5 Star Review: “This office is fantastic. Dr. Oilver has been my vet for years. His compassion and knowledge are off the charts. I seem to have dogs with complex medical problems and I couldn’t ask for better care than his. Jennifer’s customer service at the front desk is warm and knowledgable. She is always on top of everything and willing to help wherever needed. My dogs are my kids and important members of our family and I feel like Dr. Oliver treats them like part of his family too. I recommend this office hands down! You won’t be disappointed. ” Sharon N.

5 Star Dog Veterinarian Review Mesa:From the first phone conversation and the quick availability for an appointment we realized that the Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital was not your typical vet shake down.

When we took one of our pugs in for his first appointment we were taken back to the clean and scent free exam room immediately. Dr. Oliver examined our furry friend and gave us a straight-forward overview of what we should do and what treatment plans were available. At no time did we feel obligated to do more than what we could afford but all options were laid out based on the symptoms we reported, visual exam, and lab work. Dr. Gary Oliver was extremely professional and showed a great deal of empathy for our pug.

When calling for follow-up we were able to speak directly with Dr. Oliver regarding changes in condition and continue to receive support from the office with any needs. ” Jasmine L.
