Dr. Justin Margolis’s path to becoming a veterinarian is a story of transformation, fueled by a love for animals and a strong desire to make a difference.
Growing up, the medical world surrounded Dr. Margolis; his father was a respected surgeon, and his mother, a dedicated nurse. While it might have seemed like a natural fit for him to follow in their footsteps, Dr. Margolis initially embarked on a different path, pursuing a degree in Business Management. However, fate had other plans in store for him.
A pivotal moment in Dr. Margolis’s life occurred when he tragically lost his beloved dog. The overwhelming desire to have been in the operating room to save his loyal companion’s life awakened a newfound passion within him. This event ignited a calling—an unwavering commitment to become a veterinarian and advocate for the well-being of animals.
Recently, Dr. Margolis graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Margolis’s areas of expertise and special interest include dermatology and surgery, where he seeks to make a significant impact on the lives of his furry patients.
His commitment to excellence is further evidenced by his certification as a fear-free practitioner, ensuring that each animal he encounters experiences the utmost comfort and care.
Outside of the office, Dr. Margolis finds solace and joy in the company of his five beloved cats and shares countless adventures with his pug, Otis, during long (but not too long) walks.
