Our Doctors


Dr. David Kovalik:

Dr. Kovalik's love of animals began with his collies growing up. After receiving degrees in English and Eastern Classics in college, Dr. Kovalik attended veterinary school at The Ohio State University. Since graduating, Dr. Kovalik attended an internship in Rochester,  NY, practiced emergency medicine in Bangor, Maine, and practiced general medicine in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and northern Virginia. Throughout his career, his commitment to service work has lead him to routinely volunteer for the Humane Society, World Vets, and GeoVets. Dr. Kovalik is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Arizona Veterinary Medical Veterinary Association, and a board member of GeoVets. 

When he's not working, Dr. Kovalik loves to read, study history, and spend time with his family - his wife Barb, and his two rescue pets - a fluffy food-loving cat named Charlie, and an overly-enthusiastic miniature dachshund named Marley.  


Dr. Chelsey Brown:

Dr. Brown grew up in the Wild Wild West, known by locals as Cottonwood, Arizona, where the horses and toads keep company in people's backyards.  Dr. Brown quickly found herself to be her family's personal animal whisperer and advocated for all animals great and small while working as a technician at Sedona Animal Clinic.  After earning a bachelor's degree in biology at Northern Arizona University and her veterinary degree from Colorado State University, Dr. Brown returned to work at the clinic as a veterinarian.  She has been happily serving the cats and dogs of Sedona (and their people) ever since. 

Dr. Brown is a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist for cats, dogs and horses. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Arizona Veterinary Medical Veterinary Association. 

In her free time, Dr. Brown surrounds herself with animals (much to the horror of her husband Luke, a teacher who, sadly, grew up with only one dog) and enjoys the company of two guinea pigs, two parakeets, two cats, two dogs, and ten chickens (who have names that range from Albird Birdstein to Dostoevsky--a Russian breed).  She also likes gardening (though her brother has solicited a complaint to Plant Protective Services, due to her trying to keep flowers and chickens in the same general area).
