Dr. Aliza G. Fisse is a NY native who grew up in Jamaica Estates, Queens. She has always been fascinated by animals, nature, and science. Like many in this field, her decision to become a veterinarian was pretty much cemented by age five.
During her high school summers, Dr. Fisse volunteered with the Queens Wildlife Center in the Education Department. She attended college at the C.W. post Campus of Long Island University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology through the Honors Program, summa cum laude, in May of 2003. During those college years, she spent free time volunteering at the Alex Lewyt Veterinary Medical Center at North Shore Animal League America and at the Wildlife Health Center at the Bronx Zoo.
Dr. Fisse attended the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in Columbus from 2003-2007. She then decided to return to her roots. She worked in a small animal hospital for primary care in Queens from late 2007-2013. The goal of providing top quality medicine in a compassionate setting is of paramount importance to Dr. Fisse, who believes in nurturing the human-animal bond through outstanding personalized care.
Dr. Fisse currently lives with her cat, "Kitty," who was found by a client as a friendly stray. In her free time, Dr. Fisse loves to cook, bake, and entertain.
