Our doors opened for the first time in 1992 as Dr. Brian Ghere and Dr. Nancy Nathan realized their long-time dream to open their very own hospital to provide the best possible healthcare to the feline and canine residents of New Orleans. Their constant values of kindness, gentleness, and humaneness have always guided our hospital. Since opening a quarter-century ago, we have been lucky enough to grow our practice to include three additional excellent doctors: Rachelle Biondolillo, Jennifer Foster, and Dr. Ghere’s daughter, Taylor Ghere.
All of our doctors and staff view our work as a calling. We take pride in our work every day and we are thankful to be able to provide assistance to and show compassion for all of our pets and our clients. Our team is always eager to learn and keep up-to-date with all the latest technologies and advancements of veterinary medicine. This allows us to offer state-of-the-art veterinary care best tailored to each individual pet. We are more than just a hospital, however, and our mission is to offer loving medical care and provide necessary assistance to all of the animals we treat, and to develop bonds with our community at large. We are a stalwart of the Uptown New Orleans family and we are proud of our neighborhood. We are committed to our city; we were one of the first businesses to reopen after Hurricane Katrina when some of our own staff didn’t even have a place to live.
We understand that you have a choice of veterinary hospitals so please give us a call or stop by in person to say hello! We know that our empathy, understanding, and love for our work gives us the edge over our competition. We hope to get to know you and your pet soon and we would love to welcome you into the Prytania Vet Family! We see emergencies and work-in appointments during our regular business hours, but we encourage you to schedule an appointment for any non-urgent matters. We are here for you, your pet, your family, and our hometown.
We understand that you have a choice in veterinary hospitals, and we would like to encourage you to take a moment to call us today with any questions that you may have about our doctors or services. Although we do see walk-ins and emergencies, we encourage you to make an appointment for any non-urgent issues including annual visits and vaccinations and non-emergency health concerns. It is our pleasure to care for all aspects of your pets’ health and well-being.
