Testimonials

Deborah N, Arlington

Very caring and skilled staff and vets.  There is a thoughtful discussion about the animals’ lives, what they do and how they live, to determine their needs and my desire for their directed care.  Always willing to research an unfamiliar question.  Good hands on handling of both my energetic working border collie and my determined elderly cat. A very new balance.


Rebecca F, Vienna

I love GFAH.  Can’t say enough about the wonderful staff and the car my pup receives.  Dr. Cook is Sunny’s doctor.  I trust her completely.


Maria M, Reston

Thank you Dr. Garrood.  Your thorough physical exam revealed a potentially life-threatening heart issue that otherwise went undetected.  I am truly appreciative of your referral to a specialist.


Julie B, Reston

We were treated very well.  Dr. Garrood is a wonderful caregiver!  I always come away from an appointment with her feeling satisfied and calm. . . even after a heart rendering situation.  I so much appreciate her insight fullness and having her there for us!


Joseph P, Stafford

I have recently moved to Stafford, Virginia but I refuse to transfer my pet’s medical records to a local vet because Great Falls is the best in the business.  Their exhibited emotional intelligence sets the example for veterinary care.


Jessie R, Great Falls

Jane was taken in for examination quickly even though we arrived a bit early.  She was handled gently and professionally.


Carol S, Springfield

I have been going to Dr. Garrood at GFAH for 15 years and am always impressed by her patience with my dog and his issues and by her deep compassion for my dog’s welfare.  She listens intently to my concerns and is always very responsive.  The staff are always so supportive and friendly.  I drive from Springfield to GFAH with a dog who has high car anxiety.  There are a zillion vets in between Springfield and Great Falls, so that give an idea of how much I adore Dr. Garrood, et. all!


Barbara F, Reston

In the roughly 45 years you’ve been taking care of my pets, I have never been disappointed.  I’ll never go anywhere else.  Thank you very, very, much.


Tina S, McLean

As usual our latest visit to GF Animal Hospital was wonderful.  Dr. Goldsmith spent a lot of time answering all my questions in detail.  From the technicians to the front staff, everyone was pleasant and efficient.  We’ve been bringing our dog to GF Animal Hospital for over 12 years and although we no longer live in Great Falls I wouldn’t dream of taking her anywhere else.  Thank you GF Animal Hospital!


Nelson P, Herndon

We have been with GFAH for over 14 years.  The entire staff is wonderful and we always feel that they care about us and our bets.  The care is superb and even in the darkest moments they show such compassion.  I can’t say enough good things about this dedicated and wonderful group of people.
