Dr. Emily Baldwin grew up in Gillette, Wyoming, where she discovered that she wanted to be a veterinarian at a very young age. She attended Iowa State University for undergrad and graduated from Colorado State University with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2014.
Dr. Baldwin moved to Phoenix from Colorado Springs, CO where her husband was stationed with the US Army and where she spent her first three years practicing at a small animal hospital. From Colorado, the Baldwins brought with them their two rescue golden retrievers, Shadow and Ely, and Wilbur the Wildcat, an orange and white tabby.
Emily is passionate about preventative care including dentistry, and has particular interests in soft tissue surgery, oncology, and internal medicine. In her free time, she loves traveling, singing, hiking, backpacking, cooking, running, yoga, and gardening. You can frequently find the Baldwins curled up on the couch with the dogs after a long day.

Growing up in a Cleveland, Ohio, all of my neighbors knew which door to knock on when an animal issue came up. Whether it was rounding up animals to bring to the vet, an emergent pet-sitting need and even trapping and releasing the raccoon that made its home under the deck - it seemed no job was too big. As time passed, I realized that a career didn’t have to be a drag if I always did something that I loved. I have never looked back.
One of the little secrets about our profession is the bond that develops with the pets and owners. My career can be a wild ride of experiences and emotions, but at the end of the day, I frequently find myself grinning because our team has helped the lives of our patients.
Two aspects of my profession come to the top of my mind when people ask what I like best about my job - cases that are particularly challenging and require research and learning, and the relationships that I have developed during my years of practicing.
During my spare time I enjoy spending QT with the family, traveling, photography and sports. Our family has a goal to visit one new national park every year. Sunday nights at the Ware house mostly involves a mass of people, pets and pizza squished on the couch watching a movie.
Dr. Evan Ware studied for his undergraduate degree at The Ohio State University in microbiology and received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!)

I am originally from Costa Rica and I earned my veterinary degree from Escuela de Medicina y Cirugia Veterinaria San Francisco de Asis in my home country. I became accredited through the ECFVG program in order to practice veterinary medicine in the United States. Growing up I wasn’t as lucky as other people and did not have any pets until my teenage years when I acquired an iguana and two turtles as a present. I became fascinated with these creatures and I fell in love with animals in general, which fueled my interest in this wonderful world of veterinary medicine. Nowadays, I enjoy seeing these exotic animals in their natural habitats, especially every time I have the opportunity to visit my country. I currently enjoy work exclusively with dogs and cats. I love the fact that I can be part of the human-animal bond and that I can help both pets and their families. My areas of interest include surgery and ultrasonography. I have two cats, Margarita, a gray longhair from Arizona and Toñita, an orange shorthair from Costa Rica. During my leisure time I love reading, gardening, doing puzzles, dancing, biking, and yoga.
