I recently went to EYVC to check them out for boarding purposes. Not Good!! The kennels were dirty and it didn't seem as though they had enough staff to take care of the animals that were there. Also, even though the staff were very pleasant to me, it seemed to me that they were all very unhappy and stressed out. The phones were ringing and there were clients standing around waiting to be checked out. The place is obviously understaffed, so for me, I don't think EYVC is a good fit for me or my dog. My dog is like a child to me and I would not feel comfortable leaving him there.

We take all comments seriously. We researched this case and found that the last time we saw Ms. Freed in our office was 2.5 years ago and a full 6 years since her one and ONLY contact with Dr. Miller. We wonder why now, after one telephone meeting 6 years ago, Ms. Freed decided to write such misleading and unkind remarks about Dr. Miller and our practice. One of our goals is to help our clients make informed decisions about their pets welfare. From our notes on this case, that is what we did. In 2006, Dr. Miller called this owner to offer 2 tests upon discovering a heart condition while her cat was in the hospital for examination. These tests were declined, which of course, is the owners right to decide. We only saw the pet a few times over the years, and despite several significant health conditions, we are very happy her pet got to live close to 18 years, also a tribute to Ms. Freeds loving care of her pet. Thank you.

How this place received so many positive reviews is just beyond me. I had written an extensive negative review, but it seems to have mysteriously vanished from the list.

I took my cats to East York Vet for many years. There were several vets there I liked, but as soon as I would get to know a vet they would leave the practice. I still stayed with East York Vet's office because they were more thorough then my previous vet. Then my oldest cat had to stay overnight with what turned out to be a urinary tract infection. Dr. Miller wanted to do multiple other expensive tests (like a thyroid test), and she stressed ??because of her age?, not because of her current problem. She wanted to do these tests even though I knew my cat did not have any of those problems. I had a deep connection with this cat and KNEW when something was wrong. That was our relationship ?? she was part of my family and my friends had said my cat was like my child. I refused to allow the multiple expensive tests and that was the end of the discussion. My cat came home with medication and got over her bladder infection and all was well.

Years later the same cat was diagnosed with kidney disease. After the shock set in I realized maybe that was why my cat had urinary problems on and off through part of her life. She was put on five medications, but no info was given about what each one does (aside from the Pepcid AC, which we bought elsewhere), so I found out later during my own research that certain ones needed to be given at least an hour apart. I bought three of the medications regularly at East York Vet, but then one skyrocketed in price for $13 to around $32. I had asked before if that medicine was the same one that could be bought in the drug store, but was told there might be some differences. Even though I was sure this wasn??t true, I continued buying from East York Vet just in case. After the price jumped I insisted on a real answer, and thankfully a young vet was able to tell me, and even show me, that the bottle was indeed the same over-the-counter medicine I could buy elsewhere for much cheaper. That was the last straw. I decided right then I was going to switch vets. Unfortunately, before officially changing vets, my cat went downhill and it was time (she was 17 and a half).

Perhaps the staff and doctors have changed, but my problems with the place were greed, constantly waiting (even to pay the bill), under-quoted estimates (one time the difference was over $100), and Dr. Miller herself. I chose that office, even though the prices were higher, because I liked the place, but their prices became a bit ridiculous after the expansion, and Dr. Miller pushed for unnecessary tests. I liked several of the vets who were once there, but the few times I had an appointment with Dr. Miller were enough for me to request another doctor. Just because she volunteers at the SPCA does not make her a good person ?? it just means she has the time to do it and it makes her look good to society. I now have a vet practice that I like in a small office in Lebanon, (where I now live), and they don??t make me wait forever or overcharge me. My last trip to East York Vet was to pick up my cat??s ashes, and I will never be back.

Dr. Miller and staff are absolutely amazing at making sure my poodle ""Sally"" is well taken care of. I have been coming to East York for the past year and can honestly say I will be coming here for years and years to come. My best friend deserves nothing but the best care and they provide just that.\n

This is by far the worst place to take your pet. I took my older dog here and months later the problem is still not fixed. They put her on numerous medicines which none helped. Then when I asked them what else could be done they didnt know!!! I immediately called another vet and he now has her under control within 1 visit. He even stated that the xrays were horrible and there was no reason to have her on all of those medicines. All they want is your money. STAY AWAY!!!!

One year ago, this review site gave EYVC an average of 2 stars. Those reviews strangely disappeared to be replaced with comments by EYVC??s business manager, associates and friends. The business manager actually solicits advice from clients regarding how to run the business better. For starters, read the negative reviews. You are in the business of running a successful concern, not your clients. Doctor, heal thyself.

One common talking point the owner and friends keep hammering at is how EYVC takes care of SPCA animals for free. Well, while it may be a nice thing to do, like the pretentious amenities in the waiting room, it is not free. The funds to do so do not come out of the owner??s pocket, but from profits.

There are many reasons not to patronize this business, ranging from poor treatment of employees, to exceptionally high fees compared to what other veterinarians in the area charge. But the punch line is do you really want your pets cared for by a hospital defined by such incompetence? The owner and friends bash the negative reviews by writing them off as having been written by numerous disgruntled employees, which all by itself, is no defense at all as it indicates how poor the management is.

EYVC, I am not an ex-employee, but am an ex-client who became tired of remarkably high bills for ordinary procedures. Also, the fees quoted rarely matched the final bill. And the ever increasing sloppy and defensive management style indicates this behavior may also reflect on the kind of care my pets were receiving. Don??t take a chance on your pet??s health and find a less controversial vet as I have.

I don't know what is wrong there, but every time I go in, there is a difference receptionist working. They don't seen be able to retain anyone for very long. They change vets way too often. I like to see the same doctor each time I take my pet in, but by the time I get to know one, they leave. They don't return calls, and when you do go in they make you wait unreasonable times to get waited on. I'm going somewhere else.

Last year we decided to get a dog. Her name is Dodie. EYVC was close in distance and I figured vets are all the same, so it didn't matter where we take the dog. I quickly learned not all offices are the same! From the outside, it's just another building, but inside is warm and comfortable. sense of warmth. It's warm and friendly inside as well as out. No terrible odors like most places and it's clean. The people are exceptionally nice to you and your pet. We even take Dodie there while were on vacation. Our dog is afraid of everything. New places and new people make her nervous. However, she's very relaxed from the time we arrive until the time we leave. It's easy to see how happy she is. That's the true test for us.
