I have gone to Dr. Kohnen for almost a decade - before he even started this practice. He has one of the top practices in San Antonio and keeps up on developments in medicine and equipment. He will say if something is not his expertise and will send you to a specialist. I do rescues at times and have a number of dogs and cats. Some have had some conditions requiring expensive tests. He discusses the pros and cons of testing if you ask. If your animal is elderly or very ill, then he is not aggressive in treatment or testing - always keeping in mind the quality of the animal's life.As noted with other reviews, he is not cheap - neither is he the most expensive. But you are getting an excellent vet with an A&M education, who has kept his education current.His practice is also not a pharmacy for people who are not clients. If you do not intend to bring your animal for annual exams, he will not sell you meds as was noted by another reviewer. I had a diabetic cat and diabetic dog and never had any difficulty getting insulin. My dog lived with diabetes for 8 years and I consider Dr. Kohnen very well versed in treating diabetic animals.I would add to all this that Dr. Kohnen and his staff are charming, friendly and helpful. His vet techs are great as is the groomer on premises.

I have been bringing my dog to Northern Oaks for about two years now. I am very pleased with the amount of care he recieves when i bring him in. All of the assistants and receptionists are so happy to see him. Whenever i have a concern or question, all three of the doctors are quick to reassure me in whatever the situation may be. Most of the time it turns out to just be me being a paranoid pet owner, which brings me a lot of relief! This staff makes the health and well being of their patients priority and will always find time to meet their needs, whether its a nail trim or an emergency! They have a life-long client with me, thanks to their compassion and knowledge. The clinic was recently remodeled and looks top notch! Not to mention it is the only animal hospital i have been to that doesnt smell like animals! Whenever i am there, all staff is working diligently to ensure that there are no accidents or messes left of any kind. These are just a few of the many things that set this place apart from all of the rest. I definitely recommend Northern Oaks to any person who truly cares about their pets and wants the best care for them. Go by and see for yourself!!!
I would trust Rob Cary with my two dogs on absolutely any occasion. For over two years, I've been taking my dogs to this facility for their grooming appointments, and I have also used Rob Cary's boarding services. After grooming, my dogs come back clean and smelling wonderful. When we board them, they are obviously well taken care of and return to us as happy as ever. In fact, one of my babies even ran back to the tech that brought her out to me because she enjoyed her time so much.Every staff member I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with has been courteous, kind, and above all respects and loves my dogs as their own. I would not hesitate entrusting the two furry loves of my life to Rob Cary for any of their grooming or boarding needs. I have had nothing but good experiences! If I did, I am confident the team at Rob Cary would do everything they could to make the situation right.Thank you for taking such good care of my furbabies!
Wow! I just had lunch at La Tuna and it was great! I had the Chicken Sandwich. There was 4 in our party and we all enjoyed our selections very much. The food was hot, fresh and full of flavor. Looking at the other diners' dishes, I'd have to say everything looked great. The portions were generous. The service was wonderful as well. We had a great lunch and will definitely be back to try out some other dishes. It does get a little crowded at lunchtime, but we got there just before the crowd came in. There is not too much seating indoors, but there are plenty of tables outside in the shade of the pecan trees. Even at a little less than 100 degrees, people outside seemed to enjoy themselves. The shade of the trees really helped making it tolerable.
