Greg Dobkin, DVM
I am excited to be working in and owning a practice in Parker, a place I call home. After growing up in Southern California, I received my Bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University in Biology and Zoology. During my time at CSU, I fell in love with the Front Range and knew it would become my home after vet school. I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Kansas State University in 2005 and 3 days later moved to Parker. There is not another community I would rather be a part of and I am thrilled to continue to build relationships and form new ones with owners and their four-legged members of the family. My interests are preventative medicine, soft tissue surgery, and dental treatments.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my kids grow, and supporting them in their many activities. If I am not at work you can often find me on a soccer field, in the pool or on the trails in and around Parker as I train Ironman triathlons and marathons. I am joined at home by my wife- Erin, kids- Connor and Sydney and our dogs- Tulo and Lager.
I am a 2006 graduate from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine. After practicing in Oklahoma for 6 years, my family made the move to our favorite state, Colorado. Since that time I have been in practice and managerial roles in the Denver area. After moving to Parker in 2022, I was ready to become part of the local community and joined Meridian Animal Hospital. I am so excited to be practicing in a locally owned hospital. I look forward to meeting the great people of Parker and their pets. My interests are internal medicine, preventative medicine, and senior care to ensure our pets get the most enjoyment out of their senior years.
When I am not at work I enjoy spending time outdoors, camping is our favorite family activity. I am married to Andrew and we have 3 daughters. Our oldest, Alison, is in graduate school and we have twin girls at Ponderosa High School. We also share our home with our two dogs- Grace and Piper, two cats- Noel and Duchess, and a guinea pig Lucy.
