Dr. Blumberg was born and raised in sunny south Florida. Although a lifetime animal lover, he first followed in his father’s footsteps by receiving a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan. He quickly realized that this was not his dream profession so after only a year in the field he moved home, took a job as a technician, met his beautiful wife, Liz, and completed the pre-requisites needed for veterinary school. He was quickly accepted to Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine where he received his doctorate of veterinary medicine 4 years later. Upon graduation, his wife and he were looking for a change of scenery, and having both grown up skiing and hiking, decided to start a new adventure in Salt Lake City. While specializing in radiation oncology, internal medicine, or neurology seemed appealing, the broad scope offered by general practice is exciting and rarely gives way to a boring day. While not at the hospital, Dr. Blumberg enjoys seeing live music, hiking, skiing, traveling, and playing with his 4 dogs and 3 cats.
