Veterinarian seeks oversight of health board

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Local veterinarian Dr. Joel Joseph, owner of the Wise Owl Animal Care Hospital, is asking senators to hold an oversight hearing on the Guam Board of Allied Health Examiners. Joseph sent a letter to committee chair Frank Aguon, Jr., saying he finds himself threatened by the Board in regards to a revocation of his license.

The board served him with a summons to appear next week so that they can begin the revocation process. However, Dr. Joseph disagrees with the board's action, as he has yet to be informed what they are charging him with, adding that the Superior Court of Guam cleared him of any allegations.

A hearing date has been scheduled by the Board for Monday at 6pm.
