  • "Dr Gealow and staff were wonderful! They took the time to make our dog, Zoey, feel comfortable and calm instead of just a quick in and out. They also explained everything throughly to me along with some advice of how to acclimate Zoey with our baby on the way. I really appreciated the care they gave our dog and would highly recommend!"
    Megan C.
  • "Dr. Gealow is tremendous. The doctor clearly communicates in as much detail as desired by the client; going into depth when asked. Dr. Gealow is compassionate, tremendously skilled and will provide various scenarios for possible remedies. All the techs who I encountered and in particular Rachel, showed poise, knowledge and respect for both patient and owner. I am forever grateful to Dr. Gealow for the care of my beloved cat - thru his final moments. Thank you to the entire staff."

  • "Dr Lauren went above and beyond to help my kitties. She and her staff are knowledgeable and professional. I am so glad we have this wonderful vet clinic in our community!"

  • "Dr. Gealow and her staff have been truly amazing! We had a sick pup all summer and she began losing a significant amount of weight. It was a truly awful time but Optimum Veterinary Clinic was supportive, patient, and comforting throughout the entire process. Our pup was finally diagnosed with a rare condition for her breed and we’ve been on the happy road to recovery. It’s very clear that Dr. Gealow and her staff truly love animals and it showed in their care."

  • "I can not thank Dr Gealow and her staff enough for helping my thirteen year old dog. My dog just wasn’t herself and we made an appointment to see Dr Gealow. She checked her out and did some tests and concluded that she was very anemic. We were lucky to have Dr Gealow. She gave me a couple of options one was very expensive (transfusions) and the other less expensive. With some medications and lots of love, she is better.
    Thank you for all that you do!"
    Raylene L
  • "We have 3 dogs that Optimum takes care of for us. We can't say enough about the quality of care they receive.5 + stars!"
    Dawn S.
  • "It can be difficult to trust someone with the health of your pets. The wonderful staff at Optimum love my kitties almost as much as I do. I have a scaredy cat and the vet and nurse examined her where she was comfortable, on the floor. They have been there for me during a kitty emergency, and for the general health of my pets."

  • ""With Dr. Gealow in charge of our dogs' health, we will have those muddy paw prints and dog hair accessories for a long time!""
