Have refused to give me a itemized bill that I am entitled to see, so they are getting sued for deceptive trade practice, all I asked for was a bill to show what i was charged for and they refuse to tell me what I paid for ! they also do

After reading all of the reviews and being recommended to the hospital we went and gave it a try. We are currently with Banfield (which really is nothing) and they did nothing to help my dog who is sick. The desk staff at Converse Animal

I moved to King William recently but still make the drive to Converse Animal Hospital because of how professional and caring they are. Thanks for always providing stellar service for my dog Bess.

Very informed staff. Nice visit, in and out. Nice reception on arrival, everything was peaceful, clean, and the staff was professional. The doctor explained everything clearly and very well understood our issues and concerns. The office was clean, nice scents, lovely fishtank as well. Clean seats and floors, no clutter on the counter. Both vets took very good care of my pets. Keep up your pro status in our community, thanks. Everything that I encountered was excellent and customer service is great.

Jean always visits our dog when we come in. We feel well cared for. Dee and Hannah are always friendly and helpful and Dr Mary Ann is simply great. She remembers your dogs needs.

You give quality care to your patients and you do it at a reasonable cost. You are also always on time with your appointments. I only waited very few minutes in the lobby and that because I was a bit early.

I really feel my little guys were really cared for. I am extremely grateful they did so well. I was very worried about their health declining, but thankfully they are both doing well.

I have 3 dogs, three cats, and a chinchilla (a mistake I won't make again), and Dr. Johansen and her staff have taken care of all of them since the hospital opened. I just had to write and say how much I appreciate them and the excellent care they give my animals. I recently had a dog with cancer, and now I have a 17-year-old dog in the early stages of kidney failure, and Dr. Johansen was very thorough in explaining my treatments options for both. She never pressures me but just makes sure I'm well informed about my options before I have to make difficult decisions. It's clear what a kind heart she has and how committed she is to the welfare of her patients and their ""people"". That's true of her whole staff -- I know my animals are in the best hands with them. I feel so lucky to have someone so caring and competent taking care of these special family members!

I refuse to return despite this being the closest facility to my house and the extended hours on the opening and closing ends. For me the visits have been hit and miss, some average and some just downright fustrating, but the latest problem was more than I can bear.

I won't be back and I can't recommend. Hundreds of my dollars a year are now going elsewhere.

My pet was sick and I went to Ellison Animal Hospital for my puppy. What was great is that as a walk in they we're able to schedule me right away. Unfortunately after arriving at my designated time I still had to wait 30 mins to be seen. The staff seemed very cheerful, but there was many periods where we were left waiting 30 mins at a time. When it came time to pay I waited an hr just to have them swipe my card along with 3 other people waiting to pay. The visit in totality was over 3 and a half hours. Also the tech did not explain to us what each medication was for, just how much to give and when but by the time we had realized this we had stayed passed closing to pay for our bill that when we called they were closed. Our tec also explained to us that today was his first day, and at most hospitals a tech would be shadowing a veteran employee. My husband and I both work at a hospital and we understand how quickly a patient can get aggravated if they are left waiting uninformed. It's standard to let them know where you are going and when you will be back and to keep that promise if you say this will only take 10 mins. If any of them arrive at my hospital my service would be much better. The next day I went to a different facility Converse Animal Hospital (Defiantly 5 STARS) for my other dog to have a 2nd opinion for the same symptoms. Again I was a walk in and when I arrived at my designated time I went in the office in less then 5 min and was out of there in 1 HR. The exam, medication, and tests were all roughly $10 dollars cheaper. The staff was friendly and the office was more dog friendly for my pet. Best of all my Husband and I got the feeling that this Vet is our Vet. She was knowledgeable and cheerful and her words seemed sincere.

I had previously written a review that noted this animal hospital as sub par.\r
I had been going to this vet with my 3 dogs for 3+ years and my mom also takes her dogs there. \r
After a not-so-great experience with the Dr, I wrote a review that mimicked my opinion at that time of my visit.\r
After a follow-up converstaion with the vet, I have decided to change my opinion.\r
This is a very good clinic and I will continue to take my pets there, other than this one incident, my dogs have always been well taken care of. \r
The office staff as well as the techs are always wonderful.\r
Thank you Dr. Johansen.

Winston (Boxer), Biggles (Mexican Hairless or Xolo), and Louie (Chocolate Lab mix) are patients of Drs. Johansen and her partner who are thorough and good diagnosticians. They and their staff have always been friendly, courteous and provided high quality care. They're very good dog people. Winston, has been with them the longest and is always greeted by name and they've always been willing to answer questions about the dogs' health and well being. I recommend them highly. Winston and I have traveled the country extensively and he sees a number of vets. They are two of the three veterinarians that I measure all others by. The other being Dr. Girgis of Huntington Beach Animal Hospital in California.

My dachshund Charlie has been a patient since he was 7 weeks old. The docs always take superb care of him and the rest of the staff always greet him as if he was their most important patient. I have had to take him twice for illnesses and didn't have an appointment. I was seen right away and given the medication for him before we left. Charlie likes them so much that when we go to get a bath at the groomer in the same building, he tries to go to the office first. Charlie is now 18 months old and has yet to cry, snap, or try to bite anyone of the staff. They are gentle with him and always allow me to stay with him when they are treating him. I also have a cat named Boo that they have treated. She also doesn't fight or try to run away. That is a mircle of the first order! When we have been in for surgery or an illness, someone always follows up in the next two days to see how my pet is doing. Human Doctors should be as attentive. I am very happy with this vet service.

Pros: Parking great; also will board for a very good price

The staff is very friendly, and the doctor is experienced and seems to know her stuff as the previous reviewer stated, however, the doctor herself has been quite rude and snotty to me on more than one occasion. I asked her if, in her OPINION she thought my cat's leg might be fractured and her response was ""I don't know! I don't have X-ray vision!"" She also would not let me leave my cat there for ten minutes while she examined him. I had to stay there because she said she didn't want me leaving the cat & never returning. This was my 3rd or 4th visit to her office, I was not a new client that shouldn't be trusted. She seems to have a bit of a catty attitude towards some customers, especially female. Her rudeness was completely unprovoked, as I've always been polite to her and her staff. Overall the service is pretty good, but I could live without the ""I'm a doctor and you're an idot"" attitude. If she's rude to me next time I take one of my pets in, I highly doubt I'll ever use their services again if I can avoid it. I may be visiting their office again this week, if so, I'll report back with my next experience with them.

The best vet EVER!\r
I have a Rott (big girl) and every experience I've had at the vet has been horrible! But this place was great! Very friendly staff and what?...a vet that knows her stuff! I didn't even know they still existed. My girl was terrified of vet visits after being tramatized by others but in 5 minutes this lady had my dog calm enough to put gel in her eye. My girl snapped at the last vet when he touched her paw!!!! See the difference? I sure do and we're sticking with these guys.
