Becker Animal Hospital / wrongful diagnoses and terrible service
Ive been a customer for years and his prices are reasonable but its not worth you pets life.
I took my pet here b/c it stopped eating. Becker said it had an upset stomach."dont worry about it." He said "its nothing serious."
I go home and several days it starts drooling and doesnt eat or drink. I go back TO BECKER and he says 'oh its nothing serious, its allergies."
"Other animals, cleaning products, ragweed." I believe him and gives me overpriced meds.
They dont work. I go back and he examines my cat and says 'well, HONESTLLY, I dont know whats wrong with it." He was very annoied and just shoved my cat in the cage.
He gives my cat a allergy shot and I go home. I feed it nothing but liquids and water but he doesnt eat solid food.
Ever 2 weeks he got a allergy shot and he would drool a little. This goes on for almost a year and my cat would eat less and less and then again refused water or food.
Finally my cat looks HORRIBLE!! I had just gotten back from beckers office 3 days ago and he got a allergy shot, and NOW I go back. Becker isnt there and I request if they have other allergy medicines for my cat.
"no." said the rude scientologist male receptionist. I ask for another doctor, Mircea Volosen, to look at my cat. He does and says 'his teeth are horrible, they need to come out."
"What? Whats wrong?"
He had that tooth thing where the body attacks his mouth, and this didnt just happen overnight. I told him that becker said it was an allergy b/c of airborn pathogens. "No dont listen to him, he's dumb." WTFH!!
So Dr.v said he needed all his teeth out NOW. I reluctantly do so and I was pissed at becker.
My cat was fine afterwards, he could eat, drink but still needed a steroid shot not a ALLERGY ONE!! Airborne pathogens my @$$!!
I specifically requested that becker NOT do the surgery.
On the day when I was to pick mu cat up, becker came in and I confronted becker about how he overlooked this. Well for one thing he did the surgery when I didnt want him NEAR my cat anymore.
PLUS! Get this, he accused me of being a bad pet owner, and I 'dont deserve that cat."
"you dont deserve to be a vetinarian." I said. "I trusted you with him and you litterally said that you couldnt figured out what was wrong with him."
'Obviously you are not a vetinarian so what do you know."
"I know youre a quack!" He got pissed and cursed me out, All this he was towering over me, jabbing his fat finger in my chest, shouting at me.
"So how can you not see it was his teeth and not a stupid allergy?"
'Im the dr, youre not and these things DO happen!"
"uh...er...yes..it can happen over night." I kept catching him is lies and he was just pissed that he was caught making a mistake. he got fed up of me question his stupidity that he escorted me out.
"I DONT WANT TO SEE YOU HERE AGAIN!!!"
Later that week he sent me threathing letters, which I did post on the web where he blames me for my cats illnesses and I had minimum manners to even question his knowledege. I moved my pets out of his concentrationcamp vet but I couldnt get my shot records b/c he withheld them.
So b/c of him, me and my cat had suffered allot. He is not a good dr and others have complained about him. I went online and he was sued several times of animal cruelty and malpractice.
Im doing my best to WARN others about this guy. I do go to another animal hospital and most techs came from his vet and know he's a wackjob.
He has reasonable prices but it includes his madness. Its not worth you 'trusting' a madman by putting you loving pet in his hands so he can make if suffer.
Im warning ALL about this guy. Ive complained about him on other sites and submitted a complaint but nothing.
