To my treasured clients & beloved patients,

My time at Associates Animal Hospital has come to an end. As of December 31, 2017, I will no longer be practicing here with my colleagues and friends.

Dr. Gillham with dog BennyI have been so happy to have had the privilege of being trusted with the care of your pets over the years. Being their veterinarian has been central to my life and has brought me great joy as well as sharing in times of sadness. Sharing in your lives and treating all the generations of your pets has allowed me a professional life that most would envy. I will miss you all and thank you for trusting the care of your pets to me.

I am leaving you in good hands. Dr. Rosiello, who has been with Associates Animal Hospital since 2003, is now leading the medical team. He is joined by Dr. Badner who started with our practice this year, and who many of you already know. They have great medical expertise and are completely dedicated to the care of your pets and meeting your needs. You are in the best of hands. Allison, Kaitlyn, Mac and the rest of the support team will also continue to ensure that you and my patients will always receive the very best of care.

So, while I am saddened about leaving Associates Animal Hospital, I am excited about my future. My first grandchild is due in February and life continues to bring me lots of opportunities. I am also making time for some hobbies and adventures, including dressage riding and training for the five Borough bike ride in New York.

I want to thank you again for the privilege you have granted me by trusting me with the care of your pets. I know that they will continue to receive the same loving care after I leave.


Susan Board Gillham, DVM
