Dr. David Geiger received his BS from M.I.T. in 1999, DVM from Cornell University in 2003, and completed a residency in veterinary neurology and neurosurgery at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. He passed the ACVIM Neurology certifying exam in 2010, with board certification awaiting Master’s thesis defense. He previously completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the Veterinary Specialty Hospital of San Diego, and completed additional training in neuroimaging, neurosurgery, and emergency/critical care at Canada West Veterinary Specialists.
Dr. Geiger established the first neurology/neurosurgery service in San Francisco, and developed and operated full-time neurology/neurosurgery departments at several SF Bay Area area hospitals between 2009-2017. He also helped to launch the only dedicated veterinary neurology center in New Mexico. Between 2017-2021, Dr. Geiger provided locum and part-time clinical and consulting services to numerous multi-specialty hospitals across the United States, including at VSH-Ethos. After having worked at dozens of specialty hospitals, when an opportunity to join VSH full-time materialized, he was thrilled to rejoin the hospital which helped launch his career 18 years earlier. The top-tier veterinarians, staff, and facilities combined with highest standard of care and collaborative workplace made this decision an easy one.
Dr. Geiger is proficient in all areas of medical and surgical neurology and neuroimaging and especially enjoys teaching students, interns, and residents. He is a past president of the San Francisco Veterinary Medical Association and member of the AVMA, Veterinary Neurosurgical Society, and British Veterinary Neurology Society. He frequently compares notes with his fiancé, who is an endocrine surgeon (for humans!). When not working, he enjoys exploring offshore and inland waterways by boat and backroads and trails by motorcycle.
