To Dr. Sandler and Staff:
I wanted to express many thanks for all of your years of loving service and kindness extended to me and my “family” of pets in our times of need.

Dear Dr. Sandler-
My husband and I want to thank you so much for your advice and care about the little Westie puppy that we were supposed to adopt.
You will be happy to hear that the next day I went to Petco in Boca Raton where they have a Humane Society Adoption program. We adopted the most adorable 10 week old rescue puppy. He is healthy and he is happy- and why not? Our little puppy hit the “lucky dog lottery”. I realized that this is what we should have done originally.
Once again, thank you for your caring, thoughtful advice and time.
Marcy and Steve S.

Lakewood Animal is a very small and special place. I feel Dr. Sandler always is focused on you and your pet(s). The staff is very friendly and always in a cheerful mood.

Dr. Sandler,
We just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for the amazing care you have given to Roxy! Thank you for being so caring towards her and so understanding of the situation. We were truly blessed to find such great care for her when we did. Again thank you for all you have done and continue to do for our family.

Dr. Sandler,
Thanks so much for your taking care of Ginger and keeping her in “stitches”. Ginger is getting a lot of attention for her new T-shirt summer wardrobe.
I really appreciate your phone message about the outcome of the biopsy. That was good news.
You’re appreciated!
Larry B. and Ginger

Dear Staff,
I just wanted to take a moment to “thank you” for the wonderful treatment you gave Crystal. She was very calm and happy when we picked her up. It means a lot to us.
Thanks again.

Doc,(and of course, the Staff)
Thank you for all your care, dedication and love for Duncan during his life. As you know and noted, he was a very special dog(person). He loved you!
Thank you,

Doc Sandler and the whole staff of Lakewood Animal Clinic,
Thanks for all the TLC and kindness that you’ve shown to us and Duncan, you care for other people’s pets as if they were your own.
This card can never tell you how much you all have meant to us over the years. It will never be enough to show and thank you for all your care and concern for Duncan and for us. We have always known all of our animals received the best of care with you. Thanks for so many wonderful years through the routine times and the difficult ones.
God Bless you All!

My visit is always great! The very friendly staff works with our schedule to accomodate working families.

Our family has used Dr. Sandler “Lakewood Animal Clinic” for 16 years. He and his staff have treated our pets with kindness & caring at all times. We have been thru kittens to the final days, puppy to mature dog with chronic issues. I highly recommend them!
Cathie Lyons

I think Dr. Sandler’s staff Cathy, Chrissy, & Nancy are the Best! Dr. Sandler is rated #1 Excellent with my “Muffin”. Thank you all very much for a nice Dr’s visit for Muffin. I highly recommend everyone to see the staff.
Pamela K. Lewis

I have had many pets over the years, therefore, many “Pet Doctors”. I have to give Dr. Sandler many more than “5 Stars”! My cats lived a long and healthy life under your care, and my dog is the youngest 10 year-old ever; lots of love, energy, and the best ofdispositions. Thank you.

Lakewood Animal Clinic is our pet’s “home away from home”——sensitive , caring pet care and health maintenance for our dogs. They really treat our “children” like family. They are happy to come for their care & check-ups. Our family is most thankful! Our daughter referred us to Dr. Sandler and his assistants—-A Good Move!

I’ve been a client for over 13 years. Dr. Sandler and his staff are caring and accomodating. They’re always available when I need them to see one of my pets and guides me in making the best decisions on pet care. The new clinic is wonderful–very clean and well thought-out in its setup. I would highly recommend Lakewood Animal Clinic.
Melissa Miller

Dr. Sandler is a caring, compassionate vet. He keeps abreast of all new procedures and treatments to treat his patients. He was able to figure out and administer the proper treatment to cure both my dogs—-one of a persistent skin rash, the one of an eye infection, when my first vet wasn’t able to. I highly recommend the services of Lakewood Animal Clinic to any new patients! :)
Carole Mele

Lakewood Animal Clinic has treated all my pets since 1995. Doc Sandler and staff are very professional, treat the pets with a lot of love. I highly recommend Lakewood Animal Clinic for all your pet needs.
Joseph DuVall

During the 24 years I’ve been a client of Dr. Sandler’s, I’ve found him to be an extremely competent, caring doctor for the many dogs I’ve fostered through the years as well as those who were a permanent part of my family. He has been just a phone call away when I’ve been in distress at the loss of a beloved pet, or required after-hours medical attention, and he has helped in the difficult decision to put one to sleep when everything possible had been done to restore them to good health. I appreciate the excellent care provided by Dr. Sandler and the Lakewood team and look forward to our association for many years to come.
Diana Leonard

Yes, I am always happy when I leave here. This is the first time I have had a vet & his staff make me feel like they honestly care about my animal’s health. Thank You!
Connie Hill

I have been seeing Dr. Sandler since January ’93. He saved my Ragdoll cat, “Napdean’s” life when all else had given up; and for 16 years has provided impecable care to my two cats and my 14 yr old Lab. I currently live in St. Augustine and drive to Lakewood Animal Clinic for all my vet needs. 16 yrs of service and a 30 mile drive speaks to the level of faith and respect I have for Dr. Sandler.

      Very happy with our most recent visit where our Italian Mastiff needed to have his nails trimmed, ears cleaned and blood drawn. Everyone had a smile on their face (as well as sweat) after wrestling with our beast as he is not one to sit idly by...The Dr was observant and was frank and honest which we appreciated.

      Wonderful and caring doctor and staff! I can tell that everyone is there because they truly love what they do. I have already referred several friends to take their pets to LAC and will continue to do so.

      Been to several different vets around Jacksonville in the past 20 years- recommendations from friends, family referrals, and even accompanying someone else and their pet- NONE compare to Dr. Sandler and his staff! I won't take my Zoi anywhere else! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! My only wish is that I found them YEARS ago! Kind, patient, welcoming, educated, knowledgeable, and they take time to explain everything in layman's terms. Also affordable- worth every penny!!! There was no pressure of sales or rushing me along. Thank you Dr. Sandler AND staff! You'll be seeing more of us 💗
