I scheduled an appointment for a general check up so it wasn't like I NEEDED to be seen that same day. When I asked if I could come in she did tell me their afternoon appointments were booked, if I really wanted her to squeeze me in I would have to expect to wait awhile to be seen. Or.....I could take an open appointment the following day where my wait time would be very minimal if any. I chose the next day and wasn't even finished filling out the form when my dog's name was called. Now maybe I just happen to pick a day when business was slow but it's not too often that any kind of doctor's office scheduling is right on time. (I expect to wait at least 20 minutes at my own doctor appointments, who doesn't?) Anyway, the visit went well. The doctor is friendly, the staff are nice - and I could tell they all work together well. I've been to some hospitals where the tension in the air between the staff is sooo obvious, it makes anyone feel uncomfortable, but this place has some good people.
I took my dog to see Dr. Osawa and he and his staff were very friendly and gave me the best service anyone could ask for. I will always go to North Park Veterinary Hospital.
My dog was attacked by a pit - and this was the place that saved him. I went in there practically hysterical and it was all a blur. They handled the "emergency" quite well, especially for not being an actual E R. The doctor there was great, he has a positive attitude and was even willing to stay there after hours to do surgery on my dog. I was not "sent away" or referred to another hospital because it was near closing time. My dog stayed overnight and the next day when I picked him up he looked like a sewn up puppet - but he is ALIVE and I appreciate every one who works at this place who helped.
This is a place to come to when you don't have much money. Real people who care. They understand about what is needed and what is available, and even though I am the type who only goes for what is needed I appreciate knowing there is more available. I respect that, they respect my choices and limits. It's all good.
Shop around some and you will find out that this hospital has the lowest prices. The doctor knows what he's doing, the staff is friendly and helpful
Dr. Osawa is an awesome vet! My dog has had a very bad stomach condition since birth and every time it flares up it is very painful for her...its kind of like puppy colitis. We have been to several different vets over the past 7 years to try and diagnose and prevent the flare ups, and they always prescribed harmful steroids and antibiotics. When we took her to Dr Osawa he took the time to thoroughly research the condition and prescribed a medicine called sulfasalazine which has been AMAZING! We haven't had a problem since! Dr Osawa is a very kind and caring vet and I think that everyone should take their pet there for the very best care.
Dr. Osawa is just awesome. I appreciate the great care that gave my dog in her time of need.
Thanks for getting my dog in right a way. I called and told them what was going on with my dog and the receptionist told me there was no appointments but to hold on. She came back within a minute and asked if I could come in right then.
nice job – I had xrays and other test ran on him since he was not looking so good and the price was great. I even called around later to see what others in the area would have charged and it was almost double.
The best place I have found. The staff is great. The facilities are first rate.
