Dr. Adam Polosetski

Dr. Polosetski studied in Europe at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Brno, Czech Republic. He then graduated with Honors in July 2010. After graduation he worked in Israel at a 24-hour emergency hospital where he gained experience in both emergency medicine and surgery. Dr. Polosetski worked in close contact with veterinary specialists in ophthalmology, oncology, surgery, and internal medicine. He loves animals and people, and believes in performing quality medicine by educating pet owners about their pet’s condition. He believes client education should be in ways that owners can understand, and that they know the reasoning for treatment (not just complicated medical terms). He is the proud father of three pets, Lizzy—a jack Russel mix, Nika—a lab mix, and Samson—a street cat. In his free time he enjoys travelling, hiking, skiing, and trying new tasty food (then exercising to lose the calories gained)!


Dr. Katie Raper

Dr. Katie Raper originally hails from suburban Detroit, Michigan (8 mile road is a real place!). She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Grand Valley State University and then went to the Ross University for her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and completed her clinical year at Auburn University (War Eagle!).

Dr. Raper has zero human children, but she does have three "fur babies," a maltese mix named PD, a gigantic cat named Leo, and a kitten named Archie. Her special interests in vet med include ophthalmology, neurology, surgery, and exotics, but outside of the clinic, she loves traveling, reading, scuba diving, lounging around with her pets, singing, and eating pizza.


Dr. Stack

Dr. Stack is a 1985 Ohio State graduate who has been practicing at Ironwood Veterinary Clinic since 1995. She and her husband, Don, are involved in greyhound rescue and Don is a driver for Humane Society of Yuma's Rescue Express. The Stacks enjoy cycling and RV'ing and can't wait to be "snowbirds" themselves!
