Dr. John DeBiasio, a native of Bergen County, New Jersey, fell in love with the Philadelphia area after attending the University of Pennsylvania where he graduated summa cum laude with distinction in Biology, earning his Bachelor of Arts in Molecular and Cell Biology in 1999. He continued his education at Cornell University, College of Veterinary Medicine, where he was awarded his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2003. After graduating, he completed a rigorous one-year rotating internship in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at Oradell Animal Hospital in Paramus, New Jersey. Following his internship, he accepted a faculty position at Texas A&M University, College of Veterinary Medicine, teaching fourth year veterinary students on the Community Practice Service. He then went on to enter a three-year, Small Animal Internal Medicine Residency program at Texas A&M. Upon completion in 2008, he obtained his board certification from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
