Dr. Walker is the most incredible vet I've ever known. He treated one of my dog's bladder stones when other vets were unable to. His compassionate care gave my bichon, who had terminal kidney failure, an extra 2.5 months of QUALITY life when other vets said the only option was to put her to sleep. All of my pets love Dr. Walker and are calm and relaxed when they are in his office -- that's never happened with any other vet. Dr. Walker is up-to-date on the latest research, knows the best treatment protocols to use, is compassionate and caring, and takes the time to explain everything to his clients and give them all their options. My husband and I are moving out-of-state, and the saddest part of our move is leaving Dr. Walker. He is an extraordinary vet and one of the most caring, wonderful people I've ever met. I know what it's like to try to find quality care for your pets: not always easy. With Dr. Walker, you can be confident that your pet has the best care possible.

I usually don't write reviews for stuff but I love Gateway Animal Hospital so much!! My one cat Toby ADORES Dr. Walker and I won't take him to anyone else. Dr. Walker really takes the time to hold Toby and make him calm and comfortable before beginnning the exam. He really takes his time and addresses all of my questions. My other cat, two dogs, and any number of found strays are a little more amenable to change and have seen Dr. Brenner and she is just as competent and caring as Dr. Walker. And, to many other poster's points, Gateway Animal Hospital cares about the animals in their care. NOT padding the bill!! Though they are not *cheap* and also keeing in mind that cheap does not equate to best, my vote is that Gateway Animal hospital is the Best Value on the Main Line for quality, compassionate care!

Dr. Brenner took care of my beloved kitty for all of his 16 1/2 years and I couldn't have hoped for a more loving and talented vet. I had many emergency situations w/ my cat and each and every time Dr. Brenner was honest, caring and always putting my pet first. Unfortunately I just recently had to put him down which was absolutely devastating to me, however, it was made less painful because of Dr. Brenner's sensitivity, care, and love for my best pal and her support of me through this horrible ordeal. When I have a new pet, I can't wait to bring him/her to Dr. Brenner, as I consider her a part of my family. Everyone should have a Dr. Brenner for their pets!

All their vets, Dave, Amy & Shelly, are three of the best vets I've ever know... more importantly, that my animals have ever known! We have multiple dogs, cats and a parrot and have been going to them for 22 years with our pets. Their unparalleled diagnostic and surgical skills, coupled with the obvious love and care, have been critical in keeping my babies healthy and living longer. Don't know what I'd do without them.

Pros: Caring, loving and incredible talent

Cons: None

Dr. Walker and his crew are the best! I have taken my dogs and cat to Gateway for a few years. Before that we used several vets in Wayne that seemed more interested in padding the bill than the health of my pets. Dr. Walker is just the opposite. We always leave knowing that our pets have been given the best care possible. Dr. Walker is a gem-really!

Dave Walker is the most extraordinary vet, not to mention person, I have ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable and leaves no stone unturned when it comes to a diagnosis, solving a pet health issue, etc. He is caring and compassionate and makes you feel that you and your pet are the most important thing he has on his calendar. I never feel rushed; he answers all of my questions and explains things in "layman terms". My two dogs adore him - he talks to them and makes certain that they're comfortable before he begins any examination. I feel very blessed that I found him!

Although I would recommend Gateway Animal Hospital for routine care, that would be the extent of anything positive I would say about them. Many years ago, when I was very young, I started going there with multiple pets I was taken aback by one vets dishonesty and audacity after one of my pets was brutally attacked and injured by a vicious neighbor, and had to be euthanized immediately. Even though it was extremely obvious that this trauma was human inflicted and verified by a vet and numerous vet techs to me and my family... When questioned by the authorities it was brushed off for whatever reason as an accident. I will never forgive or forget that incident and the injustice that was furthtered by this hospital and I will never go back. The care was effective and adequate but heartless.

Business Response:

How Long Ago? I took over the operation of Gateway Animal Hospital in 1996. I believe that what this reviewer describes did not occur during the 12 1/2 years I have operated the practice and is therefore not a fair or reasonable evaluation.

I brought my cat, Simon, to Dr. Dave from a fancy vet in Exeter on 422 that $aw your pet a$ income generator$ only. They wanted to use anesthesia to clean my older cats teeth. They made me cage my cat who has never been in one. I researched Dr. Dave and upon meeting him he cleaned my cats teeth, as I held the cat! He was so gentle the cat didn't even mind. He snipped his nails in seconds and showed me how as well. Amazingly, I didn't get the $25 nail trim fee my old vet loved to charge. He said anesthesia was also dangerous and unnecessary for my cat and his situation. I have since moved from Valley Forge, PA to NJ and drive back to Wayne, just so Dr. Dave can treat Simon when needed. He is an amazing, honest and straight forward vet that Simon and me were lucky to discover.

I had been taking my 15 year old cat to another Vet in King of Prussia who shall remain nameless, but is on Gulph Road. I have never left her in the 15 years and he made me leave her for a week. When I got her back, her leg was almost broken and I didn't realize it until I got home. When I called back, he told me he couldn't help her and to take her somewhere else. AFTER ALMOST 16 YEARS OF TREATING HER!!!! I was distraught. I was recommended by a friend to go to Gateway. They took me that same day and It turned out she had a large tumor in her stomach and I had to put her to sleep that day. As traumatizing as that entire experience was, Shelley was so warm, caring and thoughtful and really helped me. The entire staff was so sympathetic and I thank them all. I have been taking my other cat there for the past 2 years and I love them!!!!!

Amy Brenner is the most caring vet imaginable. She takes her time, explains things clearly and relates wells to dogs and masters. I would recommend her to any dog owner.
