Click to report rating    3/25/14   5     5     2     3   My six year multiple animal experience with this clinic has been both good and bad. I will not use Dr Yeung after his uncaring and uninformed response (he was completely unfamiliar with my dog's fairly common health issue) to an emergency call I made. And be prepared for a long wait - often an hour or even more. That said, I have found most of the vets and staff here very good, very empathetic, and very respectful. Just like with human health care, though, get copies of all blood work, learn to read them for yourself, get second opinions before committing to expensive elective surgeries or tests. Conditions requiring tests costing hundreds of dollars have miraculously disappeared or become much less serious when I got a second opinion, on more than one occasion. RID: 50682

Click to report rating    3/25/14   5     4     5     5   Have dealt with this clinic off and on for 30 years. All the vets I have dealt with here and especially Dr. Al Longair, who is a truly kind, caring, compassionate caregiver to animals have been very good. I can't say enough. I have dealt with others in the Cowichan Valley but came back here as I feel so much more confidence that my animals are truly cared about. As for expensive all vets are expensive - I at least feel I get value for my money. RID: 50676

Click to report rating    12/13/13   5     5     4     5   I have been bringing my pets to this clinic for over 20 years. I moved away and tried to find a more local vet to deal with emergencies but found most of them egotistical and expensive so I continue to drive an hour each way and take holiday time from work to take my animals there (I currently have 5). I have never felt like I am being overcharged, can have a respectful discussion with the vet about my pet's health issues and they make sure I am educated and informed about any issues. The surgeon, Dr Wiren is phenomenal and I trust him to do any orthopedic surgery above any other vet in the province. The staff are all lovely and caring. Dr Longair has gone above and beyond in dealing with some of the health issues my pets have had and I trust him completely. RID: 48751

Click to report rating    4/27/13   5     5     5     5   Absolutely best Vet I've ever dealt with! Our 4 year old lab needed knee surgery and we went for initial consult to get concrete diagnosis. Front office staff were amazing (Thank you Joanna!) and got us in the same week for consult with Dr Wiren. Dr. Wiren knew exactly the problem, showed us models of the knee issue our Lab was experiencing, presented us with 3 different surgical options (all 3 have almost the exact same success rate yet range thousands in price and invasiveness ) the care our Lab received before, during and after surgery was exact, professional and caring. I don't normally use these rating services but other than standing on the roof top, this is the best way I can FULLY recommend Prevost, Joanna and the front staff and Dr. Wiren. If you have a lab needing knee surgery, you found the right place! SP, Port Alberni, BC RID: 42113

Click to report rating    2/6/13   5     5     5     5   I am rating Prevost Clinic on one experience only, kitty dental work. At Prevost I sought a second opinion from my previous clinic and was really pleased with a substantial reduction in price and a more relaxed timeline. I am very very happy with how the surgery and post-op care went with my cat. The staff were wonderful and the vet was excellent. Thanks Prevost! RID: 40228

Click to report rating    2/25/12   2     3     2     2   I was told this is the best Clinic in Duncan after moving here and leaving my amazing Vet in Richmond, BC. Sadly, I have not had good experiences, the four times I've tried them...The front office staff are friendly. The first vet I saw gave advice even I knew was suspect (and confirmed with another vet later on when the situaion worsened.) Charging an inflated consultation fee twice did not improve my feelings about this business. Nor did taking my dog for after surgery care while I sat in the waiting room. I've never ever had that happen before. Worst Vet service I've ever seen. I'm not some angry ranting person, just in awe of some questionable practices, care and prices (twice what I was charged in my previous vets for consults and we spent half the time talking about the Vet's dog!) So now I am travelling an hour away so I can get the care my dog deserves. Sorry Prevost, but you lost a customer... RID: 32475

Click to report rating    3/23/11   5     5     5     4   I have been going to this clinic since 1982 and have always found the vets I have seen to be very good Dr.Wiren , Dr A Longair & Dr S Lersche, I use Dr Lersche most the time now as that is my preference to just have 1 vet for my dogs, I highly recommend the clinic to my Puppy buyers.

Click to report rating    1/30/11   5     5     4     5   Have been going here for many years after too many bad experiences with veterinarians in Nanaimo. The staff are all great. Our two previous vets have left and we now have Dr Yeung for our four dogs. I find him to be thorough and if he doesn't know or is not sure he will research and get other opinions. Dr Yeung has a big heart and his concern includes follow up with phone calls which is rare now a days. He can be a little hard to get to know because he is from another culture but take the time because he can be quite funny and totally on board with options for your critters care. RID: 22473

Click to report rating    1/14/11   5     5     5     5   I have been with this clinic for 12years and always received great service and compassionate true loving care for my Dogs. My only concern is Dr Horace Yeung. I have had the pleasure of relying on his services twice and am sorry to say he does not meet the hi standard that the other staff offers. Just saying. If you love your pets and you want great health care for your animal do not see this doctor. I must say all other staff is great. Really above average!! RID: 22063

Click to report rating    12/6/10   5     5     5     5   Excellent bunch of people, Not sure what the other person was talking about Dr. Yeung. He is treating our dog and is wonderful, understanding, caring beyond. Never had that kind of treatment before, would recommend him to anyone, the whole staff is amazing, Thank you for all your dedication and love for Niner! RID: 21282

Click to report rating    10/10/10   3     4     4     3   Dr. Lerche was compassionate, respectful, helpful, and explained everything thoroughly and clearly. He also took my experience into account in determining appropriate care for my palliative dog.On the other hand, I once had to deal with Dr. Yeung for a late-night emergency. He was hard to understand, reluctant to come in, seemed unfamiliar with a common disorder my dog had, gave suggestions that indicated he was not listening to the symptoms I reported and I would never deal with him again. I wish this rating site would allow us to rate actual VETS,rather than the clinic which may contain many vets. The clinic is great; the ONE vet is not. RID: 20189

Click to report rating    4/8/10   5     5     4     5   Fantastic clinic with very knowledgeable staff. They were great with our older dog's knee surgery and he has recovered super fast. They also don't upcharge on prescriptions and will send you to the regular pharmacy to get the generic brand wherever possible. This is the first clinic I've ever been to where the vets will do this. Kudos and keep up the fantastic work! RID: 17442

Click to report rating    10/15/09   5     5     5     5   I am into my 29th year with this clinic. I recommend them highly to anyone that asks and I also refer my clients to them. They have and do go above and beyond at all times. If I need them in the middle of the night or at any time of the day, they are there. I have oftentimes needed to take one of my breeding ****es to them in stress, and they are always there. They are always there when I have to let an aged dog go whether it's a Monday or a Sunday. I have never in all the years that I have attended this clinic felt the need to go elsewhere for a 2nd opinion as I have complete and utter faith in them. Long live Prevost! (and docs/staff too :-) RID: 14750

Click to report rating    3/26/09   5     5     4     5   Have dealt with this clinic for over 30 years. Dr. Al Longair, in particular, is a truly wonderful human being -- an excellent Vet, kind, caring, compassionate to animals and owners alike. Can't speak highly enough of him or his staff. RID: 12261

 6/8/08   5     5     4     5   Knowledgeable vets who take the time. They are somewhat tardy in their appointment times however it is because they take time with each person and animal. Dr Longair, Dr Lerche are equally great and Dr Wiren is superior in his surgery. RID: 8742

Click to report rating    2/13/08   3     4     2     5   We see Dr. Longair at this veterinary clinic. He is very thorough and has a gentle and kind manner with our cats. He is exceptionally knowlegable and has a wonderful perspective on health issues. He will not recommend procedures or medications unless he feels confident that it will truly help the animal. He answers questions in the appointment, without rushing you out the door. He also returns phonecalls. This is the best vet I've ever been to; he truly cares about the well-being of his "patients."
