I love Georgetown vet! Both Dr. Handley and Dr. Fietz are great, the techs are always incredibly gentle with the animals, and the receptionists are timely and friendly. Both vets have always been on time or very close to being on time for my appointments and I’ve never had to wait long to check out either. I was worried moving from D.C. to Charlottesville for law school that my pets’ care might be compromised because of the smaller city but I’ve found the care at Georgetown vet to be very comparable to that of the vet I used and used to work for in D.C. Georgetown vet also has very reasonable prices in my opinion and I’ve found the doctors to be both knowledgeable and incredibly kind. Great vet if you live in the Charlottesville area!
Drs. Daniel and Virginia Flynn established the Georgetown Veterinary Hospital shortly after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine back in 1959. It has remained a family owned and operated practice since then... more than 50 years! We realize that people make the practice. Our dedicated staff is composed of compassionate animal health professionals, the majority of whom have been Georgetown Veterinary Hospital team members for decades.
