Dr. Michael Reese obtained his undergraduate degree in microbiology from The Ohio State University, and then his doctorate of veterinary medicine from the University of Florida. He continued his education by pursuing a general rotating internship at Tufts University, followed by a neurology internship at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Texas. He then completed a residency in neurology/neurosurgery at Purdue University in Indiana. During his residency, Dr. Reese won three awards for his teaching and patient care. While at Purdue, his accomplishments with saving a greyhound with meningitis were documented on their blog.
Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Reese became a board-certified neurologist. He stayed as faculty at Purdue University after his residency before returning to Florida. He and his wife Carissa have since joined the team at Southeast Veterinary Neurology. His interests include neurosurgery and management of brain diseases (tumors, infectious and noninfectious diseases).
Outside of the hospital, Dr. Reese enjoys the outdoors. Fishing, kayaking, and hiking are among his favorite activities, but he also enjoys taking his two dogs, Phoebe and Porter, out on their walks.
Dr Reese and Carissa are amazing! Kind, caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, patient and very sweet with my dog! I would recommend them to anyone having need for a neurologist!Sue Pappagallo
