Mike Corcoran, CertAqV, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Washington State University


Dr. Mike Corcoran has a passion for exotic species, including reptiles, birds, small mammals, pot-bellied pigs, goats, and fish. He is a Certified Aquatic Veterinarian, which means the hospital now sees aquatic species and does pond calls. Dr. Corcoran is also available to provide ultrasound, endoscopic, and surgical services for a wide variety of animals. His philosophy is that all of these animals deserve the same level of care that their human caretakers would expect for themselves to ensure they have a good quality of life for as long as possible.

Dr. Corcoran is a 2008 graduate of Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. He joined Wakefield following two years at an exotics-only practice in Mesa, Arizona, and five years at an emergency specialty practice seeing cats, dogs, and exotic species in Vancouver, Washington.

Dr. Corcoran’s other great passion is diving, both scuba diving and freediving. On days off work in the summer he will usually be found underwater off the coast of Cape Cod or the North Shore.

Dr. Corcoran is learning Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. He and his wife (also a veterinarian) live north of Boston with bearded dragon Button, ball python Jeffrey, clownfish Krusty, cats Amy and Kiska, and dogs Jose and Maya. After leaving arid Arizona in early 2015, they are excited about hiking, cycling, kayaking, stand up paddleboard, skiing, playing soccer, and going to Boston Breakers and New England Revolution games in New England.
