paw Team Spotlight
Lee Lipsitz
DVM, PhD Medical Director

Dr. Lee Lipsitz earned her DVM degree from Michigan State University in 1996. While at MSU, she also received a MS and PhD in the field of neurotoxicology. Although she planned to stay in academia and teach future veterinarians, she just couldn't give up the day-to-day satisfaction of working in a private practice.

Although originally a New Yorker, Dr. Lipsitz moved from Michigan to Connecticut in 2002 and has been with VCA Baybrook Animal Hospital since then. She loves all aspects of the practice but especially loves dentistry, surgery and ultrasound.

Dr. Lipsitz has two sons and a Golden Retriever named Fatty McButterpants. In her spare time, she loves to garden, read anything and train for powerlifting competitions.
