I have total respect for Richard. After changing vets recently he diagnosed something that was wrong with the family dog just by watching her walk into the examination room! After using the same vets for over 10 years, we had thought she had received the best treatment however, we now question whether their practice was about the best care for our dog or the financial ward. It is obvious that Richard cares about the animals - our lovely placid labarador does not take to men so we were prepared for her growl when we walked in however, Richard spoke to her in a soft calm tone and she was putty in his hands! That was a first for her. He has changed her medication and she has gone from being a dog who slept all day and had no energy (due to the pain killers prescribed by our old vet) to a dog who is bright eyed and happy - and that was only after 1 week. Richard is amazing at what he does and we only regret that we did not transfer sooner.

Richard at Goddards in Gidea Park performed emergency surgery on our standard poodle Blue. It was 50/50 whether he came through the op. Thanks to all at the practice Blue is now fully recovered. Who needs Supervet.

Richard and the team are simply brilliant. I got a Schnoodle pup and am just so lucky to have them on my doorstep. Every member of staff is so kind and absolutely goes the extra mile, I cannot recommend them enough. The free puppy check ups and Emily's puppy parties are great: I knew my pup was getting the best possible care and was well socialised and I was getting the best advice. When she hurt her leg playing in the garden Janice was so kind and understanding (it happened out of hours) and whenever Matilda (the pup) went in for check ups or to have stitches out, Richard knew exactly what the vet hospital had done and was able to answer any questions, and again was very reassuring. She's recently now been spayed by Richard. It all went well and even though I was in pieces and needed a lot of extra time to reach the decision to have her spayed now, Richard and the nurses answered all of my questions and were extremely patient and reassuring. They also called the next day after the op to make sure Matilda was recovering well. Matilda's happy as anything and doesn't mind going there as she associates it with puppy parties and lovely people, as do I. I would have everyone I know who owns a pet use this vet's practice, they're just such nice genuine people who really really love animals and take the time to get to know each pet and owner.

My dog has heart problem, yesterday, he suddenly deteriorated to such an extent where I thought we had had our last walk! We rang the surgery and although they were very busy, without hesitation they said bring him here ASAP. After consultation with Richard he was admitted. We collected him later that evening, the improvement in him was bordering miraculous, this was without doubt due to the knowledge, skill, and care of Richard and his staff. No one knows how many walks he has left, but thanks to Richard and his staff, at the time of writing he has had two more and counting! ,
