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.
Dr. Tim Troia
Dr. Troia was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. His love and respect for animals, his desire to help people, and his passion for science and medicine drove him to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Troia received his B.S. in Animal Science from the University of Arkansas (WooPigSooie) and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!). He has worked in the greater New Orleans area as an emergency veterinarian and as a small animal general practitioner.
Some of his professional interests include emergency and critical care medicine, wound management, and neurology. In his free time, Dr. Troia enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter.

Dr. Stephanie Cerovsky
Dr. Cerovsky was born and raised in Fort Worth, TX. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences, with a minor in Animal Sciences, followed by her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Texas A&M University (WHOOP!!).
After graduation, she initially set out to become a board certified surgeon. She completed a general rotating internship in Miami, FL, a surgical internship in Akron, OH, and a second surgical internship in Las Vegas, NV. However, those 3 years of specialty training helped her realize that she missed the other aspects of veterinary medicine, including the long-term relationships created with the patients and their owners, which are developed through general practice.
Dr. Cerovsky’s interests include soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, wound management, pain management, anesthesia, and internal medicine. She has 3 animals that mean the world to her (a Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix, Ollie; a spunky little handicapped Rat Terrier, Chaz; and cat, Sage). In her free time, she enjoys exploring the outdoors with her dogs, live music, traveling, crafting, and spending time with her family up at their cabin in Arkansas.
Dr. Knight grew up in Round Rock, Texas. She received her undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences with a minor in Business from Texas A&M University and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from Lincoln Memorial University.
She grew up with 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks, where her love for animals began and when she realized that animals are an important part of the family. Working in the veterinary field, she quickly learned that while she loved animals, her favorite part was building relationships with owners and their four-legged family members.
She has special interests in working dogs, including police dogs, as well as internal medicine and surgery. In her free time she loves spending time with her Pitbull mix, Crixus, reading, traveling, and live music.
