Veterinarian and Practice Owner



Dr. Berman & staff are exceptional! During the worst possible experience with a pet, it was evident that Dr. Berman and staff truly cared about us and our pet. I confidently recommend Dr. Berman.

- Brandon, Pet Parent

My senior cat recently went through some hard times and Dr. Kitchen was especially caring and available to me for questions [...] Thank you, over and over.

- Judy, Pet Parent

Dr. Potter has been caring for my cats for several years. When the time came to end their lives, she (and staff) showed more kindness, patience and compassion than I have ever known.

Michael Berman, DVM


Prior to purchasing Animal Hospital at Grayhawk, Dr. Berman spent 5 years working in other practices in Scottsdale and Phoenix, AZ.  A born and raised Minnesotan, he graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010.  Dr. Berman enjoys all aspects of veterinary care, but has a particular interest in nutrition, dental care, behavior, and feline internal medicine.  In 2016, Dr. Berman became the first Fear Free Certified Veterinarian in the state of Arizona - a philosophy he brings to all aspects of patient care for your pets here in North Scottsdale!  In 2017, Dr. Berman joined the Veterinary Dentistry Academy, a select group of doctors who have completed advanced training in all aspects of oral care for dogs and cats.


When Dr. Berman isn't at the hospital, he can often be found at home with his wife, Dr. Kitchen, and their twin boys.  He is the proud owner of an English Yellow Labrador Retriever named Izzy, and hopes to add a cat or three to their family again soon.

Katie Kitchen, DVM

Before purchasing Animal Hospital at Grayhawk, Dr. Kitchen worked at Faust Animal Hospital in Phoenix for nearly 4 years. Born and raised in Arizona, she graduated from Deer Valley High School and ASU West before heading up to Minnesota for vet school. This is where she met her future husband, Dr. Berman. It wasn't hard to convince him that sunshine was better than snow, and they moved back to Arizona shortly after she graduated.  Dr. Kitchen has a particular interest in behavior, nutrition, and canine internal medicine.


When not at the clinic, Dr. Kitchen enjoys spending time with her husband and the furry members of their family: Mason, an Australian Shepherd, Sera, a deaf and mostly blind Border Collie, and Tworty the tortoise, along with the pets Dr. Berman brought into the family. She also enjoys competing in agility with Mason, reading, and spending time with her twin boys.


Patsy Potter, DVM

Dr. Potter is a native of North Carolina. She graduated from NC State with a degree in zoology, then went on to receive her veterinary degree in 1990.  She moved to Arizona in 2001 and has worked in Mesa, Scottsdale, and Phoenix.  Prior to working at Animal Hospital at Grayhawk, Dr. Potter worked with Dr. Kitchen at Faust Animal Hospital in Phoenix.  Her areas of interest include surgery, dental care, and preventative medicine.


Dr. Potter lives with her husband Michael, and their two cats Rudie and Pearl.  She spends her time away from the clinic gardening, developing her welding skills, and trying new recipes.
