My mother brought our 12 year old cat in because she was vomiting at the recommendation of her regular vet because her liver enzymes weren't right. We thought she would get the best care possible. The reality is, our cat got tortured to death. It all started when they wanted to biopsy her liver and check for cancer. During the procedure, they managed to puncture her colon.
What followed was a phone call to my mother saying that the cat needed to be rushed into surgery and needed approval and money before they could operate. Are you kidding? We had to pay for ACVSs negligence. After my mother gave the green light, our poor cat waited over an hour and a half for the surgery. The surgeon said it would have gone better the sooner she got in. If thats the case, why did you wait around for over an hour? Complete and total incompetence.
After the surgery our cat wasnt herself. Her abdomen was filling with fluid and she looked like a balloon. Did they draw some off to relieve pressure? No. Did they bother to figure out where it was coming from? No. All they did was continue pumping fluids into her via IV and shoved a feeding tube up her nose and down her throat. Our cat suffered every minute while she was at ACVS and ultimately died there because of they were just too inept. I wouldnt recommend this place to my worst enemy. They dont care about your pet, just your wallet.

I came to Atlantic coast with my cat that was having difficulty breathing. He was taken in right away to be treated. The staff at Atlantic Coast was extremely helpful in my time of stress. They also came up with a diagnosis for my cat and saved his life I would go to Atlantic coast for any other emergencies and problems that would occur down the road.

On February 6th, my world nearly crashed & burned when Willy my boy lay dying in my arms. I was referred to Atlantic Coast Vet Specialists, where miracles took place. Matthew Siclari DVM presented himself & I said to myself ??Oh my God, he??s 12 years old.? Well, this knowledgeable, Compassionate and dedicated professional skillfully, diligently treated Willy thus saving his life! I recommend.

Dr Kramer pulled our Harley Bear through his terrible ordeal. Words cannot express the magnitude of our gratitude. He is a wonderful Dr and truly an asset to his profession. He offered comforting words and compassion to us during that emotional time. The staff who greeted us each with a smile and helped with his care.

I give this ER service 0 stars. Do NOT go there. If your animal is in need of emergency service this is not the place that will give you the care that you need. I went there with my dog and the receptionist just chatted to other clients while I waited anxious to have my pet receive er care that he desperately needed for an acute eye case. When she finally came over she looked at his eye and said, "He's not going to die." And promptly walked away into the back. I didn't see her again until 35 mins later after knocking loudly on the 'employee's only' door. She came out finally and simply said, "We have 2 patients we can't see him now." Now my lovely dog might loose an eye because she couldn't take a minute out of her chat time to look at him. I do NOT advise anyone to go there. If this is any indication of the medical treatment you will receive there I highly recommend you go elsewhere, even if it means a few extra minutes drive.

I brought my one year old beloved yorkie in as it was after hours at her vet. My dog was not only given the wrong diagnosis, but also due to an incorrectly performed procedure had her bladder burst which caused her death. This has been confirmed by another Vet and an autopsy. I was treated extremely poorly and charged unethical fees. I have still never been given a return phone call since the death of my dog. I am not even sure if the head of the practice knows about my situation as I have not ever heard back and am treated hostilely by the reception desk whenever I have tried to reach him. If animals had any actual rights I would file charges. I would never bring my pet here! I hope this saves someone from the needless suffering my pet and I went through. This situation has been heart breaking!

I brought my very ill dog in to see the doctors at Atlantic Coast after my own veterinarian had run out suggestions. I found the hospital to be very clean, the staff to be very helpful and answer all my questions. They found out what was wrong with Dutch and treated him appropriately. I am happy to report he is making a full recovery. I would definitely recommend this hospital to everyone I know. They get 5 stars from me and Dutch.

I had recently adopted my cat and came home late from work to see him having a really hard time breathing. I rushed him to Atlantic coast vet since they were open at 11 at night. He was immediatly seen by a doctor who sat and went over all of his issues. they exceeded my expectations and i would recommend them for all emergencies and care.

I also have to say I disagree with Karen S.I brought my dog into Atlantic Coast Vet Spec on an emergency. My dog was was quickly diagnosed with Addison's disease, She was apparently in whats called an addisonian crisis and could have died, but Thanks to all doctors and staff my dog is still with us and doing incredibly well. I could not be any more grateful to them for saving my "bud" Diesel. I would recommend Atlantic Coast to everyone I know.

I would strongly disagree with Karen S. and other negative comments. My wife and I were impressed with the quality of care and compassion shown to us and our dog "Henry" from the staff at Atlantic Coast Vet. Henry's multiple medical problems were diagnosed quickly and the severity of those conditions were explained to us. We had been here 2 years before to help treat our cat's vomiting. They have supportive, caring, and knowledgeable staff and we would go back if needed, but highly recommend them.

I brought in my 8 year old english bulldog who was really sick at the time. They immediately were able to diagnose the problem and got my dog into surgery the next day. The staff there was so kind and compassionate to us through this difficult decision, they did not rush me into making a decision they understood my concerns with my dogs age and my financial situation. I could not have been happier. I am so glad to still have my little girl around who is completely back to normal thanks to the doctors and staff who cared for her. I am so surprised to see such negative reviews because our experience was wonderful and we will be using them in the future.

I have taken my dogs there and thought they were ok but very expensive. Now I am very nervous about going there again. It is very difficult finding a vet that is open 24 hours when your animal is in need. I just hope they will help my animals if I need them again.

Delighted
I have known Dr. Kramer and his staff for several years and can't tell you how delighted I have been with the professionalism of his staff and the miracles he has performed for my pets and others I have gotten to know while in the waiting room. They absolutely love pets here and do cart wheels to save them. I have had both cats and a dog and each was lovingly cared for and I would never ever take my pets who need critical care to ANYONE else. The office has nearly all the same equipment used on people in a hospital (I have a hospital background) and they can treat most anything a pet would come up with. Don't consider going anywhere else.
