Mill Veterinary Hospital
remains one of the very few veterinary hospitals in Northern
Virginia that is not corporate and is owned independently by its
founder. Being independent means that we are not influenced
by corporate programs or policies which prioritize profitability
over individual patient medicine and client relationships. A
strong doctor-client/patient relationship provides continuity in
care. This means a more cost-effective investment in compassionate
and dedicated healthcare.
Mill Veterinary Hospital provides
current medical and surgical protocols to companion animals of
clients it has educated to take an active role in their dog's
or cats healthcare program. The Hospital relies upon developing
a highly personal relationship with each client/patient, and discusses
healthcare choices for the benefit of the client/patient to insure
informed healthcare decisions may be made.
Hospital chooses to limit itself to only professional services.
Therefore, the Hospital does not provide boarding, grooming, training,
or retail novelties which it believes are much better supplied
by other organizations devoted solely to those services. Further, the Hospital adheres to a policy of neither promoting nor endorsing any non-professional services or products.
Hospitals services are philosophically founded upon preventative
intervention through client education and initiatives. The Hospital
believes that prevention is proactive medicine and results in
the most responsible, cost-effective healthcare program available.
The Hospital is staffed and capable of addressing basic as well
as complex cases. Referrals to specialists are made as medically
necessary with Hospital veterinarians participating to assure
continuity in healthcare. The Hospital believes in the importance
of a strong client/doctor relationship and attempts to maintain
a schedule to aid in enabling a clients attending veterinarian
to customarily be available for normal appointments.
