I had multiple friends recommend this vet to me when I got a new kitten, except for one person who had a bad experience here with her cat. I took my cat here twice and both times waited to see the doctor for almost 2 hours. The purpose of my second visit was because my 8 month old cat appeared to have tape worms as well as vaginal discharge. I was very worried because I read about a deadly infection cats can get called ""pyometra"". Although I waited almost 2 hours to see the vet, by the time I saw him he appeared to be in too much of a hurry to see my cat and answer my questions. He confirmed the tape worms and tried to scurry off. I had to remind him of the vaginal discharge my cat was having, which was the main reason I brought her in that morning. I missed work because I was so concerned. He dismissed the discharge as a side effect of her going through her first heat cycle, WITHOUT EVEN LOOKING AT IT. I left the vet feeling very frustrated and concerned, but I already spent $86 and wasted almost 3 hours and a vacation day at work. Just took my cat to the Charleston Animal Society to have her spayed and they confirmed that she DID have a pyometra. If I had trusted Patrick Veterinary Clinic, my cat could have died from this deadly infection of the uterus. In my opinion, if you care deeply about your cat you would look elsewhere for a veterinarian. I am!
