We Love To Hear About Your Experience With Us!
Very clean!! The staff is fantastic and welcoming. Dr. Mary Xanthos is amazing! She was very knowledgeable about our new puppy. She explained in detail the vaccines our puppy would need. She answered all our questions and concerns. We feel good knowing our puppy has a great vet!! Thanks, East Rockaway Vet!!!
Wonderful animal hospital! Everyone there, from the doctors to the receptionists to the vet tech/assistants, is fantastic. From my first visit, which was at the height of the pandemic, with my very sick little boy, I have known nothing but kindness and compassion from all the staff. The care afforded to your pet is top-notch, as the doctors and staff care for your pet as if he/she is part of the family. Dr. Xanthos is genuinely wonderful. Highly recommended!
After an emergency incident with my dog where my regular vet (and several others) turned us away, East Rockaway vet is now my primary vet after having such a fantastic experience with their compassionate and attentive staff. The office is clean and you never wait long. The prices are more than fair, and the vets are very respectful of running tests and things that might create a large bill. My dog’s chronic tummy issues have been the best they’ve ever been since seeing the vets there.
