Have taken my animals to Dr. Gilbert for 5 years. I have always thought his prices were a little high, but was willing to pay for what I thought was good service. At my most recent visit for my dog's routine shots, I asked for a prescription for flea medication to buy the medication online. Little did I know he was going to charge me $15 dollars just to write the prescriptions! It is called a "Script Fee." I don't know if it is standard for vets to charge a script fee, but I was unhappy with the fact that I had to pay him $15 to write the prescription on top of the $25 office call.
