Dr. Gangadhar Patil, D.V.M., M.S.
Owner of Compassion Veterinary Clinic

Dr. Patil grew up in India as part of a large family of doctors of human medicine.  He was influenced by one of his teachers to pursue veterinary medicine.  Dr. Patil  graduated from Mysore Veterinary College in Bengaluru, India in 1981 with honors in pathology.  While persuing his veterinary studies he was also quite accomplished in sports and represented his University in Field Hockey. 

Dr. Patil arrived in the United States in 1982 where he continued his veterinary studies in pathology.  He received his Masters Degree in Pathology at Albany Medical College in 1985 and worked as a pathologist at New York University Medical Center for the next two years.  In 1987, he chose to work more closely with pets and their owners and moved to Massachusetts to begin working as a small animal veterinarian at the New England Animal Medical Center in West Boylston.  While continuing to work in West Boylston, Dr. Patil opened Compassion Veterinary Clinic on Hosmer Street in Marlborough, MA in August of 1989.  Looking to expand his practice, Dr. Patil purchased and renovated the property located on 275 Boston Post Road East (the original Registry of Motor Vehicles in Marlborough).  In 1995 he moved Compassion Veterinary Clinic to its current location.

Dr. Patil is actively involved in the World Vets Organization.  This group of volunteers travel to countries/areas in need and provide charitable veterinary care.  He also donates his time as a veterinarian and member of the board of trustees helping to run an animal shelter in Mysuru, India.

Dr. Patil has many interests beyond veterinary medicine.  He enjoys outdoor activities that include whitewater rafting, hiking, and zip lining.  Travel, however, is his passion along with his dream of visiting every country in the world.

Dr. Courtney Lewis, D.V.M.

Courtney Lewis graduated from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001.  She worked and volunteered at the Tufts Wildlife clinic before and during her time at the school, where she gained a deep appreciation for the wildlife of New England.  Following graduation, Dr. Lewis worked on the North Shore for 5 years at a small animal/exotic/wildlife practice.  When the opportunity arose to work as a relief veterinarian in New South Wales, Australia, she jumped at the chance to work with their companion animals for a while.  She worked there for 4 months before returning to practice in Massachusetts.  In addition to working as a small animal veterinarian, Dr. Lewis has worked with exotic animals at a local zoo.  She joined the team at Compassion Veterinary Clinic in 2008 as a relief veterinarian, and has since become invaluable to both staff and clients.

Dr. Lewis has a keen interest in all types of dance and has taught Ballet, Tap, and Jazz.  She is a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism which involves historical studies in the Medieval Renaissance time period.  Dr. Lewis enjoys spending time with her family and currently has one cat, Chloe Mau.  Since the passing of her beloved dog, she has not yet had the heart to adopt another, but enjoys walking, and playing with the dogs in her neighborhood.

Dr. Stephanie Thuy Wilson, BVM&S, MRCVS

Stephanie Wilson became a part of the team at Compassion Veterinary Clinic when hired as a full time associate veterinarian in July of 2015.  Her extensive knowledge, quick-thinking ability, likeable personality, and empathy for distressed animals make her valued by staff and clients alike.

Originally a native of Los Angeles, Dr. Wilson's desire to see the world led to her decision to pursue her veterinary education in Scotland.  In 2009 she graduated from the Royal School of Veterinary Studies of the University of Edinburgh.  During and after her time in Scotland, Dr. Wilson has acquired invaluable veterinary experience in other areas of the world, including the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Although she is interested in all aspects of veterinary care, Dr. Wilson particularly enjoys internal and emergency medicine.

Outside of work, Dr. Wilson spends time with her family, friends, and pets.  She enjoys good food, camping, hiking, and just being outside in the fresh air.  Travel is still in her blood and she plans to do much more of it in the future.
