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.
