Kristen - Registered Veterinary Technicianb

My name is Kristen and I am Dr. Kostal’s Veterinary Technician (and sister!) I currently finished my degree in Veterinary Technology at Stautzenberger College in Brecksville, Ohio. In my spare time when I’m not helping your pets get better quickly, I enjoy spending time with friends, cooking and cuddling with my pets, especially my dog Zoe and cat Cruiser (which you have most likely met in the clinic!).

Rachel - Registered Veterinary Technician#

I'm Rachel! A registered veterinary technician and proud graduate of The Ohio State University and Columbus State Community College. I am orignally from Medina, Ohio and now live in Lakewood. I have one great dane, Lady, and one cat, Meow (aka Meatball). I enjoy doing anything outdoors, dance, cheerleading, cooking, and spending time with family. I love being a veterinary technician and have such a passion for helping animals. Greystone Veterinary Hospital is a great place to work, with awesome staff, clients, and patients!

Waffles - Office Assistant/Greeter

My name is Waffles – and I live at Greystone! I like my name – I guess people voted for it on the Greystone Facebook page! My duties at the clinic include welcoming people as they enter my kingdom, play with puppies, destroying the reception area, printing random documents on the laptops, visiting all the new pets and sleeping. My hobbies include jogging, yodeling, and yachting and I aspire to be a model one day. Until then I’m just going to go knock everything off the reception desk, crawl into your purses/bags and take a nap on top of the radio and make you come pet me! Keep an eye out for Waffles! He likes to hide in crazy places!

  • "Dr. Kostal is great. She has been caring for my two dogs for several years now. She is approachable, and does quality work. Her fees seem better than others in the area, and she doesn't do unnecessary testing, just to run up the bill, like my last two vets did. I give her a thumbs up / 5 stars / 10 out of 10. Take a look at her total review history, she is liked by almost everyone !!!!!!"
