Board-Certified Veterinary Oncologists:

Lyndsay Kubicek, DVM, DACVR (Radiation Oncology)








Dr. Kubicek specializes in cancers treated with radiation therapy with an emphasis on maintaining good quality of life for
patients. Prior to joining Angell, Dr. Kubicek developed the radiation program at the University of Florida where she was a
clinical assistant professor and the University’s first radiation oncologist. Dr. Kubicek leads Angell’s radiation therapy
program. Angell’s radiation therapy options include palliative and definitive therapies using photon and electron beams. Dr.
Kubicek is an advocate of proactive pain control and has extensive training in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). IMRT minimizes side effects by sculpting the radiation treatment beam to the exact
size and dimensions of the tumor. SRS delivers high doses of radiation using a precise beam to the site of the tumor. The
high dosage allows for fewer treatment sessions (3 or 4 instead of 18-20). Beyond the technology, Dr. Kubicek loves
working in oncology because of the relationships she builds with clients and patients. She also relishes Angell’s
interdisciplinary approach to helping patients.

J. Lee Talbott, DVM, DACVIM  (Oncology)
Dr. Talbott earned her veterinary degree from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011 followed
by a small animal rotating internship in Denver, Colorado at Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital from 2011-2012. Dr. Talbott
received advanced training in medical oncology at the University of Florida, as part of a comprehensive oncology
department that combined the use of surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists – one of only two
academic training programs in the U.S. to offer this type of oncologic training. Dr. Talbott was board certified in medical
oncology in 2016 and is passionate about collaborating with Angell’s team of specialists in order to use a multi-modal
cancer treatment approach including immunotherapy, optimized nutrition and integrative medical therapies for pain
management and palliation, in addition to traditional treatments utilizing chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. It is an
exciting time to be in the field of veterinary oncology especially with the advancement of molecularly targeted drug therapy
for treatment of cancer in our companion animals.
