Below is the review I wrote years ago but I have to change it. The vet that I used moved to VA and the remaining vets are only concerned about making money. Obviously, they have a business to run but this goes far beyond that. I have since found out that they performed tests and sold me products and medications that were not needed. I have seen 3 of the vets and they are all the same...I have been taking my cats here for 7 years. I can't say enough wonderful things about these people. When my cat was in kidney failure I was bombarded with alternate treament suggestions, articles on the disease, my vet even gave me her home and cell numbers and repeatedly called to check on my cat. Every member of their staff truly cares about your pets. I especially love that they have seperate wings for dogs and cats. I could go on and on!

I don't want to sound overly negative because overall this vet was quite nice. I never waited very long (my appointments were always the first appointments of the morning), the staff was pretty nice, and they seperated out the cats from the dogs which was nice since my dog is skiddish around cats. They were also extremely willing to talk to me over the phone when I had questions. However, the prices are extremely high ($500 spaying). I didn't feel my dog recieved very personal attention - I didn't feel like I knew exactly what was going on and what I needed to do.

Started taking my dog there when he was quite elderly and they were very caring and concerned for him. When he left us we got a female puppy and started taking her there. As we discussed having her spayed they were first of all higher than anyone in the area but what really concerned me is they kept them overnight with NO ONE there -that's right, everyone goes home and leaves the post-surgical patients alone in the building. It's kinda like a hospital with no nurses, doctors or even aides. I guess if the postsurgical patients have problems during the night, it is just..oh well. Anyway, I took my dog somewhere where they were staffed 24 hours to be spayed. It is obviously a practice designed for the elite - the office hours are so limited it is very hard for a "working" person to get there. Once I tried to use their drop off service and I got there 10 minutes before they opened at 7:30 - the person working the front desk was already there and she sat at the desk staring at me and refused to open the door until exactly 7:30.

I've been taking my dogs and cat to Pharr Road for 5 years. They've done an outstanding job taking care of my pets. Everything from stitching up my accident prone lab to managing my shephered's arthritis has been handled well and with the focus on maximizing quality of life for the animals. They have been proactive about educating me on supplements etc to protect my large dogs' knees and hips. Even when my schedule is crazy, I can drop the dogs off before work and pick them up on the way home. The vets are great about taking plenty of time on the phone to tell me what's going on and answer all of my questions. I saw some comments that they were pricey. If their foresight means postponing or completely avoiding $5,000 surgeries by adding inexpensive supplements to my dogs diets when they're young, I'm probably saving a lot in the long run. Since this also gives my dogs years of additional quality life, I think it's completely worthwhile. I'll continue driving past a half dozen other vets to take my pets to Pharr Road!

I have taken my pets here since moving to Atlanta in 1999. The staff here has worked me in with emergencies, helped me with rescue dogs, and they went out of their way to comfort my husband and me when we had to put our first dog to sleep. Each doctor has top-notch training, they offer many services on site such as ultrasound and laser surgery - I feel very secure knowing they are in my neighborhood.

I have been a client for 8 years, and I have never been anything but impressed with the service and quality of care. The doctors and staff have often gone "above and beyond" to care for my pets, and I truly appreciate having a veterinarian who cares about my pets as much as I do. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else!

I agree that the vets here are nice, and the facilities are nice, however the prices are way too high, and just got higher. They dont even give discounts for multiple pets. There are other, more affordable vets in Atlanta, and I will be switching soon.

I have been taking my animals to Pharr Rd. Animal Hospital for 17 years. Since the animal hospital has expanded by taking over the house next door the prices have gone up even higher than they were before and they were already high. I always felt that I was getting good service and caring vets for the money. Not anymore, since they have expanded the service has become worse. Last year when I was in for my animal's annuals I sat in an exam room, that was smaller than any of the exam rooms prior to the expansion, for almost an hour. I was in a tiny @ 4x4 exam room with an old cat and a 3 year old Lab for almost an hour waiting. When the veternarian came in finally I asked what had taken so long and I was given attitude by the veterinarian. The vet asked what time I got in for my appointment and I said at my scheduled time maybe by the time the dog peed on a few bushes in the yard out front I was 3 or 4 minutes after my time. I was told that that is why I had to sit and wait for almost an hour, no apology. So, high prices, attitude and smaller exam rooms, why? I called actually yesterday and asked that they fax my animals records to another veterinarian and the person answering the phone did not even ask why I might be taking my animals somewhere else, 17 years as a customer and not one bit of concern when I leave, it does not sound like they care too much about me or my pets.

I've been taking my dog and cat to Pharr Rd for about eight years now. The staff is great, the doctors are knowledgeable and always explain the situation to you in a way that's easy to understand. Sometimes I think my animals receive better medical treatment than I do!
