Dr Chaitman is amazing - what a great soul! She has seen two of my dogs for non-routine items, one with a growth and the other with an abscess and she has given such love and attention to each matter, I'm amazed! I would recommend her to

I went here because of all the good reviews & was so disappointed-- over & over again. Finally I decided to seek out another vet but I was so discouraged by the treatment here, I want to write this review not just to advise prospective

Never had any problem, seven+ years, complete trust in her. You know what convinced me? She said she had taste-tested multiple dog foods. Now that is dedication - and imaginative doctoring.

I found Dr. Chaitman when my 2 year old dog was injured and incorrectly diagnosed at two other vets. Dr. Chaitman reviewed the case and helped me find a specialist for free. I have been seeing her ever since and my dog is now 10. She is smart, thorough and known for catching things other vets miss. She loves animals and always puts them first unlike other vets I have visited. Also, her practice is never a crazy scene of animals which really stresses my dogs out. They like going to see her. Her staff is great as well. For the person making the comment about her not getting back, I've never ever had that problem unless she was handling an emergency or urgent cases and since my dogs have had numerous emergencies over the years and have likely been the cause of her having to delay getting back to someone, it would not bother me. If you are looking for the best vet in the city and for the best care for your pet this is the place.

Pros: Smart, thorough vet who takes the time to be sure your pet is healthy

Cons: It is on the East side and I live on the West side

Dr Chaitman is pretty unreliable and very hard to get in touch with. I don't care how many animals she's helped, if I leave several messages for a doctor begging her to call me back and she leaves at the end of the day without having gotten in touch with me, it's just plain unacceptable.

I highly recommend Dr Chaitman to all who really need expert advice or have a difficult diagnosis. She absolutely nails the problem every time I've had to bring my dog there. I trust her comepletely. I really appreciate the written report and summary of the your visit before you leave the office.

5 years ago, i virtually stumbled past Jen Chaitman's office - and given the proximity to my apartment, was stunned that I didnt know about them earlier. After finding out that other "dog-obsessed" clients of mine had their pups treated with Dr. Chaitman, I decided to switch the care of my beloved pups to VIMA. To say that it was my best decision in years is a massive understatement. Over the past 5 years, the level of care that my "kids" have recieved have been nothing short of remarkable. PEOPLE DONT GET THIS KIND OF CARE!!!. And for 4 1/2 of these past 5 years - the checkups have been complete, the appointments have been handled properly and the pricing - completely fair. But just about 6 months ago, after not eating for about a week, my beloved Yorkie, Tigger was diagnosed with an aggressive Lymphoma. It is not an overstatement when I say that without Dr. Chaitman and her entire team at VIMA - I would have went completely off the cliff. From the initial diagnosis to orchestrating his surgery, consulting with his chemotherapy and assisting in setting up his protocol with an oncologist - Dr. Chaitman's expertise and sheer knowledge of all things canine was as amazing as it was comforting. Personally, I tend to run toward the O/C type of New Yorker - and when it comes to my pups - nothing is too good for them - and I wouldnt hesitate to take them ANYWHERE for the best care possible. It is absolutely my good fortune and probably the Tao of my Bichon that VIMA is a "stone' s throw" from my apartment - but no matter - if they were miles away, I would trek to wherever they were....They are THAT good at what they do and equally as good at how they handle the owners and the immense anxiety that comes with a sick companion.

To fully understand what VIMA did for my yorkie, Tigger and what they continue to do for my bichon, Pooh - feel free to go to: tiggerandpooh.therenovatedhomecom
They are a phenominal group of caring professionals.

Pros: The level of care - the attention and the knowledge make it a great vet hospital

Cons: dont really have any cons.

My husband arrived at the vet's clinic on time and was told that they did not have an appointment in their records. After several minutes of back and forth, they were able to squeeze our cat in for a check-up. That's about the nicest thing that they did. Our cat was weighed, examined and a stool sample was tested. Thankfully the test results were good, tso the diagnosis was a potential food allergy. We walked away with a prescription for special food and were told to come back to the office on Monday to pick up some medication, to treat her just in case, she did have a minor intestinal issue. I showed up on Monday to pick up the medication and was told that it was not ready. The tech/nurse in the office took down my phone number and promised to call back the next day to let me know when it would be ready. Needless to day, I never heard from her or anyone else in the office. On Tuesday, I called the office and Ceasar informed me that the medication was ready to be picked up. He also informed me that he called my husband and left a message. I showed up at the vet's office and much to my dismay was told that they could not find the medication. I also spoke to my husband who confirmed that he did not have any missed calls or voicemails on his phone from the vet's office. This has been a huge hassle and apparently its indicative that they really don't care about your pet or the lack of customer service that they provide. In addition, what's the point of having 24 hour care, if they cannot contact a vet or a tech when need be? I tried to rectify the issue by asking them to try and contact the person that I spoke to on the phone, but surprisingly, they were not able to do so. This place is a total and complete joke with a bunch of incompetent morons working there. How good can the care be if the vet's are not intelligent enough to realize that hiring competent front desk staff is as important as the care they are supposed to provide to helpless animals?

Three years ago my baby (Sophie, a Labrador Retriever) came into my life. Dr. Chaitman was referred to me by someone who only knew of her, but had never gone to her. Ever since, Dr. Chaitman has been both loving and caring. Sophie actually looks forward to going to the doctor! Dr. Chaitman's care has been outstanding! Everyone that works with Dr. Chaitman is wonderful. Sophie loves Marco as well as Duwanna (sp?) and absolutely ADORES Cesar, Dr. Chaitman's office manager/receptionist. I think the fact that Sophie is never uptight about going to Dr. Chaitman's office says a lot about the care she receives, and the people she receives it from!

Dr. Chaitman provides exceptional animal care. My dog suffered from chronic skin problems, and Dr. Chaitman diagnosed her with seasonal allergies, something our orignial vet never even mentioned. As an educated professional myself, I was truly impressed by her intelligence and sensitivity. The hospital is immaculate and organized, the facilities are state of the art, the waiting area is pleasant, and all the staff is very friendly and helpful (particularly the receptionist). I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Chaitman and her animal hospital.

Pros: Efficiency, intensive care, diagnostics

Cons: Upper East Side and I live downtown (but I find it worth the commute)

Dr Chaitman is one of the kindest, smartest people I have ever met. My dog really does not need a specialist, but we use her anyway b/c she is amazing. I tend to be a worrier who can't wait for my pet to be seen the second I detect a problem. jennifer will literally drop anything for her patients. She will calm down the worried pet "parent". She takes your anxious calls regading test results as soon as she can. With a degree from UPENN in Internal medicine, she has an amazing education to back up her instincts. She explains things to you in a simple way without making you feel stupid. You get great quality as well as a bedside maner that you would never get at a larger hospital. I only wish she could treat my human kids! Over the years, I have come to consider her as a friend and I know that most of her patients feel that way. I actually feel sorry for people who go to other vets.

Pros: extremely compassionate and intelligent, keeps current on veterinary medicine issues, and PHENOMENAL bedside manner

Cons: a little pricey, but everything in Manhattan is

I really can't say enough good things about Dr. Jennifer Chaitman and VIMA Specialists. They took care of my cat Roy for several years while I lived in New York. He was their very first cat patient, and he ended up having two surgeries there. Dr. Chaitman and the staff truly treated him like he was one of their own pets. They were wonderful throughout the entire ordeal, even calling and emailing my friends and parents in another state to let them know that Roy was doing okay after his surgeries.

When Roy got sick the week that I was supposed to move halfway across the country, Dr. Chaitman personally called a vet school classmate of hers to see if he could be transferred there. When she realized it would be a 3-hour drive for me, she tracked down another referral closer to my new home. Luckily he wasn't that sick - because I had already decided that if he was, I would literally stay in NYC just so that Dr. C could take care of him.

This is in contrast to the way we were treated at the Animal Medical Center - I'm sure a lot of people have great experiences there, but that was not the case for us. We went to VIMA after waiting two months for an appointment at the Animal Medical Center and having the appointment cancelled a week before we were supposed to get in - because the doctor decided to go on vacation that week. He was unwilling to make any extra time in his schedule, and wouldn't reschedule the appointment for yet another two months. Needless to say I was less than charmed. When I called VIMA, they put us at the top of their list - for the very first day they were open.

I HIGHLY recommend VIMA and Dr. Chaitman. It is expensive but worth it, and they will work with you on payments. I really don't think you could find a more qualified and compassionate vet anywhere. We were extremely lucky to have them while in New York.

the vet is great. a bit expensive, but definately recommended. the receptionist needs to learn some manners and people skills tho. but you don't go there for the reception, so again, definately recommended.

Pros: great vet

Some vets are nicer to animals than they are to people, but Jennifer is as sympathetic to the worried humans as she is to the sick dogs. She has been very thorough in pinning down some unusual problems my dogs have had and in thinking outside the box for treatments. The only problem is that my old dog is always so happy to see her that his symptoms temporarily subside when he gets there, leaving me struggling to explain his problem. Expensive but worth it!
