Dr Matt Hamilton, Beach Buddies Animal Hospital, fraud
Is doctor Matt Hamilton a sociopath?
Here's my story, you be the judge… I first met him when I took my cat to Newkirk Family veterinarians who he worked for, my wife who takes care of my cat and loves my cat very much became very attached to him because of his charming and friendly personality. She had complete confidence in him as the cats doctor.
When Dr Matt Hamilton started his own Animal Hospital, Beach Buddies in Marmora Nj she followed him and told every pet owner she knows how good she thought he was. For different various reasons I always had some slight doubts about his veterinary skills.
My cat had an ongoing problem with being constipated and we spent thousands of dollars with him over a short period of time having him cleaned out which would normally last for a few months before the problem would arise again.
I am on a fixed income and at one point a few months ago fell a few hundred dollars behind for the first time and Dr Matt said don't give it another thought, pay me when you can. I sent him a partial payment and told him the full balance would be paid the next month in May, again he said no problem.
Towards the end of April our cat hadn't gone to the bathroom for over a week and we brought him into Dr Matt at which time the receptionist said with an attitude that they wouldn't service him unless the previous bill and todays bill was paid in full, my wife was confused and very embarrassed. I had intended to pay for todays visit anyway with some cash I loaned from a relative so I told her to let them know that and the small balance of a few hundred dollars would be paid next week.
Everything felt wrong after that, first off our cat was ready to be picked up to fast, usually he gets x ray-ed and then given an enema or two, if that doesn't work which it never does, he is put to sleep and the stools are manually extracted, he then is bathed and cleaned and sleeps all the way home and is back to himself eating well, etc. by the next day.
When we picked him up in a much shorter time period than normal he was totally awake and still making these very strange load noises, he didn't sleep at all on the way back, continued making the strange duck like sounds, hardly ate anything for the next week, usually he's a very big eater, and was still totally constipated.
Every time my wife called she was nastily spoken to by the receptionist. Finally she called and said she didn't know what to do. The very next day we received a registered letter telling us that Dr Matt Hamilton and Beach Buddies would no longer service our pet and to pay up. My wife was totally devastated and confused. She had a major anxiety attach that night and could hardly breath. I was up with her for many hours.
The next day after calling to find out what this was all about we finally received a phone call from Alan V. Bernardini the author of that letter we received. He told us the reason is because the receptionist had told them a couple of weeks ago that my wife had made a comment to her that Dr Matt Hamilton is leading Alan around by the nose.
First off this receptionist has always had a slight attitude towards my wife which didn't make sense because she gets along very well with everyone. Second off, my wife never has remarks or bad things to say about anyone. My wife has been in business for over 35 years dealing directly with the public and has seen many times how a remark seems to always get around, she is extremely aware of that fact and never, and I mean never allows herself to get drawn into negative remarks about anyone. The only thing that makes sense is that this is how that girl felt about her two bosses but would never say it directly to them so put the words in my wife's mouth who for whatever strange reason has an attitude with.
The next day I had to borrow some more money and bring our cat to a different animal hospital. After taking x rays they said he was totally severely backed up. His stools were very hard, it took them 3 different procedure to clean him out, they said his stools were many weeks old. They prescribed feeding him only very wet food and putting back on his medication. On our last visit to Dr Matt Hamilton he told us to stop the wet food and medication and just give him dry food. The new vet said that made no sense at all.
With in a month we received a summons for a law suit over the money still owed to Beach Buddies
I filled a complaint with documentation to the Better Business Bureau and Department of Consumer Affairs, The ASPCA criminal unit will be next...
