I have never been treated so rudely by so many employees at one business, on many separate occasions. I brought my dog here following a dog fight that left her with a small hole on the skin of her abdomen. They performed a surgery, and it was not done correctly. My dog nearly died as a result. When I called the next morning to tell them something was clearly wrong, she needed to be seen, they told me they were booked, and offered an appointment for the next day. I cried she might not even be alive tomorrow. You did this surgery and now youre not going to see her, when im telling you something is wrong?? No, they wouldnt. I called my regular vet, who had me bring her right in. (This had happened around 7pm, so my vet was closed or i'd have gone there first.) My vet was horrified to find the condition they'd left her in. He told me anyone performing surgery on a dog's abdomen must know the skin has to be stitched to the muscles at the top of the inside of her abdomen, otherwise fluid would have a place build up, which is what happened to her. The tissues inside her stomach were so infected he needed to remove a large portion of them. If it were not for my regular vet, my dog would have died at the hands of Babylon Animal Hospital. Every time I have had communication with them, like for example, the 5 times I've since requested removal from their mailing list, my kindness is met with rudeness. Today I was hung up on! This is no way to run a business and I do NOT recommend them.
When my blue merle great dane isis had a bloat attack, i called my favorite vet, Dr Liguori and he told us to rush in right away. He assured me that i got in in time, and i was so scared about money, because i didn't have any. He worked with me, sadly there was no saving her, she made it through the surgery, but she just didn't handle it well after that. He was so kind, and understanding, and didn't charge me for most of what he did. I wouldn't go to anyone else as long as im here in NY
This vet is pretty good. The secretaries are very nice and they always have appointments available at last minute notice. They are also open Sundays. I suggest that you request a vet that has been there a while because otherwise you could get a young/new vet and they seem to go through them a lot (i always get a different one). They are good with prices and honest. If I ask for an expensive medicine they will tell me that it's not necessary and give me a cheaper one.
This is Mister Kitty's vet since 1998 when he was an adopted kitten. True, I seem to spend $100 every time he's sick, but he has chronic rhinitis that he lives with, no cure. Even so, he stays pretty healthy. About this amount covers the exam and the medicines. They have several veterinarians on staff. To me, that multiplies the diagnostic knowledge. It's like a second and third opinion. It is obvious the staff and doctors really care about the animals. I have seen local animal activists bring in injured strays there and the good doctors treat them gratis. That impresses me, it confirms they really care. I have learned through friends that some vets are greedy and they've had negative experiences. If you live around here, you've found yourself a first class vet.
