Dr. Nicholas De Pompa is a native of South Florida, and a lifelong animal lover. In his youth, he founded a rescue for small dogs and found homes for over 150 dogs. He and his sister would spend their weekends sitting outside the local PetSmart store in Pembroke Pines, Florida trying to find homes for the rescued dogs.
Dr. De Pompa went on to graduate from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in Alabama, then completed a one year Neurology and Neurosurgery Internship. This was followed by a three year Neurology and Neurosurgery Residency. Post-residency, Dr. De Pompa successfully passed the ACVIM Neurology certifying examination and became board-certified that same year. Dr. De Pompa also completed a Masters Degree in Biomedical Science with an emphasis on neuropathic pain identification and management.
Dr. De Pompa’s professional interests include all aspects of Neurology and Neurosurgery with a particular interest in pain management, brain and spinal cord surgery and encephalitis management.
Dr. Depompa was extremely professional and knowledgable. He saved my dog after several other neurologists said there was nothing that could be done. I would highly recommend him to anyone!Michael Walden
Dr. De Pompa shows great knowledge and compassion for our sweet pup Xena. He even took time out of his off-day to check in on her and give me an update on her status. Lisa looked after me, bringing me coffee and snacks, as I was stressing out. Lovely facility. Thank you for being a wonderful practice.Jennifer Budrock
