Dr. Surell Levine --Owner and Veterinarian
I graduated from Brown University with a Bachelor of Arts in 2001 and University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. After graduation, I completed a fellowship in Emergency and Critical Care and worked at Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital in the Emergency Room and Intensive Care Unit. For the past 5 years I have worked in primary care practice with a focus on preventative medicine and treating acute and chronic conditions. In addition to my day-to-day veterinary practice, I have been an active volunteer surgeon at the MSPCA animal shelter.
My veterinary specialties are emergency medicine, preventative medicine, endocrine diseases and acupuncture. I am a certified veterinary medical acupuncturist. I emphasize preventative care and early disease surveillance in an effort to curtail medical issues before they mature so as to slow disease progression. I believe in educating owners so that, as a team, we can provide the best care for the patient.
I grew up with a variety of small animal pets and farm animals and have always seen the world through the lens of these human-animal relationships. To me, animals help us to love, to care, to give, and to heal. My work as a veterinarian allows me to support the health and happiness of the important bond between human beings and the animals with which we live. A house call service allows me to more effectively service the animals that nurture all of us and allow us to be better people.
When I’m not working, I am busy with my husband Rick, two sons Sam and Abe, and dog and cat, Jane and Ben.
Attached is an interview from Boston Voyager Magazine:
Rick is Dr. Levine's husband and is a registered nurse, but outside of the human hospital, he helps Dr. Levine with all aspects of the business so that she can focus on the medicine. He may even show up to help with an appointment if needed. Rick grew up in Holliston, Mass.
Dr. Shelley Macchi--Veterinarian
I was born and raised in Milford, MA. In 2002, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from University of New Hampshire and then, in 2006, graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Tufts University Veterinary School. After graduate school, I completed an internship focused on emergency medicine at New England Animal Medical Center in Bridgewater, MA. Since then, I have worked for the past 10 years in a busy primary care hospital. My practice has particularly focused on preventative care, treatment/management of chronic diseases in dogs and cats, and client education.
When I am not working to help animals feel their best, I spend most of my time with my husband and 3 daughters. We live in and love Milford, where my husband is a school teacher and my daughters attend the local schools. I am excited to be working in and serving the community I’ve always called home as a house call veterinarian.
