Testimonials


“Dr. Daphne Tanouye and her team are the absolute best – I wish I could give 10 stars for their services. My dogs are both terrified at the vet’s office so I decided to go with in home care instead and now vet visits are a breeze with relaxed and happy pups.

As a professional dog trainer, I am extremely picky about who handles my dogs, but it’s obvious that Dr. Tanouye truly cares about her patients and really takes her time to make sure they (and you) are comfortable and relaxed, no scary manhandling here. LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. Highly recommend!”

“Thank you! I’ve used other home vets but you are by far the best.”
~~ Nadine G., Washington, DC
“I can’t tell you how grateful we are that we have such awesome vets! Your patience, communication, and above-and-beyond care is just incredible, and I know Hammie and Bear are in great hands.”
~~ Jena W., Washington, DC
“Chuckie was much less stressed today [than he usually is after vet appointments]. After you left he was ready to eat, nap, etc. He didn’t hide. That’s priceless!”
~~ Peggy K., Silver Spring, MD

“In years of looking, I have never met a vet who had such gentle natural rapport with animals as Daphne Tanouye. Comes to your house, provides excellent care, and will charm you and your animals. Very gentle approach. Not expensive. Having to take our three cats to the vet was awfully stressful and we dreaded it. So did they, it seemed. This is an affordable alternative, and I totally trust our darlings to their loving knowledgeable care.”
~~ Arlene M., Silver Spring, Maryland
“Our first visit from Dr. Tanouye of Rock Creek Home Vet went extremely well. Dr. Tanouye came with two vet techs and they were thorough, compassionate, knowledgeable, and efficient but not hurried – everything one could want. They did the routine exams and vaccines as well as blood work and urinalysis where needed. We have three scaredy cats who wriggle and struggle and don’t like to be picked up. However, they were all were handled with loving kindness that was also firm enough to get the job done. I got a detailed electronic receipt as well as thorough reports. Needless to say, I highly recommend them.”

“Dr. Tanouye came to see Wilson at the house last week and was amazing. She was able to finally get to the bottom of the paw and ear issues plaguing him for a year! Their attention to detail is extraordinary. For example, they brought a portable scale to weigh Wilson for exact medication dosing. They had a microscope with them to diagnose from samples taken on the spot; provided clear, readable directions on an itemized invoice, were compassionate and very thorough when examining ‘my boy’ and Dr. Tanouye and Adam are cool and fun to be around.”
~~ Sarah K., Chevy Chase, MD.

“Before I found Dr. Daphne Tanouye, I had tried two other vets for my black lab, Camden. Her level of knowledge is superior and her care of Camden is wonderful. She’s seen us through a surgery, sprained tails, and so much more! I’ve followed Dr. Tanouye to two brick and mortar vets and I am now thrilled to be with her at Rock Creek Home Veterinary Care. Camden loves her and I feel confident and secure in her care.“
~~ Kathy S., Silver Spring, MD
“Dr. Tanouye was quick in the diagnosis of our dog’s illness and made numerous calls on our behalf to the specialist. She patiently answered our many questions, and was so kind and respectful when we came to the realization that he was in too much pain. She graciously offered to come to our home to euthanize Feynman so that he could spend his last moments in his home with his family. We will be forever grateful.“
~~ Amy S., Silver Spring, MD
“As the founder of an animal rescue group, I have had exposure to hundreds of veterinarians. Dr. Tanouye is simply in a class by herself. Her compassion, her attention to detail, her physical exam skills, and diagnostic abilities are unmatched. I am a physician myself and when it came time to chose a vet for our own ‘furkids’ the decision was simple. Dr. Tanouye is not only exceptionally bright and talented, but she is also one of the most kind and committed clinicians I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.”
~~ Kelly P., Silver Spring, MD

“Dr. Daphne is one of the most caring vets we’ve known. Even our 18-year old cat, Oliver, immediately took to her–he articulated his affection very loudly and showed his appreciation by sharing something of a personal nature. Despite all of that, Daphne called him a “good boy.” We love Dr. Daphne! “
~~ Fred & Barbara W., Maryland
“Prior to moving away from MD, we used RCHV for all of our pet’s needs over several years. I cannot recommend them enough. It’s easily worth twice what they charge to have the luxury of not stressing out your pet by having to load them in a carrier and drive them across the DMV.

On a sadder note, we had to euthanize our kitty and being able to do this in our own home was a blessing during a very emotional time. The compassion and care from Dr. T’s team was amazing.”
~~ Jim A.

“I have used Rock Creek for shots and checkups of my pup since I got her a few years ago. I decided to go with a home visit vet because I felt my dog would do better and be more comfortable in a familiar setting.

They do a great job with everything, and are very understanding of my puppy’s anxieties. The costs for services and appointments are spelled out clearly for you and emailed to you ahead of time. I would recommend them if you are looking for a service like this.”
~~ Eric H.


“Daphne and her team are wonderful! Our pets just love them, and we know they’re in good hands. Daphne also recommended great resources for us–puppy training classes at Your Dog’s Friend in Rockville, in-home training with Jessica Lamb at Urban Canine, and a great book to teach us how to train our new pup. We could not be happier. Thanks, Daphne!!”

“Your visit yesterday was such a pleasant, calm, and reassuring experience! Amazing, since it was a medical procedure!“
~~ Evelyn W., Bethesda, MD
Just had my first appointment with Dr. Tanouye and both she and the vet tech, Adam that accompanied her were amazing! The appointment was for our cat and this was a night and day difference for him re: veterinarian care. They were fantastic with him, while providing a very thorough exam and rabies vaccination. Very comforting bedside manner putting both you and your pet at ease. All in the comfort of your home.

Very reasonable rates + they offer a military discount.

The value, quality and convenience of service cannot be beat. Hands down we have found our new vet!!!!”
