Meet Our Veterinarians
Davis Hall, DVM
Dr. Davis Hall is the founder and patriarch of Columbia Pike Animal Hospital and Emergency Center, founded in 1974. Our actual roots were planted in 1974 when, after serving in the military, Dr. Hall acquired Town & Country Animal Hospital in Fairfax. The practice treated both large and small animals, as Northern Virginia was still richly rural.
Through the years, Dr. Hall organized and nurtured a growing staff of veterinary professionals, all embracing his philosophy of expert treatment delivered with compassion. He also serves as a touchstone for our veterinarians, as his wealth of knowledge and experience will always help to ensure the best outcomes.
Most of his clients consider him part of the family, having cared for generations of pets, some traveling many miles for wellness exams and treatment. Both hospitals have grown to include full-service kennels and grooming facilities with more than 150 staff members. Dr. Hall graduated from Texas A&M University in 1969.
Reed Hall, DVM
Dr. Reed Hall, son of Dr. Davis Hall, extends the family’s veterinary legacy. Dr. Hall displays enormous compassion for his patients and clients alike. His clients never leave their appointments without having been educated on topics related to either their pet’s health, treatment, or nutrition. He also has an affinity for surgery and animal dentistry. This is among many reasons he has been named one of NOVA Magazine’s “Top Vets.”
Dr. Hall and his family, including son Davis Hall V and daughter Hope, live in Clifton and are a part of the fellowship at Expectation Church. He supports and shares a Christian veterinarian philosophy with other veterinarians and veterinary students. He is a member of the C12 Group, a national Christian peer advisory organization and he is also active in the Christian Veterinary Mission.
He practices at both Town & Country Animal Hospital and Columbia Pike Animal Hospital and Emergency Center. Dr. Hall completed his undergraduate degree at West Virginia University and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree at Virginia Tech.

Courtney Katsur, VMD
Black and yellow proud, Dr. Katsur hails from Pittsburgh, PA. Before becoming a Veterinarian, she had a career in private banking. The demands of Wall Street allowed very little time for one of her true loves, animals. Time spent volunteering for Puppies Behind Bars helped set the stage for a major career change. She attained certification in pet grooming, became a Caninology Canine Body Worker and planned for opening a homeopathic spa and rehabilitation center for pets. Later, she realized that becoming a Veterinarian was her true calling.
Dr. Katsur attended Boston College for undergraduate studies and the University of Pennsylvania where she earned her Veterinary degree. She has particular expertise in dermatology, chronic allergies, and auto-immune diseases. She also possesses talents in soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, and preventative care.

Her clients leave with new insights after each visit as she is an advocate of education, be it wellness, disease or injury.
