Dr Karwacki

Dr. Amber Karwacki Partner Doctor

Dr. Karwacki received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Oklahoma State University. After graduating, she worked in New Jersey and Philadelphia both in private and corporate practice as well as with a guide dog school. Dr. Karwacki’s clinical interests include surgery, behavior, and ophthalmology.

In her spare time, Dr. Karwacki can be found baking or in her garden with her husband and two sons.

Dr. Nicole Romanzi

Dr. Nicole Romanzi, VMD Associate Doctor

Dr. Nicole Romanzi always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. Her vast collection of stuffed animals were always well-cared for with a toy doctor's kit, and learned to sew at a young age so that any rips and tears could be quickly repaired with minor surgery. As a child, she grew up with a pet rabbit, a sweet yellow lab, and a myriad of fish, but she fell in love with cats when her best friend brought home a rescue kitten which proceeded to become her constant crafting partner and shadow. A few years later, another rescue cat joined them and became the family lovebug to help her through veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania. After graduating, she spent the next year in practice with everything from the smallest reptiles to the largest dogs, but missed being in Philadelphia where she had made her home. No creature is too small, however, as her home is now includes two elderly rescue rats along with her cats!

I can’t rave enough about this place. It was my cat’s first vet experience and the staff was amazing and really took... their time with her. They made my cat feel so comfortable and at ease during her wellness visit which she also received 2 vaccinations and nail trimming. The team was professional and really took my concerns into consideration. I was so pleased with the visit and will be coming back again for cat grooming!read more

She was very attentive to our concerns. Very affordable as well. I will continue to schedule all my appointments here. Thank you from Princess (the labradoodle) and her mommy.read more

edit 2022: I left this vet. The staff never remembered that my dog was a girl, always said “he” - not a big deal but... it’s not hard to remember and made it feel impersonal. Whenever they called to say her prescription was ready for pick up, I would get there and the staff had no idea what I was talking about. I had to wait 20-30 min every single time while they filled it after I got there. My dog has bad anxiety and fear, but they never seemed to take that into consideration. I know it’s a lot to deal with, but I like knowing that she’s being taken care of. Switched to Art City and they took 2 appts to just meet her and have her get comfortable with the vet and staff before doing any blood work! When I called to get her chart transferred, heart and paw didn’t even care that we were leaving. Glad we switched. *I still believe that Dr. Cherry always did a good job and made sure that she answered all my questions, so it was more of a logistics problem.*The staff is always super friendly and helpful! They seem to really care about your pet and providing great service. It’s expensive, but I feel like they only recommend treatment that is necessary rather than adding things on to make money. Dr. Cherry takes the time to explain things and listen to your concerns. Overall Heart + Paw has been amazing with my dog!read more

They were amazing and very gentle with my fur baby who was very scared for her first visit. The vet also explained... things clearly for me to understand and answered every question I had. The place was pretty clean and the whole process was relatively quick. 10/10 would recommend a friend.read more

This place is incredibly welcoming and clean! The veterinarian/vet techs/front desk agent were incredibly kind as I... fumbled through questions and concerns I had with my newly acquired cat child. They made sure to address all the topics I asked about, including their payment plans and other routine maintenance needed for my cat. There was consistent communication when an appointment slot was not available and they emailed a summary visit which also included the questions I asked so that if I forgot an answer, I could refer back to their recommendations. I highly recommend this vet for excellent pricing and their professionalism!read more

We brought our puppy for a walk in visit close to the end of the day and everyone from the person checking us in, the... vet nurse, and the vet were friendly as can be and happily squeezed us in! Everyone was so so helpful and informative, made us feel comfortable asking every question (even ones we kinda knew were silly but wanted to ask as new per owners), and did a thorough review of the records we had. They were so sweet with our puppy and reasonably priced. They explained everything in an approachable way and also wrote it typed it all up and sent us a detailed document afterwards so we didn’t need to try to remember everything! Awesome that they have online scheduling and walk in options. We are definitely going to keep taking our dog here!read more

I recently visit this particular Heart + Paw for a grooming appointment for my long hair kitty, my kitty had matted fur... that needed to be removed immediately. I was a bit skeptical because I know my kitty is a bit skittish, but the groomer Caitlin was extremely patient with her. She broke down my kitty grooming session into 2, Caitlin was vary caring for my kitty making her as comfortable as possible. Overall I was vary happy with my kitty cut and care under Caitlin supervision, i definitely recommend this establishment for your pet care. I will definitely will be back as long as Caitlin there. Thank you!read more

My first time here today with my puppy. Since the first time I called to ask questions last month and until now the... person who answered the phone was very helpful and great to talk to. Answered all my questions. When I walked in today with my puppy the front person greeted us with politeness. Love the energy he had. Great customer service as soon as you walk in. Especially very helpful when my puppy did a mess in her cage. The nurse that help us today took the time to answer all my questions. Was great with my puppy, took her time to explain everything that was going to happen. Went into details of all the vaccine my puppy needed today. Once the doctor came in she was amazing. Also went into details about what we need for the puppy. When she checked my puppy she was so gentle and caring. I really appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was going well with my puppy. Even when you leave they still have the same pleasant, politeness as you walk in. For being my first time here. I would really recommend this place. The great customer service is awesome. I'll be going back in three weeks for another vaccine and grooming.read more

I visited for the first time to get my cats vaccines and shots up to date and the staff was wonderful! I was 30 min... early and they still took my information and sat me in the waiting area. All of the staff was super friendly and comforting. Both my cat and I had anxiety and they were really welcoming and informative about the vaccines and my cats well being. Would highly recommend if you’re in the area to visit, will be going back!read more

Rachelle and Malik were truly amazing. Our poor baby Aggie lost feeling in her back legs and they gladly picked all 70... lbs of her up from our truck and carried her inside, then made a bed for her in a treatment room and brought her a bowl of water. The treatment room was sparkling clean.The doctor was very gentle with Aggie and provided a diagnosis on the spot, then some truly helpful recommendations. After trying three vets, we felt Heart & Paw provided the most professional, compassionate, and hygienic experience by far.read more

Been in for only my kitten’s first appointment, and definitely going back to this location for more care in the future.... Everyone was super nice. The kitten had an “accident” on the drive over and an employee helped me clean her up. The vet tech was super nice and helpful as well. She gave me info about pet insurance recommendations, and roundworm care. Everyone I’ve spoken with, including by phone communication, has been kind and helpful. I’ve recommended this place to my roommates who have pets as well.read more

Very nice staff they answered any questions I had, I found it greatly helpful especially with having my first puppy the... reason why I left a star is only because I was told I was being sent with information on taking care of a puppy but after getting home and opening my folder I found that the information was not left with me. I would totally recommend them just kinda upset they didn’t give me the paperwork that they said they were gonna give me, also there was no paperwork for the visit stating what they did or a price breakdown of what i was charged.read more

From beginning to end the service was great. I was greeted the moment I came in. Friendly atmosphere. The place was... very clean. The groomer Alexis was very nice when meeting my 4legged baby and me. She took the time to listen to me and look him over. I was sent a text message when he was almost done which I really appreciate. I have finally found a good groomer. I have been to several groomers and have not been pleased at all. We will definitely be back. I truly loved his hair cut.read more
