February 2018

“I like the doctors and staff. Thanks.” —Yong, 2/1/18

December 2017

“I think you all are great, and the new furniture helps, but the physical plant is so old and unappealing that I’d have to give a ‘fair warning’ to anyone I’d refer. I know there’s nothing you can do about the age and state of the building, and certainly hope that somewhere down the line you have the financial support to rebuild. Until then, I’ll still be a loyal client.” —Nina, 12/28/17

Everyone is friendly, courteous, prompt, kind, and helpful. I have recommended RVH to everyone I know, and will continue to do so. I am especially appreciative of the Saturday & Sunday hours.

“We usually have a wonderful experience at RVH. Been taking my dogs there since 1982 when just Dr. Kadner and Dr. Heino were there. Then there was Dr. Susumi, and along came many others who have been kind. Only one person was unkind to me at RVH and it wasn’t a dr. Dr, Kung in recent times and Dr. Beestman have been great with Aksel, as well as with us. Victoria is the best and there are others there who go out of their way to be kind to me and my precious four legged children. I guess coming there for 34 years about sums it up! I love it there and always feel at home and cared for. We had two of my three dogs sent to the Rainbow Bridge there, and sad as it was, I knew they were in good hands. Keep up the good work! I recommend you all the time! Happy Holidays!” —Linda, 12/30/16

October 2016

“Thanks so much to the vet (can’t remember her name) on Sunday for being reasonable with re-prescribing Mometamax for Katie’s ear infection that came back.

It’s scary to bring your kitty to a new clinic…especially for surgery. Everyone was great! Thank you for such a positive experience! :-D” —Lucinda, 7/25/16

“I love Rainier Vet Hospital. And Colleen Beestman is great. The only thing I find somewhat frustrating is I always seem to have to wait 20-25 minutes beyond my appointment before being seen by the vet. So we sit in a room waiting. and then it always seems to take an inordinate amount of time to get checked out, even when it doesn’t seem to be that busy. If you could improve that, our experience would be very near perfect.” —Mark, 7/20/16

“Everyone there always takes very good care of our pets. Grace, I think, loves you all the most.” —Neil, 7/19/16

“Love you guys! Always super friendly and great handling our dog. Only one very minor criticism. The dark wall color and tile on the floor always make the place feel a bit dirty. Even though I know it is very clean, you can’t achieve the same effect the usual bright hospital/vet interior. Your staff more than makes up for it though!” —Ellen, 7/10/16

“As usual, we just had a great visit. We have a 17yo doxie who is (all of a sudden) showing her age, and a 7yo rescue doxie who has some issues. The staff are really awesome with both dogs, and our attending vet was wonderful. She took her time with both dogs. We were also seen rather quickly this time (there’s usually a bit of a wait, but that just gives us a chance to meet the other patients). I have nothing negative to say!” —Judy, 4/4/16

“I’ve been going there since Dr. Kadner. I really liked Dr. Heino and so was concerned that the type of care both of them gave might not continue. So, far I’ve not been disappointed. Though it’s different not being sure which doc we’ll get, I can say all have seemed quite genuine in their concern and knowledgeable in their care. I do like having appointments so the wait is shorter, too.” —Kathy, 3/17/16

“Thanks for fitting my beautiful male dog ‘Evander Holyfield’ in for a Sunday morning stitch up. I appreciate the fact you allowed me to comfort him during his injection for anesthetic.

I’ll let you know how the wound heals.” —David, 1/29/16

“I’ve been bringing my dogs, and the dogs of family members here since Dr. Heino. I believe I get excellent care for a reasonable price. I miss Chris, hope he comes back to work at Rainier Vet. I have had nothing but great service and I would rather have resources be spent on animal care than a new renovated waiting room for instance.” —David, 1/27/16

“I’ve been at Rainier Vet for at least 10 years. I trust them and they take such special care of my pets. I’m a customer forever.” —Larry, 1/27/16

“We love your vets. We have had 2 very ill dogs treated by your staff and we are so happy we switched over to your hospital.” —Frank, 1/27/16

“Everyone has been friendly professional and gentle with Harvey.” —Tori, 1/26/16

“Very impressed with the friendliness and prompt responses from everyone on staff here! I couldn’t be happier to make Rainier Vet Hospital my new vet!” —Rocky, 1/24/16

“Very friendly and attentive staff. Dr was thorough and explained everything.” —Tracy, 1/24/16

“Everyone has been amazing! Very likely the best veterinary clinic I’ve ever dealt with. From the receptionist, to the vet techs to the Doctor’s; when I step through your door I feel that we are receiving quality care. Even if my pup is convinced otherwise.” —Nicholas, 1/11/16

“Thank you for taking good care of our dog, Oli, on our first visit on Friday. Everyone we encountered at Rainier Veterinary Hospital seemed to genuinely care about Oli and enjoy being there. Oli had cut the pad on her rear paw, which is why I originally called you. She also needed an annual check-up. I was offered a same-day appointment for the annual check-up and told her paw would be looked at during the exam. I appreciated the efficiency of the exam and common sense approach to care of Oli’s paw. I won’t hesitate to refer Rainier Veterninary Hospital.” —Caroline, 1/10/16

“I thought you had friendly staff. I’ve bbq used your clinic years ago and like to support the smaller clinics” —Mary, 1/9/16

“Happy with vet staff but the check out takes too long! Thanks for asking!!” —Jim, 1/7/16

“I want to thank you all for your help and care of my puppy Ranger. He was really skittish and you were all so patient and understanding. Thanks to Dr. Cassidy for being thorough and explaining things clearly. I felt like we were able to come up with a plan and I felt that Ranger was thoroughly looked over. She provided a lot of great advice on caring for him, addressing more than what we came in for specifically. Even though we didn’t get to see her until about 30 min after our appointment time, she did not seem rushed with us so I know she gives good thorough care to each of her patients.” —Jenn, 1/6/16

“I have been very pleased with the services that this Hospital has been providing my pet. You have definitely put my mind at ease, and my Snorky loves to come to your offices. Everybody loves her and she soooo spoiled!!!!!!!!!!! Your services, as well as patience, and especially the prices are great and very appreciated. It was my first time using any boarding facility in Seattle, and your prices as well as the love for animals put my mind at great ease. In fact I worried that she might’ve been a handful!!! I would highly recommend, and in fact I have recommended your hospital to other friends. Thank you so much for all you do and your continued genuine care for the animals and the owners!” —Mona, 1/6/16

“I always get excellent service at Rainier Vet. The staff is very helpful and always follows up with me.” —Ron, 1/4/16

December 2015

“Rainier Vet Hospital is wonderful, compassionate, and reasonably priced. They are great to families and pets alike. I was recommended to them, and I recommend them to others.” —William, 12/26/15

“Everyone is really friendly and makes me feel like they care about my pet. Even though Dr. Cassidy was running late, she always takes plenty of time with us and makes sure we understand everything.” —Rebekah, 12/23/15

“We have three pets, a 7yo dachshund, a 10yo cat, and a 17yo dachshund. All are patients at Rainier. The doctors and staff are extremely attentive, and take great care of our fuzzy family members. The cat especially can be quite difficult. But the staff is patient and caring and really does a wonderful job, and are very polite. My only complaint (and it’s rather minimal) is that there are always long wait times, even when the appointments are first thing in the morning. We always arrive early, but end up waiting beyond our scheduled appointment time, often 10-20 minutes (sometimes longer), and then end up waiting for quite some time to check out once the appointment has ended. I try very hard to be respectful of the staff’s time. It would be wonderful if that courtesy was returned.” —Judy, 12/23/15

“Always very nice to my pup! She LOVES coming in to see doctor Choy and the rest of the staff!” —Harriet, 12/16/15

“I appreciate the great care given my dogs! I always sit in the waiting room imagining ways the space could serve all of you and your customers better. It is very awkward, especially for check in and out. Your hours extended to Sunday are very helpful, especially because I work full-time during the week.” —Gina, 12/14/15

“Excellent!” —Lori, 12/11/15

“Dr. Choy is incredible. Sincerely cares about her patients and goes above and beyond to make sure they get good care. I do feel she is a bit over worked.” —Tina, 12/10/15

“Dr Choi is my top pick at this facility.. she is very gentle towards my furbabies!” —Peg, 12/10/15

“I love that you are open on Sundays! I also love the sensitivity of the staff about my “girls” Madeline and Eloise. Happy Holidays!” —Alicia, 12/10/15

“I can’t ask for better care for my dog Apollo.” —Scott, 12/7/15

“Had a good visit when I recently brought my dog in for a check-up and vaccinations. Very short wait and a very personable vet. Good job!” —Michelle, 12/1/15

November 2015

“Fortunately you still have the nicest/knowledgeable staff around. My wifes family has taken their animals to Rainier Vet for decades. Its nice to see a small business is still around in Seattle” —Brent, 11/28/15

“My experience with Rainier Veterinary Hospital was good and I felt they did an exceptional job with my dog.” —Chris, 11/24/15

“I brought my dog in to have her nails clipped. In and out. Thank you.” —Pinky, 11/19/15

“I like the fact that our Vet was patient oriented as opposed to other Vets that are interested in upselling whatever they can.” —Trey, 11/18/15

“We recently relocated to Seattle and wanted to find a vet close to home. Rainier Veterinary Hospital is very close to where we reside, so we opted to go there to have our dog Nin examined and get updated vaccinations. Although Nin is not a fan of the vet, we did have a successful visit. The vet was very understanding and patient. She was able to build rapport with Nin using treats and get all of his vaccinations completed. She was attentive to information we provided so she could interact with Nin as easily as possible. We are pleased the experience went so well and plan to make Rainier our home for all Nin’s needs.” —Josh, 11/18/15

“I had made an appointment for two procedures (a vaccination and a nail trim). I did not ask for, or expect to get (and get charged for), an exam. If this is your usual practice, I suggest that you advise clients in advance that they will be paying for more than they expected. Thanks.” —Susan, 11/13/15

“I’ve been using RVH for 18+ years to care for my dogs. Much has changed during that time. I remain a loyal customer because of the genuine care and concern RVH staff show me and my pets – in every stage of health and life. New, contemporary furnishings or decor do not indicate compassion or quality of care. I like to think that RVH will always retain it’s homespun feel and continue to serve the community as is, without ‘up-selling’ vanity products and unneeded procedures.” —Margaret, 11/10/15

“You do not need surveys. They are a big nuisance. 1. If I was unhappy over a particular thing I’d tell you. 2. If I was unhappy in general I’d go somewhere else. 3. If I’m happy I’ll return and I’ll tell my friends so you will see your business grow. Surveys are a negative. Not need to reply.” —Benjamin, 11/2/15

“You folks are doing a great job as always and I have no suggestions for improvement. Keep up the good work and I appreciate the expanded weekend hours.” —Stephan, 11/1/15

October 2015

“I miss feeling like there is some long time expertise there. Everyone is really nice but I feel more comfortable with people who have been in the field for awhile.” —Sedora, 10/26/15

“We appreciate how you fit us into your schedule and take good care of us. And, you remember us! Dr. Choi is great, as is the entire staff. Thanks” —Adam, 10/24/15

“We love you guys. We feel like our pets are loved and well-taken-care-of. We love that we can get an appointment quickly, when needed. Also, your rates are extremely reasonable. One thing that we have noted about your clinic is the fact that the air is stagnant and stuffy. Perhaps some fans or air purifiers would be helpful. Just a suggestion. : )” —Jenny, 10/23/15

“We LOVE Dr. Choy. The basic exams and inoculations are fairly priced. The neutering is SO EXPENSIVE. We just rescued two pug brothers from Craigslist and it is almost $500 EACH to neuter. We are trying to do the right thing and aren’t even going to keep the dogs so the expenses we incur are just to ensure the safety of the dogs. We can’t pay $1000 and then find a forever home for them! Thanks!” —Kelly, 10/15/15

“We love you and so does Shadow. Thank you.” —Neal, 10/7/15

“Good service. They really care about the pet’s…” —Robert, 10/5/15

“Cleocatra and I love this clinic. It has such good charm and the prices are great. When I go there I feel like I am paying for vet services and not an expensive looking clinic. Thanks!” —Jamie, 10/5/15

“Thank you for your analysis of my MomCat’s medical issues and for not insisting that my slowing dying cat get procedures (ie. teeth cleaning, vaccinations) that are not warranted at this stage of her 16 year old life. MomCat is doing better thanks to the subcutaneous fluids and special diet and her quality of life has improved. She is a joy to have in my life.” —Ann, 10/1/15

September 2015

“Your pricing on an ultrasound is beyond my means, so Sophie Ann is dwindling without a diagnosis.” —Susan, 9/29/15

“My dog LOVES coming to see Dr. Choy! She is the best! Thanks for taking care of us.” —Harriet, 9/28/15

“It seems you’re making some improvements. Bravo for that.” —Ashley, 9/28/15

“This was an Amazing experience do to the fact that Drizzle is now apart of my house. His health is very important to me an will Love him always. The service here was Phenoninal….” —Lori, 9/28/15

“I’ve been bringing my dog to Rainier Vet for years and have received excellent care. The doctors and staff are very caring and knowledgeable. Couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.” —Richard, 9/28/15

“I have been going to Rainier Vet since I arrived in Seattle in 1997. One my second doggie in 15 yrs and RVH has been there the whole way! It is important for an owner to trust who looks after his best friend with regards to healthcare.” —Omar, 9/28/15

“Dr. Choy has been tremendously help and patient with trying to diagnos my pets injury. I’m feel fortunate to have her as our Vetrinarian.” —Tina, 9/26/15

“Harpo and Bella like you too!” —Peg, 9/26/15

“Very friendly. On time for appointments.” —Scott, 9/24/15

“This ‘visit’ for me was just a phone call. Dr. N returned my call promptly and was very helpful. I’ve been with the practice since Dr. Heino was my old GSD’s vet, and am pleased with the updates and changes going on in the practice. I briefly considered moving to Madison Vet because they are open on Sundays so I’m happy to see you guys will now be open on Sundays. I support the recent price increases as I understand the office needs to be profitable, and I feel the improvements in comfort and efficiency (using email / online services when previously I had to send a fax to the vet if I wanted to leave a detailed message, opening Sunday, improving waiting room a bit) are worth it. Thank you for continuing to serve our community and furbabies!” —Cassandra, 9/22/15

“Wonderful people – wish the medications were a bit less expensive – hard to do the cost on a fixed income.” —Fai, 9/21/15

“I am frankly concerned about living my dog in your care. The first time he was returned to me reeking of feces and urine. I required that you clean him before you returned him this time which resolved that problem but he had virtually lost all movement in his back legs apparently from a lack of exercise. While this is sufficient for healthy dogs, when your patient is known to be loosing mobility your failure to understand the needs of your own patient speaks volumes of the indifference you have to each individual dogs needs.” —Sonia, 9/20/15
