Dr. Lisa Kimball joined to Old Derby team in 2020 after practicing for several years on the South Shore. Dr. Kimball was destined for the veterinary profession as she grew up watching and learning from her father in his veterinary hospital. “I started out watching surgery perched on a stool as a toddler and finally worked as a technician through high school. My father inspired my career and instilled in me the importance of humility as I continue to learn a little more from each of my patients.”
After an undergraduate education at Binghamton University, Dr. Kimball earned her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University. A member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA), she has continued to challenge herself and advance her knowledge while following her interests in Preventative (Wellness) Medicine, Chronic Disease Management and Soft Tissue Surgery.
In addition to her love of animals, Dr. Kimball values the opportunity to build strong, lasting relationships with pet owners so that together they can work to strengthen the human-animal bond that we all cherish. For her, honesty and compassion are the guiding principles that allow her to be an advocate for patients while respecting the individual priorities of pet owners.
Her advice to new pet parents would be to remember that while we are living in the age of information, there is no substitute for a real person to guide you. The internet, breeders, trainers and others can provide valuable insight; but no outside source has all the answers or appreciates the full uniqueness of your animal family member. As veterinary professionals, we dedicate our lives to providing the highest standard of care our team has extensive knowledge and experience that we are ready to share with you.
Do not be afraid to bring forward your questions and concerns so we can collaboratively develop the best plan to keep your furry companion healthy, happy, and thriving.
For Dr. Kimball, Veterinary Medicine is truly a family affair. From the early days of learning at the side of her father to today in practicing alongside her husband, Dr. Sam Kimball; she is ready to share her passion, knowledge, and experience with your family.
