If I could give them zero stars, I would. They made my pet go through unnecessary pain and stress. Paid close to $300 for nothing. Their lack of professionalism and empathy for others is outrageous. Will never go back there.

I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Fried at the Riverdale Veterinary Group a week prior for a 1/2/15 appointment at 4:00pm. Today 12/30/14 I received a call from someone in his group saying that Dr. Fried would not be there due to a change in his schedule, that I should call back to reschedule for an earlier time that day. When I called to reschedule for an earlier time, the guy I spoke to said that he could give me a 1:00pm appointment because the dr. has a 1:15pm appointment already booked, and his last appointment is at 1:30pm that day. Really, my appointment was for two dogs, was the dr. only going to grant me 71/2 minuets for each dog. I am not looking for a vet that basis his practice and work ethic on seeing his clients dogs as if it were an assembly line with a window of 5 to 7 minuets upon which to complete the work. We the clients Dr. Fried, want the best possible care for our animals and the attention they deserve, and we the owners are paying for. So even before setting my foot in the door, I know that this Riverdale Veterinary Group is not the sort of place were my dogs would receive the care and attention they deserve and we the owners would hope to get for them. Dr. Fried try opening a fast food joint.
An overall generally bad feeling even before I set foot in the door.

These haters are tripping-- this is one of the best practices in New York. Dr Palmieri takes care of animals with as much love and care as if they were her own. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
