“I didn’t know that much wonderful energy could exist in one place.”

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. - Suzanne G.

“Family Pet is the BEST run medical care office I have ever seen.”

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! - Mary T.

“[A]mazing resource and provider for my cat”

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! - Kathryn L.

“I’m truly in love with this practice”

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! - Rhiannon L.

“There is no comparison in Chicago”

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. – Jill W.

“5 Stars in knowledge, kindness, compassion and execution”

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. - Jimie V.

“I would recommend this hospital…any day of the week”

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. - Mary L.


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. - Gulcin G.

“I love how customer service-oriented everything about [the] practice is…”

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. - Bebe N.

“We appreciated the attention and caring”

My greyhound was limping, and we were seen within an hour. The staff was concerned and thorough. We appreciated the attention and caring. - Marilyn E.

“I cannot imagine a more comforting, thoughtful group”

I can highly recommend Family Pet. Dr. Van Pelt, Dr. Schwartz and the staff have taken excellent care of our cat Sweet Pea through the years. They correctly recognized that she likely had cancer and referred us to an excellent specialist. When her cancer treatment came to an end, they were extremely supportive and compassionate to both Sweet Pea and me. I cannot imagine a more comforting thoughtful group to help us during a difficult loss. - Calvin B.

“…the best care possible!”

The staff at the hospital is very attentive and quick to respond if I call with a question or concern. I feel my kids (canines) are getting the best care possible! -Robyn L.

“Would not go anywhere else”

Have gone here for my pets care for 16 years. The staff and vets are helpful, cheerful and great with my dog. They really care about animals here. Would not go anywhere else. - Sheryl B.

“Every single person there…has been wonderful.”

I am extremely grateful for the care you have given my dogs. Every single person there, from the desk staff, to the techs, and the vets, has been wonderful. Every time. I hope you all are proud of the culture you have created at Family Pet. - Clare K.

“...very compassionate”

Dr. Ujiki is the best! She does not make me feel rushed during our appointments, and she is very compassionate! - Danielle K.

“I couldn’t be happier with the care”

I have had a relationship with FPAH for more than a decade, and couldnt be happier with the care that my family receives. I love that everybody knows my 14-year-old pittie, Evie, and every time we visit, the staff is very excited to see her. Dr. Ken Goldrick has been our primary vet since he started with FPAH, and our relationship with him is more than we could have ever expected! He cares so much about Evie! Thank you, Family Pet! - Jennifer D.

…compassion for the animals and people shine through”

Dr. Goldrick is a great veterinarian. His knowledge about cats and his compassion for the animals and people shine through. I also want to commend the staff for being such caring people - I always find my interactions with everyone to be informative and enjoyable. -Carol B.

“…goes above and beyond to care for my pets”

Everyone at Family Pet is friendly, caring, knowledgeable, professional and attentive. Very organized whether you are in the office or calling on the phone. Questions are always answered in a timely fashion. My vet, Dr. Lomar always goes above and beyond to care for my pets and the rest of the staff supports her efforts. Even though I live a few neighborhoods away and other good vet options have popped up, I would still choose Family Pet because of the excellent experience I have and continue to have there. Thank you! - Renee M.
