Thank you Dr. Caren

I want to thank Dr. Caren for giving me almost 2 years more with my dog, Jay- Jay. He saved his life after a splenectomy. For me, Jay-Jay was the once in a lifetime friend that will never be replaced. Dr. Caren took amazing care of him to the end. Always listened to what I had to say about how Jay - Jay was feeling and acting to diagnose him. I always trusted his diagnosis. I can't say enough about the care he received throughout his 12 years. Thank you again Dr. Caren. The Meyers Family.

Excellent Caring Vet

I felt I had to give a shout out to Dr. Jay Gottlieb and all the staff at Island Trees Veterinary Hospital in Hicksville for the excellent care they provided to my dog. I brought my dog in late one night for what I thought was an eye infection. It turned out to be a very serious case of glaucoma. Dr. Jay diagnosed it quickly and set me up with a proper treatment plan. He and the staff kept the office open late for us, answered all our questions and didn't try to push expensive tests on us or rush us out the door. He was caring and patient and called to follow up twice over the next two weeks to check and see how my dog was doing. Truly a caring vet.

Island Trees Veterinary Hospital

We brought my 17 year old wonderful dog, who was suffering, for a consultation. Dr. G was so kind and patient with us making a decision about what to do. We could not have asked for a "better" experience considering how difficult this was for us!! We will always be grateful to Dr. G. What a wonderful staff and facility.

Thank you

We have been using Island Trees for 10 years with our 6 dogs and 2 cats .
Our Rosie who is very well known by everyone in the office, we call her our million dollar baby. We have since sadly said goodbye to our Neco, Lucky and the Brat, everyone was so kind during our grief. We have a new puppy, a English Lab named Tank, and everyone already loves him, especially Dr. Gottlieb. We wouldn't trust anyone else with our fur babies.
Thank you Dr. Gottlieb, Dr. Caren and Tracey and staff for always taking good care of our babies ❤️


I highly recommend the Island Trees Veterinary Hospital! Tracey was a welcoming sense of humor and knowledge during a visit with our dog. The staff is patient and takes the time to explain options for each of our concerns. Wonderful in every aspect.

My family has been taking our dogs to Island Trees Veterinary Hospital since I was a kid. I have since been taking my own family dogs here as well. The care they provide is second to none and they are very flexible in getting you in to see them when you need them most. I would highly recommend ITVH to anyone who is looking for a quality veterinary experience that is staffed by caring people.

I have been taking my pets to Dr Gottlieb at Island Trees Veterinary Hospital for over 20 years. I am a nervous nelly with my pets and Dr Gottlieb puts me at ease and has always done the right thing with treating my dogs. He gives me all my options and never jumps into surgery or any unnecessary procedure. In fact, he suggests we try medications first and gives wounds or growths a little bit of time to heal with caution. He has always been so accurate with his diagnosis. He calls me back the same day and spends time to explain all options to me. He never is quick to do unnecessary treatment or surgery. I would highly recommend Island Trees Veterinary Hospital in Hicksville and their prices are very fair!!!! If u love ur pets make sure they get the best care and take them to Island Trees. Dr Caren is excellent too!


My Olde English Bulldog had possibly eaten a foreign body. I brought her to Island Trees Veterinary Hospital for an exam. The reception staff was friendly and very understanding. They took my dog in immediately. Dr. Gottlieb was very knowledgeable and examined her. After an X-ray he felt that the best thing for her was surgery. Thank goodness for him. He saved my dog from any further damage. He also saved me from incurring major expenses from an emergency facility. Dr. Gottlieb even came in on Sunday to check my dog and waited for me to come and pick her up. As a pet lover who has been to many vets, I finally found one who is caring for my animals and their owners. Thank you Dr. Gottlieb and all the staff at Island Trees Veterinary Hospital in Hicksville for their unbelievable service!!!!

Another wonderful experience at Island Trees Veterinary Hospital in Hicksville. My dog Chase,who was very difficult to handle and cared for very well for 14 years at Island Trees, passed away in February. Our family was so very sad we went to North Shore and adopted a puppy the end of February. With the help and good advice of Dr. Carin and Dr. Gottlieb the adjustment went smooth. These devoted doctors and their caring staff are always available to any need. We so loved our Dog, Chase, but she was very temperamental and could be nasty, we are so grateful to all at Island Trees for the great care they gave Chase. It is not often that you meet such a marvelous staff. Thank You,


We have a rare breed of dog called a Alaskan Klee Kia and wanted to make sure she received the best care possible that's why we made it our business to take her to see Dr. Carin. He was compassionate and wanting to make sure my Klee Kia would not have any adverse reactions to her injections Dr. Carin spaced them out over several weeks to make sure she would be fine. Ive had dogs all my life and I have never seen any veterinarian take this approach and I couldn't be happier. Island Trees Veterinary Hospital, you have a customer for life
