Absolutely nothing but the best veterinary care in the Hicksville area. The staff here have always been wonderful to our two pups from day one. I love that this is a family run place. We have been seen by all three doctors and they are all just wonderful.We recently had an emergency with our little guy Walter early in the morning. We walked in at 8am, as I was afraid to take him to an emergency vet. I felt much better having someone who knows us already and who we trust to take a look at him. Dr. Brad Gottlieb was not supposed to be in until 10. We panicked, not wanting our little guy to suffer in pain for two more hours. The staff called the dr and he came in to the office right away to see him. He explained everything he was doing and what he was checking in great detail, making sure we didn\'t panic if we heard him yelping in pain again. He then explained in detail what exactly the problem was and what we need to do about it. They could have charged us a lot more than they did (we were actually expecting it)

Best Vet Hospital

This Hicksville vet hospital is amazing! Both Dr Gottliebs are wonderful and extremely knowledgable. Island Trees Vet takes wonderful care of my dog SYDNEY. The staff is very caring and always courteous. I moved away from Hicksville and still drive over 1 hr to use them. Wouldn\'t go anywhere else.

Just wanted to say what a delight it is to use Island Trees Veterinary Hospital. From the time you walk in,to the time you leave everyone is so helpful and sweet. I've been bringing my dog here for 8 years and it's always a pleasure. The Dr's, front desk staff and techs are all wonderful. Special thanks to Dr.Caren for always making Jeter feel comfortable. They are very caring, thorough and compassionate! If you haven't found a vet you love yet, try them they are awesome!

I have been coming to this animal clinic in Hicksville for over 10 years with my previous cats and current dog. The staff and doctors have been great with all of them. All my experiences with everyone there has been positive and helpful.

Love Dr. Caren & Staff

First impressions are worth everything!! Tracy the receptionist was the first person I spoke with and it was an instant connection when she knew my puppy "Gillies" was named after Clark Gillies from the Islanders!!!

We needed and immediate appointment Gillies was lethargic,face was swollen, and he was very agitated. We had been to our previous vet for the same symptoms and had the not been resolved. Dr. Caren immediately knew he had puppy strangles at first sight. He immediately statrted treatment him. Dr. Caren was thorough,caring, and compassionate. Gillies is now on a road to recovery. I couldn't be more thankful. Wish my own M.D. was this great!!

I love them!

I adopted my dog Otis about a month ago and he's my first pet ever. So this was the first time I went to the vet and I was terrified because I heard some vets try to push you into things to get your money. They did the complete opposite! They advised me on what I should do with my new pet and they were really nice to him. I'm paying for his expenses so not being pushed into things is a relief. Everyone that came in contact with him were really nice and friendly. I trust them 100% and this is only after one visit! They are the go to vet hospital if you ask me :)

Saved my cats life!

When I bought my 9 year old cat Rocco Dr.Gottlieb Sr. saved his life. My cat was being treated by another vet prior to this and was recently diagnosed as diabetic. I took him every 2 weeks to get a blood test by my old vet just kept increasing the insulin. When my cat collapsed I brought him into this Hicksville animal hospital and after an extensive stay he was saved. I am so greatful that Dr.Gottlieb did not give up on him. Thanks so much I am truly grateful. The staff there are the best!

Unsurpassed love and care!

I can't even express how grateful my family and I are for the Staff and Dr. Caren. We have been with these wonderful and caring people for almost 15 years. They truely are the best in what they do, and they treat not only my furbabies but myself as well( because us Moms need care and understanding too in the difficult times.) My pit mix Tuffy loves everyone there and is always happy to get such special love and attention. The staff always makes him feel so special. An absolutely wonderful place filled with special people. Many thanks to them all.

Thank You!!

On 10/25, we had to put our cherished dog, Chelsea, to sleep. She was 14yrs old & suffering from a brain tumor. This was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do.
Dr. Brad's compassion & care in Chelsea's last days went above & beyond. On the day that we put her down, Dr. Gottlieb & Tracy were so sympathetic & did their best to comfort us during such a difficult time. They did not rush us & took the time to explain the process to us.
I have nothing but great things to say about Island Trees Vet Hospital & I have recommended & will continue to recommend them to all of my friends.

Amazing Hospital And Staff!!

I am in utter SHOCK as to read such negative reviews for Island Trees Veterinary Clinic! I am here to change this IMMEDIATELY!!!! First off my name is Dara and my beautiful puppy is Bella. My first experience with this office was AMAZING from the greeting at the door by Sue at the receptionist desk to filling out paperwork, and not even a 10 minute wait to be seen and be examined by the most phenomenal Dr. I was so scared and nervous because Bella is my little Fur-Baby and a member of my family. This was her first surgery having being spayed and it was traumatic for a new mommy (Me), not knowing what to expect. If it wasn’t for Sue and Tracy, I would have been a total wreck leaving Bella for the overnight surgery. Sue and Tracy were so sympathetic and caring and put my heart and Bella at ease. Their prices are VERY reasonable and everything was explained IN DETAIL before anything was done and/or charged. I am actually going back to get Bella micro chipped when she heals. While waiting for Bella to go in, we all started to talk and not only has Sue expressed she has a dog of her own, but she made me and the other patients in the waiting room feel like family where every fur-baby was treated like her own. She was very intuitive to my needs and that is very important in selecting my new forever doctor at Island Trees. This veterinary office is like NO OTHER I’ve ever seen before. I can\'t say enough great things. When the Doctor first met me, he had a great personality, and his sense of compassion for the animals was seen immediately. He held Bella on the table and did a thorough evaluation on her including range of motion, checked her gums, ears, you name it, it was checked. (Tell me what animal sits still and not wants to run for the door). Bella sat still and loved the Dr as well as the vet technicians. Bella gave a little trouble getting on the scale but hey….what girl wants to get on a scale right??, What a great office with such professionalism that they come highly recommended by me and all of my neighbors who have furry family members. Bella has another appointment in two weeks and she is already springing back to her normal self. I actually have Bella’s sister and neighbor making an appointment to switch to this hospital as well. I cannot thank the Dr, Sue and Tracy, for not only being the BEST office, but for making me feel so comfortable to want to spread the word and the love for all animals by bringing them to Island Trees Veterinary hospital. You made a worried and nervous mom, feel safe bringing her little one to be cared for and seen immediately. If ANYONE has any questions or concerns that I can assist in any way shape or form, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can go on and on with wonderful reviews about this office. On the way out from this last appointment, I had also had the pleasure of meeting other parents such as myself who I had made friends with, so one day we can all have puppy play dates. That’s how close and like family we all were there. If there were 10 STARS to give this office I would!!!!!
