    We have recently started a new “survey” service. Below are all our surveys we have received so far, in 2 short months. Over 30 glowing reviews, practically all giving us a rating of 5 out of 5. Thank you to all our clients for their trust, and their thoughtful comments:

    ‘Doug’ 11/30 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: A great experience with our two dogs,a very caring and helpful staff.

    ‘Jennifer’ 12/2 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: Dr chau is a wonderful vet, my golden loves her. She really cares about animals and what is best for their well being. Highly reccomend her!

    ‘Dan’ 12/2 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: Dr. Chau is, in a word, wonderful. She has been our vet for over 3 years and we wouldn’t take our dogs anywhere else. She goes the extra mile and takes her time with them instead of just rushing through their exams. One thing we like the most is her approach to treating our dogs. She involves us and makes sure we’re ok with the treatments. Another is her use of and knowledge of alternative medicine like acupuncture and Chinese herbs. If you need a vet in the South Riding/Aldie/Stone Ridge area, you can’t go wrong with Dr. Chau.

    ‘Valerie’ 12/2 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: We wanted to make sure that our new boxer pup would feel comfortable going to the vet, and Dr. Chau and her staff did not disappoint. This is not the first pet our family has entrusted to their care and I’m sure it won’t be the last. We can’t imagine going anywhere else. Dr. Chau’s office offers a variety of important and cutting edge services including laser technology, while not forgetting holistic medicine, including acupuncture. Can’t ask for better treatment opportunities for any pet.

    ‘Georgea’ 12/5 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: I love the Dr. and the care Mickey gets but being a Senior citizen living on Social Security it took half of my check for the month. There went Christmas!

    ‘Julie’ 12/5 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: As always, Dr. Chou and her team are friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Most importantly, Dr. Chou obviously loves what she does and her “patients” love her! Dr. Chou is caring and attentive and she goes above and beyond to make you and your pet feel comfortable and well-taken care of. I recommend Family Veterinary Hospital of Stone Ridge to all of my family and friends!

    ‘Jennifer’ 12/5 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: I really enjoy taking my dog and cats to Family Vet Hospital of Stone Ridge. Both veterinarians are fantastic, caring and I believe they truly want the best for my pets. They don’t recommend excessive tests and vaccinations, which I appreciate.

    ‘Rachelle’ 12/18 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: My three cats have been going to see Dr. Chau and her team for about three years. We had a wonderful vet in Rockville and I worried when we moved to Virginia. Dr. Chau is fabulous. Every tech we talk to on the phone, via email, or in the office is super. My cats have been there for wellness visits and vaccines as well as special issues. They have always come home healthy and well-cared-for while away. My cats are on special food, which I can now also order on line through their website. I cannot recommend them enough.

    ‘Kate’ 12/18 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: All the staff really care about the animals and Dr Chau in particular is wonderful with my dogs – gentle and confident – they love her! I’ve never had a dog that was excited to go to the vet before.

    ‘Hope’ 12/19 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: This is an exceptionally good Veterinary and staff. Very clean, friendly and caring. I love them all for the great care they gave our geriatric cats and now our new kitten.

    ‘Laura’ 12/20 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: I thought everyone was very kind to me and my cats. However, I was shocked because I was going in to get their vaccines. I was SLAMMED by walking out with over $200 LESS than when I walked in! I do not plan to spend that kind of money again for simple vaccines!

    ‘Tamara’ 12/22 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: Always good caring service.

    ‘Karen’ 12/23 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: Thank you Dr Chau for helping me with my concerns for Charlotte, even though I called you right at closing time.

    ‘Mary’ 12/27 Rating out of 5: 5 Review: Very kind and thorough. Dr. Chau takes her time and doesn’t rush us. We have a very sick greyhound and she always finds the time to call us to discuss our options.

    ‘Tina’ 12/31 Rating out of 5: 4 Review: My pug is my baby! So the decision to change my vet with a 12yr old dog with multiple health issues, worried me. Dr. Chau and her staff were so friendly and helpful! They took the extra time to discuss all my concerns, just confirming my decision to change vets was the right one! Thanks again!

    Dr Chau and her staff have been wonderful with our 3 dogs, all three being special needs cases.  We love the fact that they offer so many services from basic to not so basic (acupuncture, laser, physical therapy).  They are caring and patient and always provide guidance and understanding.  When it came time to say goodbye to one of our girls they made it as bearable as possible.  We highly recommend them for the care of family pets.

    Dr. Chau of Family Veterinary Hospital of Stone Ridge is a top notch veterinarian who takes a holistic approach to the health of your pet. If you are reading this review you probably treat your pet as a member of your family and I can give this practice the highest marks for doing so as well. When I brought my sheltie in (for what would be diagnosed as pancreatitis), Dr. Chau looked over the entire animal and immediately noticed some issues with weight distribution that will come to affect his health later on. She had excellent and creative suggestions for how to mitigate future issues that might arise. My sheltie had exploratory surgery on the evening I brought him in and while it was never mentioned I believe that Dr. Chau stayed into the night to make sure it was accomplished with minimum delay. Family Veterinary Hospital of Stone Ridge is a small family owned practice. Even if you accumulate a large bill you will be expected to pay it in full immediately. Larger practices often have the luxury of working with you to get an extra day to pay your bill but that is not feasible at this office. This is not unusual for small firms, but you should be aware of it before seeking care here. They are very passionate about what they do at Family Veterinary Hospital of Stone Ridge. Most of my sheltie’s test results were accomplished in house with minimum delay and it appears they have extensive recovery facilities for your pet beyond a simple surgical setup. I was allowed to visit my pet back in the recovery area and was impressed with both the staff and equipment. The prices for services are in line with what you would expect from any veterinary facility. What makes them a five star review for me is the passion for your pet’s health – both in healing the immediate issue as well as the ‘big picture’ concerns and recommendations identified from a thorough examination of your pet.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my review – Ken C

    I take both my dogs here. My older dog gets acupuncture and a laser treatment for her joints. It’s a bit of a hike for me, as I live in Arlington, but it’s completely worth it. It’s Eastern and Western medicine – The BEST of both worlds! Dr. Chau is wonderful, as is her staff. I only wish they could clone themselves and move into an Arlington office ;-) Just an update. Dr. Chau goes beyond the call of duty, even emailing my dogs test results on her days off. She has helped both my dogs so much. I’m very grateful.

    I was frustrated with another local vet, who over the years has become more concerned with their bottom line than what is best for my cats. After my 14 year old cat became seriously ill, I decided it was time to find a new vet who would take a holistic approach to diagnosing and treating him. Dr. Chau is by far one of the most compassionate, knowledgeable, and up-front veterinarians I have met to date. She has made a tremendous investment to in equipment and technology that few other local vets (if any) can offer without having to send you to a specialist. And unlike the feeling that I kept getting at my previous vet, her focus is on the best possible care for my cat, and not what will yield the most income. Though we are still not sure what the diagnosis or prognosis is for my cat (it is pretty complicated), the experience that I have had thus far at Family Vet has been wonderful. For anyone in the Aldie area who is frustrated with their current pet care, or for new pet owners who are evaluating the vet choices in the area, I highly recommend Dr. Chau.

    By far, Dr. Chau is one of the best vets we’ve ever seen. She is very personable and really takes the time to show she cares about the health and well-being of your pet. She has the latest technology available which is a comforting thought should my dog ever require any type of advanced treatment. With a background in canine rehabilitation, she is the first vet EVER to check my dogs mobility and flexibility, and give me advice on how to strengthen her core to ensure she stays mobile as she ages. Staff is very friendly and the facility is clean and bright. Her fees are very fair and certainly comparable to the other vets in the area. If this is the first time you are looking for a vet or you are not happy with your current provider, we highly recommend Dr. Chau – you will not be disappointed!

    We so much appreciate the thoroughness and care Dr. Chau spent assessing and treating our pug. We have spent much time and money trying various vets in the area for someone knowledgeable with our pug’s respiratory difficulties. Dr. Chau takes a holistic approach to treating our dog, which has helped her (and us) tremendously. I highly recommend visiting Family Vet of Stone Ridge. Everyone I’ve met there has been so friendly, professional, and caring with all of us.

    I am beyond happy with the staff and Dr. Chau as they are so polite, willing to help, and very concerned for the well being of you and your pet My 1 and half year old pit was very sick, vomiting on the hour every hour, I took him to see Dr.Chau and she explained everything very thoroughly to me and advised me of what was be done and how they would approach a path if was to come to it That same day Luke was feeling better I was able to take him home and now his sister is happy he is back Besides that care; nail trimmings, vaccinations, and routine check-ups have all been a breeze with Dr. Chau. and her staff. I would not recommend any other!
