Falls Road Veterinary Hospital

When her beagle, Sadie Mae, inexplicably became sick recently,JoAnn Nemeroff took her to Falls Road Veterinary Hospital in Potomac. There, veterinarian William AmorosoIII quickly diagnosed a form of blood toxicity and started treatment for the life-threatening condition, reassuring Nemeroff that her pet was in good hands.

“He handled the dog with tender, loving care—but he handled me with care, as well,” says Nemeroff, a Potomac resident. “He’s a great doctor, full of warmth and compassion.”

That compassionate care—as well as leading-edge veterinary practices—prompted Bethesda Magazine readers to name Falls Road Veterinary Hospital the “Best Veterinarian” for the second time (it previously won in 2011).

“If your pet doesn’t mind coming to the vet,” says Amoroso, who opened the hospital in 1988, “then there’s something being done right.”
