Dr Goza is the best I drive my animals over 100 miles to see him and have talked to people who drives even farther than I do because he is worth the drive because he truly cares about helping the animal not getting rich like all the other vets I been too my dog got ran over and i took her to the dove hospital in Portland they said I needed 500.for just the X-ray which was how much cash I had they would not even do they X-ray because then I wouldn't have enough to pay to for treatment and that i needed about 3000. to 4000. dollars to get her treated and that if I didn't have it I should put her to sleep and charged me 165. for a couple pain pills and did nothing for her just sent her home. the next day I went to Dr Goza he took X-rays fixed her leg and took another X-ray to see if her leg popped back into place (it did) and gave me pain med's and only charged me 163. . and she was fixed she walked out all the others act like money hunger cold hearted people who care more about how much money they make than about the animal they are caring for . Goza saved my dog and for that I love him with all my heart he may not have a fancy office but its because he does not over charge people so he can afford to have one. he charges less because he knows how much people love there pets and feels you should not have to be rich to be able help your pet when they need it he is trulely the best and the people who have seen him know it and we would be blessed to have more vets like him I Love You Dr Goza Jill Hicks

dr goza restored my faith in the practitioners of veterinary medicine which had been seriously challenged during 15+ years of taking care of abandoned and mistreated animals. he is not only an expert, but he is kind, empathetic, and funny. he probably does not even realize that he is a hero in my part of the northwest. thank you, dr. goza for caring so much and for being here for our critters and for us!

Dr. Goza and his staff are amazing. His office is very simple, rustic, and no frills, but the service is great, affordable, and full love for all animals. They make sure to provide great service at a resonable cost. We dive about 100 miles to take our two dogs we (french bulldog and terrier mix) to see Dr. Goza and his staff. He his business has been a conerstone in Astoria and in the vet community for decades. He came highly recommended from many sources including other vets, and we have not been disappointed.

The post a few back about the female vets is completely BS, they are very caring and compassionate veterinarians who care for pets as lovingly as Dr. Goza. I was told that as employees they have price lists that they are instructed to follow by their employer, however they make it as afforadale as possible within their abilities (cheaper than any other vet I know of). One of those women started as a volunteer highschooler cleaning cages and assisting Goza before vet school, and because of that now has the same practice mentality and goals as he does- to make your pet better and not drain every nickel from you. This is a great clinic.

We have taken our cats to Columbia Veterinary Hospital for some 8 or 9 years and they have received excellent care by Dr. Goza and his staff. We mostly see Dr. Matt Didlake, as he has cared for our cats over the years, which has resulted in a mutual friendship. We live in Nehalem, which is some 40 miles one way from the clinic in Astoria. It's well worth the trip to have our beloved kitties treated by a trusted Vet who is so gentle and caring. When Dr. Didlake is in our area, he will make a house call when necessary to care for our cats, thus relieving our cats who dislike car travel and us the long drive.

Dr. Goza is one of the most caring Vets I've been to. I own a springer spaniel that has had several health issues and I trust Dr Goza to take care of all his health care needs. Our dog is a member of our family and Dr Goza is the only person I trust to take care of him.

Dr. Larry Goza is the best vet I have ever encountered in all my years having to deal with vets (I am 51 and have lived from Seattle to LA, so have experienced many vets.) He is compassionate and the health of your pet is what matters, not the dollar amount he can get out of you. I found that the prices he charges are the most reasonable I have EVER been charged. I was charged for blood work/tests which amounted to $25 and my mother took her cat into a vet locally and was charged $200 for almost the same tests, and her cat is no longer with us. I wish I was an animal and Dr, Goza was my vet. And I had him recommended to me by at least 20 plus people in the Longview/Kelso/Kalama area. He is worth the drive and I wouldn't put my baby in anybody else's hands.

The head of this vet clinic is well-regarded and respected in the community, and you'll want to ask for him by name - Dr. Larry Goza. Some of the less experienced, part-time associates working at the clinic are lacking in empathy or personability, although there are pleasant staff members. After a vet made some inappropriate and insensitive remarks immediately after one of our pets died at the clinic, we chose to look for another local clinic, but would still single out Dr. Goza as a great vet.
Another veterinarian likes to prescribe somewhat expensive vitamins and natural remedies, as well as the BARF (raw food) diet, which some people love and others hate; make sure that the vet you choose here is in "tune" with you and your pet.
