Summary

Dr. Feeney received his D.V.M. from Colorado State University, completed a small animal rotating internship at Purdue University, and completed his master’s degree and radiology residency at the University of Georgia. His special interests include the use of imaging techniques (particularly radiography, ultrasonography, and computed tomography) to conduct medical work-ups and investigate spontaneous disease. Dr. Feeney has 35 years of radiology experience.
