Dr. Joanne Finelli-Diaz, DVM
Prior to veterinary school, Dr. Diaz worked in research at the University of Florida and it is this background that compels her to trust medical and nutritional recommendations that arise from science and peer reviewed discussion versus internet opinions.
Two years in the Peace Core in Central America working in animal sciences provided an opportunity to learn cultural sensitivity, creative trouble shooting, and diplomatic resolution. Accompanied by excellent skills and the empathy that comes from being a visitor in a foreign land and poor country, Dr. Diaz brings the additional skill of fluent Spanish to her profession as well.
Finally, with the adoption of ” Murphy ” one year ago, she understands how a four footed, furry friend can completely take over ones house and heart.
