Ken Goldrick has been our pets doc since we moved here in 2015 and I cant express how much we appreciate his caring, thorough approach to our pets health. He really seems to love his job and every time we visit, I feel more like hes a family friend than a doc that sees my pets a couple of times per year. He is clearly an animal lover, but hes also one of the most genuine, compassionate, smart vets Ive ever worked with. He and the Family Pet team keep such good records - they really make it easy to take the best possible care of our pets, in the midst of busy work and school schedules. They consistently push to exceed the standard of care - they dedicate time to CE regularly, which is so important, in this rapidly-changing field. They have this great combination of experience and enthusiastic energy among their veterinarians, which elevates their practice, as a team. They are our partners in caring for our furry family members and I recommend them to anyone looking for primary care vets in chicago. Im a specialty vet, myself, so I know how diverse the quality of care can be among some clinics here in Chicago, but with Family Pet, I know that my pets will be treated like family. They are the best!”
Everyone is so friendly! Because our dog was sick while our vet was away we worked with different veterinarians. I spoke on the phone to one doctor and we went in for an appointment with another doctor and both were so friendly and knowledgeable. And of course the staff is the best, too! I remarked to my husband that Family Pet must find the kindest of the most qualified staff for their practice because I didnt know that much wonderful energy could exist in one place. It makes it easier when the little ones are sick.
Being in medical care myself, I am acutely aware of a well-run medical/vet office. Family Pet is the BEST run medical care office I have ever seen. They check all the boxes that I look for when either I, or a member of my family (including the four-legged kind) are receiving care from a professional. I whole-heartedly recommend Family Pet Animal Hospital for the care of your beloved pets!"
Dr. Oran and the entire staff at Family Pet have been an amazing resource and provider for my cat, Bjorn. He had trouble with tail biting earlier this year, and Dr. Oran remained empathetic, curious, and tireless to help us get to the bottom of the issue through several medicinal trials, a food trial, and Bjorns unique set of quirks. I’m so grateful to everyone at FPAH for clearly communicating with me throughout this process, and for always providing me with assistance and guidance through more routine questions as well. Thank you!
Family Pet is the absolute best. I’ve never felt so comfortable leaving my kitties in anyone else’s care. The staff is so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Dr. Goldrick goes above and beyond, and really makes it obvious that he loves the animals. It’s as if he adores my pets as much as they adore him. I’m truly in love with this practice. Thank you guys so much!
My dogs and I have been loyal clients of Family Pet for 25 years. There is no comparison in Chicago. They are simply the BEST, most educated, and consistently professional Veterinary Hospital in Chicago.
Dr. Ken Goldrick and staff are 5 Stars in knowledge, kindness, compassion and execution..., ETC! I highly recommend Dr. Ken and Family Pet to friends and anyone searching for high quality care for their pet
Dr. Lohmar saved my dog’s life. I would recommend this hospital, Dr. Lohmar and the entire professional, caring and wonderful staff any day of the week.
My pets have been loyal patients for almost 20 years! No other testimonials should be necessary :-). Outstanding care, knowledge, and compassion. Every member of the Team makes my pet and ME matter! Bravo.
I love Family Pet. I love that the doctors and techs take lots of time to talk with me. I love how customer service-oriented everything about your practice is -- from letting me & my pets stay in the exam room to check out, to establishing the portal, to everything else. I especially like that your staff does a follow up call every time after I bring in my pets (or call) with a problem. That really helps me ask more questions, provide better care for my pet, and feel more comfortable. I love that the doctors are very knowledgeable, and that they are available for consult all the time. Overall, a wonderful practice.
