From soup to nuts it's always a pleasant experience - my dog might disagree on that - but from the human point of view it's great. Everyone is welcoming, and the entire staff show concern and consideration. We travel from Manteo and that's a fair distance but that is offset by the punctuality and readiness of the clinic and the staff. An 11am appointment means an 11am appointment, not an arrival at 11 and a wait until noon. On very rare occasions an animal in need of emergency care has delayed our appointment, but that was never a problem. If my dog needed emergency treatment I am sure that other clients in the waiting room would understand. The only regret from our last visit is that we didn't get to see Maybelline.
We were vacationing in Nags Head for the week, and our dog got sick while we were there. I called Coastal Animal Hospital when they opened, and they were able to fit us in that same morning. The staff was so friendly and so helpful, and they even called us the next day to make sure our pup was feeling better. They are wonderful! We come down to the Outer Banks every year, so it is very comforting to know if we have any more pet issues, we have a friendly and knowledgeable vet we can take them to! I highly recommend Coastal Animal Hospital.
Dr Hicks takes care of our animals! All of them, we have 12 cats and dogs. I have called her in emergency situations twice now and she is there, prompt, compassionate and has as such time to give as needed for the patient! My family, humans and fur babies are grateful for her! Thanks for always being there!!
Always a great visit at CAH, staff is always nice and the doctor is great with my two dogs. I’ve been to other vets and the experience is the complete opposite. They actually care and understand that we are upset and worried.
The staff were all very friendly to me and caring to my pup. They took time to get what was needed and to explain my dogs needs. I trust they will take care of her whole health. And my pup likes going there too.!
While on vacation my 12 year old golden retriever Nikki developed a uti. It was horrifying to wake up to. Got ahold of my sister in law who knew the area well and she recommended coastal. To my surprise I was asked to come right in and that they would squeeze me in. Nikki felt much better that evening and I couldn't be happier with their expertise.
