Dr. John Lyle has done surgery on both of my dogs legs for torn ACL. As mentioned in other reviews, they don't charge nearly as much as other places that I researched, and it was a "one cost for everything" deal including all medications, pre- and follow up appointments, tests, etc. Dr. Lyle is very friendly and very attentive. The staff is super nice. This is a walk-in facility, so sometimes there is a wait to see a doctor, but on the other hand I've seen them deal immediately with critical issues like animals hit by cars - just the kind of prioritization you would hope for in that situation. A little off the beaten track, but well worth the trip.

I think Dr. Lyle is a Godsend. He came through for me when I had absolutely no idea where to turn when my 7-mth old Min Pin fractured his knee. Other clinics wanted to charge this outrageous amount for surgery and there was no way I could afford it. It became obvious to me that Dr. Lyle is more concerned with the well being of your animal rather than the money like alot other Vets. I plan to continue to go to him for all my pet care needs in the future. Thanks Dr. Lyle!

John Lyle is my dad. I don't like some of the comments you have said about him. He neutered and clips my rabbit's nails. He is very helpful!!! :)

I have 2 outstanding experiences with Dr. Lyle. First our cat was hit by a car. It took us hours to find it and it had a nasty broken leg with a compound fracture. Dr. Lyle waited after hours at the office for us. He surgically repaired the leg and pinned it and the cat is as good as new! Our dog, we discovered, suffered from a terminal genetic defect. He gave us all our options and potential costs and went over and above to make himself available if we needed him, which we did! I have had numerous animals and vets, including the pet ER, over the years and Dr. Lyle is truly outstanding! He has probably saved us thousands of $$$ !!!

I was not comfortable with them taking my dog into another room to give them their shots. They were very nice but they made me feel very uneasy. Had never been in that situation before and did not like it. I have since switched back to my old vet.

I've been taking my pets to Crest for over 25 years. Drs Lyle were a breath of fresh air. Not only do they take excellent care of your pets, but they call make multiple follow up phone calls to check on their health. Dr. Lyle diagnosed a problem with my dog and helped me find the most cost efficient treatment with still leaving her completely comfortable.

I've been taking my chihuahua to them for some time for an eye problem since I bought it, over a year. I was told it was congenital and would never go away so I bought drops to put in to treat it, which never did much good. While out of town, I took my chihuahua to a clinic there and they prescribed drops which have CURED THE PROBLEM within 6 months. So I don't know why they told me it would never go away. And they didn't prescribe the stuff that cured her. They aren't very responsive or cost-conscious either.

PROS: The veterinarian is personable.
CONS: Not friendly or helpful and don't seem to try to be cost-aware for you.

We have used Crest Animal Hospital for almost 10 years. We have 2 cats & two dogs. Many of our neighbors recommended the office to us after a bad experience with another local vet. My dog had a serious illness and almost died. She was hospitalized for almost 10 days. The staff allowed me to stay with her in the hospital. They often worked around me allowing me to coax my dog to eat to regain her strength when they were unable to get her to eat. They also called us anytime they were there after hours so that we could be with her. I appreciate how caring they are towards animals and the owners.

PROS: Caring and competent staff
CONS: none

I found everyone here to be pretty nice. My only problem is that the veterinarian told me she was taking my puppy to trim his paws and she then gave him all the shots she wanted to without ever telling me or getting consent. I don't know if this is normal or not. I would think that if a vet were going to take my pet away from me into another room, she should tell me exactly what she was going to do. I guess next time I will be more specific about what I want done.
