I just got an email from Councilmember Zine stating the Prupas hiring will be investigated. I told Zine that the most important thing is not Boks' made up history and whatever led to that deception, but whether Prupas is indeed a great vet who can "help the department to go to the next step."
If Prupas has the capability to make very substantial changes, he should be given a green light. However, the apparent irregularities in his hiring present a credibility problem hanging over his appointment.
Viewing client evaluations of vets rated on the Internet is usually not helpful. However, one review did state he did perform a successful feline kidney transplant. Other reviews were either glowing or critical. People usually don't comment unless they are very pleased or displeased.
