Accidents and illness happen even to the healthiest of cats and dogs. This is where Oak View Animal Hospital really excels.

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.
Dr. Bradac began college in New York but soon transferred to Auburn University where she obtained her B.S. in Zoology in 2001, M.S. in Biological Sciences in 2004 and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2007.
Bridget Stephens, DVMAssociate Veterinarian
Although Dr. Stephens grew up in Florida, she fell in love with Alabama while completing her undergraduate degree in Zoology at Auburn University. She then went on to earn her D.V.M. at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. After completing her degree, she lived and worked for two years in Winchester, TN before settling in Gadsden, AL. Shortly after she married Dr. Wesley Stephens, also a veterinarian. They have now moved to Birmingham with their 4 dogs and 4 cats.
