Customer Testimonials

I am so thankful for Dr. Simon and his staff. They are wonderful to Lomax and so kind and professional to me. I highly recommend!


Dr Simon is wonderful! He's always taken very good care of my Scrappy. The entire staff is helpful and we can't wait to see the new renovations.


I have always felt that Dr. Simon is not only incredibly effective as a vet, but that he genuinely likes the animals who are his patients. I currently have two cats under his care and initially had a third who passed away. He has always been very clear and informative with the course of treatment in each case when I've had to bring someone in. Right now, he has a great staff as well and they make an overall fantastic team. There have, in the past, been a couple of partner vets who were capable but I didn't feel as comfortable with. But Dr. Simon himself is the best.


Our most recent visit was very good. I always find Dr. Simon to be very knowledgable - caring - and patient. I always have pleasant experience with any members of his staff and everything is explained to me. I really think that my most recent visits with Little Squeak have helped us to take better care of her


I have been delighted and impressed with the service and attitude and medical attention my cat, Ed Feder, received in the Animal Hospital of Chelsea. Dr. Simon is an exceptional vet with exceptional attitude and compassion to animals. The supporting staff have been very friendly and helpful and attentive. Highly recommended.


Both the vet and the assistant were extremely helpful and acommodating getting an urgent care appointment for my dog on the morning I called. The vet was lovely with my dog, gentle an caring and was good at explaining everything to me, including follow up care.


We cant imagine going anywhere else. dr simon is so knowledgeable about bulldogs. after going to Dr simon for five year i have to say we know that dr Simon is not only is the best but also truly cares about animals. My puppy had demodectic mange and most of my friends dogs that had this were recommended to do all kinds of harsh treatments. Dr. Simon suggested we do nothing and that most of us want to do something to treat it but that he wanted to wait for it to get better first on its own. and it did! Most vets I feel would do unnecessary things to rack up the bill but Dr. Simon is always honest and does what really is best for the animals.

We were referred by another bulldog owner and actually switched from another vet nearby. I love my bullbabies and they are healthy and happy thanks to animal hospital of Chelsea!


I have been taking my small dog here his whole life - at this point over 8 years. This is a no frills vet. The office is modest and dated. The staff is small (although I have never found scheduling to be a problem). All of which keep the pricing competitive for a NYC vet.

I have found Dr. Simon to be great for us. For example, how I first found him: when other vets tried to put my doctor under to have his baby teeth extracted in surgery (high risk and high cost for a puppy), Dr. Simon suggested a dog bone and a tug and that took care of it. He has a common sense approach. We have come here for both routine and urgent care and left confident every time.
