I am writing this review because of all the bad reviews. Yes Van Alstine has a messy place but he is the only one working there. Me and my family have been using him for years and we haven't had an issue to this day. He is a very nice and knowledgeable man. We appreciate it Van Alstine!

Ok seriously people? You all seem to be hooked up on the way the office looks like...if that's your main concern than you need to get your priorities in check. Dr Van Alstine is an excellent vet and I RECOMMEND him to everyone. My animals have been going to him for several years and I believe he knows more about what he is doing then other vets I have ever been to. And he is extremely reasonable and cares about his patients(humans and animals). And btw its not all about how places look or the location. It's about the experience and care he gives animals. Will always continue to go to this vet for all my pet care needs. :):):)

Yes I admit his office is questionable, but I have taken two of my cats there and he did just fine. I took one of my cats to a different vet to get declawed and spayed and my cat was sore for weeks. I took my other cat to Dr. Van Alstines office and my cat was jumping and pouncing around the very next day with little if any pain. He knows whats hes doing, just wish he would invest a little money into his office.

Since we have several pets, I have been to several vets to see which one I liked the most before going back. If I feel they are adding extra charges or are not very good with the animals, I won't go back. Van Alstine's place is a total mess, but I thought maybe that's because he was more concerned with good care for the animals he sees. Wrong! I felt he was border line cruel, not attempting to calm the dog down before testing for heartworms and he was stingy with the gauze. They kept jabbing at my dog and finally I told them to stop, but they continued. He made no attempt at all to calm my dog or to be friendly in anyway. The paperwork is scattered all over the place and there is no organization at all. The exam table is in the middle of the clutter. I'm totally shocked that the government hasn't shut this place down.

We saw an ad in the local paper for Van Alstine's advertising their clinic on rabies shots at $10.50 per shot. When we got there, the building looks almost abandoned. Inside it's dark and extremely cluttered. They didn't even have examination rooms. Our dogs were administered their shots on a small table in a tiny open space amongst all the clutter. They were giving our dogs the shots before they were even done explaining the charges and filling out the sheets. Our total ended up being $70 instead of the $42 we expected. What they failed to mention anywhere in their advertisement was that they charged $7 for each rabies tag. So it was actually like 17.50 each dog which we could've gone somewhere nicer. On top of it, they charged us an extra $7 just because we were using a credit card instead of cash or check. The "doctor" refused to admit that the advertisement had been misleading and offered no apologies for the misunderstanding. He was absolutely ridiculous. If we wanted to spend nearly 80 dollars, we would've went to our own vet. It's not even the matter of the money, it's the principle that they are misleading people. We refused to pay almost $30 for tags so they just gave us the receipt and since then, our groomers have not been able to reach them by phone for verification. So our mistake of taking our dogs there still plagues us from time to time. I would not recommend this place to anybody.
