I see that Dr. Secter has mostly favorable reviews; unfortunately I must disagree. I have been a client here for two years, but am now shopping for a new vet. Every time I bring my animals in, even for simple vaccinations, there is pressure to buy goods and services I did not bring them for. Sometimes these are even added onto the bill and I am not told about them until the end of the visit. It can be quite a shock to be told in advance a procedure will be $175.00 and then be charged $250.00 at the end of the visit. I might add that these added charges are not for essentials but for unnecessary testing and medications. If you protest the added charges, the staff is very short with you and implies that if you really loved your pet you would be willing to spend anything they say! If I didn't love my pets I wouldn't be taking them to a vet at all, but my budget doesn't have room for a lot of unnecessary extras, and they seem not to understand that. Frankly, I feel like I'm being milked. But recently I took my 11 month old German shepherd pup to be neutered. Although he is not aggressive, the staff seemed terrified of him because of his size. If they are unwilling to handle large breeds, perhaps they should specify that to clients. I was told he was being neutered by laser method, but I suspect he was done by scalpel instead. At home that entire night he cried in pain. I have had several animals neutered, and never have I seen one in such post-operative pain. When I contacted the office, they were unconcerned about his discomfort, but told me they would sell me an elizabethan collar for $20! After his sutures are removed- because for some reason the vet did not use dissolving sutures- I will not be taking him back there. Ever.
