Sonographer: Lara Wiseman, DVM
Dr. Lara Wiseman always knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian and worked in the field as a volunteer and then technician as soon as she could. She completed her undergraduate degree in Biology and Chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania and it was there that her interest in ultrasound was peaked working as a specialist technician in radiology. Dr. Wiseman then attended the University of Florida to study veterinary medicine and graduated with academic honors - Go Gators! She went on to complete an intensive internship and years in fast-paced general practice where she continued to utilize and hone her special interest in sonography before jumping in full time. Her history managing complicated cases gives her a unique opportunity to provide both ultrasound findings and what that means for the next steps in your patient’s care.
Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Wiseman enjoys reading, traveling and spending time outdoors - hiking, biking and diving - with her husband Jake and amazing kids, Talia and Gabriel.
