Dr. Reed completed his residency training in Annapolis, MD with Chesapeake Veterinary Surgical Specialists.
On what he enjoys most about working at WVRC…“What I appreciate most about surgery is the opportunity to directly interact with the anatomy and/or physiology of a patient to help the body heal – I find this to be a rewarding professional challenge.”
