About Dr. Chiasson

Dr. Tim Chiasson, a dedicated veterinarian at VetHaven, has a story of resilience and passion that inspires all who meet him. Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Dr. Chiasson pursued his veterinary education in Prince Edward Island, Canada. In 1994, he relocated to Arizona, where he practiced until 2007, before moving to Maine. His career in Maine was vibrant until he faced a life-altering challenge.

In 2012, while living in Waterville, Maine, Dr. Chiasson suffered a massive stroke. Despite being given a less than 5 percent chance of survival by his medical team, he fought against the odds. His recovery journey was arduous; he lost his memory for about five months and was initially limited to moving only his left hand and foot. Despite these immense challenges, Dr. Chiasson's determination never wavered. He underwent extensive rehabilitation, gradually regaining movement and strength, especially on his body’s right side.

His comeback is a testament to his indomitable spirit. By 2016, he joined Desert Sports & Fitness in Tucson, specializing in medical and corrective exercises. His commitment to recovery saw him progress from a wheelchair to using a quad cane, eventually regaining much of his mobility and functional strength. He credits his significant improvements to his dedicated physical therapy and the unwavering support and motivation from his daughter.

Dr. Chiasson's medical journey has not only been a personal triumph but also a beacon of hope and inspiration for others. He openly shares his experience to emphasize the importance of recognizing stroke symptoms and managing risk factors. His story is a powerful reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and the impact of determination and support.

Returning to veterinary practice in Arizona, Dr. Chiasson brings not just his extensive professional expertise but also a unique perspective on life and healing. His experiences have deepened his empathy and understanding, qualities that he extends to his clients and their beloved pets. At VetHaven, Dr. Chiasson is not just a veterinarian; he is a symbol of hope, a mentor, and a testament to the power of perseverance and the human spirit.
