Dr. Julie Duval

Veterinary Surgeon

After growing up in Kentucky and Texas, Dr. Duval received a bachelor of science degree from Duke University, then graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and stayed on for a year to complete a rotating internship. She was happy to be able to come back to the south for her surgery residency at the University of Georgia and then accepted a position as a clinical surgery instructor at the University of Pennsylvania, where Dr. Duval was involved with the training of students, interns and residents.

After trying out two private referral practice jobs in Columbia, SC and St. Louis, MO, she and her husband moved to Atlanta in 2000 where they were two of the original specialists at one of the largest veterinary specialty practices in the southeast.

Over 18 years of practice in Atlanta, Dr. Duval was able to gradually adjust her caseload to focus on soft tissue surgery. She also was very active in organizing and participating in the continuing education program at that practice. While enjoying all aspects of soft tissue and oncologic surgery, Dr. Duval has special interest in perineal urethrostomy, portosystemic shunts and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Julie Duval has been married to internist Derek Duval since 1990, and they have two children who are studying at colleges in Georgia. She loves reading, watching college football and basketball (especially the Duke Blue Devils), hiking, travel and photography. She and her husband have two dogs, sheltie Maisie and schipperke Bellatrix, as well as some pets with no fur.

“What an excellent vet! We recently moved to Alpharetta from Woodstock & I brought my dog & one of my cats in for flea allergy issues & Dr. Hardee was so thorough, informative & professional in his examination. He offered many suggestions for assistance, didn’t offer anything unnecessary, & managed to solve our problem very quickly! The front desk staff is also very courteous & friendly. I highly recommend this vet!”
