Alex Pietrzyk, DVM

Dr. Alex Pietrzyk

Dr. Alex Pietrzyk, originally from Northern California, is excited to continue the mission of Tribeca Veterinary Wellness. She attained a bachelor's degree with a major in Animal Biology and a minor in Communication at University of California, Davis with a goal of alleviating animal suffering. She decided to continue her studies at her alma mater to complete a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. A veterinary internship then brought her to NYC where she realized her passion for building relationships with families while helping them navigate diverse veterinary medical concerns.

Dr. Pietrzyk has since been guiding New Yorkers through all facets of general companion animal health, tailoring medical recommendations to each unique individual. She has particular interests in preventative medicine, behavior medicine, and senior care.

In her life outside of Tribeca Veterinary Wellness, Dr. Pietrzyk embraces nature by working with flowers through volunteering for BloomAgain and studying ikebana with the school of Ohara. Her free time is filled with strolls in her Brooklyn neighborhood and adventures outside of the city.

In Memoriam Our Beloved Founder

Jennifer B. Berg, DVM

Dr. Jennifer B. Berg

Jennifer B. Berg, DVM was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She spent her formative years there, with her parents and older brother, and a family dog she trained (and dressed up) daily. As a young child, she spent time in summers on a dairy farm in northern Wisconsin, mostly in the barn, bottle feeding calves and trying to befriend and treat the barn cats with their upper respiratory infections.

Jennifer began her life's work in the veterinary profession in high school working as "kennel girl"' at a local animal hospital as soon as her age allowed, and has since worked in almost every role in small animal practice. She understood how each part of the veterinary team is important in creating good care.

Dr. Berg graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997 and completed an Internship at the Animal Medical Center in New York from 1997 to 1998. She accepted an Associate Veterinarian position at the Tribeca Soho Animal Hospital where she was employed from 1998 to 2008. She had her first child in 2008, and then was employed at Animal General on the Upper West Side of Manhattan from 2009 until October 2016. During this time, she also had her second child. Tribeca Veterinary Wellness is the realization of a dream she always had, to create her own veterinary clinic, with her own particular philosophy and positive culture at its core.

"We hold your paws in our hands" is the embodiment of that philosophy, one in which pet owners and their veterinary clinic are together integral parts of the same team in preserving the health and wellness of their pets. It is one in which listening is key, really listening and trying to discover the subtle nuances which exist and which help to identify the best way to help each pet, each patient.

She enjoyed attending Continuing Education meetings focused on the advancements in all veterinary specialties, as well as in general practice. She believed her central role as primary caregiver, counselor, and pro-acitve "connector" in support of her patients many needs, was essential in creating consistency and continuity of care for her patients.

Her own dog, a little white rescue pup named Seeker by her children, can be seen on the website. In addition, making a few website appearances, is her first dog, a soulful Border Terrier named Yahoo, the most precious gift from her wonderful clients, and friends, in Tribeca. Dr. Berg loved to spend time with her husband and two children, visiting NYC’s Art Museums, biking, exploring flea markets, hiking in the mountains of the Adirondacks, reading and writing poetry. She loved to perform any "science with a benefit", such as cooking, making her own bath products with her daughter, or trying her hand in solving just about any problem.

We will forever miss Dr. Berg. Her husband, Lionel Closson and the team at Tribeca Veterinary Wellness are gratified to continue the philosophy and excellence of veterinary care embodied by Dr. Berg.
