The only reason I only gave a 4 out of 5 star is because I have only been to the office once. I was elated with the experience.
After taking my dog to Trenton Vetrinary Hospital for the past several years, I finally had enough of the high costs and switched clinics. I chose Wyandotte Animal hospital because Dr Mann used to be at the Trenton Vetrinary Hospital and I really liked him there. He is much more personable than Dr Oliver and did not try to get me to buy unnecessary meds or perform unnecessary tests.
I walked out of the office, spending half of what I was charged at the TVH. I felt like I was actually paying for my dog's care and not the fancy office.
While I think Dr Oliver is a competent Vet, He was killing me with the costs for all of the tests he insisted on. He made me feel like I didn't care about my dog if I said I didn't want the test. My dog suffers from allergies and recurring ear infections, After about $2500 we got the allergies under control (took about a year), and every ear infection cost me about $500 before it was over. He insisted on doing a culture, even though it was always the same result. He would give the dog a shot while my head was turned and then of course I would get charged.
When my dog once again got an ear infection this week, I decided to do what everyone had been telling me for a long time, switch vets. I took her to a new clinic, while it was not a newly remodeled office, it was very clean and adequate. It was like a breath of fresh air. They prescribed only what she needed, not the 2 or 3 meds I always left Dr Olivers office with. They didn't try to talk me into tests and unnecessary shots and the cost was half of what I had to pay at Dr Olivers office.
I wish I would have listened to people sooner I could have saved a ton of money.
