When I made the appointment, no one told me Dr. Kimmel sold the business. I went & they assigned me Dr.Dianne DeLorenzo. (Later I found out she purchased the business). It was supposed to be a basic annual exam. Usually I paid under $80. Dr. Kimmel clipped my dogs nails, did an annal expression & checked her out- all included in the cost of the basic exam . First, DeLorenzo kept me waiting 45 minutes Then without examing the dog, she said that he'd needed a bl00d test (?) She did a full work up (she wouldn't say why). When she did the annal expression, the dog howled like she'd been ripped in two.. When they did the bl00d test, they brought her into a tiny room & when she returned, the dog had a huge bandage on his leg. When I got the bill I couldnt believe it. Over $400. I asked DeLorenzo, but she couldnt see me cause she had a backlog of people. She whispered something to the receptionist & when she closed the door, the receptionist started yelling in my face in front of everyone (it was humilating). Some of the items on the bill were:$40 to clip the dogs nails $120 for bl00d work. $40 for annal expression (that actually damaged th dog), They gave my dog shots that I found out he didn't need, & when I removed the bandage on his leg, they ripped the vein. (I had to go to another vet to have it checked.) I wish to god I could file a complaint with the city & have her shut down. From what I saw, she is a ruthless business women padding the bill, gouging Dr. Kimmel's unsuspecting customers. When I told someone from the neighborhood, she told me Dr. DeLorenzo had just moved to the city & brought an expensive place, but on the web site it says she's been ""practicing in Greenwitch Village for 12 years"", (I never heard of her before & I'm from here) Anyway, if you have an animal that you love, or you don't feel like being ripped off- DO NOT GO TO ABINGDON SQUARE VET CLINIC! There was nothing with my dog before I went to Dr. DeLorenzo afterwards the dog was injuried.
Cons: DeLorenzo hurt my dog, overcharged me, and had her receptionist yell/humilate at me when I asked to explain the huge bill
