STAY AWAY from this place!!! Completely took advantage of us - Inexperienced vet ordered major surgery that was not necessary (clinic did not disclose it was his first day and he was only 2 months licensed).

I've had my dog for 6 years, and my experience at City Vets was by far the worst I've had with him. Sunday morning, my dog was vomiting and generally not being himself. Being new to the neighborhood, I called both City Vets and LIC Vets and managed to get an appointment at City. Dr. Bebawy ordered xrays and blood work ($400) which is standard and immediately called me in to a tiny closet like room in back to review the film and informed me my dog had ingested something and he had to do a $2,900 surgery right away and needed to keep my dog over night before the surgery for another $400. I refused to leave my dog there over night especially when informed that no one would be there after 6 to monitor him.

After being sent home with a $79 Sub Q fluid bag on Sunday afternoon- My dog seems much better, he's scarfing down his food and bouncing around the apartment. I went back to City on Monday because they implied if I didn't do another x ray ($190) and have them cut my dog's stomach open to remove object that he would eventually die. They do the xray and I'm still skeptical about operation so I ask for another day. Monday night they call for my credit card information (they seemed sooooo anxious to get the $3000 out of me). I started googling the specific doctors and find horrible things written about the owner, Dr. Beshoy Rafla (he is referred to as a "dog killer" in more than one review) and cannot find a thing about Dr. Bebawy (The front desk at City Vets didn't even know how to spell his name). After a day Dr Rafla emails me and says, Dr. Bebawy has been licensed for 2 months and oh by the way it was his first day - I realize then that I'm dealing with a shady situation and I cancel the entire procedure and decide to get a second opinion.

I took my dog to a new vet the following day and he did another examination, reviewed the xrays and said under no circumstances should they have even considered operating on my dog. It turns out the "object "we were looking at in the X ray at City vets was a gas pocket and they were more or less pulling a scam to get me to agree to a very expensive surgery.

I am soooo happy that I sought a second opinion and went with my gut when it came to city vets, not only would I have been out a lot of money, but more importantly, they could have killed my dog with such an invasive surgery, especially with a vet with no experience performing it. Avoid this place at all costs.......

I'm so happy this vet is in the neighborhood- Dr. Adams is warm, great with our dogs, and was available and very helpful when we had an emergency a few months back. Highly recommend!

I am a self proclaimed neurotic dog owner and took my 5 year old dog to Dr Adams today. She was was kindest and most professional vet ever. Jason the office manager is amazing as well. I live in Manhattan, and travel all the way to LIC to see Dr Adams upon recommendation of a friend who lives out there. Not only are the prices not to shabby, but the staff is very helpful and polite. My dog even felt very comfortable, and she hates going to the vet!

I took my dog to the City Vet this Saturday for the first time; they did a fantastic job. MY dog looked great and the people at the City Vet were so nice! I will continue to take my dog to this vet and any future animals I may have. The prices are reasonable too; they advertise their grooming prices online and they stick to the prices when paying out also (I've taken my dog to several groomers around Astoria and they charge $25.00 MORE on average than their advertised prices online-that's called FALSE Advertising folks! The best part about City Vet is that they make you feel comfortable about leaving your pet there to be groomed, I don't feel that there's any cruelty happening there (I took my dog to another groomer in LIC and they dropped a dog off the grooming table and they were very rude and unclean. I won't have to worry about this at City Vet!

I highly recommend City Vet to LIC and surrounding Queens locals. Dr. Jules Adams is the kindest, sweetest, most generous vet I and my kitties ever had the pleasure to visit. She goes out of her way to do all she can for your pet, and the office staff is very friendly and helpful. Word out of the street is that City Vet is the best vet in town, trustworthy and reliable....you and your furry friends won't be disappointed.

I'm so thankful that City Vet exists -- not only because it is extremely convenient to my home but also because the staff is wonderful and I know my cat is getting excellent care. I used to travel all the way to carroll gardens to see a vet with qualities of Dr. Adams at City Vet (friendly, knowledgeable, non judgemental, gentle and respectful towards animals and people). Now I just have to walk a few blocks. It's a clean, positive environment and everyone is friendly and professional. Dr. Adams is extremely respectful toward my 18 year old cat and has a special way of disarming her in order to administer care -- I don't know what it is exactly but the cat just lets her do stuff -- stuff that she would never let me do. I have met other people who have taken their pet(s) there and we all feel the same way. Do yourself a favor and take your pet to City Vet. Dr. Adams is a true animal lover and excellent doctor. The household pet whisperer is in LIC!

I brought my cat Oliver here for a check up. He hates going to the vet and gets really difficult (scratching, biting, etc) The staff was great. Very patient and dealt with him really well. The vet took time to talk with me and answer all of my questions. I didn't feel rushed. The place is really clean and the decor is cute and old-timey. Not like a doctor's office at all. It's pretty close to the 7 train. Definitely will come back.

I recently moved to the area and shortly after adopted a kitten. I was buying cat litter at City Dog pet store and while there met Dr. Jules Adams who just opened a new Vet clinic further down on Vernon Blvd. She was really friendly... I had felt like I had known her forever. We got to talking about my kitten and she said I should stop by to have him checked out.
The staff at City Vet is extremely friendly and knowledgeable! The office manager Jason is VERY nice (and not to mention very cute)...Dr Adams is a sweetheart and is GREAT with animals! They are awesome and I highly recommend them. If you have an animal - I say take them to City Vet!
