I've been taking my babies to Forest West for almost ten years, even though from Montrose it is quite a drive to get to Pinemont & Antoine. But I could never bring my four-legged children anywhere else. Dr. Griggs is a compassionate, very talented surgeon.
Brought a pup I rescued off the streets. Service was great. Dr. Griggs was kind, compassionate and showed how much she cares for animals, whether they are yours or a rescue. She gave a thorough overview of the dog's health, gave practical suggestions and fair quotes for the treatments or services. They also respect the client by encouraging but not pushing services. Great place, will need to being my pets here as well!
I had Patches the cat for 21 great years thanks mostly to Dr.Griggs. She and her team at Forest West Animal Clinic gave him outstanding care. He had multiple problems in his later years, starting with heart trouble. Whatever the problem, Dr. Griggs would work some magic and Patches would be full of life and raring to go again. All the people at Forest West who handled and cared for Patches always took good care of him just like he was their buddy cat. I can never thank everyone at Forest West enough. They are the best, I highly recommend them for care of your pets. If I adopt another cat or cats, never have just one when they are young, they will be going to Forest West for all their medical needs.
We saw Dr Griggs for our regular heart worm checkup-she was wonderful. You can't tell how wonderful they are just by looking at this place. It is in a very divey looking shopping center-Oak Forest. The vet's clinic just reads Animal Clinic on the sign and is in the same shopping center as subway and a few other hodgepodge stores. Definitely a don't judge a book by it's cover sort of thing. Everyone was friendly and the vet was really lovely. The price of the heart worm medicine was much cheaper than other places, too.
Dr. Griggs and her team are truly amazing! I've used them for all my vet needs for nine years now. Not only does Dr. Griggs genuinely care for my pets but she is beyond great with my children. My oldest son is eight years old and is autistic. She is always more than eager to answer all of his questions and there are a lot! She even lets him listen to all of our pets heart beats. Dr. Griggs takes the time to make him feel special, which means a lot to him and means the world to me! She is an excellent veterinarian and an even more compassionate and loving human being!
This place is the best ever. We have been going there for many years and couldn't possibley get better care for our dogs than we get here. It is not located in the best area but if you want the best, venture on over. Dr. Griggs is as good as it gets. Caring, compassionate. Great service from everyone there.
Very reasonable and very friendly. Its a small location which is great if you like a more personal experience versus feeling like a number. Its very convenient if you're in the neighborhood. Dr. Tinkey is very thorough and informative. I've taken all my animals here for spay/neuter, check ups, and vaccines.
We have been taking our pets to Dr Griggs since about 1998. They always know our names and our pet's names, but the best part is the excellent vet & staff, that our pets like too. That is critical for us, not do they recognize me. My family has always had pets. I'm 67 and have seen many vets in many cities. I feel that Dr Griggs & staff are top notch. Not all are. Watch how your pet behaves around your Vets office. If they are scared, bring them here. I wish I had more stars to give.
