Meet our Doctors

Tovah Dorsey, DVM


Emergency & Hospitalization

I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD and I am happy to be back in the DMV area after being out of state for both school and training. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, exploring different cultures, trying new food, mentoring aspiring veterinarians, and volunteering in the local community.
