Ronald Sher, D.V.M., M.Sc.
Dr. Sher founded Brook Meadow Veterinary Hospital in 1980. He was fortunate to grow up in a family of veterinarians, living in and exploring many different countries, each with unique cultures, languages, and animals. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley (B.A) and went on to the University of London (M.Sc., Neurophysiology), Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (Microsurgery), University of the Philippines (D.V.M.), Universitat Zurich (Veterinary Medicine) and Lunds University Sweden (Social Medicine). His 30+ years of practicing veterinary medicine have been enriched by participating in disaster, emergency and community veterinary medical work in remote areas around the world. These experiences have taught him that all life is precious and has motivated him to use his knowledge to provide always the best medical care he can.
Dr. Sher believes that veterinary medicine is much more than getting the correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment. While he prides himself on having followed the rapid evolution of veterinary medicine and kept abreast of the changes in our approach to veterinary care, namely considering evidence-based medicine as the bed rock of good medical care, he recognizes that good medicine needs to be combined with the realities, complexities, and uncertainties of veterinary practice and should be used in conjunction with a veterinarian's experience and the needs of the family and pet. This approach, he believes, can truly form the basis for the best medical experience. For this reason, Dr. Sher has early on embraced a desire to be sensitive to each of his patient's needs and each owner's desire for care.
Outside Brook Meadow, Dr. Sher has raised two wonderful children with his wife Barbara. His activities include photography, playing the piano, and following college football (mainly the Florida Gators). You might see him in the early morning walking and exploring with his dogs, Tessie and Josie, along the various paths of the Monmouth County Park System.
