Dan Jordan, DVM - Animal Medical Center of the Village - Houston, Texas

Dr. Jordan has practiced in the Houston area for over 30 years since earning his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1995, he moved his practice to central Houston to reach a larger, more diverse client base, and opened Animal Medical Center of the Village. In addition to providing top-notch care for domestic animals, he has a love for exotic animal and wildlife medicine, which began when he recognized the need for expert exotic animal medical care. He witnessed the concern and heartbreak his mother experienced when she had searched unsuccessfully for an avian vet to treat her sick Amazon parrot. Dr. Jordan created a niche for his broad interests through combining dog and cat medicine with the emerging field of exotic medicine.

Both clients and staff agree that Dr. Jordan is a gifted veterinarian. His dedication and devotion to all animals is illustrated by the consistently exceptional, quality care he provides. Fundamental, time-tested basics woven together with the most current scientific research, pharmacology and state-of-the-art technology are the driving forces behind Dr. Jordan’s veterinary practice. His profound understanding of veterinary medicine, curiosity and aptitude for discovering the root cause of any illness affecting a pet, compassionate treatment towards all patients, and the gratitude he and his staff maintain in their relationship with AMCV clients and their pets are all foundational to his practice.

Michelle Taylor, DVM - Animal Medical Center of the Village - Houston, Texas

Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Taylor grew up watching Animal Planet—and she especially loved the veterinary shows. Her love for animals was kindled by not only what she learned from the television, but from personal experience. Her first childhood pet, a cat name Fumar, taught her a lot about compassion toward animals and their health needs, and consequently inspired her to pursue veterinary medicine.

She worked hard throughout her schooling and shadowed many veterinarians to get a feel for their daily work. Dr. Taylor was accepted into Texas A&M University for Biomedical Sciences, and then went directly into their veterinary school for her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. She graduated in 2018 and is now a part of our team!

At home, she has two cats: Theodore, a Siamese, and Merlin, a domestic short-hair. She loves spending time with them, as well as crafting, cooking and playing board games.

Sarah Kaplan-Stein, DVM - Animal Medical Center of the Village - Houston, Texas

Dr. Sidney Leidy is a native Houstonian who graduated from Texas A&M in 2021. She has a long history of working with animals, starting as kennel technician at the age of 17, and never looking back! She is passionate about all aspects of veterinary medicine, with a specific interest in surgery and internal medicine.  

Dr. Leidy also has interests in a broad range of species, making her an excellent fit for AMCV. Reptiles in particular hold a special place in her heart, as she has a 4 year old pet ball python named Ziggy!

When she’s not at work, she enjoys soccer, sand volleyball, cooking, camping, and hiking. Her favorite part of working at AMCV is the relationships she gets to develop with her clients and their pets.
