"Myriad’s effort to patent human DNA was one of the worst manifestations of the inequality in access to health, which in turn is one of the worst manifestations of the country’s economic inequality." - Joseph Stiglitz.  Healthcare, intellectual property, and gross inequality: 
In its recent, unanimous decision that human genes cannot be patented, the Supreme Court gave a rare victory to the cause of economic fairness.

Basic Information
We've taken our three cats to Uptown Vets for the last two years and we couldn't be happier with the care they've received. All the techs are capable and caring, and you really get the sense that everyone there treats your pets like they're part of their own family. The entire team at Uptown Vets is stellar. Drs. Obernesser and Sullivan are deeply compassionate and always strive to do what's best for your pets. They are easy to talk to and spend the time with you that you need to understand all your options and details of any treatment. They are understanding and pragmatic in balancing the pros and cons when dealing with difficult care decisions, and have helped us through a series of care decisions with our beloved older cat. We're very grateful to the entire team for the care they've provided to her and to our younger two cats as well. I recommend the practice to any pet owners in the area (or even a little farther away - we travel down from Washington Heights and it's well worth the trip!).
