What a disappointment. I will never bring my cat back to this location ever again. If I could give them no stars I would..more details to follow…. at this point Im so angry and upset I can’t even write about my experience with this place … there’s maybe 1 nice technician in an office full of inconsiderate A$$!?@… they should be ashamed. Never again ….

Terrible service. Can't get blood test results for over a week. The cat got worse. Don't go there if you want to save your pet's life.

I was pretty skeptical about this place at first but after the great interaction with the staff and doctor I must say they are all respectful and very helpful. My cat Mr. Bane was suffering from severe allergies and they did everything in their power to make sure his allergies issues were resolved. I definitely recommend going here , thought the wait times may be long due to high capacity of clients because a lot of people come here for the great service I must say its so worth it

Never go to this place! The attitude of the owner is just not respectful and absolutely not professional! I brought cats just to do a vaccines, the doctor came after 2 hours waiting in the lobby full of people. My cats are old and I was worried if it’s ok to do both vaccines in same time (because cats need two vaccines for international flight). The doctor said - let’s see and left to prepare the vaccines. She back with only rabies vaccine and while I took the cat out of the bag I asked again if we have to do two different vaccines in same time or in different days, the doctor said that she doesn’t know the answer and we can only find out if it’s fine for them after we do vaccines…so I said - how? Two see if the die from it or not?. She said- well, it can happen even from a one vaccine. I was very surprised that this is all that doctor could say and she even didn’t see my cats, did not touch them, didn’t check anything. I said her that, that she didn’t even check anything and just saying it’s up to me if I want to do one vaccine or both….she said that now she is uncomfortable to work with us and left the room and didn’t explain anything . After waiting for about 15min nobody came to the room, so I came out to ask the nurse if there anything else can do vaccines or what is going on. There was 3 nurses who just got so nervous, walked back and forth talking with the doctor who was hiding in her room and then a guy told me that our appointment just canceled and we won’t get any service in this place and have to leave! And this is after waiting 2 hours in a lobby and 30 min in a room. Of course I was so confused, it’s was difficult to bring two cats and wait that long specially while Covid. So I just asked if any other doctor can do us a vaccines and they said - no, We will call the police if you not leave. I said- sure :) When police came they recommended us where to tell about this situation, so it’s nice I got important information. Just unprofessional people working there. Who was fine to leave animals in danger, didn’t want to check them just because the doctor didn’t like the way I asked her questions ….just unbelievable! Terrible!

My dog, there patient for at least past 10 years, died today. I’m heartbroken, and if you ever had a dog, you’d understand my grief. But not these people. I came over to tell them that she’s gone, and no one even asked why, and doctor didn’t come out to express condolences. It’s been said that you mostly remember things that are in the end. So I’ll never forget this coldness. And if I’ll ever get another dog, I’ll never trust him to these people.

They don't care about your pets, they care about the money. My family dog was brought here over 3 years ago and now my dogs timespan of a short time to live, all because they didn't let me know what was wrong with my dog. I'm so hurt and how much money I've wasted.

I advise you all to stay away from this clinic because they make up their own prices.

Most bad reviews are based off of prices (which they have no control over) and waiting times due to pandemic and being short staffed. Honestly very professional place, I see a lot of a care for the animals . They try to do alternative treatment plans if you have a limited budget. And most important allowing at least one client in the exam rooms with their pets! If you can’t afford basic treatments to make sure your pet is healthy without making an assumption by looking at them, then don’t get a pet or get pet insurance otherwise don’t complain due to ur financial problems. At the end of the day they went to vet school due to passion and care of animal health. If they really cared about money as most people assume they do they could’ve worked with human medicine which has a greater pay. I highly recommend this place especially if interested in ear crops! Wait time is a good hour at most which isn’t bad considering i wait 3 hours at my regular physicians office just to discuss bloodwork which is a total of 10 minute appointment. You can either choose to come to this clinic where the doctors will advocate for your pet properly which would or can include getting diagnostic testing(s) (which is understandably expensive) or u can choose to go to a different vet where they give treatments without proper analysis of the internal outlook which can be a hit or miss to your pets care.

The staff and vets at Oceanside have provided me with nothing but positive things to say. As soon as I came in, I was greeted by the sweet receptionists and waited my turn. The wait time is just about what is expected, 15-30 minutes. The office is busy and attentive to emergencies, walk-ins so I understand why there may be a bit of wait but that's why it's called the waiting room! My cat who is 17 years old was seen by the vet fairly quickly. As a pet owner to an older cat, I was nervous but the vet and his staff were so reassuring and gentle. The techs were incredibly attentive to everything I brought up and it showed that they cared about my cat as much as I did. The doctor himself was fabulous. He paid keen attention to detail and although my cat was fussy and grumpy, he managed to get his blood and urine in no time. Once my cats results came in, the doctor thoroughly explained everything to me. I've read reviews about prices but having gone to different clinics, Oceanside prices have been cheaper than what I've paid in the past. Highly recommend this clinic to everyone! Keep this in mind: Since the pandemic, more pets have been adopted and vet clinics have been jam packed. Be kind and patient with your veterinarian staff and understand that they care about your pets as much as you do.

My mistake I disregarded the comments below ! Horrible doctor and his personal attitude ! He basically sees things through dollar bill not as it is in nature. Because I told him no for treatment that was harmful for my puppy he refused to see my dog for the vaccination next time. He just wants things his way, I am not sure how he was granted the license then. Totally unprofessional and goes by money only, personal attitude is his first care!!!!!!! Dear Oceanside Animal Clinic, thank you for your prompt response but canceling my appointment based on doctor prejudices is illegal. You just rejected me to come for test and vaccination , about what professional qualities you are talking then ?When I came first I clearly explain that before necessary vaccination I must do deworming as my dog a special breed so I need to follow the breeder instructions too. I didn’t refuse to do vaccination in 10 days after deworming and confined that dog would stay in house to avoid any possible contacts with other animals. There was no urgent and must do requirement to vaccinate my dog on a spot and when Doctor wanted. Based on most reviews doctor has a high tendency to cancel patients who decline spendings and his unnecessary treatments. He might have been paying a high mortgage for his house or a car so he desperately needed money. His attitude doesn’t seem to be professional and he didn’t show any experiences vet qualities as disregarded the breed requirement. My dog is not just puppy from the local zoo shop, I bought it from experienced breeders to train as hunting dog. I would highly recommend to Doctor reconsider his work place and his personal negligence to patient needs. If he took that field for money making, he was a bit wrong. This case needs to be seen by authorities to review doctor’s practice and interaction with owners of pets.

There’s really no point in making an appointment for your pet because you’ll be waiting an hour and a half for your pet to actually be seen. There prices are beyond ridiculous. They will do anything to get their money. Never again will I come to this place. Do your pet or pets a favor and go somewhere else.

Simply put do NOT go here. They say they open at 930. Well the vet gets there at 11am. Actually arrived at 1130. I was first and between vet finally looking at my pet it was 1140. The receptionist shows up half later of me waiting in the room with the bill. Bills paid and then another 20 mins later they give eye drops. NOT ENOUGH STAFF. NOT ENOUGH MANAGEMENT SKILL. DO NOT GO. YOU WILL SPEND 5 HRS HERE.

Money hungry Vets! Brought my 17-year-old cat in for a haircut and the vet refused to let her get groomed without bloodwork and X-ray. He said it's for her health that should have been started at 10. Today she is 7 years older and absolutely no way that she will get a cut until I agree to pay for the unnecessary procedure. He didn’t even offer to say, this is the last time we can groom her without all the tests. I have a very healthy cat that gets shots and check up on regular basis. How is it that out of nowhere she cant get groomed without X-rays and bloodwork? I know! The vets need to rip people off for anything and everything, not because they actually care about my cat, but because they need money.

My first experience was fine, when my animals were brought there for vaccination. However, yesterday I brought one of them to get checked out as there was an issue that animal seem to suffer from for couple of days and my usual vet has canceled the appointment a week before. At this clinic, they asked to do x-rays and tried to charge for x-rays, anesthetic and overnight stay with total being $650 without overnight stay. (I compared with another clinic right after and anesthetic is not required, you can restrain animal without it and for it not to cause pain) I have asked to possibly work something out as I am on a limited budget. Or at least cut out items from the list. Again, I compared it with another vet who told me certain things could have been avoided. This clinic's staff refused and on top of it they upset me and my animal great deal. Then they would not bring my animal out. I was about to call the police to be able to retrieve my animal. These people are in the business of caring for animals and they have shown zero of that. I saw them attempt to do the same to another animal's owner. I did my best to negotiate with them, to be polite and courteous and was not treated in the same courteous and polite manner. If I could give zero stars or even minus 4 stars I would. Avoid them.

Horrible horrible horrible! They are not what I would call a vet they are just a business and only in it for the money They make you do all these tests without explaining why and then charge insane prices For nothing They told me one of my dogs had ear mites and I took him to another vet that same day and he didn’t They also told me they were going to give my puppy a vaccine bec he was dehydrated and gave me a list of things over $400!!!!! To just blindly a free to pay for without explanation I left on the spot and took him to 2 other vets who said he was fine One gave him some Pedialyte and enercal and he was good in an hour Don not use this vet they are the biggest scammers

I booked a 11:30 am appointment and then sat there for more than an hour. Saw my dog at 1pm. People will walk in and be seen while you are still sitting waiting for your appointment. No one says anything to you while you sit and wait patiently. When you ask after sitting for an hour they act like you are bothering the reception desk. With the over crowding there is no social distancing as they over crowd the schedule. This causes all the appointments and walk-in’s to be in a small space. Be professional and do not overbook and then give attitude when I call you out.

Was coming to the male vet for years with my Yorkie. The staff is great and I was happy with the doctor, until one day I came for a scheduled appointment to do bloodwork for my dog, and the doctor refused to do bloodwork unless I agreed to do vaccinations for my dog. That is absolutely ridiculous that someone should be forced to do vaccinations if you’re coming in and paying for a specific service. Vaccination is required for grooming in NYC, but not mandatory for anything else. Very disappointed with this businessman. Not a real doctor.. do not recommend

They don’t care about well-being of your pet, they only care about collecting your money. They put my dog on an outdated monthly heart worm & tick product that no other vet carries. They ran out of the product I have been purchasing from them for 2 years. Advised me over the phone I now need to order the product from Chewy online and they would confirm the order. I explained this was urgent as the dog was missing her regular date to take the product. When Chewy reached out they declined the order explaining they need to see the dog for an exam. They did not contact me to inform they declined the prescription. Now this office has delayed my dog taking her scheduled medicine by four days, and she is nowhere close to getting the medicine.
