Read What Our Clients Say

  • "We had our first visit there today, I've been searching for a new vet after a very bad experience. Our dog is usually fearful and growly at the vets, but at Dr. Nachbar's she was wagging her tail and eating treats. The staff is exceptionally kind and caring and went out of their way to make her feel comfortable. I will be singing your praises!"
    Jeanne Wangelin Holmes
  • "I've brought my dogs here for years. It began with a surgical referral from someone who took over my original Vet's practice. My girl never had the surgery because it was deemed unnecessary and she lived out a great life to the age of 14 under Dr. Nachbar's care. After that first visit, I pulled both my dogs out of the care of the previous provider and have been a faithful client ever since. The expertise, the education and the love of his work sets Dr. Nachbar far above the rest. I recommend this Vet 100%."
    Linda Kathleen
  • "I love Dr Nachbar! He's been our vet for at least 16 years. Always compassionate and always listens to you."
    Debbie Farner
  • "Dr. Nachbar and his girls are the best. They take such good care of my little dogs and care how I feel about what is going on with them. They are so friendly and helpful in any situation I have had. I would recommend them to anyone with dogs that are part of your family."
    Nancy Keith
  • "After years of seeing different vets with different dogs I can honestly say Dr. Nachbar DVM + his new associate Dr. Gugino DVM are absolutely the best vets I've ever taken my dogs to. They genuinely care about their patients + owners. They take the time to put you at ease, answer all your questions + concerns. The first time I took my 2 Labs to Dr. Nachbar, I thought where have you been my whole life !!!! They work with traditional + homeopathic treatments. In my opinion, Nachbar veterinary clinic in Springville, NY is without a doubt the best place in our area to take your animals sick or healthy!!!!"
