From the first interaction I had on the phone with Deborah I was impressed with Heart Of Oregon. My dog Dixon was referred for evaluation and before I was able to bring him in his condition worsened and they helped coordinate with my regular vet and the emergency vet to ensure continuity of care. When I took Dixon in for his first appointment I was kindly greeted and I immediately felt welcome. Dr. Atkinson and Jessica were very friendly and helpful. They took their time to explain what was going on and answer all of my questions thoroughly. I was given the price for the procedures before they were performed which was helpful. Within an hour of leaving I recieved an email with a visit summary and all of the instructions for giving medication. I will be telling everyone about my great experience and will definitely recommend Heart of Oregon to anyone needing a veterinary cardiologist!! Thank you all so much 🙂 !!Adam
When my cat, Ru, was diagnosed with heart disease last year, I was devastated. I spoke to multiple veterinary cardiologists in the Portland area, and took Ru to several consultations. Dr. Atkinson is by far the most personable and considerate of the bunch. I was extremely impressed with her caring staff, who made Ru and I feel like family each time I called (which was so often!) or visited the office. They were ever-patient with me and all of my questions, which I really appreciated during this hard time. Dr. Atkinson was even able to make time to come to my regular veterinarian's office to treat Ru. Also, I believe she is the only cardiologist in this area that allows owners to be with their pets during exams and echos. This was so important to me!! After I finally lost Ru, I was so thankful to be able to look back on the end of her life and know she was surrounded by people who truly loved her as I did. I just cannot describe how grateful I am that Dr. Atkinson was involved in our lives. Thank you!Joe
Dr. Atkinson at Heart of Oregon was referred to me by my dog's awesome vet, Dr. Lord at Pearl Animal Hospital. Dr. Atkinson and all of the support staff are friendly and obviously love animals. Dr. Atkinson is clear about procedures, how my dog's heart is doing, and patiently answers all of my questions, providing a lot of explanation and frequently offering extra information. If your pet is in need of a cardiologist, I highly recommend Heart of Oregon.Marie
Dr. Atkinson and her team at Heart of Oregon were absolutely incredible. Even before our first visit with our four-legged fury companion, they answered all of our questions and concerns thoroughly and respectfully. Even more so, after our first visit and numerous phone calls, they continued to be there for us when we needed it most. We felt so important to them, as if we were family. The care they have given our lil one has been incredible. Thank you all for your kindness and compassion during this difficult time.Nic
The team at Heart of Oregon fit my cat into their schedule so that he wouldn't have to wait the weekend for care. They handled him professionally and kindly. Our family received a short term plan for his treatment and long term expectation for his condition. I thought this quick response to my pet may have been a professional courtesy but just a few days later Heart of Oregon saw a patient that was having a cardiac emergency within an hour of me calling for a possible appointment. Dr. Atkinson and her team's expertise is combined with compassion and kindness. They are a valuable asset to our animal community.Hope
