Certification: Diplomate ACVIM (2000)
Dr. Diane Roberts is a graduate of the University of Virginia, where she earned a BA in English literature and minored in both biology and religious studies. During her senior year in college, Dr. Roberts realized that her true passion was veterinary medicine and spent a post-grad year at Colorado State University in order to satisfy her vet school prerequisites. She then received her DVM from the University of Georgia’s School of Veterinary Medicine (1996). Dr. Roberts stayed at UGA to complete a small animal internship and an internal medicine residency. She became board certified in internal medicine in 2000 and joined SAGE in 2002. Dr. Roberts likes all aspects of internal medicine, but particularly enjoys the challenges of urinary issues, including the removal of stones, and liver and gastrointestinal diseases.
When not practicing, Diane enjoys the great outdoors: hiking, skiing, running, and hanging out on the beach with her two dogs (Sundance, a yellow lab, and Bacon, a fuzzy, friendly giant schnauzer/wolfhound mix). Sundance spends many a day in the Critical Care Unit keeping morale high. Diane has been known to enjoy an occasional glass of fine wine, surely a nod to her days working in a high-end wine store during her later college years. Dr. Roberts was drawn to veterinary medicine by her positive experience with her own pets growing up: a sheltie and a black cat who provided unconditional love and support.
