Amy Polkes, DVM, DACVIM
Hudson Valley Equine Internal Medicine
Hudson Valley Equine Internal Medicine (HVEIM) is a veterinary practice led by Dr. Amy Polkes, a board-certified specialist in equine internal medicine. Utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and a balance of expertise and experience, HVEIM brings the specialist to the patient.
Consultation and collaboration with a specialist provide the best outcome in complex cases.
Board-certified veterinary specialists are similar to their human medical counterparts in that they have completed an internship and residency in their specialized field (an additional 3-5 years training).
In addition to this extensive training, a board-certified veterinary specialist must pass rigorous examinations to achieve board certification from their certifying organization. Specialists bring a deeper understanding in their specialty field, and have a greater knowledge of unusual or uncommon conditions in large or small animals. In addition, a specialist may have diagnostic equipment not generally used by your veterinarian.
