Meet Dr. Alpert and the rest of our team!

Dr. Alpert obtained her Bachelors of Science in Psychology at the University of Utah. She received her DVM from Oregon State University in 2002. She feels very proud to be an Oregon graduate because it is the smallest vet school in the country, so there is more hands-on experience, and at the time she attended a portion of the program was done at Washington State University thus giving her perspectives from two schools. Her favorite things to do as a veterinarian are soft tissue surgery and dentistry. She also has a strong interest in canine reproductive medicine. What gives her the most pleasure as a veterinarian is working with people to develop customized pain management solutions for their arthritic pets—feline and canine.

Thank you for making us one of the highest-rated veterinary hospitals in Longview, WA.
