I wanted to make sure that I let everyone know just how happy I have been with the care at Park Avenue Animal Hospital. Dr. John and his staff are by far the BEST that we have ever had. I volunteer with Greyhound Rescue and have met and been to numerous vets. I can honestly say that you will never find a more thorough or caring vet around. Thank you to PAAH for all the great care that my 4-leggers have received. :))

Took my mom's dog to this vet for yearly shots and exam, found a coupon on their site for 10% off. As long as you mention the coupon to them, they'll give you the discount. Staff was very pleasant, clean and nice place. It was a bit hard to find at first because the sign wasn't big/clear enough. The doctor (I don't remember his name, slim and tall) was really nice and knowledgeable. They made my dog feel like a rock star! She got full attention at all time, but she will tell you it was a scary experience for her since it was like the first time getting a physical exam, but all the biscuits later eased her fast!! I'd go there again when I'm in the area.

Dr. Rubinstein is by far the best Vet I have ever had. He has a great way of dealing with difficult animals. I was told by an emergency clinic that my little kitten, Jade, needed to be put down. She was only 4 months old and they said she had FIV. Dr. Rubinstein received notice that Jade saw the emergency vet and called me immediately that Sunday night to check on her. He said he wanted to see her first thing Monday morning and we could make a decision on her treatment. She was so little and so innocent that it would have been very hard for me to put her down. After Dr. Rubinstein looked at her he said she was really a fighter and he wanted to do a blood transfusion and a weekly treatment of ImmunoRegulin for a few weeks, which was eventually decreased to every other week, then stopped. He used his office cat Bonnie for the procedure. After a few months passed after stopping treatment, he tested her again and NO FIV!!! She made a full recovery and is now a happy, healthy (well, a little bit “fluffy” around the middle) 7 year old cat. She wouldn’t be alive if it was not for Dr. Rubinstein. He is an amazing vet!

PAAH has given all of my pets the most compasionate and thorough care. I can't say enough about their team of caring techs, receptionists and the clinical excellence of both of their physicians. The also work with a number of rescue organizations helping rescue and re-home dogs and cats to find their forever home. If you love your pets like family, then PAAH will take good care of them. Thank you from all our family.

I am the coordinator for animal supply donations for the Bags of Hope organization. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Park Avenue Animal Hospital for assisting us with the collection of donations of supplies for animals of the homeless. We would also like to thank everyone who made donations. Words cannot express how beneficial your kindness has been to these poor unfortunate pets.

Park Avenue Animal Clinic provides the very best in veterinary services to both the clients and their pets. They understand that our pets are very special members of our families. The staff is caring and compassionate, with an obvious devotion to putting the health of our pets first. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Rubinstein in 2005 when he provided medical services for my Sadie. Because of his support for the protection and welfare of abandoned, feral, and homeless cats, Sadie had a chance to live out her life in a loving home without bringing more unwanted kittens into the world. The first day I met Dr. Rick I was impressed by his kind and compassionate manner. He is not only a highly professional and competent doctor; but he is also a very warm and sweet man. I am so grateful that recently I was able to have another homeless cat “Sam” treated by Dr. Rick. Sam is an old cat that was always roaming the neighborhood begging for food. His mouth was a disaster and he had a large ugly cyst on the side of his neck. He was also wheezing loudly with asthma. He had two bad teeth removed, his gums treated and the cyst removed from his neck. He also received medication for his asthma. Thanks again to Dr. Rick, Sam is now doing great. The kind, caring and friendly demeanor demonstrated by the doctors and the staff of PAAC is to be appreciated by all who visit your clinic. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your kindness will always be remembered.

My family wants to thank the ENTIRE staff at Park Ave Animal Hospital for the love they showed when we recently lost our StewieLu. I could not have asked for a more caring and loving group of individuals who take their job to their hearts. We unexpectedly lost our cat of 11yrs just 2 weeks ago today. When panic overcame rationale in a hectic moment, the staff did the thinking for my 2 daughters and me. We came in with a very sad and crying Stewie who ended up passing away in Dr R's arms. It was like she was waiting to pass in a protective environment. We have used this animal hospital on all of our animals (and we have many) and will continue to do so. In fact, We are in the process of adopting a kitten from Candy's Cats who has been already taken care of by this staff for her shots and spaying! It takes a very special person to care for animals and we are very lucky to have the entire Staff at Park Ave Animal Hospital who do just that, EVERY DAY! Thank you Dr. R, Amber, Jessica, Barbara and all those behind the scenes!! Kindest Regards, The Broadie Family (patients for life!)

Hi Animal Friends, My Name is JP and I have been doing animal rescue volunteer work for about 15 years. I find nothing in life equal to the tender loving face and eyes of a rescued animal. I got to know Dr. Rick at his previous practice in Oviedo -- The 1st day I met Dr. Rick I was taken by his kind and caring "bedside manner" with both animals and their Human companions. He has such a reassuring calmness about him and he has taken such good care of so many of my animals. I seem to take on the older animals with some health issues. Dr. Rick took such good care of LL Bean, my Blue Dobbie Rescue, along with many others. I then met his partner Dr. John and he is a warm, wonderful, calm, gentle man with the animals. Dr. John is the vet I saw when I took Pattycake, my 100 pound American Bull Dog rescue. She had a growth on one eye and heart worms! He had the growth off and her eye stopped all the drainage and he also treated her for her heartworms. Pattycake is doing so well now. I would also like to say a huge "Thank You" to all the warm and wonderful staff. From the moment I walk in the front to the end of my visit everyone is so kind and caring. It takes a very special group of people to do what they do. When I bring all my "animal kids" to them I feel like they are in the best of hands. I am so grateful that our path's crossed---it has been such good fortune for my animals and me. Thank You PAAH for being there. YOU ROCK

Hello, I am a feline rescuer. I have had my share of vet clinics. Myself and others have found Park Ave. clinic's doctors and staff to be the most professional, comforting and most of all "caring places" to go with your animals. I came across an injured dachshund that jumped off a bed and could not walk. An emergency visit with exam, x-rays and medication made Prince's prognosis very bad. Then we went to Park Ave. Animal Clinic and Prince is now doing 99% better and we got him in a new loving home with patient and gentle people. Before we could place Prince we had several visits to Park Ave with Prince. I thought it would be hundreds of dollars and I was under a lot of stress and in tears because he couldn't walk anymore. The bill came to about as much as a grocery bill would be. I was in shock and oh so pleased. Park Ave Vets know that all my animals are rescues and there is NO way I would have gotten Prince in a loving new home if he could not walk. Park Avenue vets and staff are so very kind and caring and I am so very grateful they are there. Whenever I have an urgent or emergency situation they always find a way to get me in ASAP. I am so grateful for the loving, kind and knowledgeable staff.

This is a hard one to write, but thank you to everyone in the office for your concern and care. The first time we brought Freckles in, everyone was attentive and considerate of our situation. The follow-up phone calls from Dr. Turgai himself, and all that he was willing to do to improve and prolong our dogs life: THANK YOU! Later, when there was nothing else we could do, the staff set up a room for us, took their time in talking with us and were so sensitive to what was about to happen. They took our young son out into the other room set him up with cartoons and gave him a stuffed animal. They incouraged us to take our time saying goodbye. Then just yesterday, we received a card that had personal messages written by the staff that was there the day Freckles was put to sleep. Everything they did and continue to do amazes me because they honestly do care about what they are doing. I hope that you all continue in the great work you are doing. Thank you so much.
