Meet the Heart of Suwanee Animal Hospital Doctors
Daniel Jandrlich, DVM
Born in Lawrenceville, GA. I graduated from North Gwinnett High School, with honors, in May of 2005. I continued my search to satisfy my lust for knowledge with the acceptance of my application to Auburn University. I graduated from Auburn University’s College of Science and Mathematics earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Science with a major in Biomedical Sciences in May of 2010. I earned my degree as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, graduating from Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine (AUCVM) in May of 2014.
Following my graduation, my father became my mentor and guide, ushering me into my role as an Associated Veterinarian and Hospital Production Manager for the past three years at his practice in Rainbow City, Alabama. My father, Dr. Mark S. Jandrlich, graduated from AUCVM in the Class of 1985 and has worked as a Practice Owner and Veterinarian for over 30 years in Alabama, Georgia and Florida. The lessons my father taught me and the experience I gained can be summarized, simply, into a single phrase: “do what is best for the animal, and everything else will fall into place.” This notion gave rise to an idea that I believe and practice, the One-Health Initiative; that is, working with clients to achieve the healthiest lifestyle possible for their animal companions. To date, I strive to be a well-rounded general practitioner of veterinary medicine with particular interests in the fields of internal medicine, research, surgery and business. Also, as an interesting historical fact, in 1991 my father and his classmate from vet school, Dr. Scott Hancock, built the Heart of Suwanee Animal Hospital which set the foundation for the hospital that it is today.
Most recently, I have made two of the greatest accomplishments of my life to date. The first, asking the love of my life to marry me with a response of YES! The second, becoming a father in June of 2015! I also have three dogs that I enjoy sharing time with: Memphis, a 7 year-old Doberman pinscher; Fancy, a 4 year-old Rottweiler; Jewel, an 8-year old Shih-Tzu. My future endeavors: to be a good husband, a good father and a good veterinarian. I look forward to growing further in knowledge and understanding as the Medical Director at the Heart of Suwanee Animal Hospital, always reflecting upon the past so that we may benefit in the future.
Caleb Preston, DVM
Dr. Caleb Preston graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. He served in the U.S. Army as a combat medic for 6 years with a tour in Afghanistan, and served for 3 years as an Army veterinarian. His veterinary interests include exotics and ophthalmology, but he enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine. In his free time he likes to take his 4 furry friends to dog parks, hiking, outdoor activities, and spending time with family.
Sidney Tison, DVM
Dr. Sidney Tison is a 1985 graduate of the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine, and was a member of the Veterinary Academic Honor Society Phi Zeta. He has also been recognized by Atlanta Magazine as both a Five-Star Veterinarian, as well as a Best Practice member. Dr. Tison wanted to combine his family’s deep love for animals, with his love of science; and he feels that he could not have found a more fulfilling choice of profession. He has worked primarily with the routine aches and pains of dogs and cats, always remembering that your own individual pet will never be just a statistic to you. Dr. Tison has also managed to help with a wide range of unusual situations, from cancer surgery and chemotherapy on a hamster, to stitching up a Labrador Retriever that had been mauled by a bear.
Sidney and his wife Carol, a retired Gwinnett County Schoolteacher, have lived in either Duluth or Suwanee since moving into their first home together, and have always enjoyed this area. Sidney is also a voracious reader in his spare time, which is probably why he did manage to win at least one game on Jeopardy! in 2006.
