Dr. Kate Brown

Veterinarian, Medical Director

Dr. Kate Brown is a native of metro Atlanta. After working for an exotics veterinarian as an assistant in high school, she decided to become a veterinarian. She attended the University of Georgia where she received her bachelor's degree in Biological Science and, later, her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Gooooooo Dawgs! Dr. Brown has a special interest in preventative care, dentistry and companion exotic animal care. When she's not here at the hospital, Dr. Brown enjoys trail running, knitting and spending time with her husband, new baby boy, domestic short-haired cat Bethany and dog Wicket. Dr. Brown would love to see all of your pets- scaled, feathered or furred!

Aaron Caldwell

Prior to moving into practice management, Aaron spent the past 14 years working in veterinary medicine as a veterinary technician. Originally from Miami, he has spent most of his years working with pets that need it the most by assisting in emergency veterinary hospitals, feline specific hospitals and at Fulton County Animal Services...one of the busiest animal shelters in the country! Aaron currently resides in Dallas, Ga with his longtime girlfriend and three dogs -- Rilee, Bowser, and an old pug named Roxie. He also has a three-legged cat named Fiesty, two turtles and seven chickens, as well as many beehives. During his free time, Aaron can be found under the hood of his cars, in the kitchen making a delicious dish or out on the patio slow smoking some barbecue. Aaron is confident that the Animal Hospital of Dunwoody Village can provide the apex of veterinary care and looks forward to leading the team into the future.
