Dr. Kelly Qualls has been practicing veterinary medicine since 2003. She began her career in Tucson, Arizona, where she worked at a busy small animal practice. Her family's love for the south brought her to Georgia in May 2011, where she immediately began working at Cedarcrest Animal Hospital.


Dr. Qualls received her B.S. in biology from Middle Tennessee State University in 1999. She continued her education at the University of Tennessee, where she received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2003.

Dr. Kelly Qualls is a general practitioner with a special interest in internal medicine, dentistry, and ultrasonography. She enjoys working with dogs and cats, but will also see the occasional pocket pet. Compassionate care is her goal! Dr. Qualls wants all of her clients to understand the care that Cedarcrest Animal Hospital has for their pets. "We always have the best interest of their furry companion in mind."
