Alex Hill, D.V.M.

Dr. Alex Hill graduated from Harvard University with a liberal arts degree in 1987. After wading through the shark infested waters of Wall Street for a few years, he decided to head south to work with safer animals. He graduated from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997.

He has since gained a broad range of experience with the care and treatment of small animals by working with a number of excellent veterinarians in both the emergency and critical care environment (Savannah Veterinary Emergency Hospital) and that of general practice (Charleston, SC; Lake Orion, MI; and Wilmington, NC). Since December 2008, he has been able to use his education and experience to mold Central Animal Hospital into the practice it is today.
