I have been going to Dr. Root a few years now and I have been super pleased with him and his office. I recommend them to every dog owner I see.
Dr. Root and his office staff have always been super helpful when I have any questions concerning my dog. They will go into great detail and they have always been very patient with me when I continue to ask more questions (I ask a lot of questions and the answers to those questions can get me off my current thought and onto a new one... I always drove my mother crazy as a child with too many 'what if' questions. What can I say, I am a very curious person... And Dr. Root and his staff have always been more than happy to give me all of my answers).
If you are looking for a vet, Dr. Root is the best!
A Good Experience!. I recently had to seek medical attention for a dog that was in my care. Dr. Root's clinic was not only the closest, but highly recommended by friends and acquaintances. The staff seemed very professional and caring. They were as gentle as possible with their frightened little patient while doing a preliminary exam before Dr. Root came in. I was very well impressed with Dr. Root. He ran only the tests necessary to make his diagnosis. He was very thorough in explaining test results, his diagnosis, prescribed meds and his suggestions for for follow-up care. I felt very confident with his diagnosis and treatment. BTW: The little dog was doing great within a few hours.
best vet in the area. We had already been using Dr. Root for a couple years when my dog got a weird fungal infection in her nose. He didn't stop until he found out what was wrong with her and didn't nickel and dime us to death. He is a great Dr and is willing to listen to pet owners when they have an idea. I have 3 dogs and they all see Dr Root. Won't go anywhere else!!!
Wonderful place to take your pets!. After moving to Nashville and asking around about good vets, I was referred to Dr. Root by several people. I took my 3 dogs there when they came down with bronchitis. They received treatment from another vet, but it had no effect on them. The medicine Dr. Root prescribed worked like a dream. He is very compassionate with animals, very informative, patient with answering any questions you may have, and has a great sense of humor. His office staff is the friendliest around and their waiting area is absolutely spotless! Embarrassing as it is, my dog had an accident in there once and before I even knew what happened, they had the mess cleaned up. Another thing I love about Dr. Root is that he always calls the day after to check on your pets to see how they're doing. I would highly recommend taking your pets to Dr. Root for quality care and service for your pets
You always feel like family....and of course your dog too..
My dog takes medicine for anxiety and if I'm out and and something comes up that makes her feel very anxious, all I have to do is call Dr. Root's office and since they have known my dog for along time, they can have it ready for me in minutes. They really care about your pet. No put on a show at their office....it's the real thing.
I would recommend that you give their office a try. Once you do, I don't think you will go anywhere else.
Best Veterinarian Ever.
Dr. James Root and the staff at Root Animal Clinic have been our pets'
health care and medical provider for over 7 years. During this time,
Dr. Root has treated 3 of our 6 dogs for life threatening medical
conditions with success. One dog had 2 serious medical conditions
occur simultaneously when she was only 2 years old. Dr. Root is very
knowledgeable & a great listener. His thorough approach to
determining the best for each pet has been beneficial to us in
developing proactive strategies to prevent serious health problems.
He is cost conscious and evaluates whether extra tests or procedures
will be truly beneficial, while leaving the decision to the owner. In
addition, Dr. Root has performed numerous surgeries on our dogs & cats.
Dr. Root's Staff provide valuable support in taking excellent care of
the pets left in their care. They go the extra mile in making sure
the cats & dogs are comfortable. When our new feral dog escaped while
I was taking her out of the car, Dr. Root & his entire team stopped
work to help us catch her. Dr. Root's Staff is a wonderful source
of information for all types of pet concerns.
We are fortunate to found Dr. Root & his team to provide the best
health & medical care we have ever experienced!
You and your pets are treated like family. I always wished that someone in my family was a vet so I'd know that when my pet was sick I could count on the absolute best advice and care that I could possibly have. This is EXACTLY how I feel about Dr. Root and his staff. I have 3 pets, one of which has a number of very serious health problems. I have been to several of the vet clinics in the area (Mobley, Dr. Head, Value Vet on Gallatin and in Hermitage), and I used to work for a veterinary clinic in Green Hills. I can honestly say the care provided by Dr. Root is miles above the rest. His staff is more than friendly -- they are truly some of the nicest and most caring people I have ever met -- and they always treat my pets as if they were their own. Dr. Root is extremely knowledgeable and honest and I trust him completely. The office is always super clean, and there really is just no other reason to go anywhere else! I live in Nashville and make the drive to Goodlettsville because of the fantastic care and attention we receive. I just can't say enough about how wonderful they are. If you need a vet, do yourself and your pets a favor and go see Dr. Root!
Great Place. My family has been using Dr. Root for about 40 years. The prices are very reasonable and they don't charge for unnecessary things. He and staff take pride in treating you like the #1 priority. In fact, my mother and him have remained friends to this day and she stops by just to say hi and she doesn't even have a pet.
Wonderful Caring - Best Vet in Nashville. In June 2007 at 4:59 pm, I walked in without an appointment, because my new puppy was very sick, and the vet across the street refused to see him because they were getting ready to close. Although Dr. Root's office was near closing time as well, the staff settled me in a room and they began checking out my puppy. He was diagnosed with Parvo. For eight days we went between Dr. Root's clinic in the daytime and the emergecy pet clinic during the night. He and his staff were very kind and informative, and they treated our family and puppy like they had known us forever. Thankfully our puppy survived, and I know it was in large part because of the care he received from Dr. Root and his staff. In the year since, we have been in for a couple of minor emergencies, and routine examinations for both our dog and cat, we have always recevied excellant care from everyone there. Dr. Root always calls us at home and checks on his patients. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone who wants quality care for their pet, you will not be disappointed. Dr. Root is always open to listening to your concerns and questions, his staff is equally helpful anytime you call or come in. Great place, wonderful caring people.
Most Compasionate Vet in Middle Tennessee.
THank you Dr. Root for taking care of all of my animals. Including the goats that I tried to pass off as dogs! My family loves you.
To everyone reading this. Doc doesn't always recommend the most expensive or popular treatment. He recommends only what is beneficial for your animal and your needs.
He is truly the best.!!
