Dr. Goldstein will be finishing her one year avian and exotic animal internship with us next week. We will really miss her exuberant personality and positive attitude! Before she leaves, she wanted to share the following: So long until we meet again, AEAC! It has been an exciting and stimulating intern year. I learned so much from all of the doctors and staff and I can’t wait to take my skills to Pittsburgh. With the support of everyone at the clinic, I have improved my surgical technique and developed the ability to clinically evaluate patients, recommend and perform diagnostic tests and manage multiple cases at our busy exotics practice. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the clientele at AEAC. We have such devoted owners that are invested in their pets’ care, which allowed me to grow as a doctor and perform high quality medicine. Before starting this internship, I had never asked a bird to step-up or syringe fed a rabbit. With our patient and kind staff, the guidance of Dr. Lennox and Dr. Lee, and our caring owners, I gained invaluable experience in working with exotics that I will utilize for the rest of my career. I could not be more grateful to have met and worked with all of you and I will miss you all very much. Enjoy the summer and give Dr. Swisher, the new exotic mammal resident, a warm welcome to the team in July!
