About your baby's doctor...

"Thank you for trusting me with your pet's veterinary needs. Combining your insight into what makes your pet so special and my expertise in your pet's health needs, we can provide excellent veterinary care for your pet."

Knowledge is Important

"Veterinary school was four years of intense study for myself, and four years of sacrifice for my family. But that's what it took for me to do what I had always wanted to do: practice veterinary medicine."

  • DVM: University of Florida, 1984
  • BS: With Honors, Animal Science, University of Florida

Continuing Education Is Necessary

"Veterinary medicine is an ever-changing profession. I would not want to practice the way we did 15 years ago. That's why I attend seminars and conferences so that your pet will receive the most up-to-date health care available."

Continuing Education:

  • Medical and Surgical
  • Stomach Surgical Procedures
  • Dermatology
  • Chest Disease
  • Soft-Tissue Surgery

Professional Memberships:

Experience is Critical

"Reading about something in a book is a lot different that actually doing the job itself. With over 25 years experience, I have already handled the vast majority of problems your pet will have."
