He returned to Indiana after graduation, practicing in group practices in Bloomington and Fishers before launching Fall Creek Veterinary. 
Dr. Risser loves the opportunity  for extended, "one-on-one" time with his clients and patients, and especially the role he can play in sharing the most up-to-date and helpful information available to help people best care for their pets.

Though Dr. Risser is excited by advancements in all areas of veterinary medicine, 
special interests include dermatology, endocrinology, and surgery, particularly soft-tissue procedures. His professional memberships include the Society for Veterinary Medical Ethics, the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, and Indiana Veterinary Medical Association (IVMA). He was the past president, and is a current member, of the Central Indiana Veterinary Medical Association and the 2015 IVMA President. He has been involved with the Hamilton County Animal Task Force, been a recipient of the Excellence in Continuing Education and 2013 President's Awards from the IVMA, and been a preceptor for a Shelter Medicine course with Indiana University. Dr. Risser enjoys involvement with his children's schools, working with the Boy Scouts, Campus Life, and the Marching Pride of Lawrence Township, and is on the board of the KidsFirst foundation, which works in the area of international adoption and orphan care. As a proud Texas Aggie, he enjoys being part of the Central Indiana Texas A&M Club.

In May of 2011, he completed a Master of Arts in Bioethics degree from Trinity International University, in Deerfield, Illinois, and is working toward an MA in Theological Studies now. He has delivered an animal welfare lecture at the American Scientific Affiliation, where he is a member.


Dr. Risser's wife, Rebecca, is a Speech/Voice Pathologist with the Indiana Voice Clinic in Carmel. They have three children: son Jameson (15) and daughters Laine (15) and Lydia (14).
