Review of Paws Whiskers and Claws, 6/21/2015

OMG I absolutely love Dr. Globerman, Ingrid, Dina and Julia! I have had cats all of my life and have had many good vets, but they, by far, have been the most thorough, most informative, and most... caring staff I have ever been to. I am always amazed at how much time they all spend with me when I am there. I live nowhere near their office, but I drive 45 minutes just to see them. I was happy with my vet, but when I was having behavioral problems with my youngest cat and oldest cat, they stepped up…did a very thorough examination of each of mine (even my middle one) before we made a game plan. Ingrid is certified in animal behavior and I utilized her skills as well. Dina has been willing to drop off medicine to me on her way home, as she lives near me. Dr. Globerman's expertise in cats is top notch and she works very hard to keep the cost reasonable. I can't speak enough about how satisfied and happy I am with the car of my little ones. They really treat us all as a family and that is how I see myself and my little ones. I would be happy to speak to any new client's of Dr. "G!" Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping me and my family Paws, Whiskers and Claws!!!

The Best CAT Vet, 3/05/2015

If you are looking for a veterinarian to take the best care of your kitty-look no further than Dr. Globerman and her staff. I have had kitties for the past 30+ years, but I learned more about the... "thinking of a cat" to their care from Dr. G, Ingrid and Deena in just the 2 years I took my kitties to them. By the time I found Dr. G I had 2 senior kitties. Because of their knowledge, caring and the education they provided me - I give them all the credit for extending my kitties lives and to be able to have additional quality time with both of them. Unfortunately, one lost her battle to a stroke at age 19 and the other to cancer at age 17. But when I decide to get another BFF (Best Furry Friend) I will be returning to Dr. G. I have to travel about 35 minutes each way - but every minute is worth it. Don't look any further - make an appointment with them now.

So thankful for PWC

Dr. G and Ingrid have been taking care of my babies for the past 7-8 years. They have always shown the utmost of care and compassion. My eldest girl, a beautiful blue tortie named Misha, was diagnosed with diabetes in August of this year at 12 years old and Dr. G was so patient and responsive. Over Christmas, she experienced an episode of diabetic ketoacidosis and the care and compassion of everyone at PWC was unmatched. She was in the hospital for 5 days and appeared to have recovered. We picked her up on New Year's Day. By Saturday, she was doing poorly again and I spent the weekend syringe feeding, administering fluids and taking care of my baby around the clock. During this time, Dr. G was always available by email and was so helpful. On Monday, she wanted to repeat lab work and it turned out my baby was producing ketones again and the prognosis wasn't good. We'd tried everything but it was clear my baby was done fighting and I couldn't bear to watch her suffer. The agonizing decision to let her go was made and the compassion of Dr. G, Ingrid and Dina shone through the entire time. I was able to spend as much time with my baby as needed and she was treated with great care and dignity. They helped me with the aftercare details as well. I am beyond heartbroken but I am so grateful for these wonderful people. Dr. G will continue to care for my Molly and the next kitty who agrees to be a part of our family. Much love to the wonderful women of PWC.

I am so glad I found them.

PWC has helped me through so many issues with my cats. When we had elderly cats, PWC helped us give them the best possible quality of life. I am so grateful for everyone at PWC. I really believe my cats lives have improved dramatically since finding PWC.

A cat owner's ideal vet

We highly and unreservedly recommend Dr. Globerman and her staff, including but not limited to Ingrid and Deena. They have provided excellent care to our three cats (one of whom is elderly) and they also take good care of cat "parents" - and they are fun too!

We LOVE Paws Whiskers & Claws!

Dr. Globerman and Ingrid (and the entire team!) are angels on earth! My husband and I have a kitty, Peaches, who is elderly with kidney disease (among other things!) and the quality of life turn-around that she has made in just the last few months has been nothing short of miraculous! We have been visiting PWC for 5 years now and they have been nothing but patient and supportive as we have tried new treatments and learned techniques to make her quality of life better. And her quality of life has improved dramatically!! We feel so empowered and supported by everyone in the PWC office and high-five each other nearly every day as we perform the techniques that we have been taught (daily sub-q fluids, anyone??!!). We know that every kitty and every experience is different, but PWC fits ours perfectly and we know that Peaches would not be here today without their love and support. We may not have much longer with our girl, but we have immense comfort knowing that she will have access to the absolute best treatments and a team that values quality of life tremendously. PWC has a big place in our lives and our hearts!

The best Duo for kitties ever!

Dr. Globerman and Ingrid Johnson are truly the cat's meow. They have taken great care of my cats (and I drive an hour to get to them and it's worth every minute of my time) and Ingrid has helped me integrate a third cat. Ingrid has great tips on all kinds of behavior issues and Dr. Globerman clearly puts the cats' health and well-being as the most important goal. Dr. Globerman was so wonderful to take off just the top of the pet carrier with one of my cats who was anxious and she kept him covered the entire appointment so he felt safe and secure. I've had cats for many years and no has ever done that for one of my fur babies. I'm so happy I found them!!!

This place is horrid

This place is a total rip-off. Astronomical prices and alleged maladies that don't exist. Both my friend and I were told that our cat had "fleas" and they tried to sell us a flea bath. No fleas on either cat. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Would like to give No stars but that is not possible. RESPONSE: Yes, I am certain that I have the correct facility. You did not just advocate a flea bath for my cat you did the same thing for my girlfriend's cat. We were both told at different times with different cats that our cat's had fleas and needed a flea bath. So despite any protests to the contrary that it was happened. Your staff seems to want to sell extra services similar to a used car salesman selling a car; a hard sell no doubt. I find the whole thing downright shameful.

Paws Whiskers & Claws, Feline Hospital replied on 09-04-2014

RESPONSE: We remain perplexed by your review as we do not offer flea baths and have not ever done one or recommended one. Here is a link to our handout about flea control: http://pawswhiskersandclaws.com/?page_id=413 ORIGINAL REPLY: We are so very sorry that you felt you had a bad experience here. Please contact our office for clarification as we do not offer flea baths as they are an ineffective method of flea control, nor do we advocate bathing cats unless medically necessary. We will be happy to discuss any questions you have regarding the services you received and the charges for said services. We are always happy to provide an estimate prior to services being performed. Are you certain you have the correct facility as we have NEVER offered flea baths or dips? If you have not visited our facility, please kindly remove this review. Thank you!

Best Cat Vet

I've shared my life with cats for over 30 years and I've had many veterinarians. I have used cat only vets predominately and Dr. Stephanie Globerman at Paws Whiskers & Claws is the best vet my cats have seen. The quality of the care is second to none and I have gotten innovative advice and quality of life information that makes every day better for my cats. Ingrid Johnson is a great resource for cat behavior analysis and ideas to make their lives better. I really feel that all the people at PW&C love my cats and I recommend PW&C to my friends who share their lives with cats.

Canby's care.

I would like to thank Dr. G, Ingrid and Dina for the care and compassion they gave to me and Canby on August 19. My little man had tumors growing all over his body and after meds and discussions with Dr. G, it was time to put my Canby down. I had him for 13 years and he was almost 17. The care from PWC was superior during the 7 years I used them. I would highly recommend them for anyone that truly wants to find the best vet. Thank you for caring!

Caring staff

I had my first visit with Dr. Globerman today. She was very kind and gentle with my 2 cats. She took the time to get their history and did not rush with her service. Ingrid and Dina were also very professional. Enjoyed my visit!

Absolutely worth the drive

Dr. Globerman & her staff are the BEST. After losing one of our cats to mistakes another cat vet closer to our Alpharetta home made (& a $1K plus bill) We found PWC...our elderly cats are now getting the BEST CARE and doing GREAT. It's definately worth the drive to Marietta. Would you base your health care decisions for your children on just cost?

Paid over $600 for two healthy cat wellness visits

Other than ER visits for our cats, I have only ever spent $600 on a wellness visit when we owned six cats. From past experiences with vets, a wellness visit for two cats should be around $250, with $300 on the high side. We were charged $613.90! Other than one of our cats being old and us told he had arthritis as well as a heart murmur, both cats were in tip top shape. What drove the price so high was that they did bloodwork on both cats and sold my husband on getting heartworm meds (they didn't get a stool sample) for them even though they are indoor cats. The invoice said that both of those services were done on an annual basis. Great, bloodwork and meds they didn't need. Those services are excessive to do every year in my opinion and, the bloodwork specifically, unecessary stress on our boys. That all said, our usually "unruly at the vet" kitties were well-behaved due to excellent care. Addendum: Ingrid did call me today after seeing this review. We had a very constructive conversation. My family will be using this vet again. However, they will need to show better communication skills, specifically with their prices, in order to keep us as customers. I added a star to all three categories for her efforts today.

You won't find a better vet!

My pets are my babies! Just like any parent would want the best doctor for their child I wanted the best doctor for my pets. Dr. Globerman has been our vet for many years and I personally have not met a more qualified vet in the Atlanta area. She and her staff are the BEST! Everyone at PW&C is loving, kind, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. They are also very good at informing and educating. I trust them wholeheartedly and feel very fortunate that my pets are getting the care they offer. Not only are they genuinely loving with their patients, they are equally as caring with the parents. I couldn't ask for more. Dr. Globerman, Ingrid and Julia... Thank you for ALL you do!
