Dr. Matthew Hefner joined our team of doctors in June, 2020. He comes to us from North Carolina, where he grew up and went to college. He earned his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees from North Carolina State University.
You could say Dr. Hefner grew up in veterinary medicine. He was inspired to work with animals by his uncle and grandfather who were also veterinarians. He fell in love with working with animals when he began working in their practice at the age of 12 and the rest was history. Prior to obtaining his DVM degree he worked as a veterinary assistant.
Dr. Hefner really enjoys the areas of surgery, ultrasonography and dermatology, but ultimately, he gets great satisfaction out of keeping people’s best friends healthy and active.
Dr. Hefner has three domestic short hair kitties. “Albondiga” was a blood donor at the veterinary school at NC State University. “Frijol” was a patient in a surgery class and “Chicharron” was a stray that showed up at Dr. Hefner’s house.
In his time away from work, he enjoys watching and playing all sports, hiking, traveling, going to the gym and spending time with friends.
