My Best Friend Lives!!!.
My best friend Teddy... Lives
Ok Ok a little dramatic, but he is my first dog. A Plott Hound mix, east coast hound, full of energy...
Needs at least 10 acres to clean a day, jumps out of a small screened window and dislocates his left hip, up and forward. In urban Long Beach,CA.
The good part is that the good souls at Signal Hill Animal Hospital made Teddy's surgery happen quick and painless as possible. Thank you Doctors-Boctor and Attalla (cry now laugh later- these Docs are far from chicken) and the front end staff; helpful, lovely, and full of hard working heart- Christina-Clarissa-Adriana-made me feel like they were in MY living room! ;)
It was a surreal experience for me... I felt I was back in Peru sipping chicken soup with the Ayahuascero whispering something in my ear far away... that every thing is going to be alright, so long as we listen to our hearts and not neglect the animals that chose to light our paths. Mom, Lisa, John, Evan- THANK YOU for Everything...
Good People for Animals Here!!!!
P.S. Thank you Pacha Mama! Your song still is in me stirring... soup...
Love to you guys- thanks,
Not Happy. I can't even begin to explain how horrible the vet was. She is so cold and only spent about five minutes with my cat. She didn't even look at me when she was talking and barely looked or touched my cat. She talked so fast and had a horribly ugly accent. Then she ran out of the room after saying that she was going to get me an estimate and never returned. One of the nurses came in with the estimate and asked me if I wanted to go ahead with what the vet wanted to do. At that point I knew she just wanted money. I decided to run out of that awful place as fast as I could. That awful ugly vet is a retched woman who should not work with animals. No heart at all.
terrible.. my dog has seen 2 different vets there, dr. atalla and dr. boctor. (yes thats his name, doctor boctor) i should have known after the first visit to never go back to these people. they are rude, pushy, rough with my dog, and charge you for things they never tell you they are going to do. both of them walked in and instead of introducing themselves, easing their way up to my scared puppy, or anything..they literally snatch my dog up and started roughly checking her out. im never going back!
They saved my dog.
My dog stopped eating for 3 days, I was referred to signal hill, once I was in the exam room and the doctor examined my dog, she knew exactly what my dog had, she recommended certain tests to confirm her diagnosis and she was right, my dog had a uterus infection, and she took her to surgery right away.....
I highly recommend signal hill, they are great
would never go anywhere else. First time I have been there, I had to wait a littele longer than I thought, as they were very busy....but after seeing the doctor and after they treated my cat, I understood, why it is busy..they are great, straight to the point...and they explain every thing ...
Great hospital. Great doctors, excellent staff...they took excellent care of my dog, and their cost is very reasonable
FECES covered facility, NO customer service, 5 days there and my puppy looks frail from weightloss.
My puppy was sick with Parvo and had to spend time at this 'Vets' office. The facility was FILTHY, the wall across from my dog had feces on it. There was a stack of cones on the floor, this too was COVERED in feces.
The 'vet', Dr. Atalla was INCREDIBLY RUDE, she apparently thought she knew me so well in the few minutes that I was meeting with her that she felt she could interrupt me every half sentence. When I finally asked her if she would just let me finish my sentence she interrupted me again.
My dog is 12 weeks old and had a healthy weight, since she was at their facility her bones are protruding from her, I can see her ribs as well as her hips as easily as can be, she looks frail. Its no wonder too, when I went to go visit her her IV wasn't even in! How the hell is she to get any kind of nutrients??!?!? She's not eating!
We were constantly told one thing and having another thing done.
DO NOT TAKE YOUR PET HERE! I wish I never had!
P.S. DOESN"T ANYONE ELSE THINK ITS ODD THAT 6 REVIEWS (ALL POSITIVE) WERE ALL GIVEN ON THE SAME DAY?! FALSE REVIEWS MUCH?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
terrible experience. The staff never aknowledged me when I walked in. I had to ask the receptionist if I had to fill out paper work since I was a new customer. She said she would bring it to me and she did. After filling out the paper work the receptionist called me into the room. She verified with me that I was in there for a teeth trim only. I said yes. (Keep in mind a week before I made the reservation I called to see if they require an exam for a rabbit and I was told no. And again when I made the appointment I was told no exam was required.)After weighing her she said the doctor will be right with me. When the doctor came in he nvere introduced himself. He looked at her teeth and again reinterated that I just wanted a teeth filing. Again yes. Ugh! He said he will be right back. Several minutes later a nurse came in and brought me an estimate. The first thing I saw and heard her say was "For today's visit it will be $39 for the exam". WHAT!? I told her I was told on two seperate occasions that there's no exam and that is one of the reasons I came (there isn't anything to exam on a rabbit). She said she would be back. She came in a few minutes later and stated she spoke with the office manager and anythime the doctor looks at the pet there is an exam fee. I replied I'm not going to pay an exam fee. A few minutes later the office manager came in and reinterated what the nurse said and said they like to have the doctor do the exam on the first visit to build that patien doctor realtionship. I told her there was no relationship built because he didn't do anything but look at her teeth. He didn't say much to me. She said I was right and was told that there would be no exam so they would waive the exam fee. I then asked her how much for the teeth trim and she said $35. At that point I had to leave because I was told over the phone that it would be $20. I still have to make another appointment elsewhere to get my rabbit's teeth taken care of. Don't ever go here. It's the worst.
resonable cost. I 've always taken my dogs for yearly check-ups @signal hill hospital, Never had any complaints about the cost ,very resonable, and the vets really care.
Cool boarding for cats. clean place and nice boarding facility for my cat. Staff is always greeting you with a smile. they have dool "condos'' for cats.
