Dr. Suzanne Summe
Dr. Suzanne Summe grew up in the Northern Kentucky area where her roots run deep. She attended Northern Kentucky University for her undergraduate degree where she made life-long friends with Dr. Kelly Gersch. The two doctors are now taking on a new and exciting endeavor as the Medical Leads of PetVet Urgent Care.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree, Dr. Summe attended Auburn University where she graduated with honors. She moved back to the NKY/Greater Cincinnati area after finishing school, and completed a rotating and internal medicine internship to further hone her skills as a practitioner. Prior to joining PetVet, she worked in the fast-paced and exciting world of Emergency Medicine. During this time, she saw a variety of critically ill and complex cases and was able to learn from and work along-side highly skilled specialists in the field.
Client communication and understanding are two of the highest priorities for Dr. Summe in her work. There is nothing better than knowing she and her client are on the same page about how to best take care of their pet. In addition to the client experience, she prides herself on striving to create a positive and productive work environment with her team.
Outside of work, Dr. Summe has two cats named Delilah and JJ who she bottled raised as kittens and considers her feline children. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, traveling, and experiencing new cultures and foods. She is a life-long learner and is always up for trying something new and exciting.
Dr. Summe is so excited to start this journey into urgent care and to be able to provide pet parents with timely and easily accessible care when they need it most!
