Dr. Philip A. Williams

Dr. Phil Williams obtained both his BS in Animal Science (1987) and his DVM (1991) from the University of California, Davis.

I was born and raised in Michigan, but have also lived in Georgia and Florida, moving to Ohio in 2001. I have been in the veterinary business since 1989. Although I have had many animals, from horses to guinea pigs, at this time, the love of my life is my cat "Baby Kitty" and my dove "Coo".
