A complete disgrace, 7/06/2009

I can not begin to express the deepest regret I have for going to Heart Of Chelsea. They took my 9 week old puppy and without any consultation with me began vaccinating him for everything under the... sun. Many of these Vaccinations have been proven to cause cancer in dogs and are attributed to many of the illnesses that ruin animals. They are in it for the money only. They want your cash, all of it and in truth they dont give a crp about your dog. I would NEVER refer someone there and I am sad that my poor dog may fall ill one day due to their work. I was overcharged on everything done there and the only thing they want is your money. They wanted him to be neutered when he is a show dog European Dobermann and when I said no they tried explaining to me that a dog having testicles was more prone to cancer. Yeah sure. That may work on these dog stupid individuals that walk through the door but people you need to do your homework and read up on whhat H.O.C doesnt want you know. DO NOT GO HERE FOR ANYTHING.

Best Vet Ever, Dr. Cohen, 10/17/2008

So I LOVED Heart of Chelsea Animal Hospital. The staff was amazing! And I was lucky enough to get Dr. Cohen to take care of my cat. She is the BEST VET I have ever experienced in my life, and this... is coming from someone whose had pets for 23 years. However, I was horrified to find out one day that Dr. Cohen was no longer there, and then absolutely enraged when they would not tell me why she was gone or where she relocated. I am appalled. This is my cat's doctor, who saved my animals life, and they refuse to give me any information on where she went. If anyone reads this and knows where Dr. Cohen is currently practicing, please post the information on this site. It would mean the world to me.

The support staff is quite good and that's unusual

I changed vets and chose this one. The doctor was good but the support staff was even better. Everyone I interacted with was intelligent and well-trained. They were good listeners too and able to answer questions rather than get that blank look that so many support staff people have. I even found a free parking space across the street, but I don't think that is likely to occur again.

a cat's Mom

After seeing 4 different Vets, my cat's condition was just getting worst. when I finally went to see Dr Siebert, he took his time to research all the current tests and history of my cat before giving me the option to treat her. He even called one of the other vet. My cat is all better now, thanks to Dr Siebert. He will be my cat's vet from now on.

Satisfied

I have found the staff at HOC to be very nice. I don't spend time waiting around to see the vet and my vet is very nice. I like that they call to see how I'm handling giving my cat his medication and how my cat is responding.

the vets are Ok - average, somewhat disorganized

THE FEES ARE OUTRAGEOUS - they are money-gougers. The staff can be snotty but some are ok. They do not communicate important information very well. \rTHE FEES ARE OUTRAGEOUS - they are money-gougers.

Pre-Charged, Over-Charged Shots, Unprofessional Attitude

I import my dog from Taiwan with all the vaccination record (bi-lingually) and visited them to get a vaccination for my 4 months old puppy. They told me they don't understand the language and wanted to give the first Rabies shot ($40.50) again in two days while I was asking for the third DA2PP shot. Regardless the nurse tried to write down the medicine my dog SHOULD take automatically (Because I'd rather apply Revolution on my dog's skin instead of letting a puppy to take any medicine to prevent flees or heart worm disease for allergy consideration) without asking the owner, me?hello?, if my dog needs it or not! I was almost screaming then she stopped. So the VET came in, trying to tell me that she doesn't understand the record and needs my dog to take the first Rabies shot in order to get an American sticker on the record so all the vets in the US could understand.\r\rIf that's the case, how can I import my dog when the US Custom has no problem with all the records I provided?

Good

This is a great place to keep your dog while you are away. If you are anything like me, you worry about your puppy when you are on a trip and this place has a greay system to help you. They have cameras in their center to allow you to watch 24/7. Before I dropped off my dog, I watched the videos a lot to see if there was anything I didn't like about how they treated the animals and I always so kindness. This is a winner.

Great Vets

This is a really good place to bring in your pets. I have gone here for regular check ups for my cats, for emergency type services and even for surgery. The staff is super nice and gentle with the animals. The facility is clean and they are always very accomodating. Also, they are very good about notifying you when it is time for your pet to come in for his check-up.

This place is Awesome

We had an amazing experience at the Heart of Chelsea Animal Hospital! The staff is terrific and the care first rate. I would highly recommend this place.While this facility may be small, the staff is greatly committed to your pet's health and well-being. It is the personal touch that matters from a health care provider and the staff at Heart of Chelsea instantly makes you feel at home. Whether it's that first smile from the recptionist to the sound advice from the vet tech and thorough attention from Dr. Jennifer Gabriele, anyone should feel more than comfortable bringing his beloved pet here!PROS: Friendly, Attentive, Entusiastic StaffCONS: Delayed Appts possible
