          In person not customer friendlyby phone they got me in the door & apparently advertised a special & though they quoted me such price & knowing that a family member had been there before they said I didn't qualify for the special b/c I was a new customer. It wasn't about the money, but principle. I won't be returning for anymore fun, but on my way to PetSmart. Thanks folks you made this decision easierjust as I dropped off the dog I actually got a call that they didn't realize she was in heat & they couldn't do the spayed & though that is not necessarily a show stopper I gladly picked up my dog. Oh, just saw another review for the first time that someone suffered a dog loss at the same vet. Good Luck!

          I can't speak to the 2 poor reviews presented here but here is my story, I had noticed that my 10 yr old west highlander dog was slowly becoming more and more lethargic and not eating. I already had a vet in columbia, sc that I had been seening for years and took the dog there. I was told it was his age and there was nothing they could do. The dog kept getting sicker and a friend told me to try Dr. Cook in sumter, sc. Boy, I could not have been more amazed ! He diagnosised the issue within 10 minutes. The dog had adrenal insufficiency, a easily treated disease. Even though I myself am a retired ENT doc I was amazed at the care At 13 yrs old he never looked better! Thanks to the caring Dr. Cook and staff I can spend a few more years with my best friend.

          I had them as a vet and decided to board my three dogs while we visited family for the holidays... a total of 5 days. We got back, picked them up, and had to put my oldest dog to sleep as soon as we got there. My youngest dog is sick and on meds and also has a callused elbow which is cracked and bleeding. I had three healthy dogs when I left and when I demanded an explanation as to why my dog was so sick that she needed to be put down, I was told that because she was an older dog and I boarded her and left that was her way of telling me that she was done. She told me it was MY FAULT that my baby died! I have contacted the state vet board about this vet and hope something is done so that this does not happen to anyone else.

          Everyone has different experiences at the Vet depending on the situation of the visit...My sister's experience has been devasting for her and the family...My sisters 19 week old Yellow Lab had been throwing up and not eating and they made an appt with Robert Cook...The Vet stated to my sister that "Lily" had Parvo and that she appeared to be at a weight where she could survive and was told it was ok to take her home...The Vet personnel gave my sister a brochure stating that dogs with Parvo have a 50% of survival and less than that when they are younger..My sister was confused with what she read but trusted the vet...My sister followed the instructions to keep Lily rehydrated...Lily died 2 days later in my sister's arms while Lily was foaming at the mouth and bleeding out of her rectum...My sister was crying to me on the phone, and i told her i could not listen to Lily crying..It haunted me and i was not even there...My sister made last ditch efforts to call vets after hours and no one was open or had vets on call...The more i read on Parvo the more disgusted i became with this vet...He never prescribed antibioctics which are needed to fight off secondary infection, which is the leading cause of death with Parvo..My sister is crushed and in hindsight had the vet recommended hospitalization she would have done it!...I do not recommend this Vet at all and i will continue to spread the word that he should not be practicing Veternarian Medicine...

          I have a 1 1/2 year old pit bull named Jenna. If it wasn't for Dr. Cook and staff; I wouldn't have her today. She lost almost 2/3's of her weight. I was going to put her down. Cook told me not yet. He never gave up. I have never seen a clinic work as hard as they did. They care, I feel it every time I go. That's really hard to come by. Everybody at Guignard Animal Clinic Thank you. If you love your pets, this is the only place to take them.

          Recently my dog was ran over by a car. Of course it was close to closing time, but when I called Guignard Animal Clinic the doctor there was very caring and concerned and waited for me to bring my animal even though it was after hours. My dog ended up having his leg amputated and even though I could not pay for the surgery up front they worked out a payment plan for me. I am forever thankful to the staff at Guignard Animal Clinic. They helped me and my pet in our time of need.

          During the last seven years we have taken our "family members" to Dr. Hawkins. I have never heard anything bad about her practice until I read the reviews on this site. On several visits we have seen Dr. Hawkins, yes, in person! My animals absolutely LOVE her and her staff. In 2005 we lost our terrier to lung cancer. I cannot express how caring Dr. Hawkins and her staff were to our grief. We received grievance cards signed from her and the staff. I feel like everyone is treated like family in her practice, even the humans. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hawkins to other pet owners.
