Dr. Cor developed a love for science & animals while growing up on a farm in southern Wisconsin. He did his pre-vet work at Dordt College and then graduated from Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1987.  Fillmore Veterinary Hospital was founded by Dr. Merle Watts in 1956, and after being here a year, Dr. Cor then bought him out at the end of 1988 and became the sole owner.

Dr. Cor loves animals & is fascinated with how they work.  He is also a people-person, and being a small animal practitioner allows him to do both at the same time. 

Dr. Cor met his wife, Brenda in college and they were married in 1985. She is a Physician’s Assistant at a local family practice.  They have 3 children who are in their late-20’s and finding their way into adulthood. They now have a granddaughter and enjoy the role as grandparents. 

His other interests besides medicine include getting together with family & friends, staying active in his church, reading adventure fiction and anything outside; working around the house, jogging, tandem biking, and hiking. 

He loves living here in Colorado & is thankful every day for health, family & friends, work, & the beautiful state we live in.

alex_rahm_boa.JPGDr Alex Rahm was born and raised in Southern California. He was exposed to various animals and wildlife, and grew up especially interested in the snakes and lizards he found in his backyard.

Dr Rahm received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Science at Biola University in Southern California, and also received a Master of Arts degree in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics from Biola University. Dr Rahm received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Western University in Pomona, California.

Dr. Rahm moved to Colorado Springs in September 2011. Dr. Rahm has a special interest in reptile medicine and during his senior year in veterinary school was able to participate in externships with two prominent reptile medicine specialists, where he was able to assist in treating various animals such as alligators, sea turtles, Burmese pythons, and snapping turtles, while also taking part in trap/neuter and release efforts with the wild population of iguanas in the Florida Keys.

Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr Rahm is an avid ice hockey player and fan and also enjoys spending time with his sister in the area and her two Labrador retrievers. He also enjoys keeping reptiles and currently has 3 snakes and 3 geckos.
