    Owner / Veterinarian

    What do all these places have in common, Whiting, Africa, Galapagos Islands, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Canada, Belize, Virgin Islands, and Wisconsin? Answer - They are all places Dr. Schorr has worked with animals!
    Dr. Schorr had worked as a relief veterinarian at Whiting Veterinary Clinic for several years before she purchased the clinic in 2007. Dr. Schorr graduated from University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School in 1993. Prior to attending Veterinary School she received a Bachelor's degree in in biology and a Masters degree in Wildlife Disease and Parasitology.
    Although she spent a lot of time in school she found time to be a part of some interesting projects. Dr. Schorr spent a summer in Kenya, East Africa helping with a project to study rhinos. Another summer was spent in the Galapagos Islands helping with research on giant tortoises, and then trapping wild cats in Belize. She worked for the Canadian Wildlife Service trapping and banding ducks, helped collect wild pigs on Ossabow Island, and studied sea birds on an uninhabited island in the Caribbean. Dr. Schorr has always had a love and strong interest in animals of all kinds. She has now devoted herself to caring for your pets.
    Dr. Schorr lives with her husband Don who can frequently be found at the clinic helping out, Bambi, her rescued shelti, who is often behind the front desk begging for treats, and a crazy little cat named kisses, rescued from the Crestwood Community Gardens.

  • Gary Levy, DVM, DABVP, CVA, FAAVA


    Dr. Levy was born and raised in New Jersey. He graduated from the University of Delaware in 1976 with a BS degree with High Honors. Dr. Levy received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1981. Dr. Levy has been in private veterinary practice since that time, opening his clinic in Jackson, NJ in 1989. Dr. Levy sold his conventional veterinary practice in June 2014 to begin his house call veterinary acupuncture practice.

    In 1993, Dr. Levy completed the requirements (a minimum of five years of clinical veterinary practice, 150 hours of Veterinary Continuing Education, author of two peer reviewed clinical case reports, and passing an extensive two day written and practical examination) and became a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Board of Veterinary Practitioners (DABVP)- specializing in canine and feline practice. The ABVP requires members to repeat this process every 10 years. Dr. Levy was recertified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (DABVP) in 2003 and in 2013.

    Dr. Levy received his initial veterinary acupuncture training in 1994 from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS). This extensive continuing education course consisted of a 150 hours of lectures over a four month period. After completing the course, passing the written and practical exams, submission of two clinical acupuncture case reports and 40 hours of internship Dr. Levy was recognized as an IVAS Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (CVA) in 1995. He then became a teaching assistant for the IVAS Basic training course in 1995 and 1996. Dr. Levy served as a member of the IVAS course exam committee for two years. In 1998 and 1999 he attended the IVAS Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Herbal seminar series.

    In 1998, Dr. Levy was one of the nine founding members of the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture (AAVA). The mission statement of the academy is to promote the art and science of Veterinary Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, to further the professional development of its members, to encourage the education of veterinarians in Veterinary Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and to provide leadership and resources in the United States for the advancement of these disciplines.

    Dr. Levy has been involved in many aspects of the AAVA including: chair of multiple committees; co-editor of the AAVA newsletter, the Meridian; and annual meeting committee program chair for eight years. He has been a member of the AAVA board of directors for eight years including two terms as President (2000-2001, 2006-2007).

    Dr. Levy was the chair of the initial AAVA advanced certification committee as well as the primary author of the Guidelines for AAVA advanced certification in veterinary acupuncture. In 2007, after many years of work with Dr. Levy as committee chair, the first advanced veterinary acupuncture examination was given to qualified applicants and resulted in awarding of the first Fellows of Veterinary Acupuncture (FAAVA). The following year Dr. Levy resigned from the advanced certification committee and began the peer reviewed application process and completion of the advanced veterinary acupuncture exam. He became only the fifth academy member to have completed the academy's advanced certification program and be recognized as a Fellow of the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture (FAAVA). This honor requires an individual to practice a minimum of five years of clinical veterinary acupuncture, completion of 50 hours veterinary acupuncture continuing education, submission and acceptance of two clinical acupunctures cases suitable for publication, and successful completion of a comprehensive written exam.

    On March 3, 2012, at the annual AAVA meeting in Charleston, South Carolina the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture (AAVA) presented to Dr. Levy the AAVA Lifetime Achievement Award for his dedicated and outstanding service in the field of veterinary acupuncture. This award was established by the AAVA Board of Directors to recognize and honor an individual for years of work in promoting veterinary acupuncture.
