II have been a client of Lakeside Animal Hospital for approx 15 years, unfortunately, and sadly, since Dr. Fernandez
passed away the practice in my oponion as well as others is not quite the same.
The front desk staff has changed numerous times, most of these young people are not as courteous and
professional as they should be, and some give out medical advice when they shouldnt without the proper
The rates they charge are outrageous compared to other local practices (including rates at a vetenary hospital
which unfortunately I had to use), the charges for my pets 2 day and night stay with specialists, was less than
blood work, and some other medical work provided by Lakeside.
I have only used Dr. Barr and Dr Lande since Dr Fernandez passed away, Dr Barr since moved away, she was
pretty sharp in her diagnosis with my animals was somewhat an alarmist, Dr Lande is ok, but needs to work
on her bedside manner, and also maybe challenge the lab that provides her blood work.
I have changed and gone on to another facility with a better reputation and hope for the best in doing so.
