Sandra A. Coon, DVM
Dr. Coon came to Broadway Veterinary Hospital in 1990. She worked for Dr. Derosier during his illness and took on management responsibilities during the last couple years of his life. Dr. Coon purchased Broadway Veterinary Hospital in 1994. She is the Medical Director and a staff veterinarian. Dr. Coon grew up in rural Bothell which grew to be suburban Bothell. She haunted the neighboring dog breeder, sheep rancher and dairy farm and fell in love with animals and the people who cared for and valued them. She focused her educational efforts toward learning about animals as soon as she was able to read. One day the dog breeder took her to attend a C-Section to help revive puppies as they came out. From that day to this she never questioned what she wanted to do with her life. Dr. Coon is committed to the human animal bond and enhancing both the lives of people and animals. She is committed to continuing education averaging over 50 hours of intensive veterinary medical course work every year. Dr. Coon is active in the veterinary medical community including membership in Washington State Veterinary Medical Association, Seattle King County Veterinary Medical Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association and American Association of Feline Practitioners.
Dr. Coon finds great joy in being a general practitioner as she is able to help in so many different aspects of medicine and surgery. Pressed to choose one she admits that she loves preventative health care. Helping animals to stay healthy is really what it is all about. Dr. Coon enjoys and finds a great sense of accomplishment in soft tissue surgery of all kinds. Additionally she loves dentistry, chronic disease management such as kidney disease, diabetes, hyperthyroid disease, hypertension, Addison's disease, autoimmune issues and geriatric animals and all their issues.
She lives in North Seattle near her parent's home with her husband, son, dog, cat and guppies. She enjoys gardening, the outdoors, playing in the sand box and with legos with her son and volunteering at Cascade k-8 Community School. www.cascadek8.org
Deana McReynolds, DVM
"I believe that people live longer and happier lives when sharing that life with a pet. My goal is to help your pets live healthy, happy lives that will give you the most time with them as possible."
Dr. Deana McReynolds joined the practice in 2011. She has lived and worked in the greater Seattle/Tacoma area for her entire life. In high school, she purchased her first pure bred dog, a cocker spaniel named Lady. When Lady was diagnosed with cancer at 2 years of age, Deana had a very difficult decision to make. She was just starting college with limited funds, but she wanted to give Lady every chance at leading a good long life. So while juggling school, sorority activities, and work, she took Lady for chemotherapy. Lady made it through a whole year with treatment, which at the time was quite remarkable. Deana was so impressed by the compassion the veterinary oncologist had for Lady, she was inspired to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.
Dr. McReynolds headed the movement at Broadway Veterinary Hospital to become a Certified Feline Friendly Practice in 2012. Because of this training, our feline patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during exams and specimen collection. In September of 2013, she was invited to tour the Hill's Science Diet Pet Food Manufacturing Center in Topeka, Kansas. While there, she presented a "Peer to Peer" talk on how we educate our staff and clients about nutrition. She has volunteered at Seattle Humane Society's Pet Project providing low income AIDS patients vet care for their pets, and currently volunteers for the Chicken Soup Brigade with Lifelong AIDS alliance delivering food to low income AIDS patients.
She graduated from Shorecrest High School in 1982 with honors, the University of Washington in 1988 on the Dean's list with a degree in Mathematics and from veterinary school at Washington State University in 1997. She enjoys small animal medicine, especially behavior and bulldog medicine. Her loves are the Seahawks, Mariners, reading, quilting, needlework, logic puzzles, going to the movies and of course her 7 year old yellow lab/greyhound mix Kia. She greatly misses her English Bulldog Phoebe, who passed away in August at 14 years old. Although she does not currently live with any cats, she loves cuddling with all of our feline patients here at the hospital!
