Our dogs have been going to the Islip Animal Hospital for years. We have never been given an attitude nor were our dogs mistreated in any way. For example, pale gums could indicate a myriad of problems. Which one? Unlike humans, our pets can't tell the doctor what is wrong. We have *always* been treated with compassion and caring at the Islip Animal Hospital. If you have been treated poorly, is it possible your distress over your pet's condition has made you so agitated you might be perceived as being rude? I have never witnessed a problem in over 15 years.

Whoever called this practice a mone pit must be new to veterinary services. Dr. Fischer has always first tried the path of least resistance for both my pet and my pocketbook. He and other doctors there who have treated my three pets over past several years were kind and compassionate and told me when we were throwing good money after bad and that the outcome I was hoping for was not a reality. I have worked for several vets and know how easy it is for them to milk the cow of a grieving pet owner when the pet is terminal. I can't thank Dr. Fischer and his staff enough for all they have done for my pets and me, the pet owner.

I've been to Animal Hospitals around the island such as Commack, Sayville, and East Islip. I've always known about the Islip Animal Hospital, but I've always tried to bypass it assuming it would be a grimy place being the town its in is, well... crappy. Regardless I went in there one day as a last ditch effort being I couldn't afford any other hospital to tend to my cat. It's been 3 years now, I've been to the Islip Hospital around 7 times, all with amazing results, and refuse to go to other hospitals. The doctors and receptionists all really care about your animals situation and due to the cost-efficiency, I feel they do everything they can to help you cure your pet. The doctors are honest to the people saying this hospital is more interested in your money then the situation of your animal, a check-up wouldn't be $39... it'd be $90, like Commack Animal Hospital. Irrelevant, but I highly recommend the Islip Animal Hospital and its friendly staff to any animal problem you may have.

I live in Sayville and travel to Islip Animal Hospital. With at least 5 practices within minutes from me, (4 I have been to) I will continue traveling there. Dr. Fisher is a wonderful, compassionate doctor. Both Dr. Fischer & Dr. Weingarten have always tried the less invasive-inexpensive way first and I appreciate that. My dog and cats are in good hands. I love the fact they attend a clinic at LIVS (Long Island Veterinary Specialists) and took my dogs X-rays there to be evaluated by specialists. They are good guys.

Dr. Young is wonderful vet, she is caring, considerate and kind.

I've been bringing my dogs and cats there since 2007, because one of my dogs had chronic ear problems and digestive problems that 2 PRIOR vets could not diagnose. A friend of mine highly recommended Dr. Young.

She got to the root of the problem by doing a full allergy panel based on his symptoms. Bloodwork revealed MULTIPLE allergies, including Food Allergies, Pollens, Wool, He is allergic to 56 things.

A change in his diet made all the difference. Dr. Young's prices are very reasonable, in addition to her caring nature, and she does not rush out out the door.

When I had to have a few pets sent to Heaven over the years, she utilized the most humane methods, and also allowed me as much time as needed to stay with them afterward.

There are 4 vets in this hospital, but I only use Dr. Young. I like to use the same vet and she is just wonderful.

Worst place ever!! This is a money pit - and they never know what's wrong with the animal. The receptionist is extremely rude and the doctors just pretend to know what's wrong with the animal. I don't recommend this place at all!

15 years and still coming back!?? - ?? - Today
I first went to see Dr. Fisher 15 years ago. Not only does he have a beautiful personality but he's an excellent doctor/surgeon and very caring, as well as his staff. The receptionists are extremely professional and very friendly. I've known Alicia for many years and since day one I have never seen her in a bad mood or with a bad attitude. Dr. Young is also a very, very nice lady. She's very caring and very comforting. When the time came for my Cocker to no longer suffer, if not for her I would have been a big mess, she was very sympathetic and comforting. I however, do not recommend Dr. Conway, she never listens to what you have to say and talks over you. Not a good personality. I have 5 Cats and 5 Dogs, and I would not think of taking them elsewhere. I want the best for my babies and they are the ones that can give them just that.
Thanks Dr. Fisher, Dr. Young, Alicia and staff

I am so surprised that people have had such a bad time I have been using them for at least 20 years, I tell people about this vet all the time the prices are far lower then most and they care about the animals they ever call to see how my dog was doing i have been told by people who bring there pets to other vets about how the bills are really high that was not the case and they took x rays ,blood and ever gave me medications. to take home. the only thing is when you call to make a appointment the girls could be nicer.

This is the worst animal hospital I have ever used! I brought my cat in who was sick, we had no idea what was wrong with him, apparently neither did this animal hospital. They told us he wasnt going to make it, his gums were very pale, they kept telling us they were so sorry. They ran so many tests and with every test they told us he wasnt going to make it. They thought it was a urinary blockage but they couldnt find his bladder turns out that wasnt it, they had no idea what was wrong with him. Finally after about 3-4 days of my cat being there and them doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for him we decided to bring him home because they will kill him much faster. Of course this was against their wishes, telling me I was making a mistake, they need to find out whats wrong with him. That was more than 6 months ago and my cat is doing beautifully!! He is healthy and strong and as loveable as ever. I wouldnt recommend this joke of an office to anyone ever and if you do use them I prey it is for well visits only because anything other than that I dont think they can handle.

I've been taking my never-ending sleau of animals to Islip Animal Hospital for 15 years. Their prices are very good and their knowledge and caring can't be beat. I HATE when there's an emergency on a weekend and have to go to an emergency clinic which charges about 20 times more!
The only thing I have to say is I DESPISE the female doctors at this place, especially Dr.Conway. Ugh. That woman doesn't listen to a THING you say to her! The girls at the desk know this though and always schedule me to see either Dr. Fischer or Dr. Weingarten.
All my animals live to ripe ages under the care and supervision of these doctors and I value them as I do my own fine physician! Finding good medical practioners is not easy to do and when you do get one you hold on to them!

I've brought our many dogs and cats there for about 10 years. When we adopted a dog off the street, it was here that we were given an honest (albeit heartbreaking) diagnosis, and advised not to spend thousands of dollars on what was likely a lost cause.
They have cared for and cured many pets and problems, and have always shown great compassion and personal service. While the price isn't cheap, it isn't higher than other places - and even somewhat less than some we've been to.

Frankly, he previous disparaging review surprised me. I have been going to this animal hospital for more than nine years. The service has been great, the staff courteous. Explanations about procedures and costs have been frank with no attempts to urge me to take needless steps.
I notified Dr. Fisher at my first meeting that my min-pin is a dog about whom I am quite fond, but he is not a child. I had and have no interest in prolonging my pet??s life (if the process leads to his discomfit) merely to satisfy my desires to have him around for a few more months or years.
Unfortunately, many people fail to keep their doctors, veterinarians, and other professionals informed about their needs and desires.

I have given this vet a try upon several occasions, but cannot recommend it. I have gone there a few times for emergency visits, but was not happy with the results & most importantly, their attitude. I would not recommend this vet.
