Great place, highly recommendable. – I have known this place for years, I would not change it
for any other. Dr. would call on Sundays to check on my pets, very caring people, and fair prices.
Revised Review – I previously wrote a review blasting Andes Animal Hospital for price gouging. At the same time, I wrote the owner of the clinic, Dr. Molina- Brisson a similar letter. Not only did he email me, but he personally called me because he was upset that I was unsatisfied. I am willing to give this clinic another chance because Dr. Molina-Brisson was so gracious.
Andes is the Best – I have been going to Andes for at least five years now. Dr. Molina has always treated my animals with kindness. When my cat got sick, he saved her life. Yes, it did cost money but like most people they need to earn a living also. Keeping animals healty does cost money and every vet I went to was no different. They expect to be paid for their services and rightly so. Dr. Molina showed us how to give our cat fluids to save the cost of bringing her in. When we took in a family member's dog on a temporary basis, he gave her a checkup and gave us low cost solutions to help her as she is old and has arthritis. He did not order expensive testing or tell us she needed stuff when she didn't. He has always been fair and kind to us. He does speak his mind and has even chastised me when he felt he needed to, but a lot of people don't like to hear the facts. I would definitely recommend Dr. Molina. The staff has always been very kind to me and able to answer my questions. If they couldn't, they found out and called me back.
Bad Vet & Way Over-Priced! – I took my pet here when he started having problems urinating. Before even allowing my dog to become acquainted, the vet tech grabbed him, slapped a muzzle on him and proceeded to 'examine' my dog. I knew the problem with the urine was most likely stones, but the vet started berating me in the fact that my dog was fat and if he had to have surgery he would have to lose weight, first of all my dog is far from fat. he is a 12 lb Miniature Schnauzer mix, you can see clearly see a waistline as well as easily feel his ribs. Not only did this vet berate me on the weight of my dog he also started grilling me about shots and heartworm medication and where I obtain my heartworm medication. I felt like I was a prisoner and was being grilled for information. I finally asked if we could address the problem at hand, my dog is having problems urinating. He decided he would x-ray him, and would have to sedate him since my dog bites... how does he know my dog bites? They slapped a muzzle on him before giving him a chance, Being new to the area I left my dog there for x-rays. He had stones. But after picking my dog up I immediately decided to find another vet to assess the situation. I also feel I was horribly over charged. The visit, including x-rays and medications was almost $400.00. I noticed on the receipt one of the things done was a Prostate exam. I NEVER asked for a prostate exam, I wasn't even in there for that. This vet is not only rude and condescending, he is a rip off.
All in all, the people were rude to me and my dog. Incidentally, he doesn't have to be muzzled where he goes now, they even managed x-rays without sedation OR a muzzle. Amazing.
