James began his professional career by serving in the United States Navy as an aviator. Upon completion of his military obligation he returned to college to earn his Master’s degree in Health Care Administration, and after a brief stint working in the human health care field, he found his way to Animal Medical Center in Manhattan. Thus began what has now been close to thirty years of happily fulfilling a wide variety of management roles in the veterinary field, playing an integral part in helping pets, and their human caregivers, in whatever way he can. When not staying busy at work James enjoys traveling, hiking, watching movies and sports and cooking.
Dr. Danielle joined the City Pets team in March of 2004. Prior to becoming a dog and cat house-call practitioner she practiced medicine and surgery for four years at a busy animal hospital on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and spent two years at an emergency veterinary practice on Staten Island.

Doctor Amy has cared, with affection, intelligence and skill, for my beloved feline companions for over 35 years! She visited our Leo for his annual check-up last week (yes, he is in wonderful shape); I always enjoy these visits; and she cares for my grown-up daughter's Romi as well. Doctor Amy and her staff are always responsive, dedicated to the health and happiness of our pets; I am very appreciative of all that CityPets does for our family, feline and human.
