Dr. Cristina A. Maristany was born and raised in Miami, Florida.

Her love for animals and her thirst for knowledge began when she was a young client at Knowles Animal Clinics and was later solidified when she worked as a Knowles technician during her high school years. She studied biology at the University of Miami and later obtained her veterinary degree from the University of Florida. Dr. Maristany also studied under Dr. Xie at the Chi Institute to become a certified veterinary acupuncturist.

Dr. Maristany is a member of the AVMA, FVMA and is certified with the USDA, enabling her to authorize animal health certificates for travel needs. Her interests include small animal acupuncture, medicine and behavior.
