BEST FACILITY IN TOWN 5/9/2011

We have taken all of our various Scottie dogs to Rose City Veterinary for close to twenty years and have found the care, the facilities, and the staff to be among the best in Portland. We suggest you access their kennel web cam so you can see pets during boarding. Also, the building itself is a gorgeous remake of the much older and rundown clinic it replaced. The medical lab is one of the best in the state and we have always gotten quick and accurate diagnosis and prescriptions with same day service. Great people! more

Gone Downhill, Expensive and Unauthorized Charges 5/21/2010

I began taking my three animals to Rose City Vet about six years ago. Although the doctors' exams were somewhat rushed, I was generally satisfied with the service and care received. Things went markedly downhill last year. After an annual wellness exam, the price quoted to me at the register seemed high and I asked for a printout. The doctor had pre-charged me for a fecal test (about $40), which I was supposed to bring in later. I requested the charge be removed and that I be billed at the time of sample drop-off. I asked that a note be included in my file for a printout prior to payment at every visit. (The fact this was not customary procedure should have been a red flag for me earlier.) This happened again during a subsequent visit when the doctor pre-charged me a comparable fee for a urine sample. In both cases, I was never told by the doctor or office staff that the charge was being added to the bill. Fortunately I had the statement to review and asked that it be removed. I often wonder how many other untold charges were included in previous bills that I paid in good faith based on the doctor's instructions. more

Inappropriate services and expensive 3/26/2010

I brought my two cats for wellness exam. The vet reported the results of exams quite well via the phone. These seemed pretty nice. But the price were very expensive!!! Pros: The examination service seems nice and sympthetic vet. Cons: The communication after examination were incomplete. more

Great vet 2/17/2010

This is a wonderful vet. I've worked with Dr. Quirk and Dr. Berger, and both are kind, love animals, and are pleasure to work with. They have a beautiful office with friendly staff, free drinks and snacks for customers (2 and 4 legged) and even the dogs love going there! more

Great atmosphere 11/25/2009

I've been taking my cat here (he is over a year old now) since he was a baby, and I haven't had any bad experiences. He was neutered there, and I felt very comfortable leaving him there while I was at work. The front desk staff is very friendly, and the very first doctor I worked with (Can't remember her name) was the nicest lady ever. I think she is quite possibly even more friendly than my OWN doctor! Pros: Complimentary beverages, comfortable waiting room & exam roo Cons: $$$ more

Bad service and unnecessary exams 9/15/2009

I have been going to Rose City for over a decade. I have loved their services and all the staff until this past 18 months. There has been turn over of the front desk staff and they are no longer able to read a record on the computer, find a chart, or provide the most basic functions. I have sat for 15 minutes with an elderly cat while they tried to find my chart, then had to goto the front desk and demand my cat back as they left me waiting for her for over 15 in the exam room. Pros: They used to be the best in town. Cons: They no longer care about much of anything more

Great people 5/20/2009

We take our 2 pugs to see Dr. Quirk who we are told is a "pug" specialist. He's great, the staff is kind and courteous. Seems to be a bit expensive, but I know my animals are in good hands with them. more

Best Boarding in the City 11/14/2008

I have used the boarding service for my two scottish terriers for several years now. I have never had a problem with the service. I always paid what I expected to pay. The staff has been upfront, proffessional, and courteous to me. Most importantly, my dogs got service in facilities that are clean. The kennel webcam feature is very innoviative. The thing I would say is that Rose City Vet Boarding Service cares for my dogs with the same level of detail that I provide. Pros: The best facilities Cons: not the low cost provider but you do get what you pay for in this case. more

They have always been a back up hospital for us 8/12/2008

The stay is very caring and kind and I am comfortable with my animals there. i have personally known a number of the staff who work there and i believe they treat my animals the same way they would treat their own animals. more

Good Service 4/11/2008

I like the vet at this clinic and she seems very thorough. They have a play room for children in their waiting area.They are on the expensive side. It's easy to get an appointment. They have a good selection of pet food and treats in the waiting area. The doctor was very clear in her explanation of treatments and my options. more

EXCELLENT, empathetic vet 2/23/2008

dr. quirk has been seeing my dog zoe for a few years now, and tolerates my nervous-dog-mom moments so well, with compassion and care. upon moving to portland, i shopped 5-6 different vets, and wouldn't ever dream of taking zoe elsewhere. i'm SO glad my friends referred us to rose city vet - the entire staff has been super-attentive and responsible, the office is lovely (coffee, soda, and COOKIES (for both people and dogs)) and the docs great. hands-down the best vet experience i've ever had in years of pet ownership. Pros: staff, doctors, office, everything. Cons: can't think of one. more

Excellent veterinary clinic that I highly recommend 2/20/2008

I did a lot of research to find a great vet in the Portland area for my new dog. Dr. Lisa Berger is a fantastic vet who is so incredibly thorough! She takes all the time that we need to go over questions and she couldn't be sweeter with my dog. The waiting time at the office is minimal - I don't think I've waited to see the doctor for more than 5 minutes! Pros: Easy parking, superior service, very little waiting time, beautiful facility, boarding Cons: None that I can think of more

Terrible admin staff and customer service 1/4/2008

We boarded our pet with Rose City Vets recently and everything was clean and friendly and I'm sure our pet received great care but when I first called they told us one price and then when I made the reservation it was another, higher price. Pros: Clean, friendly, animals seem well taken care of Cons: Administration process needs an overhall more

Great vet care and reasonably priced 10/15/2006

Dr Quick is thorough, professional and relatively conservative in his care. I expected to have a ton of recommended services and labs when I took my 7 year old cat for a checkup, but he did a thorough examination, found her in good health, and put her on a 3-year rotation for her vaccinations, which I thought was excellent since she is an indoor-only cat who is never exposed to anything other than our household. When I later had to bring her in urgently, it was easy to make an appointment, and they even have Saturday hours. The bill both times was quite reasonable. The clinic itself is beautiful. My only complaint is that it would be better if there were separate cat & dog entrances--my cat got pretty terrified of all the dogs coming in. Other than that, I'm very satisfied. Pros: Quality care, reasonable prices, nice clinic Cons: No separate cat/dog entrances more
