Read What Our Clients Say

  • "On March 15, 2022 our beloved 3 yr old Great Pyrenees LGD Xena was not acting like her happy self. Knowing she was 25 days pregnant we were concerned that she was having trouble with the pregnancy. I contacted Dr. Nachbar who opened some time for us the following morning. Dr. Gugino examined Xena and found she had a pneumothorax and let us know the seriousness of her condition. She had Orchard Park Veterinary Medical Center (OPVMC) contacted and let them know we were on our way. Xena spent 4 days at OPVMC. After having a chest tube inserted and still showing no signs of improvement she underwent surgery. It was then the surgical team found a small twig which had punctured her lung. Once they removed the damaged lung lobe she quickly improved. While she was in OPVMC we were informed that after the process of inserting the chest tube, they could no longer detect fetal heartbeats. Sad to have lost the pregnancy but elated that our Xena was saved, she came home to recover."

  • "During this entire process Dr. G kept in daily contact with us and OPVMC for updates about Xena. Once Xena was home we scheduled a follow up visit with Dr. G to assure the lost pregnancy was resolving properly. It was during the ultrasound exam that Dr. G discovered there were still live puppies! With the help of Dr. G we quickly readjusted to now understanding that we had a dog who was recovering from major surgery AND going to deliver puppies. A few short weeks later Xena delivered 9 healthy puppies. Xena delivered her puppies just as she had done that last two litters: without incident and the help of two cartons of vanilla ice cream. If it wasn't for the professionalism, expertise and compassion of both Dr. Nachbar and Dr. Gugino, Xena and her puppies would not be here today. There simply are no words to express our gratitude."

  • "Dr. Nachbar is the best. We drive 45 minutes from Buffalo for our dachshund because we trust him more than anyone in the city. The services are affordable, scheduling flexible, and the appointment personal. I would, without a doubt, encourage your patronage of this fantastic practice."
    Garrett Martin
  • "Dr. Nachbar is just fantastic. He makes time to see our crew, and is always available for emergencies. I have recommended Dr. Nachbar to everyone that I know!!! Even Dani and all of the Techs are wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar and his practice to everyone. He certainly goes above and beyond in his care for all of our critters, and it shows."
    Pat Hoffert
  • "I used Dr Nachbar for many years to care for my Dogs, cats and Parrot. Competent, kind, thoughtful, communicative are just a few of the adjectives I would use to describe him. The care my animals received was always top notch. I trust him far more than my human care providers. :) do not hesitate to select him as your veterinarian!"
    Staci Saulter
  • "Can't thank everyone enough! So very helpful with the myriad of pets we have. Everyone goes the extra mile, literally, to take care of this houseful of fur babies."
    Melanie Pritchard
  • "We had our first visit for a wellness checkup for our Sun Conure and had an amazing experience. The staff was extremely friendly, supportive and most of all loving towards our new addition, Beaker. They took us on time, answered all of my questions and even provided me with support materials to take home. Highly recommend, especially for special case pets."
    Colleen Hattler
  • "Friendly staff and excellent care for your pets."
    Andrea Post
  • "He is a very kind and gentle vet to your pet who really cares . His surgery abilities are phenomenal."
    Sandy Jones
  • "Just switched from another vet and I am impressed. Dr. Gugino was awesome. She's very smart and thoughtful. She diagnosed and treated Zeus, my dog, when no one else could . The staff is very pleasant and knowledgeable."
    Jackie Ettipio
  • "Nice vet takes the time to care for your pet needs and definitely has an excellent staff for support."
    Tim Leclerc
  • "Dr Nachbar & Dr Tyczka and staff take such good care of our hamsters. I couldn’t have asked for a better veterinarian. I would give them 100 stars if I could."
    Kristeen Izzio
  • "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!!!!"
    Danette Eimiller
  • "Dr Nachbar is up to date on newer trends in veterinary medicine, including reduced vaccination schedule, acupuncture, chiropractic, Chinese medicine as well as traditional veterinary practice."

  • "Our family pet , Buster suffered a torn ligament in his knee. Dr. Nachbar and his staff not only repaired his knee but did it faster and at a better price than any of the other local animal hospitals in this area. We are thankful for the efforts of the hospital and intend to transfer all three of our animals over to Dr. Nachbar for future care."
