Dr. Briana Patten
Dr. Brianna Patten grew up in Prattville, Alabama, where she was President of the local 4-H horse club and volunteered with a handicap riding stable. It wasn’t long before she was shadowing her local veterinarian. For her, one choice of career became obvious: animal medicine. Dr. Patten hasn’t looked back since! She’s a proud member of the veterinary team here at South Rhea Animal Hospital.
Dr. Patten graduated from Auburn University with her degree in animal science before heading to the University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to earn her doctorate, graduating magna cum laude and gaining induction into the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. While in veterinary school, she developed a special interest in nutrition, sports medicine, and preventative medicine, and decided that she would like to continue working with both large and small animals. Dr. Patten joined the team here at South Rhea Animal Hospital in July of 2019 and couldn’t be happier to help the pets and animal parents of this area!
When she’s not at work, Dr. Patten enjoys hiking, attending concerts, antique shopping, trying new foods, staying active in her church ministry, and spending quality time with her dog. She shares her life with a miniature Goldendoodle, Tripp, who loves cheering on the Auburn Tigers alongside his mom.
