Our Veterinarians


Dr. Alicia Bruchman

As a young child I knew pretty early in life that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I have always loved animals and my first word as a child was “horse”. I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona where as a child I owned many different kinds of animals. I graduated from Colorado State University Veterinary Medicine program in 2010. Upon graduation I settled in Flagstaff so I could escape from the “Big City” of Phoenix and move up to the mountains. Shortly after moving to Flagstaff I met my husband Max. We enjoy spending time outdoors with our horses, goats, and dogs. We are expecting our first child shortly and can’t wait to introduce him to the beautiful mountain town we call home. I have a special interest in dermatology, dentistry, ophthalmology, and oncology.


Dr. Casandra Dobbin

I moved to Flagstaff to attend NAU where I majored in photojournalism and art and graduated in 2003. Shortly after graduation I felt that I needed to change paths and started to pursue the sciences and worked towards applying to veterinary school. I graduated in 2014 from Michigan State University Veterinary Medicine program. I grew to love Flagstaff so knew upon graduation that I wanted to move back to Arizona and find a job in this beautiful mountain town. I enjoy the outdoors and in my free time you may see me snowboarding, playing soccer, and hiking. I am married and have two beautiful little girls. My interests are in soft tissue surgery and internal medicine.
