  • 1. Terrible Vet

    by: stubsspindle

    My dog broke his leg and I took him to Chestatee to get the cast put on. When I brought him home, He had terrible wounds on his foot so I rushed him back. They told me they "didn't see the wounds" that why they didn't tell me about them. It worried me so I tried to talk to the doctor but he wouldn't get on the phone with me until I started talking about a lawyer. When I saw the xrays, I knew something was wrong so I asked to be referred to another vet. The bone pieces were not even touching. The Doctor told me that he should be fine. Once I got to a different vet, he removed the cast and my poor puppy had bandage wounds all up his leg that Chestatee "didn't see" or tell me about. Thanks to the new vet, my dog can walk. Thank god I knew something wasn't right.

    Pros

    The office is vert nice and clean

    Cons

    They messed up and did not tell me about it

  • 2. Cure for Blindness?

    by: Rummyangel

    I recently adopted a kitten from lumpkin county shelter and brought it to Dr. Ortin because he is going blind. Unfortunately, as I feared, there is no direct cure for my kittens eyes. There are many tests but nothing can promise anything. What I liked the most about this vet is that he did not try to sell me any cheap answer, he told me straight out what I was dealing with and that if I take no action I may have to have his eyes removed. Dr. Ortin is a very good vet.

    Pros

    The wait was relatively short

    Cons

    Lots of construction around the place.
