This is my mom's vet, but I personally go to Banfield (by Montgomery Mall) since I signed my life over to them for another year of doggie health insurance. I wasn't expecting much here especially with the small look of the place from the outside, but I must say.. I was definitely jealous after I accompanied her to get her cats treated. He molds himself to the needs of the cats, so if he encourages anyone to hold and comfort their animal, it's because THE ANIMAL IS FRIGHTENED. We weren't asked to hold or comfort any of our animals though, he comforted them and held them safely and securely for us.
As soon as my year contract is up with Banfield, I'm definitely switching to him.
The fact that he has such great evening hours really works out for me too! It'll be a long year until i can go here.
Does anyone know if this office offers health insurance of any kind?

I have been going to Dr Chi for years. First my cat and now my dog also. Those other reviews are totally wrong. I have recommended other to them and they also love them. They explain everything that is going on and take their time with your animal. Sometimes individuals are rude when dealing with other nationalities. I don't know if this is the case but I just cannot see my favorite Docs acting inappropriately as described in the other post.
Also in response to one post. I would rather hold my animal for shots or just routine examinations for my pet to feel more at ease. If you were not comfortable doing this all you have to do is say so!

I took my cat for a visit because i believed that he needed dental work. the vet took my cat by the mouth and yanked it open to show me that my cat did not need dental work, but that he had a tumor growing in his upper gums. He could not have been any more compasisonate.

This man is the lowest form of a 'vet' that exists. He was not pleasant on any level--extremely rough when handling my very gentle and friendly cat--and not in the typical 'vet just doing his job' way...they way he treated my pet, just giving him a routine shot was something totally unexpected and out of the ordinary for any vet to do. He was downright rude to my wife and I--making her hold our cat down--and getting angry with her for not understanding what he wanted her to do through his thick accent...we were practically his assistants. Clearly, this man is all about the money, because he won't hire any real ones. I took our cat there because of the reviews, and I can not stress enough that they are just not accurate--the thought of this 'man' being even a decent vet is absurd, and how he obtained reviews is unfathomable--paying people off with the money he's saving by cutting corners around the office? Writing them himself?? Who knows, just do not take your pets there.

I have been taking my cats to Dr. Lee and Dr. Chi and their staff for 3 years now, since my husband and I first moved to Cheltenham. The doctors and their assistants are friendly, knowledgeable and very caring. My cats usually don't mind going there and now associate the carrier with 'hospital' visits.
I feel better knowing that they are within 5 minutes from our home and were flexible in scheduling an emergency visit on a couple of recent occasions. I trust my cats to them and respect their recommendations.
