Marissa Steinberg, DVM
I was born in Ontario Canada and yes, you can still hear my Canadian accent! I grew up here in the Valley of the Sun, and most pictures from my childhood show me reaching for or posing with animals. My desire to care for their well-being has been a constant and natural progression throughout my life. I love what I do, and have special interest in preventive medicine, dentistry, sharpei medicine, geriatric medicine and delivering a fear-free experience to our patients (& clients).
I graduated from the University of Arizona (Beardown!) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Veterinary Science. I then fulfilled my dream of moving back to Canada to attend veterinary school at the University of Prince Edward Island and, yes, I did meet Anne of Green Gables while earning my DVM degree! After graduation, I moved to Alberta to join a mixed animal practice and later moved back to Arizona to be closer to my family.
When I’m not working, my husband and I are enjoying the world of parenting. I can also be found on various hiking trails with the pups, polishing my country two-stepping moves or planning the next adventure for my newest interest… scuba diving!
I love working with our talented and compassionate team at FVC, and I look forward to meeting you and providing a helping hand to you and your pets!
