Zoology ’03), and the UF College of Veterinary Medicine where she became a full DVM in 2007.

Lindsey Diley, DVM, Associate Veterinarian
Dr. Lindsey Diley started her career with her sites set on human medicine—physical therapy, to be specific. But then, after her first job at an animal hospital, she fell in love! Dr. Diley graduated from vet school at the University of Florida in 2007, where she also holds a B.S. in Animal Science. Coming to Black Creek since earning her DVM, Dr. Diley loves the caring, supportive environment created by her co-workers, and the great community of people and animals she works with. The innate challenges of veterinary medicine, and the joy that comes from helping patients is truly the greatest reward.
Her practice interests include cardiology, pocket pets, and emergency medicine—she has also done relief work at Clay Duval Pet Emergency Clinic since 2007. At home, Dr. Diley enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends, and caring for her pets: a Boston terrier/Jack Russell mix named Dilbert, and a big, fat, gray tabby cat named Toby. She lives in Orange Park with her husband, Scott and their two young children Mace and Nora.
Caley Price, DVM
Daughter of owner Craig Price and a future veterinarian, Caley Price was first inspired to enter vet medicine after watching doctors help animals on TV with her father. What was then just a child’s dream has grown into a full fledged career, as Caley plans to add to her University of Florida Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees by earning her doctorate to become a veterinarian herself. It’s very likely that she’ll then join the ranks the DVMs of Black Creek—or, as she puts it, “The Crazy Doctors.” The animals in her life include an English Bulldog named Bubby and a Boxer named Vespa.
Cristina Catasús, DVM
Dr. Cristina Catasús was born and raised in Gainesville, FL. After graduating from Buchholz High School, she attended Jacksonville University where she graduated with a B.S. in Biology.

Following graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Catasús completed an internship at the New Jersey Equine Clinic where she treated mostly race horses and performance horses. Next, she completed a second internship at the Miami Seaquarium where she worked with a variety of marine mammals, birds, fish, and sea turtles. Dr. Catasús loves working with all species of animals, large and small.
Now, she is very excited to be part of the Black Creek team where she has the opportunity to work with so many wonderful pets and their families. In her free time Dr. Catasús enjoys horseback riding, spending time with her family, spending time at the beach and on the water and enjoying being a newlywed.
Stephenie Cook, CVPM, Hospital Manager
Stephenie Cook has worked as an auto mechanic, an air traffic controller, and an IT systems manager. She never really expected to find a calling in the veterinary world. But when the opportunity presented itself, the decision to work with animals turned out to be the best one she ever made. Stephenie enjoys her multifaceted role as BCVH’s practice manager, and couldn’t be happier with the job. She is married to her best friend, with plenty of four-legged children—a hazard that comes with working at an animal hospital.

Darlene grew up in a big family (17 children!) and today has a family of her own: two sons, seven grandchildren, a cute dog named Tyson, and a big bad cat called Moses.
