  Our Specialists: 

Dr. Scott Murphy:

We are very proud to have Dr. Murphy on our team at Apple Lake. He is the owner of Twin Cities Veterinary Surgery. He is a specialist in small animal surgery, having achieved board certification from the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 1998. To achieve this level of expertise requires completion of an internship and surgical residency followed by passing a rigorous certification examination.

Dr. Murphy had been working in a specialty surgical practice in Minnesota since 1998 until forming Twin Cities Veterinary Surgery in 2007.   He comes to Apple Lake when we need him for specialty surgeries.  This makes it very convenient for our clients should their pet need a specialist.
