Dr. Miccio is our Medical Director and she has been working at All Creatures for over 29 years. In her words Dr Miccio says: Many people dream of becoming a veterinarian, I was always driven to become one. All of my focus my entire life has gone towards achieving my determined goal of becoming a vet.
My earliest memory is when I was 4 years old, I was found lost and crying, I was brought to a local police station. My mom had turned away for a moment and somehow I opened the garden gate and chased a cat several blocks away.
Dr. Rachleff joined All Creatures in April of 2016. Dr. Rachleff grew up on Long Island and always had a menagerie of cats and dogs. During the summers, he would always take care of the classroom pets, no matter what species. Even at a young age, he wanted to be a veterinarian, but he was drawn to research science as he got older. After several years doing biomedical research, Dr Rachleff decided to pursue his first love, taking care of animals, and started working at a veterinary hospital as an assistant.
From there, he went on to graduate from the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine in 2012. He previously practiced in New York City and recently relocated to Rockland County with his wife Laura, after the birth of their first son. They share their home with a Boston Terrier, Tiki (named after all time great Giants running back Tiki Barber) and a rescued Scottish Fold cat named Mungo. He is very excited to meet all of the wonderful owners and pets who visit All Creatures! Dr. Rachleff has a special interest in internal medicine and in furry and scaly exotics.
Dr. Piehler joined All Creatures Great and Small in October 2018.
As a child Dr. Piehler would spend a great amount of time visiting her Uncle. She says; he always had dogs and cats for me to play with and so I wanted one. My mom adopted 2 cats from him and I was hooked. I was able to learn first hand how amazing animals are and how they enrich our lives. I worked as a veterinary technician and a receptionist at nearby animal hospitals, giving me a great understanding of the profession.
My cat Lou currently claims most of my free time. He is one of the smartest cats. Lou has learned to practice agility in my apartment and performs many tricks similar to what a dog would show you. In addition to spending time with Lou I love to crochet. I make some pretty great stuffed animals.
For many, pets are our families so I look forward to providing your pet with the best care we can.
Dr. Piehler graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts in 2016. She has a large interest in surgery and behavior.
