First of all, no one speaks English. Second, I ask for medical records for my dogs and they say they can’t find them… and I gave them my invoice number they sent me. HOW EASY IS IT, I do your job for you?! Third, the doctor is extremely rude saying that he can’t do that right now because he has an “emergency.” I asked the receptionist to send me the medical records on FRIDAY. It is Monday today and why have I not gotten it? Also, the receptionist sent me an invoice instead of records. I stayed with her for 30 minutes explaining to her I need MEDICAL RECORDS. Lastly, the tools they use are medieval. My dogs hate coming here because they still use the medical devices to CLAMP on their armpits for their heartbeat. I’m sorry but we aren’t in the 1950s. No wonder my dog wants to bite the doctor. No bedside manner whatsoever. When I actually had an emergency I took my dog to VEG in Aventura cause I know that this vet will kill my dog cause they don’t know what they’re doing with their old equipment and no technology advancements.

I do not recommend this place. (For transparency Per owners comment. Mask was put on per the facility request but continued to ask me personal questions instead of asking about the dog’s well being. Service wasn’t refused, I simply walked out.)

The staff is just amazing. I called Dr. Oscar on Saturday at 9pm because my mini poodle Marley suffered a back injury. He didn’t hesitate in telling me to come straight to the office to evaluate his injuries. After looking him over he advised he would need surgery and around the clock watch so he wouldn’t get any worse. They provided me with all the information needed to best treat him and made him feel safe while under their care. I have been to other vets office and after this experience I will not go anywhere else. They even sent me pictures and videos of Marley so my wife and I can rest assure he is in good hands. Thank you again Dr. Oscar and the whole Coral Way Animal Clinic staff for your professionalism and patience. Highly recommended!!

Very grateful to Dr. and his team. They operated on my dog in emergency, for a pyometra (infection in the uterus). Since we arrived at the clinic they treated us with great kindness and patience, they show a lot of love and dedication for the animals, they even managed to calm my nerves. The whole process of the operation and the post-operative was excellent. The Dr. has a lot of professional ethics and knowledge to spare in the matter. I even loved that he had no problem caring for such a large dog (Pitbull 110 lbs). We are happy to find the perfect place for our 4-legged daughter. Eternally grateful.

I have been going to Oscar at Coral Way Animal Clinic for 13 years. He has taken care of my three dogs since day 1 and I trust him with my eyes closed. Oscar and his team are hands-down the most professional, caring and knowledgeable in the business. He has saved my animals on many occasions from illness, accidents or disease. He is a fantastic surgeon and and expert diagnostician. In the last few months he was instrumental in diagnosing my dog’s cancer, skillfully removing the tumors, and getting treatment through cancer vaccine that’s now available. Paws crossed… we are on our way to recovery since it’s been 4 months with no remission. In addition, I’ve always been able to teach them in emergency cases, and even counted on middle-of-the-night help. Coral Way is like family to us for treating us with such amazing care!

It is a small clinic and parking is very limited. But the Doctor is very knowledgeable and very helpful. They also have very helpful friendly and accommodating staff.

If I could give 10 stars to Coral Way Animal Clinic I would! I went in thinking that my baby girl Mia had a simple stomach virus but after blood work was done, it showed that her kidneys were not doing good at all. We never lost hope and left her in the vets hands for a few days knowing that anything could of happened. With everyone’s dedication Mia was doing so much better in just a few days. Every single person that works in this location on 27th is AMAZING. We still continue with her recommended treatments and she is a Completely new dog. Thank you so much for what you all have done!!

Excellent care has been provided to our cat Zorro who was injured and had an infected wound. They welcomed us as a walk-in and provided needed care including surgery. He is in recovery and we trust that he is in good hands.

I went to this veterinarian with my pup for X vaccine, but was erroneously administered Y vaccine. This seemed shocking to me considering that I asked the veterinary technician twice whether the vaccine administered was X, and was reassured both times. Regardless, I came in the next day to get the correct vaccine administered, and was then met with an additional charge for the vaccine. They were trying to charge me for a vaccine that they should have administered the day before, but due to a professional mistake, failed to do so. When speaking to the vet about the charge, he spoke over me, contradicted himself several times, and refused to accept his mistake. The guy barely let me get a word in between his convoluted explanations. This doesn't even account for them charging me for a "physical" when all they did is vital signs and an injection, AKA a follow-up. A ridiculous cash grab. Mind you, they won't even ask for nor record your pet's medical history, even for a first time visit. This would've been a simple way to prevent this mishap, but is yet another sign of their negligence. The experience was unprofessional and dispiriting. I've been to vets in the past who have admitted to and resolved their errors in a professional, courteous, and prompt manner. This was not my experience at Coral Way Animal Clinic and I strongly recommend looking elsewhere for your pet's care.

A friend of mine recently had her new dog seen here. I was so appalled from the story I was told about the experience that I feel pulled to warn fellow animal owners. Not only did the Vet supply the technician with the incorrect vaccine (after 3 separate verbal confirmations regarding the correct vaccine) but the vet also refused to acknowledge this mistake a day later when returning for the correct vaccine. Additionally, the vet claimed to only charge $50 for an animal to be seen during the very first visit to the clinic; however, the dog had been seen there once before and at the second visit (with incorrect vaccine admin.) he billed $50 again. When this was brought to his attention he talked circles around himself and talked over his clients. The Vet is not only negligent, but also very slimy when it comes to billing. When my friend mentioned the second $50 charge (which is according to the vet a one-time charge) he unprofessionally said the extra $ would "cover the dog's next visit". Safe to say my friend will never return to this clinic and I advise you all to steer clear.

This veterinarian after your first visit will try to get as much money from you as possible and this is my opinion.

My boyfriend and I recently moved from New York and bought two 10 week old puppies from a breeder. I had wanted to rescue but couldn’t find any small dogs in the area. I was hoping that if I got them from the breeder they would be very healthy dogs who were taken care of. Unfortunately, I was very wrong. I brought them to a different vet in North Miami and found out they had two parasites, gerardio and coccidia. They weren’t able to treat them so I had to go somewhere else. I was highly recommended to Coral Way Animal Clinic by a coworker and let’s just say they have gone above and beyond to help my two little puppies. I had to keep them at the clinic for a week so they could get treated from the parasites. Then soon after found out that they also had parvo and kettle cough. I felt like my whole world was falling apart but Doctor Paez and his daughter Leo, Doctor Paez’s sister, Chey and the rest of the staff members there have treated my two puppies as they’re own. They answer my 50 calls a day and take time to answer ALL my questions. Both Chey ans Leo, would constantly text me videos and pictures of both my puppies while they were staying at the clinic and answer my calls and texts on their days off. I have texted and called the doctor on his days off. He answers me and comes in if the dogs need to be looked at right away. One night, at midnight I was sobbing because one of my dogs Winston didn’t stop coughing. I texted him a video and called him and he said to bring him in right away. He gave him some medicine that calmed him immediately and the next day found out he had kettle cough. I was beyond thankful that he woke up to leave his house to come in and treat my puppy. My dogs are now two very healthy and happy puppy’s and would not have been able to get through all of this without the doctor and his amazing team!! I still text and call them with questions and they ALWAYS respond to me right away and I’m so thankful to have found such an amazing clinic I can trust my babies with!!! If I could give him way more than 5 stars I would!! I’m beyond great full and would highly recommend this doctor to anyone and even want me family in NY who have dogs to fly over just to go to him!!

TW - GRAPHIC PICTURES ATTACHED: I found Coral Way Animal Clinic on November 12, 2020. I remember this date exactly because it was the day that my 20 lb. terrier mix Lucas was horribly attacked by another dog. I used to take my dog to Banfield but they do not handle emergencies and now I will only take him to Coral Way Animal Clinic. The staff treated Lucas, me, and my family just like a family. They knew how to keep us calm and were open and honest with us from the beginning. They had to remove a small bone that the dog broke in his collar bone, due to the bite being so bad and infectious, he had to be restitched again - all, in all, Lucas had to stay with them for almost a month and they did everything they could & did save him. Oscar, Leo, Elisa, and Victor were exactly what my family and Lucas needed. I recommend them 10/10.

I’ve never seen a vet that cares just about our dog, Dusty, as they do at Coral Way Animal Clinic. We are very happy we found someone we trust to make sure he’s healthy and happy

We found Coral Way Animal clinic after searching google for a vet with good reviews in the area. We couldn’t have had a better experience. Dr. Paez-Castro and his staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. They made us and our 1 year old baby feel comfortable. Scheduling was easy and upon arrival, there was no lengthy wait time to be seen. Dusty will be sticking with his new friends at Coral Way Animal Clinic.

Really love this clinic. They treat you like family. Dr. Paez and the staff are super nice and really care for the patients. The prices are reasonable they even explained to us about the differences between insurance companies. We came here for an emergency and now they are our regular vet clinic.

I can not begin to describe how wonderful Coral Way Animal Clinic is. The staff is so friendly, the Vet techs are amazing and so friendly. Dr. Oscar Paez-Castro was amazing. He was so good with our fur baby, he took the time with us to explain everything. The office is beautiful and I am so happy we found Coral Way Animal Clinic! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a New Vet!!

Diamond came into my life when she was only 2 months old and now after 13 years she is showing signs of illness. My heart was broken that my companion for 13 years was ill but Dr. Oscar and his amazing team did everything right there and gave me a peace of mind that my Diamond was in great hands and they would take the best care of her. Thank you to Dr. Oscar for your compassion and outstanding care for Diamond.
