I have been going to Dr. Cresswell's office for about 7 years. The staff and doctors are really nice and helpful whenever there is a problem. Dr. Cresswell is easy going and very kind to my dogs. Any question is never too stupid. He always makes me feel good about the question. I will never go any where else. I have been to another vet because it was an emergency and it wasn't the same as Dr. Cresswell.
Whoever wrote that nasty review has got problems! There has never been a doubt in my mind that Dr. Cresswell is mean or a money taker. He is just the opposite. Very kind and considerate.

Dr. Cresswell and staff at Ithaca Animal Hospital are wonderful. I've been bringing my animals here for nearly seven years. This staff is busy, they work hard and they do a great job. They patiently answer all of my questions, return my phone calls promptly, and attend to my dogs and cats with genuine care.

My adult son brings his dog here, a two hour drive for him, but the excellent service and reasonable prices make the trip worth it.

I was referred to Dr. Cresswell at the Ithaca Animal Hospital when my former veterinarian retired. A vet recommend this vet, that speaks volumes to me. I have nothing but praise for this doctor and his staff and recommend them highly.

I feel sorry for the last person who wrote such a terrible review. I have not known Dr. Cresswell for many years, but I take all four of my pets to his office and feel quite the opposite of the most recent negative review.

The receptionists at Ithaca Animal Hospital have never been anything but kind to me, both on the phone and in the office (the furry ones included :). At the same time, though, I am kind and patient with them. They have never failed to answer my questions regarding medications, payments, etc. and have set up appointments quickly and efficiently.

As for the prices, I was relieved when I moved here and found such reasonable vet services. If you want to find expensive, over the top pet care, move back to where I came from. This vet is incredibly reasonable.

Also, on more than one occassion, Dr. Cresswell has checked out a pet of mine who turned out to have nothing wrong. Most vets (the rude, crooked, greedy type who love trickery) would have charged me for the office visit. Dr. Cresswell took the time to check the animal over and dismissed him/her without charge or checkout. I don't think this is something that a person can expect on a regular basis, but it is an example of the kindness and compassion that Dr. Cresswell demonstrates with his customers.

Finally, I have a cat that was required to stay at the vet with urinary issues. After two days of not getting a urine sample, he was required to stay another night. On Saturday morning, Dr. Cresswell finally got a sample and ran the required tests. He called me to tell me the results (on a Saturday morning, rather than waiting until Monday) and then, get this, offered to bring my cat home (we do not even live in Ithaca, we live in a nearby town). I told him that I appreciated the offer, but that I would come to get my cat and pick up the food he now needed. I was so pleased that a doctor would offer to do that. What a kind gesture! I couldn't wait to tell my husband how much I love living in such a nice area.

I have never written a review in my life, but I was so distraught by the awful words that had been displayed, I had to share my positive story. Everyone's experience is different, but sometimes it's how you look at it.

They let anyone set up a payment plan because they want their money and this is a low income area! It is the only way they will get paid. It isn't some special favor you're getting. I noticed that most of these positive reviews were done by people who have known this shady character for 10+ years. I haven't and this is my experience with Ithaca Animal Hospital: This was my second visit to Ithaca Animal Hospital and will MOST DEFINITELY be my LAST! Both times I had to bring our poor cat to their clinic, the receptionists were rude, as if I was disturbing them from their idle chit chatting. It's not easy for us to leave our adored cat there and the women at the desk don't care! I had a few questions for them and they made it seem like such an inconvenience to just answer a few short questions that I had. The doctor was no different! We were told to call back the next morning and see how our cat was. When I called, he said we had to do this and that and we're going to keep him another day and to please call again in the morning. While still on the phone, I tried to ask him a couple SIMPLE & SHORT questions and after an obnoxious sigh, he gave me some short answer to get me off the phone. We tried to call the next morning but their building is closed on Saturday and Sunday!! The doctor himself told us to call on the day they're closed...thanks bud. We got soaked with charges because they had to keep him all weekend! He didn't have to stay all weekend but they were closed so he had to! DVM? More like doctor of veterinary swindling. I'd recommend to EVERYBODY who cares about their pet or wallet to AVOID Ithaca Animal Hospital! Please learn from my unfortunate mistakes with them and take your beloved pet to people who care and are in the veterinary business, not the business of rude greedy crooked trickery.

Dr Cresswell is an amazing caring vet. The other vets he has working for him are wonderful as well. His prices are more in line with what I as a kennel owner can afford, and since I must use many medicines used on the farm for larger animals, they are all willing to help me adjust dosages, which is wonderful. If you want a reference-contact Jen Thon~ Smalltown Dachs, minature longhair Dachshunds. http://www.doxie.biz

I have taken my puppers to Dr. Cresswell for about the last 10 years. I have to drive much further than the other veterinarian offices closer to my home; however, the service is worth the extra time.I have always had dogs and have had both very good and not so good veterinarians. My family, including my brother who previously lived in Ithaca, have had nothing but good experiences with Mr. Cresswell. I will always remain grateful for his sympathy and help when we had to euthanize my old Brittany. I had called at closing time with my old girl in extreme pain. He stayed at the clinic after hours and never rushed us but instead allowed us to deliberate and reconcile the final decision. I only hope I can go as peacefully. I would recommend his business to anyone, but am sure he already has as much business as he needs.

I have known Dr. Cresswell for 35 years. We graduated High School together. He has taken excellent care of my animals for years. His kindness and caring go far beyond the call of duty. My daughter's puppy came down with Parvo and a vet clinic in Kalamazoo told my daughter that it would be in the best interest of the animal to 'put her down', euthanize her. My daughter called me sobbing. I spoke with the vet there and told them to do what ever was needed to stablize her until I could get her to Dr. Cresswell in the morning. Needless to say, she did have Parvo, but my daughter noticed she was ill right away, so it was caught early. Most dogs die from dehydration due to the virus. My daughter drove up from Kalamazoo and met me at the Ithaca Animal Hospital at 7am. Dr. Cresswell saw her immediately. He kept her for 3 days to treat and watch her. The Kalamazoo clinic told my daughter that it would cost her $1500 to treat her dog. Dr. Cresswell's fee was a fraction of that. He cares about his patients. I am so very thankful he is not only my animals vet, but my friend. Thankyou, Dr. Cresswell.

This is by far the best place I have found for my beloved animals.The girls at the reception desk are always nice.The vet himself is very thorough and comforting.Both of my dogs really took to him right away which is always a good sign.This animal hospital helps people who are on set incomes or low income based.Both of my dogs had to be kept for two days and treated with antibiotic all I needed was $30.00 down and I set up payments of what I could afford each month.Most places don't do this kind of thing.I'm definitely giving these guys thumbs up in there effort.I recommend this animal hospital.
