Our (my) most recent visit to WRAH was to have pre-op blood drawn for our cat's upcoming surgery. WRAH makes this as painless as possible for your time by allowing you to schedule a tech appointment. I didn't have to wait long, a tech came out and took Chloe to the back, did the draw and that was it.
You can also walk-in, but I HIGHLY recommend setting up an appt. Even calling the same day when you have an idea of when you will be there is fine. We've done this a couple other times for our other cats/dogs and it worked great. I'm glad this option is available! I don't know if this is a "newer" option added this past year+, or if we just didn't realize we could do it before.
Of course, I assume if an emergency came in that needed the tech(s) we would have to wait, but that hasn't happened in the few times we've used this ability to schedule a tech appt.
Oh, ALSO a time saver - while I was there with Chloe, I also had to pickup some meds for one of our dogs. I did that, paid & "checked out" at the same time as I checked Chloe in. I mention this because in the past I waited til our cat/dog was done to check out. That can take longer since other people are being helped by that time. So, if what you are doing is a "set" price, best thing is to pay when you check-in, that way you don't have to wait again at the end.
Note - If the labs are for a surgery pre-op, they can be paid for when the surgery is done. I opted to pay for the meds only and leave the blood labs to pay with one consolidated surgery bill.
When Chloe was brought back, I was able to just leave. Great and efficient.
I wanted to post this review because "waiting time" is so important.
I don't want to leave out the folks at the front. They are all great. Helpful, unflappable and the obviously love animals! :)
The techs are the same. Even though Chloe was there for a simple blood draw, the tech didn't just dump her back out and leave. She took the time to tell me how Chloe did in the back (good info to know, since our other cat was a nightmare when they tried to take her blood. LOL).
We live up in Conifer (almost 5 years) and continue to use WRAH because they are the best vet office and hospital (unfortunately we've had to use that side of the practice also) we've ever used 25+ years.
