Dr. Crystal has loved animals of all shapes, size, and types since she was born. Dr. Crystal is the practice owner and hopes to be around for many more years!. Her earliest memories surround petting cats and sitting on horses. She decided to become a veterinarian when she was 7, and it remains the only real choice for her. Dr. Crystal graduated from Cornell Veterinary University in 1996. She & her family moved from New Jersey to New York in 2006. Crystal spent a few years trying to find the right hospital to work for, and eventually decided that the best thing to do would be to open a practice of her own. Professionally, Dr. Crystal enjoys internal medicine, dermatology, Ultrasound, and practice management. In her spare time, Crystal loves hiking with her dogs, Rainy and Loki, riding her horse, Smokey, reading a book with one of her cats curled up on her lap, skiing with her son, Nathaniel, and playing tennis with her daughter, Katrina. She also enjoys time out with her husband, family, and friends, and doing almost anything active and outside.
