Alejandro Martinez, DVM, Associate Veterinarian
Dr Martinez is the newest member of our Emergency Medicine team. He joined VCA Old Marple after completion of a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at VCA Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists in New York.
Prior to graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Martinez studied wildlife medicine in various parts of the world including Columbia, South Africa, and Uganda. He is currently the proud owner of a bearded dragon named Bruce Banner, a German Sheperd mix named Bella and cat named Bina.
Why I do what I do: I love what I do because I love animals and the science behind Veterinary medicine. As a veterinarian working in the Emergency room I find it very rewarding to help pets and their owners when they need it the most.
Special Note: When Dr. Martinez is at work he's focused and always has two things on his mind and that's the client and the patient. He's not just a doctor but he's also someone who gets emotionally involved with the outcome of his patients. His number one goal is make that patient feel better. He's an amazing person, doctor and a huge part of our family.
