Knowledgeable, definitely professional, thorough and considerate, gave call re: test results same day. Handling covid well. Park in front, call to let them know you're there and meet in entry foyer or put your cat carrier in foyer on stand. Had to figure this out myself.

Not a terrible clinic for cats.

This clinic seems very fast to insist that my cat friend be put on gabapentin. Dr. Wy-whatever did not do a good job with her bedside manner. She did not take the time to explain if this medication is safe for my cat/how it works/absolutely necessary. Services here are very expensive and I'm curious if this pharmaceutical drug is really necessary for a routine check up when my cat hasn't bitten anyone/hasn't scratched anyone. When I brought up the hypothetical, devils advocate question: what if I myself was addicted to illegal substances, is it best practice to keep pushing gabapentin on me and my cat? The doc became very flustered and was unable to field this potential problem. Pharmaceutical anti-anxiety meds for my cat is a very new and strange idea for me. I'd suggest that you guys introduce it more slowly and respectfully. Also, please take the time to slowly and thoroughly explain how to collect a cat urine sample. Please do not rush through speaking with me again, as I paid over 300 dollars for today's visit. Thank you.

They know cats, it's all they do. They have access to all the best lab testing and procedures even if you need to be referred elsewhere for things like nuclear medicine (my cat needed radioactive iodine for thyroid, issues). They are not the cheapest, but it's a marginal difference considering the care they provide. Expect that they WILL figure out what is wrong with your cat, then treat and extend your cat's life, but it will cost money for the proper testing and treatments. Medicines and prescription foods can often be ordered off Amazon or Chewy for a bit less money.

My partner and I brought our 5 year old cat, Raava, in for a check-up, for what we thought was loose stool. The team at Summer Street saw her presenting with signs of a life threatening illness. She needed to have emergency surgery to save her life. We were terrified because she is our baby, and they aren’t an emergency vet. They asked to put us on a brief hold and then they came back and told us that they made a bunch of calls to local vets to see who was available, and ended up coordinating to have (I believe) the head vet of the practice herself come in - on her day off - to perform emergency surgery in the morning. Because we are still operating under pandemic rules, we had to hand Raava off in the lobby and couldn't accompany her to the appointment. The surgery wouldn't be until morning, so they would be keeping her overnight, and we were beside ourselves thinking "what if something happens and, without knowing it, that was the last time we got to see Raava?" Summer Street recognized this and asked if we would like to take her home with us, and bring her back in the morning. It was a difficult choice, but we decided it would be least stressful for Raava if Summer Street kept her overnight. They explained everything that would happen between that moment and the surgery, as well as afterward, and were patient with all of our questions. They told us the cost up front, explained how or why it would change and what the range would likely be, and then offered to explain Care Credit to us if we could not afford it. The surgery was a success and Raava now has had her sutures removed, and is going back for a second follow-up. She is happier and healthier than ever. They are also helping us figure out a plan to help her gain a healthier body composition, while dealing with her extremely fussy older brother's food preferences. While I want to emphasize they do not perform emergency services, so this experience is not something you should approach them expecting, I want to give credit where credit is due and say they really went above and beyond and probably saved our little girl’s life. The details are fuzzy because we are so upset, so I don't remember the vet's name, but everyone at the practice was lovely, from reception to the vets themselves. Bonus: they had “Mx.” as an option for a prefix (to address the cat parent/owner) so I didn’t have to deal with being misgendered on top of being worried about our little bean. 10/10 highly recommend. And thank you so much.

They are so caring and really do their best to take care of your furry friend... I am truly devastated to say that I lost my best friend in the world recently... he was my companion, my rock, my comfort and I was the same for him... they did everything they could to try to save him... but sadly the universe thought it was time to take him home ????... Its been one of the hardest things to go through and it was so heartwarming to receive a thoughtful written card in the mail from them offering their condolences. Good caring people here ❤

Got my first cat and really only chose this clinic because it's close to where I live, but it's a very nice place! I've had to take my cat to some appointments there a couple times because he has some health issues and the people there were very nice and patient, explaining everything and giving great advice. Their covid safety precautions are great as well, I feel very safe whenever I have to stop by to pick up meds or for an appointment. Highly recommend choosing this clinic for your kitty!

THE STAFF HERE IS AMAZING! I was looking for someone to look at my cat who wasn't looking good and was losing weight rapidly. I called several offices and no one would see us. I was referred to the pet ER over and over but they were expensive and didnt listen! Very frustrating. Finally i called here and immediately the women here made me feel like we were going to be ok. They are friendly, compassionate, and actually listen. I was able to get my cat in within 2 days ( during COV19). I havent ever really felt any feelings towards past vets because they're average care, average service nothing to be noted but theres much to note here I appreciated the care and service. This was the first time I've experienced a sincere fear for my animal and we were both handled with great care and empathy. I am switching all my pets here. If you want a family feel PICK SCS.

I came during social distancing and they were super professional and had an amazing system in place to keep everyone safe. They explained everything they were doing even though I couldn't come in, and gave me a full report. They also didn't push me to do anything I didn't want to do in regards to treatment, which I appreciate greatly. They also took really good care of my cat and were able to help her out.

First time cat owner, went here because it was close and had good reviews and it was thenbest decision we could've made. Doctors and techs are incredibly friendly and kind, truly care about your cat and their well being. They're very knowledgeable, were able to answer any and every question we had, but also aren't pushy, they make suggestions but if you don't wanna do something they don't make you feel bad about it, they accept it and move. Will suggest anyone who has a kitty in need of a vet to go here!

The caring team here helped my cat, Doomhammer, when his liver was failing. They’ve always worked with me and my budget to give him the best possible care. I’ve never felt pressured to get unnecessary tests or do anything that’s not in his best interest. Every time I refill his meds, they ask how he’s doing. I can’t thank them enough for helping me through his health crisis. Because of them, I still have my cat ????

I started with them when they first opened back in '81 and they were wonderful. I haven't been a client for many years but had occasion to use them this week while cat-sitting for friends. Their quality of service and concern has only improved with the years. I highly recommend them.
