DR. PHIL FARBER
After graduating from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Farber spent a year in an accelerated internship in the east. He then moved back to the Midwest where he started his own practice which expanded over twenty years to a five veterinarian hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. While in practice Dr. Farber realized the need for the use of personal computers in veterinary practices but no software was available at the time so he designed and developed one of the very first computer systems for veterinary practices. His experiences led him to help other veterinarians develop their practices through consulting with their practices.
Dr. Farber had been consulting with Crossroads Animal Hospital for several years. He came to love the hospital, the team and Bastrop. Upon learning that the hospital was for sale he welcomed the opportunity to return to his passion of small animal diagnostics, medicine, and surgery. He is dedicated to “Enriching the lives of pets and people” and enjoys working with his team to provide the best possible care for his patients.
Be sure to say hello to Dr. Farber and his wife, Stephanie on your next visit to Crossroads Animal Hospital.

Dr. Halley began his veterinary career at a very young age working in his father’s practice from age 6 through high school. He graduated from the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1983. He owned and operated his own mixed veterinary practiced in Lockhart, Texas from May 1985 until May 1997 before joining our Crossroads Animal Hospital family in 1999.
Dr. Halley was born in Mt. Pleasant, Texas and now lives in Delhi. He enjoys spending time with his 5 wonderful children; Lucas, Justin, Joshua, Seth Paul and Sarah. He also has a cat named Ricky. He likes watching Texas A&M and Dallas Cowboys football as well as the Houston Astros and the San Antonio Spurs. When he is not being a veterinarian or watching his favorite teams he enjoys running, fishing and hunting.
“I grew up around animals – son of a veterinarian – can’t think of anything else more rewarding or enjoyable to do.”
DR. KIM TUNMIRE
Born in Sherman, Texas and growing up in Hawaii, New Mexico and Colorado Springs, with her dad being in the Air Force, Dr. Tunmire has always loved animals and knew she wanted to become a veterinarian ever since she was in 8th grade. She graduated with her B.S. in Animal Science in 1981 and earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1984. After working in a small animal practice in Dallas for a year she purchased a practice of her own in Waco, Texas where she was a solo practitioner for 29 years. She then worked as a relief veterinarian for two years before joining us here at Crossroads. She loves all animals but has a special interest in feline medicine and says she “feels very blessed to be a veterinarian”.
She has two grown sons; Hunter and Jake and shares her home with a Standard Poodle named Duncan (who loves to smile) and an umbrella cockatoo named Zeus. When she is not here caring for her patients she enjoys xeriscaping, resale shops, and exploring Texas.
