Winters Chapel Animal Hospital / Bad service
This animal hospital tells nothing but lies and they are also true Scam Artists. They do not care about their clients nor do they care about the well-being and the health of their clients health. They also like to scam people for money as well. This animal hospital can't be trusted nor should they be in business. They also have extremely terrible and awful business practices. I urge you to not go to this animal hospital and have the veterinarians there care for the health and physical well-being of your animals. The veterinarians there just completely stupid and not trust-worthy. The review from Atlanta City Search (below) proves it.
This is the Review that was left on the Atlanta City Search site by another extremely dissatisfied clinent of their's:

Overall premise of situation: Cat was throwing up night before for several hours. He was just put on Thyroid medicene by the Dr about a week prior which wasn't reacting well to him. So I took him in for a look at to see if the medicene was right strength. Not to run 15 other additional tests when he was a healthy cat before the thyroid medicene was prescribed. Situation and results: Winters Chapel and Dr. Nachamkin ran unauthorized tests (after getting off the phone with us and telling us no extra work would be taken because it would be a waste and nothing was likely to show) that ranked up a $300 bill. When I called to speak to the Dr about his choice of testing and authorization he proceeded to raise his voice and say I was questioning his skills as a Dr. I explained I wasn't but didn't give him a blank check for my cat services (especially when he A) had extra work 6 weeks prior all turn out to say he was a perfect cat and B) he said he appeared to be just fine in the office that morning and had not thrown up etc so he would give him IV and anti-nausea medicene and monitor him). So of course, I was shocked to see a $300 bill for bl*od work etc. He argued his rights to do what he wanted and then said he would take the charges off with a refunded check. I said thank you as I think that the panel ordered was out of line for the symptoms and past extra work of 6 weeks ago, He then yelled you will get your records back too and Hung up on me. That was uncalled for and unmature. Especially for a man of his age and practice discipline. Overall rating: I rate him with one- star. There is another Dr there that I have seen, a woman and she was pleasant. So I limit my review to him. But, there are many places out here and you seem to see whomever they give you so if the odds are you might see him, I would go somewhere else.
This is my friend's ROR ([redacted]) on Winters Chapel Animal Hospital:
I used to be a client of Winters Chapel Animal hospital and my dog(s) used to be a patient of theirs. They were both Dachshunds, I no longer have them and have rehomed them for (certain reasons). Dr. AJ Silverman, D.V.M has given out personal information about one of my dogs that I did not give him consent to do so. He told person's veterinarian that purchased one of my Dachshunds from me about what had happened to her. This was back in June/July of 2006 and he never apologized for it. This veterinarian is NOT a good veterinarian at all. I immediately had him copy all of my dogs records and moved my dogs to another veterianrian that would never do something like this to his'/her's/their clients ever. I would never ever recommend Dr. AJ Silverman, D.V.M as a good veterinarian to anyone at all. If you have a new puppy or kitten or an adult dog or an adult cat, please stop seeing him immediately. If you have a new puppy, new kitten, new adult dog, new adult cat and are thinking about having Dr. AJ Silverman, D.V.M as your veterinarian...please do not have him as your veterinarian. He will do the samething to you. This is a warning to all the people in Atlanta, Georgia who have dogs, cats, puppies, and/or kittens (new and not new). I want to see Winters Chapel Animal Hospital be shut down for good. I don't think that it is ethical for them to practicing veterinary medicine and giving out personal information about the health care and treatment of their clients' pets and the people that own them. This veterinarian is completely ignorant and stupid too. I will pray and hope that he gets his license to practice veterinary medicine revoked permenantly. I know that he has already done it to several other people. Please DO NOT make the same mistake that I did by having him care for the health and physical well-being of you pet(s). I am in the process of filing a report against him with GVMA, the state of Georgia, AVMA, and AAHA, along with any other veterinary medical association that he might and/or might not be a member of.
