" I would like to give the highest praise to Dr. Martin and Dr. Martin Jr. of the Canarsie Animal Hospital. I have been a client since 1985. Dr. Martin Sr. was my first vet. He truly cares for the animals as if they were his own. I have a multiple cat household which at times can be stressful, but Dr. Martin always reassures me that my babies would be okay - and they were. Some years later, Dr. Martin Jr. joined the practice and he too was just as wonderful with the animals. Very professional. They are truly angels from heaven - and I highly recommend them to all my friends and family."

"We have been bringing our dogs to Canarsie Animal Hospital since the 80's. Dr. Martin Sr. was always a very caring vet. He knew how to handle every situation and we were always confident that he would take great care of our dogs. In our book he was the "Greatest". Then one day Dr. Martin told us he was planning to retire soon and his son was going to take over the business. What? No more Dr. Martin Sr.? Now what? To be honest, we were somewhat concerned and upset but we decided to give Dr. Martin Jr. a chance. There is an old saying that goes, "like father, like son". This most assuredly holds true in this case. Dr. Martin Jr. has definitely followed in his father's footsteps. He is gentle and caring with our dogs and we trust him as much as we trusted his father which I have to say is a lot because we trusted Dr. Martin Sr. 100%. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Canarsie Animal Hospital to anyone. They have always been tops in our mind. We have been going there for quite a long time and we will still continue. Thank you Drs. Martin Sr. and Jr for taking such wonderful care of our dogs."

"Dr. Martin has been taking care of my dog since I got her. I am very satisfied and grateful that he is my veterinarian. He is very professional, soft spoken and very considerate in dealing with his clients. He does a thorough examination and explains why certain procedures need to be done. I have nothing negative to say about Dr. Martin or his son Dr. Martin Jr."

    "I have known Dr Martin Sr almost 30 years; I have always been satisifed and have complete trust, and Faith in him. He has helped me and my Furbabies through good times, and bad times- he has saved
    my petS life several times over. Now that his Son is a vet- he is just exactly like his Dad- caring, competent, knowledgable, very personable. I trust no other vetS- I hold them both in the highest
    regards. They have my complete devotion, loyalty, respect.... " Stephanie Gray

    I discovered Canarsie Animal Hospital on the internet I would say approximately 3 years ago and decided to give it a try since it was close and convenient to me. Much to my surprise I found that I
    had discovered EXACTLY the kind of vet practice I wanted to bring my (Maltese) "Romeo Love" to. Both Dr.'s Martin are very special!! They provide competent optimal service and deliver it with the
    highest level of care that assures me that they love my Romeo just as much as I love him. They're incredible!!! I would HIGHLY recommend them both!!!
