What's the difference between a board-certified specialist and a family veterinarian?

A board-certified specialist has completed rigorous training comprising four years of undergraduate school, four years of veterinary school, a one-year internship, and a two- to three-year residency in a chosen specialty. Then, the doctor must publish original research and sit for a national exam, known as "boards." Upon successfully passing the exam, the specialist receives the highly distinguished Diplomate status, signifying their expertise in a chosen specialty.

Our specialists are commitment to providing high-quality medicine in a caring and compassionate environment.
