Veterinarian agrees to courses, plans to sue

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Wise Owl Animal Clinic's Dr. Joel Joseph has agreed to take educational courses as ordered by the Guam Board of Allied Health Examiners, but he intends to appeal the charges filed by the board in the Superior Court of Guam. The board, after hearing testimony and reviewing evidence, found Dr. Joseph guilty of unprofessional conduct for using profanity when he spoke to Dr. Velma Harper. 

Dr. Joseph was also found to have failed to diagnose a fractured bone. The veterinarian believes the charges are bogus and the board has been on a mission to try to remove him.  Joseph will be required to undergo 11 hours of continued education in the next year, which he says he will do. 

The veterinarian adds though that he will continue to pursue legal action as he believes the board has wasted hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars.
