Dr. Baez is passionate about educating families about their pet’s cancer diagnosis so that treatment decisions can be created that optimize the pet’s quality of life first and foremost, while also potentially allowing the family to have more time with their beloved family member. She has authored and co-authored many publications and attends conferences to stay on the cutting edge of veterinary therapy available to her patients.
When not working, Dr. Baez enjoys horseback riding, exercising, traveling and spending time with her family which consists of her husband, who is also a veterinarian, her two daughters, and her three dogs: a Golden Retriever named Charlotte, a French Bulldog named Vivi, and an Italian Greyhound named Giorgio, with whom she is exploring the canine sport of Agility.
