Very caring vet, great bedside manner with my very sick cat 10/21/2011

After hearing bluntly with limited information, after a very brief exam from our previous vet, that my cat had lymphoma, I wanted a second opinion. I opted to see Dr. Drake based on a few recommendations from other friends. Dr Drake was very thorough and took time to talk me through possibilities and next steps. We went ahead with an ultrasound, and unfortunately confirmed that my cat has a metastatic cancer. His bedside manner/ approach to discussing this disappointing diagnosis and my cat's condition was warm and caring. He gave me options that the other vet never mentioned, and made me feel very comfortable in this difficult situation. Most importantly, my cat - who is very picky about the people he chooses to like/ let handle him - was perfectly calm with Dr. Drake and his entire staff. I will continue to take my cats to him and his practice. more

Way over priced! 8/9/2011

This vet is way to expensive, from office visits, to medications. Some of the staff girls are okay, and some are rude and uncaring. Pet went in for a simple problem, and WHOA, the bill was a few hundred dolllars! Would NOT recommened this place to friends and family AT ALL! Other affordable vets out there. more

Kindness like no other!! 3/25/2011

You know I have seen some of the reviews of the people that complain about how expensive Drake is, I thought that too. Before we had a tragic accident and lost our beloved family member Buddy. I am not sure how theses people feel about their family but we LOVED Buddy and to get the kind of care that we felt that he deserved we were willing to pay for it. I would NEVER tell my child that we couldnt afford proper care for him. NOT MATTER WHAT! We dont have a lot of money but that never matters when you have to take care of someone that loves you no matter what. We took Buddy into them to be cremated and they let us take as long as we needed to say goodbye to him. They were very kind and careing to us in our time of loss. Even a few days later we got a card in the mail that the staff had signed telling us how sorry they were for our loss. The place that cremated Buddy sent him back to us in a beautiful urn inside a velvet monigramed bag with a ""B"" on it. Along with a little note and a poem from Buddy to us. This type of kindness is hard to find in a people doctors office! I will never forget the kindness they have shown us and will tell everyone to take their loved ones to them. Thank You Dr. Drake and all your staff ! more

Best Vet Ever! 11/15/2010

Dr. Drake is the best! My dogs love him and his staff. When our family lost one pet to cancer and the other to old age they were kind, compassionate and did all that they could to make it easy on us and our pets. I would never go anywhere else! more

Dr. Drake is great! 8/23/2010

I have been taking my dog to Dr. Drake for 10 years. She is now 13 years old. He has been great. I trust him completely. more

never again 1/15/2010

i took my dog to get vaccinated and ended up paying over a hundred dollars. when i called to make the appointment they told me i had to either bring in a stool sample or they would wait for him to go, so i brought it in., which i didn't really understand what that had to do with vaccines. when i got there, they kept trying to do other things to the dog and i kept saying no, i just want to get him vaccinated. about 4 months later i got a bill in the mail that said i owed 28 dollars...with no explanation why, just that i owed them money....when i called they told me that it was for the stool sample. and the lady tried to tell me that i had an option to pay at the time, i told her no, i would have payed it, i mean why pay 105 bucks at the time and then wait for the next 28? thats ridiculous anyway, i wouldn't recommend this place even to my enemy Pros: friendly to your face Cons: extrra charges, try to squeeze money out of you dnmrew32phju more

No longer want Drake 10/22/2009

I started going to Dr. Drake when he had the converted house (before the new building pictured here) and the prices were always reasonable and my dogs were treated very well. Since the new building, however, the prices keep going up and up and up and they always wanted me to schedule more appointments to get medication for a pre-existing conditon. I complained about it so they stopped charging me but it just should not have happened to begin with. Pros: My dogs are always treated well & love to go Cons: The new vet is horrible and the keep raising their prices more

added expenses 9/15/2009

I have been taking my dog there for the past year for an ongoing life long condtion he has. I was told to come back every 6 months for a check up. Then, everytime I call for a perscription re-fill I am told the Doctor wont refill it until my dog comes in for a checkup. Every 6 months turned into every 2 months. There are always extra charges I almost always leave a ""checkup"" spending $150+. I am beginning to feel like they are trying to squeeze money out of me. Not a good feeling. I will be going back to my previous vet. Only started going to Drake because they could get me in faster than my previous vet. While the staff is very friendly, I can't allow myself to feel like I am being taken advantage of. Pros: Able to get appointments quickly Cons: Always costs way more than you expect more

Awful 7/7/2009

This is one of the worst vets I have ever been to - the staff is friendly, but once they have your animal, they look for any excuse to schedule multiple visits, a slew of tests, and once they're convinced that they have the right opinion about an issue your animal is having, they won't listen to reason. I didn't have an animal almost die like Suzydido, but I have been fighting them for the better half of 6 months to prescribe a standard medication for one of my animals - and it's only after several rounds of visits (money) and tests (more money) that they are willing to concede that I was right in the first place. I wouldn't recommend this place to my family or friends. Pros: Friendly staff, Clean Facility Cons: Expensive, Bad Diagnosis more

best vet EVER 11/14/2008

dr. drake is the best vet in town! i worked for him for years (and worked for many others around town) and he is the most ethical, educated, and talented vet you'll find. hands down. i still drive across the world to take my girls to him. i trust him and his staff completely. Pros: everything Cons: dr. drake should clone himself and move to south austin, too! more

WORST VET EVER 11/12/2008

We took our dog in for 3 days in a row to this vet, and even asked the vet if our dog had Parvo (life-threatening disease) multiple times. The vet said no and wouldn?t even test him. His diagnosis was the she might have worms. Our dog didn?t eat or drink for 4 days, and then when we called on Saturday they said to wait until Monday because they were about to close. You can?t not drink or eat for 7 days!!! Our dog would have died!!! We took our dog to another vet, and she was diagnosed with Parvo in less than 10 minutes. This vet even wrote us a letter after the fact that we told him he misdiagnosed our dog and he would have died if we would have waited until Monday, just because he thought we were going to take him to court. Turns out, this has happened before, we talked with another pet owner who?s dog had a heart murmur, and the vet didn?t know what it was, but sure took their money time after time, and then once they took it to another vet it was diagnosed in 10 minutes. This vet doesn?t know anything about any serious conditions. He gave us oral medication for our dog when it was throwing up every 20 minutes?obviously she was just throwing up the medicine, but they wouldn?t give us anything else. Horrible vet!!! Staff is so super nice, but the vet knows nothing about serious issues!! more

Very kind and accommodating! 12/18/2007

Awesome vet staff. That, to me, is just as important as the Vet himself. They are very nice and always accommodating. I would highly reccommend this office. more

Loving Staff 3/7/2006

I have been going to Dr. Drake for about five years now. He saved our dog's life! His staff loves animals and they show it. I feel very confident in Dr. Drake and his staff. I have no human children, my pets are my kids and Dr. Drake & staff treat them with love. Dr. Drake will always be the one that cares for my kids. more

Great Vet! 3/27/2005

I have found Dr. Drakes office to be one of the best vets that I have been to in a long time. I have a nasty habbit of running late to the vet, granted the Cats have a large part to play in that, and they are always courteous and willing to work me into their schedule, time permitting. They are always willing help me with pet problems and they always give me great advise. I would recommend Dr. Drake to everyone in Round Rock. He may be a little bit higher, but he is well worth it. more
