DR. ROBIN FRIEDMAN

PRACTICE OWNER, VETERINARIAN

Dr. Friedman opened My Vet Animal Hospital in May of 2006 after 14 dedicated years as an associate at another practice in Chicago. Since opening, we have grown into a thriving practice and continue to grow our professional team and services.

 

Dr. Friedman graduated from The University of Florida School of Veterinary Medicine in 1991 and obtained her undergraduate degree from Boston College.  Dr. Friedman is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners as well as a Fear Free Certified Professional. She was born in Tampa, Florida so she is definitely partial to the warmer weather months and enjoys being out in the sun or on the water with her family in Florida as much as possible.

 

She is raising her daughter, Cici, and her four legged family member, Evie! In her spare time you will find her enjoying long walks, running and the other love of her life – sushi!

DR. ARACELY CORDES

RELIEF VETERINARIAN

Dr. Aracely Cordes has been providing relief services at My Vet Animal Hospital since 2017. Dr. Cordes grew up on the south side of Chicago. She went to Iowa State for undergrad and the University of Illinois in Urbana for veterinary school. She graduated in 2011 and has been practicing in Chicago since. She is grateful to animals for showing us unconditional love and enjoys helping pets and their humans. She is devoted to finding the root of any problem and healing wounds. Her main interests in vet med are client education, collaboration, surgery, pain management, dentistry, and fear-free medicine. She loves learning and growing but realized she learns exponentially from her own pets including  Tom, her senior cat, and two late Goldens, Mac and Miller. Her own pets have taught her to have compassion not only for her patients but also for their worried parents. 

On ‘days off’ she enjoys exploring the city with her two human children, Maddie and Mason, traveling, reading, writing, and anything outside when the sun is shining brightly.
