Veterinarians

Dr. Craig Wilson

Dr. Wilson founded Bayleaf Veterinary Hospital in 1982 and is proud to serve the community for 40 years. In his free time he enjoys aviation and spending time with his poodle Lilly and his Bengal Mando.

Dr. Kevin Sullivan

Dr. Sullivan attended the College of Veterinary Medicine at NCSU and graduated in 2001.  Bayleaf has been lucky to be his home for over 20 years. He and his wife  have a Golden Retriever named Sadie Mae. When not working, Dr. Sullivan likes to spend time outdoors: mountain biking, road riding, and running.

Dr. Patrick Florian

Dr. Florian has been with Bayleaf since graduating from the College of Veterinary Medicine at NCSU in 2018. He enjoys general practice with an interest in internal medicine and preventative care. Dr. Florian is an avid video game enthusiast who also enjoys the occasional art project, hobbies which he loves sharing with his wife while surrounded by his furry family, which include his German Shepherd Bella and his three cats Hansel, Gretel, and Grimm. Dr. Florian can be found working mainly in the afternoon through the evening, allowing our clients more flexibility in having their pets seen after work.

Dr. Rachel Kakas

Dr. Liliya Nusbaum

Dr. Nusbaum has been with Bayleaf since graduating from NCSU in May of 2021. She loves being a general practitioner, but especially loves ophthalmology and surgery. Dr. Nusbaum takes great pride in being a part of the human animal bond, from the first puppy/kitten appointment to geriatric health. When not working, Dr. Nusbaum is almost always at the stable riding her horse Smokey. Liliya also has a special place in her heart for greyhounds (and will likely have another soon). Currently she lives in Raleigh with her husband Devin and her two kitties ChaCha and Tango, whom she is obsessed with.
