After reading mixed reviews here, I was unsure about what to expect.

I waited about 20 minutes on a Saturday morning (a little more than I expected), but the appointment made up for it. The vet tech who saw my kitten took his time giving her an initial exam and taking her vitals. He also explained a few things to me as he checked her out. The vet (Dr. Hunziker) took a very close look at her paperwork and asked me about her diet, habits, anything unusual I'd noticed, etc. He gave her a very thorough exam and fully explained the vaccines he recommended based on what I told him of her past and current living situation.

I don't know if this is standard operating procedure (I've only been to one other vet), but they also cleaned her ears very well and trimmed her nails. Bonus!

My husband and I absolutely love the Staff at Veterinary Medical Center of Brooklyn! Everytime we have taken our cat for either routine shots or special needs, Dr. Hunziker is always very pleasant, professional, efficient and nice. His staff is equally supportive and knowledgeable about animals. I would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a great vet with great service at a reasonable price!

Dr Huntziger and his staff have cared for my dogs for the past 20 years. Their skill, kindness and compassion are exceptional. I would be happy to have my own physician treat me with equal concern. I don't mind waiting if neccesary because I know he will give me all the time I I need to meet my pet's needs

I knew Dr. Hunziker from many years back at the Animal Medical Center in NYC and often heard good reviews. However.....a few years back when my dog got sick I brought him to the doctor and after waiting in the office for 4-1/2 hrs (yes) and explaining to the receptionist (Sharon) that this was an emergency, was told "what's an emergency to you is not necessarily an emergency to us". Finally got to see a TECHNICIAN with my dog who diagnosed it as some sort of infection. Needless to say, 1 month later my dog was in renal failure and had to be put down. The least Dr. Hunziker could have done would be to see my pet personally as the dog was his patient. Too crowded and no one cares as they should. The receptionist runs the office and the doctor goes for the ride. So sorry I ever went there in the first place - would DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMEND. LOST MY PET DUE TO THEIR NEGLIGENCE!

Everyone there is great! Saved my cat, saved my dog. Dr. H takes his time to thoroughly examine all pets. I've sinced moved to NJ and get terrible service. Contemplating taking my cats back to Dr. H even though its a 90 mile ride.

I can't speak for any long term patients, but they saved my pet bird's life. She had caught her toe in her cage - practically ripping it off - and was going in to shock when I rucshed her to see the Doctor here at the last minute. Dr. Hunziker stayed late, amputated the toe, carefully repaired her damaged foot, and helped keep me calm in the process. I feel very lucky and grateful that I was able to find such a doctor. My little baby (a sparrow) is doing beautifully - all thanks to their expert care. They even called to follow up and make sure she was OK! I will be back for any medical needs for my precious baby!

We took our new puppy to this vet to get checked out and get all her shots. You can tell that everyone that works there loves animals. They all doted on our puppy and treated her and us exceptionally. Their rates are very reasonable and the vet took her time with us and allowed us to ask lots of questions. I was very impressed.

My cat got sick and I didnt know what to do but the Veterinary Medical Center of Brooklyn found the problem and treated my cat. She soon got better and recovered to 100%. The veterinarian is very intelligent and friendly, you can see he enjoys what he doing and loves animals. I like the service and the prices werent that high. He even told me where to get the medicine for a good price. If your pet isnt feeling well dont hesitate take them to a veterinarian you might save your self a head ach later.

I phoned about having our cat - a stray adopted over three months ago - come in for an initial checkup. From the start the assistant was hesitant about making an appointment. I explained my cat had fleas and needed treatment, she told me that left untreated it could develop anemia, etc., but still would not make an appointment. She took my phone number saying they would call me back later that day. An hour before closing time, having not received any return call, I called again to inquire about an appointment - the same person said they would not treat my cat because it was a former stray. She said anyway the Dr was booked up for about two weeks, but she did not offer to make an appointment then or any further service. I don't think this was in line with being a good veterinary facility.

Pros: Is near my home

Cons: lack of caring
