RATED 2  Star Rating - Below Expectations - Try at Own Risk (2 stars) by GODSCOUNTRY on Jul-20-2014 Report Abuse
Below Expectations - Try at Own Risk     I thought the staff was very friendly and professional when I dropped off the cat.When my cat got sick, they said about 310.00 for the blood test and other tests.Being on SS,I said can I pay you half and the balance next week,no all or nothing.That was it,after bringing in the cat every couple of month and gladly paying the bill,they couldn't care less about the cat.I brought the cat home,that night it started to get really sick,foaming at the mouth,losing its vision,my kids watched the poor thing running into the wall,they were screaming ,daddy do something walls,it was devastington to watch.Had I come in off the street,yes I could understand them saying no,we don't know you,but I was a regular customer.I had to put the cat down,I refused to let it suffer,poison ?,did she eat something,I don't know My kids never ever talked about that cat again,they were so upset.Why they didn't trust me,I will never know.In business,sometimes we do have to show a little faith,loyalty to our customers

Unacceptable - Watch Out, Buyer Beware!     TOO EXPENSIVE!!!!!

RATED 3  Star Rating - As Expected - OK to Recommend (3 stars) by FIREFLY1 on Mar-03-2012 Report Abuse
As Expected - OK to Recommend     I brought my pups to this vetnarian office a couple of times. The vet I saw has since opened his own practice. All of the vets were fine the only problem I have is that in my opinion this place is very expensive. You dont necessarily have to pay an arm and a leg to get quality medical care for your pets. I have since changed vets and I am totally happy with my vet and they charge less but I get the same quality care for my pups. Just my opinion.

RATED 5  Star Rating - Top of the Line - Highly Recommended (5 stars) by L8MEGAN on Oct-26-2011 Report Abuse
Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     Dr. Rogers is my hero! Her & her team saved my dog Opie's life. Safe Haven allowed me even as a new patient to bring him in immediately w/o an apt. He had somehow severed a artery on his tongue. The Safe Haven staff was extremely kind, compassionate, caring, & informative. I greatly appreciated their updates during the surgery & that they allowed me to come back b4 he woke up 2 see exactly what they had done. I was concerned because I Love my dog, but the economy has all but made me starve. I didn't have the money to pay for his treatment, they recommended I apply for something called carecredit that would allow low monthly payments 6 mos.interest free. If not for their help i would not have my dog today and I cant imagine my tomorrows w/o him.Thank-You Safe Haven, Dr. Rogers & all your vet techs. I smile everyday when I look at my dog, and we're Very Grateful to Safe Haven and all their staff. Thank-You more than words can tell =) If you value your pets lives you will visit Safe Haven

RATED 1  Star Rating - Unacceptable - Watch Out, Buyer Beware! (1 stars) by DIZINS on May-10-2011 Report Abuse
Unacceptable - Watch Out, Buyer Beware!     I was going to safe haven for yrs. and brought my dog to get his nails clipped. I was not happy at all what they did usually I went in with him (he is not crazy about the vets) but this time they took him in and told me to wait they will bring hgim back to me when done. I hear a dog barking I peek in the door and see my dog in a cage barking like crazy. That upset me so much they told me he was in the waiting area and this is their new procedure. Very upset my dog could not stay with me until they were ready to clip his nails so yes that was my last visit there. Found a new Vet and wow they are so much cheaper...and office is great..

RATED 4  Star Rating - Well Done - Would Use Again (4 stars) by JOANNPEREZ on Feb-04-2011 Report Abuse
Well Done - Would Use Again     Wonderful staff and service, REALLY care about their patients! A bit expensive, but I prefer, even with 3 pets, to pay for quality vet care and not risk misdiagnosis (as I had in the past when my first dog was a puppy and very ill). I wouldn't take my animals anywhere else, regardless of the price. We have been using Safe Haven for almost 10 years now. Highly recommended.

RATED 3  Star Rating - As Expected - OK to Recommend (3 stars) by YORKSTERMOM on Jul-29-2010 Report Abuse
As Expected - OK to Recommend     I used to use this vetnarian office as I do small breed rescue and often we get in a sick or injured pup that requires medical attention, but I too found them to be a bit pricey compared to other vets in the area. Their new building is beautiful and I have no problem with any of the vetnarians at Safe Haven as they all seem to be caring and qualified. I just find the prices are a bit steep. I have since switched to Shelton Vetinary Hospital and I am quite satisfed with the quality of care as well as the cost of the care at Shelton. After all, my pups are my babies and I want to give them the best quality of life I can but I also need it to be affordable.

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     I can't thanked the staff enough at Safe Haven for being so caring, compassionate, and skillful. I recently lost one of my cats to cancer, such a tragic moment in my life! Even during this sad time Dr. Becker and her staff made the whole situation much more bearable with their kind words, sincerity and knowledge. They genuinely cared about my cat and my well-being. Dr. Becker went above and beyond what was asked of her and I truly appreciate it.

RATED 5  Star Rating - Top of the Line - Highly Recommended (5 stars) by CLEMENTINER on May-03-2010 Report Abuse
Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     Choosing the right vet when I moved here was crucial! I have an older large dog whom I knew required a lot of care as she aged. On a recommendation I first went to a vet on Old Kings Rd. where I was extremely displeased. They staff was indifferent, would stand right in front of me and ignore me & most importantly,the vet did not make a "connection" with my animal. After more searching, I FOUND SAFE HAVEN!!! DR. STUART AND HIS STAFF ARE ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! Their charges are more than fair! They take such an interest in my pet - they make her feel like a star! They ALWAYS have followed up by telephone after an exam or problem. They have the latest equipment - which is really important. They have even worked with me to get the "best price" for medication - even if it means I get it at another place. I RECOMMEND SAFE HAVEN to all of my friends and to anyone who wants the very best care and attention for their pet.

RATED 1  Star Rating - Unacceptable - Watch Out, Buyer Beware! (1 stars) by LTOM123 on Apr-24-2010 Report Abuse
Unacceptable - Watch Out, Buyer Beware!     I extremely feel that Safe Haven Veterinary way over charges its customers! The fees are outrageous! After initially seeing the vet for a condition - which you pay a 40.00 office visit plus if they did anything further in the exam room that is extra, plus medicines, etc.. Ok , understandable! You are told to come back for a "Follow-Up" from the initial diagnosis from the vet. Sounds normal right? Well after the follow- up you are charged another 40.00 Office visit plus if he looked in the ear -35.00 or anything else $$$$. 4.00 Bio -Hazard fee- (I can throw out my own Q-tip- I can see if it is a stool sample or blood work-understandable ). But to pay another office visit for a "Follow -Up " from his original diagnosis is upsurd and then pay for an exam inside the room! Everytime I go here - I never leave without paying less than 100-200.00 dollars - who has that kind of money! I feel it is a rip off - and will be seeking vet care elsewhere!!!

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     I bought my puppy on a Friday afternoon from a local farm. The pup was flea ridden and had an open wound on its back paw. On a recommendation, I went to the vet on Old Kings Road, who despite my pup's poor condition, turned us away (wouldn't even let us just wait for an opening) because we didn't have an appointment. I went to Safe Haven who gave our pup a quick check over, prescribed some medications for the fleas and the wound, gave us instructions for their use, then set us up with an appointment for a full checkup the following week. Since that time, we stayed with Safe Haven, who has shown nothing but expert care for our dog AND our cat. Their staff and doctors (especially Dr. Terri Rosado) are knowledgeable, and are wonderful and caring with our pet. I highly recommend this veterinary service.

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     Went there yesterday for my dog and the staff was wonderful! It has the best doctors and vet techs in the area. My boyfriend and I were both happy with the quality of attention our pet received there.I am so happy we were recommended there by the staff and that we have found a great place for our dog (and cat!)

RATED 3  Star Rating - As Expected - OK to Recommend (3 stars) by LANCETHEPOOLGUY on Sep-23-2007 Report Abuse
As Expected - OK to Recommend     I believe that I have recieved decent service from Safe Haven Vet/Grooming service. Notice that I left the part of the title that says hospital because it certianly is not by any stretch of the imagination a hospital. Dog sick near to close go to Daytona. Dog sick after hours goto Daytona. Well as I said they do a good job with my dog as long as it's during normal business hours.

Below Expectations - Try at Own Risk     I called to get my doggie in she's having intestinal problems and they told me they couldn't see her that they would schedule her to come in later in the week, if you have a sick dog you can't wait for the end of the week...i will take my doggie somewhere else that they will see her right away.

RATED 5  Star Rating - Top of the Line - Highly Recommended (5 stars) by KAWOLF on Apr-14-2007 Report Abuse
Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     The vets (particularly Dr van Deijk) are superior. They are always very patient with me (neurotic parent) and take the time to explain everything in great detail. They are a little pricey but honestly, only you can decide what it's worth to have your pets in the best possible hands. I wish them just the very best in their new "home".

RATED 4  Star Rating - Well Done - Would Use Again (4 stars) by YIPPEE on Mar-06-2007 Report Abuse
Well Done - Would Use Again     The staff is great. They take their time with both our dogs and one cat. Each one there is a true animal lover and knows that our pets are our family. The facility is always clean and well taken care of. When their new place opens, it will offer much more.

RATED 5  Star Rating - Top of the Line - Highly Recommended (5 stars) by JILL on Mar-04-2007 Report Abuse
Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     I was there a few days ago so that my dog could have an emergency c-section. Dr. Rosado was very caring and compassionate. She let me stay with my dog in a quiet area to keep her calm and comfortable before her surgery. They were very busy and still made time for us. I would never bring my pets to another vet. Safe Haven really cares about your animals - they aren't just after your money. They even helped me with a payment plan. I highly recommend Safe Haven to anyone who loves their pets and wants whats best for them.

RATED 3  Star Rating - As Expected - OK to Recommend (3 stars) by LAVENDERBLUE on Feb-14-2007 Report Abuse
As Expected - OK to Recommend     They have gotten out of hand with their charges. I think they are paying for their new building and new equipment. I have spent way too much money over the past month and one-half. An example: Antibiotic charge $28.00 - My pharmacist said that medication should only cost about $8.00. We are sadly pulling our three dogs from their care because we can no longer afford them. Good luck Safe Haven. I hope your happy in your new digs and with your new equipment. You may price yourself out of business. Recommend only if you have deep pockets.

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     I would recommend Safe Haven to everyone. Have been taing my dogs there for over 10 years. Everyone there treats tje animals with kindness, gentleness and love. Dr. Stewart is the best vet I have used. He even called me when one of my dogs was terminally ill, just to see how things were. Can't wait to see his new hospital.

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     I have had pets all my life and of the many different animal hospitals I have delt with throughout the years I must say Dr Stuart and his awesome staff are "Top of the line"! The facility is kept clean and smelling good. The receptionist are always courteous and friendly. The doctors are all very professional and caring. I recommend Safe Haven Animal Hospital to everyone! :-)

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     I've been to three different vet offices over the past two years and none of them have been very helpful. My dog has been sick on and off for a little over a year now and Safe Haven was the first to suggest a food allergy and to switch his food. So far it's working and my dog hasn't gotten sick since switching to perscription food. I'm confident they will do everything they can to make him better. Dr. Wegenast is the most caring and detailed when it comes to treating my puppy! She has done more to help me find out what's wrong with my dog in the past two weeks and any other vet has done in two years. I wish every vet were as caring and concerned about helping a sick pet as she is!

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     I have taken my pets to Safe Haven since they opened. I have gone through the trauma of losing two kitties in the past three years and the doctors were always compassionate and sympathetic to my grief. Dr. Stuart and Dr. VanDeijk are wonderful vets, they were very caring and both did all that was medically possible to keep my kitties comfortable and warm when it was their time to go. I would never trust my pets to anyone but them.

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     I went to Safe Haven over two years ago with a very sick cat. Both Lee Stewart and myself worked hard to save my "Squeaky" but one week later I had to put him to sleep. Lee was so considerate and aware of my loss. He was not just a "VET" he was a friend to console me. I would recommend Safe Haven to anyone that treats their animal like one of the family.

Top of the Line - Highly Recommended     Wonderful staff and veterinarians. My pets have been treated so well by everyone at Safe Haven. They even treated my hamster - and that was the only vet I could find who would help him! They also diagnosed my dog with cancer after he had been misdiagnosed elsewhere. I will always go to Safe Haven for my pets.
