I bring my two Chihuahuas to First Avenue Veterinary Hospital for all of their care. The staff is always courteous and helpful. I love the flexibility of scheduling appointments online (and they have always squeezed us in when someone is sick). They even send me text/email reminders when the Chi’s vaccines and meds are due. Most of all, I feel confident that Dr. Poller and the rest of the team are taking the absolute best care of my little guys. It has been so great to have them right here in the neighborhood.

What a great experience!

Thank you so much for taking care of my guy Buddy when he got sick suddenly. From start to finish it was a great experience. It’s so nice to know that we have a good doggy-doctor in the neighborhood. Dr. Poller and the staff were super attentive and considerate!

I definitely recommend this vet and will be back for routine visits.

Dr. Poller and everyone at First Avenue Veterinary Hospital are wonderful. I was dealing with a behavioral problem with my cat which was getting serious as well as dangerous. She is the ONLY one who ever addressed the problem and came up with a care plan for me as well as my cat of 7 years. I would recommend this practice without reservation and thank her as well as her great and caring staff.

The staff is great. Very personable and knowledgeable. The facilities are clean and spacious. While our dogs aren’t terribly keen on making visits to the vet, Dr. Poller and the team make it a positive experience for both humans and pets!

Excellent Doctor and staff!!!! Dr. Poller took good care of my pet “Bark Vader”. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She made my pet feel comfortable during his examination. She took her time to answer my questions and address any of my concerns. Examination and vaccines fee’s are reasonably priced. I highly recommend Dr. Poller and staff!!!

Dr. Poller treats my English Bulldog and is incredible – as is the staff. She is not only a great Doctor but also very compassionate and takes time to explain everything and all options. The staff always follows up to see how my dog is doing the day after the appointment. Great experience – highly recommend.

New owner Dr. Poller is the best. I have followed her to her First Avenue Veterinary Hospital as she is the only person in the city I trust with my two precious cats. Patient and kind- she is a true animal lover who has always been willing to answer questions and calm my panic whenever I think something is wrong (usually I’m just a crazy cat mom and nothing is wrong at all. Again- Dr. Poller is very patient…).

The staff is wonderful and friendly. The space is bright, clean and welcoming. I recommend Dr. Poller and First Avenue Veterinary Hospital to everyone I know and anyone who may be looking for a vet for their furry pals.

In all honesty I was hesitant about going to this vet after the prior ownership and all the negative reviews I heard. I was SO happy when I got there. Everyone was so sweet, and so kind, and helpful. They treated Hampton so well, and me – pregnant with twins – just as well. They got in early one day when they knew I had to be there early, and did everything they could to make us both comfortable. It was professional and clean, and I will go back in a heartbeat when necessary. After a decade of going to one vet in NYC – I officially have a new go-to for my pets.

Whole health is now under new ownership and I couldn’t be happier to know it’s Dr. Poller. Dr. Poller is an amazing vet who has cared for my animals for years ! My first cat had to be put down about a year and a half ago due to cancer and despite the horrible feeling you get as an owner, she made me feel better about the situation. Just knowing my beloved cat was under good hands made it a relief. She has also taken care of my female cat who is asthmatic and has skin problems. She used to have an asthma attack everyday & her fur was falling off. Thanks to her practice my cat is better than ever! Dr. Poller prescribed medications for her conditions and we have been able to control her skin issues and breathing issues. My newest edition was neutered by her as well and the incision healed beautifully. She continues to be my cats’ vet and will always be. Definitely recommend Whole Health now that she is the owner !

I never leave reviews but this place is AMAZING. This is the second time this year I’ve come in for an emergency with my dog and each time everyone has been so accommodating and helpful. The doctors and staff are so friendly and professional. They took great care of my dog and followed up the next day after our visit. They are so great I travel all the way from Brooklyn

Dr Poller is the new owner here and she is amazing.

She is incredibly thorough with our dog and answers all our questions, always patiently explaining vaccines, procedures, training tips and more. She absolutely loves animals and is great with our doggo. Not only that, she allowed us in for an emergency appointment when our dog hurt her paw, and encouraged us to email her as a follow up with any questions or concerns we had – completely free of charge. Of course we emailed and she responded incredibly quickly with wonderful advice.
The entire team here is just lovely. From reception through to the vet assistants, everyone loves animals and is always friendly and smiling. I can’t recommend this vet highly enough!
