  • 1. BE CAREFUL

    by: cindyberger

    DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE USEING THEM. Check out other review sites and talk with people who have used them. They will transport your animal for surgery to the Palmyra Animal Clinic and then transport it back for your pick up. They are losing pets in transport per disgruntled former employees and all the reviews you will see with your research. Dr. Clements is rude and arrogant. he has screwed up and killed more pets mysteriously then I can even shake a stick at! After surgery, your pet needs a quite safe place to rest. not pulled off oxygen and iv too soon and put into the back of a bumpy truck unmonitored. He also owns Palmyra Animal Clinic and Silver Springs Animal Clinic. With all the horrible reviews and people I have talked with that haven't even put reviews on the internet that are horrified, how can these places still be in business??

    Pros

    none

    Cons

    they need to be out of business

  • 2. Great Clinic

    by: Squoggy

    I have many friends that use this as their vet. They have wonderful things to say about the staff and the facility. If you live in the area and are looking for a good vet check them out. My friends swear by them.

  • 3. never again

    by: ldrittle

    we spent 2 months taking been between colonial park and their palmyra practices. They first told us that he needed a pacemaker, gave him an injection, that almost killed him speeding up his heart. after spending about 1300.00 on him back and forth and over nights, they asked for all the money up front. my husband told them we didn't have it all to pay but would make payments...keep in mind beeno was still under their care. They made us sign forms that if we missed a payment they would send us to the magistrate.. Our dog was slowly dying and they only cared about the money...they bled us for weeks until they figured it out, This was 6 yrs ago. since then we found the best vet..Dr. Minnaugh

    Pros

    it was close to our house

    Cons

    they finally figured out beeno had addison's disease

  • 4. Compassionate Vets

    by: sltroxell

    Dr. Ramos-Rivera is one of several veterinarians on staff at the Colonial Park Animal Clinic. She was the epitome of compassion when we called her on a Sunday am to help with our 13 year old rescued dog. Pepper was in obvious distress and she calmly explained our options while allowing us to make the final decision. It's never an easy decision to put your family pet down, but Dr. Ramos-Rivera made us feel we had made the right choice.\r\nThe office is always immaculate and all of the staff very professional. My only complaint is the amount of wait time we've had on some scheduled appointments. \r\nAll in all, I would and I have recommend Colonial Park Animal Clinic to anyone in the Harrisburg area with pets.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable, friendly staff

    Cons

    Sometimes a wait

  • 7. Disappointed

    by: MLea82

    I took my cats there for the first time and the doctor was very rude to me. The staff didn't seem to know what was going on and asked me several times if I checked in and it wasn't crowded. The doctor was rude and whenever I asked a question his answers were very condescending as if to say that I was asking stupid questions. I don't recommend this vet.

    Pros

    it was clean

    Cons

    didn't receive good service

  • 8. Love it.

    by: shutupnkiissmex

    I have two cats and two dogs. I take all four of them there and am incredibly pleased with their care. Both of my dogs are old and one has a heart condition, but with her treatment, she's living a better life because of this clinic.

    Pros

    all

    Cons

  • 13. Great Vet

    by: Cassandra823

  • 14. Great vet practice!

    by: lkostelec

    Been using this service for many years. The vets show kindness and understanding--our cats really don't like the trip. Vets seem knowledgable and we have always had good results.

    Great vets

    Cons

    High Traffic Area

  • 15. Great Doctor's

    by: cabel

    Our other Vet stated she was allergic to chicken. After coming to this place we found out she just had sesonal allergies. So We have been taking our dogs here ever since.

    Pros

    very knowledgeable and caring staff

    Cons

    sometimes tough to get an appointment

  • 16. Great Harrisburg-area hospital!

    by: MandiK303

    I chose this hospital based on the proximity to my house and because they have a 24hr emergency line. Since losing my 7 yr old JR Terrier a year and a half ago to sudden causes I've always said I would never again have a clinic without this service. \r\nThe vet assistants and front desk staff are very nice and knowledgeable. When I needs my dogs monthly temaril tablet prescription filled I can call @ 9am and it will be done by the end of lunchtime. \r\nThe doc however that I saw here was not very personable and did not have much bedside manner. Before I realized my dog has an allergic skin condition the vet here prescribed me medicine for it, but never explained that it would be an ongoing thing or what exactly he was prescribing. There are just some things that you as a pet owner would like to be told, instead of dragging it out of someone at a later date.\r\nOther than that one experience though...a great clinic!

    Pros

    Friendly front desk staff, quick prescription filling, very clean environment

    Cons

    High volume clinic so the vets themselfs may not be very personable
