Dr. Nichols saved my dogs life. I had previously had taken my dog to another vet for several years for a diagnosis of pancreatitis and she was being treated and she almost died ...

Worst

There are no words to describe how incompetent, negligent, and terminally stupid this quack Edward J. Nichols, Crestway Animal Clinic is. What he did to my cat defies description,...

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/2/2014

I have known Dr. Nichols since the 1980's. He treated my dogs & cats since starting private practice in San Antonio. He is without a doubt the most compassionate and kind hearted small animal veterinarian. He is a highly trained and consummate professional. He has gone above & beyond in caring for all of my pets over many years. I have the upmost respect for this gentleman. I noticed multiple negative reviews coming from one disgruntled source. She obviously has grief issues and it is unfortunate that her wrath has been targeted at Dr. Nichols. He is a good man and doesn't deserve slander. I am among MANY happy and appreciative clients who have entrusted their beloved pets to Dr. Nichols. He is one of the best veterinarians in the city and we are fortunate to have him. Thanks Dr. Nichols. (Dunworth-Burzlaff)\r more

I WILL REGRET THIS ALL OF MY LIFE! If you love your pet PLEASE do not go here and take a chance. If you do not take my advice and go I'm sure you will find Dr. Nichols to act so sweet and caring and you will think I'm MEAN for writing a bad review about a ""nice old man"". The truth is, I owe it to my dog to write this so other pet owners, and especially their pet's won't have to suffer like my dog did and my family has. After my dog died I finally Googled Dr. Edward Nichols and I found detailed proof and information of what Crestway Animal Clinic's nice old man did to a cat named Suki. Thankfully the owner of Suki posted ""Suki's Story"" so people can see the PROOF of how creepy he is and what he did to a poor cat! I wish I would have looked up his name before I went there! more

I WILL REGRET THIS THE REST OF MY LIFE. If you truly love and care for your pet that's probably why you chose to Google Dr. Edward Nichols to see how many ""STARS"" he has. Unfortunately I didn't have time because I needed a vet right away. PLEASE do not go here. If you do not take my advice, I'm sure you will find Dr. Nichols to be so sweet and caring, that you will think I'm MEAN for writing a bad review about a ""nice old man"". The truth is, I owe it to my dog to write this so other pet owners, and especially their pet's won't have to suffer like my dog and family has. If you have a child that needed surgery, and you Googled a surgeon that had a total of 20 reviews. Let's say 14 GOOD and 6 BAD, would you choose that surgeon, or look for another? Anyone in their right mind who loves their child would keep searching. And with social networking nowadays you can find out more about someone than just how many STARS they have on reviews. Choose a different one as you would in choosing a surgeon for your child. STARS don't mean anything. After my dog died I finally Googled Dr. Nichols. I found detailed proof and information of what Crestway Animal Clinic's nice old man did to a cat name Suki. Thankfully the owner of Suki posted ""Suki's Story"" so people can see PROOF of what he did to this poor cat. People who choose ""STARS"" could end up with a vet like Dr. Nichols, so please, if you love your pet like a kid then do your research more thoroughly. There are so many other vet's in the area. more

WORST VET - NIGHTMARE EXPERIENCE. Beware of these phony 5-star reviews of Crestway Animal Clinic and Edward J. Nichols DVM. Nichols has a webmaster attempting to manipulate what people see when they search for this hellhole clinic where only God knows how many animals have suffered and died.. Obviously he's just as stupid as Nichols if he thinks people won't find out the TRUTH the more you try to bury it. Read Suki's Story on the web. If you love your pet, AVOID CRESTWAY ANIMAL CLINIC. more

THE BEST VET DOCTOR YOU COULD EVER HAVE 12/12/2011

Dr. Nichols saved my dogs life. I had previously had taken my dog to another vet for several years for a diagnosis of pancreatitis and she was being treated and she almost died there. I finally found Dr. Nichols and he saved her life because she did not have pancreatitis.. But I found Dr. Nichols and he is the best VET doctor you could ever find. He has took care of all my dogs and they lived long healthy lives. So I recommend Dr Nichols to everyone that has an animal. Now our new puppy sees him to. He is the VERY BEST DOCTOR!!!!!! I HOPE HE NEVER RETIRES!!!! more

Dr. Nichols saved my dog's life! 4/1/2011

I came across these negative reviews of Dr. Nichols and am absolutely horrified to say the least! Dr. Nichols has been our family vet for 10+ years and he has been amazing! I have a Yorkie and about 4 years ago he ate a large seed/spore from a tree. This caused him to become very sick and almost die. After finding the problem, Dr. Nichols preformed surgery to remove the seed/spore and saved my pup's life. He is a wonderful vet and surgeon and this person who is saying otherwise has major issues. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a vet. I will continue to take my animals to Dr. Nichols for as long as he is around!! more

WORST VET EVER - AVOID THIS QUACK 3/15/2011

There are no words to describe how incompetent, negligent, and terminally stupid this quack Edward J. Nichols, Crestway Animal Clinic is. What he did to my cat defies description, performing unauthorized and dangerous surgery on her under anesthesia without my knowledge or consent, and then leaving her in a cage to die while never once notifying me. I got her to FOUR OTHER VETS who tried to save her but it was too late. She died a horrible death. Nichols has been under investigation by the state board of Texas but slimed his way out of it, and then came after me with bottom-feeding lawyers to try to get a permanent injunction to silence me from telling Suki's Story. HE FAILED TO DO SO, and I will tell her story forever. Three expert opinions put in writing how many ways this QUACK breached the standard of care. These phony 5 star reviews are from family and friends (e.g. Saenz is an in-law). I cannot overstress this enough: AVOID THIS VET. He is a living, breathing nightmare who should retire already. I pray every day he rots in hell for what he did to Suki. I proudly sign my name, as I have exposed this freak for 12 years and will continue to do so -- Julie Catalano, The Veterinary Abuse Network. more

Top Vet. in S.A.! 2/25/2011

We've been to several veterinarians in San Antonio and Dr. Nichols and his assistants are the best! Our pets have had some difficulties in the past and Dr. Nichols has been of great help in caring for them. We recommend him highly. more

Worst Vet in San Antonio! 1/29/2011

Have you seen vetabusenetwork dot com ? I sure wouldn't be taking my pet to Crestway Animal Clinic. What a nightmare experience. AVOID this vet like the plague! more

Best vet in the world!! 8/9/2010

I have been going to Dr. Nichols since he started practicing in the early 1980s. I trust him completey with all of my animals. He treats each one as if the cat or dog is his own pet. He treats each client as if you are his dear friend. He is one of the most compassionate people I know and truly loves the animals he works with. His practice is still run ""the old fashioned"" way. The environment is friendly and not sterile. The staff is great. I would recommend him to anyone in and around the SA area and beyond. It will be worth the drive!! more

If anyone can save a cat, Dr. Nichols can!!! 8/4/2010

Dr. Nichols has been my vet for the last 20 years, first at Northwood and then when he purchased Crestway. more

OUR VET FOR 25 YEARS AND WE LOVE HIM! 3/22/2009

Dr. Ed Nichols has been our family vet for more than 20 pets over the last 25 years. He has a double science background and a very good petside manner with both people and pets. He always has no less than 4 rescued stray cats lounging around the office because he is so soft hearted. Furthermore, he doesn't order unnecessary tests to pad his bill, and push for extras that you really don't need. He is professional, reasonable and smart. I have never had a single complaint about his care or his office and have grown to think of Dr. Nichols as a good friend to our family over the years. I would recommend him ( and have) to anyone. Pros: Dr. Nichols is wonderful more

Great Vet! 8/25/2008

Dr. Nichols has treated the dogs and cats for many family members, for many years now. He is kind, competent, thorough, and compassionate. It is obvious that any animal suffering touches him. He has always provided excellent care, so much so that I drive nearly an hour to take my cat to him. Pros: Waiting room is pleasant and never crowded; they will always make time for an emergency appointment Cons: None that I have seen. more

DR NICHOLS CRESTWAY ANIMAL CLINIC 4/6/2008

i came back to San Antonio and needed to take my dog to Dr. Nichols and see his hours and found this negative write up about him...I am so surprized that a person could be so wrong about a person. I have been using Dr Nichols well over 13 years even before I came to San Antonio. He has been the best. When my first dog was poisoned by a neighbor Dr Nichols went so far to save him and I cound see the pain and anguish in his eye thru this whole ordeal. Since he has cared for all my animals and is the best in love and car for all of them. I have left San Antonio and come back several times and always have gone to him for his kindness. This doctor even when I had no money has treated my animals and his primary care is the health and welfare of all the animals even when he cannot collect payment for his services. To accuse such a kind and personal doctor of abuse is beyond me and in my heart I feel it to be so very false. Such defamation is not only hurting a great doctor but the animals he cares for as well. It is not every day that you will find the medical care of a doctor for human or animal alike that will put himself out and the animal first and not turn them away for lack of payment. He has even rescued animals of abouse and personally taken it upon himself for their medical attention, their nutrition and housing needs as well. People I implore you to go to this doctor with your pet, you will see for yourself and trust in your heart that your naimal could not be in better care elsewhere. My heart goes out to Dr. Nichols for his humanitarian beliefs, I pray such horrible and negative people never change him with the excellent service he renders. Joi J. Biddle Pros: He will never turn away an animal for lack of payment. He and staff are so amicable. Cons: I cannot think of anything worng with this clinic, it's staff and Dr. Nichols kind heart. more

Dr. Nichols 5/10/2007

I've been using Dr. Nichols for well over 10 years now and he has seen/treated 5 dogs and 3 cats of mine over the years and not ONCE did I see anything remotely like the previous user posted. Dr. Nichols and his staff have been nothing but kind, considerate, caring, understanding, professional and even grieved with my wife and I when we had to retire our ""Old Man"" (a 16 year old Spitz/Chow mix that had severe arthritis and other problems). This clinic does not see exotic animals, but when my wifes Iguana (Ellie) passed away, Dr. Nichols staff took care of the cremation and even mailed her a sympathy card. My wife & I recommend this clinic for standard animal (cat/dog) care & will continue to call him our Vet for a while to come. Pros: friendly staff Cons: small parking lot more

This vet should be in jail for animal abuse 4/8/2007

This vet abuses and intentionally causes his so-called patients to die. Do NOT bring a sick animal to this vet. He will abuse and intentionally causes death in the animal while charging you for ""treatments"" you never authorized. Some of this vet's former clients are suing him, but he is counter-suing to shut them up. This vet should have lost his license to practice veterinary medicine a long time ago. This vet is a MONSTER who should not be allowed near animals or people. Pros: None. Cons: Should lose his license and be in jail. more
