Lake Brandt Veterinary Hospital has a friendly, compassionate, professional team which is spearheaded by our founder, Dr. Lofgren. Below are our three doctors with a short bio of each.
Dr. Jim Lofgren earned his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees from The Ohio State University, graduating in 1990.
His special interests include surgery (especially orthopedic), geriatrics and nutrition. Dr. Jim also works with Carolina Basset Hound Rescue, and the Greensboro Police Canine Unit.
Dr. Jim’s hobbies include boating, camping, fishing, and spending time with his son, Jonathan, as well as his two dogs and two cats.
Dr. Mark Brigham grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland, received a B.S. in Animal Science at the University of Maryland, and earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida in 1981.
Professionally, Dr. Mark likes urgent care triage, preventative medical care, challenging internal medicine cases and soft tissue surgery.
Dr. Mark is married to his high school sweetheart, Kathy, and they have two adult children. He enjoys outdoor activities with his family, especially fishing and hiking.
Dr. Tina Becker was born and raised in Indiana. She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Purdue University in 1987.
She enjoys all areas of veterinary medicine and has a special interest in medicine- and surgery-alternative therapy. She received her acupuncture certification in 2001 from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.
Dr. Becker lives with her husband, David, three dogs, and four cats. She enjoys spending time with her family (3 adult children), running, riding her horse, and spending time at the coast.
I highly recommend Lake Brandt Veterinary Hospital. All the staff has always been amazing. All of the Doctors are great but our favorite is Dr. Becker. She is the best. Very professional, knowledgeable and personable! Goes above and beyond. If she practiced medicine for humans we would definitely choose Dr. Becker. Emergencies, House Calls, Best Office, Routine Visits, recommend for all!
This place is wonderful! The staff are always so pleasant and friendly. The veterinarians are wonderful! They take time to explain everything and take their time making sure all of your questions are answered. In what could be a very stressful situation, they make it pleasurable!
