The Doctors

Lori Bieber, DVM, President
Since her childhood, Dr. Bieber felt a special connection with animals. After graduating from The Ohio State University with a degree in veterinary medicine she began working in a local practice and eventually decided to venture out on her own. She opened South Russell Veterinary Hospital in 1999 as a sole proprietor and the practice has grown every year. Her philosophy has always been that your pets are a part of your family and they deserve the best care possible.  She lives in Chardon with her husband Dan, five dogs, four cats and two horses.

Meghan Kartley, DVM
Dr. Kartley was hired in 2012 to help meet the demands of the growing practice, and to expand the available services to large animal clients. Although her primary experience and expertise has been with large animals (alpacas, llamas, horses, and small ruminants), she has expanded into small animal care. Please join with us in welcoming Dr. Kartley to South Russell Veterinary Hospital!  She lives in Garrettsville with her husband Chris, their two children, three dogs, three horses and Daisy the goat.

Pam Bowsman, DVM

Dr. Bowsman practices small animal veterinary medicine and has more than 20 years of experience. Dr. Bowsman and Dr. Bieber worked together at another local veterinary hospital. After Dr. Bieber opened SRVH, Dr. Bowsman joined the team in July 2003.  She lives in Painesville with her husband Jeff, two daughters, two dogs and four cats.
