As an English Bulldog parent we??ve received nothing but exceptional care from Dr. Chris & staff at Gresham Animal Hospital. We had taken our bully to 4 other vets before someone recommended Dr. Chris to us. It??s a 45 minute drive from our house, and we probably pass 15 other vets along the way, but we??ll never take Samson to anyone else.

I recommend Dr. Chris to anyone who is looking for an exceptional vet who truly cares about animals.

Thank you Gresham Animal Hospital

This place hands down is the BEST!! Dr Chris has taken care of my animals for years. He is the most caring, and honest vet I have ever seen. They DO NOT RAPE you on price either. My cat was just diagnosed with cancer and I have been doing exactly what Dr. Chris has said and he is still alive and well so far. I appreciate all Dr Chris has done. Thank You and the new building is awesome! Make sure you request Dr. Chris. I can not speak for the other doctors because I only deal with Dr. Chris!

I'm here to say that we have been bringing all of our pets to Gresham Animal Hospital long before DR, Chris. When Dr. Chris first came to Gresham Animal Hospital we liked him right away, but after he open the new hospital things started to change and not for the better. I'm very sad to say even Dr. Chris has changed. I still feel he's a very good Animal Dr. and seems to love his job by the way he conects with the animals. I do think the presure of the cost to build the new hospital has made him very greedy. I find that his staff would be better fit to work somewhere where they can be alone and not have to deal with people. I've been in there several times and have been very upset by the time I finally got out of there. They all looked busy, but doing what I'm not sure. I am sure it was not taking care of thier customers. I really hope Dr. Chris takes some time to see how they work and fires the complete staff, every one of those lazy good for nothins... I also hope that Dr. Chris remembers where he came from and retuns to earth soon before it to late and I and all I can take with me leaves for better service at another hospital. signed Very Concerned

I'll miss Dr. Chris. He came highly recommended to me from a friend. He's cool. His staff and other vets are not. Dr. Celeste has been nothing but rude and insensitive to me and my cats, refusing to run tests on one because I was low income and couldn't pay hundreds of dollars up front. Whatever happened to caring for the animals? The staff are equally as rude.
Dr. Chris is a good guy, reasonably decent Vet, but the rest of the folks under that roof leave a LOT to be desired.

Ginger's story:
First was Ginger, my beautiful red English Bulldog. She went to this place for an abdominal surgery. Four days later the stitches and all of her guts fell out. When I immediately took Ginger back to get it repaired, I clearly stated, multiple times "She has a full stomach, she just ate". Dr. Celeste gave her a Morphine mix pre-anesthetic (which often induces vomiting). As I watched....(assuming these people knew what they were doing), Dr. Celeste administered Propofol anesthesia immediately, which caused my dog to aspirate (vomit) into her lungs. Dr. Chris went ahead and did the surgical repair, then told me she had aspiration pneumonia. My girl never woke up from the anesthesia. I sat with her for 5 hours thinking she would wake up. Dr. Chris also in the room, seeming a nice man gave me antibiotics and asked to see her back in a couple of days gave me the impression she would be ok. At 11:00 PM, Dr. Chris loaded Ginger into my car and said he thought the anesthesia was taking longer to wear off because of the pneumonia. I left Gresham Animal Hospital with my beloved friend lying in my backseat, unconscious, her tongue hanging out and blood dripping from her mouth. I drove her immediately to an emergency vet hospital where they were disgusted and appalled with her condition and couldn't believe any veterinarian would send her home like that. Despite their extreme efforts (I authorized full treatment), Ginger went into cardiac arrest and died within 2 hours. The emergency vet must have faxed a summary to Gresham Animal Hospital, the next morning, Dr. Chris called to offer his condolences. At the time, I did not have enough education or knowledge to feel what Gresham Animal Hospital did was wrong. I also felt it was not Dr. Chris' fault.
Bianca's Story:
7 days later, after careful consideration and in my mind, I tried to believe Ginger's death was an error in judgement, I thought these people would take extra precautions to ensure my dogs were safe. These were the only vets I thought I could trust. I took my girl Bianca, a gorgeous white with brindle patches, Bulldog in to get a soft palate resection to help her breathe better (they just clip the soft tissue in the back of her throat). I was told the surgery would be done in the morning, so I dropped her off at 8 AM. Obviously I was nervous and by noon when I hadn't heard anything, I called. The receptionist said Bianca had her surgery and she was doing good and she would have Dr. Chris call me. Two hours later, Dr. Chris called me and said he had NOT done the surgery yet, he was going to lunch and then doing it. I called again at around 4:00 PM and Bianca was just coming out of surgery and I could come get her around 5:30 (they close at 6:00). I picked Bianca up, her breathing did sound better. Dr. Chris said she had the biggest soft palate he had seen. So, a little over an hour post-op, I took Bianca home. On the way home, she seemed to be breathing heavy, I thought she was just nervous and stressed from the day. I got her home and over the next couple of hours, her breathing got worse. I rushed her to the emergency vet (a different one from the week before). Bianca walked into the vet on a leash and was immediately taken for treatment. I thought she needed oxygen or something minor....she was walking! 15 minutes later, the vet took me to a room and said "Bianca is in cardiac arrest, what do you want us to do?" I said "Anything you can to save her". My emotions flooded my eyes, I knew she wasn't going to make it. 10 minutes later, the vet came back and said they couldn't save her. Bianca's stitches came out of her throat (a familiar story). I did not accept Dr. Chris' condolence call this time. I do not believe that lightening strikes twice. After several months, and still feeling like Gresham Animal Hospital was responsible for my girls' death, I asked Dr. Chris and Dr. Celeste for reimbursement for my expenses related to their deaths (thousands in vet bills and two dead family members) and what I paid for them. I was offered a small compensation in exchange for signing papers that I wouldn't discuss what happened, I did not accept. Dr Chris said, if I take this to court, he will have an attorney and if he loses, his insurance would pay, not him.
The seemingly nice owner of the new $1.4 million veterinary hospital may not be as he wants you to think. Two dead dogs is not acceptable. Not admitting any wrong-doing is just as bad.
I know other people that have had bad experiences with Dr. Chris and Gresham Animal Hospital.

As a child a mere 50 years ago, I lived in Sandy Oregon. My grandfather took "tina" to Gresham Animal Hospital and I fell in love with my vet. Luckily my dad continued the tradition. Then, I grew up and got a dog, a little dog, a wiener dog. I took my precious little puppy to Dr. Chris, he was very young then, as was I. He is, without a doubt, a veterinarian above all others. He greets the animals and then the owner. He sits on the floor with them and calls them "sweet nuttins" and they understand.
It is never enjoyable taking your sick, hurt, or simply to be vaccinated animal to the vet, but this is one appointment I look forward to. Dr. Chris has always gone out of his way to make sure the animals come first, and your heart a close second. You can truly see his "love" for his profession. You could not ask for a better doctor for your animal, nor a more compassionate man who understands the meaning of "Pet" and all it entails. I have three weiner dogs and a cat and they will not go elsewhere, until he moves into his new digs next door. If word of mouth is a good indicator, I give you my word, he is the BEST!

My 2 1/2 pound dog broke her leg. I was really upset when I found out that she was going to have to have surgery. I was able to talk to Dr. Chris and he was able to assure me that everything would be ok. He did her surgery and she is now healing great. I am so thankful that he was able to do her surgery and that he took such good care of her. He takes his time and I have never felt rushed. I had a million questions and he answered all of them! I live in Hillsboro and make the trip to take my dog to Dr. Chris. It is well worth it and I will not be taking her anywhere else!

I was nervous taking my indoor kitty in since he does not leave the house ever. When I arrived I was greeted with warmth and the receptionist was concerned and very attentive to my sick cat. When I met the vet she was very thou-rough and let me express my concerns. She answered all my questions and I never felt rushed. When I was leaving, the vet and the front receptionist showed me how to apply his medicine even after I had paid. Overall I would say this was a better then hoped for visit and I will keep bringing my sweet kitty here!!

We moved here recently and needed a vet... found the Gresham Animal Hospital was closest... which isn't always a good indication of the best way to shop, but we were very happy to meet Dr. Chris. My girl dog will BITE anyone who pricks her... and she nipped at him during a routine shot... and his reaction and his wonderful way of working with animals immediately had my girl kissing his face in forgiveness. She LOVES Dr. Chris, never has she had that reaction to any vet... he has a gift that is unmatched. My boy loves everyone so he isn't a great indicator... but I am amazed that my girl finally found her dream doctor.... thanks Dr. Chris!!!!

We only have experience with DR. CHRIS, he is very kind and concerned for all pets. He has always treated all our pets with so much compassion. He has even called our home to follow up and has sent a Sympathy card with written message expressing his saddness when we lost a pet.
