I called for advice on flying with my cat, the person on the phone laughed at me and basically dismissed my concern out of hand. I hung up without making an appointment and also without a straight answer.

This place is really for the animals and not the money. This is the ONLY place in all of North Jersey that was willing to do payment plans for me. Their prices are fair as well...i highly recommend!!

Awful. His wife and staff terrible. He is inadequate and needs to retire. I'd never recommend or take an animal there. Pathetic!

Dr. Samson is an excellent veterinarian and very knowledgeable. He takes good care of our HIV positive cat, a semi-feral, "tough guy" (the cat, that is) who is less than thrilled to see any vet. Dr. Samson is very patient with him.

Dr Samson is a very competent surgeon and he has never lost a cat of mine on the operating table. However, a senior cat went into kidney failure and died a few weeks after a dental. Don't avoid the the presurgical bloodwork and consider the risks before doing dentals or unnecessary surgery on senior pets. Also, he routinely uses fluoride treatments when he does dentals. Fluoride is highly toxic to people and animals and should not be used, especially for pets, as it's ingested and not rinsed out. He's a good surgeon but lax on recommending some bloodwork and doing non invasive procedures such as ultrasounds, and has missed detecting certain issues. Always do your own homework on pet care, do full diagnostics, get a 2nd and 3rd opinion if warranted and use natural supplements and treatments whenever possible. Ok but not progressive. Hours are very limited and getting an appointment in an emergency is impossible.

Dr Samson is a excellent Vet. He has taken care of 8 cats and several dogs of ours throughout the years including saving 1 cats life after getting hit by a car. He is worth every penny for excellent care and will take the time to explain the issue and treatment with you.

I adopted my cat from pet smart early January of this year. She began throwing up every few days and showed no other symptoms. After spending a small fortune at Verona Animal Hospital with no success, I brought her here from the recommendation of a coworker. What a Godsend! Dr. Samson explained everything step by step, examined my cat carefully from head to toe, performed a fecal test and sample of the vomit, and prescribed 2 medications. His prices were beyond reasonable for everything he did! Plus, he reviewed the previous vet's X-rays and was able to read the supposedly "inconclusive" images. He is wise and puts the well-being of your pet first. He even called to follow up and discuss treatment for IBD which is what I had suspected my cat had all along. I spent hours doing research on my cat's condition and everything dr. Samson said was congruent with what I read. I am just so happy to finally find a doctor as compassionate and knowledgeable as him!!! my cat is doing great!!!!

worst animal clinic, the receptionist is extremely rude, and the whole clinic uses outdated equipment. Many items are expired, and they overcharge highly for basic care. Go elsewhere for better care for your animals and your wallet.
