    Brian commenced at Brighton Veterinary Hospital in 2008 and thoroughly enjoys working with the clients of the clinic, the terrific team and most importantly treating the pets.

    Brian has developed a strong interest in surgery and performs a range of orthopaedic surgeries.  Brian enjoys managing both medical and surgical complex cases and finding a solution.
