I have been going to Jack for almost 25 years. I moved out of the area for a few years and had to go to another vet. Let me tell you I sorely missed Dr. Jack and was thrilled to be able to return to him when I moved back! Jack is thorough with his exams. You can see he truly knows his stuff and loves his profession. It isn't a job for him, it's a passion. He will explain things to you making sure you have the knowledge to take great care of your beloved pets. He makes himself available. You won't get the bums rush from him. It happens now and then when I go there that I wait an extra half hour to get in. Thats just life. I know when he is with my dog, his mind and attention is on nothing else. I highly recommend Jack Unterburger and Pine Bush Animal Hospital.

Absolutely the BEST vet practice to take your pets! My first experience was routine exams for my lab and my min pin. Dr. Jack was very thorough and actually got down on the floor to care for my lab! I could tell from the beginning that he was truely an animal lover AND a caring person! Since then I have brought my severely injured cat in for emergency jaw surgery and Dr. Jack and Dr. Evans saved her life! Dr. Evans performed a tricky "miracle" surgery on my cat, wiring her severley crushed and broken jaw. I was expecting an outrageous vet bill, but was sursprised at how reasonable it was including her being in the hospital for 5-6 days! I can't say enough GREAT THINGS about Dr. Jack, Dr. Evans , the staff, and this wonderful, caring practice!

Kiko, really? Okay, 1st, I find it hilarious that you have the same name as my cousin's cat. 2nd, I've taken it upon myself to jump to the conclusion that you work for 1 of Dr. Jack's competitors & are trying to steer business away from him. My pets have been going to him since I was in diapers some 30+ years ago. I have NEVER gone into his office & had to wait on 1 of the girls behind the desk to check me in, I've NEVER had an unneeded test ordered, let along had a test that was ordered redone, unless it was years later. I've NEVER been given meds & not told how to use them, I usually get told several times how to administer them in fact. The place DOES NOT smell. Yes, there's hair here & there, but not tumble weeds of it as you made it sound. It's a vet office, there's going to be hair, deal with it! Yes, Dr. Jack "likes to talk." He also likes to make sure you understand EVERYTHING that's going on with your pet. God forbid a doctor wants you to understand everything. Yes, there's usually a pretty lengthly wait, it's well worth it & when was the last time you went to any kind of doctor & didn't have to wait? I can't remember the last time I didn't. And what's with the comment about small business trying to pay the bills? Do you have something against small business? This country was built on them, not Home Depot, McDonald's & Wal Mart. Plus the man's been in practice for decades, I think he's proven he can pay his bills & still charge a more than reasonable rate. The man has the memory of an elephant. He's caring, knowledgeable & sensitive, as is his staff. My mother passed away almost a year ago, I knew he didn't know about it because he wasn't at her service. (My fianc's grandparents used to take their pets to Dr. Jack, he was at both of their wakes & he felt horrible that he was out of state for me friend's grandfather's service because he wanted to go.) I'd been avoiding going to Jack's because he always asks how my mom is & I didn't want to have to tell him she passed away. I had to take my cat to him yesterday (which is how I came upon your review, I came to this site for the phone number, since I have no clue what I did with it), sure enough he asked how mom was doing. Mom's death was sudden & I'm not dealing well with it. I started crying before I even told him she passed away. He asked when, I told him December 3rd. He looked at me & said "Oh my God, almost a year ago." I shook my head yes. This man started to tear up, hugged me & kept repeating that he was sorry & if he knew he would have been there. Human doctors should have such a bed side manor. You won't find a better vet than Dr. Jack. Quite frankly Kiko, if you're offended by hair & smells, I don't think you should own any pet. They all shed at some point & they all smell at some point.

It seems people like to go the Pine Bush Animal Hospital for Dr. Jack. However, the place is dirty with full of dog & cats hair and it smells. We trusted good recommendations of Dr. Jack, so we took our dog for his ear infection. He seems he was nice, but he did not even let me talk but we decided to stick with him for our dog's neutering. However we felt we were betrayed after we found out that Dr. Jack was not the doctor who did surgery. The management in the office is so poor that made us retest something that Dr. Jack did not order or approve. They hand over the medications without explaining what they are for or when to start. When we call for questions, long wait and the last appointment we had was 40 mins wait in a small smelly exam room. There is only one administrative person who sits with her computer. It takes long time to get her attentions to even talk, and ask questions. Dr. Jacks likes to talk but not listen, concludes for what we like to hear. He can't follow up because he is busy?? All the test results we hear are different from the tech and doctor or a girl who answers the phone so we do not know, why we are retested and what for?? and why we had to come back many times ?? to pay for the tests we didi not need? or pay for revisit fee of $35?? or Dr. Jack's expensive time that he can't even follow up. He is the doctor who seems care for all the patients-animals but I would say, another Vet who looks friendly and care for everyone, but another small business trying to pay their bills.

I absolutely love Dr. Jack and the Pine Bush Animal Hospital. The staff is friendly, prices are reasonable and Dr. Jack is amazing. He is very patient in explaining everything you want to know about your pet and takes the time to teach you important things about your pet and the best way to keep him/her healthy. He genuinely cares! When my dog got into some medicine at 9:00 at night every other emergency vet wanted to charge me $100 just to talk, but when I called Dr. Jack on his home phone (which he provides on the office's answering machine for emergencies) he stayed on the phone with me and walked me through every step to my dogs safety, without charging me a dime. I highly recommend Pine Bush animal hospital, you will be very pleased and your pets will thank you for taking them to such a good Dr :-)

I find Dr. Unterberger to be very attentive, seems to genuinely like the animals. My breed of dog has been noted to develop an uncommon disease & Dr. took time to call research facility to learn more about it. I find the fees to be very reasonable, compared to other vets I have used. When he learned that cost was a concern, he made several suggestions about scheduling and treatment that would keep the costs down. Not at all pushy about vaccines - explains the pros and cons of the optional ones - you decide. On the minus side, I have never been seen within 15 minutes of my appointment time. Be prepared for a wait.

i would never take my cats any where else than Dr. Jacks. he is so nice and he explains eveything to you. We have been going to him for so many years and have never had any problems with his care or his staff. We made mystake of going to other vet , but boy we came back to him for the best care. Plus he makes you feel he cares not only for your pets but he cares about you also .

Karen, my friend, I agree, 110% with you. I have known Jack for that long and I can say that he is one of a kind. I'm looking forward to bringing all of my crew (5 doggies, 3 pups, there, all the time). He's such a good vet that it's worth the hour wait to see him.

I have been a client of Dr Jack's for over a decade. I know me and my furry family members are always well cared for. His bed side manner makes going to the doctor as pleasant as can be. His staff is wonderful. He has made me a better and more informed pet owner by always offering an explanation of treatment and procedures while always keeping it at a home town doc feel.
