Dr. Gadusek and his staff are friendly, helpful, informative...I can't come up with enough positive adjectives for them. He explains everything in terms I could understand, from use of flea collars to declawing. He has a soothing voice and makes me and my cat feel completely comfortable and never talks down to me. The first time I took Vanilla to him she had a mild cold. Within a week after our first visit I received a handwritten card, saying he hoped Vanilla's cold was doing better and to call him if I needed anything.

What I especially love about the office is that it doesn't smell overly medical. I haev walked into other veterinary offices and the scent of medicine and cleaners was overwhelming, I can't imagine what that would smell like for my pet. Dr. Gadusek's office is clean, and bright.

I also love his honesty when it comes to my cat's care. He never says that my questions are silly. He calmed my fears about declawing my cat, and explained the pros and cons of both sides. When he did the surgery, his staff would call me with updates. They always treat Vanilla, an me, exceptionally well.

My pets love going to this vet. The clinic is spotless and the staff is wonderfully courteous and attentive. They even come out from behind the counter to greet my dogs. Dr. Gadusek explains my pet's problems and answers my questions in ways I can understand. He has given new life to my old painful dog by using a laser on his hips when nobody else was able to help his pain and I was ready to put him to sleep. I would recommend him to anybody that wants a compassionate caring vet for their pets!

I went to this vet for many years - would recommend him highly. He was always friendly, and my cats loved him (they don't like many people). He was knowledgeable and sensitive to financial issues I was having at the time. Contrary to the other opinion posted on here, he actually advised me NOT to over vaccinate - was always careful to not give my cats any more medicine than they needed. I would still be going to this vet if I hadn't moved.

I kept putting off having my Lab, Jesse, spayed. Though I was advised over the years that I should do it. She is 13 years old. I noticed that she was losing her energy and losing weight. I thought it was because she was just getting old. Then she started vomiting. I called Central Bucks Animal Hospital early in the morning and they told me to come right over and they would fit me in. Within 1 hour, they took x-rays and found my dog had a uterus infection and emergency surgery needed to be done. They ran bloodwork to make sure anesthesia would be safe and did the surgery over their lunch time. Jesse went home that evening. She is now back to her old self. Everyone there was very understanding and compassionate. Dr Frank took lots of time to explain what had happened and why and eased my fears. They did a wonderful job!!PS. Don't let this happen to your dog. Get her spayed early!

I took my dog to this vet for almost 3 years. They were nicer to her than the last vet I had been taking her to & didn't just assume that she was a mean dog(the only positive thing about taking her there). She began having skin issues for which the vet sold me several temporary remedies such as shampoos, antibiotics & antiyeast pills. None of which worked long term. In December, I took my dog to get her"yearly vaccinations" which at this time consisted of Parvovirus & Lyme. Within less than 2 weeks she began showing symptoms such as blood in her stool & ataxia (lightheadedness & swaying while walking). I took her to an emergency vet hospital in the area & within 20 minutes she was diagnosed with Immune-Mediated Thrombocytpenia (severely low platelet count). I was told that my dog had a 60% chance of surviving. We had to leave her there so that she could receive medications & fluids & be monitored & cared for. Over the next few days my husband & I had not slept at all worrying about her & what was going to happen. We called to get updates on how she was doing all through out the days & nights. On the second night, they called to let us know that she needed a blood transfusion, which was expected. On the third day we went to visit her(as we did every day) & they put us in a room to wait for them to bring her back to spend time with us. The doctor suddenly came into the room & told us that she had barked when she heard us in the room talking & then suddenly crashed. They were able to get her heartbeat back but that she was not effectively breathing on her own. They gave her more blood to try to save her but it did not work. On that heart-wrenching day, we had to make the decision to let our little girl go. She was only 5 & 1/2 years old. At the emergency hospital they told us that they believe that it was from being given vaccinations that she did not neccesarily need, after many other causes were ruled out. Now, I have to live with the guilt of taking her to get those vaccinations & thinking that I was helping her to live a longer, healthier life. When, in reality, I helped to end her life. My husband & I went up to speak to the vet about what had happened. I told him that I wanted to report the incident to the pharmaceutical company that manufactured the vaccinations. He told me that they probably wouldn't do anything about it? He seemed somewhat unconcerned & unaffected by our presence & our situation. After speaking to him about it & breaking down into tears at his office, we left. We received no sympathy card or anything offering condolences or appreciation for the business we had given him for almost 3 years? In doing research on the topic of over-vaccination I also found out that many skin problems such as Dermatitis often happen as a result of certain vaccinations. Again, I was never told about that by my vet & my dog really suffered from her skin problems for almost 2 years...he just continued to give her her vaccinations & I foolishly trusted him. I am now in search of a vet that might actually truly care about the well-being of my animal & not just the profit he's making every year. Some politicians are trying to pass a law to require vets to give out information disclosure forms to pet owners before adminisitering vaccinations that will inform people of the risks & benefits of vaccinations. So far, they have not been successful because many, but not all, vets are protesting that it will effect their profit too much. Please know that I am not saying that pets should never be vaccinated, but that they need to be vaccinated according to their lifestyle (indoor,outdoor, area where you reside,etc...) & you can ask about getting blood titer tests before getting your animal vaccinated as this can help in evaluating which antibodies your animal already has to protect them from certain dieases (therefore eliminating the need for some vaccinations & eliminating the unncessary risk for dangerous reactions/side effects & even death). I would not recommend this veterinarian at all whether it be because of his lack of education or the selfish choice to vaccinate animals unnecessarily regardless of the possible, dangerous outcomes. And because of his lack of appreciation for business & insensitivity. If your pet means to you what my little girl meant to me you'll do more research & look for a vet who truly has your pet's best interest in mind. Isn't that what being a veterinarian is all about???
