Welcome to Compass Veterinary Neurology & Imaging!
We are a full-service neurology, neurosurgery, and advanced imaging practice located in the Chesapeake Veterinary Referral Center (CVRC) in Annapolis, Maryland. This practice has been providing care to patients in the mid-Atlantic and the greater Washington DC area since 2009. In 2022, the practice came under new ownership and was renamed Compass Veterinary Neurology & Imaging (CVNI).
CVNI is the trusted team for all neurology and imaging needs both internally from other specialty practices within CVRC, and from outside referrals such as your primary care veterinarian. We are unique in that a board-certified neurologist is on site every weekday as well as available for emergency consults every weekend and holiday. Emergency and after-hour consultations are performed through our onsite 24 hour ER, Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic (AAVEC). Additionally, we are proud to offer out-patient MRI and CT imaging for patients of our referring veterinarians and local specialists.
We take great pride in our track record for the consistent high level of care we provide for your pet. As a part of that, there are many staff members that interact with your pet while they are in our care. From diagnostics to cuddles, your pet will always be in great hands!
Dr. Archambault and Dr. Harvey are our full-time neurologists that will determine a main plan for your pet. Once they perform a complete neurologic evaluation, they will determine the next steps that would be best for your pet and your family. Both Dr. Archambault and Dr. Harvey are board-certified specialists in veterinary neurology and neurosurgery.
Our patient care coordinators are an important part of our team and likely the first point of contact for most of our clients. They are the liaison for our client-doctor interactions and facilitate initial and follow-up patient care in a multitude of ways.
Our veterinary technicians and assistants ensure that your pet is comfortable while they are in our care. Our technicians work closely with the neurologists on your pets during the entirety of their stay, from appointment to discharge. Technicians and assistants ensure safe anesthesia for various procedures, perform blood draws and other requested diagnostics, provide patient care, and a variety of other duties.
Once it is determined that your pet needs an MRI or CT, this is where our imaging doctors come into play. They make an anesthesia plan that is most appropriate to your pet's specific needs and ensure that the anesthesia runs smoothly. Our MRI and CT are integral to our practice.
Our imaging technologists make sure that the MRI and CT are run appropriately, and that we are able to obtain high-quality images so that a diagnosis can be established.
Finally, rehabilitation plays a large part in our patient care. Many of our patients receive rehab while they are hospitalized to help improve their comfort and their recovery. CVNI is fortunate to have our own certified canine rehab practitioner working with our patients. Out-patient rehabilitation therapy appointments are also available.
