My daughter's dog kept squinting -- I needed a good dog eye doctor. We have a vet in Los Angeles who sent us to animal eye doctor Dr. Silverman after several weeks of trying to cure this. The animal eye vet used a special instrument to see the front and back of the eye. He saw there was a thorn in her eye and removed it that day while we waited. We got in the same day. Very happy with the service here.
My dog had a deep ulcer that was not healing. My vet in Los Angeles referred me to the animal eye specialist at Complete Animal Eyecare Center which was close by. The animal eye doctor got me in the same day and took care of the ulcer easily. I liked this animal ophthalmologist from the start. He is very understanding and put me at ease. The staff here is also very good. My Bulldog, Theo, is now out of pain and seeing very well. Yesterday the cone was able to come off -- my dog needed to wear it while the healing in the eye was happening. We went to the dog park in the afternoon and had a great time.
This animal eye specialist really impressed me. My dog was scheduled for surgery but the dog's blood count was low. The veterinary ophthalmologist Dr. Silverman did not try to push me into surgery. This animal eye doctor waited and worked with my vet in Los Angeles to bring up the white blood count. I don't know if another eye specialist would have done that. I was struck with his caring and thoroughness.
I needed a veterinary ophthalmologist in Los Angeles when I moved from Wash. DC. My Lab Rocky is receiving ongoing treatment for glaucoma. His records were sent to Complete Animal Eyecare. I have gotten very good treatment here.
When you have an aggressive dog, you need a good animal ophthalmologist. Dr. Silverman in the San Fernando Valley helped quite a bit. This vet eye doctor was at first unable to do the exam due to my dog's aggressiveness. My Pit Bull, Sam, would not quiet down enough to be held still which is very important when the vet eye doctor has to get near the eye with a microscope. However, the animal ophthalmologist did not charge me for the appointment, though it took time to find out my dog would not allow the animal eye doctor close enough to complete the exam. This animal ophthalmologist gave me tranquilizers, at no charge (!) and rescheduled the appointment. When I gave the medication to Sam and came back, I found my dog examined in full with a complete exam for the price quoted. I would recommend Complete Animal Eyecare Center. Sam needs a small surgery I am going to take care of at this eye care hospital.
My rescue from the Van Nuys pound developed cataracts in both eyes. One was too far gone and had glaucoma, but the other eye was operated on successfully. While it was an expensive procedure as well as one that requires medication and follow-up visits, it was well worthwhile. The dog is only 6 years old. Too young to be blind. He is now happy, romps in the yard, enjoys the daily walk with the other dog, and is thriving. Dr. Silverman and staff are terrific. I recommend them without reservation!
I had heard that animal eye doctors in Los Angeles charged a lot so I was a bit nervous going to an animal ophthalmologist. My Yorkie did have a deep ulcer and needed surgery. I had scheduled it with animal eye doctor Dr. Silverman. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Silverman felt the eye was better. This veterinary ophthalmologist refused to push me into surgery which was not needed. He was honest with me and treated my dog very well. I am going back to check again next week but it looks like my Yorkie is doing much better because of my careful use of the drops prescribed, and his own healing. This animal eye surgeon is excellent. I am grateful for his truthfulness.
We needed to be seen on an emergency basis and were very impressed when we called Dr. Silverman 9:00 p.m. on a Saturday night. Our dog's eye had a melting corneal ulcer and we needed to be seen by an eye specialist right away. Dr. Silverman met us at Complete Animal Eye care within forty five minutes of our call. He explained everything to us thoroughly. His help saved the vision of our dog. To find a doctor this dedicated is extremely rare.
Our 10-year old black lab mix Lucy had suddenly gone blind due to diabetes a few months ago. Our vet referred us to Dr. Silverman and we are very happy he did. He diagnosed her with cataracts in both eyes and ran a series of tests to determine if she was eligible for surgery, which she was. As long as we scheduled the surgery within 30 days, which of course we did, we were refunded the complete amount for the tests, which was considerable. He removed her lenses and replaced them with artificial lenses. The surgery was successful - her left eye rejected the artificial lens, but we learned that a lens is not necessary for vision - and she appears to have perfect vision again. Her right eye compensates for the impaired vision on her left side. She runs and jumps as if she had years removed from her life. I like to add that there was a 3 week recovery period that was rigorous and that included up to 7 different drop and 3 different pills several times a day, which we administered strictly according to schedule. I believe Dr. Silverman knows what he is doing, but it's important that you do your part and follow the instructions, as well. It is obvious that he cares deeply about the animals in his care. We have been to specialists before and have been charged considerably more for considerably less. We have also dialed his after-hours number before, because we had been concerned over the way Lucy's eye had looked a few days after surgery, and he picked up immediately. We would recommend Dr. Silverman to anyone.
This is an excellent close by facility with a great animal ophthalmologist. We have taken our dogs here for years. It is amazing to me that anyone can be so hostile and write such exaggerated and ridiculous posts. Yelp is known to filter good reviews when doctors don't agree to their terms. Nothing suspicious about it. People can write reviews, like the long rambling one on this site, that is so twisted it is almost as if the person has nothing better to do. Our dog had folds rubbing into his cornea and needed surgery -- a very painful condition -- however, the price was nowhere near as high as in this novel length post. All tests were necessary, reasonable, and the work done was excellent. Our dog sees beautifully. At no time were we pushed into surgery. This doctor was referred highly by my vet, and has excellent bedside manner. When people write such mean spirited and hateful words, which breaks YELP's own rules, I have to wonder about the emotional stability of the author. This doctor has been nothing but completely ethical with us.
