The first time I went, I was convinced Dr. G et all thought I was a braindead moron who was going to kill my two new adopted kitties within a matter of months. However over time our relationship has changed and while I was convinced I should find another vet after our first meeting, I couldn't imagine anyone else seeing my babies now! She is really sympathetic to the economic situation and understood my need to wait on some non-life threatening procedures. I completely trust the way they handle my kitties and having a behaviorist on staff is such a boon!

Dr. Globerman and her staff really give quality care and attention every time. No rush thru. Very thorough exam and treats cat and owner with consideration. Diagnosed condition correctly after several others had missed the problem.

Dr. Globerman, Ingrid and the rest of the PWC staff care about your cat. We had been taking our sweet kitties to The Cat Doctor for a couple of years. One of our kitties suffers from stomatitis and so we weren't satisfied with the care and options we were getting from The Cat Doctor. We read reviews and tried PWC and boy, were we pleased. The prices for services were reasonable(cheaper than the Cat Doctor) and the personal level of care was through the roof. We've been going there for over a year now. Dr. G tried new ways of treating our high-maintenance cat and offered a variety of solutions. They care about your cats quality of life and happiness and that means a lot to me. I cannot say enough positive things about PWC.

This Vet did not diagnose our kitten's illness, despite the fact that she had a common problem for young kittens. Our kitten was lethargic, and had very loose stools (diarrhea). On the way to the Vet, our breeder said to get a fecal exam. The Vet here said to us that they are unreliable and that there was no reason to do one. However, in a letter later on, she said she made a "medical decision to spend their (our) money wisely and" do something elseŚwhich did not help at all. She said that we complained about being tight on moneyŚwe spent $1600 on our two new kittens, spent $260 with this Vet (doing everything she recommended), and at least $400 more with the Vet that did correctly diagnose our kitten's problem. Do you call that tight? This Vet constantly recommends one brand of food, which would be ok if she had done a competent job determining the illness our kitten had. Instead, she prolonged our kitten's illness, which could have lead to her death. I'll leave it up to you: do a search of "Coccidia kittens" in any of the major engines, and see its prevalenceŚshe claims that "Coccidia is not very common in cats of any age". However, another Vet diagnosed Coccidia over the phone, from the same symptoms we had reviewed with this Vet, and said that it is! Where are all these "Best Vet" reviews coming from? You have to wonder.

Dr.Globerman, the vet techs and staff are outstanding. It is the first time that a vet genuinely tried and succeeded in calming my cat without sedation. The vet and tech take their time to calm and gently handle her for the examination and/or blood work. My cat will still growl somewhat but it is just for show. My fun and sassy cat would never admit that she was unable to intimidate this vet :) My senior cat is 18 years old so we have seen a lot of vets over the years. Unfortunately, the other vets/techs would throw towels on my cat, aggressively hold her down, tell me to return another day, sedate her, etc. It was all about how quick they could get my cat in and out (and possibly make money from the sedative & reverse sedative injections). The vet visits were traumatizing for my cat and me until we found Dr. Globerman and her staff.

We have found our last vet. We first saw Dr. Globerman after our cat became very ill and our previous vet and Georgia Veterinary Specialists had mis-diagnosed her. Everyone at Paws, Whiskers and Claws went out of their way to help us during that difficult time, even answering emails during off hours. Their feline knowledge is unsurpassed and I am glad to have found them. I feel confident knowing they can handle any situation not just well visits that seem to be the limit of most vets.

After going to several vets, I found Paws Whiskers and Claws and it is the BEST. They REALLY care about the cats and are extremely knowledgable. If they can't help you they will let you know who can (I had a scheduling conflict and it was rather urgent). Words can't even describe how happy I am with this place. Dr. Globerman was very helpful and took great care of my kitty. They are fairly priced and even offer free nail trimming without an appointment. SO great.

The office is a calm place for cats (no dogs means less stress for me and the cats!). Plus, Dr. Globerman convinced my painfully shy kitty to come out of the carrier on his own. He even let her pet him! And, Ingrid (the behaviorist on staff) has been a great help dealing with my super-smart, super-hyperactive cat.

Regarding the person who did not care for the assistant to Dr. Globerman...here's a news flash. People are often the problem. It's rarely the patient that is a problem and folks as dedicated as these see a lot of poor parenting so cut them a little slack. I have found that they completely understand my silly questions and are so dedicated to my cats' well-being. Cats are sometimes mysterious and they have helped me to be a better kitty mom.

If you're interested in a sadistic experience where you're told you're the worst cat owner ever, this is the place for you. The people here are all about what you're doing wrong and how you can come spend more money on expensive tests and not at all interested in actually listening to anything you say. I have been to many vets with many pets over the years and have never had such an unbelievably bad experience. This really could have been an SNL skit with the nutso cat lady. Wow!

I'm intrigued by how many reviews are here and how positive they are. While there's no doubt they know alot about (and love) cats, the "bedside manner" was terrible. The assistant was so patronizing that I never went back for a followup. I'm also not convinced the exam was thorough and the things that WERE done were needed. I know that sounds contradictory, but I left very unsure of what was done for my cat. Also, I have this gut feeling that most vets are paid off by cat food companies and other suppliers, which seems so dishonest. So I'm still looking for the right vet for my cat.

I first saw Dr G & staff after a failed attempt by another vet. That was more than a yr. ago & I continue to bring my 18 y.o. geriatric cat to PWC. With my cat growing older & having arthritis and pain issues - Dr. G and her staff have provided me with the best care -- whenever I call they are always there to answer my questions & provide me with the best possible advice for at home care. I would not trust my life-long friend to anyone else in what are his golden years!

We used to go to The Cat Clinic of Roswell before management changed hands a year or two ago. I didn't like what I was hearing about CCR so I wanted to switch. When I found that Dr. Globerman opened her own practice, I was relieved because she always provided great service and attention while at CCR. We've been at the new practice for a year and have had 2 annual visits with her and we've been very pleased. She also helped educate us on how to manage any potential problems when introducing a new baby to the house. While prices are high, I think it's expected and gladly pay it to have piece of mind that my babies are being taken care of. Also - their office does not smell like cats like most vets do.

My husband and I have a 2 1/2 year old male tabby, who has been described by another vet as "agitated and aggressive". He really is the sweetest cat, but gets scared when he is handled roughly or by loud barking of dogs. From their website, I could tell that they understand cats better than any other vet. So, when we adopted a new 4 month old kitten, I knew we wanted her to come to Paws Whiskers & Claws. She and our oldest developed colds, and we have been to the vet several times in the past month. We never have anything short of a great visit and great service. I highly recommend them, and we will return to them anytime we need to, without a doubt.
