Finally fed up and won't be returning. I've been taking my dogs to this vet for over 2 years now and it's never been a pleasant experience. The wait is always too long and it's crowded and awkward in the waiting room because of the way the desk is positioned. The vet herself comes in for about a minute, and if you ever need to talk to her, again, the waiting. But it's close to my house and they always have an open appt so I continue to use them. I had a whole conversation with her just now through the receptionist where I was put on hold several times so she could talk to the doctor and come back and tell me what the doctor said- just put the doc on the phone if it's not something you can answer or take my number so the doc can call me back when she is available. When I told the receptionist to tell the doc I was very unhappy, and wouldn't be coming back, she said she wouldn't tell the doc that. What?? Why the heck not? My frustration this morning began when I found out that the doc denied approval to KV Vet supplies. This doc charges at least twice what KV does for prescription meds, so I wanted to order from KV obviously. The doc said that would be fine, just have them fax in the approval form. Well, they did, and the doc didn't approve it. Didn't DISSAPROVE, just didn't respond to several faxes. Very unprofessional. They finally called the vet and the vet said no. I called in to find out why and the vet said the dog needed to come back in and be re-checked to get the prescription. Why?? Not sure. They couldn't tell me. It has been over a week now, so maybe because of time passing, but time has only passed because they stalled on approving the meds. Ridiculous. I could buy my meds for them for a total of $85 for the ear wash, ear ointment and 6 months of heartworm meds, or pay $27 for the wash, ointment and 12 months of heartworm meds from KV! Also, doc wouldn't approve for the brand of heartworm that she sells in her shop because she sells it there. Um? Is that even legal? I've never had a doctor dictate where I could get my meds from and insist I buy it from the docs office. Write me a prescription and let me get my meds. RIDICULOUS.
Pros: Easy to get an appt
Cons: Dirty, won't approve outside meds, hard to work with
