Belle Mead Animal Hospital Staff Profiles

Joseph Martins, D.V.M.

Veterinarian / Hospital Owner
Dr. Martins graduated from the University of Tennessee, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998. He did an emergency externship in Phoenix, Arizona, then began his career in small animal medicine and surgery at the Basking Ridge Animal Hospital. He has worked at the Hunterdon Hills Animal Hospital and Long Valley Animal Hospital. For the past 9 years, Dr. Martins has proudly worked to make the Belle Mead Animal Hospital what it is today. It's AAHA accreditation and laser pain wellness center proves its standard to veterinary excellence. Dr. Martins' professional interests include veterinary dentistry, animal behavior, pain management, and most importantly family practice. Helping families with their pets creates a healthy, happy human-pet and family bond that can last for generations. His professional goal has been to create a hospital environment of the best care and healing. A culture of respect and dedication where team members who love their profession and patients so much that they don't want to leave. We at the BMAH enjoy practicing veterinary medicine and are about making sure pet owners receive the best care that is customer built for their pet and different from what they can get elsewhere. Some of the things that makes us different is that we truly want to listen to our clients and they want to listen to us. The number one problem in most veterinary practices is that most pet owners don't know what veterinarians can do for their pets. Pet owners don't fully understand the value of preventative healthcare until they see it first hand. Magic happens when we share our wisdom, insights, and strategies for maintaining the health of our patients and pets. Dr. Martins and the entire BMAH think it's a privilege to treat pets and families in our area. We want everyone to know we care and think communication is key. We are just a phone call away. please come in and meet our team.
