"I have been taking my dog, Roxanne, to Dr. Zak for about 5 years now. The level or professionalism and courtesy from Dr. Zak and her staff is off the charts. We are always greeted with a smile and they've taken good care of Roxanne. Dr. Zak has a very good personal touch with the animals.....you can tell she truly cares for your dog and doesn't just see them as just aother patient/client. Roxanne is a 10 year old with a "not so great" rear right leg. Not only for check ups, but when we come merely to pick up her Flea/HW treatments, Dr. Zak will come out front and visit with her and usually she will even check her leg just to make sure she is alright. That, my friends, is a vet that cares and great customer service. "
"Dr Zak and staff always take such good care of our babies. Not only do we feel at ease but our animals do as well which is key. They are thorough and so incredibly kind. The care and follow up is truly exceptional. We appreciate everything they do to keep our pups happy and healthy. You’ll never find a better vet and staff!"
"We have 2 cats and one dog. We love Dr. Zak and the staff at Hamilton Plaza Animal Hospital. I knew when I read that Dr. Zak would rock smaller animals after surgery on her lap that she loves animals and really cares. That is exactly what I found bringing our crew here. Last year we had to put our 13 year old kitty down. The staff here is so kind and Dr. Zak told us to take our time with him to say our good byes. Not only did we have tears in our eyes but the staff did too. In the last two years, we have adopted a rescue siberian husky and Hamilton Plaza Animal Hospital has taken fantastic care of him. We also adopted a new kitten so that our 17 year old tuxedo kitty would have a buddy. We really like that we can bring our husky to be groomed here and if we need to board our babies they will be taken care of and loved. I would highly recommend Dr. Zak and staff at Hamilton Plaza Animal Hospital! "
"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."
"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 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....”
"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!”
Dr. Zak and her staff are awesome!!! Their office is always clean and organized. Max loves everyone there and is always excited when we walk in. The groomers are very talented and great with Max. He is a wild boy but that's never been a problem. I would recommend Dr Zak to everyone!! Hands down best experience I have ever had with a vet and staff!
"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."
"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!"
"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!"
"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!"
"Java is a miniature poodle and is 15 years old. It takes me over 30 minutes to get to Hamilton Plaza Animal Hospital, and I gladly drive the distance. Dr. Tara Zak and her staff are always kind, respectful and knowledgeable. They take there time explaining medicines and alternatives to me and Java isn't afraid when he comes to visit."
"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."
"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."
"This is the best veterinarian around. Dr. Tara Zak is an awesome veterinarian she is very compassionate about all of the animals that she see's. Dr. Tara Zak is genuine and honest. I have been bringing my pups here for 9 years. If I were to move 250 miles away I would drive just to take my pups to see her and the staff are phenomenal."
"Best Vet ever. Dr. Zak is a wonderful person and even when i lost my beloved 19 year old cat last year that she took care of for the last 10 plus years she was there for us and him. She is an amazing person and loves animals. All our animals love her and the staff. She is knowledgeable and very kind, she cares for your animals as if they were her own. thank you Dr Zak for taking care of our animals you do a wonderful job and i would not trust anyone else with them. Her place is clean and professional."
"Dr. Zak and her staff are the BEST!! She is punctual, personal, and very intelligent. Dr. Zak is very thorough with her diagnostics. She spends time to discuss treatment options and is not pushy at all. A year ago my dog Shelby had a knee injury, we saw a vet in the vacation are that we were staying. They recommended a very expensive procedure to correct the problem. I hesitated came home and consulted Dr. Zak. She confirmed that my research on google said that the prceesure is for dogs over 40lbs ... Since Shelby weighed 26 I had felt that it was a bit over the top. Dr zap recommended a orthopedic surgeon and the proceedure was 2000. Less than the other vet. Within 2 weeks Shelby was back jumping on the couch ans going up and down stairs. I can't thank Dr. Zak enough for her recommendations. The office is very clean and you feel right a home. I appreciate the Dr. And staff at Hamilton Plaza; they are the best!"
