Dr. Brian Waller
I was born and raised near Topeka, Kansas. I received my undergraduate and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree from Kansas State University in 1994. After 4 years of mixed animal practice with my brother in Kansas, I moved to Phoenix in the Spring of 1998.
Since living in Phoenix, I have enjoyed practicing small animal medicine. I am married and have three daughters, Gentry, who was born in 1997, Sadie, who was born in 1998, and Kinsey, who was born in 2007.
Dr. Cynthia Jones
Growing up in a military family, I’ve lived all around the United States but was born in Virginia. Most of my family is currently in the Midwest. I moved to Arizona after graduating from veterinary school at Ross University in 2015 and completed my clinical year at Kansas State University. My interests include surgery, exotics, wildlife rehabilitation, and behavior.
Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, canoeing, beading, and basket weaving. My family includes a dog named Puddin and two black cats named Sargent and Nimbus.
Dr. Chelsea Linehan
Coming from a military family, I was born in Germany and, shortly thereafter, moved to northern Phoenix where I was raised. I graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor’s degree in 2013 and went on to earn my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2018 from Washington State University. Following graduation, I completed a year-long equine internship, and am now focusing on small animal practice. I have a strong interest in internal medicine and supporting patients with complicated disease processes.
Life in the desert includes my 2-year-old Border Collie/Lab mix named Olive, and Kyrie, my 5-month old domestic shorthair kitten. Outside of the hospital, you can find me spending time with family, horseback riding, and creative writing.
Dr. Lauren McEllen
Originally from Hope, New Jersey, I attended Richard Stockton College of New Jersey for undergrad and Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine for veterinary school. Before joining AZPetVet, I was a radiology technician while at Cornell and a general practice veterinarian for 3 and a half years at
Animal Health Services. Specific areas of interest for me include reproduction medicine and surgery. I enjoy working to foster good breeding practices to produce healthy, well-bred dogs and happy breeder clients. I also find using medicine and surgery to improve the quality of life for patients extremely rewarding, especially during follow up appointments or calls to owners where the improvements are seen!
I moved to Arizona after vet school and other family soon followed for the wonderful weather and opportunities Arizona has to offer! I have a papillon named Paxton, a beagle mix named Sienna, a crested gecko named Marcus and some assorted fish. In my free time, I enjoy crocheting, hiking, photography, reading, gardening, and a variety of crafts. I also give talks at breeder clubs around the valley to teach about reproductive medicine.

As always the staff and Doctors at Animal Hospital of Anthem are amazing! We have been bringing our furry family members there for years and they are the only ones we trust! Several years ago one of my daughters cats was very sick with an abdominal infection and by all accounts should not have made but they were able to save her and we will always be forever grateful. I highly recommend Animal Hospital at Anthem and our pets will never go anywhere else!
This veterinary practice has a great staff all around the board, from the veterinarians, the veterinary technicians, and the front service desk, all play a vital role, and all are amazing. Together, they make a great team, and this practice is second to none! Thank you so much for taking care of my dogs, no matter what ailment or surgery. Words cannot describe our thanks and gratitude to all that who work here. Keep up the great work!
Amazing vets/techs/and everyone else!!! We are always shown such care and compassion! Our Fern is always so excited to be there.
We've been here twice with both of our dogs for an acute issue. Everyone is so friendly and were able to get us in so fast. Very reasonable pricing and great vets. Thanks for taking good care of our pups!
All the vets at this hospital have treated my babies as their own and have never downplayed my fear or anxiety with a more serious issue. I recently moved to Surprise, but I still will drive here to have my babies seen by Anthem Animal Hospital & Grooming.
