  • 1. Best Vets!

    by: YawningDog

    I've been going to Bethel Veterinary Hospital for at least 20 years. Dr Michael Josephs is one of the kindest people I've ever met. With the intention of retiring, a couple years ago he sold the practice to Dr MacNamara, but soon after, Dr Josephs came back as a part-time vet, unable to stay away from the work he loves. Dr Mac is the perfect person to take over the practice: smart, energetic, always willing to learn more, kind, and caring. With the addition of Dr Aubrey Fitch to the practice last year, I know that my rodents will always have the best care available. Dr Fitch is the perfect rodent vet: gentle, caring, kind, always up on the latest practices (and all of this applies to all the vets here). No matter which vet you see at Bethel Veterinary Hospital, you can rest assured that your pet (any kind of pet) will be treated like royalty and will benefit from the combined knowledge of everyone at the practice. The office staff, many of whom have been there ever since I can remember, are the most welcome faces to see when you walk in the door. They're efficient, pleasant, and of course kind and patient and knowledgable. The same goes for all the vet techs, kennel staff, and all the other unsung heroes without whom no veterinary practice could manage. I'm so thankful that Bethel Veterinary Hospital is there whenever I need them.

  • 9. Absolutely the Best!

    by: jansevera

    Dr. Josephs had performed surgery on my dog's dislocated hip when we rescued him from DAWS 2 years ago, and we continue to bring him all the way back there for all his check-ups, etc., because of Dr. Josephs and all the caring staff there. They're the best!

    Pros

    The most caring staff you'll find anywhere.

    Cons

    I drive 10 miles past many others to get there.
