Good ideas arise from a pressing need: one that must be filled. That is precisely how and why Dr. Greg Marsolais created Pet Specialists of Monterey.
In 2007, having already built a successful pet surgical practice in the East Bay, Dr. Marsolais was drawn to the beautiful Central Coast and its white-sand beaches. He started a mobile surgical practice on the Monterey Peninsula. After performing surgery for and with local veterinarians in their clinics, Dr. Marsolais realized the area needed its own emergency and specialty referral hospital. At the time, the closest facility was more than an hour away in Santa Cruz, requiring pets and their owners to travel long distances for more complicated procedures.
In January 2011, Dr. Marsolais found the perfect location for such a facility: in the Stone Creek Shopping Center at the intersection of Canyon Del Rey Boulevard and Highway 68. Within months, he transformed the former Doctors on Duty office into Pet Specialists of Monterey, a spacious, state-of-the art facility. Doors opened in October 2011.
“Pet Specialists of Monterey is the first to offer 24-hour emergency service and a surgical-referral clinic specializing in orthopedic and soft tissue surgery and internal medicine in this area,” explained Dr. Marsolais. As a referral practice, Pet Specialists collaborates with other veterinarians – from San Luis Obispo to Santa Cruz County – to ensure the very best medical care for pets. The emergency facility accepts patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Pet Specialists does not perform general animal care, such as check-ups, dentistry, or vaccines.
