Dr. Mike Maddux was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida.  He decided early in high school on a career in veterinary medicine after shadowing a vet in his hometown.  Dr. Maddux attended Auburn University where he received a Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology and later his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.  During his time at Auburn, Mike became an avid Tigers fan and gained a vast amount of education in both large and small animal care. 

Since graduation, Dr. Maddux has gained extensive experience with both large and small animal medicine throughout Georgia, Florida, Texas and Tennessee.  Ultimately his heart was in small animal care, and he gave up large animal work.  Now a small animal practitioner, Dr. Maddux's special interests are internal medicine, surgical procedures, and dentistry. Dr. Maddux enjoys getting to know his patients and achieving a comfort level with owners.  He is proud of the veterinary hospital he and his wife have built and watch grow.
