The veterinarians at Martin Veterinary Hospital are three very enthusiastic women, who work together as a team to provide empathetic, quality health care for you and your pets. In a typical day, we see a variety of pets. For some we may diagnose health problems, provide preventive health care through wellness testing and vaccination, prescribe medications for pets suffering from infections or illnesses, interpret laboratory and x-ray results and perform a variety of surgical procedures.

Dr. Stephanie Chen spent her formative years in Montreal and is now settled in Toronto. It all started with “Can we get a horse? We can keep it in the backyard.” This was Dr. Chen’s reply to her parents when she was told they could not have a cat or dog. Dr. Chen knew from a young age that she wanted a career working with animals. She followed her childhood dream to the University of Guelph where she graduated as a veterinarian in 1993. She has spent her career working in the Greater Toronto Area and she is very happy to join the MVH team. She has great interest in both surgery and internal medicine and enjoys the challenge of interesting cases. Together with her family, she enjoys the outdoors and going cycling.
