Overall Poor to fair\r iT'S BEEN ALMOST 3 years now since I wrote this review. We are still heartbroken and disgusted by the 'care' our dog received by EAST SIDE ANIMAL HOSPITAL...If you want your pet to suffer and die, like our beloved dog did then take your chances. Dr, Manning is an arrogant vet and owner of this practice. He and his vet Assc. Dr Tannenbuam are unethical, scam artists who pray on the vulnerability of people who love their pets and would do anything to make them better.They should, and will be, if I have anything to do with it, charged with cruelty to, and negligence of animals.) He is a Monster and will kill your pet, after he's charged you every dime he can to make money from vulnerable people who love their pets and will do anything for them. We brought our beloved Great Dane, who had never been sick a day in her life, to his 'clinic' with diarrhea , the first vet, a blonde woman who actually was very good (and I do not involve her in this review) correctly I beli more

wonderful practice 9/27/2010

I have a very happy cat thanks to East Side Animal Hospital. After being lethargic for 3 days I brought my 13 year old cat in to see Dr. Manning. After going over the history and doing a thorough exam he found my cat to have back pain. He told me that it must have hurt itself jumping, and was probably having some arthritis as well. He proceded to give it an injection for the pain and send me home with medication for the arthritis - not only was the cat back to himself the next day, but he jumped up on the counter for the first time in weeks. more

The best vet ever!!! 9/27/2010

I love this practice --- they are so friendly and accomodating when I bring my puppy dog. Dr. Manning is the kindest, most thorough and sincere doctor that I have met. He takes the time to explain everything to me. He was the only doctor - and I saw MANY - that was able to cure my dogs skin ailments - I am forever grateful .\r \r more

A Concerned And Caring Vet 11/11/2009

I have known Dr. Manning for more than 20 years. He is\r a caring person and a skilled doctor. He is always glad to answer questions in a practical, direct and patient manner. He has taken care of several of my dogs and\r has always been available and very kind. Your pet is in good hands with Dr. Keith Manning. I love the dogey day care too. more

I love Dr. Manning 9/1/2009

Pros: kind, caring, patient, brilliant more

Best Vet I have ever had 6/16/2009

I definitely recommend East Side Animal Hospital, especially Dr. Manning. My 8 year old Shih Tzu had slipped a disk in his back, and I thought for sure he would need expensive surgery from talking to other vets. While Dr. Manning said that was a course of action of last resort, he recommended a less invasive (and less expensive) course of treatment, and Hunter was able to avoid the surgery. Now he is back to his old playful self. Thanks East Side Animal Hospital! Pros: Dr. Manning is kind and honest more

Best Animal Hospital in NYC 5/23/2009

Dr. Manning is probably the best vet I have ever met - and I have had dogs for 30 years!.\r He is the most patient doctor - listens to everything I say - never takes a casual attitude towards my dogs symptoms - He spends so much time with me that I always have to schedule a long visit in my day - even if it is a simple check-up - He is so completely thorough - and loving - East Side is the best! Pros: Dr. Manning is kind and wonderful - more

Unfriendly and Expensive 4/24/2009

I would not recommend East Side Animal Hospital to anyone. Our dog came down with what we thought was a UTI over a weekend and we quickly tried to find a vet in the NYC area as we had just moved. We brought our dog to East Side and overall the visit was ok, but, their follow-up was extremely disappointing. Instead of calling us with our dog's culture results, they made us call them several times until the results were in. I was told after my first attempt to call for her results that a vet would call me back ASAP. I never heard back so continued to call in hopes that I would get through to a vet. In addition, when I finally reached a vet who had our dog's culture results, he was impatient and rushed me off the phone. Not only did he talk to me like I was an idiot, but he quickly glossed over my questions and made me feel like asking questions was annoying. I asked several times about side-effects of an antibiotic my dog was taking and his voice became very edgy as if I was offending him in some way. Having studied at the most prestigious vet school in the United States, I can easily say that East Side Animal Hospital is a poor choice for anyone who loves their pet. Cons: Impatient Veterinarians, Overpriced more

Best Veterinarian Clinic in NYC!!!!!!!!!! 11/20/2008

\r I have been to many Vets in NY. Dr Manning is incredibly caring and kind. My golden, Dakota was treated by him for 13 years. When she had to be put to sleep, Dr Dipolo came in on a Sunday and held my hand and\r really cared for my dear Dakota and for me. They are loving and caring. Yes, they are expensive like other\r Vets, but in the end you get more than you paid for. When I adopted Wally my rescue Daschund, Dr Manning\r helped me with knowing how to take care of this small breed and turned me on to the best behavior therapist, since he had been abused and run over by a car. I dont know how anyone could not honor their expertise and\r warm bedside manner. I have never ever had a issue. Highly recommend to anyone. more

Great vet! 9/12/2008

They took good care of my dog. He came in as he got giardia at a kennel and the staff took good care of him. more

Dr. Dipolo is the BEST! 9/2/2008

Dr. Dipolo is the best!\r \r I called Dr. Dipolo on a recommendation from a friend. I was truly at my wits end. My Peke had a cervical spine injury which all of the top orthopedic vets in Manhattan - recommended surgery. Dr. Dipolo was confident he could help my dog with accupuncture and by ""getting him off the steriods"". And it worked......!! \r \r Thoughful, compassionate and extremely competent- I now travel from New Jersey and have complete trust in his conservative, yet holistic approach to BOTH my senior dogs health. \r \r And all of my other serious pet parent friends are thrilled as well !\r \r more

Mixed experience 4/27/2008

So I have been taking my dog there for a few years and the more time I spend there the more I wonder about the establishment. Ive owned many dogs and have seen several vet offices. I had a good experience with the docs but I feel that the staff does not take the time to tell you everything and that you have to always ask about every little detail in order to get the entire story about the care my pet needed. I always have to double check the bill too when I leave and always catch something. I've taken my dog to the day care and every time I pick him up he pee's like he has been locked up all day...whats that about east side? The receptionist too always has an attitude when I come there and I end up taking it personally and do not think its appropriate for a business. So I'm looking for a new vet.. Pros: Doctors Cons: staff, doggy day care more

Hooray For East side 2/26/2008

hi i have read the reviews and i cant believe anyone would have a bad word to say i have seen dr manning for the past 6 months and have to say its has been a pleasure i guess when your working with living animals its hard to be perfect but they definitely strive to do there best i myself coming from the medical field i myself as a registered nurse feel we can only do our best and make sure our hearts our in the right place! good luck to all and god bless Pros: several doctors on call Cons: they only have one location more

Do you want a Dead Dog? 2/26/2008

This Animal hospital is a dump. First off: As i am waiting in the waiting room with my dog, a dog with it's ear bandaged up, is released to it's owners from surgery and shakes his head and makes a red Jackson Pollack on the floor. What's worse is the slow paced reaction to an upsetting situation. They came back with it bandaged up and the owners claimed that it would choke on the tightness of the bandage. I should have left then....Great impression! There was only one vet on call at that moment and she deemed it appropriate to give my 1.5 lb puppy a rabies shot, which she nearly died from, 3 days later. They didnt even wait for a stool sample to see if she was healthy enough. My dog spent the weekend in the Animal Medical Center (which is by far a superior institution.) Why? Because she had Coxidea a parasite that can be detected in her stool sample, which the East Side Animal Hospital lost the results of - WE HAD TO CALL THEM TO TELL THEM THAT SHE HAD COXIDEA and a bacteria infection! Then they called back and told us ""Oh, were right!"" I-D-I-O-T-S! I will be reporting this dump to the board of Vetinerarians. Cons: The entire establishment more

Dr. DiPolo is the best! 9/15/2007

I had seen Dr. Tennenbaum on several occasions and was always shocked at my bill when the time came to pay, and my dog never seemed to get any better despite numerous tests. Finally, I saw Dr. DiPolo because Dr. Tennenbaum was out of the office and the difference was amazing. Not only did he listen to me and my frustrations regarding the high cost of treatment without results, his treatment cured my dog within a week and it didn't cost me a fortune. I am not sure about the other two vets that work there but stay away from Dr. Tennenbaum and if you can see Dr. Dipolo. more

Best Veterinarian 8/27/2007

The veterinary care which my dog receives at East Side Animal Hospital is superior. My dog has chronic Pros: Excellent Veterinarian. more

Overpriced and incompetent 5/9/2007

I brought my 2 year old Pug on recommendation from the pet store where I got my dog. This place was easily 20% more than anywhere else I went. They told me my dog needed knee surgery right away. I brought my dog to Bergh for a second opinion and my dog doesn't need surgery. I think East Side tries to build up the charges at the expense of owners and their animals. Pros: Convenient to midtown locations Cons: Skill of vets, very expensive more

Avoid the boarding facilities, dog died on there watch 4/25/2007

We took our small poodle to board with the hospital for three days. Our first time boarding with ESAH. They claim our dog ""got sick"" the day before and the next morning when they checked on him, he was critical, somehow he got fluid in his lungs, through out the day the doctors worked on him but could not save his life. I believe the boarding facilities were lazy in monitoring our dog. They didn't call us until our dog was already so critical, there was a strong possibility he will die. Something happened to our poodle in their boarding facilities that caused him to aspirate fluid in to his lungs. Something went wrong and they don't have answers. more

GREAT Dog/Animal Hospital!! 11/5/2005

Our family own two beautiful dogs. Unfortunently, they sometimes get sick (mostly around winter time). This hospital on 52nd street is the most friendly Animal Hospital I have ever seen. The staff and vets are so nice, and helped my dogs a lot. They are true pros and will guide you on how to take care of your pet when he/she is sick. Wonderful!! Very Recommended for pet owners! PROS: GREAT pro service CONS: none!!! more

Nice place to board your dog! 7/21/2005

East Side Animal Hospital provides a good, reasonably priced option for dog boarding. We are always apprehensive to leave our dog, but feel especially comfortable leaving her with a vet. Our dog has come back from stays fine and happy. They seem to take good care of the animals and are the lowest priced option in the area that we could find. more
