Dr. Mike Biles Associate Veterinarian and Betsy

Dr. Mike Biles
Associate Veterinarian

Education: Auburn University (1980)
Hometown: Bay Minette, AL

Dr. Mike Biles is a 1980 graduate of Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, ranked first in his graduating class. After working as a mixed animal practitioner in Atmore, AL and Albany, GA, he founded Biles Animal Hospital in Bay Minette (where he was born and raised). We are excited to welcome him to our hospital on Tuesday mornings and Fridays to see patients and perform surgeries. Dr. Biles’ passion is surgical procedures, and he has increased our capacity to book not only higher numbers of surgeries but also higher level surgeries, including orthopedic procedures. He is easy to talk to, has a compassionate bedside manner and quite the client following throughout Baldwin County. In his free time, Dr. Biles enjoys traveling with his wife Betsy (pictured) hunting and gunsmithing, but he is quite the workaholic: always doing something to give back to his friends and animals! He has the largest heart of anyone around! AWC is fortunate to have such a wonderful person as part of our team. Dr. Mike is in the office every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday!


Emily Veterinary Assistant

Veterinary Assistant

Emily is new to the AWC team. She was working as a grooming assistant when she discovered her passion for animals and decided to broaden her horizons in that field. When she is not working, she enjoys reading on the beach and spending time with her four fur children: Brodie & Savannah (english bulldogs), Madison (cocker spaniel) & Rylee (hound mix).


Kathy Receptionist


When you call or come in the front door, you are most likely greeted by Kathy, our receptionist. She is the hub of everything at the clinic, and keeps everything running smoothly! Kathy has been with AWC since 2011. In her spare time, she stays busy with her children, grandchildren and 4 legged companions at home.
