I am convinced that the good reviews must be from staff members of Sheldon Vet, or friends of Dr. Gorman, because she is a horrible veterinarian! My dog is dead today and I believe with all of my heart that her lack of skills and compassion played a significant role in his death. Not only did she prescribe him medication that was not recommended for dogs his age, she admitted that she knew the medicine had bad side affects, but they were rare. Who cares if it's rare?? If it can happen, then for crying out loud, don't prescribe it without telling the pet owner the possibilities. I even researched the meds before giving it to my dog, but found nothing until after he had an adverse affect from them. Dr. Gorman should lose her license to practice.

I love Dr Gorman and so do our pets! I had such a hard time finding a vet after we left New York, that understood that my pets were my children. I found Carla to be very friendly and warm and both my dogs and cats love her. I only wish

I want to strongly urge you to not take your animals here.

I went to see Dr. Gorman on a Saturday. My cat needed her anal glands expressed and Dr.Gorman suggested that they use gas anesthesia to have her asleep during the procedure. My cat has had gas anethesia before and has handled it with no problems.

Well, when my cat woke up she was EXTREMELY sick. She was shaking and could not walk and was very lethergic. They told me that she would be fine and sent me on my way. My cat was NOT fine. In fact, she started vomitting. Over and over again.

When I called Dr. Gorman's office, no one was there as it was Saturday. Turns out this cold-hearted b*tch doesn't feel the need to list an emergency number in case she poisons an animal. Her voicemail did direct me to an a vet ER that was nearby. I took my cat here and they wanted to keep her overnight. Except they said I had to pay $1,800 dollars UP FRONT for them to do this "or she may die". I called a vet I used to go to and she helped me nurse my cat back to health. It turns out my cat was hypothermic, a reaction to an overdose of the anesthesia. My other vet's help is the ONLY reason I believe my cat is still alive.

When I reached Dr.Gorman on Monday, she took absolutely NO responsibility. She said it was my fault because I didn't ask for a blood test before having the gas anethesia done. I am not in the animal care field and could not have known to ask for this. I asked if this is what she would say if my cat had died, she said yes. She said that my cat is probably severely ill to have a reaction like this, yet when I took her to another vet...she was pronouced COMPLETELY HEALTHY.

Dr.Gorman is an evil, irresponsible vet. I fully believe that she (or her staff) gave my cat the wrong dose of the gas anesthesia. I say this to you from the bottom of my heart: Please protect your beloved pets from her. She will not look out for you or animals, especially in case of emergency.

Dr. Gorman caused great harm to my precious dog. She prescribed medication that was dangerous for his pre-existing condition and ultimately caused him to lose his hearing, she gave him x-rays that exposed him to dangerous radiation and caused his hair to fall out, she was always in a hurry to get me in and out so she could get the next person in. I suspect it's all about money for Dr. Gorman. When I confronted her about all of this, she told me I can't expect her to check every little thing on my dog. I love my dog so much and he's 13-years-old now. He may just be $$$ to her, but to me, he's a precious animal that has been a faithful companion for many years. \n\nI don't know if the person who wrote the good review about her is a staff member or a friend, but clearly they are not telling the truth. I didn't want to give a one-star rating, but you have to put something. Actually I would give a minus one if that were possible.

Dr. Gorman and staff have been WONDERFUL. We have had such good experiences that we recommended her to my parents when they became uncomfortable with care recommendations for the aging family dog from their own vet.\n\nOur (my fiance and I) dog is a three-year-old rescue bulldog that we adopted at age 2. Being a rescue, we had no way of knowing that she is severely epileptic and prone to cluster seizures. After a large emergency bill, I began to research veterinarians in our area that integrated holistic medicine into their practices, as I am quite familiar with some of the harsh side effects of classic epilepsy medication and I certainly didn't want that kind of life for our dog. We decided to give Dr. Gorman a try and couldn't be happier. With a combination of dietary adjustments, traditional medicine (at lower doses) and herbal supplements, our dog has been seizure and head tremor-free for six months and is as bright, energetic and alert as a puppy.\n\nAs for the family dog, Dr. Gorman's recommendations got her eating where she had stopped, responding where she had been lethargic, and alert where she had been unresponsive. Her quality time on this earth was extended by at least ten months. Last month the time came where she had nothing left to give, and Dr. Gorman helped her to peacefully transition out of this world, a comfort for which my broken-hearted family could not be more grateful.\n\nI very enthusiastically recommend Dr. Gorman. We will turn to her for the care of our pets for a very long time to come.

I have no doubt that Sheldon Vet/Dr. Gorman saved my dog, Max's life 3 years ago. She recognized a serious & unusual neurological problem. She provided meds to begin to counter what turned out to be both encephalitis & meningitis. Just as important she had me contact a neurological vet (Dr. Haas in Milford) who was able to perform the specialized treatment to help Max to recover completely. In addition Dr. Gorman's holistic approach solved a long standing problem that Max had with ear infections by suggesting that we switch to a raw food diet. At 6 Max has the energy & super terrier behavior of a two year old. As a side benefit his teeth are plague free. (BTW Max was a neglected 2 year old when we adopted him.)

Went to see this vet for a growth in my dogs mouth. She looked at it like she had no idea what it was and told me to give it a few days. Also maybe it was cancer!!! I don't wait on something like that! I was in and out in less then 10 mins, I noticed my dog has swollen lymph nodes which she didn't even check. This was not worth $42!!!!

I learned about Sheldon Veterinary Hospital when one of my collies was very ill. I drive from 35 miles away to bring my dogs and do not consider going anywhere else. Dr. Gorman takes time to discuss any problems and she practices a holistic type of care. The atmosphere is very cozy and the dogs are less anxious here.

I think Dr. gorman is a great vet. Not many vets practice holistic medicine around here, and that is why I take my dogs there. She does what is only necessary for your dogs health, unlike other vets who prescribe medication for just about anything, when Dr. Gorman will try to figure out what the real problem is.
The negative side to this vet is that the staff is very unorganized. They do not communicate well with each other, and there was a few times I made appointments came in and they have no idea what my pet was being seen for. If you can get past the staffs poor professional book keeping skills then I would recommend taking your pet there for the long-term health benefits Dr. Gorman provides.

Have been bringing my dogs here since the early 1990's, and although a 30 minute drive, the level of care is definitely worth the drive. We've tried other Vet. Clinics, and don't feel we received the personalized service we believe important to us and our pets. Others felt pushy selling prescriptions and supplements, while this hospital points out the benefits versus the possible negatives to allow owners to make a knowledgeable choice. Natural remedies are also an option, which we prefer when possible to improve our pets' health.
Everyone is friendly, loves pets, and provide a cozy environment for the best pet care we've found.

I love this place. I will never take my pets anywhere else. I hated the larger vets where there was always a different doctor and I felt like we were on an assembly line. This place knows me and my dog and cats and make us feel like part of the family.

PROS: Very Friendly and Excellent Care
CONS: Appointment Availability (sometimes)
