Why choose this job

We believe strongly that we are the clinic you've been searching for. We are an AAHA accredited 7 doctor practice located in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. We are progressive in our team-based medicine approach, and always strive for what is best for our patients, clients, and staff. We believe strongly in work-life balance; adjusting our schedules and policies as needed to make our clinic one of the best places in the industry to work. Mentorship is also a strong focus at our clinic, having experience mentoring many new or recent grads to be the best veterinarians they can be. To back up our commitment to mentorship, we also passed the newly added optional Mentorship section during our last AAHA evaluation. In addition to general practice work, we also have a board certified surgeon that comes to our clinic twice a month to perform advanced orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries. This allows our GP vets to work closely with a board certified surgeon and provides another resource to help them grow in their own knowledge.


Our full-time veterinarians work 4 days a week. We are not open for regular appointments on weekends, giving our staff better work/life balance. We do offer after hours emergency care (for our current clients only) by appointment - this is rotated through so each doctor is on call about once a week on a weekday, and every seventh weekend.  This allows us to have a doable workload overall, while still servicing the pets in need in our area (since the nearest emergency center is over two hours away). Holidays are never on call. Our schedules are flexible, allowing for your weekday off to be moved if you have a special need in a given week, without having to use vacation or sick time to do so. We also allow some flexibility in your lunch time period if needed to go to scheduled appointments or for family events like school plays and performances.  During a normal weekday, we have 3 exam room doctors, 1 surgery doctor, 8 veterinary technicians/assistants, 5 client care specialists, 1 practice manager, and one assistant office manager on staff. We pride ourselves in team-based medicine. We have a full in house lab (Idexx), ultrasound, digital radiography, digital dental radiography, and radio wave frequency surgical capabilities.  Our medical records are 100% electronic. We are committed to staying ahead of the medical curve and bringing the best possible medicine to our community. We encourage our doctors to seek out continuing education in topics that interest them and benefit the practice. Our drive is to have your medical interest become your “specialty”. Doing so allows for further growth and development for both the doctor and the practice.   Click this link to view a slideshow about our clinic: At the end of the slideshow, you can click a link to take a virtual tour of our facility!
