Dr. Dave has been or vet for our four dogs and two cats for the last several years. He provides us with multiple options as situations arise and has been very helpful with tough decisions. He has even told me what he would do if it were his pet, which I really appreciate. I had been going to another vet when I switched to Dr. Dave. After a bad experience with the other local vet, Dr. Dave has been a godsend. I highly recommend this very capable man.
Family Vet for 20 Years – We have been bringing our pets to Dr. Dave for over 20 years. In that time I have never had reason to question his knowledge base, his professionalism, or his caring attitude. He is always gentle with our pets, especially the new ones, giving them an opportunity to get a feel for him before he begins an exam or treatment, often sitting on the floor with his furry patient so that they are more comfortable and at ease.
In 20 years I have never seen him lose patience with any animal or raise his voice. Dr. Dave has always been willing to share care tips and make suggestions, when appropriate, to save a little money.
I have to wonder about the agenda of "thee gadget" because I've never experienced anything like that on any visit with Dr. Dave. When our big dog was diagnosed with a tricky cancer, Dr. Dave found us an excellent specialist and kept in touch to see how things were going - something I consider above and beyond the standard of basic care.
We were so fortunate to find Dr. Dave when we moved to Palmdale and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Dave's Cruel and Unusual Punishment! – This was the worst experience we have ever had with a vet; I strongly recommend going somewhere else if you care at all about your pet and their wellbeing. My wife brought our 8 week old guinea pig in to be looked at after we had a concern of a possible fungal infection close to his eye; we researched online and found it would be best to bring him to a vet to properly identify the issue. First, Dr. Dave thought he was a Chinchilla, the only similarity was color; our little guy is gray but looks just like a guinea pig, small ears, no tail and all. To be a “qualified” guinea pig vet, his ignorance was appalling. Second, before even inspecting his eye he took a razor knife and scrapped a few layers of skin off around his eye, causing him to scream and bleed excessively, he then yelled at our little guy for squirming. He handled the little guy roughly and had no patience or compassion. Third, my wife asked if he could show her how to trim his nails properly, he picked him up and attempted to trim his nails, then said it didn’t need to be done; but charged us for it anyway. Forth, after his inspection he still didn’t know what was wrong with our little guy, if anything, but still insisted we buy a $33 medication which would treat both mites and fungus. Finally she left the place very upset and had to pay $99.50 for his bad and cruel service not knowing anything more about our little guy’s condition than she did when she got there. This was the worst experience ever with a vet and we will NEVER return.
