  • Thank you for being able to see Blizzard quickly due to his cough. Everyone is always so nice when we come in.

    I have been taking my dogs to Dr. Hicks for probably 20 years or more. I truly believe that they all lived to a healthy old age because of the care and professionalism of Dr. Hicks and his wonderful staff. I am so grateful to everyone at AMVH! They are the most caring, professional staff. The facility is first class. I can leave my dog there, in their care, and enjoy my vacation with no concerns about Oliver's welfare.

    I have been taking my dogs to Dr. Hicks for 20 years. He and his staff are not only excellent at what they do, they are also very compassionate, understanding, friendly, and helpful. The only thing that would make them any better is if they were free, but you can't ask that of them, now can we? :)

    Steve and staff, I wanted to thank you all for taking such good care of our kittens CeCi' and Chianti. They both had their front declaw done and we picked them up this morning. They are so happy to be home with us. I felt very comfortable leaving CeCi' and Chianti in your care. I was really grateful to not have to worry about them while they were away. I can certainly tell that they were taken care of and I again say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you too Dr. Steve!

    My family has been with you for over 20 years. All of our pets have been taken care of with love and we know that when we leave them they are taken care of as we do. The staff is very loving and our trust in the doctor could not be any higher.

  • We were first sent to Dr. Hicks over 10 years ago when our first little one came home at 6 weeks old from the pet store. Staying with Akron Medina Veterinary Hospital has been the very best pet care decision we have made for both our pets and our family. We have always counted on the kindness and professionalism of the staff and of Dr. Hicks himself. My pet children are my life and there is no place better that I can entrust with their well-being. In Medina it has since grown into a state of the art fully equipped location but have always kept the kindhearted staff that I totally trust with my children. There is no place better to take your family.

    I love Dr. Hicks and the caring staff at AMPH & R. The care I have received her since moving to Ohio in 2000 has been fabulous. Would definitely recommend your services!

    Your staff always makes me feel like my cat, Bing, is a celebrity. It's a comforting feeling to know that my precious little kitty is taken care of by such caring and thoughtful people.
    Frank Pace
    Cat Owner
    I am so grateful that Dr. Hicks took the issues with my cat seriously unlike the two other veterinarian hospitals I took him to before. He was able to completely resolve his issue, explained exactly what the problems were, even showing them on the x-rays to me. This came as a great relief to me after a week and a half of wondering if my cat had something seriously wrong with him that neither of the other two vets cared to find. I will absolutely be making Akron Medina Veterinarian Hospital my permanent vet. The office staff was supportive and wonderful as well.

  • We have been loyal customers of Dr. Hicks for 12+ years now. Dr. Hicks and his entire staff have been nothing but wonderful and helped our dog Shelby live a happy 14 years despite multiple allergy issues and other health problems. We drove from Hartville to Medina for every visit and every time we needed dog food because it was worth it to know Shelby was in good hands! [When] we had to make the tough decision to put her down, Dr. Hicks and his staff were overly supportive and understanding and made an awful time as peaceful for us and for Shelby as possible. Thanks for everything you've done for us and for Shelby!

    Thank you to everyone in the pet resort and hospital for the wonderful care you gave our little man Buttons when he was in your care. It was such a comfort to know he was well taken care of when we had to leave him.

  • I don t usually write reviews but my experience with this hospital needs to be heard. I kept my dog at this kennel while I was away on a work function. They gave me a tour of the housing units and where they go for walks. Everything was super clean, but I would expect that. What I didn't expect was for this staff to wait almost a 1/2 hour after closing for me to pick up my dog. An accident on 271 caused me to be late picking him up. I called inquiring about the next day's hours so I could pick him up tomorrow. The young lady at the desk offered to stay late and wait for me. These are the kinds of things that will keep me coming back and telling everyone I know to use them. There aren’t too many people out there that will go out of their way to help a stranger, and I appreciated her staying.

    I met Dr. Hicks in 1997. He got my attention right away when he, without personal injury, gave my cat a pill. I’ve since come to know him as a man of integrity, compassion and knowledge. A veterinarian who continually studies what’s new in his field, he’s able to provide the best possible treatment for his 4-footed patients. His specialties are many. I was glad one of those specialties is in dealing with the health problems of large dogs, since within the next year; I became the proud father of two rescued Huskies.

    Dazzle had been thrown from a car at five weeks old. Her elbow was broken at the growth plate and there was some speculation whether she would need surgery to implant a steel plate. Dr. Hicks managed to avoid surgery and at 11 years old, she still has full use of her arm. His wizardry was also tested when my “son” had really bad breath. The Doc found an abscess tooth. He was able to save Talen’s tooth by giving him a “filling” of sorts that’s held up for several years.

    No review would be complete without mentioning the fantastic Pet Resort. The “kids” don’t eve look back at me when the staff leads them back to their "suite." There’s even an extra special, private wing for cats only. Maybe, one of these days Dr. Hicks will let me come for a play day. I give Dr. Hicks and staff five stars all the way!

  • Dr. Hicks has been our Vet for about fourteen years. I’m continually amazed at how comfortable and relaxed our pups are with him, particularly in the case of our 110-pound German Shepherd. She’d had a horrible experience as a puppy and wouldn’t let other Vets even get close to her. She needed to be muzzled and held down. I was at my wits end. Then, we discovered Dr. Hicks. Almost immediately, Lyra fell in love! She got all excited when I said we were going to the doctor! He treats his patients as if they were his own pets. Additionally, senior care requires specialized knowledge. I truly believe that the expertise Dr. Hicks has in this area, prolonged Lyra’s long and healthy life of thirteen years.

    Neither Dr. Hicks, nor his staff at Akron-Medina Veterinary Hospital cut any corners. I know that when I entrust the lives of our Huskies to them, procedures will be done correctly, safely and with the most up to date, sterile equipment and techniques. Also, I don’t have to worry about our pets being subjected to any unnecessary procedures.

    Our dogs also love to “go on vacation” at the Pet Resort. They’re so pampered by the staff that they’re worn out by the time they come home to the real world. Plus, Sue gives them the best hairdos ever—no small feat for a Husky! They don’t mind having manicures either, since they’ve never been cut. Before the Pet Resort opened, and Dazzle was a puppy, she was groomed by someone else who cut practically her entire due claw off. The entire staff has such great empathy for animals; it’s easy to see why our babies love going to visit! I couldn’t give a higher recommendation!

    I highly recommend Akron Medina Veterinary Hospital & Pet Resort and will always refer them to others. They are extremely professional, knowledgeable, caring, and friendly, and have a genuine love for not only the pets, but also for the owners. Pet care and owner satisfaction is a very high priority of Dr. Steven R. Hicks and his exceptional staff. Medical attention, grooming, day care, and boarding are outstanding! I have been a client there for over 10 years, and I would not consider going to another veterinary office.
