Dr. Rebecca George received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. Afterwards, she completed a one-year small animal medicine and surgery internship at VCA Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver, CO. Then she returned to Auburn University where she completed a three-year oncology residency in 2015.
For the past six years, she has been in private practice with a multi-specialty hospital in the Triangle area. She is now very excited to be joining the Upstate Vet team in Asheville.
Her clinical interests include lymphoid cancers, osteosarcoma, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy. She also strongly believes the quality of life and palliative care are very important aspects of cancer care.
Outside of work, Dr. George enjoys spending time with her husband, son, and their two Labrador Retrievers. She also enjoys outdoor activities such as running, hiking, kayaking, backpacking, camping, and gardening.
