Clinical Dog Examination

Dedicating our lives to the well being of animals is what puts us on top.  Treating them like they’re our own, is what keeps us there.

About Us


Dr. Boone is co-owner of Adams Morgan Animal Hospital. He was born and raised on a farm in North Carolina. After paying his way through professional school, Dr. Boone graduated from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1975. He then settled in Maryland with his wife Barbara. After several years of practice Dr. Boone developed a special interest in dentistry. He took several courses on performing root canals, fillings and specialized oral surgery.  Dr. Boone served 20 years in the United States Army Reserves. He is very active in his church, Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Rockville, where he serves as chairman of the deacon board. In his free time he enjoys golfing, cooking, landscaping, and traveling with his wife.

Dr. Jerrold Boone is co-owner of Adams Morgan Animal Hospital. He was born in Opelika, AL, while his father attended veterinary school at the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine. Following in his father’s footsteps, Dr. Boone graduated with a D.V.M. from the same institution in 2001. He received a B.A. degree from Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. His special interests in veterinary medicine include soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. He attended a post-doctoral Extensive Small Animal Orthopedic Surgery Course at The Virginia-Maryland College of Regional Veterinary Medicine on the campus of VA Tech University. Dr. Boone’s father has always been a great inspiration to him. Dr. Boone enjoys golf, sports, motorcycling, spending time with his family and “anything that involves the outdoors”.

Dr. Gordon graduated from the University of Vermont with a BS in Animal Science in 2001. After four years at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts, he participated in a one-year small animal internship at the Animal Medical Center in New York.

Following a three-year small animal surgery residency at the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in Canada, he achieved Diplomate Status as a board-certified surgeon in 2010.

After four years in a small animal surgery practice outside Washington, DC, he and his family moved to Tasmania where he joined a small animal hospital and was the only specialist (surgical or otherwise) on the entire island.

Missing the oppressive mugginess of DC summers, the Gordons returned to their Bethesda home in 2016 and he joined Lazar Veterinary Surgery.

When not in surgery, Dr. Gordon tries to survive raising three sons. In rare moments of peace, he enjoys finding the perfect recipe, talking about outdoor activities, and subjecting innocent bystanders to his banjo playing.
