Kathleen Amato likes the intensity of helping to treat a critical patient in the emergency room, and she always finds a positive outcome to be particularly satisfying. Away from the hospital, she enjoys long walks with her family and dogs.
Brittany Betancourt likes the challenge of emergency and critical care medicine and particularly enjoys internal medicine, toxicity and gastrointestinal surgery cases, as well as caring for critical postoperative patients. Her favorite pastimes include Crossfit, reading and shopping. Polly and Barney are her two pit bulls.
After spending many years in the specialty of cardiology, Carol Fitzpatrick moved over to the ophthalmology team to help with a staffing shortage, and she’s been there ever since. She finds it rewarding to help pets see again and enjoys educating owners on eye disease. Her favorite pastime is birding, which she does almost every weekend. Maizie is her dog, and Lily and Ivy are her two cats.
In her chosen field, Bridget MacDonald’ favorite cases to treat are those that require intensive care nursing of the respiratory system: upper airway obstructions, noncardiogenic pulmonary edema, thoracic trauma, acute respiratory distress system (ARDS) and systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). With a husband, three children and two cats, her home is filled with energy. Passionate about yoga, somehow she finds time as a certified instructor, to teach classes.
