What Our Pet Parents Say
The technicians are wonderful, caring.and knowledgeable. Dr. Stephen Zawie is excellent and takes the time to explain everything to you. When he says he will get back to you, he does. You can tell he loves what he does. I highly recommend Bensonhurst Veterinary Care.
Dr. Zawie and his staff are the kindest and most capable caregivers I know. They saw me through a very difficult time with my cat Bruce and were amazing and in it with me 100%. Dr. Zawie was always just a phone call away and was tireless in helping us find the right treatment and advice. Ethical and knowledgeable, I would never trust my "grumpy old man" to anyone else.
I have never met a more caring vet than Dr Zawie. He literally took me in from the street before clinic even opened after I was crying because my dog just had a health episode occur. Within an hour I had a plan of action, reassurance, and support. He always follows up after our visits, always answers emails, and is just honestly the best I’ve found.
Been coming here since my baby boy was 4 (he's 10 now) Only place of that figured out my son's allergies. Thank you so much ! Dr Zimora
This was my first visit after just getting my English Bull Dog from a shelter and having a few issues that needed attention. The staff and DVM Renee Porfido were very attentive and took the time to evaluate "Buster" thoroughly, explaining I wasn't too familiar with his personality yet and did not know how he was going to react after all of the recent traveling and prodding. We discussed the circumstances and the attention needed after a brief exam and a course of action was presented with options! Let's just say Buster left there happier than when he came in. Thanks for taking the time to answer all my questions and sharing your expertise!
This place has the #1 Vets in NYC period. Thank you for taking care of my beagle Brooklyn. She loves coming here.
Friendly, fast service for my pet. Was taken in immediately when I got there for our initial appointment, and was headed home again in less than 30 minutes.
My baby has been a loyal patient of Dr. Zawie for 12 years now (pup is currently 14). I have had negative experiences before with a previous vet that worked at the clinic so we always request appointments with Dr. Zawie. It has gotten more difficult to get an appt with him but the key is to be flexible in time (mainly weekdays). There is no one I trust more for the health of my baby than Dr. Zawie. Unfortunately, my baby is nearing his last days and Dr. Zawie has really gone above and beyond in answering all my non-stop questions. He patiently listens to all your concerns and will plan a course of action that best fits your schedule. I have never had a problem with getting back test results or felt I was being swindled by cost of care. Yes, they tend to be a little more expensive, but compared to the vets we have tried in the past, Bensonhurst Vet Care is worth it. Thank you, Dr. Zawie, for taking care of Oliver through the years.
Hands down the best vet in NY. Not only is Dr. Zawie a caring and gentle vet but he's actually got fantastic people skills for us pet parents. His office and office staff are excellent, kind and responsive. We have been with Dr. Zawie for 7 full time years and are so grateful for his care.
