 Meet Our Doctors:

Dr. Wayne Hershberger grew up on a beef and swine farm in Iowa.  He did undergraduate work at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.  He received the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Iowa State in 1976, when he came to Tyrone.  In 1989, Dr. Hershberger and his wife, Elaine, built Town and Country Animal Hospital in Warriors Mark.

Dr. Hershberger's practice philosophy has always been "to go the extra mile" and treat clients and their animals as he would like to be treated.  This is still the philosophy of Town and Country Animal Hospital.  We know we aren't perfect, but we aim for excellence.

As Dr. Hershberger shifts into retirement, we wish him well, and Town and Country Animal Hospital PC continues to "aim for excellence" in its' care of "All Creatures Great and Small".


Dr. Phil AquadroDr. Phil Aquadro has been a part of Town & Country Animal Hospital since 1990, shortly after it opened. He completed undergraduate studies at Penn State, and received his veterinary degree from Cornell University in 1988. 

His interests include all aspects of mixed animal practice, with special interests in ruminant medicine and surgery, dairy herd health, and small animal surgery. He feels fortunate to have been able to pursue his fascination with animals in a profession that also involves working with, and helping, the people who care for them. 

He lives near Warriors Mark with his wife, Maureen, their children, Maria and Ambrose, and an assortment of dogs, cats, and sheep.  Dr. Aquadro enjoys photography, fly-fishing, grouse-hunting, ice hockey and roller hockey, canoeing/kayaking, and just exploring the hillsides, woods and streams with his dogs and family. 

Dr. Maria Grajewski received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Michigan State University in 1998, and joined the staff of Town and Country Animal Hospital in June 1998.  She lives in Warriors Mark with her husband, Scott.  Dr. Grajewski enjoys reading, fishing, and spending time with family.  She grew up in Shickshinny, PA, but is happy to call Warriors Mark "home".


Dr. Laura Newlin grew up in the Warriors Mark area on a beef farm with a "myriad of other critters", including sheep, goats, cats, dogs, horses, ferrets, rabbits, and fish.  She earned her veterinary degree from Ohio State University in 2004, and joined our staff of doctors in August of 2004.  Dr. Newlin and her husband, Matthew, have two children, along with a dog, Wiley, and 2 horses, Chance and Scout.  She enjoys running, mountain-biking, horseback riding, reading, and spending time with family.
