Dr. William A. Mandel grew up in Cleveland Heights, graduated from Beachwood High School and earned his DVM at Ohio State University in 1992. He practiced in Madison, Geneva and Euclid before opening his first clinic in 1995 in Wickliffe, Ohio. He also covered for doctors at the Akron and West Side referral and emergency clinics until 2001 at which time he sold his practice for an opportunity to be director of a large practice in Huntington Beach. He was homesick for his family and returned to Cleveland, working in Lyndhurst until 2006, at which time, he decided to revitalize a practice in Cleveland Heights, followed in 2009 by an opportunity to reopen his original practice in 2009. Dr. Mandel has spoken for numerous clubs, schools and associations including the Association of Avian Veterinarians national meeting and appeared numerous times on the Morning Exchange. He has served as guest practitioner at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine teaching hospital as an exotic and avian practitioner. He is passionate about nutrition and husbandry in animals and believes that these two areas are the foundation for most disease in all species, including humans. He enjoys hiking, bicycling, running, cooking, and painting. A picture of his dog Hannah, which he painted in 2001, graced the cover of the American Veterinary Medical Association Journal in October, 2003. Dr. Mandel currently lives in Beachwood.
