★★★★★ We had the best experience from the second we walked in to the second we walked out. Everyone was so friendly, easy check in process, very organized, knowledgeable and helpful. We had previous X-rays done and I was told we would have to have surgery. Dr. Mortimer looked over the X-rays and recommended we do laser treatment. He was so thorough when checking out my dog and I felt so good with the decision to move forward. We had to schedule 6 appointments in 3 weeks and there was no problem getting appointments that worked with my schedule. If you are looking for a great vet hospital, I highly recommend!McKenzie S.McKenzie S. ★★★★★ Dr. Thoder is amazing and is truly a “cat whisperer”. Our cat went cray-cray when she went to the previous ver, but she was totally relaxed with Dr. Thoder and Amanda, his assistant.

He diagnosed her with stomach lymphoma on 9/18/23 & allowed me to take her home with palliative care. She lived well for a few weeks, but it didn't last, so at a final Quality of Life assessment on 10/23/23, he assisted her in a peaceful passing. Dr. Mortimer & his staff were a blessing to me & Ophelia, and their kindness will always be remembered.P S.P S. ★★★★★ In my 30 years of life in RVA, Quioccasin has cared for 3 of my dogs (2 of them put to sleep in old-age). The veterinarian who exclusively looked after my last dog her whole life and ended up euthanizing her at my family’s request, made a triple-digit donation to the Veterinary School at the University I graduated from, in the name of my late dog, not his own.We currently have a 20 year old rescue mixed toy poodle, blind and deaf, can’t walk very well. Quioccasin is doing everything they can to keep her comfortable, full belly, and happy. Not all vets would treat her the same.Connor O.Connor O. ★★★★★ Today was my first visit and I was SO impressed from the phone appointment to the friendliness of the staff to them talking me through everything.

They loved Dr. Mortimer and the staff. We decided to change veterinary hospitals and took both of our dogs to QVH for the first time this week. Each of them has severe anxiety difficulties with going to the vet. The doctors they saw and the staff were all wonderful to them and to my husband and me. They took all the time they needed to get the information about the dogs, to discuss future veterinary care, and to accomplish the treatments about which we were the most concerned. We drive 30 miles each way to bring our dogs to QVH, and it is totally worth it.Elizabeth Smart F.Elizabeth Smart F. ★★★★★ Excellent service, kindness and understanding.

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.

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. ★★★★☆ 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.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).
