This was the most positive vet experience I've ever had! Entering the vet office, there was a sense of calm &
friendliness which was great for me and great for my dog who has anxiety issues. The staff and doctor made me
feel like I had the greatest dog ever. They treated my dog like a queen which eased her normally tense self in
the presence of vets.
Dr. Sitler was thorough and spent time listening and addressing all of my questions and issues. My dog was having
many health issues, but Dr. Sitler patiently listened, wrote notes, and explained my options. After hearing the
options, I made choices to fit my budget and improved my dog's health.
You don't find great vets and vet staff like this too often!
Outstanding Veterinary Care
by Alison M.
Belmont Shore Veterinary Hospital
The care your precious companions will receive at this hospital is second to none. I have been a client for
15 years and even after moving 26 miles away I still return for the care of my 4 cats. The doctors are
knowledgeable diagnosticians, compassionate caregivers, and wonderful when following through on calling to
inform me of lab work, etc. They even go the extra mile just to call to see how my pets are doing with their
In addition they have an outstanding board certified radiologist (who I have had to use several times over the
years) come to the clinic once a week to do ultrasounds and confer on cases requiring x-ray!
They go the extra mile in every way. In addition the staff is really great. They even remember my pet's names,
and each one of them loves animals but are good with the owners as well. I completely trust the entire staff to
give my pets loving care even when my sweet pets are not happy about it. The clinic is a clean, state-of-the-art
facility. I highly recommend this hospital without hesitation.
Very clean office

All of the doctors at the Belmont Shore Veterinary Hospital are great. The offices are clean and well maintained.
They are a bit pricier than other vets, but they are well worth it.

I have to agree with the other good reviews here. I'm very happy with the care my pets and I have recieved.
The wait isn't usually very long, and the reception area is very comfortable. And they always have cookies for
Surrounded by nice restaraunts in case you want to grab lunch while you wait. Parking is a breeze.
All 5 of my furry kids go here. I couldn't be happier with the service I receive. The staff are always friendly

Dr. Sitler and her staff are wonderful! I have followed her for years and I am so happy that she is now at
Belmont Shore Veterinary Hospital. It is the nicest place she has worked yet! I drive 20 minutes just to make
sure my pets are seen by Dr. Sitler.?
I recently took my two kitties to see Dr. Sitler at Belmont Shore Veterinary Hospital. It was a wonderful
experience. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Dr. Sitler did a complete examination of both of my
pets and clearly stated all of her recommendations. I was unable to do all of the things she recommended because
of some financial concerns but both Dr. Sitler and her staff were very respectful of this. They helped me use the
funds I had in the best way possible. I would encourage all pet owners to visit their office!

Belmont Shore Veterinary Hospital
I'm super picky about my veterinarian: I need know that they listen, care, and understand.
Belmont Shore Veterinary Hospital is well above par with regards to my requirements for a veterinary clinic.
The waiting area is large and immaculately clean. The receptionists are warm and attentive. Inevitably, one of the
staff will come around and give my dogs attention and treats while we wait for our appointment. The vet techs
are thorough and personable. The veterinarians are equally thorough with their examinations and questions --
additionally they are kind, bright, and professional.
Belmont Shore Veterinary Hospital fees run a little high, but they are still competitive -- then again, one
really can't put a price on confidence and comfort when it comes to one's beloved pets.
Long Beach, CA
We've been using this vet since it was located on 2nd street.
They are always great with our animals and generally don't keep you waiting much.
After not accepting new clients for several years they've added 2 add'l vets both of whom are also great.

I want to thank you all very much. Today Dr. Dina Legum evaluted Moka and it was a very nice meeting. I
appreciated the way she handled Moka as well as her mannerism with me. I left with clear understanding and
without any unanswered questions. I would gladly see her again for any need of my kitties and your entire
staff is friendly, attentive and supportive.
Thank you all for taking the anxiety out of the whole "sick kitty" event. I hope you all enjoy a lovely day.
From Bob and Moka, many thanks. ~ Barbra Longiny

The staff and doctors have always been extremely thorough in both their treatments and their explanations.
They have exhibited nothing but patience and answered all my detailed questions.
On my last visit for a surgery Jessica called me at home over the holiday weekend to make sure the recovery was
going well. This blew my mind. Amazing service.
Clearly the expectations set by the doctors at this facility are very high and the entire team delivers.

"My overall experience was excellent. The staff is great and the doctor is outstanding. They are caring and
sympathetic. I feel like they are not trying to get us to do a bunch of test or sell us things we don't need,
which has been my experience at other places."
"We love Belmont Shore Vet. Their staff is extremely professional and helpful, their offices are clean and
welcoming and their prices are fair.
They have an online "pet portal" which allows you to view your pets' health records, where you can set reminders to
be emailed to you so that you don't miss any due dates, and where you
can request appointments.
They are extremely attentive and take care to call you following a procedure to make sure your pet is doing well.
We highly recommend them"
Dear Dr. Sitler and All the Wonderful Crew at BSVH
Thank you so much for making me feel better. I am a whole new person and grateful for your caring touch!

I am very lucky.

"Dear Dr. Sitler & Dr. Frank,
Your talented staff were extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I felt very welcome.
Thank you for saving Nitro's life! Your staff was/is amazing! Please thank everyone in your practice for staying later than they should
have and for taking such wonderful care of Nitro. Not just this time but every time we have come in they treat my little dude like he
is family and I appreciate that so much. You have really caring people working there.
I could go on and on about how I owe you my life and how I wish that I could do something more to show you how much you and your entire
staff mean to me but I am hoping this letter will explain in short that I feel lucky to have found such a wonderful, caring and educated
doctor. With all of our hearts and love to you and everyone that is part of Belmont Shore Veterinary Hospital. Thank you for the life
of my kid Nitro Lambert.
