"I consider it a great privilege to work with precious animals because, like Albert Schweitzer, I hold a high reverence for all life. I strive to make a difference in the lives of animals and their human counterparts who come to our office with a need. My goal is to provide comfort, assurance, and healing through sound medical practices, with patients and their families leaving the office feeling better than when they first came in. Touching an animal's life in a positive and loving way is one of the most fulfilling things I can do."
