My family had always gone to Dr. Sackman for their cats. I just moved back to Frankfort after living out of state for 7 years. In that 7 years, I got my dog. I have been to a few vets in two other states, and I have never met someone so thorough in the information and explanation that they gave. I appreciate it so much and know I can trust her completely. Additionally, the entire staff was sweet and so professional.

Great place. Dr. Really cares about your pet! Takes time to explain and does not try and upcharge everything. Best vet around

My experience at the office was very professionally done. I would recommend her to everyone with a pet. Time was taken for my dog to get to know her so he relaxed with her. She answered all of my questions and was not rushing in and out of the room.

Had an emergency, was told to bring my dog in at 4pm but might not get to her until 8pm because they needed to see regular patients and that I should wait in lobby. Dr. Sackman has been the dogs doctor since 3 weeks old, we are a patient! Frankfort animal care made the time for us and is now our new vet.

Dr. Dawn has been our Vet for about 20yrs. She saved the life of my brothers dog Gretta, extended the life of my dog Kelly and now takes great care of our current dog Louie. She is so knowledgable and goes above and beyond expectations of a Vet. We love Her, the new location and her staff. It says something positive about a practice that keeps the same staff for years. Tracy is amazing!

Appointment only but they took in my dog on my first visit. Dr. Sackman is great. Diagnosed the problem correctly and Rudy is doing great.

We have used Sackman for many years and highly recommend her and her staff. She has taken care of many of my dogs and I have always experienced nothing but professional care. Dr. Sackman always returns calls and if she is busy she is sure to have one of her staff return the call. She always fits in a sick dog and goes out of her way to do so. We love her new location and office... beautiful!

We have our fur baby's cared for by Dr. Sackman for over 13 years. The staff and her are the most caring and kind people I know. The care has always been excellent.

LOVE Sackman's Animal Hosiptal and the staff! They are always willing to get my pup in and when we arrive my 2 boys and I are treated like family. At previous vet offices he always would coward in the corner at any appointment, Not here! I couldn't ask for a better experience and better group of staff. I highly recommend them to everyone! Look no further!

My family has had all of our animals (over 7) treated at Sackman Animal Hospital since their opening in 2000. We are customers and not related to Dr. Sackman and are very satisfied with her as our veterinarian. Dr. Sackman is a very competent veterinarian and treats every one of our animals as if they were her own. For those reviewers who say she is "always on vacation or absent," my family has never had any problem scheduling appointments that work with our schedule. Dr. Sackman has helped our animals through allergies, spaying/neutering, as well as common injuries and life-saving surgeries. She is tactful and caring especially when it came time to have to put two of our animals down. She takes her time and always explains what she has found in layman's terms so you always can understand the diagnosis and options. Her staff is efficient and helpful, and her office is always clean and tidy. Dr. Sackman is attentive, caring and very good at her job.

Dr. Sackman is wonderful. I don't understand all the 1 stars people give out because she is booked and they haven't even gone to her. Her love of animals is obvious when you see her with your pet and she is very thorough.

Doc is always "out of the office" or "busy" hard to get an appt which worries me for if my pet gets really sick and wait time takes forever. She does love animals, that is clear, but it takes more than love sometimes to be a good vet/Dr.

I went to look for Dr. Sackman's office number and happened to see the low ratings for her and had to stop to review her. I do not work for Dr. Sackman. Nor am I friends with her or a relative. She simpy is our vet. I/we have had four dogs and four cats for many years, so needless to say we've seen her for various things over the course of 12 years. I've never found her to be anything but caring, attentive and down to earth. If she can't get you "in", many times they will offer for you to drop the animal off and Dr. Sackman will examine them in between surgeries or appointments and call you with what she's found. She never "does" anything without calling you first, sensitive to cost factors for most people. She always gives us the facts and options and lets us decide. Never is pushy or judgmental about what you should or shouldn't do for your animal. Her staff is always considerate and compassionate. I just wanted to post another side to the story.

I started going to Dr. Sackman when I got my Labrador puppy in 2008. From the start, my dog had awful allergies and would break out in hives and hot spots often. Dr. Sackman is our hero! She saved my dog's life on several occasions, squeezing us in when a random reaction would occur, or on a day that she was booked, offering to let me bring my dog in so she could look at her in between appointments. Dr. Sackman IS the only veterinarian at this clinic, so if she is booked she will try her hardest to fit in a sick animal if she is able to. I now have two cats that I rescued and Dr. Sackman has helped me get both of them back into a healthy condition from when I got them. The clinic is very family-like. The techs and Doctor know their clients, are highly informative, and are extremely caring. I recommend this clinic and doctor to anyone that wants thorough, quality, pet care. You cannot expect a doctor, who knows nothing about your pet (size, weight, health condition, etc) to give you an estimate for a surgery over the phone. There are things that come into play when giving an estimate, in which the animal needs to be seen first. It would not be an honest estimate without knowing the condition of your pet.

FIRST I WANT TO POINT OUT THE ONLY GOOD REVIEW IS FROM AN EMPLOYEE AT SACKMANS!!! I find it funny that a previous customer said she was always on vacation. I always had trouble getting my pets into her office because she was ALWAYS on a trip. She is almost barely there. She is an incompetent vet. She did not have something so simple as a blood pressure cuff?! As a result I lost my pet because she was not able to do her job. I am writing this not to bash her, but to warn people of her misdiagnosis to both of my animals. I am now dealing with my other sick animal's condition because she did not do proper testing on him as well. She is also more pricey than vets around the area if you are curious about pricing. Please protect your animals.
