The staff at Dermatology for Animals would like to congratulate Dr. Darren Berger and Dr. Rose Miller on passing the American Academy of Veterinary Dermatology board exam! They both are a valuable part of our team and we could not be more ecstatic!
Dr. Darren Berger and Dr. Rose Miller began their residency with Dermatology for Animals in 2009. After completion of a three year residency and hundreds (maybe thousands) of hours of studying, these doctors have been able to achieve such a feat.
Often, clients ask how a person becomes a Veterinary Dermatologist. Firstly, you need dedication, the care and compassion for the itchy, scratchy animals and a large brain capacity. Secondly, you need a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, which includes eight years of college and a one year residency in general practice. Thirdly, you apply for a very competitive residency in veterinary dermatology. After being accepted into a program, you spend the next three years diligently studying, learning and asking a lot of questions. So after 11 years of college and mentoring, you can understand what an honor it is to work with such amazing, dedicated doctors.
If we had to use one word to describe Dr. Darren Berger it would be gregarious. He is outgoing and always makes an effort to make his clients feel completely informed. He is kind-hearted, sociable and always goes above and beyond the ordinary for every patient.
If we had to use one word to describe Dr. Rose Miller it would be exhilarative. She is full of energy and we can have a hard time keeping up with her. She is amicable, approachable and indisputably cares about her patients well being.
Compliments to our newly board certified Diplomates! Now they have those well earned extra five letters to carry around.
