The Veterinarians (DVM) at Ann Arbor Animal Hospital are not only passionate about delivering the highest level of patient care possible, but also act as mentors and coaches to our support staff and patients alike. It is our mission to foster a learning environment as part of our commitment to excellence in veterinary medicine.
The DVMs at Ann Arbor Animal Hospital are detail-oriented, accurate and work together as a team to ensure that patient care is kept as the highest priority. Our vets participate regular meetings with their colleagues and staff each week, to set protocols and policies for care, to discuss case studies and diagnostic procedures, to diagnose medical or surgical conditions and present treatment alternatives to clients while being sensitive to their emotional needs and financial status.
Clear, Concise, Warm & Empathetic
Our vets possess great communications skills. They are good listeners with a positive, compassionate, professional manner, providing an atmosphere of efficiency in patient care. We foster a client-centered environment in our practice, we believe in going the extra mile for our patients.
The Ann Arbor Animal Hospital’s commitment to excellence requires that our vets participate in at least 10 hours of continuous education outside of the hospital with the goal of improving skills and staying current on the forefront of the veterinary profession. As part of the continuing education, each DVM shares this knowledge with the staff to improve and update the entire hospital’s level of patient care. Our focus on continuous education promotes our ability to develop new programs and procedures that are designed to meet client needs based on changing medical developments and advances in veterinary care.
Commitment to our community
As animal lovers, our vets are familiar with obedience techniques and behavior issues so they can provide pertinent, useful information on pet socialization and training. Our vets also are dedicated to participating in the community—including pet emergency teams, 4H Fair, wildlife rescue organizations and animal adoptions.
