Wow I'm so glad I came in for a third opinion. The staff was very welcoming, the facility was clean and smelled great. The doctors were very
nice and caring. The estimate I received was a fraction of the price that the other two clinics gave me. I’m so glad I found my forever veterinarian.
Thank you and everyone for making me feel comfortable and making my pet feel better!



Thank you so much for taking such great care of my baby! I've been looking for a vet for weeks now and I finally found one! Prices are affordable, the vets are very nice and the staff was very welcoming. I tried a vet down the street and it wasn't as pleasant as this one. Another great thing is that
they speak several languages English, Spanish, Portuguese, etc which makes it easier to communicate. I definitely recommend Animal hospital of
Hallandale!

one more thing i forgot to mention i was a WALK IN and was in and out! So excited to have Dr. Barbosa and Dr. Cepeda as my veterinarians.


Everyone at Animal Hospital of Hallandale was incredibly kind, informative, and helpful to my dog and I. The staff was very attentive to my dog and
treated her very well during her shots and tests, keeping her incredibly calm and making her feel safe. It was also very affordable. I am happy to
make this my primary vet in broward county now that I’m a resident!

I sincerely say this is one of the best vets in Miami. Reasonably priced and most importantly actually care ! They accommodated my tough schedule,
when I called numerous times in regards to my kittens health they helped no hesitation and no attitude. They are all so friendly and after surgery they called two days later to see how hes doing and if I have any questions!❤❤❤ truly grateful and customer for life!


I recently took my dog to Dr. Barbosa for an Ear hemotoma and the service that he provided was immeasurable. Not only was the price affordable, but the staff treated us like family. Dr. Barbosa thoroughly explained the procedure and what to expect in the coming days and even showed me pictures of past procedures. After the procedure was done, I was given prescriptions for Lily and told when and how to give her the after care medicines. The following day Lily was jumping around and back to her normal self. Just when I thought the hospitality would end, I got follow up calls throughout the week checking up on Lily to make sure she was doing well. This place really cares and is not like most Veterinarian offices where they charge you an arm and a leg and then send you packing. I would DEFINITELY recommend bringing your furry family members here



Took my baby here for the first time and was extremely pleased with the service... minimal waiting they had availability that worked with my schedule today. It’s really Clean, and they were very informative just all around pleasant visit.

Our family has used Dr. Barbosa since the day he arrived at the animal hospital and we have been loyal clients of the hospital there on Hallandale Beach Blvd. since the early 1970's! Never been or trusted our animals anywhere else! Best care, service, staff, personality, caring, and prompt attention as well as being an honest and fair business. I lost my cat this month, and there was a mix up on her final bill, and they called me with an $85 credit to my account. WHEN was the last time a business called YOU to let you know you had a credit with them? They wanted to let me know next time I was in the area, drop by to get the balance, or I can keep the credit toward a future visit. That's just how they roll- honesty all the way. They never scam or cheat you. It's all in the best interests of you and your pet. Believe me, 45+ years of going there, I know of what I write. If you chance it somewhere else, be afraid... be very afraid...
Sincerely, Michelle Rio Hallandale Beach

Colt DeCasas

Thank you for your help today! Our cat Uni was lethargic for the last couple days & was starting to get us worried. Called in & AHA made us feel taken care of in a sense that they gave us all the information we needed to take care of her & get her into the center. From there the fill-in Dr. of the day was very informative, & meticulous to his craft to make sure she was taken care of. They provided us with the best care, reviewed tests to take precautionary measures, & provided us with reasonable payment options to get her the best treatment at an affordable price. She seems to be energized since the visit & back to moving around & saying hello to everyone. Will follow-up but the care today made it a lot less stressful than it could have been. Thanks Again!!

Nicole Raymor

The front staff, vet techs and doctors are very enganged and welcoming. It seems like a small family and not like a sterile clinic atmosphere. Dr. Barbosa is very conservative and is driven by the health and care of your pets over padding the final bill. I highly recommend this business.

Gracie Gonzalez

I have the pleasure to met Dr. Gary Pait, my first time there everyone was super cool..best place I'll definitely come back again.


Anna M

I don’t know who can give 1 star rating, probably fake profiles... I’ve been taking my cats there since 2010. And all I can say is doctor Barbosa, doctor Cepeda and the girls who work there are wonderful. Every time you visit them you feel like you and your pet are very special, lots of care and love. Yes, this place doesn’t look fancy, but does it really matter if your fluffy friend received the best care he could? Thank you for everything you do! You are the best vets I could wish for my cats!


Jonathan Feinberg

The care and attention, that my pet received far exceeded my expectation. The entire visit was pleasant from the beginning to the end.


Aaron Sawyer

Dr Barbosa and his whole staff are wonderful. They make a difficult situation easier with their compassion


Carlos Valle

Doc. Joe and Team is amazing and have the best for the pets ... Michael & I apologize and thanks for everything.


Richard Ribeiro

I know dr Barbosa for more then 15 years been taken generation and generation of my 4 legged family members. I can’t thank him enough. You will not regret. His is simply the best.


Adrie Paola

Okay seriously, this has to be the best vet around. They saved my dog and in the matter of seconds ! You really need to take your 4 legged baby here !
I recently took my dog to a vet down the street to see what we can do about her skin and allergies. Well result of taking her there she started bleeding internally. Due to a reaction that almost all dogs get from it. Typically when you start a dog on this medication you usually give them something to control their stomach. Well the vet I took her too didn't. She had the runs, and was bleeding out of her rear. Not a little blood. We're talking streams! When I asked this vet to see her 2 days after just paying to see her, he wanted to charge me to see her for something we could have prevented! Well anyways this review is about Animal Hospital Of Hallandale, not this other vet so let's get back to it!

I called so late and so close to closing asking to see if they could possibly see her. They were packed! Busy busy busy! But oh man that didn't stop Dr.Barbosa from wanting to help my pup! They said to bring her in and that they'll squeeze her right in!
We get there, greeted very kindly by the ladies at the desk, get asked to fill out the typical patient form. Filled it out and I was asked if I needed anything from them urgently which was super thoughtful!

After waiting a few mins for my turn I was walked into the room and within 30 seconds Dr.Barbosa walks in. Greets me, and my pup. He asked me to explain what had happen and what's going on. After explaining I showed him what she was prescribed from this other vet. He looked at it and couldn't understand why this other vet sent her these meds. He told me Crystal clear instructions on what to do with her for the remaining of the day and what to expect and what to do the remaining of the week and following.
I couldn't believe how quick he knew what to do and what to give her! That's knowledge and Experience for you! Dr.Barbosa and his wife are seriously amazing and so kind. Please, If you're having any doubts on if you should or shouldn't bring your baby here, trust me they're in good hands! Don't question it! Just do it!
I love them! Thank you Animal Hospital of Hallandale


Matias Mansolino

I’m Camila. Excellent service

Very nice and professional stuff. I brought my cat for dental cleaning. Thank to Dr. Joe Barbosa and Anastasia. Highly recomend this animal hospital. Reasonable price.


Amy Cook

Since recently moving here, I’ve had to rush 2 of my dogs here with what I thought were emergencies. The doctors and staff were amazing! They calmed my fears, clearly explained, and took amazing, loving care with my babies. I have 4 dogs and I will not take them anywhere else!


Paulo Valvezan

I’ve been coming to Dr. Joe Barbosa for several years. He is a caring veterinarian and it’s very clear that this is his vocation and not just a job. It’s rare to find someone like him. I recommend his practice highly and will always have him care for my 2 cats.

Dr. Barbosa and his staff are fantastic. The doctor really knows what he's doing, and does it in a kind and caring way. The staff are always there to help out when needed. Dr. Barbosa always goes out of his way to calm our dog and he corrects little issues he finds while checking her out. Highly recommended!


Jonathan Anthony Hamilton

Barbosa and his staff are remarkable. For me it was making the hardest part of losing a beloved pup easier by being loving kind and making us feel like family. Best Vet in town. Captain Capybara!


Andres Felipe

Great attention to detail. Reasonably priced. Great, sympathetic staff, ready to help.


Pri Thomas

I took my cat Tiger for an emergency and Dr. Barbosa took great care of him and treated him for the ear infection. They have a very caring staff and professional people. I highly recommend this vet!


1701ellie

We have been taking our cat Albert to Dr. Barbosa for over a year and more recently our kitten, Baby. I cannot overstate how wonderful the Dr. and his staff are. Dr. Barbosa is extremely knowledgeable. We have never felt rushed, he answers all our questions and always so gentle with our cats. Both he and his staff are very caring and have always see us even when it's last minute. I recommend Dr. Barbosa's veterinary hospital without any hesitation. They are the best!!!


Kelle

Started coming here a little over a year ago with my cat, and now more recently with my dog. Dr Barbosa is not only a very smart and skilled vet, but he's always friendly, engaging, and empathetic to the needs of my fur babies. He takes his time during the exam and always answers my 10 million questions. He's very patient and very kind and you can tell he loves what he does AND he loves the pets in his care. I've dealt with several vets over the years throughout South Florida and I can tell you that this clinic, and its entire team, is the BEST! 🐱🐶


Anastasia Dispatch

Doctor Barbosa is the best doctor in the area. Very caring and professional.


Cherie Cortte

Monday evening I drop Pima off my pet cat to be spayed. I was un ease at first because it was the first night she was not with us. But any how I called the next day and asked how she was doing they said she good. I love the fact that the young ladies that work up front were very pleasant and sincere. Natasha (cat whisper) she is such a sweet heart and Dr. B is very knowledgeable and cool 😎


Jason Vinokur

Very good veterinarian who cares about animals. He took the time to explain my cat's X-rays to me and all of the staff were courteous and professional. Their prices are also very reasonable. I would have paid at least twice as much anywhere else. I will be taking my cats here from here on.


Iara Taylor

I had a great experience with Dr Barbosa and his staff.
I have 14 yr old Maltese.
When 2 friends of mine recomended Dr Barbosa , I was not so sure. But after talking with him I felt peace to let him cleaned Sleepy ‘S teeth.
He great a awesome job.
Thank you so very much.
I do not need to say Dr Barbosa will be Sleepy’s Vet.
❤️
Thank you.


Kristin Libby

I had to come in quickly today as my cat was having an emergency. I actually was in the neighborhood since I was trying to see my (now former) vet (long story) I was so happy that you were able to help my old cat Tito. I knew he wasn't doing well and didn't want him to suffer. Thanks so much for the caring.


Angela Hyde

I want to thank Dr. Barbosa and his staff for being kind, caring and sensitive to the pet owners needs. What a wonderful team!!!!!


Vanessa Luna

Great service!! I have 2 Pomeranians that I only take there!! Always friendly, attentive and caring !!


Nabia Flores

Took my Penelope for her first visit. Service was great. Staff and MD are kind and professional.


Via TractorParts

Five stars and more to Dr Barbosa for caring about pets 24/7. Twice we called him on a sunday and twice he responded and came to the clinic for an emergency. Visit him one time and you will see the difference. Not many people like him are left in this world.


Sabina Snegov

No words can describe how great this place is!!! Thank you guys for the greatest customer service experience I ever had))


Chris Wegener

Very professional and clean place. The staff is very caring and kind. Doctor Joe Barbosa diagnosed my cat very fast and accurate, compared to other vet clinics. It took them 5 visits to find the problem. When i travel, my pets love to stay for boarding at the Animal Hospital.

Highly recommend this hospital for their vet services.!!!


Nicole Babani

Best hospital the staff and Dr, Barboza are the greatest. They really care about the pets they attend I have been taking my dog for years i will not trust any one else then Hallandale Animal Hospital with my pe

Mrs. Ebo F

Danielle Courboillet

Dr Barbosa is great! After going to different vets he is the only one that made a correct diagnosis of my dogs issues. The personnel is very friendly and they treat my dog with kindness. Sometimes I think I would like the staff at my doctor's office to treat me that way too!


gary ring

Dr barbosa and staff are the best. CARING and very helpful. THANK YOU ALL.


Analou Manent

I know Dr Joe Barbosa for over 22 yrs and would never take my Dog anywhere else. The Best Doggie Doctor in South Florida, always caring, clean and professional. He follow up after the visits and recommend the best treatments. Thank you Dr Joe......!


Daniela Elsner

Fourteen years ago I adopted Billy who has been rescued by animal Hospital of Hallendale treated and sheltered for eight month .We became part of the hospital family. The reception staff was always very helpful accommodating, and caring. We had an instance of poisoning and received immediate attention by the staff. I fell absolutely taken care of with my pet and would definitely highly recommend the hospital to everyone. Experience counts and longtime customer service of employees like Luvy, Tim, Shannon is very important to me. They know me and my pet by name when we enter the hospital. Five stars! Daniela & Billy


studio yogamakesme

I've been taking my two chihuahuas to this clinic for many years. I was always satisfied medically but thought that this is way too pricey and thus never recommended them publicly... Well, this year I decided to save some time and take my dogs to the vet closer to my house in Aventura. I thought i did my (google) research and ended up at bayshore clinic. There the same dental work was estimated at three times as much and the young and pretty doctor (probably an intern) has warned me about such likely possibilities as breaking a jaw (well, its so tiny and delicate and my dogs are so old after all...) and other interesting outcomes... When I warned dr Barbosa of being careful with a jaw he just laughed and asked how old was that dr I saw before... Thank god I came back to this clinic! My dogs are feeling wonderful and i paid $1300 instead of $3300 (likely to increase they noted...hehe). After this many years Im finally highly recommend this clinic!


Jorge Bortolotti

Got my dog 7 lb tumor discovered and removed by Dr Barbosa. My dog came home at same day, and doing very well.
Thank you all people from Hallandale animal hospital


C. Neves

My family has been taking our dogs to Dr. Barbosa for over a year now. He is amazing and extremely knowledgeable. The people here make you feel at home and there is a sense of personal attention. My dog was not another cog in the factory if that makes sense. Dr. Barbosa is from Brazil and he was able to communicate in Portuguese, Spanish and English which helped my mother and father a lot!!! I really recommend this animal hospital!!!


Julianna Becker

Caring staff, Wonderful Doctor.
Convenient location close to I-95 in Broward County.


TheReal Nikki

The best!!! They are so nice and welcoming, my rabbit is happy with his treatment.


Birgit Schulz

Kudos to Doctor Joe Barbosa. One of the best vets in regards to his 35 years of experience , his fast diagnostics and for us the best surgeon for our cats Santo and Myka. Because of his caring way - we call him " The Doctor of the Heart ". Many Thanks to you and your friendly staff.


Sonia Klainbaum

The best of the best, very caring. The vet loves animals no doubt about it.


george david rosado

They took great care of my Westie (Snoops lived til almost 19 years old). Also saved very sick puppy that I purchased from Petland that still has problems and is still under Dr. Barbosa's and staffs care .


Olga Babani

Dr Barboza have been my veterinary for years, not only is he a great doctor and a caring one, along with entire staff. Their ethics and work profession are beyond. I have had several emergency with my dogs, they have gone above and beyond to give my dogs the best possible care. Not to mention staying after hours to make sure my chole is out of danger after life threatening surgery at no extra cost, staff arriving early to see how she made it thru the night You don't see this kind of treatment these days. I will for ever be so grateful to Hallandale Animal Hospital. I truly love the entire staff and the Doctor, so does my Chole, Bailey, & Zeus they look forward to their visit, so they can get spoiled with treats from them.
Thank you Hallandale Animal Hospital, I have 3 healthy loving dogs due to your great service. Thank you for having so much patience with me and for answering all of my questions. Once again for ever grateful.

Carolyn Jacobson

I have been taking a succession of pets to the Animal Hospital of Hallandale for twelve years. Dr. Barbosa has treated our red poodle, Spaniards, for several years and was with us when we had to say the final goodbye at age 17. We took Gigi, our next poodle, to Dr. Barbosa for ten years. She received excellent care and attention age 16. She did pass with kidney failure; Dr. Barbosa and the staff at the animal hospital were very kind and helpful when I learned that it was again time to say goodbye. When Miss Patches joined us, the first place she visited was Dr. Barbosa. Thankfully she is still with us and is recovering beautifully from surgery; she was spaded latter in life. When I asked if dogs go through menopause and would she be there soon; Dr. Barbosa explained all the problems that often occur later in life. Miss Patches had the surgery the next day; she is recovering beautifully and, again, the staff was great. They never got upset with me no matter how many times I called with questions.
Dr. Barbosa also had a rescue kitten that captured my heart in one evening. I would not let the staff list me as the owner on our trial visit. They must have had a good laugh when I walked out the door. It is with joy that I share that a very handsome Billy Boots is healthy, happy, and the delight of my heart.


ellie joo

Very special thanks to Dr. Barbosa and his great staff
I have two beautiful dogs that I call them furry children. Over years, I had brought them to Hallandale animal hospital for two different surgeries -patellar luxation and hernia-. Result? They recovered as if there was nothing. A few days ago, my husband woke up with one of them made a mistake, we all thought it was an accident. By the time I go to work, he had diarrhea. I called the other vet that I took them since I moved, they advised me to starve him for a day. I had a feeling that it wasn’t usual. I called Hallandale animal hospital, they asked me to bring him in, which I did. By the time that I brought him to the hospital, he was bleeding uncontrollably. Poor my little baby was getting cold. He had bacterial infection in his intestine. The whole staff was very attentive, Dr. Barbosa and his medical staffs started preparation before any payment discussion. My baby was hospitalized under a strong painkiller and IV for two days. Finally on day 3, he STOOD UP! If you are looking for a vet who you can trust, meet Hallandale Animal hospital. Over so many visits to see him, hospital staffs were always nice and caring. I am very glad that I did not trust over the phone consultation or online information. I could have lost my family. Again, thank you for saving my furry child.

Maria Gonzalez

I have more than two years taking my 2 dogs for control, check and vaccinations. The attention is excellent, they are super friendly and always look for the best way to communicate with the client so they do not handle the English language. They always remind me when I have to renew vaccines from my dogs and that's good since I never remember the date. The doctors are very good and super friendly when it comes to treating my babies. I really like it a lot, I'm super close to my house and the prices are quite affordable.


Daiane X

Toda a equipe é maravilhosa, sempre prontos para esclarecer todas as dúvidas. Minhas 2 gatinhas foram tratadas com muito cuidado e carinho. Só tenho a agradecer.

PT. Medico experiente e responsavel! Tratamento impecavel com os meus pets e comigo! Nao iria em outro lugar!


Jodi 

Dr. Barbosa is wonderful! He has been caring for our dog, Sparky, since 2010. Just recently, he removed several cysts from our dog using a laser all in one visit. Dr. Barbosa is up on the latest medical technology and is also compassionate and trustworthy.


Mylene Padilla 

Great doctor!! Very nice staff. I am very pleased with the way he treated my kitty. Dr. Barbosa was very friendly and you can tell he truly loves animals. He has a great sense of humor and is a very kind soul. I highly recommend ❤️😊

"I have been to several different veterinarians in the area over the course of my dog’s young life, and Dr. Joe Barbosa of Animal Hospital of Hallandale is by far the best doctor in town! I had been to fancy vets with elaborate waiting rooms and impressive pedigrees, but none can compare to the level of knowledge, service, and care my dog received from Dr. Barbosa. My pup recently had to go through knee surgery, and after investigating the procedure with a few other offices, I found that Dr. Barbosa is the only one in the area with state-of-the-art laser equipment in his operation room. So it seems that whatever the office lacks in it’s front-entrance appearance, is because he chooses to invest in the best equipment instead. My dog is now healing beautifully, and no doubt, much more quickly because of the laser procedure. In addition, Dr. Barbosa and his staff are friendly, compassionate, and always make me feel welcome. If you need a vet you can trust, give them a call!"

Great place. They treat your pet with so much love!!! Dr Barbosa is a sweet person. Im so glad I was recommended by a friend about this place. Thank you for taking care of Safari


Thank you for taking me in today as my 13 year old cat Tito had a medical emergency. The vet I met was very honest and caring with me and my cat. It was a hard situation especially since I literally looked over and saw this vet as I was turned away by our typical vet (long story) but I appreciated the attention in my little emergency moment it was appreciated more than you know.

- Kristin Libby 6/29/2017


We LOVE OUR Dr. Barbosa. Doc and office staff makes us feel so comfortable - both our dogs somehow love going to the vet. So much experience, knowledge, and kindness -- we're sooo lucky to have you as our vet.

- Christie Downs 10/20/2017


A friendly and very very scientific place to bring our pets. We are full of confidence

- Jorge Pereira 9/23/2017


I thought I was getting special treatment but reading these other reviews it became clear. With over 2 decades of experience, you have to agree that your pet is in very good hands.

- Felipe Gil Rodriguez 7/14/2017


"I want to thank dr Barbosa for answering my call Sunday morning and wanting to help ease pain of qtip my dog who lived 13 yrs and had chf for over 3 yrs but he needed to rest and dr Barbosa s calm compassionate approach is admirable ! I m not from here just arrived here I looked online for vet and came across your name . I read the reviews and accurate they are ! Being my first pet to make hard decision to end his life was made easier peaceful greatly by Dr Barbosa . GREAT VETERINARIAN!"

Everyone at Hallandale Animal Hospital is so kind and caring and Dr. Barbosa is an amazing vet. He and his competent team are a real pleasure to deal with. 

-Elaine Lambrechts provided personally by client March 4,  2014


As an animal rescuer and volunteer for The Cat Network I would like to thank Dr. Barbosa from the bottom of my heart for helping me too many times to remember. His surgical and front office staff are amazing. They are so kind, efficient and always try to accommodate me in emergency situations. He is a saint!!!!!!

Dr. Barbosa has been my vet for about 15 years and I have always been extremely satisfied with the attention I have received at Hallandale Animal Hospital. Jill, Shannon and Carole are very efficient and so are all his techs. I am a rescuer and they treat the stray cats just the same as my pets, they really love animals and I love him, he is Brazilian and so am I!!!!

I would love to recommend Dr. Barbosa at Hallandale Animal Hospital. I have received very good service when I have taken my pets there. He and all his staff are first rate.

I have been going to this Animal Hospital for over 35 years. When Dr. Ward retired, we were worried who was going to take care of our pets needs? Along came Dr. Jose Barbosa. He has been the most caring person I have ever met. He takes all the time you need to discuss procedures. He has a gentle, caring manner with your pets and you. His staff is sensitive to you and your pets needs. Once you've been there you feel like part of the family. Prices and fees are comparable the other Vets. I'm overprotecitve with my pets and he understands completely. When our little Maggie passed to the Rainbow Bridege, they all cried with us. He gets attached to his little fur patients as if they were his own. His own dog and cat roam the back office. His staff also bring in their dogs who have become little greeters when we come in for a visit. Our dog, Max, just had a root canal and got a crown - saving the tooth was crucial since it is one of the back molar ones. Max now has bling! We love Dr. B and his staff.

 Sue E. Sue H.  Hollywood, Fl  2/10/2010  I live in Hollywood and tried 3 vet offices there before Dr Barbosa at the Animal Hospital of Hallandale was recommended to me.  I have always had several cats and a dog and have been going there now for about 15 years.  The office staff including the front desk, vet techs, Resident Vets and other vets are all caring, warm, friendly and helpful. Some of my pets were cared for to the end of their lives and after they died (one was a 17 year old cat), we received a sympathy card with notes and expressions of support from all the staff.  It was very touching. You will not be disappointed if you bring your furry loved ones here for care!

I am a big fan!!! Great photo! You all are the best, I will always remember when you put me at ease when Chaka Khan was in Labor, I was so  worried, and afraid and you calmed me down and checked Chaka Khan, and took x-rays, and made me feel so much better, even Chaka Khan felt better, Thank You So Much, Your Biggest Fan!!!

I was amazed at the high quality of care and the amount of knowledge the staff had from the receptionist to the assistants. I will always bring my cats to the Animal Hospital of Hallandale. I could not think of a better place to care for them. K u d o s to Dr. Barbosa, he is the best. Thank you so much for everything.

I feel very fortunate to have been introduced to Dr. Barbosa and his staff: Dr. Pait, Riolando the Tech, Jill, Denise, Carissa, Shannon, Luvy and many others. From the very first visit with my 10 week old Rottweiler puppies, I knew that I would be forming a lasting friendship. Everyone in this facilty treats my animals as it were their own. Honestly! Scarlet and Bella literally "jump" out of the truck and run to the door when we arrive at the Animal Hospital of Hallandale. My dogs are never agitated or upset when I pick them up, even after a day of surgery or shots. The front desk staff, Jill and Shannon, are absolutely amazing! They fill out my insurance paper work without my asking, they do whatever they can to save me money, without me ever having to ask. I'm now unfortunately having problems with hip displasia in one of my females. Dr. Barbosa spotted it very early on which will allow Bella to have surgery and live a more normal canine life. I recommend them with all my heart.

I cannot say enough about the love and compassionate care I received from all the folks at Animal Hospital of Hallandale. During the course of my puppy's (Rocco) medical adventures ( I think he spend a total of close to 10 days on 3 occasions at the Hospital), I had the opportunity to interact with both Dr. Provci and Dr. Barbosa, as well as with Jill and the rest of the friendly and caring staff. Things weren't looking good for poor Rocco when I brought him in, but the staff worked their magic and the story has a happy ending. I cannot imagine a more caring, patient, dedicated, and compassionate group of perople and I will never have anyone work on Rocco if I can help it. I had the best experience I can imagine, and feel like Rocco has an extended family ( and fan club!) at the AHH. I would hightly recommend them and I look forward to my next visit, as long as Rocco's doing fine! :-)

We want to say thank you very much for your help and patience with our 'little tiger' Vasa . Our friends found him on a street when he was only about 2 weeks .. Sometimes he can be aggressive and wild with other people. But we love him. Thank you one more time for your cooperation. Very good service for this money.
