As a pioneer of integrative medicine, Dr. Marty Goldstein has been called everything from “quack” to “miracle worker.” Dr. Goldstein’s practice, Smith Ridge Veterinary Center, blends holistic and traditional treatment for animals after other vets have given up hope. Beyond that, it raises deep questions about the efficacy of integrated care.
In The Dog Doc, director Cindy Meehl (Buck), goes behind the scenes at Smith Ridge to capture the full drama of “Dr. Marty” and his colleagues’ life-changing commitment to wellness and the astounding results they achieve. Filmed over a 2½ year period, Meehl’s unobtrusive camera highlights the vulnerability of her subjects – canine and human – while tracking each animal’s progress. The Dog Doc combines the touching stories of families with the hard science of integrative care. By casting an intimate lens over this unique world, The Dog Doc shows the healing powers of integrative wellness, compassion and hope.
