Dr. Bryan Gelman

Owner / Veterinarian

Bryan Gelman was born and raised outside New York City. He attended Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

Following graduation, he completed a small animal medicine and surgical internship at Oradell Animal Hospital in New Jersey. For the next five years, he lived in Manhattan and worked as an emergency doctor at the Animal Medical Center, where he oversaw one of the busiest emergency rooms in the country. After meeting his wife, a native Torontonian, in New York City, they moved back to Toronto in 2014. Over the last five years, Bryan worked as a staff doctor at McGilvray Veterinary Hospital, a general practice located in North York.

Bryan lives in mid-town Toronto with his wife, young son, new baby daughter and their very energetic Labradoodle, Gus. Bryan is an avid reader of history and astronomy. When not chasing after his toddler and dog, he loves playing and watching all things sports.

Steph D.

Steph joins the YSC team with over 10 years of experience in the veterinary field. Starting off as an animal care attendant in 2007, she then went on to become a Registered Veterinary Technician through Seneca College in 2011. Since graduating and working as an RVT in a few different practices in the GTA, Steph found her passion in client care. She can’t wait to greet you and your furry companion when you walk through the front door and hopes to make your visits with us as stress-free and friendly as possible – you’ll recognize her by her bright colored hair, big smile, and a handful of treats at the ready.

When not at the clinic, Steph loves to travel, and her & her husband, Erik, are avid moviegoers! In her spare time, she enjoys reading, dabbles in the arts, and is also a big fan of video games, comic books, and science fiction. At home, they have a ridiculous Border Collie mix named Ellie (short for Mozzarella!) and two very bossy cats named Ty & Oliver that run the household.

Mia C.

Mia is an RVT who graduated from the Seneca Veterinary Technician Program in 2015. Over the past few years, she has enjoyed a fulfilling career as a technician working in collaboration with other professionals in clinics around Toronto. Mia is also the proud mom to Halo, a precious Coton de Tulear, who literally stops traffic with her sass! Mia relishes in the outdoors and can be found hiking and cycling the interconnected bike path in the GTA, after which, you will most likely find her at one of the many esteemed restaurants of Toronto (she is a self-proclaimed foodie.) She is also a huge fan of the Toronto Raptors and would be awe-struck if she was ever in the same room as Kyle Lowry, their All-Star point guard. Mia is elated to be a part of the YSC vet team and looks forward to meeting you and your pets soon!

Elise joined the YSC team in May 2019 following her graduation as a veterinary technician from Seneca College. Her passion and love for all animals are what drove her to become a veterinary technician and she is excited to finally be able to pursue her dream. She enjoys the one-on-one interactions with each owner and developing a unique relationship with each pet that we pride ourselves on here at YSC vet. Pictured here with Elise is Sam, a husky mix she adopted from school, who has been keeping her busy. In her spare time, Elise enjoys going on hikes with Sam, horseback riding, gardening, and spending time with her friends and family.
