Dr. Jordan Eizenberg Weinger, DVM
Dr. Jordan grew up in South Florida. He earned his BS in zoology at the University of Wisconsin. He grew up surrounded by dogs, cats and birds and knew from an early age that he wanted to become a veterinarian. Naturally, after college, he headed to St. George’s University in the West Indies to attend veterinary school. There he met his future husband and honed his craft in veterinary medicine. After spending his clinical year at Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Jordan graduated and began to sharpen his skills in companion animal medicine.
Veterinary Medicine has changed drastically in recent years to include stress reducing, fear free, species specific handling techniques. Dr. Jordan’s dream is to teach and show his community how we can truly help our furry friends and ensure they are well taken care of. His goal is to see each of his patients happy and comfortable when coming to see him. As such, he has designed an entire hospital to accommodate for such an aspiration.
Dr. Jordan has a special interest in small animal medicine and surgery. He is also an active member of the AVMA, FVMA and is USDA accredited. During his time away from the clinic, he enjoys cooking and exploring Miami. But most of all he enjoys spending time with his husband Ori and cat Mitzi.
Dr. Ori Eizenberg Weinger, DVM
Dr. Ori always knew he wanted to be a veterinarian. Even while growing up he would dedicate his weekends to work at his parents’ friends’ pet store. Once, he even lied about his age (🤫🤫🤫) in order to get into a teen’s veterinarian program at the local zoo (he was 11 and the program required you to be 12).
Dr. Ori was born and raised in Israel. He moved to the States with his family to finish high school and attend college. After he finished his Business degree at the University of Florida (Go Gators!) he moved to Grenada to study veterinary medicine, at St. George’s University. Dr. Ori finished his clinical training at the University of Minnesota (Go Gophers!) and in 2020 he became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist.
After moving from one place to another, Dr. Ori and his husband, Dr. Jordan, decided to set deep roots in Miami. In his spare time, Dr. Ori loves playing piano, riding bikes, play with his kitty cat Mitzi (crazy cat guy alert here), and expand on his veterinary knowledge as much as he can. His medical passions include surgery, dermatology, and traditional Chinese veterinary medicine. Dr. Ori truly believes in the power of teaching. As such, he takes every opportunity he gets to pass on the vast knowledge in veterinary medicine to his clients and his medical team. If you ever wonder, the true way into Dr. Ori’s heart is through dessert and episodes of the Golden Girls.
