Dr. Cheryl Rahal

Dr. Cheryl Rahal

Veterinarian

Dr. Cheryl Rahal came to Phoenix in February of 2002 with her husband, Dr. Bryan Neidigh. Dr. Rahal received a BS in Zoology from the University of Washington, Seattle in December 1988, doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University in Pullman, WA in May 1994, and earned Board Certification from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in August 1999 after completing a 3 year residency program in Equine Medicine at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital of University of California-Davis. Dr. Rahal spent her first two years in Arizona practicing her expertise in Equine Internal Medicine. Although Equine Medicine had been her career focus, Dr. Rahal altered her career path to fit the needs of her family. Dr. Rahal practiced in small animal emergency and critical care from 2004 to 2007, utilizing her knowledge of the critically ill patient. In 2007 Dr. Rahal joined the team in small animal care at Desert Hills Animal Clinic, and in 2017 opened The Pet Wellness Center.

Dr. Rahal and Dr. Neidigh have two children, their daughter is studying nursing at GCU and their son is in middle school loving every and any sport.

Dr. Rahal is active in her church, volunteering in the youth ministry. She loves sharing the great outdoors with her family, hiking with her lab, Mable; horseback riding with Crash and Rocket, or just hanging out in the yard with the parrot, Dolly, the tortoise, Shelvin, and the chickens and turkey. But ofcourse, the best times are cuddling with her kitty, Erie.

DR. ALEXANDRIA HOLLIS

Dr. Alexandria Hollis

Veterinarian

Dr. Alexandria Hollis is a native of Phoenix, Arizona. Much to the chagrin of her Sun Devil parents, Dr. Hollis received her BS in Veterinary Science from the University of Arizona in Tucson. It is there that she met her husband Spencer. Between her undergraduate studies and beginning veterinary school, Dr. Hollis worked in human tissue banking where she cultivated an avid interest in pathology.

In October of 2018, Dr. Hollis received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine with highest honors from Ross University. She completed her clinical year at Texas A&M in College Station, Texas. During her graduate studies, Dr. Hollis worked as a research assistant within the Departments of Epidemiology and Pathology. She contributed to the study of Spatial Distribution of Heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) in Dogs on St. Kitts as well as co-authored multiple case studies in Virtual Pathology Rounds (e-book).

Dr. Hollis enjoys east-coast swing dancing, camping, long-distance swimming, baking, and crocheting. Her greatest love is curling up on the couch with a good book and her two cats, Snickers and Houdini.

Toby

Clinic Concierge

Hello everyone! I’m Toby, the Clinic Concierge. I take my job very seriously and love to greet all of our clients and patients. I’m a really great emotional support buddy and can help if you’re feeling down. I also love to sit and chat with our clients when their pets are in the back getting treatments. It’s not all work and no play though. When I’m not busy being the best employee ever I enjoy nice long cozy naps in one of my many fluffy beds or diving through my giant toy bucket. I love my job, but the best part? Treats! Will work for food. Come by and see me, in all of the awesomeness that I am!
