  • Wonderful experience

    -Stacie from Collingdale, PA
    Pet Name: Jake

    We recently brought our dog, Jake, and the staff could not have been more helpful. Dr. Johnson did a great job. I especially want to thank my patient outreach coordinator Donna Interrante, who was exceptionally kind and patient. She made the whole process bearable and we will always be extremely grateful for all her help!

  • Missy's Story

    -SLB from Drexel Hill, PA

    We've been bringing our two cats to see Dr. Tannert for several years. She is extremely knowledgeable and empathetic; we love her--she's the best!

    We brought Missy in to be examined by Dr. Tannert. Being a stray, Missy had issues that needed immediate attention. Dr. Tannert did a great job, especially treating her ear hematoma which did not require surgery. She suggested that Missy should have a feline dental cleaning in the near future with Dr. Fitzgibbon.

    Last month we had to bring her in as an emergency. She was seen by Dr. Murray who was so kind and attentive. The time had arrived for Missy's dental cleaning.

    Dr. Fitzgibbon took care of our cat, Gaston for a dental cleaning and extractions. We were extremely pleased with her work so, we knew Missy would be in good hands. She informed us during the cleaning that she needed two extractions and why she needed them. Missy is now recovering & eating well--no visible signs of any problems from the extractions. Dr. Fitzgibbon is thorough, caring and compassionate; thank you for the TLC.

    Don't want to forget to mention Terry who is the technician supervisor--she was a big help to us with Missy. Also, want to mention Donna who scheduled the surgery and was kind enough to personally follow up with us.

  • Thank You All for saving me, MiMi

    -Mimi from Chester, PA

    Pet Image I wanna thank Dr. Patel and the entire staff for taking great care of me so I could go back home to my Mommy and Daddy.

    I got attacked by a Pit Bull, had 3 broken ribs, punctured Liver and Lung, collapsed lung, and other small cuts and bruises, but I made it and healed up enough to go home in THREE DAYS !!!!!

    I will come back to visit you all!!!!

  • Gratitude and Appreciation

    -Averill's from Newtown Square, PA
    Pet Name: Harley, Leo and Cali

    Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation for all the staff at VCA Old Marple Animal Hospital especially Dr. Fitzgibbon. She has been very helpful in the past with our cats. We value her opinion and compassion with Harley, Leo and Cali.

    We recently had the opportunity to meet Donna Interrante who was most helpful.

    We have no problem recommending VCA Old Marple to anyone.

  • Dr. Lawrie's the best

    -Brownie's mom from media, PA

    We have a sweet but anxious, skittish guinea pig who does not like to be held. We took her for her annual physical this morning, and she was also due to have her nails clipped. Dr. Lawrie was kind, gentle, confident, patient, and caring with Brownie. He took his time examining her, checking her teeth and eyes, and clipping her nails. He has a wonderful manner, one we have not seen before in others who have handled Brownie. Fortunately, Brownie is healthy now, but we will not hesitate to bring her back if her health should fail in any way. Thank you Dr. Lawrie!!

  • Fantastic

    -Allison Jo Stoutland from Rose Valley, PA
    Pet Name: Cornell

    I was so uncomfortable to be in the position of having to take our dog with a lame front paw to an emergency clinic. After reading reviews I called VCA Old Marple Animal Hospital. Allison was the person who answered the phone and made me feel very comfortable to come on in. Then I met the Emergency Vet Dr. Robert Gaunt, excellent! He was thorough, concerned, courteous, patient, great personality with both me and my dog. But best of all I never felt like he was in a rush, he took the time to understand my dog's medical history and his physical body. He spent the time explaining all our options and helped me choose a plan that was both good for my pet and my pocketbook. When he was complete Matt came in and reviewed what had been done and the follow plans. Excellent and thorough care!

  • Great Comfort Level

    -Linda from Springfield, PA
    Pet Name: Abby

    Our puppy needed to be spayed. Since VCA Old Marple is a 24hr. hospital, we knew that she was not alone during the night hours. That was very important to us. Whenever I called to check on her, either Donna (the patient coordinator who's exceptional) or a tech (Amanda was especially sweet) would be only too happy to give a report on her progress. Dr. Will must have been gentle because she shows no signs of discomfort. We made the right decision to have the spaying done at this facility.

  • Gratitude and praise

    -Patricia from Swarthmore, PA
    Pet Name: Ellie

    For Dr. Martinez,
    My cat Ellie of 21 yrs took ill and thankfully Dr. Martinez was on duty. Dr. Martinez was caring and gentle. It was a very sad night for me and my family but Dr. Martinez made it as peaceful as he could and made me feel ok about letting her go. I miss her very much and will always be grateful for this Doctor.

  • My sweet cavalier king charles Jack. RIP

    -Carol Quinn from Media, PA
    Pet Name: my Sweet Jack as puppy RIP

    Pet Image At around 4am on 4/12/13 my sweet Jack woke us up in distress. He was only 7.5 years old. I called ahead to let the staff know I was bringing him in the ER. He sadly passed away as I pulled in the lot. I don't remember the names of the staff that night. But they showed so much caring and compassion to me and sweet Jack. I received a sympathy card from VCA that following week along with Jack's paw print and a lock of hair. It was such a thoughtful gesture that meant so much to me. I LOVE the staff at VCA. We recently adopted a 3 month old Cavalier named Lizzy. She just had her first visit with Dr Tannert and was treated like royalty. Thanks to the staff for taking such good care of our family! They are the best!!!

  • Glad To Return, Exceptional PetCare

    -Pat Dunn from Drexel Hill, PA
    Pet Name: Mellisond Valentine

    I just want to take a moment to state VCA Old Marple was a good vet-hospital in the past but I moved on after one of your vets had done the same. Recently I got a good word from my friend Colleen how you took such good care of her Boxer-Sarge that I returned, needing quality care for my Melli siameser and want to say, WOW! Not only do you have the best vet-care I have seen in my 62-years/(40 being in medicine myself), state-of-the-art facility but your people/client connection is exceptional. Dr. Will/vet is intelligent/capable/competent and has a way with the animals that they seem to love to be there/at a hospital yet - and your patient care coordinator, Donna, goes above and beyond duty, making my experience with stress/sick cat so much less stressful and actually enjoyable to be there. These two employees of yours are TERRIFIC, a real pleasure (actual personalities). Great experience, prices in line with the exceptional state-of-the-art care and I am going to highly recommend you to all my friends (animal lovers of course, with many varied dogs/cats) as the doctor/hospital for them. I will be bringing my Melli back hopefully for years (she is already 14), or any other small ones I may acquire because of my excellent/inspired experience with Dr. Will/Donna and VCA. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, America needs you. Thanks gratefully, pd/MelliMeser
