WOW! I cannot believe the negative reviews. I have been going to Dr. Marmesh for about 18 years, and am thrilled such a vet exists (and that his daughter, Kate Marmesh, is his successor). We are so happy there that when we moved out of Dade County up to Hollywood, we have continued to make the trek down to the Grove for what we consider superior animal care (and this, despite being Hollywood residents, home of the famous HOllywood Animal Hospital). Being from an animal loving family of multiple pet owners, we have tried countless vets...but none have compared to Dr. Marmesh. Yes, he's somewhat aloof at times, but frankly, I don't go to my vet to discuss American Idol contestants. His diagnoses and treatments are typically right on, and when he doesn't have an answer, he admits to it and is not afraid or too insecure to suggest a trip to a higher tech animal hospital (which is rarely necessary...but admittedly, his clinic is on the no-frills side). And his prices are incredible--I've never been gauged the way I have been with other vets. He is honest, accurate, and has a passion for animal care that is unrivaled. His daughter Kate is following in his footsteps, thank God. I cannot say enough about this animal clinic. Don't go by those negative reviews-this is the best vet practice in South Florida.
