Justine Berger

Branch Partner and Lead Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified in South Africa in 1995 before moving to the area and working as a dedicated small animal vet in Northwest London for 29 years. I have a general practitioner certificate in Feline Practice, and I have a special interest in rehabilitative medicine, including acupuncture. I'm mum to two teenage girls , a rescue crossbreed called Todd, three rescue cats called Madiba , Sheeba and Touché. Being a community vet means that many of my clients have been with me for nearly three decades and I've looked after all their pets and gotten to know all the family and I love that aspect of my job . I enjoy all aspects of soft tissue surgery, medical cases and dentistry including endodontics .

Head Veterinary Nurse

I moved from South Africa in 2005 to follow my passion for animals. I enrolled in college in 2007 and completed my diploma as a Registered, Qualified Veterinary Nurse a few years later while working as a nurse in Medivet HGS. I had already become the Head Nurse and continued to learn and teach through my work. I love dogs, cats and especially small furries. I have a keen and knowledgeable interest in dog behaviour, which started at the age of 16, when I taught my Dalmatians to fetch their food bowls. I've had many pets of my own: 3 Dalmatians, 2 rats, 2 guinea pigs, many rabbits, 5 guinea fowl, and 3 chickens. I have one pet now, Pepper, a peking bantum chicken, who I rescued at 4 days old. She is now 8 years old. I have 2 children, and after a few years break with them, I've returned to Medivet TF and loving it!

Patient Care Assistant

I left my career in the tech industry to follow my passion, working with animals! I joined Medivet in September 2023 and I am loving spending every day with animals, giving them care and attention and watching them make a recovery. At home I have a pet gerbil, and I have spent many years pet sitting and caring for, rehoming and rehabilitating stray cats. My dream is to spend time with, and caring for, wild animals in their natural habitats across the world. An area that also interests me is Animal-Assisted Therapy, where animals who are helped are paired with people who need help, in a beautiful process of mutual healing. I have spent time volunteering in this area and look forward to exploring it more. Advocating for animal rights and welfare is very important to me, as is my work in the (human!) diversity, equity and inclusion space, which I hope to keep up. I look forward to meeting your pets and helping them get back to their normal, happy selves.

I'm a mom of two very energetic little boys, who are my whole world. I was born in South Africa, and grew up on a farm, surrounded by all sorts of animals! My Dad even had a pet monkey!! This is my second time back in London, and my first time ever working at a Vets! I am one of the receptionists at Medivet Temple Fortune (been here for a few months now), and I love all our clients, furry or not 🙂

No complaints. We moved to this one from Hendon which I feel is better. Lovely and friendly staff behind the desk to greet customers. Competent and caring vets. Easier to get to as well as the Hendon vet is on an awful street thats too busy.

We've been coming every week due to an ongoing condition, every time we are seen by a different vet and we get a different opinion. The most extreme example was one saying we've exhausted our round on antibiotics and surgery is required and when I said I wanted my pet's medical history to get a second opinion, suddenly a more senior vet said that another round can actually be given, and after this, that same vet said surgery wouldn't be required. They have offered to submit insurance claim for me, but when I inquired about the status they said this has been taken care of/closed, but I've not heard from the insurance and when I called the insurer they told me they're never received anything from the practice. The admin side seems a blunder, with the receptionist replying that she's new and still learning upon every request which is probably what contributed to my claims getting dropped. I came to this practice due to great review and after belonging to medivet Finchley before it was closed, I thought that another branch would be as good. I was wrong and after the last check up appointment I will find myself another practice

Very expensive :( The vet was lovely and manually express my puppy glands and prescribed him antibiotic and another’s medications not really necessary for my point of view. I paid the full bill of £197 and I found it to be too much. My puppy has had the same problem a month ago and vet Patrick done the same without treatment for a cost of £ 65. If every month I need to pay all this money it’s a big problem as it’s too much, very expensive and the problem is still present. Lovely staff, lovely environment. A pleasure to see all of the them love their job. Thank you

Medivet Temple Fortune was so amazing and supportive going through the loss of my Maltese Lulu. They were so understanding , caring and respectful. I received a complimentary remembrance gift of my Lulu's paw print which was such a surprise and touched my heart. Thank you Medivet Temple Fortune with such gratitude !

The staff here are really wonderful. My cat has health problems for years and they never failed to take care him. They are all so kind and the care for the animals is outstanding. I feel very fortunate to have had them to care for my cat for so long, they have given me more precious time with my darling little friend ❤💕
