Dr. Marla Lucy-Lender joined the staff of Adana Veterinary Clinic in September 2018. She graduated from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004, and is joining Adana with 14 years of experience in NYS. She is an experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate veterinarian, who, like Dr. Wildenstein, grew up breathing veterinary medicine, as both had fathers who were practicing veterinarians.
Dr. Lucy-Lender’s veterinary interests include small companion animal preventative care, medicine, dentistry, and surgery. Her patients include not only dogs and cats, she also takes a special interest in and has years of experience in most exotics: Birds of all colors and sizes, rabbits, rodents, ferrets, hedgehogs, sugar gliders, snakes and reptiles.
Dr. Lucy-Lender enjoys the process of developing a relationship with her clients and patients, having the opportunity to collaborate with her clients in providing excellent care for their companions. She completed Fear Free Certification in 2017 and strives to make her patients’ visits as pleasant as possible.
When not at the veterinary hospital, Dr. Lucy-Lender enjoys spending time with her family, practicing aikido, hiking and other outdoor adventures.
