Dr. Bart Iaia is a 1992 graduate of Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. "I have always admired Veterinary Medicine. It truly is a profession that allows one to practice all aspects of medicine." His professional interests include dentistry, nutrition and animal behavior. Dr. Iaia also has interests in complimentary medicine and has completed courses in Lomilomi, an ancient Hawaiian healing art. This healing art can be applied to the veterinary field and many pets enjoy the touch, and relax quickly during the session. He is also certified in Veterinary Acupuncture from the Chi Institute of Reddick, Fl. Acupuncture is a 2000 year old art of healing that involves stimulating certain points within the body to promote healing. It is very effective in treating chronic conditions such as arthritis, IBD and skin disease. Dr. Bart enjoys spending time with his wife Denise, their daughters Brie and Gianna, and of course, the family pets; currently, two dogs, one cat, a few fish, and a guinea pig. Hobbies include gardening, eating (and occasionally cooking) and water skiing."
