WHAT IS A BOARD-CERTIFIED SURGEON?
The American College of Veterinary Surgery sets and applies standards to obtain board-certification status. ACVS requires years of surgery residency training and successful completion of a multi-faceted examination after completion of veterinary school. There are currently 2,383 board-certified surgeons.
CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT DIRECTLY WITH YOU?
Dr. Munjar works directly with your veterinarian and will consult with your veterinarian to determine if your pet is a good surgical candidate. Please contact your veterinarian directly if you feel that your pet may benefit / require specialty surgery.
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
No. We charge our fees directly to the veterinary clinic. Our fees will be integrated into your final clinic invoice. Please ask your veterinary clinic regarding payment options.
DO YOU TRAVEL TO DIFFERENT ISLANDS?
Yes. We currently service Hawaii island, Maui and Kauai. Once Dr. Munjar and your veterinarian have decided the patient would benefit from surgery, flight arrangements are made. Typically surgery is performed in the morning and the pet goes home the same day.
