About Dr. Zuckerman
Dr. Zuckerman recieved his Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013. He then went on to complete two internships: the first was a Small Animal Medicine and Surgery Internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in New Jersey. The second was a Small Animal Surgical Internship at Dallas Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center. After that, Dr. Zuckerman completed a competitive 3-year Small Animal Surgical residency program at the Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center in Pennsylvania. In 2019, Dr. Zuckerman became board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
When he’s not in the operating room, Dr. Zuckerman enjoys playing guitar, fishing, and taking his dog to the beach.
Dr. Zuckerman is no stranger to Cape Cod. He has family here and actually began his veterinary career as a technician in our Dennis hospital!
