Dr. Loretta Pesteanu, Dr. Joanne Ruggiero and Dr. Howard Hollander are amazing. They really care about you and your pets and it is nice to go to a place that they know the owner...

GONE DOWNHILL AFTER GOING CORPORATE 9/16/2012

WOW! What a change in this place! After going corporate (VCA owns it now) - the prices went up and the quality WAY DOWN!!! Although VCA cleaned house of bad vets and unlicensed vets practicing there - it still has lost that neighborhood feeling of being a good place to take your pets for vet care. I used to take my family pets there - had been going there for years - NOT ANYMORE!! more

Bad experience 1/23/2011

It's very important to have a veternarian that you trust. I've been here twice and never seen Dr. Hollander. I did see Dr. Nunemacher, however, and I agree with the other reviewer. I really didn't trust anything she was saying and felt that she was just money hungry. I won't go back. more

They saved my baby! 10/14/2009

They are angels!! My 13 year old cat Martina has diabetes for awhile and recently had a diabetes crisis. I was away for 2 days (and had a pet sitter but my kitty was hiding) and when I got back she just wasn't right. Of course I took her immediately to see Dr. Nunemacher who knew what was wrong right away and knew exactly what to do. She was very kind and didn't blame me and explained everything. She had to stay in the hospital for a few days and I got updates every day. When Dr. Nunemacher wasn't there I got a call from Dr. Gentis who was very nice also. At the end of a long saga, I have my baby back and she is so happy to feel better!! It was not cheap but I cannot put a price on my baby's life. I would reccomend this hospital and these doctors to anyone!!! more

Cold Vet, High Prices 9/5/2009

Good: Marilyn the Receptionist.. Bad: Dr. Nunemacher is rude, cold, money hungry (just because you have to pay off your student loans DOES NOT mean you take advantage of animal owners love for their babies!) and condescending! All of which I've found VERY insulting!. Improvements: How about some compassion? People skills.. Other: I WILL NEVER RETURN TO THIS VET HOSPITAL! ZERO star rating!. more

The Best Care for your fur babies 11/7/2007

The Best Care for your fur babies Bay Ridge Animal Hospital is the best animal hospital. Dr Hollander saved my Cat’s life when he became sick from eating the recalled pet food. Dr Hollander call me when I first brought my cat back home after being in the hospital for 5 days, Dr Hollander takes time out of his busy day to talk with all of his clients. All of his staff is very helpful!!!!!!!! I would not bring my fur babies to any other Vet and I have 12 cats! Thanks Toniann more

Bay Ridge Animal Hospital is the best and here is THE one to avoid 5/21/2007

I agree with the GREAT reviews for Bay Ridge Animal Hospital. Our pooch is our life and we would not entrust her care to anyONE other than Dr. Hollander. Surely Marlene M. is referring to the HORROR at 689 86TH St Brooklyn, NY 11228-3219 Phone: (718) 833-0700 Now THIS is a real terrible place. We took our little one there and she was badly treated, got extraordinarily ill from a misdiagnosis... more

Dr. Hollander 3/30/2007

I love this office everyone is very nice,they are very flexable with making appointments it's allways a clean pleasant office.I LOVE Dr. Hollander you can tell that him and his staff really care.I highly recommend this office!! more

Wonderful Care! 2/24/2007

This is a wonderful clinic! I have a 2 yr. old Yorkie, and this clinic has treated Yoshi sensational. I have no complaints with this wonderful clinic. They also treat me with great respect, they always make sure I understand all procedures. I thank all the great staff, and especially Dr.Hollander. Thank You! more

Bay Ridge Animal Hospital on 5th Ave. at 69th St. 2/13/2007

Like the others who have posted, I suspect that Marlene M. is confused as to which clinic she references. My cats are all treated by Dr. Hollander at BRAH, and I have found the care there to be modern, up-to-date and conscientious. The facility, which was recently gutted and remodeled, is lovely and well-equipped. I had a cat (since deceased) with chronic renal failure, hyperthyroidism and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. That cat was seen by a highly regarded cardiac specialist on the Upper East Side as well as by Dr. Hollander, and the diagnoses that Dr. Hollander had made regarding my cat were all completely accurate and thorough, as evidenced by the cardiac specialist echoing all of Dr. Hollander's conclusions. I have found every approach taken with my cats to be cutting edge in terms of up-to-date knowledge on the part of Dr. Hollander and his staff. They clearly maintain ongoing research and study into the best approaches to and advances in feline health, and their practices around keeping animals healthy are top-notch. They are not an inexpensive facility, but they are also relatively on par with the other veterinary clinics I've used in Brooklyn and Manhattan. I have taken my cats to a large number of veterinarians over the years due to frequent work-related relocations, and BRAH is absolutely among the best I've found. more

Type the title here for your review of Bay Ridge Animal Hospital 1/26/2007

The other posters are correct.. Marlene M is indeed incorrectly referring to the Bay Ridge Animal Hospital as a horrible place. She is confusing it with the Nightmare of an animal hospital that has since closed.. and also one further uptown in Bay Ridge. The Bay Ridge Animal Hospital on 5th Avenue and 69th Street is a WONDERFUL place. The Doctors and staff are all caring, loving, responsible people who have cared for all of my animals over the many years. Please do not take what this person states as fact. She is slandering a business that does not deserve this. more

You are completely and UTTERLY wrong Marlene M 1/21/2007

I sympathize with your bad experience, however if you had a pet emergency, and went to an emergency animal hospital on 69th street, did you go to the Bay Ridge Emergency Hospital? The one located BTWN 5th ave and 4th ave on 69th street? OR the one ON 5th Ave next to the alpine movie theater, and has been serving and caring for the pets of bay ridge for over 65 years? There are (were......as the emergency hosp closed down, the one I think you went to )two locations with similair names just a half a block away from each other. You better check your facts before spreading untrue rumors about the most caring and dedicated animal hospital I and my MANY animals trust for new and innovative treatments. WHAT WAS THE ADDRESS OF THE PLACE YOU ACTUALLY WENT TO? WHAT WAS THE DOCTORS NAME? I refuse to beleive the name and the horror story you are preaching to people match. more
