Dr. Lauren Bernstein is a graduate of University College Dublin School of Veterinary Medicine and joined Preston Road Animal Hospital in 2013.  Having studied overseas for several years, Dr. Bernstein values the importance of communication, a tool she has enjoyed integrating into clinical practice.  Before joining the Preston Road family, Dr. Bernstein completed several externships in anesthesia, public health, small and large animal medicine and surgery, and exotic animal medicine.  Her special interests include veterinary public health and pain management.

Although she is a New Jersey native, Dr. Bernstein attended high school and college in Tennessee.  She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science before continuing her education at University College Dublin, where she graduated with honors.

When not helping pets at work, Dr. Bernstein enjoys yoga, volunteering with a therapeutic equestrian program, and snuggling with her rescue cat, Father Ted (affectionately named after a famous Irish TV comedy).
