Owner, Dr. Fling, and office staff take time to know the "ins and outs" of your pets, and your concerns. I'd go back!
Highly Recommend Dr. Brittney Barton. I have to respectfully disagree with R.H.'s personal and professional assessment of Dr. Bayles-Barton. While I am sorry they had a unfortunate experience, I do not believe that it is right to try and ruin a person's reputation. Dr. Barton is currently treating a dog I am responsible for and she has gone above and beyond to do everything she can to save this dogs life. The dog is in extremely poor condition through no fault of its own (it came from a puppy mill) but I truly believe that it is Dr. Barton's expertise and care that is going to help her pull through. She is through in her examinations, has sought out expert opinions on certain aspects of the case and has done an excellent job keeping me informed as to the treatment plan and prognosis. Eastlake is lucky to have her as a part of their outstanding team.
WORST Vet Hospital I've ever been to!!. NIGHTMARE of a hospital!! Where to begin... Well, the front staff is pretty much completely incapable of putting chat to a halt in order to receive patients in a timely manner.... Even when animals needing IMMEDIATE care are waiting in pain..... In addition, the Doctors here fly out the door every couple of months or so, so don't plan on seeing the same Vet....ever. And certainly don't except any sort of diligence from any of the staff members regarding animal care, test results, etc. Oh, and to top it off, they were trying to charge me FOUR TIMES the amount for a procedure that another wonderful clinic performed promptly using an incredibly well-established Doctor. If you care about your animal at all, don't bother with this hospital. You'll regret it....unless you enjoy sitting around, wasting your time.
Great Quality Pet Care. OK radyfurst, if I want my pet to be mistreated and get higher prices than Eastlake I will take him to City Vet. It is your responsibility as a pet owner to educate yourself about your pet's needs, and no one forces you to agree to any test. I worked at City Vet Uptown briefly and the treatment there is horrible! Just read the reviews about City Vet and you will see what I mean. Granted Eastlake is not cheap, if you want cheap get your animal beat up by Petmobile or Banfield like the rest of the ill informed petowners.
over priced. many of the reviews here talk about how great the place is and you get what you pay for however there are other vets that do not consistantly overcharge their customers for everything. everytime I take my dog in they use fear factor to do more tests and charge more...the vets sometimes are good and other times actually mean. I had one guy there that stuck a stick so deep in my dogs ear she yelped and he said oh that is natural...PLEASE. try city vet. cheaper nice and good vets
This vet will give you a headache!. I went to this vet for a while when I first moved to Dallas after having it recommended to me. The first few times I went it was fine and I saw a good vet, but after that it became an absolute nightmare. When I got my second dog, I brought him in and was told but the vet that he was 3 years old and needed $900 of dental surgery or he would lose all his teeth (several other vets all confirmed that he was 6 months and did not need anything done to his teeth). The vet insisted on it even though I told him that the people I adopted him from got him when he was a few weeks old and that he was only 6 months. Then I booked boarding at East Lake for my two dogs when I was flying out of state. I called the day before to confirm and everything was set, and then when I showed up to drop the dogs off they said that I was not in the system and that they were fully booked so I could not leave my dogs there. I almost missed my flight after spending an HOUR AND A HALF trying to work it out with the people there and ended up being able to leave them in the medical section with the sick dogs rather than having them boarded with the other dogs who were just there for a visit. After that I knew I could not rely on them at all. The one good thing about East Lake is that when you need your flea and heartworm medicine, they will match the prices you find online (from sites like 1800petmeds) if you bring in the printout showing what the medicine is currently selling for.
