I always receive the best service from Lincoln Avenue Vets! They're the greatest! My most recent visit was to Jay, the Groomer; Jay is sooo awesome, and always does a superb job with my Golden Retriever, Kona. He's a perfectionist, and it shows!
I am a new puppy mom, have never had a pet before and this facility calmed my nerves and informed me all I need to know. The staff was very friendly and supportive from my first call to set an appointment to leaving the facility after the appointment
LAVC has been our vet clinic since we moved to San Jose in 2001. The level of care provided is second to none. The doctors and staff are friendly and compassionate. I always feel welcome when we visit.
Prompt and courteous in the midst of our pandemic.
For the past 9 years we have trusted the doctors and staff here to take care of our animals and they have not only cared for our animals, they have helped us humans through the ups and downs of having animals. We love everyone at Lincoln Ave. Vets!
Considering the chaos life has become and we're concerned of our pet, Lincoln Vet from first call to come in through whole process stayed calm caring and professional. Our Roxy was well taken care of. Thank you
I called when I arrived, very shortly after a technician came to card took my dog, gave him his shot, and brought back. Done so quick and safely. Love Lincoln Ave. Vet, staff and Doctors are wonderful.
Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable. My dog loves coming there and is treated lovingly by all staff.
We love you guys. Even the poodles aren't freaked out..... too much 😉
You treat my dogs and my son and I with a warm and welcome familiarity. You have helped us in ways that clearly help us to keep our dogs healthy and happy. Thank You!
Top Quality We have been clients for over forty years and ; have felt our pets have gotten top-quality compassionate care here.
I recommend Lincoln Ave. Vet to anyone who asks me about needing a vet. You guys are wonderful, as usual. Lincoln Ave has been my vet clinic for 27 years and shall continue to be. Thank you.
Always professional and friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful vets! Love Dr. Bowden. Jay the groomer does an excellent job with our 3 doggies!
I have used Lincoln Avenue Vet for over 40 years. The exemplary service and expertise are profound and constant. I have relocated, but will continue to trek over the hill to ensure my dog's health and happiness. I thank the doctors and technicians
I absolutely love Jay. He’s the best groomer in town. The care he displays in his work really shows. I will never take Cosmo any where else for grooming. Thank you Jay!
My granddaughter brings her cat to the doctors & she is extremely happy with the care they have received. I bring my dog in for grooming & I am completely happy with Jay & the front office workers.
Everyone at LAVC is always courteous, friendly, helpful, efficient regardless of type of appointment - from general check-up to an emergency to grooming to prescription/food pick up.
I have brought all of our pets here for over 20 years. The doctors and staff have always taken wonderful care of our dogs and cats!
The staff are always friendly and courteous and are excellent at remembering their patients which makes us feel valued as pet parents.
We love Dr. Nagel! Everyone there has been good to our baby, we just ESPECIALLY love the care and attention Dr. Nagel gives our precious baby. Thanks Dr. Nagel, for always being so kind and patient! <3 All of you are wonderful. : )
All the Vets and staff are wonderful! They are excellent at providing advice and are great with my two dogs and cat. I have recommended them to several people. Everyone is helpful, patient and kind. A well run clinic.Thank you so much.
Thank you Lincoln Ave Clinic as all your staff was very friendly, attentive and I received valued customer service. Dr, Nurse and reception staff very friendly and informative. We will be back and I'm so appreciative for your services.
All the staff are kind and knowledgeable. I and Bella especially like the vet tech as well as the vet.
Lincoln Vet is the best - All my animals are seen there. Prompt service, easy appointments and staff is very responsive and helpful. Good Job
Every employee demonstrates their care for animals. Each vet demonstrates their knowledge and professionalism. Your rates are competitive, but reasonable. Staff works with me to make sure I understand issues, and to work with my schedule.
We came from a different vet with our previous dog. I could feel the difference from the moment I walked in with our new puppy. I felt welcomed and at home.
Just in for a flu shot. All went well. Thanks!
Great service! All our pets have no problems going inside or cooperating with the vet or vet teck. Our groomer is very talented and takes pride in his work
We are always greeted quickly by front desk staff, and escorted into an exam room. We seem to wait a long while for the doctor to see us.
Dr. Bowden is explains my cat's condition in language I can understand. She approaches the illnesses by providing me options. Follow-up is amazing. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
I extremely like the service and care of all the staff I met during my appointment on 10/16. Dr. Kang is a very patient, knowledgeable, and Chinese-speaking vet. She does resolve my pet’s problem and she gives valuable advice for us. Thanks a lot!
You guys are the best! We've been taking Zamboni to you 10 years now. While he hates the car ride, he loves you guys and so do we!
Courtesy and compassion are obvious at Lincoln
I appreciate the great customer service and feel that the vet and vet techs truly care about the well-bring of my pet.
We love Jay and appreciate the through explanation we receive when picking up our dog.
We're been coming to Lincoln Avenue Vet for more than 20 years and always have been pleased with the fine care for our dogs.That was true with our latest checkup with Dr. King,
I can usually find flea and other medications cheaper on their online store or chewy, but they automatically added it when I went in for my pets annual visit. I should have asked them for a quote, or online comparison... Next time.
I loved Dr. Nagel! He was so kind to my kitty, and funny too. Helped put us all at ease.
I can very difficult at times and they treated me very professionally
All of the above.
My dog and I love the staff & Dr. Nagel!
The girls at the Front are now sweet and very kind to my dogs. It is vital that I feel confident in their care. A few years back when our Napoleon was very old and having a Stroke in the Office, no one came to help us and... read more
Everyone shows my dog love! She loves coming here. They always squeeze us in if she gets sick.
The team at Lincoln Avenue Veterinary Clinic is always kind, caring and professional. They have cared for our two cats for many years and seen one of them through significant health issues w/great skill and compassion. We trust and appreciate LAVC.
Everyone there is very nice and the doctors are very knowledgeable and follow up if there is a problem.
We have repeatedly been seen last minute for urgent cat issues, even when no standard appointment slots have been open. Dr Nagel has remembered both of our cats issues and followed up after each appointment. The staff is courteous as well.
These guys were nothing short of amazing to our dog, Elvis. Everyone was so accommodating, beyond sweet, incredibly smart and some of the most compassionate people we've ever come across. I couldn't recommend them higher.As soon as my wife and I are ready to adopt another dog, I... read more

This is a great vet clinic. Been bringing my dog here since she was a puppy. Dr. Bowden is awesome, with decades of experience, and really knows how to handle a big dog.
The team at Lincoln Ave have done a wonderful, diligent and considerate job of caring for our 2 cats over the last three years. From check-ups and vaccines to the hardest of goodbyes, they have been compassionate, professional and understanding throughout and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
We’ve seen Dr. Kang once and already recommended her to a friend!
I've been taking my babies to Lincoln Ave. Vet for nearly 10 years, and we've mainly seen Dr. Bowden, but Dr. Kang, and the other vets are very, very helpful and knowledgeable.
There was no waiting around. we had a 3:00 appointment and our dog was seen at 3:00. Fast and professional service. Thanks!!!
The care everyone showed my dog was very nice and made me relax.
I have good vets, tolerable vets and very bad ones that I should never have returned to. Lincoln Ave. Provides excellent care from all staff members, and at a reasonable price.
Going to the vet is no fun for the pet or the owner, sorry but seeing the doctor often means we are feeling yucky 🙁 BUT Lincoln Ave Vet makes the process as painless as possible. Everyone is friendly, genuinely cares, and the treatment is top notch!
Everyone is always so friendly and treats us like family! No concern is too small.
Our pet was attended just minutes after our arrival.
I really liked Dr Nagle, he took his time and explained everything very clearly. He seems like such a caring and nice man. My next visit is for teeth cleaning I am hoping everything is just as great as my first visit.
Lincoln Avenue Vet is a wonderful vet clinic. We've been taking our four cats and dog there for almost a decade, and we are so grateful for the help we've received. We usually see Dr. Nagel and couldn't be happier with all the care he's given our little... read more
I'm rating it a 5 because most people seem to enjoy this place! I was wondering if they care for rabbits?
Lincoln Avenue Veterinary Clinic is very accomodating and the staff are great.
Excellent, caring vets and staff.
Baloo has been stressed out after his last two grooming sessions from different groomers. After seeing Jay he came home in a good mood! He seemed really happy and he looked beautiful!
Have been coming to LAVC for over 30 years and have never had a negative experience. Everyone is great and so kind to our pets.
Lincoln Avenue Veterinary Clinic has cared for our multiple pets since it opened. Each visit whether a routine check-up or a more serious matter has been efficient, organized, compassionate.
I like that you are a small locally owned vet operation versus the large chains. Way more personal and you know how to work with dogs who hate going to a vets.
I love Dr Nagel...he is thorough, knowledgeable, and kind. The rest of the staff is great as well.
the way staff treat me & my pet most especially J as her groomer. I feel that my dog is safe under his care.
I cherish my dog and will only have him attended to by the best professionals.
they always treat our dog with affection and respect. theyre also very accommodating to our work and life schedules very happy every time we leave from our visits
Outstanding customer service. Every staff member is friendly, helpful, and clearly love animals. Both vets take time to explain everything and answer all questions. And it’s so great to have a reliable, friendly, and great groomer on site.

Great doctors ,you always get us in when we call, nice pleasant staff. Have been a client for over 20+ years. You have taken good care of our babies!
Everyone is always extremely friendly and professional. The tech's are very familiar with our two dogs and always take care not to frighten them, as a visit to the doctor is always scary.
I took my dog for the first time for her grooming and it was one of the best haircuts my dog has had. I was very happy with the work done and the prices are very reasonable.
All the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I always feel welcome and my questions are always answered in detail. The doctors always provide me with options for my dog and we work for the best solution for us and our lifestyle and budget.
Every one is so great. Zaza loves to go there. The front desk staff is the best.
Close to home, gentle and caring vet. Everyone was wonderful. Definitely recommend this place to anyone.
