Frequently asked questions about Dr. Kamal

What is your area of expertise?

Hi! I’m Dr. Mariam Kamal… You can call me Mar : ) I’m a small animal relief veterinarian. I’m experienced in general practice medicine, emergency medicine, and forensic medicine for cats and dogs. You can read about my background here.

Where do you work as a veterinarian?

I work at various practices throughout New York City. After leaving emergency medicine in 2017, I began working in general practice on a per diem basis. I only partner with reputable clinics that offer top quality medical care.

Why aren't your veterinary workplaces listed here?

New York City is a place of great opportunity—and great competition! I do not share exactly where I work because I wouldn’t want a client from one clinic to switch to a different clinic just to stay with me as a doctor. So out of respect, my workplaces are not listed here.

What is your schedule?

My schedule and availability varies a lot. Right now I am available for weeks at a time. My bookings as a vet are for a minimum of two weeks. Each week should include at least four full days. For example, I’m available to cover blocks of time such as maternity leaves, vacations, and time periods between hires.

I'm a pet owner. How can I book an appointment with you?

If we met at your veterinary clinic, great! Call the office and ask for my next scheduled date. Remember that I only work at reputable clinics in New York, so it’s okay if I’m not available—the other doctors are excellent and have access to all my notes and your pet’s test results. Also, don’t wait for my next available date if your pet has an urgent problem.

Will you answer my medical question via email?

Unfortunately, I’m unable to do that. I only want your pet to receive the best of care, and that isn’t possible over email. For general questions on pet health, I’ll soon have a section with helpful hints for both cats and dogs. Always confirm these guidelines with your own veterinarian.

I want you to be my pet's veterinarian, but we've never met.

That’s a tricky one. We have to meet incidentally at one of my regular clinics for me to examine your animal. But don’t worry—New York City is absolutely filled with amazing veterinarians. If I’m not your vet, there are plenty of other phenomenal choices.

I own a veterinary clinic and am interested in learning more about you.

I’m honored! Please feel free to reach out through my contact page and I’ll be in touch soon.
