I originally had a 5 star review based on my initial visit but have changed it. While the initial visit was great, the service went down hill from there. The main reason I changed my review though is because of the last visit. I brought my dog in for an emergency visit as I noticed her eye was very red. (she had a cataract already and we had surgery scheduled in about a month). They took my dog away and did "tests" and said she was fine. One month later when we actually went to do the surgery at Cornell hospital, she had glaucoma and they could no longer operate on the the eye. The doctor told me that given the size of the eye, the pressure had been building up for some time. I don't know how they could have missed that. Perhaps my dog did not have pressure build up when I brought her in but I could not in all good conscious recommend the hospital for eye care.

In 1971 I had a mixed breed dog named Zulu. He got hit by a car. He was in very bad shape. NYC Housing Police rushed us to AMC. At first the doctors recommended euthanasia. But decided to give him a chance. Zule was 19 months old then and lived to be a healthy 17 years old that died in his sleep. In 1980 my Godson had a 4 year old Poodle named Gray. Gray was attacked and mauled by a German Shepherd. Gray was is such horrifying condition that he wouldn't even let my Godson touch him. I pulled up and whistled and Gray limped into the back seat of my patrol car. I took him lights and sirens to Animal Medical Center. After surgery Gray was admitted for over a month. We were allowed to visit him. Gray lived to age 21. He died sleeping in the window seel on a cool summer night. Pets are members pf our (your) family. They just as humans deserve the best, including medical care. I have known people who have airlifted their pets to AMC (it's not far from the East 50th Street helioport. AMC is at.East 63 Street between York Avenue and the FDR Drive. Not to far from NY Presbyterian, Hospital of Special Surgery, NY Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Institute, The Rockefeller Institute and St. Luke's Hospital. A very prestigious medical community. I am now living in Puerto Rico, but my dog's TOBY a Lab Shepherd Mix adopted) primary care veterinarian is at AMC. I fly into Teterboro Airport and helicopter into Manhattan where a Sprinter Van is waiting to take us to AMC. That's only for his routine check ups. I recommend NY Animal Hospital for anyone with a pet. The hospital is huge and has many disciplines for an class of animal, fin, reptile or bird.

My dog received major spinal surgery at the animal medical center and I am so pleased with their care. I highly recommend this hospital to anyone. Everyone that works here is extremely kind and caring. My dog is now walking again thanks to the high quality care at the animal medical center.

I couldn't be happier with the care my cat received from Dr. Riback. The doctor took his time explaining the procedure my cat would be undergoing as well as what else he would be looking out for. He was very patient answering my questions, and urged me to contact him via email if I had additional questions. When the surgery was over, Dr. Riback called me to let me know that my cat was recovering well, explaining what was done, and what possible dental issues my cat might experience in the future.

Five years ago I brought my then 13 1/2 year-old shih tzu, Samantha, to The AMC for surgery to remove what turned out to be a benign tumor on her liver. A little more than five days ago, I brought my 18 1/2 year-old Samantha to The AMC to put her down. And during the five years in between, I brought my beloved Samantha to The AMC countless times, for her 6-month check-ups to monitor her Cushings disease and overall health; for treatment of an ear infection, a urinary tract infection, and a skin infection; for eye exams as her eyes reddened and lost their sight; for acupuncture to treat her growing lethargy as she aged (ok, that didn't help her all that much); and, most recently, to be fitted for a wheel-chair to help with balance and ambulatory problems. For five years, The AMC has been amazing in providing Samantha with the best medical care and me with the support and encouragement I needed to take care of my aging little girl. And even in my worst moment a little more than five days ago, The AMC was there to help me through. I am bereft at the loss of my precious doggie, but I am still comforted by the care of The AMC. I cannot recommend the caring staff and top-notch facility enough. Thank you, AMC.

Simply put AMC saved Napoleon's life. The staff from the reception team to the doctors themselves were incredible, compassionate and highly skilled. Impressively AMC is dedicated to training the next generation of vets also and I am sure these young dedicated professionals will go on to save many loved animal friends.

All the vets from AMC are very kind, responsible, very knowledgeable. If you love your pet, AMC is the best place to trust. If I know earlier about AMC, my 18 years and 8 months old Clarisal wouldn't suffer like she is now. Other vets I have visited for all these years, they just take money and they don't even bother taking your call or email response. AML vets are 24 hours a day responding my email and give me all suggestion. It's worth to pay. They are like family, and very kind to Clarisal. I know this is ending for her, but they try their best for Clarisal. Thank you Dr. Dennis Slade ( Internal Medicine Specialist ) Dr. Abigail Thomson ( Internal Medicine ), Dr. Alison.Tarbell ( Cardiologist ) and Dr. Christina Romero for all your kindness.
