  • "Thank you Dr. Gerber and staff for welcoming my Aussies, Sugar and Harper so warmly. Sugar is usually shy, but she seemed pretty relaxed in your office, and Harper didn't want to leave. Neither one seemed to even know you gave them injections. You and your staff are calming, kind and understanding. You patiently answered my questions and I felt my girls and myself valued. I'm glad I decided to come to your office."
    Brenda G.
  • "When Dr. Burns retired, I was sure no one else could fill his shoes. He made a good choice when he turned the practice over to Dr Gerber. The transition was very smooth. Dr. Gerber is just as patient and caring. Our fur babies are good hands!!"

However, several days later, our puppy became extremely sick and started behaving strangely. Dr Gerber was so responsive and reassuring and met me at the clinic first thing in the morning. She kept our puppy at the clinic for further tests, to give him liquids, and monitor his condition. Dr Gerber communicated with me throughout the day to update me and reassure me. She even helped me make the difficult (but beneficial) decision to keep our puppy overnight to ensure he was fully healed. My family was worried and anxious not only about our puppy's health, but also his comfort and anxiety level. Dr Gerber gave me her professional opinion, but also reassured me about his comfort level. Even in just the way she described his behaviors and actions (he was not panting or pacing; he was responsive and resting comfortably), Dr Gerber re.."
