Roberto Verzosa, DVM (aka "Dr Bob")
Dr Bob is the owner of East Lancaster Veterinary Hospital. Born in the Philippines, Dr Bob earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of the Philippines College of Veterinary Medicine in 1976. He moved to the U.S. in 1979 where he interned in veterinary hospitals in New York City, Peoria and Ft. Worth including a 3-year stint performing herd health management duties at a 3,000 cow dairy operation in Fort Worth.
After receiving his Board Certification, he worked for several vet clinics in Ft. Worth and Arlington before starting his own practice in 1989. In 2007, he bought the East Lancaster Animal Hospital, one of the oldest and best-established vet hospitals in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. After a smooth transition, Dr Bob has grown the clinic steadily and they are now seeing more Fort Worth pets than ever before in the clinic’s 30-year history.
Dr. Bob’s down-to-earth approach and his calm, gentle demeanor make him an excellent small animal veterinarian and his clients and their pets love him. He is a resident of Fort Worth and lives with a Yorkie named Bulilit (which means “small fry” in Filipino).
Hi. I started my journey as a veterinary technician in 1981 and found my home here at East Lancaster Animal Hospital in 1988. Dr Bob purchased the practice in 2007 and I was honored when he made me the Practice Manager, but my main duty still remains caring for our client’s animals as a veterinary tech. I learn something new each day and I still enjoy coming to work every single day. I look forward to meeting you and your pet soon.
