Dr. Monroe is originally from Washington DC, but grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. He discovered from a very young age, a great love for animals. He took every opportunity to learn about and gain experience with different types of animals by working as a veterinary assistant and then technician at a local veterinary hospital. This love for animals persisted beyond childhood into adulthood and he feels very fortunate that he was able to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian. Dr. Monroe attended North Carolina Agricultrual and Technical State University and obtained his B.S. Degree in Labroatory Animal Science in 1993. This education afforded him the necessary pre-requisites needed to apply to veterinary school. Dr. Monroe attended North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine and obtained his DVM degree in 1997. Dr. Monroe worked for 2 years at a small animal hospital in Goldsboro, North Carolina. Upon moving to Pennsylvania in 1999 he went to work full time in emergency veterinary medicine at Pet Emergency Treatment Services in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He worked there for 9 years and in 2005 was afforded the opportunity to purchase his own emergency practice, The Animal Emergency Clinic. Under his leadership, the practice rapidly outgrew the original building and was relocated to York, Pennsylvania from Emigsville in 2007. The new 7500 square foot facility was renamed Animal Emergency & Referral Center of York. The addition of Specialists in Ophthalmology, Surgery, Cardiology, Dentistry and Radiology helped to increase the capabilities of the practice and allow the people of York and surrounding areas access to specialists right in their own backyard. In an age when pet lovers can turn on the television and see television shows featuring emergency veterinary practice, they are aware of all the advanced procedures, diagnostics and treatments available for pets and expect access to that level of care. Dr. Monroe feels fortunate to be a part of a team of caring, dedicated veterinary professionals that make themselves available to help others 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Dr. Monroe currently resides in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with his wife Jennifer, their four children, a cat named "JJ", a turtle named "Sonic," a Uromastyx Lizard named "Bowser" and numerous tropical fish.
