We would like to thank Richard and all of the staff at Gidea Park for the wonderful care they give to Wil our cat. Over many many years Richard has been our Vet not just for Wil but for 3 much loved persian cats. Richard is obviously a very highly skilled Vet, he explains any problem in such a way that the clent is able to understand. Richard and his team give a faultless service. All are much valued in our area. Sincerely, Mrs Diane C Cook and Mr Gary J Westwood

The care and love that Richard and his team gave my 15 yr old Border Terrier Teddy during his lifetime, is one of the reasons I now take my new BT Hetty. I know that she will receive a proper and thorough examination with the same love and attention that Teddy had. I can't recommend them highly enough.

My dog ( Skye Nair) was previously registered elsewhere and moved to this surgery on the recommendation of a friend who was very happy with the service. I find all the team at the practice extremely professional and courteous.The receptionist and nurse are always happy to see you and make an immediate connection with my dog. Dr Marks deserves special mention as he takes great care to examine my dog very thoroughly.He also ensures that he builds up a good rapport with both the pet and the owner.Whilst discussing all therapeutic options,Dr also involves the pet owner in all decisions regarding the management of the pet which is extremely important and reassuring. I wish Dr Marks and his excellent team all the very best in the great service that they provide in our area.

I rarely write reviews but I felt compelled to do so after a recent appt for my cat, Ethel, with Richard and his team. Ethel is 17 years old and has been going to Goddards Gidea Park all her life. She now has a range of health issues which Richard and his team are investigating thoroughly, with care and compassion. What I believe really sets Richard apart is the fact that I trust him implicitly to put the health and welfare of my cat above anything else. Richard's only focus is on doing what is in Ethel's best interests and it's something, as a owner, I really value and appreciate. It's not often you come across a vet with such skill, knowledge, dedication and commitment to doing what's best for his patients, but Richard does just that. As a vet he gets 10 out of 10 from me and the same goes for his amazing team. Thank you all.

I was a little worried bringing my cat today knowing that the regular vet Richard who has treated him so well was on leave. From the moment I walked in the door today my anxieties were allayed the vet and staff were so kind and friendly and made the process of saying goodbye so much easier. I cannot thank you all enough and am so grateful to the vet for taking the time to come and talk to me afte,it reassured me that I had done the right thing for Rambo.

Vet Response

We are so sorry to hear about Rambo but are glad that the team at Gidea Park were able to make such a sad time a little more bearable for you. It is never easy losing a loved pet and our thoughts are with you.

The level of customer care received at this practice is exceptional to both pets and owners. Richard and his team have looked after my 2 pets for 10 years now and do a brilliant job always providing an honest, caring and professional service.

Richard and his team at Gidea Park Goddard are friendly, extremely approachable and give you helpful advice, this makes it easy to bring Yuuki along as he loves visiting. The puppy class was very helpful with tips and getting Yuuki socialising with other puppies. The team also phoned to let me know the class was on and if we were coming. Yuuki graduated 5th June 2017 he loved every minute. Very happy customer

Our dog Fenn comes first every time...Richard is always very friendly, honest and clear about Fenn's health. All the staff know us and we are always greeted upon arriving and seen promptly. We always recommend Richard & Goddards to all our friends and family it is without a doubt the most caring and honest veterinary clinic with have ever been to.
