Dr. Lindsay Baker
Dr. Lindsay Baker was born and raised in Tifton, GA. Like many young girls, she dreamed of being a veterinarian when she was little but gradually moved away from the idea. In college, when trying to settle on a decision of how she would incorporate her love of animals and science together she circled back to the idea of Veterinary Medicine. She began working at a local clinic and it sealed the deal. Dr. Baker attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College and the University of South Alabama for undergrad with a major in Biology and then attended Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine graduating in 2012. Pursuing this passion has taken her from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to Las Vegas, Nevada, to Jacksonville, Florida, and now finally to Woodstock, Georgia.
Dr. Baker is also a Captain in the Veterinary Corps of the Army Reserves where she trains and leads soldiers in food defense and medical care to military working dogs. Through the Army, Dr. Baker realized her love of leadership which ultimately led her to the Animal Hospital of West Woodstock, buying the practice from Dr. Cohen in August of 2022. She provides all aspects of veterinary care but has a special interest in ultrasound and dentistry.
Outside of work and Army life, Dr. Baker loves traveling, gardening, cooking, hiking, and spending time with her husband Jack, and two sons Ethan and Logan.
Dr. Gregg Cohen
At a young age Dr. Cohen knew he wanted to either be a veterinarian or a pro golfer. He decided to go the medical route and volunteered at animal hospitals during high school. In 1985, he received his undergraduate degree from Auburn University and then his degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Florida in 1989. He was the original founder of the Animal Hospital of West Woodstock in 1992. He sold the practice to Dr. Baker in 2022 but still sees patients three days a week.
He and his wife Karen have three children (Courtney, Ty, and Jessie) and two grandchildren (Ava and Delilah). They have one dog named Mocha. She is a loving, but energetic dog that sometimes drives them crazy. Their cat, "Boo", makes it clear that she is the boss.
In his spare time, he is usually with his family at a sporting event or on the golf course.
Dr. Justin Boggs
Dr. Boggs grew up in Florida, having moved around a lot because of his father's job as a hospital administrator. At an early age he knew he wanted to work with animals, although that train was almost derailed when he saw a large animal veterinarian have his arm up one of his aunt's horse's rear. But despite this, his interest in veterinary medicine persisted, and when his family moved to Macon, Ga, he started to work at his family veterinarian's office as a kennel helper. Ultimately, he went to the University of Georgia where he earned his undergraduate degree and was then accepted to the veterinary school at UGA. After graduating from vet school in 2004, he completed a one-year internship at Georgia Veterinary Specialists in Sandy Springs.
He began working at the Animal Hospital of West Woodstock in 2006 sporadically as a relief vet. He now works consistently on Tuesdays and Fridays. He has a special interest in emergency medicine, internal medicine and neurology. When he isn't with us, he is being kept on his toes at Blue Pearl Pet Hospital in the emergency department.
