Brian Weitzman and his staff are the most knowledgable in the state that I have ever encountered. It is difficult to give anyone a total over the phone when they have never treated the pet. So not too sure where that person is even coming from.
With that being said, I have taken over possibly 50 animals or more, to him and his staff. Over the past 10 years, we have personally 3-4 dogs, but constatntly find dumped off dogs and take them to his care. Everything from surgeries, to helping us find homes to more services, this vet is the best we have seen in many years. We would always recommend him and his staff and we travel as well. We do not even go near the vet in one of the places we visit, so we have experienced many a bad vet and several good vets. Brian is caring, and concerned about your animals, and so is the staff. I would always recommend this clinic, they are humble and work the best for your animal, and pet.

Dr. Brian Weitzman and his staff are exceptional caregivers. We have had many pets to this office in the past 6 years and have never been disappointed. From chronic ear issues, emergency surgery, routine spay and neutering, and regular vaccinations we always come to SMLAH for care we trust. The prices are reasonable and have always been outlined in advance with any incidental extra costs also explained prior to the procedures. My pets travel with me and I have been to many other veterinarians in many states and none of them can hold a candle to our SMLAH experience. I can't say enough how much trust we have in this establishment. I will never hesitate to recommend these veterinary professionals to anyone.

Pros: Friendly, energetic, caring, knowledgable staff

I called to make an appointment for my 14 year old sheltie because she was leaking on my floor. I know she has incontinence and asked the person making the appointment what I needed to have done to get her back on Proin (which she was on previously). I was told they could check it with a $21 urine analysis and know whether it was incontinence or a UTI. When we took her in, they decided they were not going to give us anything until we had an analysis & a complete panel done ($81 total, quite a difference from what I was told on the phone). I had just paid for this to check her kidneys & liver less then 4 months ago and felt that should be sufficient enough...who has extra money laying around to keep paying for stuff over and over? I asked why I was not told this when making the appointment and the vet (a woman) had the nerve to say "Well, you didn't talk to a vet". I feel that their staff should be trained enough to be able to answer questions, or at least say you need to speak with a vet. Needless to say, we spent almost $100 there and still walked out without ANY medication for my dogs incontinence and are now back at square one. I asked if there was anything over the counter that we could try and was told there is nothing over the counter. After searching the internet, we found Homeopet Leaks No More (OTC) and have decided to try this before returning to a DIFFERENT VET. I do NOT recommend this vet as I feel they are out for the extra money instead of finding cost effective ways to help solve the problem

Cons: Will tell you one thing on the phone and expect you to pay for extra stuff when you get there
