Bio Coming Soon
Dr. Diana Baranska-Hubicki grew up in a small town in Southeastern Poland. At a young age, she developed an interest in veterinary medicine from her enthusiastic father, who worked as a veterinary technician with mostly large animals.
Dr. Baranska-Hubicki graduated from the Agricultural University of Lublin in 2007, where she focused on small-animal medicine. After coming to the U.S., she worked first as a veterinary technician and then associate veterinarian for several years at an animal hospital in Chicago.
Outside of work, she keeps busy with her husband Pawel, their two young sons, and two rambunctious cats, Hela and Jozia.
Dr. Piotr Warcholek grew up in Krakow, Poland. He earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the prestigious Academy of Agriculture in Wroclaw, Poland. He then moved to Montreal, Canada, to practice veterinary medicine and gain more experience in specialty surgeries. He also worked for the Humane Society, where he performed many surgical procedures. When he moved to the United States, he furthered his surgical knowledge by working at the Veterinary Specialty Center in Buffalo Grove, IL.
Dr. Warcholek has specialized in small animals and exotic pocket pets for the last 30 years. His extensive knowledge and experience in veterinary medicine make him a wonderful doctor and an expert surgeon.

He now lives in the northwest suburbs with his wife, two children, and their dog, Krispen.
