    Former Riverview Park Worker Builds Miniature Working Model Of 'The Chutes'
    ROSCOE VILLAGE - Once upon a time, the magical kingdom of Riverview enchanted all who passed through its gates. Fifty years after it was razed, the defunct North Side amusement park, which sprawled across nearly 75 acres off Western Avenue, continues to cast a spell over Chicagoans of a certain age, who speak of Riverview with a fondness that borders on reverence.

Beware Dr. Seth Ghantous - Monsters At Chicago Emergency Veterinary-Specialty

I am begging you. Please do not EVER take your pet to Chicago Veterinary Emergency & Specialty 3123 N. Clybourn. They are truly the definition of monsters. 

  • Penelope C Activist of all kinds.

    I actually think it's great. Sounds like they tried to post feedback/ review via Yelp and couldn't so they used their own site. Resourceful. Good for them.

  • Seth Ghantous saved my dog's life. Yes, like most EMERGENCY DOCS, he is a no BS guy and is very direct. I am sorry that you lost your pet and that is heartbreaking. However, I will be forever grateful to Dr. Ghantous. Vets, like everyone else, are under significant stress....

    Seth Ghantous saved my dog's life. Yes, like most EMERGENCY DOCS, he is a no BS guy and is very direct. I am sorry that you lost your pet and that is heartbreaking. However, I will be forever grateful to Dr. Ghantous. Vets, like everyone else, are under significant stress. They cannot rely on their "patients" telling them what the problem is. They have to make snap decisions. In many cases, they are smarter than "people doctors." If Seth was short with you, you must ask yourself what rose might be on his mind......perhaps his adorable daughter that has had medical issues far beyond what anyone could ever imagine. Seth is #1 in my book. He is a caring and loving father, husband and an outstanding veterinarian. Just my 2-cents.
