Dr. Crystal Frank grew up in Mid-Missouri on a small horse farm with cutting and team-penning horses, and many dogs and cats; which was the foundation for her love of animals and eventual career path.
She attended undergraduate and veterinary school at the University of Missouri in Columbia. Prior to moving to Cedar Rapids in 2010, she practiced at a small animal hospital in Bentonville, AR. She purchased Coralville Animal Hospital in October 2014. She enjoys the variety of patients and ailments she sees in a small animal practice setting.
She currently lives in Solon, IA with her husband Jason and two daughters, 2 dogs (Deuce & Daisy), & Cat (Dottie). Her non-work time revolves around having fun with her family.
She is hoping to someday provide her children with the same small farm childhood experience with which she grew up.
