"Clients first need to know you care, before they care if you know." Since earning my hard fought DVM from the University of Minnesota a dozen years ago, what I’ve found most fascinating about practicing veterinary medicine is how much I care for people. That’s right, I said people! I left a twenty year mechanical engineering career to refocus my tireless problem solving energies on my first love - German Shepherds. Well, as you can imagine, it didn’t take long for all kinds of other canines, as well as those wildly independent felines, to weave their way into my heart and thoughts. With that said, each one of these four-legged animals walks into our clinic with a two-legged one. Establishing and supporting that crucial doctor/client relationship is one of the most important things I do. With the above credo as a foundation, I treat each visit as an opportunity to break down that line that separates client and friend. And where I truly care for each animal placed under my watchful eye (I tend to treat them as my own), I am equally dedicated to solidifying your trust in me.
