Our Veterinary Dermatology Team

Jacquelyn Diamond, DVM, Diplomate ACVD

During her undergraduate years, Dr. Jacquelyn Diamond volunteered with the Italian Greyhound Club of America Rescue Foundation. When she saw the number of dogs surrendered to rescue for easily preventable diseases, she realized that she wanted to become an advocate for animals and help educate their owners on the importance of preventative care. Dr. Diamond chose the dermatology specialty because of the chronic nature of the cases, which allows her to build relationships with her patients and clients. Dr. Diamond enjoys all aspects of dermatology, but has a special interest in CO2 laser surgery, hair restoration therapies, otitis and allergies.
