Alexander E. Klein
Dr. Alex Klein grew up in Great Neck, New York with animal-loving parents. As a child, he was a puppy walker for Seeing Eyes for the Blind and endured the continual cycle of attaching to and separating from deliciously adorable Lab puppies. He served as a volunteer EMT/fireman during his high school and college years and always had an interest in medicine, but was also attracted to technology. He graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in 1995. After a dozen years in the fast-paced corporate world, Alex decided to face the daunting and exciting challenge of transforming his career. He attended CCNY at night in order to complete post-baccalaureate coursework and worked on an upstate farm, ultimately leading to his acceptance into Cornell University Veterinary School. Alex has since worked in private practice and animal rescue/shelter facilities, most recently as a staff surgeon and veterinary associate at North Shore Animal League. Alex lives in Windsor Terrace with his wife Lisa, his son Noam and their three cats.
