The doctors with a dog

Our Team of Veterinarians

Our team of veterinarians are on a mission to serve their clients as well as they serve their patients! These DVMs are not only incredibly talented veterinarians, they also have a true servant’s heart in their approach to both client and patient care. They are excited to spend ample time at each appointment (we offer hour-long appointments!) getting to know you and your dog, and their goal is to answer every question that you have before the appointment is over. Our DVM team promises to partner with you to provide exceptional medical care to your dog. 

We believe at Good Dog Veterinary Care that two sets of heads are always better than one, and our team of veterinarians work together to collaborate on cases each day. Our DVM team routinely scrubs into surgeries together, reviews diagnostic cases together, and approaches every patient from a “team mentality.” We believe that open communication and collaboration among our DVM team only elevates our standard of incredibly high patient care! Our team of veterinarians is led by our Lead Veterinarian who oversees the medical safety of every patient in our care. We are so proud of our team of veterinarians, and we cannot wait for you and your “Good Dog” to meet our team!
