Click to report rating    3/3/14   2     1     2     1   Horrendous. Dr. Hamilton is all about money and not even gentle with your pet. No bedside manner and lots of tacked-on fees. RID: 50272

     7/31/13   2     2     2     1   We have been going to this facility for a few years now and have nothing but great things to say about it. The staff and doctors are friendly and compassionate. This has been the norm for the entire time, except for last night (7/30/2013) when we brought our cat in for an exam. The vet on duty was a Dr. Edward Hamilton who is the most impatient, arrogant, and rude person that I ever had the misfortune to know. What is more unfortunate is the fact that this Dr Hamilton is the owner of this facility. He took offense to every question we asked. He acted as though we were challenging his knowledge as a vet. He practically told us that we shouldn't question him due to his 35 years of experience. I would like to say that we will stay with this hospital because of the other staff members, however, after last night's horrible experience, that possibility is now in serious jeopardy. RID: 45993

Click to report rating    4/8/12   5     5     5     5   Dr. hamilton is a first rate Vet. He can be a bit cranky at times, but his medicine, and more particularly his surgery is so good I'm happy to put up with his very occasional "bad days." RID: 33414

Click to report rating    8/19/11   5     5     5     4   Dr Hamilton took care of my dog while I was visiting in New York. I was very pleased with the treatment for an ear infection that my dog Buster was given. I would go back and visit this clinic if in New York again. Very friendly staff and great service. Thank You Dr H RID: 27037

Click to report rating    1/8/09   2     1     1     1   Dr Hamilton is a cranky old incompetent quack. Please check his schooling (New Mexico) and see if any scholarly articles (none) or any innovative procedures have been developed (none). Especially in today's economy, he will milk your wallet dry because the practice just does not do the business it should because of this old fool. His partners are suffering because Dr Hamilton is currently under investigation by New York State Office of Professional Discipline-don't believe me? call the Melville NYS Office of Professional Discipline yourself, and ask about Dr Edward Hamilton.

Click to report rating    7/7/08   2     1     1     1   EXTREMELY RUDE AND INCOMPETENT VETERINARIAN, EDWARD R HAMILTON, DVM TRIES TO CONVINCE PET OWNERS TO ADD ADDITIONAL PROCEDURES AND SERVICES THAT YOUR PET SIMPLY DOES NOT NEED. VET DOES NOT WELCOME THE INPUT OF THE CAREGIVER AS TO YOUR ANIMAL'S NEEDS, CONDITION, ETC. DR HAMILTON YELLS AT YOU IF YOU TRY TO GIVE INPUT. I IMPLORE ANYONE READING THIS, DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU LOVE YOUR ANIMAL, THEY DID AN UNNECESSARY OPERATION ON MY PET, RESULTING IN DEATH. AFTER THE FACT, I SEARCHED THE WEB AND FOUND EXPERT ADVICE AND MY PET DEFINITELY DID NOT NEED THE PROCEDURE PRESCRIBED, SIMPLE INEXPENSIVE MEDICINE WOULD HAVE CURED MY PET AT ANOTHER FACILITY. CALL THIS PLACE THE HOUSE OF DEATH. HOLD ON TO YOUR WALLET. RID: 9205

Click to report rating    11/1/07   5     4     5     5   Was unhappy with my previous vet, it was a BIG practice, we always felt like just a number to them. This vet is much better, they seem to really care about your pet and are very accomodating. Only reason they got a "4" from me on facilities is because they aren't available 24 hours for emergencies like some animal hospitals are. Overall, we like this place very much! RID: 6337

I was apprehensive at first but was totally surprised and happy I made the move. The staff is great and the Drs are wonderful.They care more about your pets than making money. I highly recommend this place. RID: 3310
