breaking the law!!!!!!
this vet charges you a fee to use your credit card, this is illegal according to visa/mastercard regulations and they can be charged a 5,000 fee for this. when you tell them what they are doing is illegal, the vet screamed at me in front of the entire office and ranted that his brother is a lawyer. he treats me cat ok though but he wasn't nice to me

Never Again
I am not a vet and I even know not to stick a qutip in one ear and put the same end in the other ear. I couldn't believe it when I saw Dr Douche do that to my dog. If she had an ear infection in her left ear it would of been transferred to the right. Against my better judgement I left her there to get spayed. When I picked her up the next day she was covered in feeces. I had to drive home with my shirt over my nose and mouth. I understand my extremely house broken girl just had surgery and may have had an acciedent, but if she is left in your care she should not be returned to me in that condition. Esspecially with a fresh stitched insision. It is only sanitary that she would of been cleaned up. I have suspicion that she was just left in the cage to sit in her own increment and not let out while she was in their care, but I have no proof of that. Now she is bleeding from the vaginal area. It has been 1 week since the surgery and she is bleeding. I refuse to take her back there so now I have to pay another vet to make sure she is ok. I wouldn't go back there if they were free and I recommend you don't either. If you do watch Dr Douche cross contaminate your dog's ears with a qutip. (excuse my spelling)

If you like neglecting your pets, this is the place for you!
If there was a lower rating than one star, I would award it to North Wake. I had heard about this vet from my sister. Of course, like any owner who loves their pet I researched them . . . came across several negative reviews, but my sister said they were "so great" with her dog, I thought I'd give them a chance anyway.

My initial reaction was "Wow! What a great vet"! Initially, I was very impressed with the treatment and the care they took with my babies. So much so, that for the last 6 years I have driven 45min one way just to make sure my babies had the "best" treatment. However, the last few years I had started to notice a downward shift in both the treatment of my babies and the care they were given. Instead of handling them kindly, they started handling them quickly and matter-of-factly. They would loft my older handicap German shepherd up on that cold table like a sack of flower. She can't stand very well anymore and they didn't support her or even do anything to help calm her. To say the least, she was traumatized every time. This is how it has become. . . . now.

Our most recent visit was our last. I had taken our lab in to have the vet check her skin. After a quick once over he left. When he did return he shot my baby full of a highly potent steroid/hormone (this I found out later . . . when we transferred her med. records the new vet told me she had "never seen that much steroid used on a dog her size") without asking me or telling me a thing. When I asked him questions about her condition he was very vague and very curt . . . he obviously was not interested in answering my questions and left almost as quickly as he came.

My husband an I have a new baby at home. So, still concerned about our labs condition and even more concerned that this could be dangerous for our little girl, I called the vet the following morning. When I tried to ask the woman on the phone (another vet in this practice) the questions I did not get the opportunity to ask the day before, she very rudely snapped at me "I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS YOU WANT TO KNOW . . . I MEAN, WHAT DO YOU WANT? A DERMATOLOGY LESSON?"

If North Wake REALLY cared about the pets and people they serve, do you really think that two of the three vets in this practice would set such a negative example of concern for the patient or the parent? I am a teacher . . . and I LOVE my job. I get tickled to DEATH when I have a parent show concern and involvement in their child . . . because this shows me that the child is well loved and taken care of. Obviously this is not a concern for this veterinarian practice.

NOT EVERYONE TREATS THEIR PET LIKE A MEMBER OF THEIR FAMILY - IF THIS IS YOU, THEN NORTH WAKE IS THE PLACE FOR YOU! OTHERWISE I RECOMMEND YOU STAY AWAY.

World class vet by L P. at InsiderPages
If you are looking for vet that offers small talk about the weather or how cute your little furry one is, the go the big box store for your care. Dr. Darch is one of the most qualified Vets in the area and does not mess around or waste anyone time. His prices are almost 1/2 price of typical big box store vet and he has far more experience.

What is all the fuss about? by russell . at InsiderPages
I have been taking all my pets to North Wake for 6-8 years and I have tremendous respect for this facility. It seems in this day and age - almost everyone wants to complain.
I am so tired of whiners and complainers! You complainers just need to grow up.
