several years for our two dogs and cat. He is an excellent vet. He knows his stuff and is very affordable and is highly recommended for basic medical needs. However, he does not have the fancier medical equipment like other animal clinics (which trust me, you end up paying for). So if your pet has a very serious illness (I'm looking at you, Suzanne R.), I would recommend taking them somewhere that is better equipped to handle it.

Dr.Turbeville is not at all a good vet. I took my collie to him because my dog was vomiting and not eating. I asked if he would do blood work and was told it wasn't neccesary. He gave my dog a shot of antibiotic and another shot to stimulate him to eat and my dog still wasn't eating. he told me to give him mineral oil and stilll my dog wasn't eating then he told me to bring my dog in to stay with him for 2 days for observation.I finally demanded him to run blood work and xrays and my dog has pancreatitis. Dr. turbeville called me on the phone to tell me and then he told me he didn't know how to treat pancreatitis.he also told me he wasn't going to charge me for the bloodwork or xray. I then went to his office to get my dog to take him to another vet when I got there I confronted him and told him he should refund the 45.00 I payed for the 2 shots he gave my dog that would not have helped my dogs pancreatitis he got angry and told his assistand give me the 45.00 to get rid of me.I took my dog straight to another vet with the bloodwork showing he had pancreatitis.he is now on the right path to getting well.my dog could have died if I hadn't demaned Dr turbeville to run bloodwork. That should have been the first thing he should have done.He is a lousy Doctor and I hope people here take heed to what happened to me.he may be cheap but is it worth losing your animal? I am lodging a complaint against him. I wonder how many animals have died because of his mis diagnosis.my hope is that he loses his liscence to practice for what he did to my dog.He also will not release my dogs medical record to me or my new vetrinarian which he has no legal right to do.

The receptionist I found somewhat helpful. The vet can be really good but he has a different side to him. Only take your pet up there when he is not alone. Another words, when he gets busy and overwhelmed he tends to take it out on the animals.

Dr. Turberville is an outstanding Vet! There were a few times where he easily could have made money off of me, but instead explained what I needed to do to care for my animals. You can't beat his prices, but more so his service. He sincerely cares about animals & it shows. He is also great with making children laugh & sometimes even getting them involved with the care. My animals normally don't take well to Vet's but they love Dr. Turberville & are very calm when around him ~ really good sign! I told my parents about him & they wouldn't think twice about taking their pets to anyone else. I highly, highly, highly... recommend Dr. Turberville & his staff!!

Since I do not have children my animals are my babies. I only give them the best and the best is what you will get at this animal clinic. They are very helpful, polite, and honest...Not that typical vet who charges you for all sorts of things that weren't necessary to begin with. And we can't forget Great Great prices....Can't be beat!!!

We have been using Dr. Tuberville for several years now. He has always been helpful and caring and definitely has the most reasonable prices around. I had a puppy with Parvo but did not have the money to take him in at the time. Dr. T told me what to do and it worked! It was amazing but the dog is now 2 years old and happy and healthy.
Try this clinic and you will see, he is the best but doesn't try to get rich off every client like most vets in town.

Since finding Dr Turbeville,Ive started taking all my cats to be declawed there. He does a wonderful job and leaves no apparant post surgery trauma that Ive seen other vets do. His prices are also probably the best in town. However, he has been practicing veternary medicine for a Very long time and may not have the cutting edge technology some vets do. He still operates on a cash only basis,..no credit card machines. Also the place does smell of urine, so that ruined a perfect score.

He really cares about the animals and the owners. Almost everyone we know goes to this clinic for their animals. He is wonderful. We have a puppy that had parvo and he nursed him back to health for us. They send reminder cards when it's 'vet time' so you don't have to remember on your own.
