We have been waiting for the right person to follow our standard of care and join our team and we finally found him!

Welcome Dr. Alexander Diedrich!

"Like many veterinarians, my passion for animals began when I was young. I realized growing up that I wanted to heal both animals and the families that cared for them. I went to Michigan State University to pursue my passion, graduating with a degree in Microbiology. While at MSU I developed a love of research I maintain to this day. This followed me through my time at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, where I was involved with human cancer research. I use my dual passions to develop the best treatments for my patients and ease the burdens on their families. Together with my fiancée, I am lucky enough to be owned by two kneady cats, Cinder and Rhea, and one sweet three-legged rescue Pitbull, Tigger."
