Dr. Bruce has not only changed my cat??s life but mine as well. Olivia was very ill and after navigating the circuit of high end veterinary practices in Manhattan not only did she not appear to be getting better but her condition was worsening. I fortunately found Dr. Lowenstein through a very intelligent pet owner/neighbor and called him immediately. He was patient and personable on the phone as I explained Olivia??s fragile condition. I began the process of switching her records over to him as soon as possible.
At first I couldn??t believe that a veterinarian would make a house call in this day and age but that is just one aspect that makes Dr. Bruce??s practice so wonderful. The process of placing a NYC house cat who is not well into a carrier and out onto the noisy streets of the city is traumatic for both cat and owner. Thanks to Dr. Bruce neither Olivia nor I will ever have to go through that process again!
Congenial Dr. Bruce showed up as soon as possible to help my Livvy. He has a way of speaking to Olivia that puts her at ease. Before she was terrified of strangers but now even after he examines her, draws blood, weighs her and/or does the other necessary medical things that cats and humans dislike having done, Livvy walks right up to him as if he were an old friend rather than a doctor. Immediately, Dr. Bruce was able to make a complete and accurate diagnosis, removing the unnecessary medicines Olivia was on and providing her with exactly what she needed. She is happy, calm and doing much healthier thanks to Dr. Bruce.
Dr. Bruce is a true gem, a doctor who obviously treats the pet for the pet??s sake, not to line his pockets with cash. His pricing is very reasonable, an unexpected yet welcome plus. In fact I am sure that the cost of treating my cat is less due to his pricing and the savings from eliminating cab fare to and from the vet I had previously been using. Dr. Bruce is available 24/7, something I wish all doctors would do! And he spends time with me and my pet, more time than any ??traditional office vet?? ever has. He is methodical in examining Livvy all while talking her sweetly through the process (as if she understands, and maybe she does?), and then explaining to me, in detail what is going on, how she??s doing, what needs to be done and when I will receive test results. He promptly returns calls, answers questions and is absolutely trustworthy; everything I could ask for in the physician responsible for my beloved pet??s health. I seriously doubt Olivia would be alive today if not for Dr. Bruce and his amazing ability to diagnose and treat her rather complicated condition with accuracy and compassion.
Thanks Dr. Bruce Lowenstein for making my cat and me happy!
