"Have been a customer of theirs for 30+ years and have never had any problems with Dr's, tech's or the ladies at the reception desk.

Even with the new ownership, service continues with out skipping a beat. I trust that Dr. Berg & family would not let a fly by night operation ruin their legacy!"

"I have taken my cats and dogs to Berg Animal Hospital for over 25 years, and they  have always received exceptional medical care. The doctors and staff are professional and friendly.  Appointments are easy to make,  and every effort is made to insure that my pets are seen in a timely manner. Going to the vet can be stressful, however, the excellent staff and doctors at Berg Animal Hospital have always provided the emotional support needed by my pets and family. "
