Our boxer dog has an extensive history of GI & allergy issues. After relocating here I continued to drive her to Polaris because the holistic vet there who fixed a lot of her issues knew her so well. I finally made the transition to Dr Shields & my only regret was I didn't do it sooner. He read thru our dogs history & medical reports prior to our first appointment . He was well versed in all that works for our dog & was accommodating in continuing the regimen. The staff is amazing! Read Less

I've been taking my furkids here for years and if anyone ever asks for a veterinary recommendation. I always suggest Dr. Ben Shields. I have had experience in the past with vets that manhandle animals and don't treat them in a way I want my animals treated and I am happy to report I will never have to experience that again. Dr. Ben is very patient focused and understands animal behavior and handles animals gently and in a way that causes the least amount of stress to them (because we know a vet visit is always stressful to our furkids) I know my kids are in good hands with Dr. Ben and the friendly and caring staff of Cross Creeks Animal Hospital. Thank you all for all that again you do. Read Less

We recently moved to the area and called to set up an appointment based on referrals from others and Yelp. We were really impressed with how quickly we were able to make an appointment, how prepared they were for us, and the care we received. Our cat had an accident at the office inside of his carrier and he was quickly tended to by wonderful staff, cleaned up (as was his cage!). Everyone was very nice and understanding. The vet himself was spectacular and reassuring. I am so glad we found such a wonderful vet home for our two cats. Read Less

I have been with Dr. Jeff for over 30 years and he has always been professional and helpful with all of my dogs. I feel he gives 100% to making sure your pet gets the best treatment. He doesn't talk at you, he talks to you about the best treatments for you pet. He treated one of my dogs who had cancer and took the time to be honest and helpful every step of the way. He is very compassionate in everything he does. Now Ben has joined the practice is has the same traits. I would highly recommend his practice to anyone. His staff is great too.

Dr. Shields and his staff are the best. I have an 8 year old lab baby and I feel completely confident in taking her to him as she approaches her senior years. I know he has labs of is own. He is so great with her and always tells me to keep doing what I'm doing and doesn't push to have unnecessary tests or treatments. You can tell his priority is the welfare of the animals, as it should be. He also taught me how to make my own ear cleaner at home which I've never had a vet do. They usually push to have you buy the expensive stuff from them. Anyway, so glad I found Dr. Shields! Read Less

The day we were set to close on our new home and move into the area our dog experienced an aural hematoma. We came in for a visit and were pleasantly surprised. Dr. shields did not immediately push surgery and did a thorough checkup. He explained our options and suggested waiting to see how our dog would do. When two weeks later she was no better we opted for surgery. The doctor himself called to explain her bloodwork results. Costs were reasonable and explained ahead of time. No surprises on our bill and every cost was itemized. We will definitely be back and have found our family vet. After the surgery our call and directly from the Vet. The receptionist and intake runs smoothly and are knowledgeable and friendly too! Great practice. There was no push to add on services like extra vaccines, diet aids, tooth care, etc at the time either! Read Less

I'm so glad they did.Dr. Shields, his vet techs and the staff are awesome.

I have always loved Boston Terriers, and after many years of waiting, I finally bought one from a breeder in March of '06.  As soon as I brought him home, I discovered he was very sick.  Dr. Duvall (who is no longer there), helped me nurse my Merlin back to health.  Merlin was infected with a bad case of mange, ear infection, respiratory infection, yeast infection, and every kind of worm a dog can get in its stool.  It took me almost a year and a lot of money, but Merlin was finally healthy and has been so ever since thanks to the Cross Creeks staff.  Throughout Merlin's illness, I had been fighting with the breeder over paying for his medical expenses, and Dr. Duvall even wrote a letter to describe how all of Merlin's conditions were the result of bad breeding/bad breeding environment, as I planned to sue the breeder for all the expenses and have her breeding program shut down.  The staff was kind enough to write off some of the charges as things got very expensive, and every time I come in, they know me and all three of my dogs by name.  Dr. Duvall is gone now, but Dr. Shields is just as nice and experienced.  On many occasions, he has been honest rather than push vaccinations and products sold in the office.  I feel they really care about my dogs and appreciate how friendly and loving to my dogs everyone is.

My experience with Dr. Shields goes back nearly 30 years. All my pets have been cared for in the most professional, yet loving, manner. He and his son both not only practice medicine they provide a gentle, loving touch to each and every patient! I would not take my little "children" to anyone else! Read Less

When my rescue dog Holly (dachshund) came into my life, I knew I wanted to find a vet's office that was friendly, caring and would be able to take care of all of her pet care needs. A couple friends suggested Cross Creek Animal Hospital in Pickerington. First off, it should tell you something that when friends are willing to make recommendations to other friends, they must really  like the place. I'm so glad they did.Dr. Shields, his vet techs and the staff are awesome. The cost of services are reasonable  and he listens to you and answers all your questions, basically everything that I'm looking for in a good veterinarian! I highly recommend Cross Creeks animal hospital! Read Less

Dr. Shields is the best, most caring vet I've ever been to! He treats my three dwarf bunnies, and is very knowledgeable about rabbits and their behavior and care. He is very sympathetic and takes the time to explain things in a way that you understand. He also is one of the only vets in Columbus who treats and specializes in small animals (pocket pets). Wouldn't take my bunnies to any other vet! Thanks Dr. Shields & staff! Read Less

Dr. Shields and staff are so nice and personable...I really appreciate the job they do and the care and attention they give my dogs.  I would recommend them to anyone, and have many times. We only had one dog when we switched from our old vet (whom our dog was afraid to visit) and now we have two; our dogs are not only unafraid of the vet, they love him! I swear our oldest  has a crush on Dr. Shields...you should see the way she sits up tall and shows off when he's around - too funny! Read Less

I wish I could find a regular family doctor and office staff that is as caring, informative, and special as Dr. Shields and his staff.   I wish I was a cat.   I have never had a bad experience in this office and I feel so blessed to have found him through a friend.  I have never met a more compassionate group of people who understand that pets are family members.  Thank you for helping me through the illness and eventual death of my cat.  And even though my other cat doesn't like the trip, I know she feels as comfortable as she can be in your hands.   You are all amazing!

I started going to this hospital in 1999 when we moved to the area, when Dr. Duvall was the vet.  He helped us care for a number of our animals.  He was always truthful and honest about price of options and helped us make mindful, compassionate decisions.When Dr. Shields bought the practice i was skeptical about changing vets, but gave him a shot.  I find him to be just as compassionate,  honest and knowledgable as Dr. Duvall.  We've been lucky to have such great vets in Pickerington.  Nancy and Matt at the front desk are wonderful too (sometimes their great job gets overlooked, but really, they're great too!)

I have always loved Boston Terriers, and after many years of waiting, I finally bought one from a breeder in March of '06.  As soon as I brought him home, I discovered he was very sick.  Dr. Duvall (who is no longer there), helped me nurse my Merlin back to health.  Merlin was infected with a bad case of mange, ear infection, respiratory infection, yeast infection, and every kind of worm a dog can get in its stool.  It took me almost a year and a lot of money, but Merlin was finally healthy and has been so ever since thanks to the Cross Creeks staff.  Throughout Merlin's illness, I had been fighting with the breeder over paying for his medical expenses, and Dr. Duvall even wrote a letter to describe how all of Merlin's conditions were the result of bad breeding/bad breeding environment, as I planned to sue the breeder for all the expenses and have her breeding program shut down.  The staff was kind enough to write off some of the charges as things got very expensive, and every time I come in, they know me and all three of my dogs by name.  Dr. Duvall is gone now, but Dr. Shields is just as nice and experienced.  On many occasions, he has been honest rather than push vaccinations and products sold in the office.  I feel they really care about my dogs and appreciate how friendly and loving to my dogs everyone is.
