Gregory A. Prisinzano, DVM
Owner/Operator of Tulsa General Veterinary Hospital
Dr. Gregory Prisinzano is unique in that he has been single-minded about being a veterinarian his entire life. This decision sprang from his innate love for animals. His official career began at the age of 16, working as a kennel assistant at Chimney Hills Veterinary Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He continued as a veterinary assistant while attending school. While studying at Oklahoma State University Dr. P. (as he is affectionately known by his clients) accepted a preceptorship at Marine Life in Louisiana where he worked with marine animals and aided in the rescue and care of a giant Loggerhead turtle. In 1991 he graduated from Oklahoma State University with his doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. After working briefly in North Carolina he was happy to return to his hometown of Tulsa and a job as a veterinarian back where he started at Chimney Hills. He continued perfecting his skills for the next 17 years. In 2012 Dr. P. realized his dream and broke ground on a hospital of his own. He personally designed the hospital with the idea that a more home-like environment would mean less stress on both the client and his furry patients. Dr. P. and his wife Laura, a retired school teacher, participated in every aspect of the design of the hospital as it was being built. Laura personally decorated the facility with comfy furniture and home interiors. Behind the scenes, Dr. P. ensured the installation of state of the art equipment in veterinary care. Our doors have been opened since January 28, 2013. Laura continues to be a part of the clinic organizing, planning, and implementing many of the promotional parties. Dr. P. and Laura have two children Mia and Gan, who both attend Jenks Public Schools, and five furry children, Sir Percival (tuxedo tomcat), Ashley (gray Ragdoll), George (ginger tabby), Stella (rescue mutt), and Theodore Alexander (red guinea-pig). Dr. P., his family, and his staff invite you and your family to join us for a revolutionary experience in veterinary medicine at Tulsa General Veterinary Hospital.
