Love this place 12/2/2012

Great vet! I highly recommend him anytime, prices are def more affordable than other vets in the area and the care Dr. McCarthy provides is exceptional! The staff should not stop you from providing the best care for your pets, people are rude all the time, who cares, my pets are in great hands and although the staff is a bit cranky at times, the doctor is fabulous with my pets and addresses all my concerns! more

Professional & Caring 2/25/2011

When one of my dogs developed a hematoma on her ear, I needed to find a vet quickly. I am new to the area and had concerns about finding a vet who would provide the type of care that I am use to for my puppies. The reviews here stated that the vet was good but the office staff was rude - I have experienced only the very best in service from everyone in this office. They are all so friendly, caring, and professional. I highly recommend them. February 2011. more

Ford Veterinary Hospital 9/11/2010

The problem with the reviews is that there are no dates on them. Things do not remain constant. Since there are no dates on the reviews they cannot be relied upon. more

Rude office staff 7/3/2010

I totally agree with all the comments about the front desk staff. They are THE RUDEST people I have ever met. I have been going to Dr. McCarthy for 15 years and I have not one complaint about him or Dr. King who has also seen and treated my animals. I have had 3 dogs and 2 cats spayed with no incidents and I have had 2 animals with chronic health problems. He has always explained my options and never tried to push me into decisions or costly products or services that I didn't need (unlike other vets in the area.) I don't know why the office staff are allowed to treat his customers that way....maybe he is not aware but they definately ruin things for the business he is trying to run. more

Stupid-Snippy-Glorified-Cashiers are ruining an otherwise decent practice 4/29/2010

First, the parking situation is nearly impossible, as in non-existent. Once you actually get into the office you're greeted by the worse excuse for customer service. Ever. If they are so miserable they should find new jobs and let people who genuinely like people and animals work the front desk. So after being accosted by the cashier I then got to wait in the mixed-pet waiting room for a very long time. The vet was very nice, but seemed to be in a very big hurry and didn't really spend too much time with us. I realize that we were there for some pretty routine treatment, but I went through quite a bit to make it into that room! ;). As far as cost goes, the prices seemed reasonable but like I said my services were routine (office visit, vaccinations, nail trim & neutering). Ultimately, after 2 visits I had had enough of the front room staff & and left for friendlier pastures. more

Wonderful 2/27/2010

The Receptionist was a Little rude. But the Vet is Wonderful. This place has great prices. I take my Two cats and One dog here. They treated them great. Both my cats were fixed/spayed here. more

Great vet! Rude staff 9/9/2009

I do agree that the staff is rude and not accommodating to the owner, but my dogs have always been treated well. I have taken 6 to them over the years. And the prices are cheaper than other vets in the area. Between $50-$100. Don't go to Dr. Mike's. hes a nice guy but a scam artist. He's the type that take advantage of our love for our animals. more

Great Experience 6/25/2009

Had a wonderful experience with Dr.King. I took my very shy basset hound in for a physical and inoculations. She was gentle and thourough. I was prompt and they saw my dog immediately. more

I own Cujo 3/22/2008

Dr. McCarthy was wonderful with my 6.5yr. old, dual personality Lab/Sheppard Mix. My dog turns into Cujo when at the vet, assumingly from a bad experience with another vet as a puppy. However, Dr. M was very patient, and was not afraid of him like the other vet in Lewiston was. He handled my pooch sympathetically, and didn't pressure me into any rash decisions. Dr.M. was clear on what to expect and what could be done. (My dog has hip dysplasia). I appreciated the time he took and his staff @ the Lewiston office was very friendly. more

receptionist could be more friendly 11/29/2007

Thought the receptionist was a bit on the unfriendly side. I went to pick up prescription pet food. The woman behind the desk got kind of snippy and said that I should've called first. Well, I told her that nobody told me I had to call first to pick up cat food. The vet was kind to my pet and seemed to care about him. more

Ford Veterinary Associates 7/2/2006

I?m not a big fan of this office. The office staff treated me very rudely. I had an unpleasant conversation on the phone and when I brought my pet in. I will never come back here again, it seems like the care of the animal is not a major priority here. more

very unpleasant service 12/29/2005

We wont be going here anytime soon. We were very displeased with the service we recieved. They were harsh with our cat, and took WAY too long. We were in the waiting room for almost an hour and a half!! To top it off, the prices are steep, and it is dificult to get in and out of the parking lot during the day. I do not recommend. more

wouldn' t recommend this vet 8/6/2005

This vet misdiagnosed my dog as having recurrent UTI's when, in fact, she had stones that required surgery. The office staff could be friendlier as well. more
