My opinion does not come from one or 2 visits.I offer my opinion after many visits to Dr.John and his wonderful caring staff.I have several perts ,both cats and dogs.I February my 5 year old boxer was diagnosed with Lymphoma.This was difficult because she was the most loving dog there was in the world.Dr.John and his staff knew and understood how difficult this was.As a doctor he tried everything he could to save her,but it was not possible.He did however go above and beyond to make it easier on all of us understanding the situation.Most Vets would not have went to the lenghts he did.
I am not sure how some of the people came up with there rating ,but I know how I came up with mine.It is based on many experiences with Willowbrook Animal Clinic.and Dr john.Just recently Dr.John saved the life of a cat I adopted when all test and opinions were that my cat would not survive.Dr.John and his staff did not accept that and my family is happy that he didn"t .My cat Meatball is now on the Mend with a heart felt thanks to These wonderful people.

In response to if Zero stars were possible...... I'm not sure who this person is but clearly they have the wrong Doctor. Dr. Palescandolo is wonderful Veterinarian as is his staff. He is the most professional Doctor I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. My pets are well cared for and loved as if they were his own.

Perhaps the reviewer below me should consider that the world doesn't revolve around her and IF a mistake was made that people are human and do make errors.

I pity whomever this person uses from here out, clearly she is not dealing with a full deck.

I brought my pets in after I heard Dr. John was reasonable. I have a dog and a cat. The vet would not stop talking long enough to find out why I was there. He bad-mouthed his previous client and my former vet. Made me really uncomfortable. What did the guy say about me after I left? Then the staff made a mistake with instructions for the antibiotic for my dog. And when I asked them to fax records to another hospital, they sent the info for the wrong pet and made me feel like it was my fault for not bringing the records with me. What???? This place is bad unprofessional news. Stay away!

Love Dr. John - If It Wern't For Him My Trooper would have died. Never found a more compassionate vet or one more capable of diagnosing conditions.
He also treated my Bella who was vet aggresive due to fear and gave her the same compassion and care. In my opinion they don't come any better than Dr. John and that is why I refer my friends and family to him as well.

I've recently brought my new puppy there and the experience was incredible. Both the Dr and his staff are very welcoming and nice. I always walk out with all my questions answered and the level of care they provide is high. I am glad I found Dr. John and his staff. I also want to describe how clean they keep their hospital and how nice it is to walk in and always be welcomed with smiles. I recommend Willowbrook Animal Clinic to anyone looking for a caring vet and staff members that are not only nice, but know what they are talking about and have compassion for your animals. It's nice to walk in and have them know exactly who you are and know the name of your pet...it shows they really listen and pay attention to you when your there.

Dr. John seems more and more distracted and the prices keep going up. I had to ask him to look in my dog's ear three times before he heard me. We are so sad about this.

We met Dr John initially at AERA months ago when our beloved beagle Bella got sick from eating pennies without us being aware and she got seriously I'll with Zinc poisoning but by the time we knew she was sick and took her to the vet all her organs were failing and it was just too late, we did try everything to save her anyway but she passed on her own te following day. Dr John was amazing through the whole process, we went there feeling guilty for not knowing she ate pennies and not seeing any signs of poisoning to leaving feeling like we were great dog parents for taking her in and trying anything to save her instead of giving up. We heard through a friend that he has his own practice in the area. We immediately switched to his office! In the past week we have taken all three dogs for different reasons, one for ear issue, another had this tumor like thing that popped up out of nowhere and our other dog who got bit badly by our other dog! Each visit was a last minute appointment, the staff here are so accomodatiing and got us in same day, there were no long waits, staff is friendly, on point, and most of all very compasknowledgable knowledgable! Dr John spends the time to explain the dogs issues, he truly cares and does an awesome job taking care of my furbabies! Hes not the type of doc who is in it for the money either. I've been there tree times this week alone and I'm not broke, this is another bonus! He didn't rush my girl who got but into surgery, he wanted to try to heal her with meds first and if she got worse then he would do surgery, anywhere else I'm sure they would have skipped right to surgery just to make a few bucks.... She did end up needing the surgery a couple days later, I called first thing in the morning and got an appointment right away, everything went smooth and am very happy with her results! I am very impressed with every aspect of my visits and plan to take my two cats next week for their vaccines, and will continue to use them as our primary vet! Thank you Dr John and crew, you are all amazing. I highly reccomend this office!

It took forever to check out and that new older girl seems like she thinks she's better than everyone and doesn't help the other girls at all. This place used to be great and super efficient. I still really like Dr. John but now he seems really disorganized in the new place. There are more girls and the service is terrible and no one seems to know much about animals.. The new place is nice but I really miss feeling like the staff cares about me and knows me and my animals. Sorry, can't like you on facebook!

I could have written Michael''s review myself. This hospital used to be awesome and it's just not the same. Looking for a new vet where the staff is a little more informed and the doctor takes more than one minute with my dog.

I was shocked at how honest they came across. I got in early since it was my first time there, and they were able to take me fairly quickly. They handled the incoming patients really easily, and were very good with my terrier, Bentley. They didn't try to bulk up the cost with unnecessary items, and Dr. John even told me to use just regular fish oil for Bentley. My old vet would have sold me something marketed towards dogs! I will definitely be using him for all my vet needs in the future. It is refreshing to find a vet that doesn't try to convince you of purchasing every item, test and vaccination out there. A++

Today I used Willowbrook Animal Clinic for the first time for my sick dog. Absolutely perfect experience, will use them again. ON time appointment, very friendly, and professional, No high pressure sale of add on items, diagnosed lyme disease right in the office. John and Carol spent a lot of time with us and both offered excellent advice on taking care of the sickness. The office charges were very fair. Bob S

Samson was our first "son" and when he became ill I really can't express how GREAT Dr. John & Carol were to us. They really got us through one of the worst times of our lives. They were also there to give advice when we told them we were looking at Newfoundlands! Noah joined our family in November of last year and he is wonderful and EVERYTHING that Dr. John said about the breed rings true! I have had dogs all my life but I have never had a vet and staff that REALLY care so much. I am forever grateful and would never consider anyone else. Thank you!Terry & Rich Matalone

Our Doberman was adopted at 5 months old and had a seizure three days after having him. After 1 1/2 years of owning Bentley and about 6 vets later, we finally came across Dr. John and Carol. Bentley is now healthy and active and his seizures and thyroid are under control closely watched. If you want a Vet who loves your family and pet like his own, Dr. John is the man for you!
Love, Elena, Dan and Bentley

I run a professional pet sitting service in the greater Wayne area. I have experienced the poor bed side manners of many of the area vets over the last 10 years in business. I was so impressed with Dr. John's knowledgeable and empathetic nature, I decided to take my own dog to him. I am so happy my pup is under his care! Many of my client's have echoed the same sentiments about his caring and compassionate manner in which he treats all of my fur friends. I recommend Dr. John and his staff to everyone!

Dr. John is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, patient and caring! I have been to other vets in NJ where I felt like I was at a used car sales lot with all of the things the vet was trying to sell me. Dr. John has never once tried to "sell" me a product or med for my dog where the same results could be achieved with less expensive and/or over the counter medications that I may have right in the home! My dog loves going in to see both Dr. John and Carol. Thanks for your committment to pets and their owners.
Love,

I used to go to a vet in Montville, NJ who I had a few bad experiences with and since then, I've been going to Dr. John at the Willowbrook Animal Clinic in Lincoln Park.
I used to have cats and now have dog that sees him.
He's extremely caring and patient with the animals and knows what he's doing. His office staff is very courteous and knowledgeable too.
My dogs gets very nervous when he is given shots...they allow me to try and calm him down and if I can't...they do their best. They are very hands on and this helps my dog with his anxiety.
Anytime I have a problem with my dog they are always there for us. If I can't get through on the phone b/c they are with other patients and leave a message, they return my calls right away.
Any questions I have, I call -- they are very patient and are always there with answers and suggestions.
I've NEVER had a problem with this vet in all the years I've been using them.

I have recently moved to Central NJ and will continue to use Dr. John -- the 1hr commute is worth it. A good doctor like him, is hard to find!

PROS: Patient, Courteous, Knowledgeable
CONS: none!
