The veterinarian is really good. I took my cat in for an illness and was so pleased to receive follow up calls to check her health and see if an additional prescription as needed. I am confident the vet is working with hard to figure out the best diet/medication combination to get my kitty healthy again!

The Best veterinarian hospital. Me and my husband took my cat Melody there last week because she wasn't having a good labor. We called after hours and the lady in the front was kind enough to wait for us since it was considered an emergency. Melody was very dehydrated. She had being trying to gibe birth all day long ! Dr Rocha was able to perform the caesarian. Our four kittens are doing well. Also, they helped me with applying for care credit, which is a payment plan- inyerest free dor a year. That was awsome! They are really there to help you as well as your pet. I really recommend this hospital. I am very pleased with their care and services. .

My shortened yelp review: DO NOT TAKE YOUR PET to this place!!! I read the bad reviews but decided to take my bird anyway because she was bleeding a bit from a broken feather!!! This vet, who did not tell us his name, has NO knowledge of birds!! Here is what you can expect: They put us in a room and two people walked in. They did not tell us who they were, or why they were there. They just took my bird out of the cage with a towel and began weighing her. No gloves despite the fact that my bird is injured and is bleeding. They put a thermometer with no disposable cover, into my birds anus. Again, no gloves. The vet walks in and does not introduce himself as the vet. He is dressed like everyone else. I had to ask him if he was the vet. He begins questioning my birds living situation (eg. Type of food she eats, if she lives with other birds, if she plucks her own feathers) These questions are expected, but it took so long, we hadn't even gotten to the fact that my bird was injured! To some, this may seem like a thorough questioning, but he ignored half of my answers anyway. This was far from a thorough questioning, it was more like a lecture on how to care for birds. It didn't matter what I said, he ignored 90% of it. For example, he asked what I feed the bird, I said "fruits, veggies, and seeds". Then later, he said that I should not give the bird just seeds!! And he asked, do you give the bird fruits and vegetables? So I repeated again, "yes, fruits veggies and seeds" I Realize that this vet may not be fluent in English. I began talking to him in Spanish to see if that would help him actually listen to what I was saying to him. I was frustrated because I had to explain the situation several times, but he still wasn't listening. He grabbed the bird and walked out of the room. Not a peep! Just walked out with my bird in his hand!!!!! I freaked out because if my bird got away, I doubt he would take responsibility. So I followed him. I said "excuse me! Can you please explain what is happening? Where is my bird going?" He said, "I'm going to examine the under a special light, but if you don't want me to..." As he handed me the my bird!!!!!! I just wanted to know what was happening to my bird! Wouldn't we all?? If our pet is injured, don't we want to know where it's going??? Again, no gloves. He returns with the bird and tells me my bird has a tumor. A bleeding tumor. So he puts quikstop on the wing and antibiotic powder. He squeezes the wing of my bird and draws blood, and tells me "see? He's bleeding from the tumor". Puts more quick stop. He keeps trying to show me the tumor, but all I see is a regular bird wing (I'm familiar with bird anatomy as I took ornithology as an upper division class at UCI). At this point, I had had it. I didn't want to put my poor bird through any more of this. When he put my bird back in its cage, the bird dusted himself off and the vet said "see, only your bird knows what discomfort he's feeling because of the tumor. He's shaking himself because he's uncomfortable from the tumor". At that point, I wanted to laugh. He obviously never owned a bird before. In the end, the vet concluded that my pet bird had a tumor, that it removed its own feathers because the tumor causes so much discomfort. No other signs of plucking in my bird. At all. This was his conclusion despite the fact that I told him my bird suffers from night terrors (as many cockatiels do) and that she has hurt her wings a few times in the past in a similar fashion. It didn't matter that we had actually seen the flapping and the injury happen. He won't listen. I DO NOT RECOMMEND you take your pet here unless you don't mind unsanitary practice, and a vet with very little knowledge who will not listen to you AT ALL. I also think they make their own yelp reviews. They actually have a booklet in the office that says that they "good" yelp reviews are "mysteriously disappearing". I really don't think they're mysteriously disappearing. That's just what happens when you write your own yelp reviews :/

We trust them with our heart, for Firestone Animal Hospital is genuinely one of the most caring and professional veterinary centers in California. They are the finest in the industry for providing with the best health care solutions possible. Our pets don’t throw tantrums if a visit to this hospital is needed – they look more relieved than us rather. Yes, it’s highly recommended on our list.

Dr. Rocha is the most experienced vet I could find, and I was glad I took the time to do my research... mind you, I found him 15 years ago. Since then, he has treated my pets, my family''s pets, and my friends' pets with the utmost professionalism and expertise. I went in today after a couple of years since our 18 year old lab passed away, with a new pet- an African Grey Parrot. I was happy to see the same staff, and receive the same great- to the point- service.

I cannot believe how beautiful and clean this facility is. I have been to others and they are filthy. Any way, I took my dog, dolly, to Dr Rocha last week because she suffers from different skin conditions. I have taken her ti so many vets and nothibg seems to get better. No other Dr had ever told me that I needed to change my pets diet in order to improve her skin! Untill dr. Rocha pointed it out to me. Dolly has fungus contamination, hot spots and skin ulcers. When she gets one or two fleas the problem worsens because , now I know , that she is also allergic to fleas. Dr Rocha recommended a treatment which included some injections, meds to take home, special hypoallergenic shampoo, flea control pills and a prescription diet called z/d. Dolly's skin has improved dramatically. I am actually taking her back tomorrow for a follow up. I am just so glad I found a real veterinarian who knows what he is doing !

Where do I start the staff is terrible! The vet doctor even worse! Horrible service, I went there to take my pup for his vaccines and the doctor had NO MANNERS WHATSOEVER. Plus to say she didn't even properly introduced herself. They had us waiting over 2 hrs seems like they had forgotten we were there! Not sure what kind of place they're running here, but it's very unprofessional. Every question or concern I had regarding my puppy the female vet would dismiss my concern as if I was disturbing/aggravating her. And to the 1 question she actually responded she responded with a snarky comment. She also didn't take the time to explain the procedure of what she was going to do to my little one. She grabbed my puppy like a piece of trash and hurt him while she vaccinated him. I highly do NOT recommend this place at all. Terrible service and doctor. Horrible experience NEVER going back here again!!
