Vader is Dr. Bailey’s personal family pet and rides to work and home with him each day. He is a registered emotional support dog.

Vader is a sheepadoodle and is hypo-allergenic.

He has a calming influence on our patients and enjoys receiving extra love from their families.

Not a dog person? No problem! Just let a member of our staff know and we will ensure Vader takes a break in a separate room.

Otherwise, be ready for him to lay on your lap while he waits for you to scratch behind his ears.

Follow Vader on Instagram at @orthovader to see how his work day is going.
