He is a kind and honorable man.If you aren't happy with your current Vet, please consider Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital.SS ★★★★★ I was temporarily managing two in-distress and sick kittens, Grunt and Chief White Paws, for an associate. I took them to Quioccasin, based on the reviews, for treatment and boarding while they recovered. Could not have been more impressed with the level of concern and care by Dr. Carlton and her staff. Both kittens received excellent treatment, are fully recovered and now in their permanent home. Grunt and the Chief are doing super, getting ready for the holidays and highly recommend the Q!Will W.Will W. ★★★★★ I'd recommend 👍Chris “.Chris “. ★★★★★ My dog was suddenly sick and my visiting vet wasn’t available. Not being an emergency, I didn’t want the cost or the trauma of going to the pet ER. So I called local vet clinics, needing my dog to be checked. None were willing to fit me in- even at the end of their schedule, except one, and that was Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital. They gave me a fit -in appointment, meaning my dog would be seen between their scheduled clients. I was so grateful. My dog hadn’t eaten in two days, had thrown up and also had loose stools. I took her in, provided paperwork from her last vet check and waited only a short time before being seen. Dr. Hillenbrand was clearly very knowledgeable and did an extensive check to rule out a serious situation. I waited for the lab work results, and was relieved to know my dog would be fine. The clinic is located near shops and so the half hour wait passed quickly by going for a coffee and getting fresh air. I’d recommend Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital to any pet owner who wants the peace of mind knowing a well trained vet is always available. The follow up calls about my dog’s recovery meant a lot as well.Kathryn N.Kathryn N. ★★★★★ Very caring and understanding staff. Highly recommend!Lisa D.Lisa D. ★★★★★ We followed Dr. Garland here from our previous vet, and I can't say enough good things about her and this practice.They've taken such good care of our two cats, and are always patient with questions and present all available options when a decision needs to be made.Update: we've recently adopted a 3rd cat which we also take here. They are just as good with our new cat as they are with our previous 2Alex K.Alex K. ★★★★★ My cats have been loyal patients of Quioccasin Vet for many years; from kidney dialysis to nail clipping (pawicures), each has been treated with compassion, love, and vast knowledge. The clerical staff, the vet techs, the vets, and the corporate ownership remain the best for the care of our four-legged family members.Edna M.Edna M. ★★★★★ I've been going to this vet for almost 20 years, and they're still amazing, even through the pandemic with staff shortages and the like. Highly recommend!Allison S.Allison S. ★★★★★ Q.V. is great and the people wonderful. They treat your pet as if they are family. Would highly recommend them to family and friends 🐕‍🦺Anita B.Anita B. ★★★★★ Great staff and Dr Mortimer is responsive and caring.Trish B.Trish B. ★★★★★ Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital has a great reputation. I appreciate their courteous staff and friendly, knowledgeable doctors.Shelley J.Shelley J. ★★★★★ Great vets.

You can tell they really care about both the animals and their owners!Ben E.Ben E. ★★★★★ Absolutely WONDERFUL people!Need a vet? Come here!!Great parking, office nice & staff GREAT!Acts 1.Acts 1. ★★★★★ Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital is simply the best.They offer a wide range of services and fair pricing. The quality of care they have provided for our pets over the last 15 years has been outstanding. The staff truly care about the animals and this is evident the moment you step foot in the door. Dr. Mortimer truly has a passion for veterinary medicine, and we've always felt like he treated our animals as if they were his own. We've recently lost our elderly fur babies, and the way the staff handled this heartbreaking situation with such compassion was healing for us. We couldn't be more grateful.Tara D.Tara D. ★★★★★ Great place to take your dog. They really love them upMike D.Mike D. ★★★★★ Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital is the best. Dr. Mortimer has been providing outstanding professional and compassionate care for our cats for more than 22 years. The staff is always courteous and helpful, and facility cleanliness is obviously a priority.Dianne B.Dianne B. ★★★★★ The vets and staff care about their patients and go out of their way to help them.Anne R.Anne R. ★★★★★ We've been here a few times now. I thought the first couple of times were oversights but it seems to happen every time! I asked twice for a certain service. They said yes they could provide it but each time it was not done. The lady on the phone said she would make a note to be sure it was done. I guess it's time to move to another facility. *** May 6,2022 we got Kaiser's nails filed. * updated my review.Mary HMary H ★★★★★ I like Dr. Mortimer.nails on the go come to Y.nails on the go come to Y. ★★★★★ A place I trust to take good care of my fur babyMelanie F.Melanie F. ★★★★★ Over 20 years ago, We chose Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital to treat our first puppy. Consistently, the staff and our vet are pleasant and well experienced. We have been with Dr. Mortimer this whole time I believe. Through emergency visits and regular checkups, the Doctor and his staff are always educative and informative. We have also had to say goodbye to our loved ones over the years where our animals and family were treated with compassion in those hard times. We also moved but still travel about 30 minutes from Chesterfield to Henrico to continue working with the hospital as they are the best in our opinion.Dick K.Dick K. ★★★★★ Great vets! Caring staff! I have brought my pets here for over 22 years and have always had a positive experience. I highly recommend QVH!Amy T.Amy T. ★★★★★ I remember my kitten being really sick and throwing up for an entire day. As soon as she stopped eating I decided to bring her in. Even though they were fully booked, the doctor allowed us to bring her in after closing. Turns out, she ate something she shouldn’t have. I am so greatful for such an excellent team for being responsive and doctor for genuinely caring for animals.Nisa H.Nisa H. ★★★★★ Great experience!

All the staff is amazing and Dr. Randy Mortimer is especially responsive and thorough.Debbi B.Debbi B. ★★★★★ Fantastic and caring. My regular vet could not fit my sick cat in. QVH was very accomodating and worked him in after I had called numerous other vets. I dropped him off and the vet called me within a couple hours. She was very kind and explained what needed to be done. They called the next day to check on him. I truly appreciated that they fit in a sick cat that was not their own patient. I will definitely be switching my 3 pets to this practiceSarah T.Sarah T. ★★★★★ I unfortunately had to visit the Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital for the first time to have a pet euthanized, as my usual practice was closed. Quioccasin were very accommodating and made time to see me on short notice. They were very thoughtful and provided good care given the circumstances.Frederic D.Frederic D. ★★★★★ I had my Bear put down there. Dr. Mortimer was gentle and comforting.

All of the staff is very kind and professional. This is the first vet my dog is not scared to go into. Dr. Garland’s acupuncture has helped my dog’s arthritis, kidneys and keeping her seizure free. At the beginning of this year I was not sure how much longer my dog had. Now, we just celebrated her 14th birthday and she is active and thriving! I will be forever grateful to Dr. Garland and staff. I highly recommend her, especially for senior pups.A C.A C. ★★★★★ My son and his wife were away on vacation.The friend living at the house realized the five month old kitten was ill.I was called to take the kitten to the vet.Dr Garland cared so lovingly for Waffles.Waffles would need medication twice a day .I had been hospitalized for nine days for a critical asthma attack from cats.I had cats all my life !!!

They treat my pets like the family members they are.Becky C.Becky C. ★★★★★ Wonderful Vets - caring staff - kind responsive customer care. My multicat household has been delighted and appreciative of the wonderful care all my fur children have received for decades. We travel 20 to 30 minutes past other vets to go to Quioccasin where all the staff has always taken great care of all of us through routine exams and with serious injuries and surgeries. From kittenhood through elder issues - they have always been the absolute best.Diane S.Diane S. ★★★★★ Amazing staff and calm, comfortable environment. Dr. Garland is THE BEST!C JC J ★★★★★ QVH was very accommodating when my puppy was showing signs of a reaction to a bite or sting. His face was swelling quickly, and although it was almost closing time, they had me bring him up right away. They were very kind and didn’t make me feel like I was imposing on them. Dr. Mortimer and his staff are always friendly and thorough and puppy came home feeling much better.Lisa K.Lisa K. ★★★★★ Great vet. They obviously love your pet, they will fit you in as needed, and they always call back! We love them!!!Michele P.Michele P. ★★★★★ Dr. Mortimer is the most compassionate, wonderful vet. He cares as much about the owners as he does our pets.Alison S.Alison S. ★★★★★ I just started bringing my aunt's dog to Quioccasin Veterinary Hospital, as she isn't able to care for the dog any more, and I've been very impressed. Dr. Mortimer is knowledgeable, expert, and professional, plus very good with my aunt's dog. All the staff have been super friendly and helpful as well. I like the immediate response we needed, the quality of information provided on her health care, and the personal notes. This dog also needed dental surgery, and the level of care was superior to that we've had at other vet clinics. Since we moved to Richmond 15 years ago, we've tried some five other practices, as well as having vets in other places we've lived. Quiocassin is one of the best, in my experience. I'm planning on bringing our own two dogs to see Dr. Mortimer, as our current vet has left town.noelle W.noelle W. ★★★★☆ I have been taking my cat here for 6 years. The staff is always pleasant though sometimes it seems like they are a little rough. Went in recently and was told she had an ear infection but wasn’t given anything for it. However, I did find an ear wash with good reviews on Amazon and that has worked likea charm. Otherwise, I’ve never had an issue here. Great staff and clean as a vets office should be. They even have Hill Science Diet products available in the front.Anthony B.Anthony B. ★★★★☆ Very nice vetMegan B.Megan B.js_loader

My three chihuahuas have been Dr. Mortimer’s patients for over nine years. The expertise, love, and care demonstrated for each pet is extraordinary. The doctors and staff go the extra mile to help their patients and the parents. They are truly an amazing group that love and care for each pet. If there was a review rated outstanding, that would have been my choice!

We have used the Q for over 15 years for our cats and our dogs. Dr. Mortimer is a genius at diagnosing and treating a wide array of issues, and we have relied on his skills to help our animals live to amazing ages. The staff is incredibly caring. They do everything possible to help when we call or come in with a sick animal. They truly care for our pets, and many of the staff will come out from the back to pet our dogs
when they come in. They are so patient with shy animals like our ferally cat Stasha who needed laser treatments, and our Bagle Topsy who is afraid of her own shadow.Yes, they are not the cheapest vet in town, but they work with us on making a treatment plan we can afford, and we feel that the value and the care are well worth it. Thank you to everyone at the Q for their dedication and loving care.

Dr. Evans was so patient and kind with our kitty “Cookie”. Very caring and so helpful and answered many questions for me concerning her health. The office staff are kind, caring, and professional. The office is immaculate. I have never been to a vet where my pets and myself were treated so well. Love it and so glad to have found them. Best vet appointment ever!

Dorothy M.

I have been seeing Dr. Evans for at least 20 years. Her manner, knowledge, staff and facility are exceptional. I am a health care provider myself and hold the care of my pets to the highest standards….and I have never had a second thought about the care or recommendations of Dr. Evans. I moved out of town 6 years ago….and drive 3 hours each way to see her.

Kimberly W.

Met with Dr. Hiser today for the first time. Everyone at the
clinic–from the desk staff to the vet techs to the veterinarian were warm and welcoming. My dog Iris–who is often nervous around new people–was comfortable there and (I think) made a few new friends. Looking forward to a continued relationship with the clinic as my sweet girl grows up. Thanks, thanks thanks.

Stephanie C.

Wouldn’t trust my four-legged Kids to anyone else – they have guided us with all our dogs through the years. The entire staff is kind and patient with the animals (and their parents).
