Dr. Melissa Lehman


Dr. Lehman graduated summa cum laude with honors from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. She began working with Banfield in Virginia after graduation, and moved to Hoover in June 2018 with her husband for his anesthesiology residency at UAB. While Dr. Lehman enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, she is especially interested in soft tissue surgery, exotic animal medicine, and dermatology. Her preventive care focus is being a strong proponent for spaying and neutering, which can prevent a multitude of health issues for pets and counters pet overpopulation. Dr. Lehman and her husband have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Ballberts that they enjoy taking for walks around their neighborhood and exploring local hiking trails together. She has just taken up learning Spanish as well, and is hoping to become fluent by 2020!
