Alexander Miller, DVM
Associate Veterinarian, AVBP Certified in Feline & Canine Medicine
Dr. Miller was raised in Queens, New York. His family always shared a love for animals, and cats and dogs were always cherished companions in their household growing up. Dr. Miller received his doctorate of veterinary medicine from Cornell University in 1969 before going on to practice at Manhattan Vet and North Shore Animal Hospital. He very much enjoys meeting clients with their pets, and could never choose between cats and dogs; He loves both! Dr. Miller’s wife is allergic to pets, so he doesn’t have any of his own at home — which makes his time with your pets even more precious. Still, his wife Lucy has supported his career for 43 years. Dr. Miller enjoys hiking, playing poker, and enjoying good food. His guilty pleasure is chocolate.

Sasha Hilchuck, VMD
Dr. Sasha Hilchuck grew up in Greenwich Village, New York City. Sasha’s childhood pets included a sweet little dog named Foxy, who looked just like a fox, and pair of Siamese cats who gave birth to a litter of kittens in her family’s apartment. When Dr. Hilchuck was seven years old, she had the privilege of assisting one of her dad’s friends — a veterinarian — with surgery. From that point forward, she knew she wanted to be a veterinarian.

Dr. Hilchuck shares her home with her wonderful husband (who she inherited 10 grandchildren from!). She loves going on group family vacations, eating out at restaurants, and spending time at the beach. Tik Tok is her guiltiest pleasure.
