Because Dr. Silverman is an independent practitioner, he is able to run his practice without answering to corporate directors, shareholders, or venture capitalists. He takes pride in answering directly to his clients and putting all of his energy into the star of the show: your beloved pet! Plus, he runs a “best practices hospital,” meaning he and his staff provide owners and their pets with comprehensive medical and surgical expertise.
