Dr. Cerf is passionate about all things veterinary but has a special love for Ultrasonography, Soft-Tissue Surgery, and Geriatric Care. When Dr. Cerf is not taking care of animals, he enjoys spending time with his wife, their son Milo Atticus, their 3 dachshunds, and pretending he’s a pro bass angler.
