Central Broward Animal Hospital Family Team Member Since 2002
Dr. Lezcano joined Dr.Wald and the Central Broward Animal Hospital team in 2002 and has never looked back. She loves everything about being a veterinarian in Plantation, where she can spend the day doing what she loves most: helping pets and their parents. Dr. Lezcano brings her veterinary expertise and laughter to the hospital every day. Fluent in both Spanish and English, she can assist families in either language.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Dr. Lezcano cites her childhood love for and devotion to animals as the primary reason she became a veterinarian. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the University of Florida in 1992 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 1996.
Dr. Lezcano is married to her college sweetheart, Carlos, the District Manager with the Department of Hotels and Restaurants. Her two children, Carlos and Natalie, share their mother’s love for animals and can sometimes be seen helping out at the hospital. The family also includes two dogs, a Yorkie named Apple and a rescue named Pie who was saved from an abusive home.
Outside work, Dr. Lezcano enjoys reading, traveling, Italian food and spending time with her family.
