Kennel Technician

We met Dr. Berka when our lab Henry was having some health issues. She helped us through a rough time (and rescued us from an incompetent vet) with love for our dog, compassion for us, and expert medical care for our best furry friend. We would follow her anywhere (and we have for the last 3-4 years). We are so happy she now has her own practice because it means she is sticking around So Cal for good.

Best vet ev-er!!! Lucy, my 2 yr old Boxer, loves Dr. Berka!! No more dragging her into the vet's office. She's super excited to see her doctor now and practically drags me behind her so she can see her!
Hi my name is Alex. I have a dry sense of humor and I love making people laugh. When I'm not working here I can be found shredding the snow boarding slopes with Shawn White. My other passion is competing in plank challenges. I can easily do 20 minutes and if you challenge me I'm sure to win. Cheers and what do you say when a tarantula and spider cross the road? The answer is easy if you think about it. Why....

Pavlov rang a bell and made a dog drool. I like to think the dog drooled and made Pavlov write in his book. It's all in how you look at life and things in general. I'm a striving psychology student with ambitions to help others solve their problem, be it human or animal. I've been lucky enough to live int he area and have been a huge fan of seeing where life takes me. I look forward to analyzing you during your many visits, so lean back and tell me your pet's problems. I'm sure we can diagnose the issues at hand.
Your pet may end up loving her more than you. Paws down, the best furry life saver on Earth!
