A Couple of Good Vets 10/7/2011

I too had a problem with Dr. Rangel and will never use him again but the other vets there are by far the best vets around. I have used Dr. Dittmen and Dr. Putnam and I highly recommend them. I've used both of them for years and years and they have the highest regard for my pets and their needs. Just saw another vet that I had not used before. She seemed pretty good and very patient with me but the bill seemed extraordinarily high. I paid for a basic fix and am heading to a different vet. They used to care more that the animal was taken care of instead of $. more

Great if you are lucky... 4/27/2011

Rangel diagnosed my dog, Leeloo, with heartworm, which we already knew (as told by a previous vet). The vet was sketchy and didn't start her on a preventative immediately as do most vets-especially when they find out the dog has heartworm. Which is why we decided to take her to altas palmas. She also had begun coughing, still losing weight, dripping after a spay, and limping suddenly. However, Rangel was disconcerned with my dog's sudden weight loss which made me think I was overanalyzing my dogs digression. Getting answers and information out of this vet was like pulling a tooth-and he's supposed to be the knowledgable one telling me what's wrong with my dog, what to do, and what to be prepared for! HE IS the vet! Since my dog wasn't in great shape heartworm treatment wouldnt be for another few months. As he kicked me out the door with an infection med, heartguard and flea pill, to hurry and take my money, I had to stall him once more to ask him if my dogs front paw would be okay, since one of the reason for bringing her in was that she wasn't walking well (the tech even carried her out of the truck). Well that jerk did not even care, he said hadn't noticed it, made her walk, said she was fine and if she wasn't by her 2 week follow up appt, then we might x-ray it. When I got home to take her out, I saw another red spot from her spay and remembered he had not answered my question of why she was still bleeding if she was spayed. When I called to take him, they said he was on lunch and would call me back. He did not. I gave him 4 days and called myself to request a diff vet for the follow up. Well 2 days before her appt she died...and if you think your dog might need serious attention, don't go to him. Only Putman and Ditman would I trust with my dog, bc Ditman treated my min pin when she had cancer and explained everything well, and some. Putman actually called me back to answer someo f my questions of my dearl, now passed Leeloo, not Rangel. If it weren't for those 2 careing vets, I would give this review 0 stars bc Rangel sadly represents this clinic as well. more

Will NEVER return 6/23/2009

Rangel did not examine my cat; told me to bring him back for a procedure; gave ABTX. Charged $70; $40 of which was for exam he did not do. Cat is still suffering. Will go to another vet.. Pros: Big parking lot & waiting area Cons: Dirty exam table & scale more


The doctor who saw my dog yesterday 1-29-09 said he had scabies, she started mentioning how bad it was and to be careful and what nots.. once we mentioned we bought the dog at a pet store in weslaco (morenos pet and feed) she started to studder and taking back some of the diagnoses she found on our dog.. instead of giving us a typed diagnoses on our statement, she hands us a copy of her hand written notes.. which did not add up to her verbal finding on our dog.. we took our dog to another vet.. ended up being our puppy did not have scabies, she had given our dog an uneccisary medication that made our dog unresponsive to his usual highly active self... I would never recommend this vet to any animal lover out there... dr. burgur get ur DIAGNOSES straight before u HARM innocent animals! Pros: alot of staff Cons: dr.'s stink more
