Latest Positive Review: I cannot say enough about Dr Hodges and his crew. ...
12/24/2020 4:41 AM
I cannot say enough about Dr Hodges and his crew. They take care of my three cats (one elderly and ill) and one dog with love and compassion. They always make time for us and take time with us. The ladies (and sometimes gentlemen) in the office and those who work as techs are always considerate, compassionate, and kind. Been to a lot of vets over the years, but this one is a cut — or ten — above all of the others.

11/24/2020 4:51 PM
We love everything! What I love most though is that the doctors take the time to contact the families with updates as needed. I loved hearing from the person treating my buddy.

Hi I’ve had a few visits with my new rescue dog. Everyone is wonderful. Love the doctors and staff. Friendly and efficient. I haven’t waited more than five minutes anytime I’ve been in. The office is beautifully clean and not dated.

7/24/2020 3:41 PM
Staff and Vet very friendly. I hate not being able to go in with my Pup. It hurts my heart. Coming from a family of physicians, we temperature screen, mask up and see patients. I wish you did. I do understand Covid concerns but would like to be with my pup

The staff at Lake Crest is always friendly and helpful! My lab recently got his first teeth cleaning, and we had a wonderful experience. Lake Crest provides compassionate, top-notch care, even amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The hours for Sunday were shortened due to COVID-19, but the email still listed regular hours. We arrived with our pets on a Sunday, and the facility was closed. We sent a message, the message was answered in a timely fashion, and one of the great veterinarians met us one hour later and checked our pets in on Sunday early evening. Great customer service!

Even during a social crisis Lake Crest Animal Clinic continues to offer impecable service to their patients and their family. COVID-19 has caused great impact to every area of life but we were treated timely, courteously, and Toby had just as great of a surgery experience as could be expected. As always a wonderful experience.

I dropped Gretta off for a bath and to have her paw checked out. Even under the unusual circumstances the staff was very helpful and accommodating...I could get used to the curbside service:) Gretta is all nice and clean and Dr. Hodges prescribed some medication to help with her paw. It was a great experience and I am happy with the care and service you provide:)

The clinic and staff are great. They are still seeing patients in the mist of the Covid 19 outbreak.
4/15/2020 6:36 AM
We love the procedures you are using to keep everyone safe and healthy during this time. We thought it would be sad to hand them over and not be with them during their exam. However, we trust your staff and know they love our babies. We knew they were in good hands!
4/15/2020 12:58 AM
I was nervous to bring my great dane, Piper, in for a bath during the COVID outbreak because I was worried that the staff would have difficulty getting her in and out of the clinic on a slip lead. I pulled right up to the door and they easily led Piper to and from the car, which put my mind at ease. It was even easier than usual, and I kind of wish curbside service were always an option :) Thanks for going above and beyond to take care of my pup during this difficult time.
4/14/2020 8:15 PM
Good service nice bath and nail service
4/11/2020 3:22 PM
So appreciative of the quality of care and willingness of the vet team to do research and reach out to other vet professionals when warranted. I also appreciate being included in deciding treatment plans. It brings a lot of peace of mind knowing that my all my pets, but especially those with special needs, are getting the care they need.

Everyone at Lake Crest is always so caring with my pets, especially Sammy who is in kidney failure. You work me in, immediately, when Sammy was prancing like a kitten at bedtime but wakes like an old man the next morning. He is enjoying his twilight years thanks to y'all. I am forever grateful for your caring staff!

2/25/2020 5:22 PM
When I dropped off my dog for a dental cleaning, they did some checking & Dr Sara called me regarding other issues he was having. I was very thankful for her to call and suggest other treatments rather than doing something dangerous like cleaning his teeth. She explained his new diagnosis and treatment very well.
2/23/2020 5:26 PM
All of the staff was very friendly & kind. Smiles everywhere and very concerned about the pets safety.
2/22/2020 10:48 PM
The Dr.’s and staff at Lakecrest are the best.
Everyone there goes above and beyond to take the best care of my pets and to make me feel good about their care. From the staff at the front desk, to the techs and assistants to the Dr.’s, they all know my pets and their particular circumstances and give me complete confidence in the care they are getting.

2/20/2020 3:28 PM
Friendly, & knowledgeable staff I can communicate with that really likes their jobs. The staff was very helpful taking my fur babies to the car, they aren’t always very cooperative getting in the car. I would like to thank the staff for everything, & making me feel comfortable leaving my babies in their care.
2/20/2020 3:18 PM

Everyone at Lake Crest Animal Clnic is wonderful. The staff know me by name and know my dogs. All the vets are warm and truly care about the welfare of the animals they care for.

We love Dr Hodges. Years ago we got a puppy from a breeder. It ended up having a liver shunt which he found. His compassion we will never forget. We got another dog he has taken care of and a shelter dog from 2x2 Rescue which he took care of also. We drive 159 miles to come back to Lakecrest. We love the place.

I love the fact that everyone at Lake Crest knows our dogs by name and seems to genuinely like them and care about them. Without a date a doubt, Lake Crest has the best pet and owner relationships of any practice we've ever used. I've had dogs all of my life and I can honestly say "You guys are the best!"
If I start having medical problems of my own, I'm probably going to come to you guys for treatment!!
