Doctor Steve is a wonderful vet and a very kind person.  His caring and affection for my dog when she was in trouble made her better and kept us from bad anxiety.  He is knowledgable and considerate.  My dog loves him and I'm so happy he is her Vet.  5 stars!!!   Abby K. - Sarasota

...I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate that you're just a phone call away and thank you for being there, as always, when I need you the most!   Karen B. - Sarasota

You are without a doubt the only Vet I have ever known who exhibits such empathy, kindness, dignity and understanding when called to put down a pet such as my Whitaker who gave me 15 yrs. of love and devotion. Thank you with all my heart.  You are truly an extraordinary Vet.   Dr. Helen S. - Sarasota

I have been a client of Dr. Steven Gottschalk for more than 15 years.  I found him when my cat Sophia began to no longer tolerate vet office visits and needed care. Since then he has tended to and helped my furry family (cats and dogs) immeasurably with his knowledge, skill, intelligence and kindness.  I believe Dr. Gottschalk to be more than an amazing veterinarian; he is truly a "whisperer" who tunes into what an animal really needs in order to heal.  I can't thank him enough for his compassion and care throughout these years.  Emily L. - Sarasota
