Bryan Gelman was born and raised in New York. He attended Cornell University in Ithaca, NY for both his undergraduate as well as his veterinary degrees. Following graduation, he completed a one year internship at the Oradell Animal Hospital in New Jersey and then joined the Animal Medical Center in New York City as one of the staff emergency doctors overseeing one of the busiest veterinary emergency rooms in the world. In 2014, he moved to Toronto with his soon to be wife and shifted roles from emergency medicine to general practice and started working at a well established veterinary clinic. When that hospital was acquired by a large veterinary corporation, he decided it was time to go out on his own. The Yonge & St Clair Veterinary Hospital was opened in May 2019.
