Cassie Quest, DVM — Chief of Staff
Dr. Cassie Quest, our Chief of Staff, graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine with honors in 2008. She has enjoyed working in a small animal practice since that time and found a desire to enter the world of exclusive feline medicine in 2015. Dr. Quest trained under a board-certified feline medicine specialist in Ormond Beach, but was eager to return to central Florida, where she soon found and fell in love with the Cat Hospital of Orlando. She finds working with cats challenging and rewarding. Dr. Quest especially enjoys focusing on stress-free visit, critical and emergency cases, “feisty“ felines, general surgery and dentistry.
Having her own three rescue cats at home, Freddy, Frogger and Chugs, she understands how unique each cat is and tries to tailor their vet experience to every individual. Dr. Quest also shares her home with her dog, Lily, and her husband, Jason. In her free time, she enjoys dance, fitness, yoga, hiking, kayaking, or anything outdoors.
