PJ, the Technician, was very polite and knowledgeable. Dr.Shakeri was very attentive and answered all of my questions. I was very pleased with her.
I am grateful to PJ and Dr. Albino (as well as office staff ) for being available to assist my Gerbil on Christmas Eve. I’m so thankful they see exotic animals!
Staff was awesome!!! Thanks PJ for answering all my questions and being super sweet!!!
Dr. Shakeri and PJ were very knowledgeable about hedgehogs and were honest and thorough about their recommendations for their care. Excellent customer service!
We saw Dr. Weston and she was AMAZING. For an emergency visit, the price was very fair and the reason I will go to Central Hospital… Dr. Weston went above and beyond with my dog and I was very happy with how things were handled.
The coordination between your staff and our vet was exceptional. We (our 8 kitties) were greeted and taken in right away. Thank you. Everyone is so caring and considerate, willing to help.
I’m thankful my vet recommended this facility and the oncology team at Central Vet Hospital. Dr. Olmsted and her team are all very helpful and supportive and patiently answer all my questions.
Vets are friendly, caring, and take time to explain everything. Overall, excellent service and I feel very fortunate to have such a good 24hr pet hospital near me in case of emergencies
We visit monthly for allergy vaccinations. Everyone is very kind to Tashi, my dog, and to me. Tashi enjoys going. We are very happy.
I have no complaints; as good an experience as possible with a seriously sick pet — traveled for the expertise of surgeon, per advice of my local vet, and received both expertise and compassion to my animal, as well considerate treatment, myself.
Thank you for being there and providing such great care and service to animals 24/7. Don’t know what we would have done without you! Thank you!
Dr. Kennedy and Dr. Smith were awesome with our pup. Honestly, everyone was. Your facility is top notch.
I came in on Christmas Day with a wounded dog. I can’t thank the staff enough! They were outstanding. Thank you for being open around the clock.
Dr. Wells was very kind and understanding. She spent the time to explain all options and made us feel like she truly cared about our cat and family as a whole.
