Clinic reviews

5 Stars - 13-03-2018 - Becky

I registered my puppy and cat with this branch because of the great reviews it had received, and I have not been disappointed! My puppy loves to visit and gets so excited when she walks through the door. My cat, who is nervous by nature, is so much calmer when visiting compared to other vets she has visited in the past. The ease my pets feel when at this practice is down to the knowledgeable and respectful care of Richard and all the nurses. They are so personable and reassuring, which not only puts me at ease, but also my puppy and cat. Thank you for taking such good care of them!

I live 20 miles away from this surgery but I travel there as Richard the vet is the nicest person you could wish to meet. Both Richard and the nursing staff are superb, they are caring, knowledgeable, friendly and very experienced. I currently have 2 dogs which are under Richard and they both go into the surgery with their tails wagging, the staff always make a fuss of them and Richard is brilliant with them, what more could you ask for. I have tried other vets in the past but none come close to the excellent service from this team, they are definitely the best.

If there were “VET” awards Dr. Richard Mark & his team at the Gidea Park location would win in every category! A very special thank you to Dr. Mark and the staff for going above & beyond to help our situation with a positive outcome for all the family members including our beloved doggie. Dr.Richard Mark exceeded our expectations - a huge thank you! Karen

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.
