  1. Almost impossible to get appointment. Very inconvenient. The military obviously needs more staff so that they can keep up with demand.

  2. Leaving Okinawa in a few days and a typhoon put us behind on outprocessing. Another typhoon is supposed to hit on the day of our appointment. Took 45 minutes to get ahold of someone- only to be told they won’t reschedule because of no open appointments. RUDELY told to go off base. Only been able to get 2 appointments here in over a year. Horrible hours and horrible service! Especially for mil to mil who have trouble getting appointments.

  3. Well, if we had absolutely any better option, I would go there instead. We expressed multiple times that we did not want a sick call exam for our dog and that we just needed to get their updated lepto shots. Got there for the shots and were still charged for a sick call exam. Complete BS and they are going out of their way to rake military families over the coals when we have limited other options on this island. Absolutely disgusting.

  4. I have been at the Vet clinic twice (2 years and only 2 appointments). One front desk employee was very disrespectful. We were told to call back in two weeks. My husband called and was told to call back the following day, the books were still not open. I called the clinic and was told that there were no appointments for June, that the books were completely filled. Not only do the hours not accommodate active duty members (mil to mil) with pets, but it is very hard to get appointments.

  5. Tried to schedule my dog's rabies vaccination and was denied because "it's PCS season and we are not scheduling any appointments other than Health Certificates." Now, I absolutely understand the importance of that but I can't even come in for 10 minutes for my dog to get his rabies vaccine? This was after I had to call 6 times before anyone picked up. The staff is fantastic at what they do but getting to see them is an absolute nightmare every time. No one mentioned this when I was in last month

  6. The "user fee" I was charged in the amount of $2.00 is absurd! I requested my canines medication via email, arrived to the clinic to pay for and pick up my pets meds, only to be mislead by the veterinarian issuing my dog medication that I had previously paid over $100 in re-examination fees to be switched from. I was charged $9.11 and refunded only $7.11 after being told that I was being charged the addt'l $2 for "staff using the computers" aka "user fee." ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
