Medical Director, Veterinarian
Dr. Turk-Reiger grew up in Rockaway Beach, NYC and spent her summers at her family’s dude ranch in Highland, NY. It was here that she developed her love of animals and knew at the young age of 8 that she wanted to be a veterinarian.
Dr. Turk-Reiger graduated from the University of Florida Veterinary Medicine in 1989 and quickly began working with horses and farm animals at practices in NJ. Caring for horses was what Dr. Turk-Reiger fell in love with, so for 9 years she owned a horse practice in NJ. After starting a family of her own, she decided to sell her business and continue practicing small animal medicine at area hospitals.
Dr. Turk-Reiger joined the medical team at All Creatures Great and Small in April 2017. She’s excited to provide exceptional medical care for animals such as dogs, cats, and small mammals and will also happily see some farm animals such as horses, goats and sheep.
When not practicing medicine, Dr. Turk-Reiger enjoys spending time with her husband, Jim and 3 daughters, Mikayla, Jamie, and Katie and riding her horses!
