Connecticut Veterinarians Disciplined

Connecticut Veterinarians Disciplined

By George Gombossy

Their patients can’t talk, but it doesn’t mean that Connecticut’s 1,345 licensed veterinarians get a free pass when they are negligent.

A review of Connecticut Health Department records by CtPetLovers.com shows that seven veterinarians were disciplined so far this year and in 2011 following complaints – mostly from pet owners.

Also, one Farmington resident, who was caught practicing veterinary medicine illegally was issued a cease and desist order.

Another 30 complaints against veterinarians are now under investigation, according to Health Department spokesman William Gerrish.

While the state Health Department’s website does list the veterinarians who are disciplined, the media normally only covers medical doctors who are disciplined and not veterinarians, who therefor fly under the radar.

You can check to see if your vet has been disciplined by going on line to the following state health department websites:

https://www.elicense.ct.gov/ ; which lists all professionals licensed by the state health department and includes notes on those that have been disciplined.

 http://www.ct.gov/dph/cwp/view.asp?a=3143&q=435274&dphNav_GID=1830 , which lists all veterinarians disciplined between May 2012 and March 2009.

Based on documents obtained from the health department the following veterinarians were disciplined so far this year:

Dr. Teresa Love Willington

Dr. Stacey Kasperzak of Somers

Dr. Steven S. Leshem of West Hartford

Dr. Ronald Maier of Waterbury

The following were disciplined in 2011:

Dr. Jennifer Carolan of Washington Depot

Dr. Ralph Padilla of West Haven

And Dr. Neil Wolff of Greenwich

Also last year, the state Health Department ordered Shachine Belle to stop practicing veterinary medicine as she is unlicensed.

We’re not quite at that http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlinebc.org stage yet. But we may be on the right path. For http://www.coachoutletod.com perhaps the greatest geek triumph of the 2012 presidential http://www.coachfactoryoutletbo.net elections was the unlikely figure of statistician Nate Silver, http://www.coachoutletpn.com whose FiveThirtyEight blog – which algorithmically assessed http://www.coachfactorystoredo.com hundreds of polls based on their historical accuracy – http://www.coachoutletos.org managed to successfully predict the result in 50 out http://www.coachoutletstorefb.com of 50 states.His analysis – like every political story – divides http://www.coachoutletstoreonlinert.com opinion. To my mind, though, his work shines a light on a bigger story about our future relationship http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net with technology, and in particular on a vision of progress http://www.coachoutletonlinelon.com where there’s an increasingly clear divide between those http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com endeavours that can safely be left to humans, and those where http://www.coachoutletdt.net machines and mathematics are preferable.It’s something that http://www.louisvuittonoutletcft.net is already happening.
