Dr Vezza has practiced solo for so many decades I've lost count. He's like the North Shore/LIJ ER and a favorite Family Doctor for pets, wrapped up in one. Puppy unresponsive? He dropped everything and saved this puppy. Dog convulsing? Diagnosed liver shunt. Brain damage incurred in a dog fight? He got on the phone for a second opinion, and saved that doggy's life. Emergencies don't come along every day or even every year. But when you have one for your pet, you want a vet who will drop everything, make snap decisions, and do whatever it takes. I love this vet.

To err is human. No vet can be perfect -- this is after all 'the practice of medicine'. But this one, he sure does come close.

I couldnt disagree more as i was reading the negative comments about Dr. Vezza. He operated on my dog and she is now healthy and happy and thats all a dog owner could ask for. He doesn't "just care about money" as some people say. He actually cares and treats my pet and ive had no bad experience with this veterniarian or his staff. Being a vet is not easy and i trust him enough for him to do 2 surgeries on my dog.

After seeing some of the negative reviews, I felt compelled to write my own. Dr. Vezza has been great to me and my dog. He is gentle and kind, as are all of his staff. The front desk girls are so polite! He takes extreme care and is honest. He has even called me on his personal cell phone when I was concerned about something and he was not at the office to speak with me. He really is a good vet, I know a family friend who has been going to him for years too! These reviews below are not accurate, it sounds like some people don't understand there is only so much one vet can do for an already dying dog. When I bring my dog there, I see plenty of happy clients which means he must be doing something right. It is a small office that is VERY CLEAN.

After taking out family dog to Mario Vezza for 14 years, we finally had to say goodbye to her. To say this was the hardest decision of my life would be an understatement. However, it could've been easier if we had a true veterinarian that care about our pet, our pet's well being, and our family's thoughts and feelings.

He treated our dog well until the later years in her life, with not much going wrong in her youth. As her age climbed, and her health naturally declined, we began notice interesting symptoms at the age of 12 to 13. More frequent urination. Constant drinking, and lots of water.

Within the span of a year, twice we found our dog in an odd state of what we originally assumed out of fear was a stroke or seizure. We found our beloved friend huddled in a corner, shaking nonstop, unable to get up or walk. Both times, we rushed her to Vezza as soon as we could, and both times Vezza INSISTED the dog ate something toxic, and pushed the blame on us (stop giving her food, watch what she eats, clean up your garbage, keep a closer eye on her on walks.) Each time he flushed out her system, and she recovered to come home. However, for a year, she continued to urinate and drink far more frequently.

Any questions regarding these symptoms to Vezza, or his "manager" Ashley, were met with follow up questions, and quick dismissals as perfectly fine. This last instance occurred summer of 2015.

Fast forward to summer of 2016, our furry friend began urinating in the house, and STOPPED EATING. We asked Vezza, who told us to simply put a potato in her food so she'll want to eat it. This worked for maybe 4 days. As she was now 13, we were concerned of incontinence becoming an issue. We scheduled an appointment, Vezza gave her a look over and determined the issue to be a bladder infection. We put her on antibiotics and brought her home happy, thinking she would recover.

We were wrong. The NEXT DAY, our dog had ANOTHER incredibly similar episode. Shaking in the corner, could not walk, could not use the restoom. We rushed her to Vezza. Again, we were given the excuse that she ate something and we need to take better care. We notice mushrooms on our front lawn, he immediately blamed the mushrooms, looking for any scapegoat.

We left our dog in his care for about four days, as he attempted to flush our her system and monitor her progression. At one point, Vezza claimed our dog vomited a paper towel, he blamed the paper towel and any chemicals it had - he told us to watch what we throw out and pick up our garbage, again shifting the blame and looking for ANY scapegoat. After a while, she was not eating and began labored breathing -we knew the decision had to be made. We had to say goodbye to our life long friend.

It wasn't until the dust fully settled that we could step back and look at how poorly handled this situation was. Vezza essentially ignored an entire medical history, he ignored our attention to specific symptoms, he ignored other incidents he previously encountered and treated our dog for, and immediately shifted the blame to some "unknown toxin" and us.

For all we know, he very well knew what was going on with our dog and simply kept her hooked up to the IV just to draw out her stay - thus allowing him to charge us more money. He very well knew that second day that our dog would not make it, but he did not tell us this. His status updates would fluctuate, one morning she was eating, the next day she went backwards two steps. We were told during our last visit with her an x-ray would let him see any masses or cancer, but he never even told us he TOOK an x-ray until AFTER she died. And then he STILL charged us for it.

In the end, we do not truly know what brought our friend to the end of her life, but what we do know is that Mario Vezza was clueless, he had no idea what was going on, he didn't look at all the factors, and he cared for more about the paycheck we would get than our dog's life, or our family's feelings. I genuinely hope no family should ever have to go through what we did, and I genuinely feel no family should feel as wrong about their pet's death as we do.

Do yourself a favor, find a vet that knows what he's doing.

No compassion for the animal or its owner. He professes to believing in St. Francis, buthis belief is really the almighty dollar. Some people had a good experience but could be they're his friends or relatives because all those who I know have had bad experiences with lack of compassion, wrong or over medication and unecessary surgery. The last is what my pet experienced. He was perfectly healthy but Vezza said he needed surgery. Then when he didn't eat, Vezza said to bring him in for observation causing him to refuse any nourishment. WITHIN A WEEK HE DIED. When I got to the office my family and I COULD NOT SAY A PROPER GOODBye BECAUSE the vet had hooked him up to an IV and he was so sedated I firmly believe that the vet had already euthanized him. Vezza was so much in a rush because he had an over filled waiting room since he doesn't work any evenings or Saturdays. So he has to make up the revenue by short changing his clients and their pets. THIS HAPPENED A FEW YEARS BACK AND MY FAMILY AND I cannot forget. We are glad we found this site so we could warn others. There are a lot of vets, stay away from this one, even if he's near you. ALSO, he has homeless cats and dogs from whom he harvests blood for transfusions. SEEMS UNETHICAL AND ANIMAL ABUSE

I read some of these negative reviews and felt I had to respond. Dr Vezza and Ashley are very caring and compassionate. We found a beat up mess of a stray 13 years ago and Dr Vezza was tireless in getting her back to health. He gave us a nice discount as I believe he respected what we were doing. That dog lived a happy life for 13 years and when we finally had to say goodbye Dr V and Ashley cried rite along with us. They called the next day to see how we were doing and couldn't have been more compassionate and caring. In the last 14 years we have added 3 cats 2 dogs and a rabbit to our family. They all go to Dr. Vezza and He does an amazing and professional job. As far as his fees, ask around peoplehe is totally fair and sometimes less than other local vets. It's healthcare and even if is for animals you have to pay the costs. You don't expect your MD to work for free or bargain with you! I give Roslyn Village vet a great rating and since he is always seeing patients many others must feel the same way!

Dr Vezza is a common sense, competent practitioner who truly knows how to care for both dog and owner. I would go no where else!

This guy has some real anger issues, he pulled up fast behind me in his Ford truck and almost hit me from behind . Then we get to a stop sign where I was turning but he couldn't wait so he drove into someone's lawn then proceeds to do a burn out In the dirt shooting large rocks at the side of my car (causing 1500 un damages). So I attempt to flag him down tp make hum aware of the damage he caused to my car , so he doesn't pull over he just speeds 80+ mph down a busy ,wet piping rock road. So finally he pulls over slighty I pull ahead of him and he trys to RAM my car, I get out tp see what his problem is and he just laughs and attempts to hit my with the truck then proceeds to try to lure me on his his gated property making gestures of a gun ( I take that he was gonna get a gun and shoot me. All because he was wrong) Long story short this guy is dangerous and has some real issues , there are plenty of vets out there that aren't such a clear danger tp society, bringing your pets to this guy is just wring he does not deserve to get your hard earned money or take care of your beloved pet.

i worked at roslyn village vet for a couple of months. i feel i did everyything that had to be done when i worked. i worked 7 days a week and decided not to go to school b/c i was working there 7 days. one day i went in and he said not to come back. no warning ..nothing. with that i came back on payday for my paybeck and he called the cops on me...why?...i have no idea all i wanted was my paycheck cause i had bills to pay...with that i told him i was going to sue him for sexually harassment because he came up behind me one day at work and pretended to pull down my pants. when i said that he cornered me in the office and threatened to kill me with his finger in my face.. his exact words "ill kill you".... from working there for a couple of months ..my coworkers and i witnessed dr. vezza giving the dogs that were boarding at the office, shotss to drug them up if they were barking too much in the back. i went to walk a dog one night and the dog couldnt even lift his head up let alone get out of the cage and walk.....everything i commented about in this reveiw is unfortunatley true...i am an animal loverrrr and i HATE seeing animals being mistreated so this is more of a warning to the patients that go there...i wouldd HIGHLY recommend NOT TAKING YOUR PETS TO ROSLYN VILLAGE VET..... Dr. mario vezza is deffinitly not the man his patients think he is.

Dr. Vezza is the only Vet i will use for my dog. I have been using him for over 15 years. He also cared for my last dog. He is a bit expensive but I believe you get what you pay for. The office is extremely busy but my dog is my baby, so only the best for him.

Experience- not good. Met my expectations? No. Specialize in anything? pets. Good deal? a bit pricey. Recommend? No. Tried calling to give pertinent pet info and was put on hold with no pick up for an inordinent amount of time. Very disappointing.
