Dr. Elise Geldon is a born and bred Montgomery County native, and professes herself to be simply “wild” about animals. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in biology from Princeton University and graduated magna cum laude from the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Following graduation, Dr. Geldon completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at VCA Veterinary Referral Associates in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and then worked at a small animal practice in Olney, Maryland for almost 5 years. Dr. Geldon, a true animal scientist, has traveled the world and studied abroad in Australia, taking classes and studying the social behavior of dolphins.
Proudly, Dr. Geldon announced her partnership with Dr. Weitzman in February 2013. Since then she has focused on adding new and innovative medical services and technology to their thriving practice. She is dedicated to carrying on the legacy of Dr. Weitzman’s well-respected and beloved practice in a personal and compassionate style that places pets and their people first. She is a warm and welcoming vet who looks forward to developing life-long lasting relationships with each and every one of her new pet patients and their family members.
Dr. Geldon has a special interest in soft tissue surgery, behavior, and alternative therapies, including acupuncture. She is a member of the AVMA, Maryland VMA, and AAFP. She lives with her husband, his Boston Terrier, and her Chihuahua in Bethesda and enjoys traveling, horseback riding, scuba diving, reading, and watching movies in her (rare) spare time.
