Pet Parent Testimonials

"Kara did the best job she's ever done with Tucker this week! He looks fantastic! She is so good with him. Kind, loving, and sweet, and she takes feedback seriously. Best hair cut he's ever had!"
–Whitney, 8/10/18

"BooBoo and Buffy had their first visit today. The vet and staff were thoughtful, thorough, and kind. They saw [to it] that my fur babies and I were treated well. We left knowing they will always receive excellent medical care!"
–Barbara, 8/6/18

"They care with their heart about every animal."
–Sarah, 7/17/18

"Paloma is currently snoring at my feet asleep...finally chill again. I wouldn’t trust most vets with my pet rock. I trust AHBC with my baby because you again and again prove to amaze me. Y'all are forever the best!"
–Kelly, 7/14/18

"My husband and I have been taking our senior rescue dog, Rosie, to AHBC for about 2 years. We never feel rushed during visits. We’ve needed a couple of urgent/emergency visits, and AHBC has accommodated us every time, so much so that Dr. Goetz gave me her mobile number, and we were texting after hours about how best to care for Rosie! We find the prices reasonable and well worth the quality of care Rosie receives."
–Monica, 7/7/18

"My dog needed emergency surgery because he swallowed a golf ball. I took him there around 5 p.m. They close at 5:30. [Dr. Goetz] did the surgery anyway, and everyone who worked there stayed past 8:30. Not only were all the staff great, the veterinarian during the surgery found something else wrong with my dog that could have eventually killed him. She fixed that as well, and I still didn't pay the amount of the full estimate they previously gave me. Everything was very fair price, staff was great, and they have complimentary drinks and snacks while you're waiting."
–Will, 5/19/18

"Always the best experience for my cats. Dr. Goetz is so good with them, and so are the nurses and techs. They are fast, efficient, and usually on time. Love coming here."
–Melissa, 4/6/18

“I have been taking my dog, Honey, to Animal Hospital at Brier Creek since we got her in 2007. Wow...11 years! It was a choice of convenience back then because we lived in Brier Creek. But we haven’t stopped going, even when we moved to Durham many years ago. It’s worth the 25-minute drive to know Honey is in good hands and cared about!”
–Megan, 2/26/18

“We've been taking our dog, Owen, here for a little over a year. Great staff: friendly and honest. Definitely recommend!”
–Steven, 2/20/18

“I have been taking my dog, Kirby, to Animal Hospital at Brier Creek since they opened. I can't say enough good things about them. Kirby has terrible skin issues. Dr. Goetz worked with me until we found a medication that works. Kirby is now 10 years old and doing great, thanks to Dr. Goetz. The staff are all very caring, professional, and attentive to our needs. I know Kirby gets the best quality of care.”
–Brenda, 2/6/18

“Great staff. They've cared for my rescue dog for the past 7 years. Responsible, caring.”
–Thomas, 1/31/18

“My son owned a beautiful pit bull named Blue. My son was killed in a car accident this past September. Blue went to live with his wonderful mom, Allison. The other day Blue was shot, and Allison took him to Animal Hospital at Brier Creek. You can see his story on their Facebook page. Although I haven't met them, I can tell they love their fur baby patients. They have been absolutely wonderful with Blue. In my opinion, they are angels. Thank you to each and every one of you for helping to take care of Blue. He is so very special.”
–Cindy, 12/21/17

"Blue is doing a lot better! I can't tell y'all how much pain it would have caused me to lose him. The fact that everyone was willing to be there for him means the world to me. I love you guys!"
–Allison, 12/19/17

“I was very pleased with the staff at AHBC. I'm new here and looking for a vet for my dog. Everyone was kind and friendly to me and my pet. I would recommend Animal Hospital at Brier Creek to anyone new in town looking for a vet.”
–Terri, 12/15/17

“Went today to get Mikie rechecked on his intervertebral disk disease and chronic arthritis. The medicine Dr. Goetz has given him is working. Dr. Goetz has taken care of all our dogs over the years. We would not take him anywhere else, even though we live now in Knightdale.”
–Diane, 11/25/17

“Dr. Goetz and her staff are fantastic! You and your pets will be treated like family!”
–Heather, 11/29/17

“Staff was friendly and attentive. Really care about your family pet. Great job!”
–Patricia, 11/21/17

“The entire staff are welcoming and kind. My cat is having issues with swollen paws. The vets and nurses all treat him like one of their own fur kids! They have flexible scheduling and talk me through their thought-process and treatment options. AHBC will be a part of my fur kid’s family for life!”
–Tara, 11/21/17

“I am new to the area and just adopted a senior cat. I saw the great reviews online for Animal Hospital of Brier Creek. It definitely lived up to my expectations! Everyone was so kind, and I really appreciated how they tried to make everything financially feasible.”
–Lauren, 11/18/17

“I’m new to the area. This clinic got rave reviews and has exceeded my high expectations. They take great care of T-Bone. It’s clear they truly care about their patients. Yes, even the cats! (My dog made me type that.)”
–Charles, 10/31/17

“The staff are very professional and experienced. They were very kind during our cat’s annual visit. Most pets don’t like these visits, but they really go out of their way to make them as comfortable as possible. Thanks!”
–Sarah, 10/24/17

“Very kind staff and true animal lovers who care for your fur friend like it's one of their own. Marley loves going to the vet for extra treats and petting. Easy and flexible appointment times for a busy schedule as well!”
–Marissa, 10/4/17

“We love the staff here! Everyone is so nice and attentive and thorough with my fur baby! They never mind answering all my questions, and are responsive to my electronic messages pretty quickly as well!”
–Barbara, 7/1/17

“I'm still new to AHBC, but the staff are great and very attentive to the dogs and the parents, from the minute I walk in to the minute I walk out. It's clear they love what they do! Also had an excellent experience with my boy getting groomed—he looked so handsome when I picked him up!
–Karen, 6/28/17

“We love Dr. Goetz and Animal Hospital at Brier Creek! Jennifer Goetz has been our vet for over 16 years. She has cared for our fur babies with love and concern. P.S. Thank you for taking such excellent care of Gracie.”
–Betsy, 3/4/17

“After visiting some five veterinary facilities, finally found one that actually has a play-space for kids and staff who personally interact with them, so that they never felt unimportant throughout our visit. What a relief! The entire facility is very clean, with equally friendly staff! Very welcoming experience throughout, with all our concerns explained! Highly recommend!”
–Anju, 3/3/17

"Dr. Goetz is the most thorough and attentive doctor I have ever known. Last year she accurately diagnosed my rescue Japanese Chin with a terrible yeast infection: an important issue, which made him stink and which two other doctors had missed. I can tell how much she genuinely cares ABOUT my babies every time she cares FOR them. She really loves them, and they really love her right back. And so do I! Thank you, Dr. Goetz, for only hiring nice people to work for you, and, most of all, just for being you!"
–Chuck, 9/13/16

“Everybody there is so helpful and friendly. They really treat everybody like family.”
–Lisa, 11/10/15

“What can I say about this place: Vets, nurses, and staff are all awesome! I have been taking my dog, Kirby, there for over a year. They have done wellness check-ups and handled incidents of illness and injury for him. Scheduled appointments or emergency: They have been capable of accommodating. Many thanks!!!”
–Daniel, 9/19/15

“Love them!!! They did a great job on Shadow's first visit there.”
–Marquita, 6/10/15

“Dr. Goetz and her staff are absolutely amazing. They go above and beyond to make sure your pet is cared for in a way that is second to none. Dr. Goetz performed multiple surgeries on my rescue Shih Tzu, Teddy. I received phone calls from her and her staff on the days following his surgeries to make sure he was doing OK and adjusting to his new home with me. Dr. Goetz gave me her home phone number in case of emergency. Of all the vets I have ever known, none has ever done this for me. Her staff are all amazing! They are kind, professional, and spend time with you to explain everything that has been done and everything you need to do as follow-up. Her hours are very flexible to allow for working parents.”
–Kay, 12/29/14

“Best place ever. Thank you everyone for the love and care you gave Cameron.”
–Mary, 11/25/14

“Excellent! Took the best care of my Bruce after he was hit by a car. Friendly and professional! Thanks for everything!”
–Andrea, 11/9/14

“The staff are amazing and go over and beyond. They keep my budget in mind. They are familiar with experts on specific conditions and current research. Above all, the customer service and love they provide my four-legged family are exceptional. They always check in and follow up. I wish all doctors did this. Wonderful team there. Thank you for all that you do.”
–Tina, 10/1/14

“Great staff, and do all they can with my budget in mind!”
–Cherie, 8/20/14
