"Compassionate Care With a Personal Touch". This statement speaks volumes about the wonderful people at Forest Hills Veterinary Clinic.

We began to bring our pets to the clinic about 3 years ago. Our dog, Duncan, was in the midst of an allergy crisis. We had had him at another clinic, and he was not getting the care or treatment that he needed. Someone suggested we contact Forest Hills and ask for Dr. Thomas Stasiak, DVM. We must say, it was the best thing ever. For Duncan, and for us. From our first visit we knew that Dr. Stasiak was in this for the long haul. He and the entire staff did everything to help us.

One of the best parts of being a client is that Dr. Stasiak becomes so completely involved in your situation. We always felt that when we were in the office we were his only concern. He answered our questions and always, always, encouraged us to call if we had concerns. We love that the Dr. himself calls to check on things. While we were working through some of the allergy issues, Dr. Stasiak would call just to see how Duncan was doing. Never have we had such a personal interest taken on our behalf.

I'm so appreciative of all of the staff at Forest Hills Veterinary Clinic and especially Dr Knowles. For nearly 20 years we have brought our many pets to you and they have all received the best of care. And though we are currently grieving the loss of our dog Bella, I'm confident there will be a day in the future when we will have another pet and we will most certainly entrust their care to Dr Knowles and the staff at Forest Hills Veterinary Clinic.

We moved to Grand Rapids when our Miniature Schnauzer, Scamp, was 7 years old and Dr. Stasiak became our veterinarian. From our first visit with Dr. Stasiak he made us feel like he loved Scamp too! He saw Scamp through many health issues over the years and every time displayed incredible knowledge and compassion. He consistently followed up after every test result and explained everything to us clearly. Sadly, in his 15th year Scamp received a lymphoma diagnosis and Dr. Stasiak was just as crushed as we were. He put us in touch with a canine oncologist and we decided to go through treatment at that time. Every time Scamp saw the oncologist, Dr. Stasiak contacted us to follow up and cheer us on. When it was clear Scamp's health was failing, Dr. Stasiak gave us excellent advice about how to know it was time to say goodbye and handled the procedure with kindness and empathy. We since moved from the state and are so sad that Dr. Stasiak isn't with us to guide our new dog through his life. Our new veterinarian has GIGANTIC shoes to fill!

  • "​Dr. Mike Knowles and Forest Hills Veterinary Clinic has provided care for our pets for 15 years. I couldn't be more pleased with the care we have received over the years. Dr. Knowles always follows up with a personal phone call after appointments for sick pets and will always return my call when I have a question or concern. The staff is very caring and thoughtful as well.​"

  • "Our 2 dogs have seen Dr. Mike Knowles since we rescued them almost 12 years ago. Their staff have always been courteous and wonderful to deal with. Dr. Knowles goes above and beyond. When our dachshund/terrier mix had a serious back injury he personally called and checked on her progress nearly every day. Our dogs are well taken care of and we have every confidence in their services."
