Meet the Heart of Suwanee Animal Hospital Doctors

Sidney Tison, DVM
Medical Director

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.
