Dr. Yvette Berndt MS, DVM
Director of Emergency Services
Dr. Morissette went through his childhood wanting to be a scientist of many kinds, so becoming a veterinarian combined his scientific curiosity and his love for animals. As a 1998 graduate of the University of Montreal School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Morissette has enjoyed working with all animals, great and small.
Following graduation, he left Montreal for the beaches and the sun, spending eight years in the Virginia Beach / Norfolk / Chesapeake area practicing small animal general medicine and providing emergency services. During that time, he discovered how further study in pathology improved his clinical skills and understanding of disease processes. He was then inspired to pursue a residency in clinical pathology at the University of Florida, He completed his residency and the pathology board exam in 2009.
Dr. Morissette is now happy to call Colorado home, and takes advantage of the numerous outdoor activities the state of Colorado has to offer. He has found the perfect balance between providing Veterinary Emergency Services at RVVS and offering Veterinary Clinical Pathology services and consultations to the specialists at RVVS. Through numerous continuing education events and case consultations, he truly hopes to share his passion for veterinary clinical pathology and medical insight with owners and the veterinary community.
