  • Dr. Singer, I want to thank you and Val for all you did for my cat, Klodi. You were so thorough and professional, and helped sooth my anxiety by explaining procedures and potential outcomes.

  • Dr. Singer and Valerie have taken excellent surgical care of several of my patients at Ina Road Animal Hospital. Their care is thorough, including being available for follow up questions or concerns. It's so wonderful to have them be a part of our team even if it's for only a few hours at a time Thanks!

  • "A huge THANK YOU to the veterinarians and techs of the day and night shift teams at Southern Arizona Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center and Dr Michael Singer DVM and Valerie Young of Catalina Veterinary Specialists for bringing our girl back to us! She went in for a routine spay and ended up at the emergency center fighting for her life. If not for these dedicated and talented people, she would not be with us.

  • My dog Tank tore his cruciate just before Christmas. Our vet, Ina Road Animal Hospital, diagnosed his condition and recommended surgery with Dr. Singer. Dr. Singer was able to quickly make an appointment to see Tank and we had surgery scheduled within a few days of his accident. Because Dr. Singer is able to do surgery at my veterinarian, I knew Tank would be in good hands. I got a call after surgery letting me know everything went well. Tank spent the night with Technicians he already knew. Ver

  • Dr. Singer is fantastic to work with. He's collaborative and open to thinking outside the box to get the best for his patients. Dr. Singer is that rare surgeon who is skilled with the scalpel and great with his clients. I really enjoy working with him!

  • Dr Singer is a spectacular Veterinary Surgeon. He is extremely thorough and knowledgeable. He takes the time to discuss all options and really listens. He is the best! His tech Valerie is so helpful and knowledgeable and perhaps the best measure of his mobile surgical practice is that she has worked for him for many years and she has the greatest level of respect for him. I highly recommend when being offered surgery for your pet from a veterinary practice that you do review all options because depending on the type of procedure the services of a specially trained Veterinary Surgeon can make all the difference. If you look on his website you can see all of the Vets that he consults with and operates for them on some of their cases. Pick one of those. I’m thrilled that in so doing I found Briarcrest Veterinary Care Center to be my primary care Vet.

  • Excellent surgeon. Very honest, I totally trust him. My dog was three legged and Dr. Singer performed a miracle. His assistant ,Valerie, is awesome. She called me several times to check up on my dog and was very helpful and attentive. I can’t say enough nice things about both of them. So happy to have found such a wonderful and competent vet here in Tucson.

  • We were devastated when we were told Sammy, our 13 y/o Yorkie Poo had liver cancer. Dr. Hurtado our primary vet reassured us that Dr. Singer was the best. Sammy had surgery and Dr. Singer removed a large intact tumor from Sammy's liver. Within four days our 4-legged baby is almost back to normal. Thanks for a job well done.

  • Dr. Singer and his assistant Valerie are so caring and concerned. The knee surgery he performed on my basset hound Bertha took perfectly, but when I returned for a follow up and she was having another issue with her tail Dr. Singer took time to really look her over, listen to my concerns and offer treatment. This was by far above and beyond. Dr. Singer is also very relatable and speaks in a manner that does not have all the jargon. I could not be happier with his approach.
