As an Elite Fear Free Certified veterinarian that practices ‘lifestyle Medicine’ as opposed to ‘cookie cutter’ style we recognize that not every patient needs everything and not every patient needs the same. General practice has become the fast paced race against the clock today. Many owners would benefit from extra time for ‘question answer time’. Being under the pressure of general practice; patients and owners are underserved....this was a pivoting point. I realized I walked into this life of treating animals and educating their human counterparts to better their lives and improve their quality of it together. I was not able to achieve this in a general " Western" medicine setting. My appointments are based on my patients needs and how we can achieve them together as a whole; owner, patient and doctor together. Having a strong healthcare team with an owner that is educated about their pets specific situation by involving that owner will benefit not only the patient but the bond between them.
