Dr. Theresa Bednar is our Medical Director and a General Practitioner who has been with Rock Road Animal Hospital since 1991 when she started as a veterinary assistant and then as a veterinarian in 1998."I can't remember a time when I didn't want to be a veterinarian," she says, "but when I started working here as a veterinary assistant it helped me see that this is exactly what I should be doing. I also remember my first day here as a veterinarian. I was completely terrified and completely excited and exhilarated all at the same time. I loved it."For her undergraduate studies Dr. Bednar attended Northeast Missouri State University (now Truman State) where she majored in Pre-Veterinary Science. In 1994, she enrolled in the University of Missouri - Columbia College of Veterinary Medicine and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1998.
