Michael J. Williams, D.V.M.

Dr. Williams has been practicing veterinary medicine for over 10 years.  He especially has a love for Emergency Critical Care Medicine.  His journey into veterinary medicine started at a young age when he worked at his local animal clinic in Connecticut as a kennel attendant.  He eagerly earned his way up to being a veterinary technician, reassuring his calling into joining the veterinary world.  He earned his B.S. at the University of Massachusetts in 1998, graduating Cum Laude.  He then continued his education at Tuskegee University where he graduated from the School of Veterinary Medicine in 2003.  Dr. Williams has practiced in Alabama, Georgia and throughout South Florida.  He is a member of the AVMA and the Emergency Critical Care Society.  When he's not working (which is rare), he enjoys running, biking, swimming, mountain climbing and running around after his 2 toddlers.  In addition to his 2 toddlers, he has a French Bulldog-"Louie" who you may get to meet when you visit the clinic. 

Raz Peress, D.V.M.

Born in Israel,  Dr. Peress moved to the U.S. where he received his B.S. in Biology from Florida International University.  He then continued his education at the Veterinary University in the Czech Republic where he later graduated. While in school, he participated in an Externship in Fes, Morocco at the American Fondouk Clinic.  After graduating he returned to Israel to practice and become the Medical Manager of the only 24 hour clinic in Jerusalem, Israel.  While working there, he developed a special interest in surgery. His goal is to be Board certified in Surgery, with a fellowship in Orthopedic Surgery. In his free time he enjoys rock climbing, surfing, painting, and the occasional snowboarding. He has two pets which have been adopted "in the line of duty", a homeless dog with a broken leg "Barak" and a street cat with a paralyzed leg "Nelly".
