    Dr. Kuczek has the rare distinction of being born and raised in Killeen. Both of his parents were local school teachers and he takes pride in helping to support the local area. Every year he sponsors a variety of endeavors such as the Killen Jr Livestock show and the Harker Heights High School booster club.


    Dr. Kuczek graduated from Killeen High School, Texas Tech University, and Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, he originally returned to the area as a mobile  large animal Veterinarian.  He enjoyed being able to travel and has many entertaining stories from this time period, imagine a comedic Dr. Pol episode. After seven years of mobile practice, Dr. Kuczek wanted to broaden himself more and he accepted a position on Fort Hood as the vet for the First Cavalry Horse Detachment, Fort Hood Veterinary Treatment Facility and the Military Working Dogs.  He spent approximately seven years working on the military working dogs, the Cav horses, and all types of personal pets. 


    On 16 April 2016, Dr. Kuczek and his wife Emily assumed ownership of Aztec Pet Hospital. He immediately used his surgical expertise to expand services to include a wide range of surgeries and dental procedures to ensure pets receive the highest quality of medicine possible right here with the Doctors they know and trust. 


    Dr. Kuczek is very passionate about internal medicine and critical care. He seeks out educational opportunities as well as investing in the latest technology to consistently add new capabilities. His goal for Aztec Pet Hospital is to become the leader in Internal Medicine in the area. 


    In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, cooking, watching science fiction movies, and he attempts to shorten the “honey-do” list at home.
