REVIEWS OF Westside Veterinary Center IN Michigan

Bonnie Simon

My golden retriever sliced her leg on something very sharp out in the woods. They saw her the moment she was brought in. She was anesthesized and extensive sewing had to be done. The bandaging was beautifully done so that she did not need to wear a cone. They saw her for two follow-up visits, even on a Sunday. They are the best!

Christine Campbell

I bring my dog & cat here, past 5 years and they are wonderful. Caring, smart & attentive staff that truly care about your pet & you. 5 Stars. Great neighborhood vet.

James Delmonte

The doctors and staff are the best! I have been taking my pet here for nearly twenty years. The staff are caring and responsive and make the patient and owner feel comfortable.

Lynn Capehart

"When I moved back to New York City in early 2017 the first thing I did was look for a vet for Mr. Squeak, my ginger kitty. I selected Westside Veterinary Center, because it is a full service care center not far from home. I knew as soon as I walked in that I had made a good choice. Reception is staffed by very caring personnel. The appointment times are honored judiciously, meaning there is rarely a wait of more than 10 -15 minutes. Good luck telling twins Gina and Tina apart! But they're both calm and very sweet. Mr. Squeak's vet is Dr. Cantor, knowledgeable and compassionate, a highly trained and consummate professional. There is an onsite pharmacy and lab. Examining rooms are clean and bright. You can get full medical care, even surgery, plus dental as well. And there is a nice feeling of warmth and acceptance when you arrive. Any non-medical problems and Murray ‘The Fixer,’ who is also the office manager, will take care of it in no time. I highly recommend this center. You're in good hands at Westside Veterinary." I mean every word of it folks! You all do a great job. Thanks for all you've done for Squeak. Lynn.

Kayla Hu

I barely write reviews especially negative ones. But I'll give 0 star if I could this time. The nurse is super unprofessional and hang up on me while I was talking. My cat is suffering an health issue this morning and need a vet asap. They have walk-ins but she rudely interrupted me and told me: "Even you come I won't have a doctor for you. You can do whatever you want." The whole conversation lasted for 2 mins and she said she has another call come in and directly hang up. Didn't go there and don't know about the doctor, but you will NEVER want to deal with nurses like this who doesn't want to spend 2 mins and shows no care of your beloved ones.

Erica Ress Martin

I have trusted Dr. Brodsky and his team with my dogs since he first opened his practice. They’ve taken care of 7 of my pets and I have always felt the time and attention devoted to each patient is amazing. The staff is a friendly group of problem solvers who never let you down. The best Vet practice in Manhattan.

Derya Style

Westside Veterinary is the BEST vets in the city hands down. So grateful I found this place! They really care about your pet. I brought my Pomeranian 'Prince' in for an broken paw’ and doctor Kathleen Colby and Dr Rutherford are amazing they took good care of him and they are both incredibly thorough and Knowledgeable. It is always a pleasurable experience to visit this immaculate office. The entire staff is caring and truly provide a excellent service! Highly recommend this place!

Richard Vida

I have been with Dr. Napolitano at Westside Veterinary Center for 20 years and the care and expertise shown to my pets has always been superlative. My cats of 18 years were treated wonderfully and in the end stages of their lives made comfortable and when it came down to saying goodbye, we were treated with dignity and could have all the time in the world as we said goodbye. Our dog was viciously attacked and required very serious surgeries and Dr. Kosovsky proved to be exceptional and explained everything fully prior to any procedure. Our dog today is just fine and loves life. Also, a true sign to me, our dog runs into the office, even after all of her surgeries and trauma without any hesitation. The staff is always pleasant and I can't express enough how grateful I am for Westide Vetrinary Center. My experiece has always been positive.

J Soll

Kim Rosenthal is an amazing vet who has cared for my mother's cats over 20+ years and just saved my cat's life after a severe urinary obstruction. Everyone on the staff is extremely kind and helpful. It is easy to see that it is a place where animals are truly loved. Do your pet a favor and take them here!

Risa G

Excellent vets; I live uptown near two other large veterinarian practices, but I walk my dog over a mile (or take taxi in less-than-ideal weather) to this veterinary practice. Dr. Brodsky is amazing, but I have seen other, more junior vets, who are excellent as well.

Laverne L

West side Veterinary center is fantastic! I have been taking my dogs there for years, even though it's a little out of my way. It's definitely worth it!

Carol Weston

Lauren Colby and the other staff members could not have been more caring and compassionate. Sure, we wanted Mike the Cat to live forever, but there we were, a weepy mess, my husband and I, because Mike was at the end of his long life. We'd been giving him jabs of insulin for years, but now, he was in trouble... Honestly, they were the best. Reassuring, comforting, expert and kind.

Isa G.

I moved to NYC recently with my rescue puppy, and was so happy to find the Westside Vet Center. The vets give my dog A+ care and the nurses have guided and reassured me on the phone when issues arise. Would definitely recommend!

Amanda Furr

Dr Rutherford is the best! the hours are so flexible and they can see your pet quickly if they are sick.

Dan Scolnick

I have been a client of WSVC for 4 generations of cats. Full service, caring, concerned people work there. they give excellent, truthful advice and spend as much time as needed. from the director to the orderly's to the front desk, everyone is respectful, well trained and there when you need them.

Geoff Burke

Dr. Lewis has been wonderful over the years giving attention and care to my rescue pup. Highly recommended

Alan Fitts

Really great in every way. Full service and able to do everything from check-ups to x-rays to surgery. I feel very confident and secure knowing I have Westside Veterinary Center nearby!

Susan Hannigan

We had to put down my mom's elderly dog who was incredibly ill. The staff was remarkable . Couldn't have been more loving and understanding.

Deanna Bennett

Every interaction we have had with this great team of vets and staff has just been amazing, and completely reduces the stress of bringing in a yowling cat for a check up or illness. I can't recommend it enough; every single person here has always been extremely kind, helpful, informative, understanding, and, most of all, really caring about every animal that passes through the doors. We come from a few neighborhoods away to have our pets treated here because they're simply the best.

For the love of Animals

Our first appointment was at a busy time so they were running a bit late. Our vet was extremely caring and attentive and gave us confidence about our recently adopted senior dog. Since there is a large staff, a little surprised at the wait. Also the woman that checked us out did not provide us with a detailed invoice and was a bit curt. Had to ask to have one, thus the 4 instead of 5 star rating

christian urciuoli

office staff warm & professional, got an appointment very quickly, doctors all friendly and attentive.

Linda Rothenberger

I have used Westside Vets for many years with my last two dogs. I have been very pleased with attention each of my dogs have received and the attention that I receive when reporting on something that may bother me about them during the visit or a phone call. I trust my vet implicitly as nothing is as important to me as the health and well being of my dogs.

Byum Hee Kil

This is the best veterinary clinic I've been to. My vet Dr. Rutherford is amazing, kind, patient and informative. She responds to my emails promtly and gives the excellent advice. I highly recommend her and this clinic!

Lisa E Davis

Westside Veterinary Center has a heart. They genuinely care for the animals who come to them for help. We are so grateful for our Doctor Karen Cantor, who combines expertise and warmth every time our cockatoo visits. Thank you, Dr. Cantor and all the Westside staff!

Nina Nueve

Highly recommend them. Dr Bodkin is great with my dogs, as well as nurses and front desk staff, they are very welcoming and nice with all pets they see. They don't over medicate them like their previous vet, and only do the necessary tests and keep track well of all vaccines and treatments they need. Overall best Veterinary I know.

Serina Concepcion

Love these caring workers and doctors. These ppl really care and genuinely care for your pet as if they were children. Love that. And I love the follow ups they do for any previous visits you and your pet has made. These guys here deserves the 5 star and better reviews. Thank you guys for taking care of my lil guy buddy.

ellen sherman

This group goes above and beyond with all the pets. They "saved" my dog from going thru surgery with care and great diagnostics. I feel safe with them and so does my dog!

Ellen Fair

I found Westside more than 20 years ago when my cat got sick and my regular vet was closed for the weekend. I've been going ever since. The clinic staff is supportive and friendly, and the service is accessible 24/7, which has been a godsend on more than one occasion.

Angie Herrera

Wonderful and friendly staff. My little chewy was in extreme pain, I walked right in and under 15 mins Chewy was seen by a friendly and professional vet. The walk-in fee is pretty high compared to other sites in the city, but over all Chewy wellness was well taken care of.

Ipaintpain INK

These workers and doctors are very kind. And genuinely care for your pets like they were children. I love how they follow up with any previous visits. This place deserves the 5 star and better. Reviews. Thank you west side veterinary. Thank you for taking care of my lil guy here. Buddy (smile)

Zack Eaton

The doctors deserve 5 stars. The rest of the facility is a crisp 3 a best. The front desk is always chaotic.

Carl James Grindley

Selecting a vet is very difficult in this city, but Westside is an excellent choice. Pleasant and responsive staff who genuinely care about your pets, and vets who seem thoroughly engaged and committed to their vocation. A quality vet is expensive, so be aware that serious and competent care comes at a premium. My experience with my new little pal--a random stray who adopted me was first rate. He had an emergency visit to see if he was chipped and in good health, and then a longer visit to be chipped, vaccinated and neutered. The level of care Eliot received was second-to-none and the office's followups were reassuring. Westside will be Eliot's forever vets.

Yahaira Santana

I paid $359 dollars for them to find out what was wrong with my dog. I was to by the vet that they still needed to do more test to find out what was wrong. My dog was very weak and all it seemed like they were more interested was in me leaving him overnight and paying more to run more test. I took my dog home around 5:00 am my dog didn’t seem to get better with the shot they gave him so I went to 510 East 62nd street Animal Medical Center. I arrived and in less than 20 minutes and only $180 dollars they were able to tell me what was wrong with my dog and did a scan etc. Don’t waste your time at Westside Center go to AMC they are the best when it comes to the care of your loving animals.

Bryan Rogers

Our first-time visit and the veterinarian, Dr. Lauren, was really great about explaining the issues and possible causes - not to mention pointing out the common paper staples seen in our lab’s indiscriminating stomach. Nice follow-up 48 hrs later to check on progress, as indicated.

Farrah Berse

Westside vet is amazing! Dr. Lauren was fantastic, and we are really going to miss her when she moves. But we have also had great experiences with Drs. Friedman, Colby, Rutherford, Lewis and Yim. We recommend them all!

JC Taveras

I haven't had much experience with other vet centers but I can personally say this is the most welcoming, professional and courteous places I've ever been to. Especially coming from a new dog parent!

Michelle Altman

I've used Westside for over thirty years and three dogs and an iguana. The service and treatment are great and the personal follow-up makes me feel my pet really matters to vets, all of whom are warm and professional.

Valerie Williams

Dr. Lewis is amazing. Super smart, and super friendly. She diagnosed my dog's problem in just a few seconds, and got her all patched up in minutes!

Diana Ventimiglia

I love Westside Veterinary! Dr. Rutherford is incredibly kind, smart, and accommodating. She checks in on my cat, and she's always willing to work with me to figure out what's best economically, too. I've always been able to get an appointment, too, which has been hard in my experience at other offices.

M Krugman

Dr Rosenthal is a godsend! She truly cares for her patients and also their families. Aside from feeling confident in her expertise and skills, we truly appreciate the time she takes to answer questions and provide explanations to worried parents. She always follows up and makes herself available, which demonstrates her genuine compassion and care. A special call out for Gina at the front desk for her kind and compassionate support also! We wouldn't trust our furry boy with anyone else!

Clif Eddens

Great caring staff for when you need it the most.

Maria Woods

Dr. Napolitano is an excellent vet! Our mini cavapoo has been going to Westside Vet Center for several years and we've had nothing but great service. Additionally, everyone I've met at Westside Vet Center has been kind, friendly and helpful. Our dog has received excellent care which is what keeps us coming back!

Frank Fellone III

I had my first experience with Westside Vets yesterday, and it was a great one. The level of genuine interest in my pets well-being, the professionalism at the front and back offices/rooms and cleanliness was top notch. It was a comforting experience and we will definitely be using Westside Vets for the years to come. Highly Recommend!!

Barbara Norcia-Broms

Westside Vet provides excellent services ... worth every penny! Thank you, Dr. Cantor, for many years of loving care. Barbara & Marty

Abraham John P

Great, knowledgeable staff, well organized courteous service and good facilities!

Claire Fagin

superior staff. we feel confident about our care our vet is wonderful. we have been to many but dr KR is the best.

Wilfredo Valencia

Diesel's visit with dr. Colby was great. Dr. Colby was very helpful and helped diagnosed and treat Diesel's issues during our visit very quickly. Given that visits to any vet in NYC aren't cheap, i always appreciate it when vets are at least concerned and show genuine concern for the welfare of the animal.

Super Tired Super Mom

Always helpful, easy to work with. Great place!

Zachary Farren

I adopted my little Pluto about a year ago and was taking him to another vet, but the experience there was less than stellar, not to mention far away. The staff at the other practice was short and rude, the doctor never gave more than 5 minutes to even get to know us, and after my last visit there, I decided I wanted to find a place closer to home and find a new vet..... I looked around online and came across Westside Veterinary Center. From the first phone call everyone was super friendly and professional, and my experience over the past two visits has been great and couldn’t think of going anywhere else. As I travel frequently for work, and Pluto comes along with me at times, finding a USDA certified doctor was important, and we were matched with Dr. Melanie Friedman. Dr. Friedman is thorough and kind, and took an interest in me and my pet. I felt like I wasn’t just another patient among many. The front desk staff is great and is very helpful as well. So glad I found this place and hope to continue being a client for years to come!

Lauren Donohue

I have used Westside Veterinary Center for 20 years and I have always felt listened to and have felt my beloved companions have gotten the best care I could ever hope for. They have been there for me in every supportive way through the happy times and the inevitable sad times. In addition to having first rate doctors, their nursing staff in extraordinary. To put it succinctly, Westside Vet is a first rate veterinary center.

Howard Waxman

Dr. Rosenthal, my vet at the Westside Veterinary Center, is always available. Her insights have always been correct and useful with both of my dogs for over 15 years. Additionally, her warmth and support in times of need is invaluable. I couldn't recommend Westside Veterinary Center more highly.

Max Rosen

My wife and I have 2 bengal cats and Westside Vets has taken fantastic care of them for 3 years. We switched vets because the first vet could not find the solution to a problem that one of them had - but Dr. Lewis correctly diagnosed the problem as a food allergy and instantly cleared it up. THANK YOU, DR. LEWIS!!


What a great facility. Every vet I’ve seen has been friendly and competent. My 3 year old jack russell loves them.

Rebekah Villaronga

HORRIBLE experience. $3000+ and 2 months of visits, my dog is STILL suffering with chronic airway obstruction. I was first told it "sounded" like he had a collapsed trachea by a vet tech who didnt even perform any sort of assessments. I dont even think a vet tech is medically or legally competent to make that kind of statement. I was then seen by a doctor and was told he had kennel cough. Prescribed 3 meds that did absolutey nothing for my dog. Airway obstruction getting worse, pet nor I can sleep through the night because of constant hacking and coughing fits lasting for about 10 minutes every hour. I go back 3 weeks later, to be told my pet has pnuemonia and fluid in his lungs. I got xrays despite being unable to afford the $300 fee for two views and his respiratory system looked HORRIBLE. Narrow airway and fluid in his lungs as well as trapped pockets of gas in his stomach from how severely he was coughing. Hospitalization at this point was recommended. As this dog means everything to me, i agreed. It cost me $2700 and after 3 days in their care maxing out my entire care credit card, HE STILL DID NOT IMPROVE. When the vet called me, she told me his blood work came back nornal and actually did not show any signs on infection (pnuemonia) but now had a COLLAPSED lung. She still prescribed 3 antibitoics DESPITE HIM NOT HAVING A BACTERIAL INFECTION. HOW MEDICALLY IRRESPONSIBLE IS THAT? Does antibiotic resitance not apply to the canine species? I am in debt for the next year as I am a nursing student trying to pay off my $3000 vet bill over the course of next year until the end of 2019. This was the most horrendous, medically imcompetent and irresponsible experience I have ever had. My pet was wrongly diagnosed 3 times and until this day is still suffering with his "unknown medical illness".

Galit Perez

They are extremely sloppy across the board. I have two dogs and have seen a number of different doctors there for each of them. They have been weighed incorrectly, examined with a scary lack of thoroughness, we’ve been given the wrong medications/doses more than once, and doctors have not reviewed my pets’ files(not even reading the first page or two, let alone the whole thing) before seeing them. Each of my dogs has been hospitalized there once, one for pneumonia and the other for problems with her diabetes and subsequent dehydration. Both times the doctor said I could take them home after one night of hospitalization. She was not looking out for our bill because we didn’t express any financial concerns. My dog with pneumonia was in the middle of treatment when she said he could go home, and the diabetic dog was still severely dehydrated. I tolerated some of their missteps because it is a local doctor and it is convenient, but we will not be going back here ever again.

Julia Ferranti

Excellent veterinary office. Always take really good care of my dog. They even take some exotic animals. Highly recommend

Matan Korrub

Could not be happier with this Vet Center. They are kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. I put an exceptional amount of trust in their hands, and they've demonstrated nothing but competence and effectiveness. Very lucky to have found this group.

Ilene Smith

Dr. Rosenthal is a gem. She is very thorough and very knowledgeable and always works to give my dog the best care possible. But, more importantly, she makes him feel so comfortable. She really shows her love for animals.

Michelle Grand

I bring my cat to Dr. Brodsky. He has been practicing vet medicine for many years and is very knowledgeable. He always takes the time to listen to whatever worries or questions I may have and does a very thorough job examining my kitty. I’ve had bad experiences in the past with other vets, but never with Dr. Brodsky. I know he does everything possible to make sure my cat is and stays healthy. The other staff members are also professional and nice.

Ryan C

Clean facility with helpful staff. Very efficient. I enjoyed speaking with the vet who let me know of vaccines and medications that were optional and told me that it would be a good idea to think about what I would like rather than briskly telling me what to do.

Jane Brady

Best vet practice NYC! Drs and staff are compassionate and understanding. Dr. Rosenthal is a great vet and completely in tune with our dog-daughter and us.

Jodi Lustig

From routine shots and checkups to the direst emergencies, there is nothing that everyone at Westside -- really, everyone from the office managers to the doctors, doesn't handle with care and expertise. I adore them, and my dog gives them five woofs!

Tami mattison

I was very apprehensive about bringing my cat, William in. While I was away he scratched his eye and he looked miserable. I was able to get a same day appointment with Dr. Colby. I could not be more impressed or pleased with her professionalism and compassioante care. She obviously loves cats and was kind and gentle to my grumpy Persian. I left feeling better and William did too. Two days later I received a follow up call from her asking about William and his eye. I cannot say enough about the quality of care he received and her support staff. We will be back!

Michael Lewyn

Even though they treat a variety of animals, I was very impressed by their treatment of my gerbil. In a situation where some vets would have called for surgery after a 30-second look (or said no after a 30-second link) their vet diligently weighed the pros and cons.

Tyisha Shaia

I live in Bedstuy but I travelled all the way to this vet because it was recommended by two friends who I know care deeply for their companion animals. I was also looking for a good vet that I didn't feel like was ripping me off, which is so hard to find... Unfortunately, the diagnosis is of my cat was terminal cancer and the tumor is inoperable. The surgeon was honest and I appreciated that she told me that operating would be extremely harmful and that the tumor would very likely come back, due to the location. Especially since the previous vet (that I didn't like) was eager to operate and potentially harm my cat and take thousands of my dollars. My vet (Dr. Lewis) seemed to actually care and suggested alternative medicines for my cat. They won't heal her but they can make her comfortable in my final months with her. I will be sure to take my other cats here if we ever have any issues and I highly recommend this vet office, esp Dr. Lewis.


I am so thrilled to have found WVC. The treatment was cats are tippy top again and my worries about their health abated. WVC has been in business for decades and serves the upper westside with great service and spot on diagnosis. I fully recommend WVC as the first choice in veterinary care. My cats are very pleased with their service.

Eric Swanson

Wonderful, kind, loving Drs, who are genuinely interested in their patients' "parents"

John Allen

The Westside Vet Center and our wonderful Dr. Bodkin have provided us with exceptional care during the lives of our first and now second Yorkshire Terriers. The service has been exceptional in terms of professionalism, a caring attitude and very efficient and courteous administration. We are very fortunate to have been provided with such great care for over 10 years. THANK YOU.

Rachel Gonzalez

Dr. Rutherford is a supreme vet! She has been caring for my elder cat since before her dx with Cancer. After her mastectomy, she is still going strong. I am never disappointed by the staff or Dr. Rutherford. Her kindness, patience and manner is simply beyond compassionate. Love her and would recommend her very highly! Thank you Westside !

david arroyo

If you love your pet this is the best place for him or her!

Sharon Duncan

An awesome team of professional, caring individuals, dedicated to the care of your pet.

Tatiana Goncharova

love this place! my cat always gets the best care, help and attention, I am especially grateful to Dr. Lewis.

Scottow King

Dr. Bodkin provided very useful and practical (and cost effective) treatment to our miniature dachshund, who had been suffering form diarrhea for some time and was mildly dehydrated. She suggested that he get intravenous fluids and spend the afternoon at the clinic facilities. He did do and was back to his normal self promptly. This was our first trip but we have no hesitation recommending the services. All of the staff were humane and friendly.

michelle dolnick

I bring both of my dogs to Westside, and the care that they have received is excellent. It is a welcoming place. The only aspect that I am not crazy about is that I see a different vet almost every time, which makes for less than optimal continuity - but I also contrition this as my schedule is difficult so I can't pick an appointment when a particular doc is there. They are warm and caring with my fur babies, and I trust the care that they receive. A bit pricier than some, but worth it for piece of mi d.

anna korchek

Cannot say enough wonderful things about Westside doctors and staff. When I found a stray and needed immediate help, they squeezed us in right away. He hadn't been spayed and sprayed the pet carrier. When I came to pick him up after the procedure, they brought him out in a new carrier free of charge. They are loving and thoughtful and really good at what they do. I've called at 3 in the morning when my cat was sick and someone was there to help. I've never experienced a vet practice that was so accessible.

Alex Gaillard

Amazing and friendly staff! All appointments have been on time and made us feel part of the family. Love the neighbourhood!

Heidi Sandreuter

I've been taking my cockapoo to Dr Lewis for seven years now and I can't recommend Westside Veterinary highly enough. The staff is super friendly, the follow-up is great and Dr Lewis is fantastic. The entire operation is a well-oiled machine and everyone truly loves animals. I appreciate how the whole team works to care for my sweet dog.

Stephanie Golden

They always take great care of my pets. I am never kept waiting long and also, I had an emergency and they were very responsive and caring. Highly recommend!

Leila Bruno

One of the animal assistants there shared a picture with me on Insta so I decided to follow her, I came across a picture of the entire staff inside the establishment with drinks (assuming alcoholic) and even marijuana blunt in one of their hands. This is absurd and poor animals that had endure the smell of whatever was in that thing.

Barbara Zinn

Simply the best! I travel from the East side for 25 years and 3 pips. Would never go anywhere else. They saved the life of 2 of my pups. They are the best!

A Wallace

Super accommodating, very knowledgeable, and always providing excellent care for our two dogs. I recommend Westside Vet without reservation.

Sue Sinclair

Dr. Yim is wonderful. Our dog loves to visit her. We've been going to see her for about 12 years. Our dog has been through any number of ailments - broken toe nails, benign cysts (even on the eyelid), hotspots and now arthritis. Each time she's explained the situation very well, the treatments were practical, and has given us enough information/supplies to take care of him at home.

Alyson Friedman

Our family has had the privilege of our dogs being under the care of this practice for 25 years. Our beloved dogs were given the best care and our family was always given the most considerate treatment during very difficult times as well as during well visits. Our doctor, Dr. Napalitano and the doctors, vet techs and office staff at the West Side Veterinary Center really care about their patients and families. I would recommend this practice without hesitation because they have 24 hour care and specialists to address a wide range of pet issues. I find the personal care and attention to be the most comforting aspect of this practice.

melodie Gonzalez

I love this clinic... They have been so great with both our Maltese and cat. They were so supportive when our elderly cats passed away and even made paw print

joanna tenelema

Amazing staff They help me with my sick kitten right away. They show great care towards my kitten. The doctors are amazing. love this place

Sweet Domicile

The staff here take such good care of us, more importantly our aging pup, each time we visit. Whether he has an upset stomach or he’s thrown his neck out, they are so thorough to determine what’s happening and do it with such care. He recently had to stay over night and it was so hard on us but we knew he was in great hands. The front desk always accommodates us with ease for emergency visits! We used to live a few blocks away but moved further north so we’ve debated finding a vet closer but just can’t go anywhere else. We trust them too much!

Mohammed Shaik

A friend recommended this place when my cat was having a pretty terrible allergic reaction to his vaccines. The staff and Dr. Lauren were just perfect. They gave me a plan of action on the phone so I knew what to expect when I got to their ER (on a snowy Saturday evening no less). Dr. Lauren gave me updates every 15 minutes and I was able to take my cat home that evening. In NYC, it's hard to find good people -- people that are really accommodating and supremely competent. And Westside Vet Center are good people.

Liam O'Neil

I wish westside saw people!! From the moment you walk in, you know you are among caring, competent professionals. Everyone seems to be happy to wrk there and really loves animals. Facilities or clean pleasant and mother. The doctors are highly qualified and compassionate. And the technicians are both keep cool and pleasant. Their hours are extremely client friendly. The location is extremely convenient. And you know you’re in the right place. If they saw him at I would love my general practice care to them.

Luis Campino

Great service, amazing staff

Marsha Zuckerman

Caring, efficient, knowledgeable, excellent. Thanks Westside Vet.

Caiphia Hepburn

Because they held my dog for 12 hrs for a 30 minute procedure. I brought my dog in at 8am she didnt get her procedure until 3 when we called.36 minutes later we got a phone call saying she just into recovery. She wouldnt be ready for pickup until 7 or 8 pm. My dog was just sitting there for 7 hrs. We also had some of the unecessary charges removed before we left $800 down payment only to come back to her and found out they added even more charges, that wasnt on the itemized estimate. Which also went from something that would cost$25.75 to 101.00.

Lisa Minsky-Primus

Westside Veterinary Center did an incredible job taking care of my pet-- and my family. My daughter found a large tumor on her gerbil last week. Dr Cantor and the surgeon fixed our pet up, and the staff was fabulous. Everyone we spoke with was efficient and supportive. They made what could have been a very difficult situation into something that felt safe and easy. Thank you!!!

Karina Tate

I recently moved to NYC. Unfortunately my doggie had a bit of a tooth emergency. I wasn't sure where to take her, so I did my research online and came across Westside Veterinary Center. I'm usually skeptical when I come across a place that has so many positive reviews online, but due to my dog's emergency I decided to give it a shot. I am so happy I did. I was truly impressed by the way they treated me and my Roxy. I didn't even have an appointment scheduled, they told me I could just drop in. I thought for sure I would have to wait at least an hour for a vet to see us-NOPE- the vet saw us right away. I use the word vet, but instead I should call her an Angel. Dr. Rutherford took such great care of Roxy. As soon as she saw her, she was able to diagnose her, and make her comfortable and without pain. Roxy ended up having oral surgery, and a few teeth extracted. Angel Rutherford was Roxy's surgeon and saw her every step of the way. Roxy is now perfectly fine, chewing on her little toys and being the happy little doggie she has always been. I truly recommend Westside Veterinary Center to anyone, this place is what all Veterinary Centers should be like. You can tell every employee here really care and love what they do! P.S. the prices were very reasonable. Oral surgery on a dog can be quite pricey. I was expecting a big bill, but was relieved to find that everything was priced fairly.

Went there for the first time a few weeks ago, the front desk staff was very helpful and when I called they recommended a Vet based on my dogs needs. I saw Dr. Brodsky and was very happy with him. He took time with us and set up a plan to help my pup with his skin problems, would definitely recommend!

Erica Martin

Dr. Brodsky and his colleagues are the best. He's been caring for our pets for over 25 years. He really takes time with every pet and is always available to discuss your pet's health.

Marilyn Povodator

For 16 years, Dr. Kim Rosenthal has been caring for my chocolate cocker spaniels. She is an excellent diagnostician, patient and so loving to all the animals I have seen her with. And especially noteworthy, she doesn’t order tests unless absolutely necessary. The nurses and front office (especially Tina and Gina) are all so professional and helpful. I live on the east side and happily come crosstown for the overall excellent care I receive at Westside Vet!

Tatyana PAVLOV

Excellent service, flexible hours and great doctors! Very friendly and caring people!

Debby Afraimi

LOVE Westside Vet! One of my cats is a HOT MESS. He has neurological issues and issues with allergies so I've had to assemble a dream team of specialists all over NYC to care for his various needs. I've been to four different veterinary practices in the past 3 months (because Westside doesn't have the MRI and other equipment to diagnose the neurological issues) and Westside is by far the best. Doctor Rutherford is amazing, and my cats love her. I live in Harlem and even though there are veterinarians closer to me, I shlep my cats to Westside for their care. I really can't recommend them enough.

Amy Cummings

We have used Westside Vet for years and years. The staff is consistently friendly, compassionate and helpful. I have frequently required same day appointments, and they are always able to accommodate our furry family. We love Westside Vet!

Laura van Straaten

I wish the medical practices I go to for myself were as organized and well run as this veterinary practice.....probably no coincidence that the whole front desk and most of the practice is staffed by women! I love this place and so does my dog!

Katie Kramer

Recently visited with our cat, as we have been in search of a new vet in the neighborhood. All of the staff and doctors were incredibly attentive and answered my many questions. Will definitely return.

Susan Baker

I have gone to Westside over the course of three dogs’ long and happy lives. Although Stuart Brodsky is my go-to, any of the vets I’ve seen there have exhibited the same operative ethic of caring, patience and thoughtful treatment. Procedures are explained, choices given, and follow up calls by the veterinarian are what I’ve experienced through the years, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for the medical care of my dog.

Suzanne LaFont

My puppy was attacked and bitten in the face. They saw us very quickly. Dr Lauren seemed very caring and patient. 4 instead of 5 stars because they separated me from my dog to clip the wound area and flush it. I would preferred to stay with her. Will go back there. It was clean and the staff were helpful and nice.

Elizabeth Hayt

The veterinary doctors at West Side are the finest I have ever known. Their medical care of my many generations of dachshunds has consistently been as outstanding as it has been loving. My questions are answered with thoroughness and even the most ordinary of procedures, such as a dental cleaning, is never hastily undertaken, but rather considered in terms of my dog’s age and overall heath. The nurses and technicians are equally attentive, patient and kindhearted. The animal hospital is efficiently run, clean, and well-stocked with medication and special food, should a pet require it. In an emergency, I have always been able to rely on the staff to treat both my pet and me with the seriousness that the situation warrants. I urge anyone who is seeking the highest quality veterinary care to turn to West Side. You will not be disappointed.

Vivian Falto

They have been my cats' health care providers for six years and counting! Best doctors, nurses, techs and front desk staff. Always available to answer questions and to troubleshoot an issue. You cannot go wrong choosing them.

anna korchek

Cannot say enough wonderful things about Westside doctors and staff. When I found a stray and needed immediate help, they squeezed us in right away. He hadn't been spayed and sprayed the pet carrier. When I came to pick him up after the procedure, they brought him out in a new carrier free of charge. They are loving and thoughtful and really good at what they do. I've called at 3 in the morning when my cat was sick and someone was there to help. I've never experienced a vet practice that was so accessible.

Andrew Goldberg

Terrific staff. Very recommended

Marc Liepis

We have had two of our dogs in the care of Westside and cannot speak higher of them. From our regular vet to any of the support staff and other doctors and nurses, we have never received anything but the best care and completely personable service no matter when the appointment or whatever the need. Highly recommended.

Alex Gaillard

Amazing and friendly staff! All appointments have been on time and made us feel part of the family. Love the neighbourhood!

Lara T

Our rescue terrier spent a few weeks under the care of Dr. Melanie Friedman. I could not imagine a better experience. Our dog adores his vet! He was treated with love, warmth, and attentive thoughtfulness. He almost didn't want to leave! When he returned to our home, he was stronger and healthier than ever, and even better mannered! Dr. Friedman was always available to offer updates and advice, and has a straightforward and calming approach to treatment and caregiving advice. I recommend this vet practice, and especially Dr. Friedman, very highly!!!

Heidi Sandreuter

I've been taking my cockapoo to Dr Lewis for seven years now and I can't recommend Westside Veterinary highly enough. The staff is super friendly, the follow-up is great and Dr Lewis is fantastic. The entire operation is a well-oiled machine and everyone truly loves animals. I appreciate how the whole team works to care for my sweet dog.

Janet Davis

Astute diagnosis. Very compassionate.

Carol Barnett

We have been clients since the office was opened. Our dogs have been treated for all types of illnesses and regular checkups, dentals and spaying. We wouldn’t go anywhere else. We are extremely happy with the vets and surgery teams.

Stephanie Golden

They always take great care of my pets. I am never kept waiting long and also, I had an emergency and they were very responsive and caring. Highly recommend!

jay andors

Excellent care, sincere concern and understanding of both my needs and my cats needs I can’t express how much I appreciate the way Dr. Brodsky Guided me I highly recommend this practice

Sara Pasik

Dr. Cynthia Yim is a gem. She shows an incredible amount of compassion towards her patients. As everyone knows, dogs tend to hate being at the vet, but Cynthia does everything in her power to make them as calm and cared for as possible. She’s also extremely thorough and on point, and will work with you through multiple options — which is necessary for those of us without deep pockets.

rebecca carroll

Dr. Rosenthal is my primary vet but they are all great. Dr. Rosenthal came highly recommended from a long-time pet owner in my building. She has taken wonderful care of my rescue, Annie, and when I was concerned about Annie during Dr. R's vacation - she called me directly. She is the best vet possible - I wish my doctors were so committed to her patients.

Anne Reingold

The veterinarians at West Side Vet never steer me wrong when it comes to our two dogs and cat. They've taken such good care or our little ones and always follow with a phone call the next day to see how they're doing. The office is clean and friendly and I always feel like our pets will be treated with love and care.

Vishrut Patel

Professional, welcoming, and quality first - Westside Vet has provided us consistently great service for our puppy. We feel confident bringing him and at ease asking questions. The staff are very attentive and not only does our dog feel stress-free, so do we. From the patience of the administrators to the attentive doctors, Westside Vet provides a high quality of care and is highly recommended.

Steve Ss

I only recently started going there, as my cat is getting older and having some joint issues. They were all very nice and courteous. It is also a great location for me. Dr. Rutherford is a very thorough practitioner and was very gentle and sweet with my grumpy cat. He is having some new issues and, again she is very thorough with the options we have and is giving me the best guidance as how to proceed, step by step. Aside from some billing mistakes, it has been a terrific experience going there.

Chris McGinn

Helpful & took an emergency walk in. Was very busy tho it was Sat.

Laverne Leonard

I have been going to Westside Vet for years with both of my large German shepherd dogs. All of the doctors that treated my dogs were good, but Dr. Karen Cantor is the BEST. She has always been attentive and accessible! If I needed her and left her a message, she always got right back to me. Even while on vacation. I felt secure in her hands with my large babies. I have recommended someone recently to Westside Vet and they love Westside Veterinary too. One of my 12 year babies just died, I bought her to Westside Veterinary Center and they loving took care of her for me. But should i get another dog, I will definitely bring them to Westside Veterinary Center.

Taybone Saw

Friendly and professional, fair prices

Robin Feldman

Highly recommend them. Dr Napolitano is wonderful. Murray the office manager couldn't make you feel more welcome and taken care of.

Elaine Comparone

Worried about my beloved cat Baci"s unusual lack of interest in his food, I bundled him up and took him to Westside Vet Center. I was able to see a vet within 20 min.----without an appointment! Fortunately, the doctor could find nothing wrong and offered a couple of options just in case. I refused her suggestions, but then decided to bring him back the next day, since I was leaving for a trip and entrusting Baci to a visiting caretaker. I chose to follow the suggestions given by the previous vet and Baci began eating again almost immediately. I felt I could leave him with a caretaker and not worry. I found the whole operation at WVC to be impressively well organized.The two vets I dealt with instilled me with confidence. Many thanks to WVC!


Dr. Lewis is a very good doctor. She is nurturing and caring . She knows how to calm my Caramel down when she is nervous or scared. This place is professional and takes priorities towards their patients. There are other Vets close to my house, but none of them are like Westside Veterinary Center. Thank you Westside Veterinarian.

leslie concannon

Everyone here is so friendly and welcoming. The vets are down to earth. They communicate clearly. I always feel like my dog has been well taken care of. And they do not make your problems bigger. I get in and out without lengthy wait time and they do take the time that is needed. no rushing.

Gina Hernandez

I've been going to this clinic for 15+ years. They have treated all my fur babies as their own. I've run into finacial difficulties for one of my babies, and they've worked with me on making payments. Not even the ASPCA would do that for me. I will always be a loyal customer. I highly recommend this clonic.

Walter Srebnick

Excellent, caring treatment of our cat. Dr. Brodsky is a superb vet. And there is a totally professional, wonderful, involved staff. Highly recommended.

Timothy Lister

If you want to know if you and your pet are right for this Vet Center, just drop by and sit in the waiting room for a while. Watch the staff and the vets interact with the pet owners and their pets. This not a giant place. I think there are a dozen vets. This is a caring place where everyone know what your pet means to you. You can't find a more reliable, talented, friendly group.

Ellen Coleman

THE BEST!! Waiting times a bit long even with appointment but that's my only negative. DR. Brodsky More than a great vet, a very caring person. Been coming for over 25 years. That in itself is a recommendation!

Marion Kohn

Kim Rosenthal is our vet. She is fabulous. Melanie Friedman, who has covered for Dr. Rosenthal when our dog required care while Dr. Rosenthal was on vacation, is also fabulous. But so are the techs and office staff. This is an amazing veterinary facility.

Alison Davis

Dr. Rutgerford is amazing!! We started seeing her with our previous dogs about 10 years ago and now we bring our new dog to her.

Michael Vallejos

I was attended by Dr. Lewis who was awesome and a pleasure to work with. Dr. Lewis, along with the rest of the staff are professional, knowledgeable, and caring. Also, their prices are reasonable and I did not feel like I was forced to do extra unnecessary diagnostics or tests. I’m glad I found a reliable vet nearby for my dog Kito so close to home!

Brigette Lepe

We moved from Dallas to NYC last summer. Freddy has been twice for scheduled visits. He seems to enjoy the visits (not so much the shots) and I have found both staff and doctors to be extremely pleasant.

Andrea Pukulis

We received the best care at Westside Vet! My dog was bit by another dog and I came in as a first time patient in a panic. They accommodated us quickly without an appointment, with empathy and care. Dr Melanie Friedman quickly won over my dog and made her incredibly comfortable. She even followed up the next morning with a call to see how my dog was feeling. Such a kind and caring staff- from receptionists to vets. I cannot recommend enough!

Carol Zeavin

Compassionate and knowledgeable care.

Paula Cohen

Thirty plus years, 2 beloved cats who lived to 15 & 16 and currently an almost 20 year old dog given the finest of care and attention. Whether it’s 2 am or 2 pm they are there for you. Dr. Cantor is a rock star Vet as are her colleagues. Great staff - Double those 5 stars to 10! With great appreciation for wonderful attention and care.

Adam Stone

Great doctors. Sometimes the front staff gets overwhelmed, though.

Diane Wondisford

Really appreciate the warm and gracious welcome we humans AND our attractive cats get each and every time we are at WVeterinary Center. The care is first-rate and the communication among the staff and w/us about our animal(s) condition(s) is clear, complete, and compassionate. Can’t recommend these folks highly enough!

Leesa Dean

Very happy with Westside and love Dr. Bodkin. Very knowledgeable, compassionate and genuinely cares about your pets. I feel like my kittens are in great hands.

jon kaufmann

We have had excellent services from Westside, from boarding at a couple of days notice to nail maintenance, health care and end of life services. They are compassionate and caring about both pets and pet parents, through six felines, they are the cat's meow.

Suzanne Barbero

i love Westside vet center! I usually take whatever vet is available and I’m always pleased w the service they are very efficient with scrips and appointments. Open 7 days a week is a real plus too for convenience !!!

Fusako Miyaji

I had my cat checked by Dr. Cloudman. She was the superb doctor who knows the cats so well and how to communicate with them so that they can stay calm and responsive throughout the visit. And she doesn't overmedicate the animal unnecessarily. Excellent humane doctor!

donna cephas

Wonderful health facility - every person on staff is professional and will love your pet. I couldn’t be more secure leaving our dog there for any medical treatment and boarding.

Maura Miller

We have been taking our puggle here for over 5 years. They are flexible when you have to get in last minute, and are great with following up. The doctors are friendly and thorough with every examination. Highly recommend them!

Merry Li

The doctors at Westside Vet are amazing. They love the animals, are extremely caring, not to mention knowledgeable and professional. I've met a couple of doctors who are all great, and Dr. Lewis, our main vet, is especially attentive and just the best. The supporting staff are all very nice and never says no to my dog begging for petting. Their 24/7 emergency service also offers a great peace of mind - my dog once got bitten late at night before I learned dog first aid, and I rushed him to Westside and he was immediately attended to by a nurse and the doctor came soon too and prescribed antibiotics. I recommend Westside to anyone who wants the best care for their furry friends!

Richard Farlow

While visiting New York, we had an emergency with our 4 lb HavaPoo; Lexi. We cannot sing enough praises for the kindness of the staff at Westside and for Dr. Lauren. From the emergency call to the receptionist, to the call with the triage nurse, to our check in, and then seeing Dr. Lauren, this team demonstrated empathy and a genuine caring attitude. We are very grateful to have meet such a quality group of people.

Chris McGinn

Helpful & took an emergency walk in. Was very busy tho it was Sat.

Dominic Carrozza

We the proud owners of two cats (and one kid). The people at West Side Veterinary Center are so nice, caring and accommodating that the visit to the vet is actually a pleasure. Cat people should not be concerned that they also cater to dogs, they do a great job with cats too!

Theresa Caragine

West side Vet has cared for our dogs for over 20 years. They have helped us introduce new rescues into our family, cared for them and have been there for our family when it was time to say goodbye. Through the years, we have only had good experiences. Our favorite vet is Dr Napolitiano. She is kind, patient, thorough, and trustworthy.

Lia Miller

Fantastic veterinary center. Lovely vets who are careful and take a lot of time and care with your pet. They estimated the bill for me and it came in right on the money, I didn't feel like they were any hidden costs.

Rebecca Kuznick

Great place!
