SAGE neurologist Dr. Christina Vitale is not only board certified in Veterinary Internal Medicine (subspecialty Neurology), but also holds the prestigious Neurosurgery Certificate, a rare credential currently awarded to less than 100 neurosurgeons worldwide. This designation requires both rigorous additional neurosurgical training and vast experience in performing numerous brain and spinal cord surgeries. Dr. Vitale is also a founding member of the Veterinary Neurosurgical Society.
While SAGE is well known for 24/7 "walk-in" emergency care, we are predominantly a team of board-certified veterinary specialists whose patients are referred to us by primary veterinarians for everything from oncology to surgery to neurology and even dentistry. In all cases, SAGE keeps the primary vet informed at all stages of treatment, from initial consult to recheck. This continuity between SAGE specialist and primary veterinarian ensures the best possible outcome for the pet.
This section contains information most relevant to primary veterinarians and their staff. Information most relevant to pet owners will be found HERE.
At SAGE, we speak of a "triad of caregivers," consisting of:
• Referring Veterinarians
• SAGE Specialists
To maintain the triad of care, SAGE will keep you informed of your clients' pet's progress after our initial consultation and subsequent recheck appointments. We believe that this continuity between specialist and primary veterinarian ensures the best possible outcome, which after all, is everyone's goal.
