In Memoriam: Mark A. Bronstein, VMD:
Dr. Bronstein owned Ivens Veterinary Hospital for nearly 30 years prior to his untimely death in the fall of 2007.
He was a true Dr. Doolittle, who kept chickens, birds, ducks, goats, a tortoise, an emu, and many dogs and cats as pets. His birds, tortoise, waterfowl, and goats still live here at Ivens-Bronstein Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Bronstein is survived by his wife Nina, daughters Sarah and Becky; a son, Nathan; and a brother.
The staff and clients of Ivens-Bronstein Veterinary Hospital mourn the loss of our mentor, colleague, and friend while we strive to honor his memory by continuing to provide high-quality veterinary medical care to our community's pets. We miss you, Mark.
