I really like that Dr. Ficarra really treats each animal individually. She keeps you informed with different issues that come up in your pets health and what you can do to treat or prevent any diseases.

Dr. Ficarra is wonderful! She saved my cat from from so many things. With the proper diagnosis and medication my senior cat Ziggy can now live her golden years happy and comfortable. Kind and caring hands from both staff and doctor.

I had to bring our pup into Downtown Vet for the first time last month. Our other veterinarian retired and HE told us about Dr. Ficarra. She was patient and caring with our sick boy. Turns out he got kennel cough from a kennel, poor little guy. But I digress, Dr. Ficarra is wonderful and will be a nice replacement for us.

I bring my dog to work with me sometimes. Sometimes I get swamped at the office and I'll be there for over 12 hours some days so I like to have Scotty with me. He was having stomach issues and I could not get him an appointment to our vet. My mom uses Dr. Ficarra because she makes house calls. I always thought that was ridiculous, but when I needed her to come to my office to look at Scotty, she was there. She was professional and courteous and fixed my boy right up.

My family and I have recently relocated to NYC. Dr. Ficarra is not only one of the nicest people I have ever met, but she is great vet. I thought it was unheard of to have a vet pay house calls, but when we needed it, she was there. My mother was the one who recommended you all, because she has been in New York for years. I will certainly be taking her recommendations more often.

I love this clinic! I have been taking my dog here for many years! My dog loves the workers and vet here and gets excited every time he sees them. On top of the top notch service they have provided to me, I would like to thank the Downtown Vet Clinic for also having real affordable prices during our tough economic times.

You and your pet are not just another patient/client when you go see Dr. Ficarra. She is so caring with your pet that you will not even mind having to bring them in. When my vets office was closed, we called Downtown Vet Clinic and Dr. Ficcarra came to home the next night. She helped us with our dog sally, immensely. Thank you Dr. Ficcara!

I have been told that I am a silly old woman for years now. Well, I lived up to that name last year when I took in a Great Dane. At first, I was just going to foster him, but I fell in love and decided to keep him. It was only a few months after I decided to keep him, that I fell and really injured my hip. When the big guy got sick a few weeks ago, I was panicking. When I could not even get through the phone lines to my normal vet, I asked around and a friend at our dog park told me that Downtown Vet does house calls. When I called, they confirmed and set up a visit. Dr. Ficarra was so helpful and got my big boy back to his healthy state! Thank you so much Downtown Vet Clinic!

We unfortunately had to put our dog, Sam, down last week. He had been suffering for a while now and it was time. The staff at Downtown was just great. We've had to bring him in a few times in the past couple of months and they were always so nice and helpful to my family. If and when we get another dog, we will only take bring him here. Thanks for your kindness at this very tough time for my family

So one day I walk outside my house, and there sits this little puppy. I had no clue of what to do. I remember a friend used to work at Downtown Veterinary Clinic, so I decided to bring the little guy there. I never had the intention of keeping him, but when they told me he's as healthy as could be, and gave him all his shots, I decided to keep him, and now we're the best of friends. I just wanted to say Thank You to everyone at that pet clinic, cause they took the best care of me and the little guy.

When I got my little puppy, I knew exactly where to go to get all her puppy shots, and to get her "fixed". Downtown Veterinary Clinic is the only place to go for all your pets health needs. If I were an animal, I'd hope my owners would take me there!

I took my kitten into the Downtown Vet Clinic because she kept throwing up and I thought that something bad was really bad. When I went in they were able to take her right away. They were able to give her some kind of medicine and said within the next couple of hours she would be ok. The vet was so friendly and understanding how scared I was for my kitten. Thank you so much to the Downtown Vet Clinic.

I'm not really sure if I'm the one that should be determining Downtown Vet Clinic's rating, but since my dogs aren't old enough to have a Google account I guess I will write one for them....
Suki & Kiko seem to love the vet, even when I am just walking by with them they get all excited and try to break through the door to get in. My dogs both have food allergies and I was in and out of the vet a lot the first year and they were always able to get me in quickly. Also, when my uber-senior citizen cat got sick last year they gave her quality care that got her back on all 4 feet.

I have trusted Dr. Ficarra to care for my cats for over 15 years. I first met her before she had her own clinic, when she was filling in for my previous vet. My friend's cat had stopped eating and had nearly starved herself to death. Dr. Ficarra gave the cat fluids and explained to us how to force-feed her baby food. It was touch and go for awhile, but with Dr. Ficarra's help we were able bring that cat back from the brink of death, and she went on to live a long and healthy life. Dr. Ficarra has been my vet ever since, and I would never take my cats to any other vet.

I wish Dr. Ficarra also treated humans! She is so caring and thorough that goes above and beyond the norm. She not only treats my Sparky thoroughly and with warmth,(her love of animals is instantly apparent) but, explains whats going on and how to keep him healthy and safe. She has never tried to sell me products that he did not need, or been flippant about my concerns. She has also has called to follow upon his progress when he had been sick. She is a Godsend!

I have been a pet owner for most of my adult life (67 years) and have been to several vets in Chelsea but none have matched the care provided by DR. Ficarra and her staff. They are there when you need them and include you in any decision making your pets health care and welfare. As a nurse for the past 45 years I wish more "people" physicians were like her

Dr. Ficarra was our vet for the 10 months that I had my dog (she was put to sleep this week). She was so wonderful. She gave me her personal email and cell phone number if I ever needed to contact her in an emergency. One Saturday I had to go to work but my dog had needed to be sedated at the vet because of pain in her neck that needed to be taken care of. Dr. Ficarra took my dog to her apartment with her after the clinic closed so she wouldn't be alone and I could go to work.
