Dr. Joseph Friedlander, DVM

Being a veterinarian has been my dream since high school. Upon graduating from veterinary school I worked in a small animal practice in Monmouth County. I joined Adamston Veterinary Clinic in 1992 and became a partner the following year. In 2007 my partners retired and I became sole owner of AVC where I enjoy the daily variety general practice has to offer. My wife, Loreen and I have a daughter and 3 sons. We share our home with our cats and 2 birds.
