I have taken many foster animals to several different vets in the city, and Cooper Square is one of my favorites. Dr. G is an excellent doctor and gives great care. My dog has several medical issues and she is not an easy patient, behavior-wise, and all the staff are all wonderful. Because it's a small hospital she is able to have the same doctor and staff each time. I recommend Cooper Square to everyone who asks.

I’ve been going to Dr G since 2015 and all 4 of my pets go to see him (one cat, 3 dogs). He is very New York City kind of person- kind of gruff, very direct but ultimately extremely kind… the most important thing is of course that he is extremely skilled at taking care of your pet. My puppy had a serious infection and almost died and Dr G saved him. I would highly recommend him to anyone. It’s costly but I don’t think anymore than any other high quality vet. Owning a pet is a huge financial responsibility and when you go to Dr G, you know you are getting the highest value for what you spend.

I just heard the way the doctor was talking to his workers about patients and was shocked. So disrespectful. Wouldn't want to give them any business.

Walked in and walked out. Had such an unpleasant experience. The vet is abrupt and insulting. People who goes there probably like to be treated badly.

Great, professional veterinary hospital. They took my dog right away to get X-rays and remained super calm (therefore keeping me calm). The prices are super reasonable and i couldn’t recommend them more highly!!

Dr. G and his staff are great. I’ve been taking my cats to him for 17 years. He’s very nice but also very straight forward and no nonsense, which I appreciate. I’m not the most conscientious cat owner. I should bring them in more often, feed them better food, etc. Dr. G looks after them without shaming me! Highly recommend.

Dr. John truly cares about his clients and their furry family members. He calls to check up after illnesses and that means a lot. Professional, extremely educated and caring. The total package in healthcare for my pet

I love Dr Gagliardi and his staff. He tells it like it is and has given great care to both my cat and dog. ^.^

Absolutely the very best vet in NYC. Dr. G has taken care of all four of the dogs I have had over the last 15 years. Additionally he does a lot of work for rescues and is very caring. Very nice staff too

Very confusing because the staff is so nice but the vet is horrifically rude and dismissive. We didn’t even want to bring our cats here but had to because we are fostering to adopt.

- went there to have my pets ready to travel on a plane but they never updated on the process after my visit so I switched to a different, more professional vet (still got charged a ridiculous amount even though they did nothing lol) …

Best vet ever. I have been taking my dog there for 15 years. He met her as a puppy and now she is an “old lady”. I have met many vets in my life but no one as good as him. He has an intuitive touch, my dog always felt much better after visiting him. I highly recommend him - and his charges are very reasonable for NYC.

Hands down the best vet clinic in NYC. I cannot recommend Dr. Gagliardi and his team highly enough. We have been taking our dog here since he was a puppy (he's now 1) and they've always gone above and beyond - calling us after hours to give test results, answering emails on a Sunday when they are closed, offering advice if there are no appointments and fitting our dog in urgently if we really need to be there. Dr. Gagliardi is no bull****. He is honest and upfront, and his priority is your pet. He is not afraid to tell you "stop worrying" if you are overreacting, or ordering x-rays to be on the safe side. He has also ALWAYS been right in his diagnoses and recovery/treatment plans which is a huge testament to his skill and talent IMO. I've recommended Cooper Square to friends with new pets and old and all have come back and thanked me/made the switch. Love these guys!

Will be going somewhere else. This vet is just too “crabby” in nature. Just not nice.

The best vet in the city. I love Dr. G and his practice. They are kind, responsive and professional. The best.

This team consistently goes above-and beyond... I found Dr. G through Kitty Kind, an animal rescue organization he works with. I started fostering-to-adopt my cat almost two years ago. Shortly after I took her in, she developed ear and then eye issues. Dr. G worked hard to figure out what was going on. She still has issues but Dr. G and his staff continue to go above-and-beyond in caring for her and educating me as a first-time pet owner. When Chloe needed her ears cleaned, Dr. G personally attended to her and allowed me to bring her back for drops since I couldn't hold on to her to do it myself. Now when I bring her in to get her nails clipped (fast, safe and reasonable BTW), they check her ears and eyes and fix her up if needed. I truly don't know what I would do without this team. Dr. G can occasionally be a little gruff but he is incredibly accomplished and truly cares about the pets. His staff is great too and answers any questions. I highly recommend their wonderful care.

I've been coming to this vet clinic for about a year. They treated my rescue for heart worm and Dr. G and all the techs were wonderful. They have limited hours, but the care is great and the staff are kind and friendly!

- Over an hour to get 3 vaccines for my dog during the first appointment on a weekday morning - Big push on extraneous vaccines and fecal tests …

I've been to almost every animal hospital in the city. I will only take my pets here. They are amazing, brilliant at diagnosis and actually do what's best for your animal & will not try to fleece you.

Dr. G can seem a bit abrasive at first but he's very smart and has your pet's best interest. I have a pet with a chronic illness and he's been treating him for years. He really improved the quality of life for my pet. Once he sees that you're willing to go the extra mile for your pets' health he really warms up to you.

Dr Gagliardi may sometimes have a brusque manner, but his knowledge and devotion to your pets are second to none. His staff are kind, courteous, professional, and the place is immaculately clean. This vet saved my cat's life more than once with early diagnosis and treatment. They also checked in the day after procedures to make sure all was OK, and provided dietary recommendations and other valuable information to keep my cats healthy. Both of mine lived to 19+ yrs, and when it was tragically time to let them go. Dr. Gagliardi and his staff helped do so with immense gentleness and compassion. I am deeply grateful to them and would highly recommend them.
