Bittersweet Goodbye As Dr. Stewart Starts New Path

Friends, Clients & Horse Family,

We are reaching out with bittersweet news as we announce Dr. Williams and Dr. Stewart taking different directions. This is a decision that affects all of our horse family and we recognize the ways this news may be received. Over the past several years the shift from Cooper Williams VMD to Equine Sports Medicine of Maryland has been a growth that reflected both of our interests, allowing our goals to align. However, after much contemplation and self-reflection we realize that the two of us are in different phases of our veterinary careers, leading us in alternate directions, both literally and metaphorically.

As a result, after looking into various options, we have made the decision to follow these paths independently. Over the last few years, Equine Sports Medicine of Maryland has gradually shifted away from general practice and toward a 100% Sports Medicine practice. With Dr. Stewart leaving, Dr. Williams will shift to a solo 100% sports medicine practice balanced with time pursuing his passion for teaching, consulting, and more continuing education opportunities, while Dr. Stewart will continue to expand her practice into Florida, basing in Ocala and returning to Maryland seasonally.

We are still a phone call, text and consult away and want to help prepare and transition clients for this change as best possible starting with this formal announcement. Dr. Stewart is not leaving for Florida until December and does plan to return in Spring. It is an amicable decision and during overlap in Maryland we will continue to work together to provide for our horse athletes as we have always been privileged to do in the past.

That's A Wrap
