 "The veterinarians and staff at Westside Animal Hospital are absolutely the best! Everyone is so courteous and professional. They go out of their way to make all of their patients (and humans) feel like they are their number 1 priority." -Fonda P

"Dr. Wilkes and the staff at Westside have been taking care of my fur family for 20 years... 5 cats, 2 dogs.. Can't wait to see what the next 20 years shall bring! Special thanks for helping spread the word about Apollo-Mallo's disappearance!" - Amy G.

"Best vet in Augusta!! We've taken every one of our dogs to Gary Wilkes and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else!" -Bryan A.

"We have used Dr. Wilkes for over 25 years and would not even consider taking our pets to anyone else. In emergencies we have had to go to 24 clinics but all the follow up was done by Dr. Wilkes. I don't think you can find a more careing doctor for your pets, honestly. I wish I could have taken my child to him!!!"     -Mark C.

"Sooo much better priced than St. Francis Animal Hospital. We had taken our pets there for many years and just recently transferred to Dr. Wilkes. Care and service excellent. No "extras" in lab work we never ordered and didn't need which occurred at St. Francis." - Marlene J. 


"one of my dogs has increasingly been very anxious and somewhat traumatized by past vet visits. I decided it was time to make a change and took both my k9 kids to see Dr. Wilkes. After arriving, my lil boy was initially apprehensive, but within moments, he stopped quivering and settled down nicely. After his brief exam and tests, he was returned to me in the exam/briefing room, where, instead of shivering behind my legs, he alternated between gazing out the floor length window and rolling on the floor, just his normal mischief rather than an utterly frightened dog. This spoke volumes to me. Dr Wilkes and I discussed his exam before moving on to my 2nd dog. Everyone there was friendly and fully answered any questions I had. Dr. Wilkes seems to genuinely care about his patients and their parent(s). My dogs responded warmly to him, again speaking volumes to me. I was a bit uncomfortable with my dog having to leave the room for testing, as I have always been with him in the room, but this is perhaps for the best so that he doesn't get to "play me" and we don't feed off each other's energy, making the exam quicker and less stressful for him in the long run. Was also disappointed to find out that they test separately for lyme and HW whereas previously, a 3n1 test accomplished this, but, that is a very minor issue. The lobby is big enough that patients and their parent(s) are not squeezed in too close together, in addition there is an exit route opposite the lobby, both lessening the opportunity for patient conflicts. You can feel from the moment you arrive that you are welcome there, overall a very pleasing experience."

"We have been going to Dr. Wilkes with our pets for 20 years. He has always been patient and taken the time to explain everything to us. He listens and is empathetic with all of his furry patients and their parents! He is very forward thinking and makes suggestions that make sense. His staff is always friendly, helpful and great with all of our "children"." -Mandy F. 

"We recently adopted a puppy from Molly's Militia. They recommended Dr. Wilkes as a smart, well-priced vet. (I've heard St. Francis is very expensive.) Everyone is very nice. It was easy to schedule an appointment. The waiting room time was very short. My pup looooves Dr. Wilkes even though he gets scared anytime he's somewhere unfamiliar. Dr. Wilkes was patient and answered all of my "first time mom" questions. I've only been in for vaccines and well visits, but I like Westside Animal Hospital a lot."   -Rachel N.
