I WOULD NEVER RECOMEND THIS VET AND WILL NEVER GO BACK... I brought my new cat in for treatment the day I acquired him for an upper respiratory infection and overall exam; the unfriendly vet, Dr. Walia, didnt weigh my cat, attempt to age him, nor did he exam his body in any way other than to check his ears for mites and diagnose his obvious upper respiratory infection (URI)...he was physically rough with and unsympathetic towards my cat, gave me meds and sent me on my way...THREE SEPERATE ROUNDS OF MEDICATIONS LATER my cat was still sneezing mucus,I went back FOR A FOURTH TIME for more meds and literally had to insist on them giving me a stronger medication; after giving him the meds and seeing that he STILL was not getting better I took a look at the meds I was given and they were for tooth absesses!! A month and a half and $300+ later and my cat still sick, I refused to go back, I went to VETS FOR LESS and they were awesome!! I explained the situation and the vet there even said that she didnt understand why he gave me that particular last "stronger" medication to my cat for his URI...she tested him for feline leukemia and AIDS to rule them out(WHICH WESTGATE VET SHOULD HAVE DONE WEEKS AND WEEKS AGO!!!) and sent me off with a 2 week medication and feeling LOTS better about my experience and my cats health.I did not feel like Dr.Walia at Westgate Animal Hospital truly cared about the well being of my cat or for animals in general, research, read reviews and choose wisely!
