They Love Us
The doctors, technicians and reception staff are all genuinely friendly and accommodating. They are so patient and concerned when a pet is uneasy and scared.
This place (Heritage Oaks) is amazing, they are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, they took the time to answer all of my questions and didn't rush me. They got 2 of my pups in last week! The new place is beautiful as well! I'm very happy I found them and will now use them from now on!!!
Best veterinary clinic in San Antonio. My bird was handled gently and with care. The entire staff was friendly and helpful.
In my opinion Northern Oaks is the best. The doctors have cared for so many of my pets that I would not take them anywhere else.
A HUGE thank you goes to Dr. Martinez and the fast-acting staff that saved Daphne’s life!! Thanks to you, Daphne gets to return to her adorable, hilarious, Boston self. Definitely recommend!!!!
They have been taking care of my furry kids for the last five years. Everyone there is awesome.
I am so comfortable with Dr. Byrd's care of my four legged family members. She is so up-to-date on veterinary knowledge.
Everyone at this practice is very patient kind and knowledgeable.
Outstanding service. Very caring for any pet taken there. We have used them for many years.
Staff has always been helpful and we get timely reminders of upcoming appointment needs.
