I don't know what I'd do without Dr. Ober and his practice. He's been nothing but compassionate, skilled and amazing from day one. First of all, he charges HALF what other area vets do. That's because he doesn't pour his money into a fancy office or stunning presentation- everything he invests is in the animals that come through his door. Second, when you call after hours, you get his personal number. Not a machine. You talk directly to HIM.
Don't be fooled by his slightly wild appearance and eccentric bedside manner. He's well educated. Ask him where he got his degree, and I think you might be surprised. He's not some back-woods hick, like some commenters seem to think. He could be making 10x as much as he does, but he chooses to provide "country vet" services.
If you want pretty, go to some air conditioned place in town and pay thousands. If you want effective, compassionate, caring, and a relationship with a vet who actually gives a crap about your pets, come to Dr. Ober.
Dr Obre saved my dogs life, he is a vet who really knows animals, he looked at my Great BIG Pyrenees as soon as we walked into his office, he saw how sick she was, he scoped her up in his arms and carried her to a table where he got her on IV and meds right away, he quickly drew her blood sample and sent it out to get tested almost immediately, even though he knew she had Addison’s, he did all the test to get a firm confirmation. He linked us to people to help with her care. He will not buy medicines from companies who are known to make drugs which are not the best, or drugs with negative side effects, that is why he sells all pet meds at his clinic; to be sure the pets get only the real and best meds. My dogs care and meds were quoted to me at 3 times his rate by other vets. The cost of his service and meds are far less than other vets in the area, believe me I checked them all. If it was not for John Obre my dog, a beautiful 2 year old rescued Great Pyrenees would have died in 2009, he saved her life, and was very considerate towards me as a new graduate student, he is our HERO. Its 2012 and my dog is six now and she sees Dr Obre every month for her shot and meds, as that is a necessity for dogs with Addison’s disease. He is a true country vet who deeply cares for animals and who knows his craft well.
Almost killed my dog – My dog went in to get spayed and was almost killed. She was left bleeding internally. We brought he back because we knew something was wrong we were told that she was constipated after he felt her stomach. The hard ball he felt turned out to be a large blood clot that had formed. We took her to another vet they did emergency surgery and saved her life. I will never go back again as my dog is too important to me. In the end we have spent almost 2000.00 dollars because of his poor care.
Check what you will be charged first – Dr. Ober will not write a scrip to be used at Pet Meds or other online providers. You must buy drugs for your pet from him and his prices are very high.
HANDS DOWN BEST VET IN CENTRAL NY WORTH THE DRIVE – I have been to John Ober's office twice on emergency visits. my cat for emergency surgery and my dog was hit tonight by a car.. turnout unknown as i wright this review i know my dog is in the best hands.. i would just simply like to say that i absolutely could not and would not expect better care for my animals.
lets get to the nitty gritty reality ...
some people are true healers when you meet john you will understand he is one of these gifted individuals.. secondly these people do not want excessive amounts of your money.. I can say with no doubt that John wants your animals healthy, he also wants to do this at a price that has seemed very low in my experiences emergency or checkup... There prices are beyond reasonable.. please give your sick or hurt animal a fairly priced second chance at candor animal care...
Almost Couldn't Have Asked For Better! – Self-defined "old-fashioned country vets" these people are wonderful and personable. They provided, fast, informative care for my Siberian Husky who needed emergency surgery on her knees at HALF the price of the vet in Lansing. I called at 9am on a Thursday morning and they took her in immediately, even allowing my parents to stop by and pick up a small stretcher for ease of transport. They took the time to explain to us what was going on and how it would be repaired. The vet called me at 8:00 that same night to let me know how it had gone and what to expect on her return home. I was able to pick up my dog the following afternoon, with DETAILED instructions on her recovery care.
These people are true animal lovers and clearly care about what happens to those brought to them. They also provide pet massage and chiropractic services! Who would have thunk it!?
My one complaint was that the place was a bit below par as far as LOOKING professional. It's located in a historic home in Downtown Candor that has been converted. I would have liked to have seen things with a bit more care taken for first impressions. It was clean and there was not odors, it just felt "unfinished" in its presentation. But, again... as they said, "We're just old fashioned country vets"... and I'm okay fine with that. The care is what matters more than the appearance and the care was SUPERB.
Amazing vets! – Drs. Ober are wonderful! They listen to your problems and will use traditional as well as "alternative" treatment methods--whichever you are more included to--to treat any issues with your pets. Very progressive attitudes towards nutrition and holistic living with your pets. Instead of a standard response of "feed your dog science diet and pop this pill", they try to work more with whole-body treatment, trying to treat the cause of any issues, as opposed to the symptoms.
