Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Dr. Heller attended the University of Colorado and received his undergraduate bachelor of science degree in 1977. With a strong interest in world travel, Dr. Heller went to Torino, Italy where he attended Veterinary school and received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Dr. Heller joined the staff of Huron Animal Hospital in 1988 and developed such a positive and long-lasting relationship with his clients that he decided to purchase Huron Animal Hospital. He assumed ownership in 1996.
Dr. Heller and his wife are the proud parents of two children, both of which reside in the state of Florida where they practice medicine and law. Dr. Heller and his wife share their home with their two dogs, “Zurra,” and "Mocca". In addition, he enjoys hiking, gardening, and traveling with his family.
After many years of treating patients with chronic conditions requiring long-term use of medicine, Dr. Heller sought out a non-chemical method to treat these conditions and to provide comfort and relief. He received his acupuncture certification in 2007. Dr. Heller strives to provide a wide variety of treatment options for both his clients and patients.
