Profile of Jeffrey Levy, DVM
, a Manhattan-based DVM
and Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, is one of only a handful of veterinarians who makes house calls in New York City.
And, as the lead singer and founder of Pet Rox
, an animalcentric band, he's
also one of the more unusual.
A specialist in canine rehabilitation, Dr. Jeff (as he
likes to be called) offers both conventional and alternative medical treatments, including acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Reiki.
: We've noticed a rising trend in the number of house-call veterinary services available in the United States.
Why did you choose to specialize in this approach rather than a more traditional office setting?
: I am drawn to the special way I can practice my medical craft.
