Our cancellation and fail to attend policy

We have been experiencing a large increase in clients failing to attend appointments over recent months. Each fail to attend means there is another patient who could have been seen sooner who needed our help. We have had to implement a cancellation and fail to attend policy. This means that you need to contact us before we close the day preceding your appointment if you wish to reschedule. Any failures to attend will incur certain fees. Thank you for your understanding.

Graduated: 2011 in Romania
Joined the team: 2019

From a young age I had an interest in animal care. Having helped my grandmother in the country, I would accompany the village vet and assist him with her neighbouring animals. After leaving school, and through my studies, I was able to help out in a centre for street dogs. During this time I experienced handling and helping fearful dogs. I moved to the UK in 2019 and joined Companion Care Vets Portsmouth. More recently my wife has joined our sister surgery Companion Care Vets Fareham Park Gate.

Outside of work I enjoy cooking. My mother is a professional cook and loved to share her knowledge with me. In addition, my uncle is an aircraft mechanic, this triggered my curiosity and now I like to tinker with things. Whilst I was studying veterinary medicine I spent a year as a shopping centre clown so I often bring balloon animals into the practice for the staff; my daughter loves them too.
