Chicago >Pohl, Holly A, Dvm - Cat Hospital Of Chicago
Thorough, compassionate cat care. I have been very impressed with the quality of service at the Cat Hospital of Chicago. In veterinary care as with anything else, you get what you pay for. The doctors here are very thorough, compassionate and skilled. They are always willing to answer questions and to discuss the pros and cons of various treatments. I live in a southwest suburb of Chicago, but still take my two senior cats to the north side because I trust the Cat Hospital and appreciate the calm, soothing environment they provide for cat care.
Not impressed. Having lived all over the country and watching the growth of cat only care, I quickly became hooked on the cat only environment. There is, however, caution to be made. Thinking that Vets who own or work in cat only clinics are far better trained than the averge vet in a mixed environment is not always the case. I took my cat to this clinic. I was not impressed. It isn't a loving environment. Costs are extremely high. When I researched the background of the vets, there was absolutely nothing in the way of advanced education that could have possibly justified the costs vs. care ratio. I was not impressed with the cleanliness. Compassion was a foreign concept. From the moment I walked in the door, I had a cold feeling. Dr. Cherwonky may have gone to Vet school and passed the State licensing exam but there's just not much else there. Compassion, empathy, demonstrtive love of cats--- all of the things you expect in a Vet seemed to be lost in the cold efficiency of the place.
Great place for cats!. My kitty got sick and I needed help. I made appt online and got a call back that same day. Once there we did not wait at all. We were immediately seen by Dr. Czerwonky. She listened to me and my concerns and answered all of my questions. She not only made my kitty feel better, she also calmed me down. This is a great place for cat owners who want what is best for your precious little babies. It feels great to finally find a vet who listens and is not quick to prescribe in order to get you out of their office.
