Reviews from some of Dr. Shervin’s clients

“Our dog Juno has been going to Shervin since she was 2 months old, she's 4 now. In that time Shervin and team have consistently demonstrated professional, knowledgeable care with lots of compassion. They genuinely care about our dogs' best interest. We feel very fortunate to be able to have that trust.” 

“Great Veterinarian in the St Clair East area who knows his stuff and really works with the clients to ensure they understand what is going on with their family members. He helped greatly with all of my furry family members over the years. The staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you all!”

“Dr. Shervin and his staff are so amazing. If I'm being honest, it makes me a bit emotional to think about it. They truly care about my pets. My family and I can tell they deeply care for them and they prioritize their well-being over anything. They are always so loving, patient and gentle with them, I'm honestly so touched. Dr. Shervin is legitimately THE best. If you're looking for an awesome human being AND a great vet, look no further.”

Reviews from some of Dr. Hahn’s clients

“I have had nothing but top notch service from Dr. Hahn, the other vets, and the staff at Hurontario Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Hahn is smart, thorough, and offers practical advice. Dr. Hahn and all the staff have been attentive and caring and provided excellent care.”

“Dr. Hahn is incredibly knowledgeable and has given fantastic care to our pets (cat and Rottweiler) over the years. I highly recommend her practice to anyone seeking the best care for their animals.”

“Dr. Hahn and ALL the staff are by far the best in the city! Growing up Dr. Hahn cared for my dogs for their whole life span. Now I have two dogs and a cat; I tried several other vets because they were closer to where I live but I was never satisfied with the service I received. I now drive half an hour to Hurontario Veterinary Hospital because they truly are the best. I always walk away with peace of mind knowing my pets are getting the best care possible. Dr. Hahn's knowledge and experience surpasses that of any other vet I have encountered.  I HIGHLY recommend this clinic.”

Reviews from some of Dr. Dilworth’s clients

“Dr. Mark Dilworth, a marvelous vet and so kind. We have had many beloved pets over the years, and for the last 35 plus years, most of our veterinary care experience has been with Beaches Animal Hospital. The patient medical care is consistently superb, the staff across the clinic are kind, understanding and knowledgable, and their loving support is very welcomed when the inevitable happens, and a pet passes.”

“Dr. Dilworth and his wonderful colleagues at Beach Animal Hospital looked after our dog for her entire life, from the day we adopted her. They provided excellent veterinary services, wise referrals when necessary and thoughtful, compassionate care throughout. We would highly recommend them to anyone!”

“Words simply cannot express how grateful we are to Beaches Animal Hospital and Dr. Dilworth for their incredible compassion, urgency, and expertise. We recently received the tragic diagnosis that our sweet 4.5 year old dog, Garth, had hemangiosarcoma - a vicious and, in his case, inoperable cancer. We were able to spend 2 blissful days with Garth before he passed on December 30th, 2022, all thanks to the team at Beaches. If they didn’t accept our emergency same day appointment, it is unlikely we would have had any time with Garth at all. Dr. Arnaudov was so incredibly thorough, and he was extremely quick to make many emergency phone calls on our behalf to progress Garth’s care as he was in unstable condition. A day later I received a personal phone call from Dr. Dilworth expressing his concern over Garth’s case and offered many kind words. A few days later, when Garth passed, we were sent a beautiful condolences email from Dr. Dilworth that we appreciated so much.”

“Dr. Littlejohn and crew are the best. Always get my pet in quickly and they all treat her great.

Been a customer for at least 25 years and have nothing but huge praise for Dr. Littlejohn. He is the best around.”

Reviews from some of Dr. Surette’s clients

“ Dr. Justin Surette is absolutely amazing at what he does! He is so informative and always goes above and beyond every time I bring my puppy! I am a first time dog owner and I am so happy that he is my puppy's vet. It is obvious that he cares and has passion for what he does! The administrative staff are always so responsive and professional”

“Best Vet in all of Vaughan!!! Dr. Justin Surette sees both my dogs and is the most compassionate and caring vet I have been to! Steeler and James are my third and fourth dogs in 25 years and I have been through 4 vets before finding North Woodbridge Veterinary Hospital. The front desk staff is friendly, efficient and alway helpful! Dr. Surette always takes the time to explain results and is never pushy with any unnecessary medications or procedures that I don't feel comfortable with. He always listens to any concerns I have and never rushes me out the door. He is clearly passionate about his job and loves all his patients! I will always bring my dogs to his clinic!”

“I only ever leave reviews in situations where I wish there was a bonus star option but in this situation I wish I had the option to give Dr. Surette and the staff at the clinic (who we met today and on previous visits) 7 stars!  There truly isn't any other doctor I'd trust with the medical welfare of my 3 cat kids.”
