Donald L. Piermattei (Deceased)


Several former students have told me that something I said or did many years ago had significantly affected their lives. Although I rarely remember the incidents, hearing about their impact reminds me that those in leadership become role models, for better or for worse, like it or not.

Donald L. Piermattei, DVM, PhD, DACVS

Don continues to be a role model and teacher to me and, through his contributions to orthopedics, all of us in small animal surgery. Through his leadership as the Chair of the Board of Regents during the establishment of the ACVS Foundation, Don has positively touched all ACVS Diplomates and our College.

Erick L. Egger, DVM, DACVS
