He has owned the Hospital since 1996, taking it from a solo practitioner hospital in the house by the road, to a seven vet hospital with pet resort in the big building up on the hill. As a veterinarian he is a general practitioner with special interests in ultrasound, emergency medicine and Pugs.
As a practice owner he enjoys guiding the staff through the growth of the hospital and resort and continues to look for ways to improve the care and services that the hospital provides. He can also be found changing light bulbs, unblocking drains and hanging pictures throughout the building.
Dr. Reynolds graduated for the New York College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989. Following graduation he completed a year internship program at the Oradell Animal Hospital in Oradell, NJ.
