Experience and the Highest Standards of Care

Dr. William Murphy has practiced medicine throughout the Rochester area for more than 30 years. He and his wife, Robin (who is also the practice manager) opened Westside Animal Hospital in December 2016 to offer residents the highest standards of veterinary care in a brand new, state-of-the-art facility.

Featuring a clean, contemporary environment, Westside Animal Hospital is certified  and operated in compliance with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) guidelines and uses Fear Free℠ protocols. We are focused on delivering the highest standards of care with respect and compassion.

We have an experienced team of Fear FreeSM certified professionals. As we grow and expand our staff, the new members of Westside’s team are required to become Fear Free℠ certified as well.  Our team is dedicated to delivering service for you and your loved pet with respect, compassion and the highest standards of care possible.

Our phones are answered quickly by highly trained compassionate professionals so you will receive immediate and courteous attention when you call. Our standards are high, our staff and equipment is top notch, and we are passionate about delivering quality veterinary medical care.

We look forward to meeting you and your pet!

Please take a moment to tour our hospital and to meet our staff.

20 years ago, I spent thousands with several vets trying to find out why my Golden had bumps on her skin… I went to Dr. Murphy who knew immediately what it was and gave her a pill. Two days later it was cleared up… This new building is incredible to provide him all the tools he needs… I cannot recommend this vet enough… Buddy deserves the best and Dr. Murphy is the best of the best!
