I have known Dr. Phil for 20 years and have always taken my animals to him as he has provided wonderful care and advice. He is concerned for a bird's physical and mental health, and has shown me how to provide an enriching home environment, good diet and taught me how to clip a parrot's wings. I have moved to another part of Melbourne but still take the long drive to see him and his friendly clinic

You are wonderful People Dr Phil, Jacinta and other team members! You all have such passion for your work I cannot thank you enough for helping my cockatiel Sunny with the injury to her crushed leg. I would never hesitate to recommend any feathered babies to be trusted in your care. Also my alexandrine 'Romano' was seen by Dr Phil and he was most impressed with my bird's health. The importance I place in feeding him a balance of vegetables, fruit, pellets and some seeds has well and truly paid off. Also the use of gum tree branches for them to perch on is much better than the bought rods. They are kept busy chewing them and great for their feet and assorted Australian gum nuts of all shapes and sizes to keep his beak in top shape. Thank you, thank you, thank you Melbourne bird clinic !!

In the past 18 months I have taken 3 of my much loved birds to see Dr.Phil. Each one had different issues, the most recent being life threatening. I am happy to say that with his professional opinion, recommended treatment and great advice on birdie-housekeeping, all my feathered friends are well & enjoying life. I am so glad to have found an avian vet who genuinely cares and shows much concern, kindness & generousity. All the staff at the clinic are to be commended as well. I do highly recommend Dr.Phil, and he will definitely be my birds' lifelong friend, despite the 1 and 1/2 hour drive. 🙂

We were referred to Dr. Phil by our local vet when our cockatiel Pablo fell ill. I have no doubt that the reason he is still with us is because of the specialised treatment and care he received. He was extremely unwell, and Dr. Phil and the clinic staff went above and beyond in diagnosing and treating him. I will never take Pablo anywhere else. Thoroughly recommended!
