Established in March 1989 by Jan Suchanek, DVM, Midtown Animal Hospital is located at 356 E 33rd St. in the heard of Midtown Manhattan in Murray Hill.
Dr. Jan is known for treating your animals as if they were his own-with loving care and compassion. Midtown Animal Hospital specializes in companion animal medicine, surgery, boarding, dentistry, nutritional counseling, and international health certificates.
February is pet dental month--Imagine what your teeth would look like if you didn't clean them everyday or visit the dentist. Without dental care, bacteria in the mouth can enter the blood stream, travel to major organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys and even the brain. Damage to these organs caused by infection can seriously compromise the health of your pet and shorten its life. To help promote dental care, all dentistry patients will receive 15% off all dental procedures.
I have been very pleased with Dr. Dan. Several times, my Pomeranian has had some serious ailments, and Dr. Dan immediately diagnosed the problems and prescribed the appropriate medications. Each time, he was right on and my dog responded extremely well.
I also find him to be as conservative & cost efficient as he is able to be, as vet services can get pretty costly. He always tries his best to keep the costs at a minimum....before having to move to the next step in treatment.
I am grateful for his expertise as a great vet!
This vet will nickel and dime you. He still does annual distemper vaccines even though it's proven to last 3 years and nearly every other vet in the city only does it every 3 years. He also still vaccinates annually for Corona even though its a dated vaccine with no proven benefits.
He has the charisma of a hyena and the empathy of a wasp. I felt rushed and scammed. He kept insisting to biopsy an obvious fatty tumor. My other vet looked at a sample of it on a slide and said it would be a waste of money to send it to the lab. He had no problem insisting it was absolutely necessary.
Good Vet – I took my sick kitty to Dr. Suchanek for two months, and he was kind, honest and tried very hard to help her.
Unfortunately, she was too sick and did not respond to treatment. I had to put her to sleep last week, but the experience was as peaceful as it could be. I really appreciated the kindly written note from the receptionist as I left, and I appreciate all the help and advice I received from the vet.
Very Happy so is my cat Milo. – Very caring. Dr. Suchanek is awesome and I see he has a words of experience. I can ask all the questions I want, does not rush me. I would not let anyone else take care of my cat. Thank you Dr. Suchanek.
YOU CAN EAT OFF THE FLOORS – Dr. Jan is very compassionate which, coupled with the wisdom accumulated over the years makes him very easy to deal with. I find his prices comparable to other vets in good neighbourhoods. His office is spotless and the surgical/recovery areas you don't normally see were so clean! He never recommends procedures my pets don't need. One drawback - he rec. Hill's Science Diet RX. I simply refused to buy it.
I know that people with complaints are more likely to leave reviews then people who are satisfied with their experience.
So I want to add my positive review of Midtown Animal Hospital and of Dr. Suchanek.
I have been bringing my pets here for 14 years. I have always found the staff considerate, friendly and helpful.
As far as Dr. Suchanek, I have always found him extremely caring and concerned about my animals.
He has always been up front and honest with me about costs and procedures. In addition, when I recently had to put my cat to sleep, he was
extremely compassionate and really helped make a difficult time bearable.
He is the best vet I’ve ever dealt with. When I got married my husband dropped his vet and started using
Dr. Suchanek as well because he was so impressed with the treatment.
Pet care is expensive. If you have an issue with the cost, you probably shouldn’t have a pet.
Lab tests cost money, x-ray machines cost money, the food and medicine cost money, the staff needs to get paid.
I would also like to mention the time I saw a this beautiful cat in the back room, it turns out the owners brought it in months earlier and never came back for it,
Leaving Dr. Suchanek to assume responsibility for it. I can’t imagine the stories he must have of thoughtless owners refusing to pay for the care their pets receive.
Dr. Suchanek is running a business, he has bills to pay and like all of us, he has to make a living. His prices are fair and reasonable.
If you don’t think so... Bring your pet to the Animal Medical Center on 62 St. and see what your bill is like.
He is a great doctor. I won’t go any place else.
Excelent Veterinary clinic – Midtown Animal Hospital is, and has been, the place where all my pet companions have received excellent medical care. Dr. Suchanek helped me to keep my cats and dogs healthy. He never pressed for unnecessary procedures but advised me if he thought the pets could benefit from something more than the basic care. The decision was always left to me and I never felt pressed to consent to treatments that we thought would have been superfluous. Everybody in the clinic treats the pets with kindness and consideration.
The prices are moderate when compared to other similar establishments in Manhattan. People sometimes forget that we are in one of the most expensive avenues in the world.
Dr. Suchanek and his staff offer a good service and the program of the clinic makes it easy to take your pets there.
Great vet--takes excellent care of my dog – I have been bringing my pets, Baxter and Brittany, here since i moved to NYC and my experience has always been great. Of course, usually when im bringing one of them to the vet, it is b/c they are sick, which is always somewhat unpleasant, but i trust this vet completely with my animals. He is very calm and kind with them, which means the world to me. Im not sure why there are so many bad reviews on here--people need to understand that pets and vets are expensive, especially in NYC. Even in Pennsylvania, I never walked out of the vet for under $200, but I actually have here! I highly recommend bringing your animals here.
Go elsewhere if you can – My main problem is that when our dog needed to be put to sleep, he hurt her accidentally, but it was avoidable if he had sedated her first. Also, he did not let us hold her through the procedure, but insisted one of his assistants hold her, while we watched. Otherwise, this vet is very clean, and is convenient for those living at the NYU Med Center and nearby. I have to agree with other reviewers that he is concerned with his bottom line. Personally I've never dealt with a rude staff member, but the doctor himself could have a better bedside manner. He has given me discounted visits for a recurring problem, but only after I paid full price for a vet visit and some arguably unnecessary tests previously.
ok – Very expensive. Front desk girls are rude and dumb. Be prepared to ask questions because they wont tell you anything. Pros: clean, wait time is short. Cons: Front desk girls are idiots vet is evasive. Very expensive. Front desk girls are rude and dumb. Be prepared to ask questions because they wont tell you anything.
