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:

Growing up in Cottonwood, Dr. Brown knew early on she loved animals and wanted to help them. This led her to Sedona Animal Clinic, where she worked as a veterinary assistant throughout high school and college. She became passionate about the profound effect veterinary medicine could have on the animals we love. To this end, she earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Northern Arizona University in 2006 and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University in 2011. She is now thrilled to be reunited with the Sedona Animal Clinic team as a veterinarian.

Although Chelsey enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, she has a passion for internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, acupuncture and pain management. She 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, Chelsey enjoys exploring Sedona’s hiking trails, playing the piano and learning the guitar (a work in progress!). She also enjoys spending time with her husband Luke, and furry family (a playful Cocker Spaniel, Howie, and two rambunctious cats, Meutzin and Franklin).
