Looking for a vet?

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 don’t currently work in the clinic much I devote most of my time to my marketing work for Relief Rover.

I have worked at various practices throughout New York City. After leaving emergency medicine in 2017, I began working in general practice on a per diem basis.

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.

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’ve worked because I wouldn’t want a client from one clinic to switch to a different clinic just to try to book an appointment with me. So out of respect, my workplaces are not listed here.

What is your schedule?

My current schedule is mostly devoted to my marketing position with Relief Rover. I’m not working in the clinic much.

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

I’d love to help, but I’m not working many clinic days right now! If you already met me in the clinic, it’s okay if I’m not available—the other doctors have access to all my notes and your pet’s test results.

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

I’d be honored to have a conversation with you. Please feel free to reach out through my contact page and I’ll be in touch soon.
