Dr. Christine Cichra

I have been a practicing veterinarian for 13 years! Where has the time gone?! I absolutely love what I do! I love teaching Moms and Dads about how to give their pet a more natural lifestyle. Treating animals with alternative therapies is my passion.

My husband Scott and I have three beautiful daughters. They keep us very busy! Besides working with animals, I enjoy horseback riding and love taking care of our small farm here in Oviedo, FL. I also have a passion for photography and travel. I enjoy spending time with my family when I am not in the clinic.

Dr. Alexandra Azcona-Velasquez

Hello! I am Dr. Alexandra Azcona-Velasquez. I have always had a great passion for caring for animals. I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry at the University of Central Florida in 2015. During that time I began shadowing Dr. Cichra. She showed me the value of alternative medicine in addition to traditional treatments. After completing my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at Midwestern University in Arizona, I returned to Florida to continue my education at the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.

I have 4 cats, 2 dogs and 1 toddler. My goal as your veterinarian is to care for your furry family members as if they were my own. On my free time I love going horseback riding and spending time with my crazy son. I look forward to getting to know you and care for your pets large and small.
