I have been taking my Congo African Grey Parrot to Dr. Gold since I returned to Maryland. As Bird Owners, most of us know how challenging it can be to find an Avian Vet, much less one you trust and like. I drive over 1 hour to take my Bird to Dr. Gold because he is THAT GOOD. I love how he always seems to be on the cutting edge of Avian Medicine, yet he is not one of those “Vets” who would rather spend your visit time guilting you into unnecessary tests, procedures or vaccinations.
When Dr. Gold inquired about the sex of my parrot, I truly had no idea , having been accustomed to only having a Parrot Sexed when one intended to breed them. This procedure was also prohibitively expensive previously. Dr. Gold took the time ( without pressuring me ) to explain why knowing the sex of your parrot really assists vets in diagnostic procedures and that if it made sense ( it did. I practice medicine as well ), that the cost was minimal and the procedure effortless. Not many Avian Vets would have taken the time to explain to me why this procedure made perfect sense!
I’d probably drive 3 hours to see Dr, Gold! My experience with this practice has been nothing short of exceptional!
