Dr Dave is the best
Over the years he has cared for 3 of our dogs, my father's dog and a cat. I can't imagine a better vet. He knows our pets....he cares and he's been incredible kind and compassionate over the years. I guess that not everyone
can have the same experience but ours has been second to none. We would not dream of trusting our babies with
anyone but Dr Schwartz.
PET OWNERS PLEASE READ!!!
Last year Dr Schwartz removed a tumor from my dogs paw, did a biopsy and reported that it was NOT cancerous.
However, he said it could grow back, and if it did, it could be removed for "cosmetic" reasons. (his exact words).
Well, it did grow back and Dr Schwartz still said it was nothing to worry about.
Long story short, i collected my dogs records form Dr schwartz and received a 2nd and 3rd opinion regarding his tumor.
It turns out it was cancerous. it even said so in Dr Schwartz's records from the biopsy he did. Which leads me to believe he never once looked at the report in the 1st place.
sadly, since the cancer has taken over his entire paw, his leg now needs to be amputated.
i am sharing this story so pet owners can avoid this vet at all costs. His negligence is not only costing my poor dog his leg but all the stress and money that comes with it.
I am shocked this man still has a license and plan on reporting him to the veterinary medical board.
DR. SCHWARTZ IS HORRID – The 1 star goes for the very pleasent guys and girls who wrk behind the desk!
This Dr. is extreamely RUDE! will never bring my dog to him ever ever again- I was quoted $95 from front desk blood wrk would be $95 ... so decided to stay being it was sunday and holiday and my vet was closed- when he quoted me $165 I told him that wasnt what i was quoted - he rudely snapped at me how she was wrong - I told him he didnt need to be so rude, i was there to help my dog and 95 was what i was quoted and he got more rude- I told him i wouldnt ever put my pet in his hands and will never give him my business ever!
I knew he had bad very bad reviews- but waas going to be charged twice for going back to emergency clinic- BIG MISTAKE.... mr normal vet has INTEGRITY and compassion for animals over there wallot!!!!
Don't think twice. Dr. Schwartz is one superb vet. – Dr. Schwartz is smart, thorough, honest and -- surprise, surprise (if you've read some of the negative reviews here) -- markedly kind and caring to both pets and their owners.
(And his staff is a blast, by the way!)
He's kept our puppy happy and healthy.
Who could ask for anything more?
Confused by negative reviews – If you want your hand held and a vet that's going to tell you what a wonderful person you are don't go here. Dr Swartz may be a bit direct, but he is amazing with animals! If you want the best possible care for your pet at reasonable rates this is the place to go. His incredibly friendly staff more than makes up for his direct nature.
We love Dr. Shwartz and his fantastic staff – I can't believe all the negative reviews on this site. Jeez. I guess I've been visiting Blvd. on good days.
Dr. Shwartz has been our vet for over 7 years now. He's looked over all our cats and dogs and has been great w/each and every one of them. When our Frenchie got bit by a rattlesnake, he quickly took care of matters quickly got her back on her feet although it did cost us pretty penny.
We have since moved to Calabasas but I still trek all the way to Studio City because I trust Dr. Shwartz. His staff have always been professional, friendly, and quick to get me an appointment if needed.
I say before you believe all the reviews you read, you should try visiting the clinic yourself.
No Smile, Expensive, but Great Pet Care – I still go back after never getting a smile. The office always can get me in. The doctor always helps in an emergency. The fees are super high.. Don't you dare question fees or you will get a serious frown... The long and short of it is... The staff makes up for the very uptight doctor. They are the best. Just expect that you will be treated with zero respect by the doctor and do not take it personally. You animal will be in great hands, but you will get the love from the staff.
Wonderful – Yesterday I had to make the biggest decision of my life, and that was to put my dog to sleep. Everyone at Blvd. Pet Clinic was amazing and supportive. Dr. Shwartz was incredibly calm and caring as he explained the situation to me. He seemed genuinely sad and I could tell he really was concerned.
One of the receptionists came in to the office and brought me kleenex as I cried. They were all very sympathetic and gave me the time I needed to say good bye to my baby and recompose myself before I left.
I had also been there several times with my dog and each time I was treated well and Dr. Schwartz always explained everything thoroughly.
I will continue going there with my other dog.
Best Vet EVER! – Dr Dave saved my cat. He, unfortunately, had developed kitty asthma due to being around a smoker outside. Another vet gave him a shot of prednisone that cured the asthma but was killing his liver, shutting down his kidneys and gave him transitory diabetes and a urinary infection on top of it all. We thought he was a goner for sure. Enter Dr Dave. After a 4-day stay, Iddo was all better, and an almost new cat. Dr Dave gave Iddo another five good years, and finally went to the Kitty Angels when he was 15. We now take our new kitties to Dr Dave, and they couldn't be healthier or happier! Highly recommend!
AWEFUL DOCTOR, AWESFUL TREATMET, INHUMANE, AND INSENSITIVE. – PLEASE DON'T GO TO BLVD PET CLINIC WITH ANY OF YOUR ANIMALS!!!
My cat seemed to be peeing excessively and I, being an overly protective mama, decided I should take her in to get checked to make sure there was nothing really wrong with her like diabetes.
Dr. Swartz basically accused me of animal abuse when none of the tests came back conclusive, saying, "I'm sticking with my stance that it must be trauma at home." I know this is not true because I run a VERY zen calm massage therapy business out of my home and my cat LOVES every single one of my clients and they do her as well. She had an EXTREMELY cush life. I decided to overlook his insensitivity and asked what he would recommend next. He said to take her home and watch her and he gave me a once a day medication for inflamation. He gave her one dose in the office and I took her home. That night she got really sick and started peeing all red. The next day she seemed a little better but I called Dr. Swartz for advice since I had read the label on the medication where in bold print it said NOT FOR USE ON FELINES and was concerned it was making her sick. He scoffed at my concern and said, "I know what I'm doing! I've given this to cats a million times and they have been fine." I asked what else could possibly be wrong and he said, "I don't know. We can run more tests but it's gonna cost you. I'd say you should just listen to your vet and give her the medication!" Stupidly I gave her another dose that evening hoping indeed it WOULD help her get better. The next morning I woke to an even sicker kitty. Totally scared, I took her back to the clinic and dropped her off. Within the hour they called to say that she had died. When I went to pick up her body he took me in a back room where they put my dead cat in front of me while he claimed that it WAS probably the medication that took her life but that he couldn't have known (WHAT????? IT says in the label!!!) and then he tried to negotiate a price with me saying "Well, I did TRY to save your cat today!" What a creep.
I'm devastated and shocked.
PLEASE don't go the this clinic if you value your pet's life and if you have any self respect. This guy won't treat you OR your animal with any kind of respect or decency.
