Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Jacob Wasserman

Meet Dr. Wasserman, a dynamic force behind PetHealth Cornelius! Hailing from the vibrant city near Cincinnati, Ohio, Dr. Wasserman's journey began at Xavier University, where he initially explored the world of accounting before following his passion for natural sciences. Graduating with flying colors from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013, he embarked on a mission to make a pawsitive impact on the world.

Having left his mark in the Cincinnati area, Dr. Wasserman is now ready for an exciting new chapter with the amazing team at PetHealth UrgentCare. The prospect of heading south and joining forces with passionate professionals has him thrilled and ready for the next adventure.

On a personal note, Dr. Wasserman's heart led him to Cornelius, where his wife Allie's family resides. The chance to be closer to family was simply irresistible, making this move a heartfelt choice. Outside the clinic, you'll find Dr. Wasserman immersed in the joy of family time with his wife, four delightful children, and their lovable pup, Lily. Despite the aloof charm of his two feline companions, Meejy and Terra, Dr. Wasserman cherishes every moment with his furry friends.

Dr. Wasserman's passion for veterinary medicine is centered around promoting the human-animal bond and helping pets when they have urgent care needs, bringing a wealth of expertise to PetHealth Cornelius. Beyond the clinic, he's a music enthusiast, both in listening and playing, and often finds solace in tackling various home improvement projects. Dr. Wasserman is not just a veterinarian; he's a dedicated family person, a music aficionado, and a skilled handyman, making him a truly well-rounded and upbeat addition to the PetHealth Cornelius family
