Meet The Doctors (DVM)
Dr. Tarabrella is a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and has been practicing
veterinary medicine since 1999. He has a special interest in veterinary dental health and orthopedic surgeries. His
favorite part of veterinary medicine is the bond he has formed with many of his long-standing clients and their pets.
Additionally, Dr. Tarabrella loves helping homeless pets get healthy for their forever homes. He has been working
closely with rescue groups such as Joseph's Legacy, PAWS, H.A.R.T and many others since beginning practice in this area
While he would not qualify himself as solely a dog or cat person, Dr. Tarabrella feels he has a special understanding of the feline psyche. While some might shy away from the difficult feline patient, he embraces the quirks and eccentricities that make us love them. In addition to caring for canine and feline patients, Dr. Tarabrella enjoys working with exotic pets, such as small mammals (rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters) and reptiles.
Dr. Tarabrella resides in Middletown with his wonderful wife and five spirited children. His cherished pets include 4 dogs, 3 cats, 2 potbellied pigs, well as a flock of chickens and ducks. Dr. Tarabrella enjoys spending time with his family and working outdoors on his tractor. His other interests include karate, football, and coaching his daughters in volleyball. Being from Pennsylvania, he is a true Steelers' fan. Even though they are a division rival, he also roots for the Bengals (when they are not playing the Steelers of course!). Finally, being a graduate of The Ohio State University, he naturally loves all things Ohio State. There is nothing better than Ohio State football in the fall! Go Bucks!
Since opening Monroe Family Pet Hospital in 2007, one of Dr. Tarabrella's goals has been to support the Monroe community through donations to local sports teams, local charities, Monroe local schools, and a multitude of community events. In 2017 Dr. Tarabrella was enormously proud to bring to Monroe its first state of the art 7500 sq ft free standing veterinary hospital. This building, The Lodge as some call it, allows us the necessary space and capability to serve the veterinary needs of Monroe and the surrounding area for years to come. Ultimately, his most important goal will always be for Monroe Family Pet Hospital to provide his clients and patients the time, expertise, and individual attention needed to be sure their concerns are properly addressed. It is important to him that this level of service happens each and every time a client walks through our doors.
Dr Beth Osborne graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1988 with an emphasis on the human-animal bond. She spent time with Pilot Dogs and the Capital Area Humane Society while in school and has worked with numerous humane shelters and rescue groups during her years of private practice. Dr. Osborne supports all Ohio sports teams, especially the Buckeyes, Reds and Browns. She is married with 2 children and shares her home with 2 dogs and a cat.
Alyssa received her professional training at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine where she learned the valuable lesson to never get into an argument with a determined alpaca (she lost). She grew up in Coffee County, Tennessee, where she was surrounded by as many cats, dogs, and pocket pets as she could reasonably smuggle into her house. She also loved working with her local humane society to bottle-feed boxes full of orphan kittens, and assisting shelter pets continues to be very important to her.
Professionally, Alyssa holds a special place in her heart for pocket pets and for feisty senior patients. She loves partnering with pet parents to design a health plan tailored to the specific needs of each particular pet. After practicing medicine in her hometown, Alyssa fell in love with Cincinnati and moved here to be near quality ice cream. Now, Alyssa shares her home with two very bossy fur babies, Fox and Cobalt. On the weekends, you can find her doing what they love best-going on adventures with Fox or curling up on the couch with Cobie while watching the X-Files.
Dr. Ann Impson graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. With a love of the outdoors and wildlife and experience working at the Cincinnati Zoo, she originally focused on training to work with wildlife in school, but quickly became hooked on the challenge of clinical practice and the important role the veterinarian plays in supporting the human animal bond. After graduation, she worked in a range of practice settings including a dairy externship, practice at shelter and veterinary hospitals. Her professional interest became focused on internal medicine, surgery, dentistry and pain management.
Dr. Impson and her husband and children have fostered and adopted numerous animals through the years. She currently has a small Great Pyrenees from the Pyrenees rescue, a brilliant mixed breed dog from DREAMS for pets, two very ornery but lovable tripod cats (from work of course!), a savvy gaited trail horse, and a genuine sweetheart of a molly mule. In her free time-if there is any-she enjoys time with her family, live music of all kinds but especially the Blues, museums that make her think, kayaking, and camping (especially with her dogs along for the hikes.)
