Meet the friendly staff at Coastal Animal Hospital Wellness Center!
_________________________________________________________________________________________________ Dr Lisa Edwards graduated from Cornell University in 1984. She opened Coastal Animal Hospital in 1991. In 1992 she became Certified in Animal Chiropractic becoming one of the first in this area to do so. She continued to broaden her traditional education by gaining additional training in Acupuncture, Clinical Nutrition and Homeopathy. With each patient she uses her traditional diagnostic skills but can also offer more treatment modalities to fit each unique patient and ultimate goal. Dr Edward's vision for what Coastal Animal Hospital can continue to be and become inspires us daily to continue to strive to offer the most complete healthcare for every patient we are privileged to see.
Dr Edwards sees limited clients and schedule varies so it's greatly recommended to call the clinic directly to discuss your specific needs.
