★★★★★ I have been with a Mill Creek animal hospital and Dr. Whittle for over 30 years. The facility is updated and very cleanly with numerous healthy food purchase items for most pets. The staff from top to bottom is amazing and always services our our beloved pets needs regardless if we are in office, at home, or on the road. It Gives us great confidence to know our issues can be handled with one phone call, going on their website, or simply making an appointment. Our pets records for everything are always available at your fingertips. The website itself is very user friendly, and useful. Besides all the great attributes of Mill Creek animal Hospital. The best one is Dr. Whittle himself. Dr. Whittle as always been able to diagnose anything that had ever been wrong with our pets. He also has a wealth of knowledge & referrals if your pet needs to see a specialist. The doctor himself as a veterinarian is very personable. He has great “ bedside “ manor. He has always remembered or learned our pets names. He always tries to make our pets as comfortable as possible because he understands they can have anxiety in an environment that they don’t have to often visit other than normal check ups. That is because he has helped us keep them in. Great health. It is important that Our pets are comfortable with Dr. Whittle. All of our pets like him even the one puppy that would not go by anyone they don’t know. In the ultimate situation when our pets have lived a wonderful life, he has helped us and our pets move on from this horribly stressful type of situation. Ultimately, HE IS THE BEST.Larry P.Larry P. ★★★★★ Well, here I am again, this time regarding Bear's sister Bella. Yet AGAIN the wonderful physicians and staff took the utmost care of her. Surgery this time needed for Bella. Dr. Carlson performed the surgery and stayed after hours to supervise her post-surgical until she was ready to come home that night. Dr. Conrad handled her post-surgical observation the next day. Both kept me apprised every step of the way. I also heard through the grapevine that Dr. Carlson called on her day off to check on Bella. There is nothing more you can ask of this group. You are all the best and know how much I trust and love you ALL!!!I cannot thank you enough for your excellent veterinary skills and TLC you have shown our cats for the past 20 years! What you did for Bear, AGAIN was over and above what anyone could ask for. This is the SECOND time he needed emergency surgery and Dr. Whittle came in on his day off. Again, Dr. Whittle and this time, Dr. Conrad were just so amazing I cannot say enough about them! Thank you for caring so much & for taking the utmost care of my fur baby.sharon M.sharon M. ★★★★★ My appointment with my puppy Bailey (Cavalier) went well and everyone at Mill Creek Animal Clinic was extremely professional.

My faithful little friend Bella passed on September 29, 2023 and I am devastated, but the staff was so wonderful to such a fearful little cat AND to me, since I was a mess. Dr. Francis explained everything and took such care with Bella, and although I am lost without the companion I’d had for 16 years, the doctors and staff were the only ones who not only cared about my kitty, but understood what it is like to lose them. Thank you all for the wonderful, healthy years that you helped to give Bella, and the compassionate care you gave her at the end of her life.Debbie K.Debbie K. ★★★★★ Everyone was very nice thereMargaret W.Margaret W. ★★★★★ Great doctors and staffPat F.Pat F. ★★★★★ I've been taking my dog to Mill Creek Animal Clinic for a few years now and everyone there is very pleasant and professional.

Drs.Conrad, Francis and Whittle take great care of our cats even when the cats are difficult. Love all the staff at Mill Creek.LSB BLSB B ★★★★★ Shout out to Dr Carlson & staff at Mill Creek Animal Clinic for going above & beyond to make sure that Bear had a stress-free annual exam. Bear is pretty big, & these two ladies fed him treats & conducted the entire exam, blood draw, inoculation administration & nail trim, while talking gently with him and sitting on the floor with him to keep him calm. Needless to say, they must have been exhausted afterwards. We cannot thank them enough for spending so much time with him, just so he did not get too stressed out. Mill Creek Animal Clinic in Palos Park, IL is the BEST!Kathi L.Kathi L. ★★★★★ I literally can not say enough good things about this office. They have several different vets, and all of them are AMAZING. I did a review on the old vet's office that got a 1 star (we need a zero option Google). It's a little bit of a ride from my house but worth it 100%. We had to put my daushund down a year ago, and their staff was absolutely awesome. They were compassionate and truly cared as my daughters and I were a MESS. They could not have been more sympathetic. When it was time for our new family member, I called to schedule an appointment before i even told my parents. If you own a pet, this should be your vet's office, period.chad B.chad B. ★★★★★ Love them! Their care & compassion is supreme!!Lisa S.Lisa S. ★★★★★ The entire Mill Creek team is great!Linka G.Linka G. ★★★★★ Dr. Whittle is compassionate and committed to the fur babies he treats. He is a superb diagnostician. I highly recommend this practice.Kay L.Kay L. ★★★★★ The staff and doctor Conrad are amazing.Always so friendly,helpful and so fast to answer questionsThey care about your pets as if they were their own.Ann W.Ann W. ★★★★★ I love this clinic! They are wonderful with my cat who is nearly 16 years old and has been a very frightened and stressed kitty for several years. The staff is always accommodating and thoughtful, especially when I need to schedule appointments. Since my kitty is especially fearful of dogs in general, I am usually able to schedule checkups when there are no or very few other dogs nearby. Many thanks and much appreciation from myself and "Bella"!Debbie K.Debbie K. ★★★★★ Mill Creek is the vet clinic we selected to try out after moving to Palos Park. Our experiences with our dogs have been nothing but wonderful. The staff has always been lovely, kind, and definitely show they care about your fur babies. Since establishing care with them, we’ve had to visit more often than other pet owners due to ongoing allergies, etc. Unfortunately, February through beginning of April has been a horrible couple months for us as we lost both our hounds within a short period of time. From the urgent vet trips, to the final vet trips where we had to say goodbye , we were given so much support and love by the staff from phone calls during after hours by the vets, to fitting us in at random and inconvenient times, to condolence cards and words of comfort when we had to say our goodbyes for each dog. I cannot thank Dr. Carlson enough for her big heart through the hardest times of my life. She showed my babies compassion and gave her entire expertise to care for them until there was nothing left. I would trust her with any of my fur babies over again. She went through it all with us and provided a shoulder to cry on when I couldn’t take the pressure myself. Thank you Mill Creek for your love and support, and thank you Dr Carlson for everything.Julie B.Julie B. ★★★★★ Dr. Whittle has been a trusted veterinarian for our family for over 30 years. He has helped our beloved pets live long happy lives. He and his staff always do whatever is needed! I wouldn’t trust anywhere else! I intend to be a client for many years to come…our newest pup is 7 months!M T.M T. ★★★★★ Great place. They really care about your pets. Drs Francis and Carlson are wonderful.

My doggie looks beautiful.Mike A.Mike A. ★★★★★ I recently changed to Mill Creek from Midwest Animal Clinic, I could not have made a better choice at a more crucial time in my precious dog, Bentleys life. I lost him unexpectedly and too soon but they could not have made me feel more comfortable during my time of sadness and mourning. I was allowed remain with him in the clinic until the end and stay until I was ready to leave. I can not recommend this clinic highly enough. All pet lovers should take their beloved pets to this Clinic.sharon S.sharon S. ★★★★★ Dr. Whittle and the staff at Mill Creek are the best!

We had a great experience and my dog loved everyone there. Definitely will be coming back and so happy I switched vets!Taylor G.Taylor G. ★★★★★ Having adopted my kitties from a shelter there were some health concerns that were evident right off the bat. I am a relatively new pet owner and getting my girls to their healthiest was my main priority. I tried another vet initially and although the experience was not terrible; the service, level of care, and communication is unmatched at Mill Creek.I have the peace of mind knowing my kitties are being treated well and although I know they don't enjoy it much, I am happy knowing that they are in good health and the doctors and staff treating them share the same sentiment. I would definitely recommend Mill Creek!Michelle O.Michelle O. ★★★★★ I am new to this area and had a hard time finding a vet to take my sick Havanese.

Very happy with everyone at this facility and love our new vet!Amanda T.Amanda T. ★★★★★ Dr Whittle and the staff are Great!Glenn M.Glenn M. ★★★★★ My & my new dog's 1st visit & I'm very happy with the resultsSharon C.Sharon C. ★★★★★ I made the decision to switch vets due to a variety of reasons.1) the previous clinic did not offer appointments 2) the wait time could be in excess of 2hours 3) My pet was never with the same veterinarian 4) my pet was always shaking and stressed during her visits.I am so glad we made the switch. Dr. Carlson was so understanding and made my dog feel at ease. I have never seen her so calm at a vet before. A few days later Dr. Carlson called with my dogs test results then a secondary call to ensure I didn’t have questions.This facility and staff far exceeded my expectations. If you are considering making the switch do it.Kelly H.Kelly H. ★★★★★ Doctor and assistants were very friendly and explained everything in great detail.
