On The Job
Not only does Dr. Christina Boekhout enjoy the problem solving that comes with being a veterinarian, but she also likes hanging out with dogs and cats all day. She was drawn to surgery because in the majority of cases, she is able to offer a solution to the problem or disease process, instead of providing chronic long-term management. Her clinical interests include soft tissue, oncologic, minimally invasive and orthopedic surgeries.
