Bell Ridge Animal Hospital, Boarding & Grooming - Phoenix

The Bell Ridge Animal Hospital, Boarding & Grooming team consists of five veterinarians, an office manager, and about ten support staff that are dedicated to welcome you and make your pet’s health needs our top priority. Our veterinarians are licensed to practice in Arizona and have over 40 years of experience combined. This helps to ensure your pet will benefit from our experience, education, and up to date veterinary care and medicine. Having three doctors on staff allows us to discuss cases and share our knowledge on a daily basis. We also are able to be fully staffed 6 days a week, so we can see you and your pet when it best fits your schedule and needs. Our staff feels that communication and continuing education is important to ensure the best care to every client and their pet. We are dedicated to providing exceptional service, which is one of our core values, and allows us to help you make the best health care decisions for your pet. All of our staff members are pet owners, so we understand the important role your pet plays in your family.

Dr. Jennifer Starkel

I'm from a small town in Connecticut. I received my Bachelor of Animal Science from the University of New Hampshire in 2001, then my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Missouri in 2005. I enjoy spending free time with my husband and our two energetic sons, as well as our four-legged furry babies. We also like to visit family and friends in the Midwest and New England when we can. When I can find some alone time, I love to read and run (aside from chasing around those energetic boys).

Dr. Lydia Bolduc

I am originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I received my bachelor's degree in Zoology from the University of Maine in 2013. From there, I moved to Arizona to pursue a master’s degree in Biomedical Science before attending veterinary school as a part of the inaugural class of Midwestern University. I received my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2018. My clinical interests include nutrition, dermatology, and arthritis management. When I’m not at the hospital, I love cooking, camping, craft beer, and spending time with my husband, Jordan, Pitbull mix, Daja, and 5 cats.

Dr. Nicole Johnson

I grew up in Simi Valley, California, and studied at California Lutheran University, receiving my undergraduate degree in 2015. I continued my education at Midwestern University and graduated with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2019. Before attending veterinary school, I was a veterinary assistant and technician for 4 years at a clinic in California. My clinical interests include preventative medicine and dentistry - with plans on getting certified in acupuncture in the future! I live with my husband, and we recently welcomed our first baby boy! When outside of work, you can catch me watching football (Go Saints!), riding horses, and spending quality time with my family and our 2 dogs and 3 cats!
