Re:  Retirement

It is with mixed feelings that I announce my retirement.  It has been my privilege and honor to work with each of you during the nearly 40 years of my veterinary career.  Further specialty care of your pets and patients should continue as before at Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital (MVH) through the Internal Medicine Service, and/or the Emergency Service as needs arise.  Other pertinent specialty services, such as Surgery, Oncology, Cardiology, Ophthalmology, and Radioactive Iodine facilities are also available through MVH.  In addition to the MVH facility in Copley, Ohio, a second location in Highland Heights, Ohio, is expected to open in the near future.  Your pets and patients will continue to be in very good hands.

Many good wishes are extended to all of you for the months and years to come.  I am most grateful to have worked together.  Thank you for entrusting us with the well-being of your pets and patients.  I will miss you.
