I would like to introduce myself and the veterinary
rehabilitation and wellness client. My name is Helen
Crabtree DVM and I own and operate the rehabilitation
practice which is located in but NOT affiliated with Barton
Heights Veterinary Hospital.
After serving two years in the Army I was a member of the
National Guard while completing my DVM from Louisiana State
University in 1994. I practiced general medicine in Dickson
City, PA for five years and Emergency medicine in Avoca, PA
for eight years.
In 2007 I left Emergency Medicine to care for a family
member who was having surgery to remove a tumor on her
brain. It was here I witnessed the dramatic positive
results, both physically and psychologically, of physical
therapies importance in her full recovery.
Since then I have committed myself to bringing the same
quality of care to canine rehabilitation in Northeastern
Pennsylvannia. I completed the University of Tennessee's
courses in Canine Rehabilitation and then interned at Red
Bank Rehabilitation Center in New Jersey. I was also
fortunate enough to get individual traininig at VOSM with
Dr. Sherman Canapp and Debbie Gross-Saunders MSPT.
I have lectured about rehabilitation at Valley Central
Veterinary Referral Center and Instructed JTI veterinary
technician class while giving them an hour interactive tour
of a patients rehab session.
Please rest assured your pet will receive personalized care
from initial consult through discharge or follow up care. I
look forward to meeting you and your pet.
