Doctor B cares for my chronically ill Beagle. She has so many issues and he helps her in so many ways! He is kind and loving and the care he gives her is beyond amazing! His prices are always fair and cheaper than other clinics around bc his first concern is your animal!! This is so rare to find in our money hungry world! The Staff are top notch and so loveable and friendly! I cant say enough about Doctor B! He is truly one of the last of the old school docs that take the time to talk ...view moreto you and explain everything that you need to understand about your dogs condition!! One of the last true caring vets left who truly cares about your animal vs what all he can bleed you for money wise! Go see him you will not be sorry!view less

These people know this rare breed of dog and the proper grooming and care necessary for a happy little 4 legged boy and his owner. I just wisi Joy could come to FL with me to give me grooming lessons.

Simply the best

It's true that this practice may not be in a new and shiny building, but you cannot get a better more caring doctor than Dr. B! And, since when does your dog care what his surroundings look like? Our first experience 15 years ago was with my late beloved dalmatian. He was the sweetest dog who loved everyone, everyone except the vet. I tried several local places where I left in tears because they either refused to treat him or wanted to sedate him or were just mean to him. Then someone...view more recommended Dr. B. We went there and Dr. B was great; he took the time to let my dog get to know him, would talk to him, give him a treat; and presto! within a few minutes my Bingo was giving Dr. B kisses. Mind you we had to do this every year when we went for his physical but I always left feeling like Dr. B loved all animals. Caring Hands also works with many rescues; helping all that they can.view less

Dont judge a book by its cover

The place is not a luxurious resort. If you are the kind that gives your dogs bottled water, kisses them on the mouth, or lets them sleep between them and their spouse on the bed, this is probably not a place for you. For the rest of us who love our dogs (but maybe less than our kids) and who do not mind if the dog sleeps on the floor, well this place deserves your attention. They are universally kind, professional, and I always get my money’s worth. The vet actually spends time wi...view moreth you explaining the dog's condition, etc. It is a throwback to old-time vets I remember from my childhood. I get the feeling this guy would make house calls if he could. I am constantly surprised how they can offer so much of their time at so little a cost.\r
I have boarded my dogs there on several occasions and they always come back clean, happy, and apparently well treated. \r
One downside - the place does look dated, and maybe a bit worn, but OK, I've seen my dog roll in dirt and drink from the toilet, so I figure he really doesn't mind that the pattern has rubbed off the linoleum in the place we board him. \r

Great Veterinarian

David Bernander, DVM is one of the best diagnosticians in the area. He loves his animals and the animals that he cares for. I have been using him for many years and trust only him with my surgeries. I have several cats and dogs. \r
The bad review sounds like someone that must have worked for the clinic. ie, sour grapes.\r
The building is an older building, but who cares? I take my pets there for the best veterinary care that my money can buy.\r

Great vet and staff

Dr. B is an excellent vet who also breeds great dogs. I've always been impressed with the time he spends explaining things to me and how gentle he is with the dogs. And, when I get my bill, I'm always amazed at how little he charges during these times. The facility isn't the most modern, but it's adequate and I appreciate the fact that it keeps my vet bills affordable for him to have lower overhead. I can't believe any of his current staff would be rude although they do stay very ...view morebusy. Joy also has a way with dogs and knows how to groom one for show. My dogs' health is very important to me and I feel very secure with their care they receive here.view less

Not a good place to board your babies!

I try to give every place the benefit of the doubt but this place is a bad place to board your pets. First off....I asked to see where my pets would stay...what a mistake!!! It looks worse than the local pound. It is an old dark buidling and they keep all the pets in the dark most of the time. It is soooo sad and dirty looking. I know most boarding facilities are not fancy but this one is plain awful. Also, I think it must be dirty because one of my dogs had a bad bladder infection (a ...view morevery bad vet told me...I took my dog the very day I picked him up from there) when he came home and the vet said that they had no idea how this could have gone unoticed by a vet (caring hands has a vet on staff). My other dog had a bacterial stomach infection. I had to spend all kinds of money the week I picked them up because both of them were sick. I understand some boarding causes stress on dogs but I have boarded them many other times at other facilities without ever having these problems. They also seemed to be a bit traumatized or something. I will never take them back here. They are cheaper than most places so I thought I would save some money but ended up spending more money on vet bills so I learned my lesson (you pay for what you get!).view less

Awful Vet

Do not board your pets here. I boarded mine there for the first time over the 4th of July holiday and when I picked him up today he had filth and dirt on every leg, urine caked on the tops of his hind legs and his elbows are raw and swollen from where he was clearly not given a blanket to sleep on and instead had to sleep on the concrete floor. He looks like he has not been fed in 4 days and drank 3 bowls of water when we got home. The place itself is not nice and they clearly have ...view moreno idea how to care for animals.view less
