Meet the Avian and Exotics Team

Brendan Noonan, DVM, DABVP (Avian Practice)

Dr. Noonan figured out early on in life he was interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine while surrounding himself with exotic animals as pets.  After graduating high school, he went on to receive his bachelor’s degree in animal science from Cornell University in 2005 followed by his doctorate in veterinary medicine in 2009.  His strong interest in exotic animal medicine, particularly avian, led him south toward warmer weather to complete an internship with Dr. Kelleher at Broward Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital in Coral Springs, Florida.  He was fortunate enough to go back to Cornell in 2010 to pursue his ultimate goal of an ABVP (avian) residency with Cornell’s exotic animal medicine service.  He finished his 3 year residency in July of 2013 and joined the Angell exotics team in September 2013. When he is not at the clinic Dr. Noonan enjoys spending time with his Umbrella Cockatoo, Eastern rosella parakeet, English budgie and 2 mix breed dogs.

Patrick Sullivan, DVM, DABVP (Avian Practice)

Dr. Patrick Sullivan has always had an interest in exotic animals, keeping several different species growing up. Upon finishing an undergraduate degree at Mount Ida College, he went on to receive his doctorate in veterinary medicine from St. George’s University in 2009. After practicing in the Boston area for 4 years, Dr. Sullivan accepted a position as an Avian and Exotics intern at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. Following his internship, he completed an Avian & Zoological Medicine residency at The University of Tennessee in Knoxville. During his residency, he was able to work with companion exotic animals, as well as zoo and native wild animals. Working with conservation groups provided him with the opportunity to treat American black bears, bald eagles and non-domestic felines such as tigers, lions, leopards, and mountain lions. Dr. Sullivan finished his residency in July of 2017 and was thrilled to be able to come back home to Massachusetts to join the team at Angell West.  In his free time, he enjoys live music, following Boston sports, and traveling.
