On my recent trip to Maui I finally decided this would be the one we would bring our 9 year old Maltese with us. We travel quite often with him, so it was always a bummer when we left him before for the months we were in Maui. I unfortunately got his FAVN tests done before getting in touch with Karen, but once this round expires, I will for sure go through Kihei Vet Clinic to get it renewed because I was easily paying 3x as much. Karen was super responsive from the get go, I was right on the edge of the 30 days for the direct release and she clarified all the docs needed and kept close contact as I hustled around town and made phone calls to get the proper docs. Everything worked out just fine and we were able to take the flight on the day as planned. She checked in the week of to make sure we were all set one last time, as once you're on the plane with all the right docs the hard part is over. We made it to Maui and right after we made it through the jetway we met up with Nicole who took our paperwork, scanned our dog, and we were off on our way to get our bags. I am so glad that I found Karen and team, it really took the stress of the "what ifs" out of the experience and I will definitely be working with them moving forward for all our future trips. I also made a quick visit to their vet office for an update on vaccines and they were super friendly and attentive. It's nice to know we have a trusted vet out here in Maui when we're on island.

Very disappointed with Kihei Veterinary Clinic. We were questioning them about my cat who had a dark ring around his nose after spending $1K last week. The receptionist Lexie told me to email them a picture. I called to verify email address. Safron answered and said there would be another $50 office visit fee. Safron was extremely hostile putting me in defensive mode. The Office Manager Jessica emailed me a letter stating they no longer wanted my service. They were basing their opinion of me from a Veterinarian visit several years ago from a Midwest State. How unethical! In fact Jessica called my home State Veterinarian today to let them know I might call them to verify their so-called "complaints." WHAT?? I feel I was totally mistreated by Safron and Jessica and for what purpose? Is this all about control? This was evident when they called my previous Veterinarian to put me down further! I found these individuals to be lacking understanding and VERY cold. I don't understand how they can work with our precious fur babies! I am very upset that no cameras are allowed in the exam rooms to watch the work being done. When I picked up my pet after a couple hours he was traumatized. I had to hold him and cradle him and comfort him after this experience.

$200 just to look at your dog for 20 minutes prior to a flight to the mainland and tell me that she needs a rabies shot...that she got 8 months ago.

Friendly staff, easy getting appointment, and appointment was on time. No waiting. A little expensive but what isn't on Maui...

Currently doing curbside service due to COVID. However, not very many details of my pet's exam were shared. It's great that he's healthy, but exam notes and details would be better since we can't go in and their zoom option wasn't working.

These guys are wonderful, you can trust them with your loved pup or kitty. They're still strict on CoVID-19 restrictions, but they're very good about getting to you in the parking lot quickly as you wait in your vehicle or they have two small benches on their deck which you can sit. I can't think of enough nice things to say about these people, but they're incredibly kind to be giving such love during such restrictive times.

They were great! The entire COVID procedure was a little confusing in the beginning, maybe it was the emergency that happened as well, but overall my beagle came back tail wagging and happy! I'm a happy client ????

We have been going to Kihei Vet for over 5 years, and I never write reviews. However, the amount of compassion and care we've received during this difficult time with our pup has been invaluable. Dr. Hellsen and the staff here have been wonderful and responsive and it's been truly appreciated.

Moving to Maui Karen and team made the complicated direct release process simple. So excited for the move and happy to have found our vet!

Maui calls to a variety of people, no small number of them dog owners. The process is neither simple, nor inexpensive, but it assures your animal is in top health when joining the island population. Karen and the team at Kihei Veterinary Clinic made this process run as smooth as silk. The value lies in the preparation and process-guidance assistance provided. With Karen's help, the complex process back East as well as interaction with the state of Hawaii went off without issue. I had all my paperwork ready for the friendly folks at Hawaiian Airlines who spirited Liam The Dog away with great care. LTD was with Karen before I even had my suitcases! Cheers to Hawaiian Airlines and Karen H. from Kihei Veterinary Clinic!!! One last comment: folks, note that all this was done days before the novel coronavirus drove the shut-down and quarantine periods - AND - it was all accomplished with the appropriate PPE before anyone was told they should use it. Well done folks, well done.

Dr. Leaper is a great vet. You can tell he really cares for your pets well being. If you are moving to island from the mainland Karen is the best person to work with. She answered all my questions and helped me through the whole process. Met us at the gate to clear our dog. She is really nice. Front desk ladies and the vet tech girls are nice as well.

This place is awesome , every time I go here the service is quick and easy. Also Karen makes it extremely easy to get your pet to and from Hawaii. It is not an easy process to get them into Hawaii but she makes it simple.

Karren Hannie at Kihei Veterinary Clinic recently helped me with my relocation to Maui by assisting me with getting my cat through the immediate release process. She worked with me sometimes daily to get the correct paperwork and procedures handled. She cooperated with my vet in Houston to make sure all proper paperwork was coordinated. Then she met me at the gate and had an immediate release to me. I cant say enough about how she helped me get through a stressful move with my furry baby.

We recently relocated our Boston Terrier from Colorado to Maui and Karen made the process as smooth and stress free as possible! There is so much to juggle and she remained so thorough and helpful through it all! They definitely gained a new puppy patient for all of our vet needs!! Mahalo Kihei Vet Hospital!

This vet clinic has been around for quite some time and has lived up to its reputation as being a hospital institution to bring your pets. The techs were knowledgeable and the doctor was super nice. One star off as I felt the general examination wasn't as thorough as I would have liked. Overall a good experience.
