Animal Hospital good, but not great
posted 6 years ago
I have 2 dogs, and I have recently adopted another. I used to bring all 3 to the Tribeca SOHO Animal Hospital, and each time I always left with a feeling of unease. The staff are very friendly, however, I feel that I do not get all the information I need after each visit.
Two of my little doggies were operated on at the hospital for mysterious lumps. I think their operation was handled quite sloppily, it took them a long time to recover, and their post-operative care from the hospital was not very satisfactory. They left rough scars due to the stitches, of which pieces still are left under their skin to this day. They are also very quick to suggest an operation as the panacea for any problem. Most recently I found another lump in my dog's leg and the doctor immediately suggested that I bring her in to be operated on. When I expressed hesitation, she basically told me that operating on my 16 year old dog was the only option.
Being dissatisfied with this diagnosis, I took my dog to get a second opinion. The other vet has given me non-surgical options, and found a torn ligament in my doggie's leg that the hospital completely missed. He answered my questions completely and patiently, and I didn't feel as rushed as I normally do at the animal hospital.
The animal hospital is not a bad place, I was normally quite satisfied. But it has the feeling of a factory, you get processed, and you pay highly for it. They also are not as thorough as they can be, and they don't tell you everything that you ought to know. If you decide to bring your loved ones in for a check-up, I suggest doing a little research first and ask lots of questions and demand answers.
Pros: friendly service, nice environment
Cons: feel like you're in a factory

My Dog LOVES it Here!
posted 2 years ago
I've been coming to this wonderful vet hospital for 6 years now and highly recommend this facility. My little pup, Fluffy (I know - such a typical name, but he is really a fluff of fur!) LOVES it here! Everyone that we've met here has been very kind, loving and professional. He has seen all of the vets here and they have all been great! They have all called me at various times to check in on how he was doing after his neuter, when he had the runs several times and especially after he had to stay there overnight. I was so worried, but I truly trust them with my baby and knew that he was in very good hands. Would highly recommend this place!
