We moved to Boston a few months ago and needed to find a new vet for our dog. We chose South Boston Animal Hospital based on reviews. We were not happy about our visit and will NEVER go back. First of all, the wait time in the lobby was ridiculous. We were on time for our appointment, yet we had to wait over 1 hour to see the vet. We would have left at this point (probably should have) but needed to get our dog vaccinated. Finally when we were seen, the vet did a quick exam, didn't really answer any of our questions, and then focused the majority of the time on selling us some expensive dental dog food. She went so far as to compare our dog's current food to "eating out of a trash can" (our breeder as well as our previous vet were the ones who recommended the food - saying that it was a good quality and inexpensive choice). We found this vet to be really unprofessional and not knowledgable when answering our questions. Seriously, google did a better job answering our questions. To add to the sense that this Vet's primary interest is in making money , we just received a post card in the mail with a reminder that it's time for our dog's 1st grooming appointment. Did they miss the fact that our dog has short hair and doesn't shed? The only good thing we have to say about this vet is the office staff. They were friendly, professional, and helpful.
We LOVE Dr. Waggner!
Although a small practice and very heard to find parking nearby, the skill and lovely personality of Dr. Waggner DVM make this a great place to go for vet appointments! It is also very affordable in comparison to other local place we have been to.
