Staff

Dr Doyle is one of the senior partners of the Northern Suburbs Veterinary Hospitals and has been practising at the Greensborough Veterinary Hospital since 1991.

Dr Michael graduated with Honours from the University of Melbourne in 1982. Since then he has gained further qualifications in small animal surgery with the Australian College of Veterinary Surgeons; a Masters in Veterinary Studies in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery in 2005; and become a Penn Hip Certified Radiologist in 2006.

He also is a senior Fellow and Academic Associate with the University of Melbourne, Veterinary Faculty.

Michael’s interest outside of work include, travelling, dining, cycling, movies, renovating houses and cooking, as well as being a passionate Carlton supporter. 

Dr Rachel McCue began visiting us as a science student before transferring into Veterinary Science and graduating with Honours from Melbourne University in 1998. Rachel then began practising with us immediately upon graduating on 7/12/1998. We were not to know then that she was to eventually become a partner.

In December 2003 Rachel resigned and travelled with her husband around Europe basing themselves in England. Rachel did locums in the area gaining great experiences and learning more about pocket pets and the options in treating different cases. In England many clients have pet insurance making treatment a lot easier financially. In December 2004 we received a phone call and Rachel returned to our practice as at the time we had a vacancy for an experienced surgeon. Between 2006 and 2009 Rachel worked part time due to the arrival of her children Will and Hanna.

On 1/7/2010 Dr.Rachel McCue became a partner at Northern Suburbs Veterinary Hospitals. She has been a calming influence amongst “the blokes” and has a large following of clients due to her great repore with people and her vast knowledge.

If there is ever any spare time Rachel follows the mighty pies with gusto and she is up to date with most sporting events. She enjoys getting to the beach with the family and most types of activities from swimming to cycling. At home Maisy the Jack Russell is the family pet which Rachel actually vaccinated in a consult and made enquiries as to whether the pups were looking for homes. How lucky was Maisy! Dr.McCue consults at our Rosanna clinic four days per week.

In January Srdan decided after being with our practice for 5 years since emigrating, it was time to experience his professional life in a new practice. This meant saying good bye to the friends he had made with staff and clients during his time with us.
