What Clients Say
Dr Novick was so sweet and good with me and the dog. Please ignore the bad reviews because he is simply old school compared to what we are used to. He was very friendly and quick in his service. The dog needed its rabies shot and i was worried that it was a little too soon for her but he explained why it’s okay for her to get it now (unlike the other vet who refused to get her the rabies shot and insisted that my dog needed it at 4 months old). He gave us everything we needed, including the certificate, the shot and the rabies tag for he dogs collar. He was very talkative and personal in his appointment. I really enjoyed it. He doesn’t have anyone helping him it’s just him in his office but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. He is so affordable.
I can see why some of the Yelp ratings were hesitant about this clinic because it is a real hole in the wall. However once the vet came out and started working on my cat I instantly relaxed and just felt so grateful that he had been able to agree to take us on short notice. He was not only completely professional, but you can see that he has a genuine love for the animals that he sees. Everything was done by hand, instead of a computer, but it moved faster that way and I can see that he keeps all of his paperwork in order. He treated my cat, issued me medication with a demonstrative instruction on how to adminster it, warnings to follow, and even through in a second smaller dose of ear mite treatment for my dog so that they wouldn't spread ear mites between each other. He was amazing and at a fraction of the cost other clinics were attempting to charge me. I think I've found my cat a regular vet finally!
He's office it's not as modern as other's but he has met my expectations when it comes to my dog's care he's very reliable when it comes to hours and days as to any emergency i might have. Very affordable Vet he won't overcharge you and won't try to do any sort of extra testing unless it's necessary. I can truly say i trust him with my dog and from the moment he sees her he already knows her diagnosis and what's wrong with her and the medications he gives her they always work. Please don't get intimidated by the way he is all i can say is it doesn't bother me and he gives good care to my dog and that's my priority keeping my dog happy and healthy.
The only vet you can really trust in NYC. He is so smart, doesn't upcharge and try to sell you things you don't need, and is FAR more informed than any vet I've been to in NYC. He's my 4th vet in NYC and the only one who I trust, and has consistently been correct in diagnoses. I've gone to park slope vet clinic and the only thing they do there is try to sell you things, they don't even try to see what's happening to your dog. They got so many diagnoses wrong that Call Ahead Vet then got correct. He's funny and smart and a good guy. I get that he comes across as rude on the phone but it's just cause hes matter of fact.
