Dr. Cornell joined the Lombard Veterinary Hospital team in 2015 after earning his DVM from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He also earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the University in 2011. His veterinary interests include internal medicine, cytology, surgery, and dentistry.
His interest in veterinary medicine stems from his frequent trips to Willowbrook Wildlife Center, Cosley Zoo, and from a childhood filled with raising and breeding Great Danes. He rescued his own Great Dane, Odin, from a shelter in Champaign while attending veterinary school. Dr. Cornell and his wife, Kristen also have a young and adventurous Coonhound Mix named Cody.
Lombard has been Dr. Cornell’s home for over 20 years. When he was younger, he enjoyed sports and music activities at Glenbard East High School with his two younger brothers and was lucky enough to attend college with them at the University of Illinois. When he’s not caring for animals, he enjoys watching and playing sports with his friends and family. His favorite sports are football, basketball, and tennis. Additionally, he and Kristen love taking their fur-children to many of the Dupage Forest Preserves and dog parks.
