Today was our 15.5 year old Toy Poodle, Jocko's, first appointment with Dr. Heather. The friendly staff as well as Dr. Heather herself made Jocko feel at ease from the start. He had a thorough wellness exam and we had the chance to ask many questions. We were very impressed with the thorough explanations given to us. We feel that Jocko is in very good hands. We greatly appreciated receiving the emailed report which was a very detailed account of our visit. This went above and beyond our expectations! Since Jocko is a senior dog we want him to have the best geriatric care. We have found this at NSVH.

I have been very happy with Dr. Heather DiGiacomo and her team, especially when they took the time to answer any and all questions that I had regarding my dog. Frankly speaking, I feel very comfortable and fortunate to have them as my Vet.

What a great experience for my dogs, no stress, very caring vet techs and Dr. DiGiacomo was very patient with my Boston Terrier. So glad I made the switch. I will definitely recommend this office to my friends.

We just moved here from another state and this vet came highly recommended. After our first visit, I completely understand why. Dr. DiGiacomo and her staff were just phenomenal. Everyone was professional, friendly, and I know my dog is getting the very best care with them. Dr. DiGiacomo spent time with us in the exam room, answering all of our questions, and made us feel totally comfortable. The office space is new, clean, and they’ve created a really nice atmosphere. Later that night we got a follow up email from her, which detailed that day’s visit - how amazing is that? I am so happy that we found Newtown Square Vet. They totally rock.

I made the switch to NSVH with Dr. DiGiacomo a few months back and absolutely LOVE her and everyone of her caring staff. The office is clean, efficient and easy to get to. Just last week I had to take my pal, Gunner, for a "sick" appointment. Dr. Heather spent so much time with him, and with his human. He had two infections and required a thorough exam and treatment. Dr. Heather's kindness knows no bounds - Gunner was not nervous, he felt safe and his human, me, felt, well, overwhelmed at the care he received. He is on the right track and is feeling 1,000% better but what really touched me was I received a follow up note summarizing the appointment and what a sweet boy he is. I haven't had an experience like this at a vet for a really long time.Friends, bring your fur-children to Dr. Heather DiGiacomo ... you will not be disappointed. Just love from Gunner and his human. HUGS and woof.

Fear Free and Feline Friendly

One was to create a personalized, progressive hospital with a family-friendly feel and state of the art medicine. Second was to provide our patients with a calm, welcoming and stress-free environment. Third was to design a hospital that specifically […]

They Hear Us. They Just Don’t Care.

If you’ve owned a cat, you won’t be surprised by this study. Scientists at the University of Tokyo have confirmed what us cat owners have known for years: cats can recognize our voices, yet they often choose to ignore us! To me, this is what makes cats so intriguing. We really have to work to […]
