Michael Alber, Associate DVM
I was born and raised in Sterling, Kansas. Having been drafted into the Army during Viet Nam, I was lucky to have been sent to Germany for my tour of duty and then used the G.I. bill to fund Vet School. I graduated from Kansas State University in 1979 and moved to Roswell with my wife and two children.
I worked at a mixed Animal Hospital in Roswell, New Mexico, and then opened College Garden Animal Hospital as another Mixed Animal Hospital with Dr. Jim Humphreys, who is still my partner of 31 years.
I enjoy antiques, old cars, and travel. My son Tony is a small animal Veterinarian in Gilbert, Arizona with his wife who is also a Veterinarian. They have to boys ages 5 & 9 years old. My daughter, who is a Pharmacist, & her husband recently moved to Roswell with their 2 boys, ages 2 & 9 years old.
Life is really good for me and my wife, Dianne, of 40 years here in Roswell.
