Can't recommend more.Paul G.Paul G. ★★★★★ Brought my dog Theo because he was bitten by another dog. Dr. Sullivan and his assistant (Jenny I think was her name) were both very kind and knowledgeable. It was clear that to them the patient is my dog and Dr. Sullivan put Theo at ease. They checked for signs of infection or fever, gave Theo a physical and removed tartar from his front teeth which I felt went above and beyond. The pricing for our visit very fair and comparable to other animal hospitals I’ve been to in the suburbs. Thank you for taking care of my dog.Stephany J S.Stephany J S. ★★★★★ I highly recommend this place if you live in Chicago. I feel so comfortable that my dogs are getting the best care. I missed a call from Dr Sullivan and I called back later and I was able to speak with him directly. He explained things in a way that made sense to me and that is so hard to find. Not only that but he wasn’t even my original doctor but wanted to give me results asap. I wish I could remember the name of the original doctor who was also so thorough, caring and patient. I appreciate it bc we all know how anxiety inducing going to the vet with a problem with our animals can be.Lindsey M.Lindsey M. ★★★★★ Great clinic for annual check ups. I brought my kittens here to get checked out and preventative care and it was a quick, easy visit.Dave N.Dave N. ★★★★★ Extraordinary personnel: Dr. Whistler, Jenny, Caleb, et. al. are always professional and caring and knowledgeable and, most of all, very passionate about all of the animals in their care.Thomas B.Thomas B. ★★★★★ THE BESTkelly S.kelly S. ★★★★★ I had a wonderful experience at Uptown Animal Hospital. The staff was professional and welcoming and they treated my new pet with care!Wade S.Wade S. ★★★★★ COMPETENT WITHOUT THE RUNAROUND. When several other veterinary offices woke up and chose stupidity, the staff here chose competence, kindness, timeliness, and professionalism. Despite being busy, they were very compassionate and accommodating with my dog. I didn’t ask for special treatment - I just needed my dog taken care of. I believe competence should be rewarded, so my money and my dog now go here. Lucky to have found this crew.jake O.jake O. ★★★★★ Very helpful and friendly staff. Easy to make last minute appointment.Robin P.Robin P. ★★★★★ The friendliest vets and assistants! They cleaned my cat's carrier after he had an accident in it on the way to our appointment.

I also appreciate that I can get a pretty quick response from a vet or vet tech when I have questions!Emily M.Emily M. ★★★★★ Uptown Animal Hospital is great. Easy and proresional staff. I've been going there for 8 years with all good experiences.Ryan L.Ryan L. ★★★★★ AMAZING PEOPLE!!! On our very first visit, our husky was due for all of her vaccinations. She is notorious for screaming (not barking) because she is extremely nervous at the vet. The team made sure she was calm and comfortable – she didn't scream once! By the end of the appointment, she was so comfortable that she was laying on the floor ready for belly rubs and a nap. Love this place, truly an Andersonville gem!Andrew S.Andrew S. ★★★★★ Caring staff- always polite, kind, friendly and professional. They care deeply about the pets that they see.

They were gentle with my dog and answered all our questions. I’ve even had to call them in an emergency situation and they were right on top of it. Thanks uptown animal hospital! We’re so grateful to have a neighborhood vet that cares.Erica B.Erica B. ★★★★★ My boyfriend Mike came home to find that his beloved dog passed away last Friday morning. It was completely unexpected, and obviously devastating. In the peak of his distress, at a loss for what to do, he called Uptown Animal Hospital and they compassionately instructed him on his next steps. When he arrived, the same kind woman who he spoke to on the phone was waiting for him with open arms, ready to help however she could. Every staff member there, from the front desk to behind the scenes, were so comforting, supportive, and empathetic, even sending him a sympathy card in the mail with all their signatures and well wishes the following week. While the whole neighborhood has been mourning the loss of Lefty, I know that there are levels of his grief that could not be matched by another. Every time Mike has had to retell the story of what happened that terrible morning, he always makes a point to talk about how wonderful the staff was at Uptown Animal Hospital was to him in a time of real crisis. We are forever grateful and encourage anyone to bring your business their way.Morgan C.Morgan C. ★★★★★ Love it clean, and very helpful staff.Zachery M.Zachery M. ★★★★★ Our rescue needed a check up and Uptown animal hospital was the perfect choice!
