Hello Neighbor!

HI, MY NAME IS… Lilach Mazor Power.

I’VE LIVED IN ARCADIA, AROUND THE CORNER FROM PARADISE VALLEY, FOR THE PAST 16 YEARS AND I LOVE IT BECAUSE…

it is a great neighborhood. It is close to the best restaurants and bars, and I can easily get to Biltmore or downtown. It is also a family-friendly neighborhood, and my kids get to ride their bikes to see their friends. It’s the best of both worlds.

A TYPICAL DAY IN MY LIFE INCLUDES… I wake up around 5 a.m. and do an hour of exercise––either Pilates or hot yoga. I drive 25 minutes to my office, and I use that time to listen to the news, a book, or a podcast. I arrive at the office around 7:45 a.m. and I usually have a bunch of meetings and around 150 emails daily related to running the business. The afternoons are often filled with business gathering so I try to pick up my boys at 4 p.m. so I can spend time with them, even if it’s just the ride home before I head out again. I try to cook homemade dinners every night I’m home. I love our family dinners and I am on a mission to teach my boys how to cook their favorite dishes. After the boys are in bed, I’ll have a glass of wine with my husband or while I work. I’m in bed by 11 p.m. I need my six hours of sleep, so I am strict about my bedtime.

MY FAMILY IS… my WHY. I am happily married to the one man in the world (I mean it!) who can tolerate my risky personality and supports me 100% throughout this entrepreneurship rollercoaster. I have two amazing boys: Shai (13) and Ben (8). I am loving this stage in parenthood and really enjoy hanging with them. The rest of my family is all in Israel. It is hard living so far from them. My sisters are my best friends, and my parents are my rock.

ONE THING I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT IS…

coffee. I need my coffee.

WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I WANTED TO BE…

the CEO of McDonald’s. I know, it’s weird, but it’s true. I love successful companies and thought I would love to run one when I grow up. I guess I was always attracted to debate driven industries.

THE SONG I WOULD SING AT KARAOKE

NIGHT IS… “I Did It My Way,” by Frank Sinatra.

THE ONE PERSON WHO MOTIVATES ME IS…

one person is tough; can I choose my team instead? My commitment to making their lives and livelihood better is what pushes me every single morning to make magic happen.

THE PERFECT DAY IS… traveling somewhere new.

MY FAVORITE LOCAL NONPROFIT IS…

Arizona Burn Foundation. I was so impressed by their work I joined the board.

MY LIFE IS… a crazy roller coaster. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

THE BEST GIFT I’VE EVER RECEIVED WAS… a ring from one of my favorite employees with the word “Badass” on it. I wear it all the time.

MY DREAM VACATION WOULD BE…

anywhere new, where I can still work online, and explore new places, culture, and food. I live to travel, and I hope I’m instilling the same in my boys.

THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE I’VE EVER

RECEIVED WAS… “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” My parents really made me believe it is totally fine to be who I am, which is definitely different. It took me a while to really get it and embrace it. I’m thankful for their guidance.

Pets Affordable Pet Care

Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit, a convenient veterinary clinic that offers specialized pet care at a fraction of the price of traditional vets, will open a new brick-and-mortar location, at 4727 E. Bell Rd., in North Phoenix this month to expand their footprint to six locations.

Currently, the business provides services all over the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas, focusing on low-cost surgical operations including dental work, spays and neuters, mass and tumor removals, bladder stones, and other procedures.

“Our business strategy was created to provide worried parents with a reliable location for their pets’ care,” says Douglas Patriquin, co-owner and CEO of Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit. “We take great pride in offering treatments and procedures at just a third of the typical price so that more pets can receive the high-quality care that they deserve.”

Many community members are faced with difficult financial decisions, and pet care is no exception. There is a high demand for easily accessible, low-cost pet care, but unfortunately, many financially exploitative veterinary clinics prey on pet owners in need. Dr. Kelly’s brings trustworthy care to the Valley, allowing pet parents to receive the treatments they want without having to make the considerable financial sacrifices requested by many traditional veterinarian offices. Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit, unlike most veterinary practices, specializes in affordable surgical care. They currently have five doctors in four locations in the Phoenix market, including two mobile surgical units, the new Phoenix location, and a brick-and-mortar in Peoria at 8914 N. 91st Ave. Tucson has two doctors in two locations as well. Their unique service menu and convenient access model enable them to serve the entire Phoenix and Tucson metro areas, thanks to business partners all over town.

The practice is unique in that it provides amenities such as an extensive surgical prep area, large surgical areas that accommodate two doctors, a recovery area for post-operative care, in a highly efficient building, with the floor plan designed to accommodate the specialized services they provide; each doctor can perform over 18 surgeries per day.

Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit was founded in 2016 by Dr. Kelly Patriquin, DVM, and Doug Patriquin, who sought to establish a veterinary clinic that could serve more pets. Since its inception in 2016, the clinic has performed over 100,000 affordable pet surgeries, assisted over 150,000 clients, and served over 80 different pet rescue organizations. The clinic expanded by 60% in 2022, 50% in 2021, and 160% in the previous three years. In 2022, they will see another 60% increase while 2023 will add 2-3 more locations.
