Leana Galdjian, DVM
My passion for animals has been unwavering since childhood. Having a DVM after my name is the culmination of a dream, years of study and determination. I began working for Dr. Dana Bleifer as a veterinary technician in January of 2000. She has been my mentor since I shared my dream. Although my degree is recent, I began soaking up every bit of knowledge offered throughout the year. Surgery is a primary interest of mine. Not surprising, I have a special interest in reproduction as well, obviously something I acquired from Dr. Bleifer. I come to Rose City Veterinary Hospital with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree from St. George’s University, Grenada (Class of 2011). My desire is to make the lives of animals and their owners as wonderful as possible with solid care and an understanding ear. I believe listening is a practiced skill, which is a valuable tool that I use when treating my patients. All communication between the client and myself is to provide the very best care for my patient.

Have been taking my cats to RCVH for years. The Vets and office staff have always been great. My current Vet Dr. Brickman is exceptional: she took over from my previous Vet who moved away. She is very patient and listens to my concerns regarding my elderly male cat. She is a real professional.
