Corning Animal Hospital

Our Veterinary Staff

Joan Hilfiker, D.V.M

Since 1982 I have been providing health care to family pets at Corning Animal Hospital. Prior to that time my husband and I owned a mixed animal practice in Colorado caring for ranch and companion animals. A graduate of Colorado State University of Veterinary Medicine, I previously had a career as a nurse practitioner in Colorado. There are many similarities between human and animal health and the needs of their families, so it was a very natural transition. I am proud to have been the recipient of The Gentle Doctor Award at Colorado State University, and the NYS Outstanding Veterinarian of the Year. My special interests include preventative health care, lameness evaluation, soft tissue and reconstructive surgery. My husband, Dr. Ron Linkenheil and I have 3 daughters and several pets: a pug, Bug, yellow Lab, and 2 cats. We still enjoy family vacations together on The Finger Lakes, in Florida and Colorado.
