Our Doctors:

Michele Stech, VMD

      I am the proud owner of Parkwood Animal Hospital, having recently taken the reins from the previous owner, who started this practice in 1983. This practice has a long and faithful history of serving the residences of this area, and I am delighted to continue the tradition! 

     I am a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine with an undergraduate degree from Virginia Tech in Animal Science.  I have been practicing veterinary medicine for over 20 years now, beginning my career at a mixed animal practice in New Jersey then moving to Virginia for eleven years at a small animal practice with occasional stints at the local emergency hospital.

     My husband, a radiology nurse, and I have fallen in love with this area of the globe, and we feel that it is the perfect place for our son, who is an active 5 year old, to grow and thrive.  We currently share our household with three cats (all rescued and patched back together from various traumas), but just recently lost our dear golden retriever of 11 years.


Cindy Rowe, DVM:

     My name is Dr. Cindy Rowe and I am proud to have been a part of Parkwood Animal Hospital for 23 years.  I am a graduate of N.C. State University both with my undergraduate degree in Animal Science and my DVM from their College of Veterinary Medicine.

     I have been in small animal practice for 28 years, starting with a practice in Raleigh and some after-hours emergency work before finding my perfect fit at Parkwood.  My family and I love this area and my son and daughter have enjoyed growing up here.

     My husband has worked for IBM in the Research Triangle for 29 years as a programmer/manager.  My son is a student at NCSU and my daughter (currently a high schooler) plans to pursue a veterinary career as she in particular shares my passion for animals and their well-being.  We share our home with our active and overly curious black cat, Pepsi Boo, and a chunky hamster named Bethesda.

Our Staff:

Becky is our long-timer; she knows all of the clients and they are as used to seeing her smiling face as they are coming to the practice.  She is virtually an institution!!!  She used to work in the human side of medicine until switching fields to animal medicine in 1986.  She has been a vet tech since that time.  After working at several different animal hospitals, she landed at Parkwood Animal Hospital in 1992 and considers it her second home. 

"I love the environment and all of our great clients and patients.  We strive to provide the best animal health care in the area and to also make your pets feel at home."

Becky has been claimed by a chihuahua mix named Bongo who grudgingly shares the home space with a big galoot of a German Shepherd named Django.


Matt came to Parkwood Animal Hospital while enrolled as a student at N.C. State.  He graduated in 2007 with a degree in Biology and currently lives in Raleigh. He is a competent and confident veterinary assistant, kind to our patients and handling any situation with aplomb.


Nicole is one of our very capable assistants.  She is intuitive and takes her job seriously, while managing to bring out smiles in the other staff and clients.  She always has a kind word or pat for the pets that come through our doors every day.

     "I graduated from Mt. Olive College with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration in 2008.  I have eleven years of experience working with dogs and cats in small animal veterinary practices.  For the last six years, I have had the pleasure of working at Parkwood Animal Hospital.  My household includes two cats named Callie (14 years) and Palie (6 years), and a dog named Layla (13 1/2 years) in addition to my husband and daughter."


Alison arrived at Parkwood Animal Hospital in August of 2005.  She is originally from West Virginia and moved to Greensboro where she began her career as a veterinary assitant and has remained in the field for15 years.  Alison has a keen grasp of animal behavior and often gives helpful advice to clients.  She helps keep the doctors running in a timely fashion and cares for our patients as if they were her own. 

"My household includes Chewy, Tink and Bella, all of them rescued from the streets or animal clinics in which I've worked."
