Darlene Fletcher, DVM — Chief of Staff
Dr. Fletcher, our Chief of Staff, grew up in East Paterson and New Milford, NJ, and lives in Bloomfield, NJ today. She received her undergraduate degree from Cook College at Rutgers University, and her veterinary degree from Ross University. Her husband was a US Air Force Officer, so over the years they have lived in many exciting places, including Martha's Vineyard, Arizona, Florida and the Caribbean island of Dominica. But she missed New Jersey so much she had to come back home.
Before joining the Montvale Animal Hospital team in 2016, Dr. Fletcher worked at Newton Veterinary Hospital as an emergency veterinarian, and most recently as Chief of Staff at the Hawthorne Animal Hospital. Her special interests include animal behavior and training, pain management and hospice care, and endocrine diseases.
Dr. Jorge Pang, DVM
Dr. Pang graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelors in Animal Science in 2011. He then attended Ross University, performed his clinical year at Louisiana State University and graduated with Honors in January 2015 with a doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. He worked for Banfield Pet Hospital before joining Montvale Animal Hospital in January 2017.
His professional interest is to provide high quality medicine to all of his patients. He is specifically passionate about heartworm prevention as his dog was diagnosed with Heartworm Disease at the time of adoption. Knowing first-hand how tough it was to get through that, Dr. Pang feels dedication, compassion and communication with clients are a cornerstone of veterinary medicine and his medical interests are in the field of cardiology and surgery.
Dr. Pang currently lives in Rahway, NJ with his two paralyzed French Bulldogs and his girlfriend. Outside of work, Dr. Pang loves to spend time with his dogs. They are like his children! Along with caring for his special needs pets, his other hobbies include hockey, football, scuba diving, and exploring the culinary world.
