Dr. Dori Marion
Dr. Dori is the founder of Doorbell Vet. Originally from Westchester, NY, she grew up in a house filled with pets: before graduating from high school she lived side by side with four pugs, two cats, a canary, a parakeet and a gecko. After attending Cornell University where she earned her undergraduate degree in Animal Science in 2003 and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2007, she moved to Rochester, where she performed a one-year internship in Small Animal Medicine with Monroe Veterinary Associates. During this final year of training, Dr. Dori gained experience in general veterinary medicine, emergencies, surgery and other specialties.
Following completion of her training, Dr. Dori spent 3 years in general practice at a full-service companion animal AAHA-accredited hospital where she provided high-quality, hands-on medical and surgical care to a wide range of animals. It was during this time that she conceived the idea for Doorbell Vet.
“I saw firsthand that a hospital setting was not the best choice for many of my pet patients,” Dr. Dori explained. “Many pets came to our facility terrified. Most were frightened by a strange place and unfamiliar people. They were unsettled by the car ride, the wait, the smells and the presence of other animals and people. Some even had trouble finding footing on the slick floors and became anxious about injuring themselves. Others just suffered from medical conditions that made travel difficult if not impossible.”
Pets were not the only ones troubled by visits to the veterinary clinic. Pet owners, too, found making and keeping veterinary appointments troublesome. "Pet owners often lamented to me about how hard it was to properly care for their pets,” she said, “especially those with multiple pets and those without convenient transportation. I understood these challenges because my home in Honeoye Falls has one busy husband, 2 dogs, 2 cats, a bunch of chickens and last but not least, a young daughter and son.”
If necessity is the mother of invention, Doorbell Vet was founded using the same logic. “I saw a glaring need for high-quality veterinary care delivered in a home setting, where pets and their owners could avoid the stress and hassle of visiting a clinic. I wanted to bring pet healthcare home to where pets and their owners lived, a place where I could provide both with my undivided attention in a more comfortable, stress-free setting. Doorbell Vet was the answer.”
Dr. Larry Silberg
After over 30 years in the veterinary practice Dr. Silberg has decided to retire! Dr. Silberg spent the last 7 years in practice with Doorbell Vet and many of our clients and patients have come to regard him as a master in his field. He has helped so many of our wonderful fur friends with all the compassion and knowledge of the extraordinary vet that he is!
We are excited for Dr. Silberg to enter this next phase of his life, but we will miss his advice, jokes and most of all friendship that he gave to each and every one of us here at Doorbell Vet.
We hope you all will wish him well and we look forward to continuing to service Dr. Silberg's patients with all the love and respect that he has brought to them.
Good Luck and Best Wishes Dr. Larry! You will be truly missed!
Dr. Catrina Turner
Dr. Turner received her DVM from Cornell University in 2014. Dr. Turner worked in Vermont for 2 years but elected to return to NY to be closer to family. She lives with her husband Ryan, her dog Zoey and her 2 frisky kitties Keno and Angus, who constantly keep her on her toes! In her free time she enjoys yoga, gardening and hiking.
Dr. Terry Allen
Dr. Terry Allen grew up in a military family, so she moved around a lot, living in many states and abroad, in Italy. Her love for animals was realized at a young age, though the size and number of pets she could have were limited because of all the moves. She has been a veterinarian for 30 plus years, having completed her DVM at Cornell University in 1988. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, New York State Veterinary Medical Society, Genesee Valley Veterinary Medical Association, and American Association of Feline Practitioners.
After practicing at a small animal hospital in northern Virginia for 11 years, she and her husband Jon, having retired from the US Coast Guard, moved to Rochester in 1999 where he worked at Xerox Corporation for 19 years. She has been practicing at a small animal hospital in Penfield for the past almost 20 years but felt it was time to do something different. She has the desire to help pets in their homes and has a special place in her heart for seniors with pets. Having aging parents that live in two different Rochester area senior living communities has brought to light the need for pets in such facilities to have easy access to veterinary care. Seeing them in their own homes takes away the stress to the pet (and, therefore, the owner sometimes) and the challenge of their owners needing to arrange transportation.
When she is not busy working, she enjoys playing piano, ringing handbells or singing at church, road biking, traveling to new places near and far, and spending time at home with Jon and their three cats - Tango, Aslan, and Gandalf.

Dr. Martini lives with her husband, 4 dogs and 1 cat. She is an avid runner and hiker and in her spare time she enjoys photography and training/ competing with her dogs in agility and other sports. She is level 2 fear free certified and strives to make every patient as comfortable as possible!
