San Joaquin is the Greatest. They have such a great attitude and go out of their way to make my little friends as happy as possible.

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/22/2013

I took little one in to Dr.Alfaro. I must say I thought they would tell me to put her down but Dr. Alfaro was in no way going in that direction. She checked with other doctors to see if anyone knew of such problems with any other dogs. She treated Little one and she is much better. Dr. Alfaro makes my dog very comfortable. I think she's a great Vet and her staff was nothing but kind and polite when we were in the office. Great place to take your animals in my opinion. more

I recommend Dr. Alfaro, but the staff is not terribly nice.. 12/1/2011

I have been taking my animals to San Joaquin Veterinary for about 20 years now. Dr. Alfaro joined the hospital maybe 5 years ago? Anyways, I find her to be very knowledgeable and friendly. She has been very kind when we lost one of our pets recently. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I would rate her at 5 stars, and Dr. Stocks at 4 (hes a bit gruff-but good). That being said, the staff at San Joaquin has really slipped over the years. They definitely need to work on customer service skills, because they are seriously lacking in that area. I would say about a quarter of the staff is awesome, the other 3/4 need an attitude adjustment or they need to be replaced. Recently, I have started taking my animals to other vets because the customer service is so awful @ San Joaquin. I think that says a lot having been a loyal customer for over 20 years. I hope they can turn it around there before they loose more their business. more

SJVH is the best animal clinic!!! 10/21/2010

It seems to me that the person who lost their dog to the pool accident needed to blame someone for their tradegy! SJVH is the best animal hospital in all of Fresno! Look at all the rave reviews from others than the tradegy that fell on that poor family! I trust no one else but SJVH!!! more

Dr. Alfaro is the best! 9/14/2010

Dr. Aubrey Alfaro is thoughtful, professional, caring, compassionate, and sensible. I love her informal personal style, and during the two years our dog, Muna, was one of her patients, I came to appreciate her skill and willingness to learn more in order to better help her patient. When Muna developed an unusual tumor on his face and needed surgery, she didn't waste any time, and arranged for him to have the surgery done that day. She arranged to have a biopsy sent to a very high level lab for analysis just to identify what kind it was and to reassure all of us that it was benign. The scar is completely invisible, even though she had to repair it again after he tore it open. Even though a vet hospital is often a place of stress and anxiety for a pet, when Dr. Alfaro walked into the room, Muna always relaxed and just seemed much happier. I cannot recommend Dr. Alfaro more highly -- she is really superb. I didn't have the same experience with her partner, Ken Stocks, though he seems competent, too, but I really highly recommend Dr. Alfaro. more

Not recommended by me 12/28/2009

I have not had good luck at all at this hospital. The staff is arogant and a tad rude and they are very high priced. They wouldn't even let us hold our cat or dog when we had to put them to sleep. I will not ever go there again. more

Alfaro Aubrey Dvm - San Joaquin Veterinary Hosp is The Best 11/25/2009

Such a caring vet! Dr. Alfaro helped me care for my aging cat through old age and kidney failure. Dr. Alfaro helped me make sure my cat had good quality of life which meant she was pain-free and happy. When we couldn't make that happen anymore Dr. Alfaro helped Igor make that transition across the Rainbow Bridge with peace and dignity and support for me as well. more

San Joaquin Veterinary Hosp is Awesome! 11/25/2009

Still awesome after five more years together. I highly recommend San Joaquin Vet Hospital for their outstanding care of both pets and their humans. Dr. Stocks and Dr. Alfaro and the entire staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and caring. Vets and staff alike take time to get to know you and your pet, and make a careful assessment of both the pet's condition and needs. They have cared for my several pets (and me) through some tough illnesses and injuries; all cases they were compassional and honest, making recommendations for treatment based on the best interests of the animal. Whenever possible they offer alternatives so the "pet parents" can make informed decisions. My pets and I look forward to our well-care visits and even those pesky shots are easier for my fur kids to handle because of the friendliness and knowledge of the staff. more

I Would Not recommed San Joaquin Veterinary Hospital 9/22/2008

San Joaquin Veterinary Hospital. It upsets me just to see their name. We had a loving little dog we saved from the dog shelter. She was 17 and in her last year she got hard of hearing and her sight was going also. She would get disoriented. She couldn't figure out how to go around objects. It was sad to see her go down hill. Everyone told us we needed to put her down because she looked so bad and had a difficult time getting around. But, we loved her so much we couldn't make that decision. I was looking for a professional to say, "this is the humane thing to do". So we took her to our vet, San Joaquin, thinking that the he would see how bad she was and hear my concerns about her health. I didn't know if she was in pain or if she might get out (it happens) and not know how to get back home or get hit by a car or whatever. My teenage daughter and I were belittled and made to feel as though we were the worst people in the world for even thinking of putting her down. We left a more

Friendly and helpful 9/5/2008

When I took my two puppies in for their shots, the staff was very helpful and good with my dogs. They made both of them (and me!) feel very comfortable. \r I would recommend San Joaquin Vet to my friends. more
