Dr. Szabo grew up in Detroit, MI, and attended Michigan State University. Pets have always been a major part of his life and he knew at the young age of 12 that he wanted to become a veterinarian. Having joined Hidden Valley Animal Hospital in August of 2003, Dr. Szabo enjoys helping patients and clients lead healthy, happy lives.
Dr. Szabo is a member of the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) and NCVMA (North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association).
When not working, Dr. Szabo enjoys playing golf, working on his model railroad, watching sports (especially hockey), and spending time with his wife, Dr. Margaret Pepe, his two dogs, and two cats. One pet patient, Mickey Auld, stands out to Dr. Szabo because he was diagnosed with kidney failure at the age of 17. He made a miraculous recovery and had an excellent quality of life for 2.5 more years until he passed away at the age of 20. Cases like this are reminders of the difference Dr. Szabo and his team can make in the lives of others.
