Unconscionable 4/22/2012

Go to this vet only if you hate your pet. After years of bringing my pet here and giving them money for well check ups, when she was in crisis they refused to see her, saying only that they ""only had one emergency spot available"" per day. When they were told of her symptoms, the vet said, ""it's probably just behavioral."" No, in fact it was not. My cat is in renal failure, something Union Sq. *could* have diagnosed a year ago when I brought her in to check on symptoms. The vet was too ignorant, however, to read the tests correctly. My cat went into remission, but her symptoms came back strong recently and now she is dying. But Union Sq. was too busy to see her. I had to bring her to another vet, who is now managing the disease. Yes, a disease - not bad behavior. I wonder if Union Sq. vet clinic would be so flippant about treating pets if they were somehow more accountable, say, with malpractice. more

all good things must come to an end 6/10/2009

For all the people who loved this veterinary clinic... Dr. Murphy is gone. The replacement vet is subpar. Time to find another clinic. Pros: Dr. Murphy Rocked Cons: Dr. Murphy is gone more

Down to Earth, straightforward, caring! 1/14/2009

I absolutely love this clinic. I took the first kitten I've been ""parent"" to, a barn rescue, here, and the staff is great. Dr. Murphy is fantastic and it's true, you can tell he really loves animals. His assistants are incredibly sweet, they have great hours for people who work 9-5, and I always leave with a complete understanding of what is going on and what I need to do. They're also very available for questions over the phone. A perfect mix of intelligent, caring people who will never make you feel guilty for not brushing your cats teeth everyday like some animal lovers will! more

Great people, very pleased 7/22/2008

The folks at Union Square Vet were absolutely spectacular during my most recent visit. I brought them what turned out to be a very sick cat; Dr. Murphy was extremely gentle in assessing the situation, which was much worse than I wanted to admit. Despite the dire prognosis, the assistants spent the next two hours making my cat (and me!) as comfortable as possible. They could have easily sold me any tests or work and I would have paid, but they were very straight about what they could and couldn't do, and gave me time to figure out what I wanted to do. I only wish I could find a doctor for *myself* with the compassion and bedside manner of Dr. Murphy and his staff. Pros: Very friendly staff - I literally could not have asked for better service more

Best Vet in the Area! 1/28/2008

We simply LOVE Dr. Murphy! He is extremely kind and gentle to our pets as well as being honest and down to earth. You can tell he really loves animals. He will tell you if something is wrong, but if it is something the pet can live with, he won't insist on medical treatment. He never makes us feel that we are ""bad parents"" if you will. The staff is professional and are always willing to accomodate our busy schedules. more

Dr. Murphy is a great vet 9/5/2007

Dr. Murphy is a wonderful vet. I've had only the best experiences taking my cats to him. It's obvious he really cares about animals. He's very sweet and gentle with them. He's very thorough in any examination and will answer any questions. He doesn't sugarcoat things, but he wants you to know what you have to do to help your pet be healthy. Apparently he doesn't give out bulk prescriptions, but as a licensed vet he probably has reasons for that. more

Dr. Murphy? More like Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde 5/10/2007

Dr. Murphy seems like a nice, easy going Vet at first, but over many months of treatment for my dog I found him to be condescending, judgmental, and oblivious to the financial realities of tratment. For example, he refused to write me a prescription for meds at a bulk quantity so I could get them from Canada. He just couldn't see my need to get meds at 1/2 price and rudely outright refused. My dog has been a patient of many vets (as I move around the country for work) and this is the only one that has been anything other than sweet and competent. I highly discourage anyone from patronizing this office. more
