Meet Our Team




Say hello to the Summerside Vet Hospital team!

We are so fortunate to have such a compassionate and close knit team.

We can’t wait to meet you!



Dr. Lisa Gruber

D.V.M. & Owner


Dr. Lisa was raised on a small farm west of Edmonton and knew from a young age, she would become a vet.  Lisa completed her Bachelor of Science (Animal Science major) degree at the University of Alberta and then moved to Melbourne, Australia to complete her veterinary medicine degree.  Lisa graduated with honors in 2008.  She worked at a small animal practice for over four years in Melbourne before taking a year off to travel to over thirty countries.  A particular highlight of this adventure was volunteering at an animal sanctuary in Sri Lanka.  Lisa and her husband then returned to the Edmonton area where she worked at a very busy small animal practice for five years before moving to Summerside Vet Hospital.

Lisa has an interest in dentistry and internal medicine and is passionate about preventative care throughout the life of your pet.

She and her husband have a young son.  Their family is rounded out with three dogs, George, Millie and Lou, and a cat named Blanche.  She loves spending time with her family, gardening, reading, walking her dogs, and being outdoors as much as possible.   She looks forward to welcoming you to Summerside Vet Hospital!


 Dr. Pat Kubik

D.V.M. & Owner


Pat grew up on a mixed farm (beef and dryland crops) near Turin, Alberta.  He studied Agricultural Biotechnology at the University of Lethbridge before being admitted to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine.  He graduated with distinction in 2005.  After working at clinics in Vernon, Calgary, and Southern Ontario, Pat settled in Edmonton in 2010.

Pat loves spending his free time with his wife and two small children.  Family outings to hike, bike and play at the park are frequent and treasured.  Pat also enjoys running.

As a veterinarian, Pat’s goal is to work with each case to provide the best possible medicine and care within the available means.  He is especially interested in the benefits of providing dental care for pets.  Pat also likes working with aging pets to ensure comfort and a good quality of life.
