Very friendly staff. Quality service. Great veterinarians. Price is what you would expect. You can take advantage of student discount and frequent emailed promotions. Make sure you ask for a quote before agreeing to a treatment plan - they are getting better at providing one for you now without having to ask.

I'm a little disappointed with their office staff. I went in a few months ago to get monthly flea and a parasite medicine for my cats and I was given the wrong order. They were going to give me less than what I had paid for. It took several minutes to explain why it was the wrong amount. If I hadn't noticed I would have ended up paying for items I hadn't received. It was a bit unnerving that the office rep didn't check the amounts or confirm my order. This time around, I decided to go on 1-800 Pet Meds to fill the prescription. The medicine is less expensive on there and I wanted to avoid any problems. Plus I don't have a car... So it's a hassle to go there anyways. I called to ask them to approve the prescription and the office rep told me they did receive it but they've been too busy to fax it back. It's been three days since they received it. I find it hard to believe it takes this long to fax an approval back. She also asked me why I chose to go through another provider. I told her it was just more convenient for me. And I asked when they would get to it. She said "when we get around to it". Is that a day? A week?? I asked if she could elaborate with a timeline and she refused to. The whole conversation made me feel uneasy. Like they just wanted to make it harder to order online through a website so I would be forced to go into the office. I mean I understand you're a business and want to make money off of products you sell but you're also a place thats supppsed to look out for the wellbeing of animals. The longer it takes the more susceptible my cats are to getting fleas. I've been taking my two cats to Millhopper Vet for over 4 years. So it's really disappointing... Based on my past two interactions with the office staff I think I will go somewhere else for their vet visits.

Dr. Harris is like family. He has wonderful compassion and expertise. I can always count on him to give the most informed diagnosis regarding my cat's health. The staff at Millhopper Veterinary Medical Center are attentive and expeditious, the technicians are well educated, and the wait time is always worth it. I would like to see less turnover at the reception desk. I like to see a familiar face when I walk in the door.

Dr. Harris is a great vet and always takes the extra time to go above and beyond. I often communicate with him via email about my pets' health and he will recommend treatment I can do myself if it is not necessary to bring the pets in. Millhopper also has excellent pricing.. One reason many people don't take their pets to the vet regularly is because of the outrageous costs that most vets charge. Millhopper offers student discount, has regular discounts, promotions, and rebates on medications, regular wellness visits, and vaccine packages so we are always getting a great deal when we go in there. I can now take my dogs to the vet 2x a year and get everything they need where in the past I did not take them for regular visits, rather just when they were sick. Ranging from doing the research and helping me through a big challenge when my tree frogs were sick, to putting one of our old dogs to sleep in the most painless way for all of us, to treating our current dogs, one very young and one old with all and any issues. Dr. Harris is also open minded about hearing my feedback about holistic treatments I research and try on my own and is helpful in keeping our visits very conservative instead of pushing us into tests and treatments that we don't really need. All of these great things about Millhopper make our vet visits are as easy as possible for everyone, especially our wallets! Thank you!

I now live in Orlando but i still bring my dog here. I have never met a more caring staff! They all truly have your pets best interest at heart. They have gone beyond the mile to help us when my dog has been ill and they always follow up to be sure she's progressing well. I truly appreciate their concern and willingness to give. I highly recommend their services!

My daughter a college student, took her kitten to be neutered and have the hiv test and shots done. They told her that her cat had a heart murmur and needed and echocardiogram done in order for them to make sure he could be neutered. She called me crying and told me it was going to cost over $600 to neuter her cat. I told her to get the shots and test and I would take him and have him checked at my vet. They wouldn't even test him because they said "he's just too mean" WHAT?? You are suppose to be a vets office. And a 6 month old kitten was "too mean"? I took him to my vet, they heard no heart murmur, he was neutered, they did the test and gave him his shots and the grand total was $83. And they said he was a perfect gentleman. Absolutely NO problems! This vets office is a joke. They are ALL about money, even trying to take advantage of a college student. Ridiculous. My advice: find a reputable, vets office that isn't out to just take your money, but actually cares about your animals. Karma will get you thieves.

I absolutely love Millhopper Vet Center! They have taken such great care of my new puppy from her first shots to boarding to being spayed. The staff and Dr.Harris are all wonderful and sincere! They truly care about your pet and make sure that you know it. My husband and I are so happy to have found such a wonderful vet office in Gainesville! Thanks!

We saw Dr. David Menard. When he came in the room he did not introduce himself. I had to ask him his name. He then left after a minute to check on some test results. When he returned 10 minutes later, his demeanor was pleasant and calm. He asked me to put my new puppy on the exam table. He told me my dog did not test positive for parvo or worms. He then proceeded to grab my puppy by the back and inject her with a syringe. He gave me no heads up. I did not even know what he was injecting her with. I was not even holding my dog! She squealed and I had to grab and hold her while he proceeded to complete the injection. I asked him what it was and he told me an antibiotic. I am a nurse and I would NEVER give someone an injection without informing them what it was first! It was traumatic for me and did not leave a good first impression. I was very disappointed.
