Clinic reviews

4.8 Stars - 04-02-2016 - Michelle

To whom it may concern, I am writing this letter to express my thanks and gratitude regarding Victoria, the nurse at reception when I visited with my guinea pig Ginger on Friday 29th January 2016. In my previous visits I have been impressed with the professionalism shown but on this particular occasion I was especially grateful for the calmness, composure, and care she offered. It was busy that morning and the appointments had started to overrun, however there was not a single presence of panic or stress noted in the practice. Victoria offered to clip Ginger's claws to help ease the build-up of appointments and she was caring and gentle with my fiery piggy. She was also professional and competent while still having to deal with phone calls in the middle of the consultation. I think this had a tremendous effect on the overall atmosphere of the practice and even though there were only two other clients waiting to be seen and with a boisterous big dog also present, it was still relaxing and calm. My full and sincere thanks go to Victoria for making this visit unexpectedly memorable and pleasant with her approach. I also wish to say thank you to the vet who was on duty who was also under pressure but remained calm and professional and also explicitly informed me what type of lump Ginger has and her prognosis, which has slightly eased my long-held worries. Many thanks for being a great veterinary practice that I am proud to be a client of. Yours sincerely, Michelle Sarfo Adu-Aning

Me and my family have been coming to this practice for over 30 years they have always been amazing and the animal is their number one priority. Several of our cats have been rescues we have got from the practice and to hear their stories tells you what wonderful people work at Goddards.

Great staff who go out of their way for you and your pet. Have watched them work on strays for years , fostering and rehoming great numbers of cats. This is one of the reasons so many come to Plaistow branch they care about All animals and assist in resolving some of the many needy cases. Keep up this essential work.

Got an appointment straight away because the cat was sick, we were worried and it was Saturday. The receptionist was friendly, the veterinary surgeon was sympathetic and competent. We couldn\'t have asked for a better service.

After one of our cats had had a bit of a tangle one evening we felt it was important to get down to the vets and have her checked over. The vet we saw was exceptionally helpful, understanding and tackled the problem quickly and effectively.
