CVRC was voted 2015 "Top Dog" #1 Specialty Veterinary Practice by the Portland community through Spot Magazine's Best in the Biz directory.

"Our focus is to provide outstanding veterinary surgical and medical care to the Northwest community with respect, compassion, and integrity."

CVRC is a state of the art referral only veterinary practice that features surgery and internal medicine services, as well as advanced diagnostic capability through an on-site CT scanner and digital radiography system. Additionally, the radiologists of VDIC, part of Idexx Telemedicine, are available on-site to provide independent ultrasound services and on the spot interpretations of CVRC imaging studies.

Our surgical service features three highly experienced surgeons: Dr. Richard Howard DVM, MS, our founder, Dr. Michael Flynn DVM, DACVS, and Dr. Timothy McCarthy DVM, PhD, DACVS. Through their combined expertise, CVRC is able to provide a comprehensive range of orthopedic, soft tissue, and minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Internal Medicine services are also available with our capable and compassionate internist, Dr. Regina Tobin DVM, DACVIM (Internal Medicine). Dr. Tobin provides assessment, diagnosis and management of patients with complex medical conditions, both acute and chronic.

Dr. Donovan left CVRC February 19th, 2016 to return to the Seattle area; she has been a great part of our team and we wish her all the best. We look forward to continuing to care for your internal medicine patients with the same high level of CVRC service.
