Ohad Barnea, D.V.M. graduated from Tufts University with an academically rigorous Thesis Degree. He completed his thesis on diabetes at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, MA and was a co author on a paper later published in the journal "Diabetes".

Dr. Barnea has applied the knowledge he acquired through his extensive research in his practice of veterinary medicine to his canine and feline patients. He especially enjoys and excels in difficult cases involving dermatology and internal medicine.

Dr. Barnea, who has practiced veterinary medicine since 1992, is currently associated with the American Veterinary Medical Association, the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association and the Northern New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association. He keeps current by attending at least two cutting edge continuing education seminars a year.
