Dr. Max Leslie

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri as the oldest of three boys. Shortly after receiving my B.S. in Biology and B.A. in Psychology from Mizzou, I moved to Shanghai, China to teach at an international school and travel the world. After four wonderful years abroad, I moved back stateside and obtained my DVM from Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. My interests include small animal private practice, with an emphasis on client communication and education, rehabilitation, general surgery, and imaging. In my spare time, you'll find me with my wife and two pups, Charlie & Sophie. I also enjoy traveling, being outdoors, Mexican food, and lounging at the beach.


All things animals, especially radiology and surgery.

Fun Fact

My favorite hobby is SCUBA diving. I've been fortunate to see sharks, manta rays, moray eels, turtles, and an octopus or two while diving in Thailand, India, and Indonesia. My most memorable dive to date was 46 meters deep (150 feet) to a sunken WWII ship. I look forward to all of the wonderful diving Florida has to offer!
