Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr. Weiner is truly wonderful! I met him under very sad circumstances. My friend recommended Dr. Weiner to us. My 14 year old cat was dying from lymphoma that was wide spread. I called the office and asked the doctor to come out and put my cat to sleep because his back paws got completely paralyzed and he could not swallow anymore. Dr. Weiner came over to my house in Suffern the same afternoon with his assistant Alex. Dr. Weiner has the best bedside manners ever. He made my cat comfortable and allowed me to take my time. I have 8 more cats and I will definitely make sure that Dr. Weiner is our primary vet going forward. Thank you, Dr. Weiner!"
