'In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing. -Theodore Roosevelt' Dr. Hilferty was born and raised in New Orleans, LA and went to Louisiana State University for his undergraduate and veterinary degree. He then practiced in Texas for 3 years before moving to Michigan to be closer to his wife's family. Dr. Hilferty loves surgery and ultrasound. Surgery is great because it is one of the most tangible ways you can help an animal. Ultrasound is a wonderful non-invasive diagnostic tool that can give us a significant amount of information. He is excited about his families new beginning in Michigan and can't wait to meet you and all of your pets!
