Dr. Marc Gurtman
In 1991, after a few years of uninspired practice as an attorney, Dr. Gurtman decided that he was tired of working with animals :) and pursued a career in veterinary medicine. A 1998 graduate from Cornell University’s School of Veterinary Medicine, Marc has special interests in surgery and oncology.
Dr. Gurtman enjoys the challenges of difficult cases and is lucky to have friends that are specialists in various veterinary disciplines to call upon when needed.
Marc enjoys guitar, athletics, writing comedy and spending time with his wonderful wife Sonali and children Jason and Lauren
Dr. Sonali Kothari
Dr. Kothari was born and raised in Canton, Ohio. After establishing residency in Virginia while attending the University of Richmond, Dr. Kothari decided to attend veterinary school at Ross University on the beautiful island of St. Kitts. She completed her final year of clinical studies in Louisiana at LSU and graduated Veterinary School in 2004.
Animals respond to Dr. Kothari’s warm and caring demeanor. Perhaps they sense that “she’s not from around here”.
Driven to offer the “best” medicine, Dr. Kothari will leave no stone unturned in diagnosing challenging cases. She has a special expertise in dermatology and has helped many dogs that had been suffering a life of discomfort due to skin ailments.
Sonali enjoys taking long runs, swimming, tennis, traveling and eating! Although she loves all breeds, Dr. Kothari has a special place in her heart for the small flat-faced kind. Look for Kiwi, Ponzu, Miso and Gnocchi as evidence when you come visit our practice.
