Dr. Angela Chesanek
I was born and raised in Central Florida. I graduated from University of Florida with a degree in Animal Science (Go Gators!) and from University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. After snowy Illinois winters, I returned to Orlando after graduation. I have been working in the Orlando/Windermere area since 2005. I have special interests in preventative care, geriatric medicine, dermatology, and pain management. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Shawn, and two young daughters. We love Gator football, Windermere food truck night, and family time. We share our home with Mr. Noodles the (giant) Labradoodle and Stella, our swimming pool loving Golden Retriever. I am so excited to open Chain of Lakes Animal Clinic and can’t wait to meet you and your pets!
