Dr. Giniaro Ortiz
Dr. Giniaro Ortiz was born and raised in a small town in Puerto Rico. Growing up with a definitive parallel passion for animals and sports, he attended Veterinary School in St. Kitts (Caribbean) and Virginia Tech as well as a continuous involvement in competitive cycling. After he graduated from Veterinary School, he gained an immediate interest in pursuing small animal medicine with a keen desire to improve the pet-family bond through medicine. He has been practicing as a veterinarian for over 12 years and feels that every day is a new day when it comes to the challenges that we face with a single goal of providing cure and comfort for our furry four-legged family members. He enjoys many areas of veterinary medicine such as diagnostics, nutrition, cardiology, dermatology, behavior among others. One of the most rewarding aspects of gaining experience is to be able to pass on the knowledge to the younger upcoming generation of technicians, veterinarians and other clinic staff to better our profession and team as a whole. During his free time he is always looking forward to spending time with his wife, daughter, his “Rottie” and other family as well as traveling. He still trains for bike races and participates in gatherings with the local cycling clubs for group rides around Williamsburg and nearby cities.
