A friend recommended Doc Side vets when
my dog started limping. I had been to other vets but didn't really feel comfortable. I'm so glad that I followed her advice.
Sadly, my dog was diagnosed with bone cancer. Dr. Klimentidis was so kind in breaking the news to me. She talked with me on the phone for hours from her home over the weekend after diagnosis. With all the decisions I had to make, she assured me that she would help me with any decision I chose to make, and that she would not let me make a bad decision. It was such a relief to know that whatever I chose to do, she would help.
In the next week, Dr. Klimentidis arranged surgery for my dog at a time that was convenient to my schedule. She consulted with other doctors nationwide to be sure that her diagnosis and treatment were the best. I chose not to do chemo (the data doesn't really support it) and even though most dogs only live about 6 months after diagnosis, he is alive and kicking 8 months after. He pulls me around the neighborhood and even into Doc Side medical center. He loves everyone there and has no bad memories or nervousness about going to the docs.
Thank you Doc Side for giving us the loving and effective care that my dog...and I...needed!
DO NOT TAKE YOUR PET HERE- THEY WILL KILL HIM/HER! My two cats, brothers, were mis-diagnosed and because of that I lost my Sammy (properly diagnosed at Metropolitan Cat Hospital in Owings Mills, MD) in November due to chronic fluids in the lungs which caused cardiac arrest, and renal failure in my Magic ( properly diagnosed at Companion Animal Hospital, Phoenix, MD); I was told that if both of my cats had been properly diagnosed earlier their prognosis would not have been so acutely fatal. I PAID TWICE AS MUCH MONEY TO THIS VET AS I DID/AM AT THE TWO other abovementioned vets and now because of said incompetence, I am losing my second baby, Magic. ALSO, after taking Sammy frequently, every couple weeks his last few months, the doctor never called to follow up to see if he was okay? She obviously is apathetic and didn't even care STILL to find if he is alive....the same re: Magic. A vet should love animals and be knowledgeable in caring for animals- Dr. Klimentidus-Docside- lacks aforementioned. I am crying.....If you want to save your pets' lives, and pay less in doing so- go to Companion Animal Hospital or Metropolitan Cat Hospital (both are Veterinarians and Pet ER)-Please!
