We are the veterinarians who get on the floor with our patients and carry on as much conversation with the pet as the pet owner. We are focused on compassionate care for each pet. Drawing upon each doctor’s strengths, we routinely consult with the other doctors in the practice.
Our staff is composed of two full-time doctors, a practice manager who supports the staff and their needs, thus allowing the doctors more patient/client time, one veterinary technologist, four veterinary assistants, and two CSRs. We practice with an “attitude of gratitude” for our staff as well as our pet owners. We are blessed to have a competent, compassionate, and content staff to support the doctors, whether it is assisting clients or doctors in the examination room, taking radiographs, placing IV catheters, or monitoring anesthesia. We regularly have staff meetings and “lunch and learn” opportunities to educate and address issues we do well and things we need to improve on. This hospital has a congenial, “hometown feel” where we get to know our clients and their pets with high veterinary contact time.
We would welcome a veterinarian at any experience level to apply, one that is a people person and someone who enjoys educating clients and staff. We are a very client-centric hospital and want doctors and staff to consider these pet owners more as friends than clients. We are seeking a veterinarian that is organized, someone who can prioritize, a collaborator and, most importantly, someone with an enthusiastic sense of humor.
Full and part-time positions available.
