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.

I have been very happy with all aspects of the customer service and treatment at Goddards. I have been treated with kindness and respect throughout my cat's visits and treatments and my cat has been well looked after. I have been particularly happy with the honesty and familiarity that Richard and all of the nurses put across. Thank you so much for all of your support, professionalism, expertise and heart.

Once again Richard and the superb nurses (Dawn, Amy, Janice) have come to my rescue and helped one of my dogs at short notice. They are almost like family I seem to be in there so often, always friendly, helpful and caring towards my pets and me! Thank you all so much for always being so helpful and giving outstanding service!!

When we moved to Hornchurch 2 years ago we decided to continue our vet care at Goddards and I am so glad we did. The veterinary nurses are really friendly and welcoming and make you feel at ease as soon as you walk in. You can see they love their jobs. Richard is so caring and explains everything. You can tell he is very passionate about his work and enjoys dealing with people too which he does in a most friendly and professional manner. It is also very reassuring to know Richard is always there rather than seeing different vets every time...please don't ever leave! Our cat Tootsie who is quite a nervous cat enjoyed her course of acupuncture with Richard and even she was relaxed. Thank you to everyone

Registered our new kitten at this surgery, was met at reception and welcomed. The lady who booked us in over the phone when making the appointment was very nice! Richard is fantastic, very knowledgable and seems to really care for the animals that visit him. Could not recommend this practice enough.

Goddard's vets in gidea park are great, my dog has recently been spayed and I was really happy with how the operation was done with no need for a cone collar to be worn and she recovered really quickly. The vet and nurses are all very kind caring and professional, they make sure I have all the information needed for my dog to continue with good health. I would not hesitate in recommending them to others.

I'm new to Gidea Park Practice and the thing that struck me on the first visit was that I've never seen a waiting room at a Veterinary Clinic full of such stress free animals. They seemed genuinely happy to be there! After several visits with my two special breed kittens, they also happily climb into the carrier when it's time to visit. Says everything you need to know about how Richard and his staff care for them. From a human perspective, Richard takes time to explain exactly what treatment he intends to do, why and what to expect afterwards. He involves you and talks with you, not at you.The staff are equally warm, friendly and very efficient in covering every aspect of the necessary treatment, at the same time offering up various pieces of advice & tips. Great combination of highly skilled Practice in a family feel setting. Thanks to everyone there!
