After studying anthropology at the University of Miami, Dr. Brian Grossi began his first career in primatology at the Duke University Primate Center as a lemur caretaker. He later returned to Florida to become the first curator of the Lemur Conservation Foundation-Myakka Reserve (LCF) and it was through his experience at the LCF that he made his decision to become a veterinarian. While completing his pre-requisite coursework for veterinary school he gained valuable experience working at a local emergency hospital and a cat only hospital. Following graduation from the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012, he worked as an associate veterinarian at a companion animal hospital in Durham before joining Animal Hospital of Peak Plaza. Along with treating cats and dogs, Dr. Grossi also enjoys treating pocket pets and other small mammals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and hamsters.
Dr. Grossi has special interest in dentistry, pain management, and exotic animal medicine. He shares his Durham home with a rescue greyhound named Seymour, a herd of cats, and a collection of aquariums. In his spare time he enjoys cooking, concerts, and the company of great friends.
