"Really appreciate Melissa, Heather and HPAH's in-house grooming service! They are more like family, than Vet staff. Dr. Zak cares about the dogs in her care and their owners. The Vet Hospital always looks well-maintained with plenty of medicines/supplies on hand, when needed."
"We love Dr.Zak and all the staff!!! They take great care of my dogs and don't try to price gouge me, they will always go over the fees with you so there's no surprises."
"Dr. Zak and staff are very pleasant, committed, and thorough in regards to the care of our cats. I truly feel they have our best interests, especially for Mojo and Jedi, in mind. We really appreciate their aid and compassionate care when Pippin was laid to rest. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"

"Thank you for taking care of our Gypsy this weekend as she made her transition to the Rainbow Bridge. From the compassion and concern I got from the receptionist who took my call...to having the room set up and ready for us as soon as we arrived...you helped our family incredibly by making our last moments with our beloved family member better. We appreciate you all!"
"This office is awesome. The service is great, the staff is exceptional and the facility is clean and welcoming. They have fair pricing and never try to charge you for things that you don't need, their first priority is the health and well being of your fur babies which is very refreshing. They are easy to communicate with and I have never had issues making appointments or speaking directly with someone for assistance. Dr Zak and the staff even call to check on our pups when they have had emergencies or treatments at other facilities after hours. They are just a really great caring staff!!! It's always a pleasure to visit and bring our pups to this office, we recommend them all the time to anyone who will listen! Five Stars all the way, great job Hamilton Plaza!"
"Great all around. Had to put my dog down and she made a house call with Heather, her Tech. They were really awesome through the whole process. It was last minute and they accommodate so well! They truly care about you and your pets! Highly recommend."

"Dr. Tara Zak and her crew are just, in a word, awesome! I met Dr. Zak through business- marketing solutions for her business which included direct mail. I knew when I met her that I needed to utilize her services for our two boxers and that meant switching vets…but it was worth it! Storm and Nike loved visiting the hospital and the atmosphere is so pet friendly. When our son brought us a rescue puppy from his College town four years ago, we took Rommel for all his initial vaccinations and exam straight to Dr. Tara who was really sweet and put him right at ease. Rommel loves visiting HPAH and all the staff for his annual services and refers him to all his buddies at the dog park Recently, our son Graduated from College and wanted a German Shepherd for his Graduation gift and, again, Dr. Tara performed all the necessary “Puppy” exams and administered Duke’s vaccinations. Even though we have recently moved to Monroe our boys’ doctor will be just a few miles away in Dacula and worth the drive! Thank you for your business Dr. Tara and be assured you will continue to have our business taking care of our four-legged son and grandson!"
“Dr. Tara Zak is amazing! She is extremely knowledgeable, tender, and caring. After reaching out to Laurie at the SBC when we had an emergency with our cat, we were referred to Dr. Zak. We had taken him to an emergency clinic the night before and were really worried. Dr. Zak immediately sprung into action and we knew we were in great hands. She knew the answers to all of our questions and even moved our cat to a large habitat so he would have plenty of room to move around. Our cat was calm, snuggly, and feeling much better when we picked him up a few days later, which is a true testament to Dr. Zak’s sweet nature and calm, caring environment. A lot of people tell us we’re crazy to drive from Buckhead to Dacula for a vet, but we wouldn’t trust anyone else to my cats! Our experience has not only brought a wonderful vet into our lives, but also shown us how wonderful the SBC is at filling the needs of their members, even in an emergency. Thank you Dr. Zak and SBC!!”

"When our son told us he wanted us to adopt a puppy he wanted to save from euthanisation while working on his fraternity's Community Service project at an animal shelter, we knew there was only one place to take, Rommel, for his vaccinations and exam! The Hamilton Plaza Animal Hospital, Dr. Zak and her staff are simply the best choice for professional and expert care!
Their facility is "state of the art" and their environment is very pro patient which means the animals come first! We are quick to refer Hamilton Plaza Animal Hospital to our family and friends and Rommel loves to tell all his friends at the dog park about Dr. Zak!
Thank you for taking care of our "hairy" son!”
"I would like to thank you and your entire staff for taking such good care of my dog Cally and my sweet cat Sparkey that passed away on 04/03/12. During the past two months I have had several visits in your office and you have ALL gone above and beyond any animal hospital I have ever been to in the past 30 years. When my daughter came home with Cally the other day, I looked at the receipt and I noticed that the ear cleaning was zero dollars and it said; courtesy. I was liked Shocked! But what is most important is your staff, professionalism and your love of animals. You gals rock! I am so glad I switched over to your business and I am sure others feel the same way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart....”
"My best friend referred me to this office. Words cannot express how grateful I am for this office and its staff. Everyone is always so nice and helpful. I can tell that they love my puppy and that they will always give her the best care. Thanks so much for all that you do.”

"I want to give a shout out to Tara Zak Bishop and her staff at Hamilton Plaza animal clinic. They are so dedicated even off duty. She's a good friend of mine and old Tennis partner who's always donating her time as well as items for charity. Her passion for animals is amazing and my pets have always loved them. If you are ever looking for a vet that treats you like a family, please go see her."
