  • Suzanne Tate, DVM

    Veterinarian / Owner / Hospital Manager
    Suzanne Tate, DVM, graduated from veterinary school at Michigan State University in 1990. Sue also received her Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University. Directly after graduating, Sue began working at DePorre Veterinary Hospital. In 1999, Sue moved over to Troy Veterinary Hospital in the dual role of hospital manager and veterinarian. In May of 2008, Sue purchased the hospital from the DePorre's and became  Troy Veterinary Hospital's new Practice Manager.

    Sue remembers wanting to be a vet since the age of eight. She always had a keen desire to help people be responsible pet owners. As a young owner of pocket pets such as mice, rats, and guinea pigs, Sue found that most vets at that time didn't know much about them. This motivated Sue, in veterinary school, to take a special interest and additional classes in pocket pets. One of the things she finds most rewarding about her job is helping people to really understand their pet's problem and treatment options.

    Sue's genuine concern for the health and welfare of every pet that comes through our doors, coupled with her kindness and patience in working with them, contribute to the high standard of animal care set at Troy Veterinary Hospital.

    Sue shares her home with an Aussie-mix dog named Mobil. Due to Mobil's severe epilepsy and Sue's long work days, Mobil accompanies Sue to work every day.

    Gourmet cooking, cross-country skiing, gardening, home improvements, and collecting veterinary antiques are some of Sue's other pleasures.

  • Linda Williams

    Receptionist
    Linda Williams, our head receptionist, has been greeting Troy Veterinary Hospital's clients and pets since 1989, even before the DePorre family purchased the hospital from its original doctors. Linda's gift is working with people. She loves being able to recognize your voice over the phone and is dedicated to establishing good relationships with our clients and their pets. Being patient and kind are two qualities Linda finds essential to doing her job well.

    Over her long career as a Veterinary Receptionist, Linda has admitted animals that have swallowed all kinds of unusual items ranging from coins to pull-tabs. But the most memorable incident she recalls involved a client who was mystified by a rug in his basement that appeared to be shrinking daily, only to find out it was inside his dog's stomach after exploratory surgery was performed. The dog went home several pounds lighter, and then the client paid for the cost of the surgery exclusively in coins. It took Linda quite some time to put all those coins in holders that day!

    Linda and her husband Don have four children and eight grandchildren. In addition to spending time with her grandchildren, Linda loves to cook, bake, garden, and mow the grass.
