The doctors and techs and staff at Animal Medical Center of Chicago are great - they spend the time needed to answer all of my questions and give me confidence that my dog is getting the best, most caring attention possible. They listen and help with even the smallest questions. They are wonderful! Plus, my dog loves going to see them, which speaks volumes for the kind of care they provide for her.

Amazing group of doctors for my three fuzzy kids. Dr Solomon is innovative and thorough, always keenly involved in detailed care of the most challenging cases. My two dog kids need special care and the clinic and staff are superb. Kind, caring and sweet. Thank you!

We had a great experience with this clinic over the years helping us with our beloved, large shepherd mix dog. They were responsive and caring, and often provided multiple options and perspectives for care. They helped us navigate the difficult end of life process with our dog with compassion and patience. When we get another dog I’ll bring them back here. I would recommend this clinic to friends and family.

I can’t say enough about the staff of Animal Medical Center of Chicago! I’ve seen most of the veterinarians there with my pup Marley over the last 2 1/2 years . They are very professional, clearly care about your pet, and do their best provide a fear free environment for my anxious pup. In order to put Marley at ease, Dr. Yacker sat down on the floor with her and gave her her favorite treat of chicken baby food. It definitely put Marley at ease and she showed Dr. Yacker some of her skills, such as high five and spin! If we have a concern about Marley or have test results done, they always call the next day to provide results and check in. Highly recommend!

Dr. Solomon & her team are the best in Chicago. Literally saved my cat’s life & follow up care is incredible. As is routine visit care - we’ve been using this group for nearly a decade & the attention to detail, professionalism, compassion, high quality of care is extraordinary. No matter what the case, I am always rest assured & couldn’t be more confident my cat is in the best hands.

We have used Animal Medical for our prior dog Fritz and now for our puppy Schatze. They are always responsive and very thorough in their explanations. Although we generally ask to see Dr. Solomon, because we personally know her best, we have confidence in all the doctors and staff at the clinic. We would highly recommend them!

The Staff is very respectful, polite, and friendly. The clinic is very clean. The staff gave me full explaination about Sweetie's condition as well as several options about what can be done to correct it. The wait time to be seen was very short. The staff showed genuine concern for Sweetie. They kept me informed about the cost for her meds and test. They also discussed a treatment plan for her that would allow me to afford to pay her bill. I am very thankful to have met them and for doing business with them. I will recommend them to anyone who has a pet.

Funny how their hours of operation say that they are closed, but they have an employee taking out trash loudly every night at 11:30 pm or later for 15-20 minutes. He had also called me at 10 pm asking me to take out recycling that night that I mistakenly put there. I have repeatedly emailed and called and was even told in writing no one worked there after 9 pm. My other neighbors are complaining as well and it continues. I was told no one would use the side door after hours but Mr 11:30 pm dude disagrees. Throughout the day they bang doors loudly and have people loitering outside even though the pandemic restrictions are lifting. They repeatedly have tried to silence me. I have a colleague who says they refused to see her dog. If you want to operate right next to where people live, you can at least be decent about it. If humans are bothered this much, it must be bothering the animals as well. UPDATE they’ve gotten even louder at 11:30 pm since my initial review. Guess I made them angry!

My wife and I were here to put our cat down, the entire staff and process was compassionate and ample time was given to us for this difficult time.

Dr. Janik has been our veterinarian for all our dogs. She is absolutely the best in gently relieving the dog's anxiety, and throughly examining oir corgi. Debbie, is an excellent technician and always there to assist in every way. Dr.Janik is very calm and explains findings in an very understandable way. We have recommended her to all of our friends. Her genuine love for animals and understanding of their human parents is why we would never want another vet.

AMCC is the finest veterinary practice in Chicago. Their facility is state of the Art….staff highly qualified…attentive to all details related to providing for a COVID-19 safe environment. Highly trained doctors and medical assistants. Excellent Communication with patient owners is a top priority. The doctors stay up to date with the latest research. I have been with Dr Solomon and Dr Janick for well over 30 years. All medical personnel are of the same high quality. I rely 100% on the care and treatment my pets receive at Animal Medical Center of Chicago. I recommend them to everyone who is seeking a caring, high quality veterinary practice….you will not be disappointed.

I have been taking all of my four-legged family members to Animal Medical Center of Chicago for the past 20 years. They are THE BEST. I know that my pets will receive quality care, I will receive excellent communication, I know that the doctors and staff really do care. I recently moved and am no longer in the neighborhood but I still drive my pets back to AMC.

Superb first experience with our puppy that had an immediate impact on diet and behavior control recommendations! Great online puppy portal/technology and pre/post appointment communication. Front desk staff was also very helpful during a couple of follow up calls. Also very professional and clean facility and protocols in regards to COVID-19.

Love everyone that works there, and it is clear that everyone there loves my dog and has his best interests at heart. My dog has been coming here since I got him almost 10 years ago. EVERY doctor takes the time with me to make me feel …

Great experience with Dr. England! He was very thorough, responsive, and went the extra-mile on several of the interactions during my visit for my dog. I highly recommend Animal Medical Center of Chicago for your pet needs!

We highly recommend Animal Medical Center. They are professional, kind and really care about their patients and their owners. We had to put down our elderly cat and the experience, although very tough, was incredibly thoughtful and respectful on their part. Dr. Yacker in particular has been really lovely to work with, she takes her time to get to you know and your pet, the time and care that goes into those interactions is really appreciated. We never feel rushed or brushed over by the staff. Highly recommend.

I have been going to Animal Medical Center for years with multiple pets - both cats and dogs. I would not entrust my pets care to anyone else but AMC. All the doctors and staff are extremely responsive, knowledgeable and best of all, caring. I have the upmost confidence in the medical care they provide to all my furry family members.

I've used Animal Medical Center of Chicago for about 3years now for my cat Hobbes and they've been a great resource to have. I'm not sure how price compares but a checkup for my cat is like $85. All the vet's I've seen have been extremely thorough and helpful and you can request specific ones after trying them out.

We are new patients to the Animal Medical Center of Chicago, but have been loyal to our amazing vet Dr. Emily Yacker for our pups entire life. Animal Medical Center of Chicago is a beautiful, fear-free veterinary practice. We've never been inside due to Covid precautions but the garden outside is idyllic. When we arrive at the door, he sprints inside excited to see all of his friends who all know him and seem to genuinely care about him which we so appreciate. When we've had to leave with medicines, they've even decorated the bag with his name. The level of care and love they share is truly amazing! Overall, our care with Animal Medical Center of Chicago has been top-notch. Our pup has a number of health conditions including a heart condition that require a lot of careful attention to details. Dr. Emily Yacker and the entire team at Animal Medical Center of Chicago have exceeded our expectations in always getting to the bottom of things and addressing our pup's care needs accordingly. We have 110% confidence in their care of our special needs pup. Additionally, we've had two emergency visits with them and all of the vets, nurses, and staff exceeded our expectations in how they handled those emergency situations. One occurred very close to the end of their business day and they made sure to get him in to be seen and care for, saving us 8-10 hours of wait time at the nearby emergency facility. Our other emergency situation was rather scary and they tackled it right away with expert care and attention to detail. Our pup healed almost immediately and was back to his chipper, happy, healthy self. We really cannot say enough about Animal Medical Center of Chicago and especially the most amazing Dr. Emily Yacker who brought us into their family. Thanks for all you do for Chicago families and their furry family members!

Amazing service! I am so blown away by how amazing the team here is. Nikki is my hero. My dog Miles was a patient of Dr. England until about 3 years ago when we moved out of state. I am moving again and could not locate Miles microchip number. It was a long shot, but I called to see if Animal Medical Center had it and Nikki answered. She was super friendly, and when they didn’t have the number in the computer, she went through the paper files to find it and texted it to me later! I mean, how amazing is that!?!! Just want to thank you all for everything you did for Miles while we were in Chicago and thanks for continuing to help!!!
