"I have been a member of 'The Gables' family for 24 years now.
In that time they have been wonderful carers for my dogs, both past and present.. Marc, Steven and Veterinary team continue to be compassionate, knowledgeable and professional through all the good and bad times. They always take the time to ensure that I am clearly aware of all situations and make me feel like my dog is their favourite! 
I wouldn't trust anyone else with my fur kids, and appreciate everything that Marc and Barb has done for me and my pets over the years.
I highly recommend 'The Gables' team to everyone.
Jan and Bailey, Monash  (September 2016)

"Marc and Steven, plus the full team that surrounds them, are all very focused on the animals that are brought to them in their time of need.  Once again they have looked after one of our dogs that we were very concerned about.  
They have been our Vets of choice for many many years, and we have no hesitation to recommending them to you and your pets.
Horses, dogs, pig!  Cats as well I would think.  
Thank you once again".

"Thanks everyone for the great care of my two furkids, especially to Marc'.
Paula Bvl, Canberra, ACT

After the retirement of my long time vet, i was referred to Dr Marc at the Gables at Monash... I'm considered "extremely overly protective" of my pugs and therefore am very selective re my vet! 

Two years on and i drive an hour each way to see Dr Marc and the incredible team at The Gables Group! The genuine care and attention my dogs receive is second to none.It's rare to find a vet who genuinely like pugs and I've happily recommended people to the Clinic!

One serious eye injury was,I thought beyond saving,but thanks to Dr Marc's skill and care, we have a happy healthy pug with two eyes! 

In short, for me the team at The Gables is "the team when only the best will do"

 "Where people and pets come first...."
" Awesome vet clinic - all my pets have been there over the years and everytime they have received the best of care.  This week my cat was bitten by a snake - I had no idea what was wrong but Dr Steven Mac and his team swung into action very quickly and saved my beloved cat's life.  He received excellent care, I was phoned everyday with updates and was welcomed to visit him.  My kitty came home and is enjoying the cuddles and love.  I am so thankful for your excellent team, care and service'.

"We love the Gables. Wouldn't go anywhere else. The nurses are fabulous!" 


"24 years we've been attending both clinic; from 3am on a Sunday morning to today, with a very unhappy Max who thankfully finally expelled a grass seed from his salivary gland.

Thanks Marc, Steven, Barb, Ellen, Peta and all other staff going back over the years for such dedicated service. The various dogs, cats, sheep and calves have appreciated it!"

“GABLES - Great vet, lovely staff – and super to have a local alpaca vet – yeah!”

"I have been coming to 'The Gables' for longer than I can remember – the personal service and care given is beyond comparison for all my furry and feathered ones. I feel very proud to be a client of 'The Gables' – couldn't live without everyone here..."

“The Gables' is the BEST, and we wouldn't go anywhere else. Marc is awesome....” 
Bob and Audrey Natali (The family K9s!), Canberra, ACT
“We first met Marc and Barbara around 20 years ago when none of us had a hint of grey hair or wrinkles. 

Over all those years and the pets we have had, we have always been immensely impressed with the professionalism, empathy, and compassion that have been displayed.

Marc is hugely knowledgeable and highly skilled both in the diagnosis and surgical procedures; his ability to explain complex medical issues in a way that is easy for people like us to understand is both impressive and reassuring. 

Barbara manages the day-to-day operation of the practice very efficiently, and she brings a warmth that makes us see our relationship with the people at The Gables as something that makes a big positive impact on the quality of our pets' lives.

As far as we are concerned, our pets are family, and we look to have them treated in a way that reflects our love for them. We believe we get this in spades from The Gables team.”
Gai, Tom and Laura Thompson, Gowrie, Tuggeranong, ACT

“Dear Marc, Barb and all at 'The Gables' i.e. both the Monash and Karabar Clinics:
We've had the pleasure of having Marc as our vet for over 17 years now, and he's seen us through some complex diagnosis, treatments, much happiness and, of course, some sadness. 
I've always felt 100% comfortable with Marc's professional approach, his recommendations on courses of action, his ability to relate to our level of understanding with our animals and always, at the same time, maintaining a high degree of compassion. His advice has never failed, and we know to listen intently to it given his breadth of experience. His surgical skills have never ceased to amaze us, and we've had some terrific outcomes because of this.
This, coupled with Marc's wonderful team of lovely vet nurses and his wife, Barb, who have always formed special bonds with our animals, makes the hard times somewhat easier, knowing that you are supported by such an amazing group of skilled and caring people.
We've never looked past Marc and his team and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a vet clinic that goes the extra mile and offers great service with the animals' interest at heart.”
Kelly and Andrew, Googong, NSW 
“Having a quality Veterinary clinic in your suburb is extremely fortunate, and located within a short walking distance is just fantastic. When we moved into Monash 20 years ago, we were thrilled that Marc and Barbara selected our suburb to call home. 
“From the very beginning, Marc and Barbara developed strong connections with the Monash community, not only as a highly professional veterinary practice but also on a personal level as a family growing up in the suburb and sharing experiences with neighbours. The Gables has always prided itself on the personal touch, and when you visit the clinic, it is like visiting old friends. The staff are always extremely professional and caring, and the family atmosphere within the clinic makes both you and your ‘best mate’ feel very much at home. 
“We have been very fortunate to have all our beautiful beagles given the best possible care at the Gables over the years. In fact, when some pets are a little reluctant to visit a vet, all of my girls have had to be dragged along when on walks past the clinic, in the hope that they may get a ‘tit bit’ from one of the kind nurses if we happened to poke our noses in the front door. 
“The Gables is synonymous with outstanding veterinary care and a friendly warmth in dealing with all clients. Marc and Barbara and their excellent staff are wonderful friends of the Monash community.” 
Regards,
Graeme and Antonia Matthew, Monash, ACT
