“Thank you for your continued professionalism and care of my family member. (From the return call to my departure) I was very impressed with Dr. Jones today, I am still searching for the adjective to describe her amazing knowledge and bedside manner.”
“Today was my last visit with you and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the compassionate care you provided me during my life. Most of all, I want to thank you for the tender way you took care of my parents today. They love me so much and I know it was hard for them to let me go — even though I was ready. I could sense how it comforted them to have you all there to help them say “goodbye.” You’ll be happy to know I’m up in Heaven now and I’m running around like I did when I was young and healthy — and there’s no pain! Love you all”
“The front desk staff is very professional and they have excellent PR. ALL staff members are very courteous and knowledgeable. I recommend your facility to others that need care for their pets. Highly recommended!”
“Don’t waste you time shopping for a new vet, this is the place. Our family recently relocated to San Diego and we were referred to San Diego Pet Hospital by a pet store owner. It was apparent from the moment we entered the clinic, the warm staff and Dr. Lisa truly love their clientele and their work. Quality care, compassionate service and reasonable pricing are all equally important when it comes to our pets, SDPH understands this. It is a refreshing change to find a business with such old fashioned values, where there are no “hidden costs” or “misunderstandings” when you pick up your pet. We happily recommend San Diego Pet Hospital.”
“I love this place. Dr. Lisa is the most fun, caring and knowledgeable veterinarian that we have taken our dogs to. She is not only great with the animals you bring in, but she is also great at taking time to explain everything to the owners too. This place is a one stop shop. We take our dogs there for veterinarian needs, grooming and kenneling. The staff is so good with the animals and friendly, we take our dogs here for all their needs.”
“Dr. Lisa is fabulous!! She is not only skilled with the animals, she’s also great with the owners too. She takes time to explain things thoroughly. She also doesn’t rip you off on over priced procedures, unnecessary tests or try to upsell you on product. Her pricing is very reasonable and they will always give you a written estimate. She’s very good at diagnosing problems and teaching owners how to care for their pet. The staff is great too. Very friendly & knowledgable. The office is nice & sunny & cheerful. All in all a great experience and now take all my animals to Dr. Lisa.”
“I’ve been a cutomer of the San Diego Pet Hospital for over 20 years after Michael Clark, DVM inherited the practice from his father. Michael Clark was one of the best veterinarians I had ever taken my pets to and I stuck with him all those years. After he passed away Dr. Lisa purchased his practice from his estate. I like her as much as I liked and respected Michael Clark. In fact, I like her even more.”
“I am sending a heartfelt thanks for the care and concern expressed by you, your colleagues, and your staff towards Solomon and myself. This very apparent sincerity shown by all has touched my soul.”
“Thank you so much for taking great care of Marmalade during her emergency. We are so appreciative to everyone at the hospital for their kindness and caring and we are very grateful to Dr. Harris for maneuvering her day to care for Marmalade! Everyone is so wonderful and took excellent care of Marmalade. This is a fantastic hospital and we were so touched to see how much everyone cares! Thank you! Marmalade has recovered very well and she is back to her favorite activity of watching birds with her siblings!”
“The practice is able to personalize treatments instead of it being a large place where you are never guaranteed the same vet and they never recognize you. Everyone is very friendly and I’m happy that you all listen to our concerns and needs. Also, the waiting room is neat, clean, inviting, and smells great! ”
“Dr. Labrecque, you are the kindest and most caring veterinarian I have ever been to. You and your staff made a terrible situation for Buddy and I as comfortable as possible. I have told many friends and family about you. Thank you for being there with Buddy and I. May God Bless you all.”
“Thank you all of you so much for everything you have done for us and Zach. We searched for years for a vet that we loved and trusted. I know how you know how much we loved our Zach, and everyone know their dog is special, but Zach seemed to have this special personality that really brought out the love in everyone he met. We feel that you all felt that too, and we are happy that his life in some way touched yours. We appreciate more than words can say the kindness and the caring with which you treated us all through these last months of Zach’s beautiful life, and the time you always took to respectfully listen to us, kindly explain things to us, and generously support us in this journey. You are a special bunch.”
“We knew we found special people who truly cared about their animals when we found you. We just didn’t realize how important it would be until we had to make the hardest decision about our sweet Sacha. We could see she touched your lives as she did so many others. I’m not sure we could have made the right decision without your understanding and support. Thank you for that. hey say grief is the price we pay for love, but Sacha was worth any day of our on-going grief and thank you all for making it a little more bearable.”
“We were so fortunate to have found you and to have trusted Pedro to your care. We cannot thank you enough for all your love and care for him. We will always remember the skill and kindness you brought to his care and most of all the interest you showed in him. It was such a comfort that it was his friends at the San Diego Pet Hospital who attended him at the last. You made us feel like part of the family. We will be forever grateful. Pedro was special and so are you all. Our sincerest heartfelt thanks”
