Dr. Prober has always loved science and grew up surrounded by animals. By middle school, she realized that veterinary medicine was the perfect balance of these important aspects of her life. Throughout high school and college, she pursued a life in veterinary medicine, working with animals in any way she could. As she started her career in veterinary medicine she found that internal medicine was ideal for her as it allowed her to connect with her patients and their families as she managed their long-term care.
