  • Dr. Lee Kierstein

    Dr. Lee Kierstein

    Dr. Kierstein (Dr. Lee) discovered his love of animals early on in elementary school, fostering wildlife and raising orphaned puppies, kitten, squirrels and other species. Pursuing his love of animals, he attended State University of New York agricultural school receiving an associate’s degree in animal science learning swine husbandry, dairy farming and poultry management.

    Moving to Florida in 1972, Dr. Lee attended University of Florida receiving his BS degree in animal science while working as a technician in a busy, small animal practice. Acceptance to the University of Florida, class of 1982 College of Veterinary Medicine was the culmination and reward for decades of providing care to animals and enabled him to pursue his dreams.

    After graduation, Dr. Lee traveled to Alaska and provided surgical and medical relief services to many different practices from anchorage to Fairbanks, made lifelong friends in Alaska where he has returned many times to visit and explore the many wonders of the last frontier.

    Returning to Florida in 1983, Dr. Lee pursued his other passion of farming, raising blueberries, timber, and organic vegetables on his 144-acre farm. He started a family, founded a regional pet emergency clinic, worked for the University of Florida research facilities and in 1990 purchased Magnolia Animal Hospital in Ocala, Florida. Dr. Lee helped found the first cooperative pet emergency hospital partnering with local practitioners and The University of Florida providing critical care to the local pet community.

    Dr. Lee sold his practice to American Veterinary Group in 2017 and remains as medical director. Dr. Lee has three children, Gabe, Ben and Kayla, and has been married to his wife Susan for twenty years. They have two miniature dachshunds and two cats.

    Exceeding client expectations and delivering compassionate, affordable veterinary care is Dr. Lee’s mission statement.

  • Dr. Laura Hussey

    Dr. Laura Hussey

    Dr. Laura Hussey grew up in Massachusetts with a love of all things animal. As a young girl, she spent time caring for family pets including dogs, rabbits, hamsters, homing pigeons and chickens. She participated in the local 4H canine program, and spent much of her time in barns working with and riding horses. She attended Delaware Valley University where she graduated in 2008 with a B.S. in large animal science focusing on equine science and management. While studying for her undergraduate degree, she had the opportunity to travel to Ireland one summer to work in a veterinary practice affiliated with the Irish National Stud Farm. Upon graduation, she was bitten by the “Travel Bug” and she set off to explore Europe. She settled in Spain for a time working in the Spanish school system teaching English. Returning home, she spent a year at a small animal emergency and specialist facility before returning to Europe to complete her veterinary degree at the Royal Veterinary College of London, England. While completing her degree, Dr. Hussey had the opportunity to contribute to two research projects, one involving cancer in animals and the other involving genetic diversity in aquatic animals.



    After graduation, she volunteered in Egypt at a charity hospital that treated working horses and donkeys, as well as doing some small animal emergency work and even had a camel for a patient! She has experience treating farm animals and horses, but has found a love of small animal medicine. Dr. Hussey is looking forward to working with the team at Magnolia to bring high quality care to Ocala’s pets and their owners.

    In her free time, she enjoys going on adventures, doing horsey things, and doing anything that involves being in, on, around, or under the water.

  • I have used Magnolia Animal Hospital for over 30 years. I've always been very satisfied with the way they treat my animals and their knowledge. Dr Lee has been a shining star for us and the other doctor's there are just as good. We will continue to us Magnolia Animal as they have just always done a great job with our animals.
