As a long-time client of Dr. Rick and team (about 15 years) they have helped me through multiple pet surgeries, injuries, and several sad passings. I can attest to their remarkable caring staff and unwavering desire to keep your pets healthy and happy. I would never go anywhere else.

Amazing doctors who care about your pet more than they care about profit! Affordable and quality care! Everyone has been wonderful, even through the loss of one of my fur babies.

Just love everyone here! They have helped us through the normal visits, and the really rough times. The last time we had to take my large dog in, who is normally very anxious in the car and at the vet, he was very sick. He left healthy and absolutely LOVES coming to Park Avenue now...even better in the car. I don't know what they did, but they are magic at Park Avenue. Full of love.

Dr. Rick is the best. I have been taking my bunnies for over a year now and he is always considerate and kind. Very knowledgeable. Love the staff as they are all very friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend.

Recently moved out of state and the hardest part was leaving the best vet I have ever known. When one of my dogs became suddenly very ill, I took him to a vet I was referred to here in NC. She took X-rays, did blood work, examined my dog and came up with nothing over 36 hours. When she wanted me to drop off my dog all day for an ultrasound, I called my trusted vet, Dr. Rick Rubinstein back in Apopka at Park Avenue Animal Hospital. Talked to him for 5 minutes and he told me what he suspected was wrong and suggested I see a specialist here. He was completely right without the benefit of exam, X-rays and bloodwork. Dr. Rick has that great combination of unparalleled talent and skill, along with the ability to really hear what a pet parent is describing. He saved my dog's life that day, long distance. While I lived in FL, he did knee surgery as well as routine procedures on my animals over many years. There are good vets around, no one gets through vet school without being very smart, but if you want a great vet in whom you can always trust, look no further than Dr. Rick Rubinstein at Park Avenue Animal Hospital. As if that's not enough, he is as compassionate as he is talented!

My cat hadn't eaten in two days and she had a growth in the back of her mouth that I noticed last night. I called this morning and got a same day appointment. The check in was very quick (I'm a new client) and I didn't wait very long at all to be seen. Both the nurse and Dr. Turgai were very caring about my cat and took the time to listen to my concerns. Dr. Turgai recommended a quick same day dental surgery, and his first estimate was too high for me to afford, but we were able to figure out what was strictly necessary for the procedure that I could afford. I will definitely be bringing my cat back, I'm glad I chose this office to call this morning.

We have been going to Park Avenue Animal Hospital for over 2 years, and have seen "Dr. Rick" Rubenstein every time. They were kind and compassionate through a difficult and unexpected loss, and are now caring for our newer fur babies (2 cats). Our visits to Park Avenue Animal Hospital are a positively remarkable experience every time.
