Has your veterinarian told you that your beloved companion needs surgery? Are you nervous, or do you have questions? Do you know what to do next? I am the compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, board-certified veterinary surgeon who will help guide you through this journey. I will meet with you and your family at your veterinarian's office or at one of several convenient hospital locations to discuss what ails your pet. I will perform a gentle, stress-free examination as I get to know your furry friend and develop a bond. I will review diagnostic tests that have already been performed and will determine how best to obtain any additional information that is needed. I will thoroughly discuss all treatment options, both surgical and non-surgical. I will ensure that you gain a complete understanding of the diagnosis, prognosis, risks, expectations and costs prior to any decisions being made. I will communicate with your veterinarian and together we will formulate a plan for the very best possible outcome. If surgery is elected, I will utilize aggressive pain management therapies to keep your pet comfortable. You can rest assured that your companion will receive the highest quality of care available before, during and after the procedure. I will provide detailed discharge information and will be available to guide you through the recovery process. I will remain involved for as long as your pet needs me and then return primary care to the capable hands of your family veterinarian.
