Medical Vet Cross Veterinarians



Dr. George A. Bergman

Email: info@bergmanvetmed.com

Graduated from Michigan State University’s college of Veterinary Medicine in the spring of 1954. Returned to Cassopolis that spring with my wife, Neil Jane, and daughter Jane Leigh, and joined my father Dr. R.E. Bergman, Michigan Agriculture College 1921, in practice. Construction of our new veterinary clinic was complete that fall. Since that time the practice had enjoyed the association of a number of graduate veterinarians, graduates of other veterinary colleges, each adding their particular expertise to the practice. My brother, Dr. R.T. Bergman, Michigan State University 1959, joined our staff, practiced for 1 year and then enrolled in Northwestern University in their College of Human Medicine.

Dr. Michael V. Lampen

Email: mlampen@bergmanvetmed.com

I was born about 10 miles east of Cassopolis and grew up on a livestock and crop farm. We always used Bergman's for both our livestock and pets. After high school I decided that medicine interested me but not the human side so veterinary medicine was the natural choice. I graduated in 1977, practiced mixed animal medicine for 9 years in Kalamazoo and then came here in 1986 to practice with the emphasis on small animal medicine. I've been married for 32 years and have 2 grown boys of which one now serves in the Army, and 1 not so grownup dog, (chocolate lab). Off hour interests include puttering around the family farm, and working on/restoring old motorcycles and cars.

Dr. Kathleen Murphy, DVM

I graduated with my DVM from Michigan State University in 1999. I have an interest in internal medicine and really enjoy the interactions I have with clients and their four-legged kids. I am married to a wonderful man, Randy, and our family now consists of two rescue German Shepherds, Blitz and Lacie and one rescue kitty, my sweet Charley, but that number can go up at anytime! I love to travel, hang with my dogs and hubby and just enjoy what life has to offer!

Brooke Lamb

My love for animals began with my 4-H years in Cass County. From five years of age I began showing dogs, horses, and even cats. That was over seventeen years ago now and I am still a part of the program today as a superintendent of the dog program. As a high school student I was honored to be able to start my years job shadowing at BMVC and five years later was hired as a receptionist while I pursued my schooling at BMC-SB to become a Veterinary Technician where I graduated and passed my boards in 2012. I am blessed to have obtained a job where I enjoy coming to work each day, honored to be a part of the 4-H program for all these years, and to have my four dogs, four cats, guinea pig, and horse at home to love.
