Dr. Matthew Brooks
Dr. Brooks grew up in Tampa, Florida where boating and fishing were a part of every day life.
His love of animals began at a very early age with his first dog, Kahlua.
He had originally wanted to pursue wildlife biology, but soon steered away from this field as the focus is primarily on herd health and not the individual animal.
He knew veterinary medicine was the right field for him, as his main focus has always been animal welfare and strengthening the human-animal bond.
Dr. Brooks studied at Colorado State University (Go Rams!, sorry Aggies fans) where he completed his B.S. in Biology, his Masters in Epidemiology and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.
He moved to Las Vegas after graduation where he grew, and managed, a high-volume 7 doctor small animal practice.
There, he met his wife, who is also a veterinarian. They have 2 small children.
In his free time, Dr. Brooks likes to go boating, work on his small ranch, and spend time with his family.

Dr. Stephanie Driscoll
Dr. Driscoll grew up in Houston, Texas. She received her undergraduate degree in Wildlife and Fisheries at Texas A&M University, where she continued on to finish her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.
Although many long years were spent in school learning all the medicine necessary to succeed as a veternarian, it didn’t take long to realize that so much of what it means to be a great veterinarian isn’t something that could be taught or read in a book. It’s about compassion for both animals and the people that love them, strengthening and supporting the powerful animal-human bond, and treating each individual patient as unique and special beings. That is the philosophy that Dr. Driscoll strives to implement each and every day.
Her main veterinary interests include internal medicine, dermatology, and ophthomology. In her free time, she loves traveling, reading, running, and exploring the outdoors with her energetic Catahoula, Penelope.
