Dr.Adrianna ArcuriMS, VMD
Dr. Arcuri studied medicine from the very start of her college years. She pursued a Masters in Psychology from the Hahnemann University but soon after she discovered her calling was to help animals. Dr. Arcuri always had a love for cats so it wasn't hard for her to decide to focus on feline medicine after meeting her husband, Dr. Richter, at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Arcuri especially loves the challenge of surgery and her patience and diligence always yields the best recovery for our patients. She keeps up-to-date with the most current surgical care so her patients heal and recover from surgery quickly. Her specific protocols also enable her to make sure her patients are good surgical candidates.
Photography is a favorite hobby of Dr. Arcuri's and she enjoys taking pictures of her kids, Sarah and Lucy. There are many great pictures of her girls horseback riding and of the family in Disney World around her office. She is also a great cook and makes the best holiday cookies!
