I am not one to write reviews but I had such a horrible experience I had to share. I am writing this because this office actually had excellent reviews. Dr. Bishnoi was the rudest doctor I have ever met. I walked into the office and his back was facing me. He turned around and did not greet my dog or me. He did not ask me any questions or show any compassion. She was diagnosed with demodex and he insisted I take her to get ivermectin shots every 2 weeks for "as long as it takes". He knew she was a mixed breed herding dog and when I asked him if there were any side effects he said "No it is just a shot!" he was actually getting frustrated that I was asking questions. He handed me my 2010$ bill and did not give me any advice in terms of other precautions I should take with her. I felt like she was given as shot and I was pushed out of the office with still a very vague idea of her condition. I researched later and found out that ivermectin can be deadly for herding dogs and mixed breeds and has MANY side effects. I don't know about the other doctors but "Dr." Bishnoi should not be in practice!

I wish I had checked the reviews! We are returning customers to the Emerson Animal Hospital. Never had problems in the past. We had used their services through the Friends of Animals Spay /Neuter program. We went for a basic check up for a new kitten. We were recommended the Feline Leukemia / Aids test for the cat. We told the doctor it didn't matter as the kitten had already been exposed to our older cat and the results would not affect our decision to keep the kitten. Seemed pointless. After reviewing the bill $273.99 There was an charge for $62 for the test. When I called to question this, the office manager (who was very nice) advised me the Dr. (Dr. Bishnoi) had discussed this with me and recommeded the test anyway with my knowledge and approval. I assumed responsability for the confusion thinking I should have been paying better attention. They would happily refund me for the tube of Felovite (vitamins) for $11 and would make a note in the animals chart indicating my unhappiness and perhaps they would comp the charge for the next office visit $42. Seemed cool to me. Then I read the reviews on a number of sites and have come to the conclusion that this might be a recurring problem. Not letting people know about the costs of some things and unnecessary tests, vitamins etc. My advice would be to educate yourself through online resources and consider Petco or Petsmart for routine vaccinations. Im not mad, more disapointed. Obviously we are shopping for a more reputable Vet service for our pets. I can't reccomend this vet to anyone because we feel we were taken for a bit of a ride.

Excellent experience at the Emerson Animal Hospital - we worked with Dr. Frogget... AMAZING. She really took the time to explain everything thoroughly and answered all of our questions with patience, and she always had a smile on her face. Even when we had to wait before seeing her for a little bit, she was so apologetic and very sincere. She treated our dog with the utmost kindness and gentleness - which was very much appreciated because he wasn't in a good condition and gets anxious easily. The prices were reasonable, compared to the Oradell Animal Hospital - which I also called for quotes on a visit, x-ray, and anesthesia. If it's your first visit here, you can mention you found them on the web and you'll receive a 15% discount! Wonderful :) When I called and had a load of questions about the visit, the receptionist was so sweet and answered every single one. Same with when we got there and had questions - this was our first visit to any animal hospital, so I was a very nervous owner. The location is small - it looks like a house converted into an Animal hospital, but sometimes the best things come in little packages. They seemed to have very good business, and excellent customer service. Very caring and sincere from all points of the staff. I'll definitely be coming back again! Thanks, Emerson Animal Hospital!

I absolutely do not agree with the assessment of Dr Muller's skill and manner. I have had excellent compassionate service from her for the past five years. She was most caring and professional when we cared for and had to make a difficult decision with one of our dogs, and was most helpful when we decided to adopted another dog. She talks to my children about their responsibility in caring for the pets. They like her and respect her.
I switched to this Animal Hospital from another in the area. I have been very happy. My dogs are healthy and I do not hesitate to return again as needed. I specifically request Dr Muller. I strongly disagree with the previous review.

At this hospital.. It REALLY depends who you get. Dr Wisegarver is one of the original doctors. He is wonderful. Always treats your animals respectfully and always disscusses your options beofer doing anything. We also had to have alot of things done to our dog and when we were done.. He went to the front desk and asked us if the price was OK. He said they would work with us. Great guy!!!

I have to say that my experience was not a good one. The ladies at the desk are wonderful, but my dog was handled in a very inappropriate manner. They didn't allow him any time to deal with what they were doing. They restrained him roughly and took no care with him. I will never be bringing my dog there again. It's a shame because there are some nice people in the office but there hands on care is too rough and borders on abuse. My dog is still suffering from the experience and was not walking well right after because if the manhandling he experienced. He is 6 years old and I have NEVER had an issue with him at a vet.

I think they are good for most of the everyday pet problems we have and minor emergencies. They have x-ray capability and that can be helpful too. The problem I have is that they don't always give you an indication of how expensive the bill might be beforehand. Some of the things on my bill seemed questionable as to their necessity. Plus, I have heard from others that prices charged for the same procedures are not always the same.

We've been taking our cats here for a couple of years now. The staff at the front has always been helpful. Dr. Bishnoi is not an honest doctor, however. He "slipped in" a penicillin injection for our cat without telling us, and then we had to pay for it. We had not agreed to this, and were very upset. At this time, with how bad things are with money, the way we were treated was disgusting. For the way he cheated us, we are going to find another, more honest practice to take our cats to. It's a shame that he gives this practice a "Barnum and Bailey," phony reputation. He makes money for the practice, but doesn't seem at all to care about the animals you bring. Even without him, it seems like this vet practice leaves much to be desired, from the other reviews there are on the internet.

I've gone to Emerson Animal Hospital 3 times now - each time getting different doctors who I really liked. Today I got Dr Muller and she was THE WORST. Rude from the minute I walked in the room. Upset about something in my dog's file that it wasn't up to date (that's not my problem, it's your offices) and then continued to make rude comments to me about how I cared for my dog. The doctor is there to educate you on how to care for your dog, not be condescending and judgmental. Stay away from Dr Muller - she's a rude obnoxiously lady. I won't be going to Emerson Animal Hospital again, they lost my business. What a (rhymes with) witch!

Pros: cute location

Cons: rude doctors, make you wait

We used to bring our dogs to this Animal Hospital. They were very nice, however they did not give my dogs the proper care that they deserved. I would not take my pet here, there are better animal hospitals in the area to go to.

I've been taking my dogs to Emerson Animal Hospital for years - for their routine exams, and for emergencies - and they have always shown the most care and sympathy for any situation we have, whether it be an injury, a spay/neuter, or just routine visits. They know our dogs' names, and it never smells like an animal hospital. The front desk is friendly, even though they're extremely busy. They have always accomodated any situation we've had, and they have an emergency phone number to call after hours.

Cons: Very busy office, but, very accomodating-sometimes you'll wait, but they always get you in.

Dr, Rita Rivero is THE best veterinarian I have met. She can be reached at 201 750-0075 and on the web at demarestveteranarian and has moved to Demarest
