Dr. Reed and his staff are wonderful! He has been seeing our Boxer since we got her 5 years ago and could not be more pleased with the personal service and excellent medical care he provides. His staff is kind and accomodating and always willing to go the extra mile for us. Highly recommended!

My fiance and I are very upset about the treatment plan for our cat, who has experienced chronic ear infections since our very first visit back in September 2012. We thought the reviews of BAH were exceptional and we were extremely surprised at the LACK OF CARE we received.

I can not speak for any of the vets other than our experience with Dr. Mitchell. At our first new client - routine exam she was very nice (and wanting to keep out business). Then when we had to go back for an ear infection, things started to turn nasty...She put our cat on (the expensive) Hypoallergenic Food diet to rule out food allergy and then ACCUSED US of being bad and negligent pet owners when his ear inflections persisted. She never did a thorough ear exam/cleaning with flushing, nor did she ever check his ear drum, OR mention the possibility of a middle ear infection OR discuss the possibility of a polyp. (I'm beginning to think she doesn't even know what a polyp is?!) We kept receiving the same treatment plan...antibiotics, drops, and follow up in two weeks. After two weeks from the end of treatment the infection would return. On top of all of our worry about his ear infections, BAH was only concerned with us bringing a stool sample for his parasite check ($50), which was NOT necessary 2x a year (we just had it done in Sept).

After a very expensive and frustrating 5 months of failed treatment (2 medicines each trip, paying for office visits AND the subsequent 2 week follow up visits, and the food, and the ear cleaner) we sought out a second opinion. Within 15 minutes of our appt the new vet diagnosed him with an ear polyp, and referred us for an immediate surgical consult. He just came out of surgery, which was described as a successful removal of the problem causing polyp. Hopefully our cat will recover and heal with the help of his NEW, kind, and caring, surgeons and primary veterinary care, which will not be at Bakerstown.

Additionally, the technicians and front office staff are more helpful than the actual vet.

Plain & simple:

If you want the best care for your animal, if you treat your pet like a member of the family & believe they deserve to be in the most capable hands - go see the Drs. at Bakerstown Animal Hospital.

I wish I could give them more stars. I've been going to Bakerstown for over 14 years and The Drs. here are incredible. They genuinely care about the health of your pet.

I've been going to this vet for years, but am going to switch. They have become so profit-focused I can barely afford my animals any longer. The worst of it is if you don't agree to their recommendations they make you feel as if you're a bad owner. Their first line of diagnosis is to run every test under the sun. They don't even give the option of conservative treatment first then a more aggressive approach if that doesn't work. Go to All-Pet - I called for a cost comparison & they're much less expensive.

The Doctors, Vet Tech's and Receptionist are wonderful at BAH! They are all so friendly, polite, and concerned about your pet's health. I have taken my pets to other animal hospitals, but BAH has been the best. BAH is a wonderful Pet Hospital, and the doctors and staff take wonderful care of pets. Definately a five star rating.

We've taken our cats to Bakerstown Animal Hospital for over a year now. From the beginning we were surprised by the high fees. Each time we went in, they told us they had done a senior wellness test on our cat(s) after the fact. This is a very expensive procedure and we've yet to see the results for any of them. We finally called a different vet that can actually come out to our house for HALF the price. Seriously, we would pay anything for our babies, but not if we're not getting results.
We've always liked the staff at Bakerstown, but the Vets themselves are more "salesman-like" than they should be. All the expensive gadgets in their office are unneeded and that's what you're really paying for.

I have been going to Dr. Reed since 1985 with my first dog. When he started his own practice, I followed him there because of the caring, compassionate and most importantly excellent medical care he gave my dog after a front leg fracture. He helped me thru a very difficult time when my dog developed insulinoma and subsequently died from this disease. He referred me to a specialty animal hospital on Rt. 8 after her diganosis was confirmed by lab tests. I have since gotten another dog, and unfortunately she has had many dental extractions due to dental decay. He ALWAYS takes good care of my pets, and this time was no exception. Even though leaving her for surgery is very stressful, I can say that I know she is in good hands with Dr. Reed. As for the previous rating of high rates, I would much rather pay the cost of excellent veterinary care and entrust my pet to a knowledgable vet than pay lower rates for second rate care. I cannot praise Dr. Reed and Bakerstown Animal Hospital enough.

I have taken my 2 cats to Dr. Reed and Dr. Mitchell for 9 years. The entire office staff is wonderful. Everyone is caring, compassionate and my cats have always received excellent care. My older cat is in kidney failure and they have worked with me in doing what is best for her and never pushing additional services or procedures. Dr. Reed and Dr. Mitchell are highly recommended!

My husband used this vet before we were married so we've continued to go for the last 8 years. That trend ended yesterday.... I have always felt that the fees were too high
. The doctor asked my husband if he wanted her to apply a bandage to my dog's injury and he said yes...Assuming that was part of the $61 office visit. She never mentioned the $37 additional fee associated with doing her job! My dog had a simple cut on his foot...no shots, stitches, xrays were required yet the bill was $189. The two scripts were EXACTLY double what 1800pedmeds.com charges. The office visit is $20 higher than the going rate and the ridiculous fee to apply a bandage is inexcusable (it was a piece of stretchy gauze secured by medical tape and my dog was very calm and cooperative)

Our bird was very sick and needed to see a vet quickly. Bakerstown made room for us that day, which we really appreciated, especially since they were not our regular vet. The staff was very caring and professional. The waiting room, while brightly lit and clean, was a little crowded. We were seen fairly promptly, especially for habing never been here before. This place is somewhat out of the way for us but I would go back again if I had another emergency.

We took the dog I grew up with here. They are wonderful people and truly treat their patients as real family members. We recently got a new dog and she goes there as well; she is more timid and they take care to be very gentle with her and always calm her. I would highly recommend them to anyone with pets that they care deeply about.
