Editorial review from Citysearch 12/31/2013

I can't Thank the Northview Team enough for the hard work and caring they provided to my pets, in particular Lucky. I just recently lost ""Lucky"" my 13 yr old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier to complications of cancer. As a Navy Man, Lucky and I ran everyday and night and enjoyed life to it's fullest. The ""Outstanding"" Clinical Care provided by the Northview Team in Particular Dr. Pauly and Dr. Romero allowed Lucky to live a long and wonderful life.\r From the administrative Team in the front to the Tech's and Doctors, Thank You for your Loving and Caring of our ""Four Legged Companions"" that travel the roads of life with us.\r Respectfully\r \r Chappy, United States Navy more

Editorial review from Citysearch 5/9/2013

There's usually a wait, but it's because the clinic is so popular. Drs. Romero and Helper have both worked with my dogs, and have been brilliant. I'd had a bad experience with Petroglyph, where my dog was treated as a cash cow, so will happily take the extra time to travel from Rio Rancho to have my pups looked after so well at Northview. more

The best in town! 4/2/2012

I stumbled upon this and signed up just to respond! I have had dogs my entire life and Dr. Helper is the best Doc in town. That could be why you had a 7 minute wait. You might have been accidentally disconnected too. IT is your pets loss, not yours not to see Dr. Helper. I have had him take care of my animals for about 17 years now, I was frantic once home alone with my 125 lb sheepdog who was suddenly able to walk. DR. HELPER DROVE TO MY HOUSE! Enough said. Hope you find another vet who would be even willing to consider doing that for you. Ronni Lamirata. more

Compassionate and SKilled 7/30/2011

Northview Animal Hospital was started many years ago by Dr. Helper. It has remained in it's current location just off of Wyoming Blvd north of Paseo del Norte as long as my family has used his services. more

Hope This Gets Better... 7/29/2011

I am a potential new client at this clinic. During the 7 MINUTES I was on hold (before they hung up on me, by the way...) I read the reviews complaining about the long hold times and rude office staff. They're accurate...When I called back and said 'Hi. I was on hold to make an appointment but was hung up on.', the snotty woman on the other end said 'We didnt hang up on you but what kind of appointment do you want?' I'm going to keep the appointment, but I really hope this gets better on my visit....or I'll be shopping for a new vet! more

Best Veterinarians in Albuquerque 5/20/2011

I used to work at Northview for over 6 years.After that time of venturing on in my life. I have come to realize there are ABSOLUTELY NO other vets in town that I would recommend. I have seen these doctors while working with them and also as a client and they are truly the best!! I ALWAYS recommend them to anyone who might need a compassionate, not overpriced, and very well educated Veterinarian. ANY of the doctors there are great! They get a little busy but will never make you feel like you have wasted your or your pets time. The prices are exceptionally reasonable and they WILL NOT rip you off.. You get exceptional care throughout your pets procedures and they will address his/her needs. Like I said, I have not been at Northview as an employee for over 2 years now but I am defiantly a for life client (as long as they will have me :) more

Amazing Animal Hospital 5/19/2011

We recently had to put our beloved Golden Retriever to sleep. Northview Animal Hospital was there every step of the way with us. They were incredibly caring and compassionate. There were even tears from the staff. We truly knew we were not alone in our greiving. more

Really impressed so far 5/18/2011

We recently found out our vet of 6 years had retired (he didn't even notify us) and asked around for recommendations for vets from our friends. Our neighbor couldn't say enough good things about Dr. Romero at Northview, and she was absolutely right. She has seen both of our dogs for general checkups, and she took a lot of time to discuss their issues with me and how we could address them. And Northview is considerably cheaper than where we were previously going (a VCA branch). I feel really lucky that we have great vets so close to where we live and that we found a great fit with Dr. Romero so quickly. more

Great vets! 4/14/2011

We have been using Northview for about 14 years...have worked with almost all the drs at one time or another for my Rhodesian Ridgebacks...Have always found staff to be thoughtful, compassionate, and kind. The front desk situation seems to have improved lately though as all offices, I'm sure they have good days and bad more

Great Vet! 3/11/2011

I have been with Dr. Helper since the early 1990s (if not earlier) and would not even consider going to another veterinarian in Albuquerque! I am, admittedly, absolutely crazy in love with my dogs and cat and would probably be hard to please, but Dr. Helper and associates have always gone out of their way to do everything they possibly could to help. They have always treated my pets as if they were their own and, even when we've had to put one of our beloved, 4-legged family members to sleep, we have been shown nothing but extreme love and compassion. I never feel rushed and appreciate being able to ask all the questions I need to ask and know that I get honest, professional answers. more

Nothing but good things to say about Dr. Helper and staff 1/25/2011

Dr. Helper has been taking care of our animals for over 10 years. We and our furry friends have been treated with nothing but respect. Yes, this is a busy place, which is not surprising with the huge client base they have built up. The prices are very fair also. If you think otherwise, try some of the other animal clinics around town. Having owned my own business, I am well aware of what overhead is all about. The cost of doing business keeps going up for everyone. more

Good Place Gone Bad 1/2/2011

I used to work with Northview through a group called CARMA (a non-profit rescue) about 5-6 years ago, and back then they were prompt, helpful, and reasonably priced. Now that I bring my own pets, you wait on hold if you call (even if you say you can't wait, they put you on hold), the waiting area is usually jam packed and the ladies up front are rude, impatient, and rarely smile or wish you nice day. The prices have risen so much that someone on my salary just can't afford it, let alone the nearly 30 minute drive that I make just to pick up prescription food. One of the doctors also refused to help answer questions about a raw diet for my dogs and got very aggravated that I was even considering it, rather than professionally guiding me or even recommending me to someone else if she had issues with it. I am slowly moving all my pets and records elsewhere. more

not great 4/22/2010

The little girls who work there are daffy at best. They keep you on hold forever when they don't hang up on you. Dr. Helper took a full year to diagnose ear mites! Charging $70.00 for each visit and, yes, it took four visits. I have been taking my dogs to this vet for over 9 years and in the last four years the place has gone downhill. I will be going somewhere else. Cons: long waits on phone, incompetent staff more

Dr Helper and Staff are Terrific! 10/17/2009

All my fur-faces (kitties) have been patients of Dr. Helper's since 1983, and he is the BEST! I drive 45 miles one way to take my cats to him. He truly loves animals and has a great way of explaining any health and medical issues and concerns to their humans. He takes the time and care necessary for each patient, and is just an all-around great guy! Thank you for keeping my kitties healthy. We really appreciate your hard work and kind way you treat everybody. more
