The practice is staffed with three veterinarians---Dr. Alexandra Wilson, Dr. Anthony Pilny (who is a Board Certified Avian Specialist), and Dr. Jessica Grodio (who has her PhD from Cornell in Comparative Biomedical Sciences, for which she studied Mycoplasma gallisepticum, a bacterial species that causes disease in finches and has greatly impacted wild bird populations across the country). The hospital also has a full support staff of office staff and veterinary nurses and assistants. Office Hours: M-Su: 9:00am-7:00pm
Jessica L. Grodio, DVM DABVP (Avian)

Jessica Grodio, DVM, PhD, ABVP (Avian) began work with us in early 2016. She attended prestigious Cornell University where she obtained a BS in Biological Sciences as well as her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Loving research, academia, and avian medicine, Dr. Grodio also earned a PhD from Cornell in Comparative Biomedical Sciences, for which she studied Mycoplasma gallisepticum, a bacterial species that causes disease in finches and has greatly impacted wild bird populations across the country. After receiving her DVM degree, Dr. Grodio worked with avian and exotic animal patients at Cornell’s exotic pet service. She then decided to pursue ABVP board certification in avian medicine and was accepted to a rigorous two-year residency in avian/exotic medicine and surgery at South Wilton Veterinary Group in Wilton, CT. While studying for her board exams, she worked in the avian and exotic pet service at The Animal Medical Center in NYC and finally found her home with us!
