Meet the Doctors
Elizabeth B. Robinson, DVMManaging Veterinarian
Dr. Robinson is a veterinarian with an emphasis in small animal medicine that has been with Oak View Animal Hospital since January 2007. She became a partner in 2012.
A native of Montgomery, Alabama, Dr. Robinson says being a veterinarian is the perfect combination of her lifelong love of animals and the medical sciences. "What I enjoy most about my job is interacting with our clients and the feeling when you know you have truly made someone happy by helping their pet," she says. "Another great thing about my job is that I am constantly challenged and therefore able to learn something new every day, which makes me better at my job."
Tricia Bradac, DVMAssociate Veterinarian
Dr. Tricia Bradac was raised in a very small town in Western New York called Holley. During high school, she began working for a veterinarian close to home who had graduated from Auburn...and the rest is history.
