Joan Burkhart, DVM

Dr. Joan Burkhart began her veterinary career at North Center Animal Hospital immediately upon graduation from school in 1988. The neighborhood, Lake Michigan, and the Cubs drew her to the practice. Dr. Burkhart is particularly interested in soft tissue surgery and dentistry. Although she really enjoys seeing her patients and their families for preventative care, she feels that there is nothing more gratifying than seeing a pet through a successful recovery from an illness or injury.
When she’s not at NCAH, she’s busy spending time with her two teenagers, her husband Jim, and their Labrador Ruby and cat Carmela.
