Dr. Nick Archambault, DACVIM
Dr. Archambault originally hails from Rhode Island, having earned his BS from the University of Rhode Island. He then moved to Michigan and completed his doctorate (DVM) from Michigan State University. Dr. Archambault then entered a 1-year small animal rotating internship at Texas A&M University. He then continued his tour of the country by moving to Missouri for a 3-year residency in neurology and neurosurgery at the University of Missouri. He achieved his board certification in the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) Neurology subsection in 2015 upon completion of his residency.
Dr. Archambault and his wife then moved to Naples, Florida for his first position as a boarded veterinary neurologist and neurosurgeon. He quickly learned two important things: 1) Having other veterinary specialists immediately available makes a big difference for the quality of medicine performed, and 2) His New-England roots can’t handle the constant Florida summer! Dr. Archambault moved to Maryland in 2018 and has been practicing as a neurologist at the CVRC-Annapolis location since this time. Dr. Archambault earned his ACVIM neurosurgical certificate of training in 2016.
He has co-authored peer-reviewed studies and helped pioneer an image guided neurosurgical technique for application of the vertebral column in dogs (vertebral stereotaxy) during his residency. Dr. Archambault stays active in the veterinary community both locally and nationally, serving on multiple ACVIM committees as well as holding officer positions in the local Veterinary Medical Association. His areas of clinical interest include advanced neurosurgical procedures (craniotomy, spinal stabilization, neuro-oncologic surgery) and advanced imaging (MRI, CT) novel techniques. Dr. Archambault finds teaching truly rewarding and enjoys taking part in the training of veterinary student externs and in-house interns at CVRC in Annapolis. Dr A and his wife share a full house of 3 teenage cats, 3 dogs (golden retriever, cavalier king Charles spaniel, German Shepherd), and a young (human) son.
